One Month Old

Lincoln is healthy and happy at one month old.

Can you believe it's been a month already?

My little muscle man:

Just Another Photo Shoot

What a goof!

Time at Home

I have been trying to really enjoy my time home before I have to go back to work.  Somedays it is hard since it seems like there is always something to do.  There are always lots of little things to try to fit in around feeding Lincoln, pumping, feeding myself, and getting ready for the day.

The time has really seemed to fly by, though.  It will be sad for me to go back to work and leave the little guy all day.

Here are some pictures to document my time home with him.

2 weeks!

I really do love this little man!

Silly Boy

Yes, I believe he is our son.....

The Nursery

With all that has happened lately I realized that I never created a post about the finished nursery.

We went with a color scheme of primary colors, and then made sure to add in lots of personality with our decorations.  You will find it is an eclectic mix of pop culture items that Andy and I love.

Items include our original Captain America painting, Star Trek themed bumper pads, a Lava Lamp as a nightlight, various pop culture figures and toys, and lots of books.

We feel that it turned out to be quite the happy little space.

Springville Heritage Day 2014

Saturday was Springville's annual Heritage Day.  Andy and I love to participate in the city's activities when we can, so we try to make it down to the city center each year for this.  It seems to be getting a little bigger every year.

We started by perusing the vendor booths that had been set up.

We ended up buying an original painting from a local artist and we picked up a print from the Springville Museum of Art for a small donation of $1.  Add in the free homemade root beer and it was a great stroll among the booths.

We then headed across the street to check out the new Contractors Monument they had erected near the library.

Oh, and this was officially Lincoln's first recreational outing.  Of course he slept through the whole thing.

We wrapped up our outing with a stop at S.O.S. Drug for a couple of ice cream cones.  We just love the nostalgia of the place!  It reminds us of being kids again.

It was a great afternoon spent strolling around town.  I love living in Springville!

First Few Days at Home

The first few days at home were interesting.  The days and nights were full of BIG adjustments for Andy and I.

But Lincoln helped us along by being such a good baby and by being so stinking cute!

Right after arriving home:

Sleeping like the dead

Lincoln also pulls some of the funniest faces...

 Jessi came to stay with us for the weekend to help out.  We definitely appreciated it!

She helped us give Lincoln his very first bath.  A "sponge" bath of course.

It is just so amazing to see how small he is.  Just a little guy in a big crib.

Andy really enjoys spending time with him.

We also had a few visitors in those first few days.

Dad and Verona made sure to come by.  Dad had a good time with his newest grandson.

We also had a visit from Andy's Grandpa Ferguson.  He enjoyed seeing the baby too!

Lincoln has been changing throughout the week.  It's amazing how fast that happens.
