John Parker

John Parker is finally here!!!!!!!! And we are beyond excited! We have been anticipating his arrival for the last nine months, and he decided to make his appearance on July 15, 2009. I am a little late posting this, as he is now a week old, but better late than never.
John Parker's mother, Sarah, is one of my oldest and dearest friends from ever since I can remember. I went to the babysitter's with her and Kara, another one of our friends who is expecting, since we were itty bitty.
Trent and I were celebrating her husband Bill's birthday one night at their house, when she called be back to their bedroom to tell me she was pregnant! So after morning sickness (all day sickness) and her expanding belly, John Parker has arrived! All 8 lbs 4 ozs of him! And he is such a cute baby. When you look at him, you definitely see his daddy. However, after closer inspection, I think he has his momma's eyes and mouth- and she says her feet!
Trent and I cannot wait to give John Parker a little playmate! Congratulations to Sarah and Bill-and the proud grandparents!

This is Trent telling something to Bill in the hospital. I thought this picture was funny, because I imagined Trent probably telling Bill how big our baby would probably be!

And this is the diaper cake I made for one of her showers.

I want to clear it with Sarah before I post any pics of her with John Parker on the day of delivery- considering she had just gone through about 13 hours of labor and a c-section. I'm sure I will get plenty more with momma and her sweet baby!

Disney 2009

As mentioned earlier, Trent and I went to Disney World the week after school was out for a couple of days. It was a very short little getaway!
We love Disney World. I think Trent would go every year if we could afford it. We only went to the Magic Kingdom park this trip and tried to do everything we could there, since we didn't get to see everything last trip. However, our favorite ride-Space Mountain-was closed down due to some renovations.
We cannot wait to take our kids to Disney World in the future! There's something about seeing a child's face light up as they see their favorite Disney character walk down the street right in front of them!
This is the main reason I think we like to go so much... No matter how hot you've gotten or how tired your feet are....When you see the firework show that night, it seems to make you forget everything. It also puts any other firework show you see after to shame!

Way Behind

You would think that we haven't been around a computer since April by looking at our blog, but that just hasn't been the case!
We both got busy with end of school year paperwork. Then we took a quick trip to Disney World (more to come on that later) the week after school was out. Then I started doing some part time summer work, and Trent started the second year of his nontraditional workshops. Both of which just recently ended. feels like we have been busy running around everywhere, and now the summer is just about over! It goes by SOOO fast!
I have lots of pics to update on our blog, but I am in the middle of uploading everything to our computer and organizing them-which can be an all day job when you take as many pictures as we do.
I did want to post this one picture we took a while back of our baby birds, since we left off when they had just hatched. We took this pic a couple of weeks after they hatched. There were three eggs but one didn't make it. So sad! But it's all amazing the see. They hatch...then what seems like just a week later, they fly away. I guess that's what some parents must feel like!
