And a third one. Gram made a little house outta a flower pot so the guest had a place ta put down her head....sort of like a bed.......but more like a house.......




Here's a little video of the little guy....maybe this will give ya a better hint..... I think it's givin' itself a bath here.....

***************************************

This is the first Gram has been able ta get any video uploaded ta Blogger....'n she could hardly believe it was successful....we never seem ta see the progress of the upload like we did taday and fer some reason we always have an error or it just never finishes uploadin' .....but taday, viola, a successful upload....go figure......

Well, Gram got a little video clip of 'em yesterday tryin' ta figure out what his feet are for.......can ya imagine....6 months old and still doesn't realize what feet are for or even that they were his feet until lately......wow, guys, ya all need ta help us get Parker educated before it's too late......how do ya think we can help him?????
