Enjoying the weather

Parker's 1 year stats

Weight: 20lbs 7oz (40%)
Height: 28 1/2in (40%)
Head: 17" (5%)

I could write about this girl all day long...but I won't. She is in to EVERYTHING! Parker loves to walk (close to a run now) all around the house. She loves her big brother and even chases him and tackles him every now and then - of course this is only when Hudson hasn't already pushed her down. She loves to talk and scream. Unfortunately she has picked up on her brother's fits. She is a fantastic climber and a major daredevil. She loves playing with cars, her tea set and anything that makes noise. She is not the best eater. Don't get me wrong, she loves food - just not vegetables, and she is great at feeding herself. We are working hard at getting her to eat her veggies. She is a true joy to be around; her smiles and laughs light up the room. She is still very sensitive and does not like it when other people are crying. She also seems to like getting back at other people - there is a kid that can sometimes be a bully and she decided to push him down; also, she will push Hudson away when he is invading her space. She is a strong-willed little one. We love her dearly! I can't believe she is already 1. Parker, we love you and are praying great things for you.

Ft. Worth Museum of Nature and Science

Today we went to the Ft. Worth Museum of Nature and Science with Christian's parents. We all had a blast! They have recently updated the children's part and it was great. Hudson and Parker had so much fun going through everything. One of Hudson's favorites was generating electricity with a crank and watching things "fly" in a wind tunnel type things. We will definitely have to go back. By the way, I am LOVING that Parker is now old enough to enjoy things like this - I'm already looking forward to all the fun things we can do this summer

A Crafty Week

I do not consider myself (Erin) to be very crafty. However, I have several friends that are not only incredibly crafty but they are extreme talented. I am so thankful for them because they have inspired me to try new things and to be more creative. I have always struggled with creativity. I have always wanted to be a creative and "artsy" person, but that just isn't me....I want the exact steps that I need to take to make it look perfect. For some odd reason this week has been a breakthrough week for me and I have had a blast trying new things and honestly I have been able to worship the Lord through this (usually I am just paranoid that I am doing something wrong). So here are my crafts that were completed this week - a clip/bow holder for Parker and some dish towels for our kitchen

Cake time! Notice Hudson's hand on the bottom of the picture. He was so VERY excited to help her eat her cake.

clean up time

All tuckered out, time for bed.....don't you love the hair


We missed the Christmas snow this year in Dallas:( But, lucky for us it snowed again a few days ago. Hudson didn't want to go outside and play, but Parker was ALL about it. I can't believe how cold it has been this year.

When did our little sweet P get so big?
