A day at the park

We went to the park today and had a great time. They have a train that you ride, a carousel, a water playground, and a regular playground. Parker had a fun time in the water playground running around with the other kids that were playing there. He got braver and braver and eventually got in the middle of the main water area with everyone else. Then we went and rode the train and Parker wasn't really sure what was going on, but it was nice ride. Next was the carousel. Parker knew exactly what that was! He loved riding it. Here are some pictures of our day.

One left to go

Parker had another appointment with his craniologist today. We have been seeing him for about a year now. It was just another check up to make sure everything with his skull is going well. He told us that things are still going well and that he is pleased with the use of physical therapy to treat his skull instead of using a corrective helmet. He called it a "small miracle". The doctor was so pleased that he was showing his colleagues Parker's progress. He is pretty sure that he will not need surgery, but will wait until his appointment in four months to decide that. He thinks the appointment in four months will be his last appointment with him. We just have to keep doing his physical therapy.

A good toddler craft

Parker and I made these Fruit Loop necklaces one day as a fun craft that we both could do together. He would hand me the Fruit Loops and I would thread them on. Of course he would have to eat as many as he could while I was threading, but he was a very good helper. Then he got to eat them once we were done. We made a couple of them so we could save them and put them in our diaper bag to use while we were out and about. I have to say that they become handy when we have been out a long time and he is getting restless. It gives him something to do without a big mess.

Wait there is good news!

O.K. I was totally in distress over the whole Midnight Sun thing that I totally missed that the Twilight movie is now coming out 3 weeks early!! November 21, 2008. The Harry Potter movie has been moved from Thanksgiving to next summer, thus opening up a spot for Twilight! This is so exciting!

It's truly the end!

Well the Twilight books are officially over! Stephenie Meyer was planning on writing Book 1 through Edward's perspective and call the book Midnight Sun. She had posted the first chapter or so on her website and because there was so much excitement about it she decided on writing the whole book. Well I guess she had given out a couple different drafts to people she knew and someone posted one of the drafts on the Internet. Because of this Stephenie Meyer has decided that she will not continue the book. (!!!!!). She also posted the draft that was released illegally on her website so that people would not have to go searching for it. So here it is. I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this book in Edward's perspective. It was really nice to get to know the Cullen's characters a little better. Well I hope you enjoy. It is disappointing when it ends just under half way through, but I guess we all know how the story ends.

Note from Stephen:  In my opinion, she didn't do this because she is upset about it leaking, she did it because she doesn't really enjoy writing and isn't really that fond of the Twilight books.  I think she's just tired of writing and this was a way to get out without looking like a jerk.  I bet she was the one that leaked it.
