Carmen and Dan's New Edition

October 26th, 2011 and October 29, 2014

Summertime

Lincoln is enjoying his summer.  He has mastered the art of climbing out of his crib so now it has been converted into a toddler bed.  At first I thought he was using the rocking chair as leverage so I rearranged his whole room to have no furniture that he could use as leverage next to his crib.  I was wrong.  He actually pulls himself up and over as if he was trying to get past “the wall” in a tough mudder race.  He puts one leg up, then pulls his body up and balances his body on the crib rail and puts his leg over and drops.  Sometimes gracefully…sometimes not.  Hence the crib toddler bed.  He loves to wave hello and good bye now and will often wave with two hands quite enthusiastically.  He will also say: “Hello” when doing it if he is feeling generous even though sometimes it sounds like :”Ah-lo” So, Dan and I have been doing our horrible English accent impersonations with lots of “Ah-lo guv’nor”s!

Here are some pictures and videos.  Enjoy.

Debut of his first haircut.

This is what I found after going to the kitchen for something to drink. I was super sick and apparently Lincoln decided to imitate mama by pretending to blow his nose…  (We’re 99% convinced that I was sick with ball pit-itis).

 

 

The other day Dan remarked about to Lincoln: "You used to fit in that!"  Man, look at how much he has grown.

In his now converted big boy toddler bed with Jingle. (Jingle is a Hallmark product that barks, etc. at certain parts of a story.  Super cute.  Until you're reading the same 2 Christmas stories all year long...)
