Finally, an update

Sorry, with the holidays and getting back into the swing of things, I have neglected the good ole blog.  Parker's second Christmas was eventful.  We headed up to VA to be with Michael's family and while there Parker managed to get really, she has now had her first trip to the emergency room.  They thought her issues were just a viral infection but as her condition did not improve (fever of about 104), we got up early the day after Christmas and came home to see her pediatrician.  Turned out she had a pretty extensive ear infection....a couple of shots, an hour later and our sweet Parker was back at 'em.  Amazing!  However, Parker did decide to share her infection with her cousin Wrenn and her Pap while there.  She has a bad habit of sharing her infections.  So, we thought we were all better, finished up the holidays and then on her 4th day back to school, I held her out as she had the sniffles....come to find out she had a respiratory virus that kept her out of school for 3 days (and me out of work).  She recovered from that but then managed to pick up a stomach virus and has been out of school all this week...I am sure my boss has about had it with me by now.  Parker also shared her fun illness with the rest of us. Unfortunately for Michael, he had more of it than I did.  So, I am hoping that next week we can move on from all these illnesses and get back to work and school (someone has to pay for all those Dr bills :)

Other than all the illnesses, Parker thorouhgly enjoyed the holidays and all her neat presents.  She has been playing with all her new toys while she has been at home....perhaps that was her plan all along :)

Here are some recent pics:
