Prayer Bear

This little bear has reinforced the fact that I think Parker is the sweetest baby in the world. My mom gave him this bear when he was born, and when you press his belly he says a prayer:

"Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
that the angels watch me through the night
and keep me in their blessed sight.

We give him his bear every night before bed so we can say our prayers together. As soon as he hears the bear, he gets so shy and bashful, and gets the hugest smile on his face (so huge that his paci usually falls out). Then he usually hugs and kisses the bear the whole time it is praying.
There is no doubt that we have the most adorable little guy. I always have loved prayer time, but this brings it to a whole new level. :)

(I know these aren't the best pictures, but it was pretty dark in our house. Oh, and excuse his crazy hair, he just had a bath!)

I love these pics. You really need to get a video of his cute/shy smile he gets on his face when "prayer bear" speaks. Such a sweetie pie!!!

I'm missing my baby! A Parker smile always makes the day better. I hope he feels better really soon!
