Anytime the pantry is left open these days, this is what happens.  Parker takes off to the pantry, grabs Bella's food and heads to her bowls to fill her up (not really, but those are his intentions)!

I was not able to get to my camera fast enough to catch him in the pantry but here he goes rounding the corner to the dog bowls!

He is always trying to be so helpful!  I hope this last through his teens!!

five days.

This Thursday I head to Texas to host a baby shower for one of my best friends.  I am so excited to celebrate with her and to spend some much needed girl time with my favorites.
However, it will be the first time I leave my little man. 
The longest I have ever been away from him in 16 months is 24 hours.  Just the thought of the leaving him makes me cry and I get knots all in my stomach.

I had no idea that this was going to be so difficult for me.

Dont get me wrong, I completely trust my husband. 
I know they are going to have a great time and that he is in amazing hands.
(Parker's MiMi and PaPa also happen to be coming in town to visit this weekend too)
But at the end of the day I feel like no one can do as good of a job taking care of him as I can.
Afterall I am the one who is with him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  I know what every noise means, every cry means, ever word(that may not be a real word) means.   I am the one who consoles him when he bumps his head or has a fall.
I know that he will be fine without me, I know I need this, I knew this would happen eventually, but I honestly do not know how I am going to do being away from him for so long.

Have you dealt with this?  How did your first trip away go?

Please pray for Julie.  A mother and wife who has lost her entire world.
My heart hurts for her her.

I was told of her story through another blog I follow.

She needs all of our prayers right now.  I cannot even begin to imagine what she is going through.

The Easter Bunny

Saturday we decided to venture out to see the Easter bunny!  Hard to believe Easter is almost here and we are still have such cold temps...someone please tell the northeast that it is SPRING!!

 I was not too sure how this meeting with the Easter Bunny would go, you know...since Santa got a foot in the face!

When we got there I expected long lines (waited forever last year, and it was the weekend before Easter), but nope we walked right up(i think its bc the Bunny this year was not as cute!).  The Bunny walked right over to us and Parker seemed to like him.  He gave him a high five, started to pet him and even let him hold his dump truck(that we take everywhere!).

We walked over to his bench and I put P in his lap...still doing good.  Its when I turned around and walked off that little man lost it!

The girl taking the pics got this one and we were done!  As soon as I picked him up the cries stopped and he turned, looked back at the bunny and waved bye bye!!

Honestly, like I said at Christmas I love these crying photos! 
 I mean I wont get photos like these forever and I love them! 

Here is his Easter bunny pic from last has he grown so much??

My baby is such a big boy now!  Tear.
