We're Growing!!! [Parker Edition]

4 months:

Our littlest man is four months! Things are getting more and more fun around here. Landon loves his little brother and loves to make him laugh (and he may be better at it than anyone else). Parker LOVES his big brother. He always watches Landon with a huge smile on his face. I just can't wait for these guys to grow up together and be best of friends.
Parker is still a strong little guy, both physically strong and strong-willed. He wants to stand all day long and if you put him down where he doesn't appreciate he can roll or scoot/shift his body to where he wants to be. Recently, at the doctor's office, they tried 5 different times to test his oxygen, two different people administering, but he was so active, they couldn't get a read. They just asked, "Does he always move around this much?" The doctor's visit brings us to the next milestone....
Unfortunately, this month brought Parker's first illness. He has been battling bronchiolitis  and it's been a REAL rough week in the Butler house. I recommend two kids, I don't recommend two sick kids at the same time. Fortunately, Parker is finally on the mend and I'm sure we are going to start catching up on sleep any day here.

On a brighter note, I love this guy's laugh! I have a feeling he is going to have a big belly laugh when he grows up because he can really let it out, when he wants.  Here's a little video of our giggling boy, who happens to LOVE compliments:

Parker is growing up so fast!I can't wait to see what the next few months bring.

Oh I didn't know it was bronchiolitis he had! That is a huge bummer and so exhausting. Charlie got that when he was just a month old. Breathing treatments every 3 hours! Luckily I just had one! Two sicks kids is the worst!!

glad you're all on the mend!
