At three years old, it’s impossible to spend thirty minutes with Parker and not see evidence of Aaron and I in her. Not just in her blue eyes or sandy brown hair, but her mannerisms.  The way that she loves to take pictures, can give side eye, or thinks of every little detail like her dad.  She always checks to make sure the alarm is off before she opens the front door in the morning and “checks the weather”.  If we are going somewhere new she wants to know there will be a car seat and a bed for her there.
