Parker is 3!

I can't believe my little Prince is three! I've been blogging about Parker since before he was born. That is crazy for me to think about.

At 3 years old;

... is officially potty trained!! No diapers at night or when we are out of the house. I'm so proud of him. Parker had been using the potty since before our move to Montreal, as long as he was nekkid. He always struggled with telling us when he was wearing underwear. When I finally said to my hubby that we are doing this, we are going to get him fully trained. We picked out regular underwear, some stickers, made a "train" chart and Parker was fully trained within the month. I'm so proud of him and how well he has done since.



...can say his ABC's and counts to 15 in English and counts to 5 in French
...can say quite a few french phrases like, "my name is__," " I'm sorry," " please and thank you,"hello" and "goodbye."

...starting to recognize some letters of the alphabet when you show him in books and also recognize numbers
...recognizes most shapes and colors
...working on tracing letters, shapes and numbers.
...learning to use his scissors to cut shapes.

Parker also has a wonderful imagination. I blogged about his imagination in a recent post about him last month. Though, I think our whole family has been blessed with an overactive imagination. Evenings at our dinner table can become quite interesting, and I love it!

Parker is such a smart little guy, on top of that he is a ladies man! He is always flirting with girls and seems to always have a girl around him when we go to the park. One time he had 3 girls around the age of 6/7 walking him all around the park. Taking him down the slides, swinging him in the swings and building sand castles with him. Just before his birthday we were riding on the bus and I looked over to see him holding hands with a random lady on the bus. Her boyfriend was chuckling. It's kinda odd and cute at the same time. Nolan and I always joke about it. I guess we will be keeping a very close eye on him as he gets older.

Happy Birthday Parker! We love you so much :)

Eliana is 11 months old!

We missed a monthly update! :( August was a crazy busy month. Parker turned 3, school started for Vanessa, in laws were in town visiting and a scary trip to the ER.

Current stats: 

Weight: 19lbs 2oz (25th percentile) 
 Height:  27.50" long (10th-25th percentile) 
Clothing size: Wears 9mo & 6-12 months
 Shoe size: doesn't like wearing them, but she fits in a size 4 or 12-18 months 
At 11 months Eliana;

...took her first steps at exactly 10 months (8.11.13)
...started walking officially on 9.1.2013
... has 6 teeth, no new teeth since around 9 months old
...still barely eats any sort of solid foods. We offer her food at meal times, but she eats only a few bites.

...her hair is starting to grow in thick. It's hard to tell, but it looks like it might have a little curl to it. 
...her eyes are starting to shift to more of a blue/green color. She has this beautiful brown band in her eye color too. 
...walking has made her so much more independent. It's a nice break for me during the day because Parker and Eliana play so great together. As long as Eliana doesn't try to touch Parker's trains, lol.

 ...she talks a lot too! She mimics her brother at all times. Sometimes, especially dinner time, that can be slightly frustrating. 
...says; "mama," "dada," "Parpa(Parker)," "sisa (sister or Vanessa)" and "kitty,"

We are working on getting her birthday party together. Her theme will be, "Milk and Cookies." I'm obviously more excited about it than her, but it will be fun. How has it almost been a year already?

We love you so much little miss! Happy 11 months :)
