my mother in law (who is watching parker this week) commented that parker is a very advanced crawler.  she took him to a playland and said he was crawling all over the towers that the other toddlers his age could not climb.  i've never really compared parks' crawling skills to others, but i think part of the reason he started walking late was because his crawl is so efficient.  parents claim life totally changes once babies start walking because you have to chase them everywhere, but to our surprise, the week parker started walking was no different than than the week before.  when p was 11 months old he could climb up and down the staircase and crawl to a door, stand up, open the handle and crawl into the other room.  playing on the playland at the gym really helped him master his climbing skills.  now if i could just teach him how to point to his nose! :)

pictures of parker in action at a bentonville park:
looking at the slide
going down head first!  the slide was not very slippery so i let him repeat this cyle several times (don't worry, mom, i stood at the bottom of the slide every time)
love yall!

I've been looking for articles for my class on Friday, and I'm again reminded of you.

This is why we should not delay or refuse vaccinations for our children. This could easily be the US in a couple years if people don't keep up vaccinations.
