I am so bad about waiting to give presents so we gave Parker her chair from Pottery Barn a tad bit way early. She loves it! She also loves standing on it so we are constantly teaching her to sit on her bottom, a saying we use very often.

We went super cheap this year and had some pictures taken at Portrait Inovations. We actually went to get pictures of my sister, my neice and us 3 but I can't post those because they are presents to my parents. Parker hammed it up the whole time.

Our Christmas Tree!
Parker has about 3 balls towards the bottoms that we just have made hers, so she can play with them as much as she wants. I didn't want to be having to tell her no every 2 minutes.

Some more cheesy pictures but we hardly every take pictures of just us 2 so I really enjoyed this :)

Sweet Parker on Thanksgiving Day! This time she was big enough to play with all the kids.

My daughter loves jewelry and will say "piiiippppy". I gave her all my old stuff and put it in her own drawer so she loves to play dress up. That's my girl!

The ladies loves fixing Parker's hair at daycare everyday. I really wish I would remember to take pictures of all the neat things they come up with. Parker barely lets me run my fingers through it..I have no idea how these girls get her to sit still long enough.

Parker is saying so many new words, she has about 30 in her vocabulary. She says "peas" (please) when asking for something but we can not get her to say Thank You. We have been teaching her to say Jesus and love those words coming out of her. We also work hard on Love You but thay is another tricky one for her. She loves animals and LOVESSSS, I mean crazy loves books. She constantly wants us to read to her but mainly only the animal books. Her first thing she does when she comes home every day is head straight for the snack cabinet and wants rasins. She is cutting her 15th tooth right now and loves to show people her "BB" (bellybutton) but then she also wants you to show her yours so watch out.  This little girl wears a size 12M in pants but a 2T in, her little chuncky short body is the best. She has begun her fit throwing and half of the time we can't help but laugh because she gets serious about it. She is just changing so much and each month brings new funny quirks about her :) Right now we are planning a Sea World trip for next Spring. She she has a great love for animals and will be close to 2 by then we figured Sea World would be a huge hit.

Minnie Mouse

Holidays are so fun when you get to see them through your child's eyes! Though Halloween is a very strange holiday to celebrate I still think it's fun to dress up and get some candy. Parker got the hang of it real quick...

All dressed and ready for the Trunk or Treat!
 We battled with the ears

Stuffing her face before getting candy

Minnie & Me :)

15 months and new little one to love on...

Parker is 15 months! Her vocabulary is expanding as well as her attitude but she is so much fun to be around!

Getting ready for Halloween...we carved our first pumpkin!

Parker on Halloween a year ago :(

Going for our evening walk

Playing in daddy's shoes (5 fingers) with attitude

won't stand still long enough for a picture...she wants to see the other side of the camera :)

Waiting on baby Jett...we spent the whole day at the hospital and worth every second!

He's perfect! Jett Ryan Fietz

We were so excited to meet him...Jenna & I ran down the hall like little junior high girls

He is so sweet and very quiet...

Parker wasn't too sure what to think..

Kisses for sweet baby Jett!

Start to FALL!

We had a fun, busy yet relaxing weekend! Here are some pictures to recap our weekend!

Parker's first "real" ponytail. The daycare workers have played with her hair before with mini piggies :) her hair is growing like crazy and it's super thick & curly like her mommy & daddy! 

Daddy & P before he ran his first 10K

Good luck kisses <3

She loves playing with tags or paper....oh & the chip clips, new favorite!

Some of Tanner's co-workers

And he's off!!!

Playing around waiting on daddy

After an hour and half she was done!!

He made it!! We are so proud of him!!
(funny story...a 10K is 6.2 miles but after they were well on there way someone realized that they marked it 2 miles really it was 8.4 miles. There were some pretty ticked runners that were running for time. And it was funny for Tanner because he was pretty confused the whole run thinking there is no way this is 6 miles :))

Silly but normal for her

Today she started making a "cheese" face when we held up the camera!

Looks so grown up (notice the chip clips)

Trying to take our own picture, ha ha

First seeing all the animals...wasn't too sure about it

petting the animals

Had to post this one bc of Tanner's position =)

My loves

The baby goat was eating Tanner's shirt

Embarrassed I am taking this picture, ha

Heading home...long day but a fun one!

Long post but we took lots of pictures! So happy it's Fall & we can spend more time outside.
Parker will be 14 months this week. She is learning so much. her newest thing is she thinks every animal is "Abby" (our oldest dachshund)...she just recently started saying (a-ee)'s pretty cute =) Her new body parts we have been working on the past week are her belly & toes, i think she has them down! The toes & nose confuse her though since they sound so much alike :-)

Have a great week!!
