Our First Parent/Teacher Conference and Lincoln's first visit to the voting booth

John and I had our first parent/teacher conference with Lincoln's teachers this week. His teachers have some very loft goals for him over the next few months:

1-Sit up on his own

2-Start eating cheerios and/or puffs (seriously, already...mommy is SO not ready for that!)

3-Hold his own bottle

4-Continue working on the signs for: milk, more, eat and all done

I'm so thankful for his wonderful teachers who take such great care of him during the day. He is having so much fun at "school"!
After his parent/teacher conference we took the opportunity to teach Lincoln all about the democratic process by taking him with us to vote! The election volunteers thought he was awfully cute!

Already 6 Months Old!

Can you believe that Lincoln is 6 months old? John and I feel like he has been a part of our lives forever, but at the same time, can't quite believe how he has turned from a little baby into a little boy so quickly! Here are a few of the photos we took before we got this nicely posed one!

Can I eat this?

No? Well, what about this pillow, it looks tasty.

Don't take the pillow away, it was helping me sit up!

Wonder if Mom will notice if I try to eat this piece of paper again.

Wondering what else the little (big) guy has been up to over the past few weeks?

Lincoln made his first trip to a pumpkin patch...

And picked out his very own pumpkin.

Daddy may have helped just a little...

I was excited about the photo op!

He received his helmet (cranial remolding orthosis...check out the pics of plagiocephay at to see why he needs it) and became a Rangers fan...antlers up!
Okay, I think that catches you up on the highlights.

First Day of School

I'm behind in my posts...I assume this will be the norm and you'll just have to expect that whatever I'm blogging about happened in the past. Life with baby keeps us VERY busy!

Lincoln started "school" the first week of September. To say that we all LOVE it would be an understatement. Lincoln loves his teachers and greets them with a huge smile every morning. He grins at all of the other kids in his classroom and I can tell he really studies them and tries to figure out what they are doing. He's the baby of his class for the moment, so all of his new friends are doing cool things like sitting up and walking!
