I’ve longed for the days when Lincoln starts to say funny, witty things. I guess you could say that I’m fluent in sarcasm, and all my favorite people are pretty funny, so I’m definitely hoping Lincoln has a little of that in him. If you’re going to do this parenting gig, it should at least… Continue reading Passing on the Blame
I can honestly say that I wasn’t the kind of woman who had a lot of “I will nevers” before becoming a mom. I am a realist through and through, so I mostly understood that there was no way to predict what life would be like after having children. But even with all of my… Continue reading Apologies
If I’m being totally honest, Lincoln is exhausting to me right now. He never, ever stops all day long. Why do kids have so much energy? Lately he has started what Mike & I call “terror mode”. This is when he gets this mischievous look in his eye, and you just better watch out. He… Continue reading Blockhead
For all of the oh-my-gosh-i’m-going-to-pull-my-hair-out moments, there are many more hilarious and fun moments in my journey through mommyhood. Lincoln has a new passion for “dancing”. I use that term loosely since his version of dancing resembles those moves that sumo wrestlers do where they shift their weight between each foot with their legs spread.… Continue reading Just Dance
Remember this video I posted several months ago of Lincoln barking? Well his barking has been cute and entertaining, but I’m trying to teach him to use words now, since I’m pretty sure that’s the more accepted form of communication among humans. You can see what I’m up against in the video I took this… Continue reading Speak, Don’t Bark
There’s one thing I usually never struggle with Lincoln over, and that’s food. He loves to eat. He’s typically a bottomless pit, in fact. At dinner, he eats almost as much as I do. He loves pretty much all food, but some things stand out as his favorites. Bananas, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi & yogurt. Do… Continue reading Yogurt Drama
I mentioned in an earlier post that Lincoln has learned to bark. Well today I bring you the proof. When he was first on all fours staring into Leo’s face barking at him, we all thought it was a fluke or just something that happened in the moment. It wasn’t. That was in March, and… Continue reading His Bark is Bigger Than His Bite
His new game. He learned that if he takes Peanut’s favorite toy (the red ball), he will get a reaction out of him. Trying to play keep-away.

Flashback. Parker holding Lincoln for the first time. If you listen closely, you’ll hear him say, “He’s prefect!”. Such a sweet moment. Those newborn days go by way too quickly.
