I always sing, “gotta shake the milk, gotta shake the milk, gotta shake the milk to make a milk shake” because it keeps him occupied when I am shaking the formula up. Now, when he drink milk from a sippy, he shakes it first.
He can click his tongue and tries to whistle.
He learned how to drink out of a straw.
He is now crawling like a champ. He loves going from room to room and always tries to shut the door. He will also crawl to you if you say, “come here Parker”. He is getting really good, and quick, with pulling himself up and climbing.
He started learning to reach for things in his crib. Putting it in the center of the room was my temporary solution. You can see how well that worked out…
Rob was promoted to Tech Sgt. I am so proud of him and was so honored to be a part of the ceremony. There is still so much I am learning about military life but am slowly getting the hang of things.
Parker’s first birthday party was a success! Everyone loved all of the picture collages, decorations and food. The hot dog bar was a hit too! He did such a good job with his smash cake and had a blast with all of his friends. I can’t wait to see the pictures our photographer took!
Here are some of the projects I did for the party:
A Year Of Photos and how I used the Project 365 Pro iPhone App to do it.
DIY Chalkboards Out Of Cardboard
Birthday Cake BBQ Style
BBQ Birthday Invitation
He started crawling on his hands and knees this month and loves to pull himself up. He doesn’t seem to have much balance yet to stand alone but I know that will come in time. Since he was standing a lot more, we decided it was time to get fitted for a pair shoes.
