so yesterday Parker got his first injury. ready for this.... he fell off our bed! You have no idea how horrible I feel! He usually takes a nap on our bed cause he likes me to lay down with him as he falls asleep. He took his nap like normal. I was in our bathroom and heard his stirring but thought hed be okay for a minute while I finished up, less than two seconds later...THUD! followed by crying of course. (washed my hands) then went to check on him and he was flat on his back, which didnt make sense to me how he could of fallen and landed that way because of how he was facing. So of course I picked him up and held him and he cried for a few minutes. Then he was great! I called my brother (ER doc) to see what signs I should watch for the something was wrong. He told me he should be okay but to watch for stuff out of the norm. Well as the night progressed, we figured out what part hit the ground first. He had a red spot on his forehead and around his left eye was starting to swell. He has a little bit of bruising but is completely okay. I'll post more pictures if it gets worse.

This last weekend we headed down to Nashville for my older sister, Shai's wedding. We went down on Friday and stayed in a hotel in Franklin. That night, the girls went out to eat and saw breaking dawn in honor of Shai. The next day was the BIG day! We went to the Nashville temple in the morning, checked out of the hotel, then drove an hour to Clarksville for the reception. We had a family luncheon and decorated the reception hall. It was a super creative wedding! We had a lot of fun with lots of yummy food!

Sunday morning Drew pulled out the guitar for fun. Parker was sooo entertained by it that drew let him try it out. You probably cant tell but he was smiling real big when he got to play it. He loved that sound came from touching the strings. Oh and don't worry, the head phones weren't hooked up to anything, we just wanted to see how he'd like them.
This last saturday we broke out the croquet set to enjoy one of the last warmer days of the year. Some dental school friends came to play too!

Last week Parker and I went to the zoo with our friends Brigetta and Charlie Love. I felt like a little kid again! I seriously havent been to the zoo since I lived in Oklahoma, so atleast 6 years ago! But I loved it! We got to see some super cool animals and even got to watch the tiger being trained!
Parker turned 6 months yesterday! I can't even believe it!! He's so great, lets be serious! Here are his stats for 6 months. 18 pounds 13 ounces. 27 inches long. head is 17 inches. I checked percentiles on these stats and he's completely average (50-75%) his head on the other hand is only in the 20%, which seems crazy to me cause it seems large! oh well, we sure do LOVE this little guy!
