I always think it is interesting to hear about how people come up with names. Originally she had a different name picked out. And then Spiderman came out. Lauren loves the guy playing Spiderman but I don't even know what his name is. During the movie I leaned over and whispered that I thought Parker was a great name (Spiderman's name is Peter Parker in case you don't know already) and it kind of clicked with her. Lauren had a very sweet friend named Jonathon in Jr High who had a very sad accident and passed away and so she always wanted to honor him with a tattoo. And then the baby came along....
My niece wanted to show Parker how excited we all are to have him come home and so, in a strange break with reality, decided that they really had to get him some balloons. But not just any balloons. A life sized Spiderman balloon. This thing is so creepy. It hovers over half our family room. Just in case you don't think this is a good example of perspective. Trust me, it is not an optical illusion, it really is that big!
And finally about that baby pool--- no one won!
We all thought he would come along this next week but he had other ideas!
Lauren so badly wanted him to have a Halloween birthday but missed it by only a few hours.
He came a little too early for that but is healthy and beautiful.
I know this may sound as if I am bragging but he really is the most beautiful grandchild ever.
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers!
