Not the right "Ma"

We had a little relapse last night. When falling asleep, Parker started whining and then that turned into full-blown hysterics. It lasted about an hour and there was nothing we could do to comfort him. I wasn't the right "Ma" that Parker wanted. It is so heartbreaking, but I love that my little guy knows how to love.
The picture above was sent to me yesterday. In my heart, I think this is "Ma." I am not ready to ask Parker yet, but I look forward to the day when he is comfortable enough that I can show him.

Love You

Harrison and Piper went back to school today and I am back at work for my second day. Mike just called me a little bit ago and I could tell that he had stopped by the house. When we were getting off the phone, Mike said, "I love you," and in the background I heard "Love you." It was Parker. Mike was so excited that he tried to get him to say it again, but Parker had stage fright.

In addition to "Love You" Parker's English vocabulary consists of the following:

Screaming NO and pointing (I think he got that from me)
Piper - although it sounds very funny and it takes you a while to realize he is saying her name
Bye Bye
Dada - although he won't say it directly to Mike
and Parker - which is a huge improvement from what he originally called himself - Barker.
