Wow... what a day!

Parker is now living his 5th week of life... and let me tell you, he might just be in control. The child's awake time has been crazy long since he was born, and now each day he gets older, it's like he gets board with just being, he wants some stimulation! Other than contrasting images in black, white and red... I got nothing! He doesn't love his swing, and his bouncy chair is ok... otherwise, he wants to be held or at least sat beside and talked to. I find myself longing for him to be a couple of months old so that we can start playing cards at least.

As I talk about this with my mom, she is silent. Why, because she is biting her tongue instead of saying, 'He's spoiled Chandra!' Well, at this point it is what it is... I will keep you posted on our progress with card playing, I'm thinking I will teach him Uno.

Who taught him this?

Parker Double Fist

Today, my son learned to 'double fist.'

As I stared down upon him, watching him fight to achieve this act and then become peaceful after accomplishing it... I wondered who taught him this! At this very moment, am I proud of him or is this a foreshadowing of what the future holds? All day I pondered this... and then it hit me.

He learned it from me!

and I had a baby!

That's right folks, August 20, 2009 was the most invigorating day of my life. I wish I could experience that day over and over again... but I can't! Luckily I have hours of video footage and lots of pictures! I am working on my birth story to share with the world, so be patient with me please... after all, I do have a new born! 

And that brings me to my question... why is it that this state (sleeping) is so fought by these little precious bundles of light? Is it because they might miss something? Is it because they know that we might for just two hours... think or do something that doesn't evolve around them?!!! Is it because we as parents need to be reminded that for the next 50+ years we will be tested daily by our joyous creations?! Not really sure... I just know my little guy LOVES to fight sleep... but when he joins sleep with a welcoming embrace- he is this STINKIN' cute!
