Dear Parker...

A friend of a friend writes notes to her children on their month-aversaries and I like the idea. So here is a spot to capture your likes, dislikes, and the happenings of the month that you will be able to look up later in life.

You certainly were in no hurry to meet the time I was a little surprised by that, but when I learned you were 12 pounds, I thanked you for waiting so that the doctors could come get you. It was not at all the birth experience I envisioned, but it was perfect and it brought us you!

You've been a very "easy" baby so far (knocking on all wood available). You only cry when hungry, you are quite content to sit in your rocker, on the boppy lounger, or on our chests, and you easily go from person to person who comes to visit.

Music is one of your favorites. We met Aunt Kelly and Madison in the park yesterday and the marching band was practicing and you continued to turn your head and watch every time they started up. You also love your black and white picture book and baths.

While you are eating or hanging out with us, you study our faces intently which we love.

Another big trait of yours is stretching. I have never seen a baby stretch so much...complete with little grunts when you get a good one in!

You are fascinated by trees...our little arborist who studies the trees from her rocker for hours.

This month we have been fairly active for your age. The biggest trip we made was to Minocqua, Wisconsin with Gran, Pappo, Aunt Kelly, Uncle Dan, Madison, and Benny. You were an angel on both of the long drives and had a great time staring at the trees/lake and attending Beef-o-rama.

Other outings include several walks, Ranalli's for the Blackhawks preseason game with Uncle Brian, a family cookout at Papa Bobs, a visit with Hoonzie and Salty, a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo, and a couple well visits at your doctor.

Love you to the moon and back little lady!
