11 Months

Lincoln, my love, my son, my squishy,

I love you dearly and deeply. 

You are walking assisted around everywhere, pulling up on everything.
You can climb the stairs faster than mom and dad.
You can very quickly side step around furniture, take all your books and our DVDs off the shelves.
You are very good at walking while pushing your cart.
You can roll your ball back and forth and push little cars back and forth.
You turn a bath into a jacuzzi with your crazy busy legs.
You wear size 3, almost 4, diapers and 12, almost 18 month, clothes.
You finally have TWO bottom TEETH!  They arrived right around your dad's birthday (Oct. 16).
There are no signs of anymore teeth coming anytime soon.
You are busy, wiggily, cannot sit still.... and we love it!
You hardly nap.  A good nap for you is an hour and a half, we're thrilled when you sleep for 2 hours.
You sleep from about 8:30 to 8:00a.m.
You give hugs, and say AW.
You give wide open mouthed kisses.
You laugh the hardest when you are startled.
You like ham, cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, pancakes, french toast.
You like cheese dip, like queso at restaurants!
You say YEAH and HUH when spoken too and it sounds like you know how to say DUCK.

We adore you, miss you when we're not with you and you drive us nuts when we're around you.  That is just how you'll come to feel about us in the years to come.  I hope always know we love you!

It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
