It's hard to complain about being pregnant now...with my back hurting and legs starting to swell when I'm on my feet too long. Because I know that she's safe and happy and warm. When it's time for her to come, she'll be on her own. There won't be a single thing I can do for her anymore...and as a parent, that's scary as hell. Most of you reading this will eventually be taking a shift or two helping with Parker. I'm grateful in advance. Parker worries me because he's very smart. He'll have everyone trained to feed him candy beans and french fries on command. He will be staying up until 2am watching Family Guy drinking Mountain Dew with a smile on his face.
All of this being said, I just needed everyone to understand what's going on and how we're adapting and how (I'm speaking for myself now) I expect things to go down. I'm sure I won't be the only one spending nights in the hospital, but when Matthew goes back to work... we have to be realistic about the commute and having at least one parent at home for Parker's stability.

We also took Parker to Lancaster, PA to see the object of his dreams...Thomas the Train. We even took a ride on Annie and Clarabelle (his coaches).

Since the Hamel's moved and we have no friends...Parker had to spend his 2nd birthday with his boring parents and his Nana. We tried to plan something fun with some other kids, but apparently August is pretty popular with Birthday's and traveling. We ended up at the National Zoo, which turned out to be pretty fun for us all.
Parker's new toy fixture is Thomas the train... Elmo still gets thrown into the mix, but when hardcore bribing is called for, Thomas is my ace.

We've been prepping Parker to see Uncle Mark all week. We picked up "The Godfather" from the airport on Thursday and took a family trip to Reston Zoo on Friday morning. Parker got to ride a pony, a tractor, and got to feed all different kinds of animals...including a Watusi. Uncle Mark is expanding Parker's vocabulary and we keep hearing how much he looks like Uncle Kyle.
