After almost a couple months and a few people reminding me I need to update my blog, here's a quick update. I probably have 800 pictures of Parker that I think are adorable, but I won't make you scroll through them all. I narrowed the last couple months down to 5 major events as follows:

1. Best/Worst Day

Matt and I's 2nd Anniversary was on August 11th, but Matt had school so we didn't really do anything special. But to celebrate Matt got us tickets to go see Wicked in Austin. We left Saturday morning with Matt's brother Steve, we ate some good bbq and then Steve watched Parker while Matt and I went to the play, which was so fun to see. That's the best part, here comes the worst.
On the way home the alternator died on our car and we were stuck at a gas station in Salado, Texas for 3 1/2 hours until our amazing home teacher drove all the way out, in someone else's car, to give us a ride back to Dallas, only to get a ticket on the way home. Nice repayment for his service, right? A couple other bad things happened before we finally got home at 1am, but I'll keep the story short.

2. Parker's Blessing

We blessed Parker on Sept. 6th. Below are the Harrison Family members that were able to attend.

Parker and Cousin Addyson.

Sisters and Babies :)

3. EQP, yeah you know me!

As if medical school, being a husband and father weren't enough for Matt he just got called to be our ward's Elders Quorum President. I know he'll do a really good job I just worry because I know he stresses about spending time on school a lot (and that was before)...

4. 2 Months Old!

Parker is over 2 months now, it's crazy! He's getting so big, but I love all the smiles and coos he's been giving me lately.

Height: 23 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 12 lbs 10 ozs (75th percentile)
Head: 15 inches (20th percentile)

I make him wear things to bring out his Canadian Heritage.

5. Babysitting

I am currently babysitting the baby of a friend I taught with last year as a source of a little income. He's a week younger than Parker, his name is Brayden. This is my 3rd week doing it, and overall it hasn't been that bad, but there are definitely those moments...we'll see how it goes.

Nothing too exciting, but there's my life of the last couple months in a nutshell!
