Happy 1st birthday!!!

On October 26th 2012 Lincoln turned 1.  It is amazing how much he has changed in a year.  He has really grown into his own little person.  We are so lucky to have this little guy in our lives.  On his birthday Lincoln went to the Children’s Museum.  He had fun crawling up a ramp, playing with balls, splashing water and observing other children.  Later on that evening he opened up his presents and played with, but would not eat, his birthday cupcake.  The next day we held his birthday party at home where Lincoln had fun eating ice with Gemma, playing with his toys and checking out everybody.  When presented with his smash cake it went the way of the cupcake.  Unfortunately, he would not eat it.  Maybe this means he will be a health nut!  We all had a blast and hope everyone had a great time!  We love and appreciate all of his gifts.  I also loved all of his birthday cards.   I am a card nut so I am saving them so one day he can see all of the cards he received when he turned one.  🙂  On Election Day, in addition to going to the polls with us, Lincoln had his one year check up visit.  There we learned that he weighs: 24.2 pounds (86.67th percentile for boys his age),  is 31 inches long (85.88th percentile for boys his age) and has a head circumference of 19.09 inches (96.57th percentile for boys his age).  Wowsers!  I’m glad to know that I am not going crazy and that it really is hard to fit his head through some of his size 18 month shirts!  🙂  We want to thank all of you who have wished us well and supported us and Lincoln in the first year of his life.  Thank you so much!  Please enjoy some recent pictures and video of Lincoln.

 

Lincoln says hello to all of his family and friends!

 

He’s gonna get you!

 

Lincoln turns one and it’s business as usual…

Water Area: Check! Smock: Check! Now we’re getting down to business.

 

Animals whose young take a long time to mature are cute so naturally you want to take care of them. I think this is why Linc is such a handsome devil because he gets into so much trouble…

 

Mayhem in 1, 2…Lincoln prepares to start knocking down DVDs and games…

 

This jelly stuff sure is neat!

 

Lincoln was surprised when he got mail! “A large package for me?” he said. Thanks Sean!!!

 

Oh noes motorcycles!!! And so it begins…

Walking time…walking time…

 

 

 

I didn’t take many pictures for his birthday or birthday party (I guess I was too busy doing stuff 🙂 ) and I am also not the best picture takers so you’ll have to wait for Dan’s uploads to see some great pictures Dan and Alyssa took of Lincoln.  Don’t forget: if you want to see lots more pictures of Lincoln, us, the dogs, state fair animals and eats, etc. you can visit my flickr page at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blueloba/ (Dan’s flickr is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/flet/) and then there is always youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/carmenflettre
