parks james | five months

every month gets sweeter and sweeter. and better and better. 
parks has developed the cutest personality... let's just say that i didn't have to work very hard for these smiles this month! i am trying to savor each and every day and am so glad God chose me to be his mom. 
milestone blanket: batzkids 
who's cute? me. 
bath time is a favorite - every time 
we love to put jams on {loves the 'bare necessities' and 'don't worry, be happy'} and he loves to splash and play with his rubber ducks 

here is a five month update:
almost everything regarding his likes/dislikes, etc. is the same as month four so i thought i would share a little differently this month
