FC: PARKER ELIZABETH Birth to 1 Year Old
1: PARKER ELIZABETH Birth to One Year Parker I make these books for all my beautiful, wonderful, and lovable grandchildren. Yours however is special to me because I get to live your life through these pictures that Daddy and Mommy and other people have taken of you because I can't be with you like I would like to be. Colorado is a long way from Michigan and Papa and I see you whenever we can but sometimes it just isn't enough and that is when these pictures help to make us feel close to you. Having had the pleasure of babysitting you a few days at a time, Papa and I have come to the conclusion that you are very independent and head strong with a mind of your own. You are so much like mommy that way, yet you look just like daddy, so I would say you are a very good mixture of "Tarara with a little bit of Parker". All our love, Gramzie and Papa 2/20/2011

8: This is my room. Mommy and Daddy had a Blue Moon artist make these Dr. Seuss pictures for me. Blue Moon is a beer brand by the way. I think a simalac artist would have been more appropriate.
12: Me LOVING Daddy | Mommy learns how to multi task | My what Big feet, and look at that Buda Belly | I think two was just one too many
14: These two are my Papa and my Daddy. One is the self- proclaimed Poop Master, and the other is the self-proclaimed Supository King. They are a big help to Mommy.

24: My introduction to ice cream. I was at the Denver Zoo. As you can tell, it was a GOOD experience.
25: THE DENVER ZOO Mommy and I went to the zoo with KC and Ava when they came to visit me. We had lots of fun and by the end I was very tired. Check out the size of my thighs. Lots of rolls.
