My Parker is 4...

This post is a little overdue. We celebrated Parker's 4th birthday the night before the movers came to Indiana. It was a wonderful night visiting with our friends. Goodbye hugs were flowing.. Along with a few tears. It was such a special experience for our family. 

In the midst of all of the moving craziness, I wanted Parker to have a special party. We invited 16 friends and rented a party room at Monkey Joe's. To say he had fun is an understatement! The kid was pouring wet with sweat within the first 5 minutes of the party. 

I wanted to look back at a few pictures of my precious baby. 

This is Parker in the hospital. He was such a beautiful baby!

Turning one!

Turning 2! We had a Blue's Clues birthday party. 

Parker at his 3rd Birthday. It was a Lightning McQueen party. 

4th Birthday with an awesome Batman theme! :)

Some of Parker's most precious friends were able to come. Some from the neighborhood and some from school. Katie and Max are in the picture and they were his closest friends. They both lived in our neighborhood.

Of course Preston was dressed in Batman gear too!

Here are just a few of my most precious friends. 

 Mommy loving on Preston. I got more pictures of Preston because we couldn't get Parker to slow down!

 Maddie and Emma

Parker and Katie
Isn't she precious??? We are already really missing her and her mommy!


Picking out the perfect piece of cake!

 So many precious friends!

We decided to go all out with the Batman theme!

Dear Parker, 
I wish that I had the words to articulate how much we love you. You are growing into such a big boy. You have had so much change in your four short years with moving but you have always handled it with maturity. Mommy and Daddy are so thankful for that. 

We know that you will probably not have too many memories of Indiana as you get older but I hope you know what a special time it was for our family. It was very hard to leave Alabama but God blessed us with precious new friends that we loved like family. 

You make us laugh everyday. You live up to the Parker name by "filling a room with sound" but we wouldn't have it any other way. We are excited to see life back in Alabama. 

You are a precious child that is loved more than you will ever comprehend. 

Happy 4th Birthday, Parker Holt!

I hope you and your sweet family have a wonderful Christmas!
