Mam'me and Pop came by for a visit to see the kiddos tonight. Parker enjoyed pop playing trains with him, and Mam'me was able to love on Nevin Claire. It is nice to have family close by!

Nevin Claire was 11 weeks old yesterday. She also had her first "school" picture made today. I was able to see them online, and they turned out great! The ones of the two of them are my favorite...Parker just loves his sister so much! Here are some things Nevin Claire is doing now:
- Sleeping all night...10-6 (I actually wake her up at 6 to feed her because it fits with my schedule)
- Eating every 4 hours about 5 oz.
- Still naps a lot
- Follows people and responds to voices
- Smiles all the time
- Loves her bouncy seat and mobile
- Loves it when Parker holds hands with her
- Enjoys her bath when the water is really warm
- Rarely ever cries
- Attends school with Parker and loves her teachers
- Wearing size 1 diapers
- Can still wear newborn clothes
I can't even imagine how life was without her...she has completed our family! We love you so much, Nevin Claire!

When we returned home from the carnival...Parker immediately dug into the candy. He ate 2 suckers and some chocolate. He may be up all night long from all of the sugar. I sure hope not!! He enjoyed playing in the tub while eating the candy. It worked for me just fine that way all of the sticky hands and mouth stayed in the tub!

Parker's teacher at school has a birthday tomorrow! We appreciate everything she does for Parker so we wanted to do something to let her know we were thinking about her. Parker helped by putting all the sprinkles on. He was supposed to help put on the candy corn, but he ate most of it while helping! He can't wait to take it to her tomorrow at school!
I head back to work on Monday. I'm looking forward to meeting my kids, it will be like the beginning of a new year for me! I know Nevin Claire will get great care from the daycare where she will be going. I'm going to miss spending lots of time with her each day! I'm just thankful that I had off for as long as I did!
Today, Parker had a picnic in the living room floor when we got home from the doctor. It has been so nasty outside raining that we haven't gotten to go out in a few weeks. So, I decided to let him eat his supper on a blanket and watch tv. He thought this was the best thing ever!
Nevin Claire went to Dr. Boldon today for her 2 month checkup. She is just perfect! Parker had to go today also because he had a sinus infection. Here are the stats for both:
10 lb. 3 oz.
22 1/2 in
2 years 6 1/2 months
31 lb. 2 oz.
37 1/2 in.

Ninny came to visit us this past weekend. Mimi picked Parker up from school on Friday, and Ninny drove to Clarksdale. Parker enjoyed it just being them on Friday night. On Saturday, Ninny came to stay at our house. She couldn't wait to get her hands on miss priss! We don't have a picture with Ninny and Parker because he wasn't still long enough...imagine that!
On Saturday afternoon, we helped Breland celebrate her 2nd birthday. She had a hayride birthday party out at Big Daddy's Apple Farm. It was lots of fun. Nevin Claire slept the entire time in her carseat! Parker loved being able to run around outside. The kids took a hayride driven by pop! The bouncy house was a huge hit...all the kids loved jumping. Uncle Matt fixed hot dogs and Aunt Chris made some delicious dips. The cake looked and tasted so good, I will have to post a picture. It was pumpkins that matched her invitation. The party was a huge success, and we are glad Bre had a great birthday party!
