The goings on in the Parrish household...

We've had lots going on lately, so please forgive cramming all of the happenings into one blog entry!

We've been painting (the outside of) our house over the past two months, and it is pretty much completed! We had a huge black snake come and watch the production...yikes.

See below for the grand reveal (TA-DA!):

JR started walking last week, so we have been chasing...he is so happy and very proud of this new accomplishment. He has also started dance-walking in his room (the new moonwalk, really, in honor of Michael Jackson); he starts at his music table and runs to the rug, does some funny looking squats (this is the dancing part) and bouncing, and when the music stops, he runs back to the table. This can go on for ten minutes with intermittent giggling and pointing, gibberish and waves to the dogs.
Note JR's newest shirt...HOPE>FEAR, from our favorite online t-shirt website, Sandbox Threads!

In other news...these boots are (not) made for walking.

It's been a while....

We know; it has been a while since we last posted. We've been busy bees....painting our house (yes...the ourselves!), celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary, buying a new (counter-depth) fridge (enter sigh of complete and utter excitement!), moving the old fridge to the garage (now Remsen's beer fridge, which actually holds more soda than beer), watching as JR begins to walk on his own, talk, laugh, joke, get MORE teeth, etc!
Lastly, we've been hoping for the swift recovery of Meredith (in the hospital now after surgery on Tuesday) and Wayne (also in the hospital after surgery today)...send healthy thoughts their way if you can.

We'll be posting pictures of the house (almost finished!) this weekend! In the meantime, enjoy a big smile from our little J.R.!

Memorial Day Weekend

We made our yearly trek to Edisto Island for our annual Memorial Day fun weekend with cousins and friends, and we had a blast...until JR got sick!
Poor baby had to make a trip to MUSC Children's Emergency Room in Charleston (closest doctor on a Sunday night during a holiday weekend!). He's still not 100%, but getting better every day.

Before JR started feeling whimpy, we had some beach time and got some great photos...

Another ear infection...when will it end?!
Fun with cousins Mackenzie and Abby

With Gance and Emme!
