When good ideas go bad

When all a baby wants to do is this....

You probably shouldn't try to make them expeirence this...

I thought it'd be great fun to bundle him up in his snow suit, hat, blanket etc. and let him go out and expeirence snow....
I was wrong.
For the record, we were outside for 4 minutes exactly.  We came inside ate 2 oz. of formula and went back to:
Maybe next year buddy!

Gearing up!

Man I have had a busy end of the week!  First Grandma Stecher wore me out on Thursday.  Then, Grandma and Grandpa Van came and played and snuggled all day yesterday.  Last night I didn't sleep well, I was up at least 4 times.  My mom and dad lost count!  Then today, I woke up at 6AM and have been playing with mom and dad ever since.  They just gave me a bath and a bottle with some Karo syrup. Yawn....I think I might need to rest up.
Today my parents are going to a Chicago Bulls game, so I thought I'd wear this to show my support for their team.  Grandma Van is coming to stay with me.  I better get some rest, I think I'm going to have a busy day!

Ya gotta start somewhere

Parker has started to sit up by himself.  He doesn't do it regularly yet, and he's awful wobbley but he still does it.  Do you remember Weebles?  Weebles wobble but they don't fall down?....well, Parker wobbles and does fall down.  However, when he falls he thinks it's a riot!  He laughs and squeals! We think his little belly his causing him to be a little off balance, but hey
ya gotta start somewhere right?

On a different note, I decided that it was time for me to start exercising.  Crazy right?  I figured it was time after I was jumping around the house in an attempt to get Parker to laugh and got so winded I had to sit down!
So tonight after school I decided I would start with an obtainable goal...just run around the block.  Did I mention I loath running.  I despise it.  My little legs were not built for running.  I would rather have blood drawn than run...but I ran.
Did I mention that we live on an incredibly LONG block!  I made it almost 1/2 around before I had to stop and walk to catch my breath.  Then I ran some more...walked some more...and finished running.  It took me 12 minutes to run around the block.  Most people can run a whole mile in like 7 minutes.  I have a long way to go but
ya gotta start somewhere right?
