My sweet, sweet Parker turned 8 years old on the 2nd of October. This child that was a completely unexpected blessing. Joining us a mere ten months after his sister was born, he is my heart. A more loving soul you will never meet. He is kind and gentle and as compassionate as they come. Parker has had many health issues to overcome. At just 20 weeks of pregnancy, they told us he may not make it. They were concerned he had Polycystic Kidney Syndrome and he would stop producing amniotic fluid at any time. If it were caught quickly enough, we could deliver but even then there was an obvious survival rate issue. But, it turns out he has cysts on only one kidney and was delivered at 37 weeks.
Parker loves soccer and plays his heart out on the field. He always has a smile on his face when he is chasing the ball. All the other parents comment how happy he is. He is also our little fish. Parker will swim in a puddle if it’s big enough.
He is crazy good at puzzles of any kind and has laser like skillllzzzz in video games. His hearts desire right now is a puppy. Truthfully, any small furry creature would do. Parker is an animal lover like his mommy. When he grows up, he says he wants to be a veterinarian and I can come visit and snuggle with all the puppies. Ah, this child. I am so scared for the day he gets his heart broken because he loves with his whole being.
His daddy says he is a true mommy’s boy. I’m kind of ok with that. :) Happy Birthday my sweet, sweet angel. We love you.
