A Book by Dr. Parker

Shane worked very hard last year on co-authoring a book with a friend of his. The book is getting published spring 2010! Here's the link to the book The photo above is his book cover. We are praying God will use this book in mighty ways to impact people for missions! I'm so very proud of you, Shane. I love you!

Soccer Time

So we decided to sign Wiley up for 3 year old soccer this fall. He has enjoyed it, but I think his favorite part is the snack he gets after the games! It is too cute watching those little ones running around out there. They don't have a clue what they are doing and it is too funny! Wiley spends most of his time out there playing in the net, falling down, and tackling the other kids. He can't seem to get it that there is no tackling in soccer :) We are thankful he has a good time and that it's such a fun way to get exercise and maybe make some new friends.

Evie has been enjoying cheering for Wiley at his games and practices!

Edisto and Family

We enjoyed a great visit mid September with Shane's parents at Edisto Beach. Wiley went a few days early with them on his first out of town trip without Mommy and Daddy and had a blast. Thanks Motty and Poppy for the special memories he was able to make with you. We came a few days later. Evie got to have her first trip out on the beach and enjoyed a nice nap while there. Beautiful weather and beautiful time with family!

Sibling Fun!!!

Wiley and Evie always have fun together. Wiley loves playing with Evie and always asks to do so. Evie eats up every minute with him and it's obvious in her eyes that she absolutely ADORES him!!!

Wiley loves to get in Evie's crib with her. The other day when Evie awoke from her nap, Wiley climbed in the crib and they enjoyed Daddy reading them a story.

I love watching them play together and am praying they will grow to be best friends, always loving and putting the other before themselves.
Wiley loves when Evie "tickles" him - of course, as ticklish as he is and with her little fingers, any kind of touch from her absolutely makes him squirm and laugh!!!

Lord, thank You for allowing us to know Wiley and Evie and for the privilege of being their Mommy and Daddy. Please grow them to love You and to love one another more and more everyday. May they always treat each other with love and respect. May they encourage one another to look to You and grow in You moment by moment. Give us the wisdom to raise them to be a man and woman who fear You and seek to honor You in all they do and say.

Evie is 7 Months!

This has been a big month for Evie. There have been lots of firsts!!!

* First started crawling - September 21st, 27 weeks old

*First pulled up and standing - 28 weeks old

* First ate solids - 28 weeks old
* First time on the beach - September 14, on her 7 month birthday :)

* First started babbling. Her new sound is "buh, buh". Wiley is very encouraging as her older brother and often says, "Good job saying your buh's, Evie!"

* She is about to cut her first two teeth on the bottom and is drooling everywhere and chewing on everything!
