I have done really bad the past few weeks when it comes to blogging. I am still trying to catch up at work from going out of town over Thanksgiving. Maybe I can be caught up by Christmas!

....Well, not really walking by himself. A few weeks ago Parker's physical therapist let us bring a new contraption home. It is a walker without the seat. It kinda looks scary. HE has been practicing. Up until this week he couldnt make it very far. He would get so tired and wasnt very coordinated. This week he has started doing soo good. He is getting all around the office! He is still working on walking around things, like holding onto the coffee table and walking around it while holding it. Here is a video of Parker walking in his contraption.
Also, we started Parker on Pediasure yesterday and he loves it. The nutritionist at ACH suggested we try it since the doctor is worried about his weight gain. It has 30 calories per oz. so, we replaced formula with pedisure. I hope it helps him gain weight.

We had a very busy weekend! On Saturday we went to Sydney's first birthday party. Sydney's mom and I were pregnant at the same time, Parker and Sydney are 2 1/2 weeks apart and are best buddies.

Over the past year I have been helping to plan the Miracle Ball. It is a fundraiser for Arkansas Children's Hospital that the Auxilary puts on every year. I have been a member of the auxilary for a couple of years because ACH has always been close to my heart, but over the last year it has become especially close to my family because of Parker. I am a member of the auction commitee. We get together items for the silent and live auction. Well, I have met a wonderful blogger, Kim, who is an amazing artist. She agreed to donate a gift card for a personalized painting. She also made me a small painting for Parker so that I can display her work at the auction (so people can see how cute her art is!). She is such a wonderful lady and I am so grateful to her for believing in and contributing to a cause that is so close to my heart! Thanks KIM!!! Here are some pictures that she posted on her blog. I should get the painting in the next couple of days.
These coordinate with Parker's bedding!

Well, I never got to show yall the cakes I made for Parker's birthday party. It was my first cake decorating experience. My mom use to make and decorate all of our birthday cakes, so I wanted to do the same thing. She taught me all of her secrets!

Parker had his one year pediatrician appointment yesterday. He got all of his shots and his second flu shot....it was not a fun time! He weighs 17.1 pounds. Since his 9 month checkup he has fallen off the growth curve even more in all aspects (weight, height...). His doctor was kind of worried about him but we think it is just because he is so mobile now. He is so busy all time, now that he can get around!! I am suppose to talk to his dietician today and we are going to work on a one year old's meal plan with a few extra calories. Another thing that is frustrating me is that I CANNOT get Parker to drink from a sippie cup for the life of me. I think he is going to be the oldest kid still on the bottle! If any of you moms have some tricks for me...PLEASE, I would love to hear them! I will let you know how the consult goes with the dietician.
Anyways, I got the proofs back from Parker's one year pictures. Go here and please look at my precious baby! They will only be available to look at until Monday, Dec 8th. I am going to have such a hard time deciding. Also, I got my Christmas cards in. I guess I should take a picture of them and put it on here because they are so sweet! I will do that on the next post. Well, I need to get back to work...i am so behind since we went out of town last week. Oh yeah, I need to put some pictures from that trip on here too! Wow, I have alot to do. Soon to come!
