parker might be the wildest 14 month old ever.
exhibit a: he loves to crawl off the steps in the pool into the deep end and dunk himself. they expanded our neighborhood pool by connecting the baby pool and big pool this year, creating a scary trap for young ones. we wanted parker to know that he cannot go past the edge of the steps into the deep end, so we let him go under a couple of times and swooped him right up. however, this backfired and now parker LOVES to go off the stairs and dunk himself as a game. it is so obvious that he is doing it on purpose because he always takes a big breath before stepping off the edge. oh well, i am just thankful that he loves the pool and water! here is a lil' video of him splashing.
exhibit b: pulling all of the books off the book shelf (and food out of the lazy susan, lotions out of the bathroom cabinents, etc). it does not help that he can open every single door in our house now. ahhh so much for shutting him out of non-baby proofed areas. here is a lil' video of him and his friend grahm making a mess...
exhibit c: parker demonstrated tonight that he can climb onto mini motor vehicles and drive them! we were playing outside with my next door neighbor's two boys and parker ran over to the 3 year old's fourwheeler, hopped on, and figured out how to use the gas pedal within 30 seconds!
parks, you are truly a rascal. all boy, all the time, always got to keep an eye on you. but that's why we love you! muah!
