He's not two is he!? That's gone by so fast, and I haven't even met the cute kid. And what is it with kids loving anything with noodles? My kids will eat anything if it has noodles in it.

Happy Birthday Parker! I personally love the "Parkercito" song the best! I love how Joe starts it with "Paaaarker"....and Parker finishes with "ceeeeto". What a cute little boy!

Tina said...

You have a 2 year old? Are you old enough? Happy Birthday to your cute little guy!

What a fun memory this will be for Parker when he's leaving on his mission (or getting married or having his 1st child . . .) He is such a sweet boy and SO SMART ! ! ! I LOVE PARKER

Yea for 2! What a good year and so many accomplishments to come! In the words of Ellie, "Happy Birthday, Parks!" We love you big guy!

Michael said...

I was hoping that by today you would have figured out the picture problem. Too bad. It was fun to see Parker so excited about his book and so unexcited about his new clothes! Happy 2nd birthday, Parker!

Happy birthday to your darling boy! I love the interview idea. Might steal it for a future post (crediting you, of course!)

Mandy said...

I can't believe he is two already! And I miss all of those movies! I loved watching incredibles and ice age...Emma is too cool for those now! I can't believe he knows his ABC's already...he must be a genius!

Megan said...

It is so crazy how fast time goes. Last time we saw you, Parker was just a baby! He sounds like an adorable boy! Happy Birthday to Parker!

Second birthday, wow! It was fun reading all the things he does...it reminds me of Zac! Like you said, we are totally going through the same things and the boys seem so much alike! It's so fun when they learn new things...my favorite is the songs! I love when Zac sings along with all the songs in the car or just bursts into song randomly throughout the day. Today he was actually making up his own song about Buzz Lightyear (his favorite) and Mr. Incredible (he loves that movie, too)! Boys are so fun!

Kimberly said...

I still can't believe he's 2! Wow! Happy Birthday, Parker!

Aly said...
