2 weeks

Parker had his 2 week check up last week and it seems I need to start stashing money away for food. So far both of our boys are over the 90% in height and weight...

Weight: 9lbs 3oz - 91%
Height: 21.25" (when he was born they were generous with his height)- 89%

He unfortunately was given an early Christmas gift from his big brother.... a cold. Luckily it has only been a stufy nose which hasn't affected his eating or sleeping. Speaking of sleep, Parker has been continuing his good sleep habits and sleeping for a few long stretchs at night. We're hoping it continues!

Cooper and Parker saw Santa recently and let him know what is on their wish lists. Cooper actually ran up to him once it was our turn in line. We feel so lucky that he has the confidence to not be unsure of himself in new situations like this.

Welcome Parker!

Last Thursday we welcomed Parker Clayton to the world and our family! He was 22"long and weighed 8lbs 5oz; even though he was the biggest baby born that day, he was still nearly a half pound smaller than his big brother Cooper! We are eager to find out if he will share Cooper's beautiful red hair too! Right now it is light blonde with what we think is some red in it.
So far Parker is much like Cooper was as an infant- likes to eat and sleep and is generally content when he is awake. We never thought we could be so lucky to have two little boys like like this. It is looking more and more like I will be spending MANY hours rink side in the next 20 years. Kevin and I are really looking forward to seeing who Parker is and being able to show him everything we have shown Cooper.

With Christmas only a few weeks away, we couldn't think of a better gift to receive.
