It’s here! Lincoln’s birthday! Our guy is one and what a year it’s been. This time last year I was hadn’t slept in over 24 hours and I had a tiny (or not so tiny, he was 10 lbs 1 oz) baby in my arms and I had no idea what I was doing. Now it’s a year later and I (kinda) have this mom thing figured out and I have the cutest, sweetest, most fun boy in the world. Ok I may be a bit biased but I feel so lucky to have the perfect little guy. This year has not been easy at times but it’s been so awesome watching Lincoln develop from a tiny newborn that slept all day into the non stop moving little man that he is today.
Lincoln started taking a few unassisted steps on his own a couple of weeks ago and now he is almost full time walking. He gets better at it every day. It’s still so funny to see him wandering around on his own. His little walk is so cute. He has gotten good at turning around mid walk, avoiding obstacles and getting right back up when he falls down. He still crawls a little but the past couple of days he seems to prefer to be upright.
We started him on regular milk this past week and he has been doing pretty good on it. He seems to like the taste but I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised since he likes pretty much anything we give him. He eats like a champ and sometimes I am surprised at how much he can put away. There isn’t much he doesn’t like but some of his favorites are eggs, chicken, broccoli, cheese and potatoes.
Lincoln’s one year party is tomorrow so we have been in full party planning mode. More details and lots of pictures to come. I’ll keep this post short and sweet while I get back to baking cupcakes.
Here’s a look back over the past year. I can’t even believe how tiny he was and how different he looks now!
