11 months and presents!!

Well, I am one day late, but Parker turned 11 months old yesterday!! I cant believe he is almost one year. I am so excited about his birthday party, I am sending out the invitations this weekend!! It is going to be an animal theme. Of course here is a picture of the sweet boy...

The puppy Parker is holding is a present that he got in the mail yesterday from a sweet lady, Sue, who heard about Parker through her niece Mandy. She wrote him a sweet letter and told us that she has a special place in her heart and life for heart families. We feel so blessed to have so many people all over the country praying for Parker. Even though he is doing great right now, he will always be "sick". She also sent him this prism. It had a note with it that nothing happens to us without passing through the prism of God's love. We placed it in Parker's window and now when the sun shines through it we will be reminded of God's unconditional and unfailing love.

Parker received another present in the mail yesterday from his uncle who lives in Nashville. My aunt is from another country and she sent Parker a bird that is native to her country. They are sweet to Parker! He had just woken up in this picture!

It is so weird that a year ago I was pregnant with is a picture of what I was doing this time last year....
This is Parker's pumpkin from the pumpkin patch last year! So weird!
