Santa Parker Style






Ho Ho Ho..Parker is happy to oblige countless pictures with humiliating(?) outfits and Santa hats. Could he be any cuter? We don't think so!



I took Parker for his 6 month pedi visit a few weeks back and the report was excellent! We don't go back until he is 1 year to the pedi. Dr. said he is developing as a "typical" 6 month old and even a bit ahead. Dr. commented he couldn't hear anything in his heart. Said he wouldn't believe it if you told him he had a heart defect. We keep praying this is our miracle! He has great strength, bears weight well (likes to stand), and is even starting to crawl. He is still working on sitting "hands free," but he can roll anywhere these days. You can't turn your back for a minute or he's halfway across the floor! He is lifting his tush and pulling his legs under him. He pushes backwards instead of forwards, but it is so fun to watch. He has some new sounds which are loud squeals, but so fun to hear! He is so much more interactive and reminds me of our other kids when they moved from infant stage. Mike always said how fun they were at this age and he is no exception!

We are in the throws of Christmas preparations and have no shortages of parties, programs, and events, but we are focused on the reason for the season. Remembering that Christmastime is God's chosen time. A time for us to receive forgiveness for the wrong things we've done. God sent us a Savior because we need a Savior. If we didn't need a Savior, God wouldn't have wasted time sending one. God sent a Savior so we could receive forgiveness. Forgiveness...all it takes is saying, "God, I don't deserve to be forgiven. I just cast myself on Your mercy." And God says, "That's what I've been waiting for. You are forgiven."

Thank you Lord for forgiveness!

God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17 NLT)
