12th Anniversary

Last Friday Andy and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary.
Since we both had to work during the day, our plans were for the evening.
Andy arranged for his co-worker Kathy to watch Lincoln and we headed out for dinner.

We ate at Buena Vita which is an Italian restaurant in Lehi.
Then Andy had a surprise activity for me.  A trip to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point.

Neither one of us had been before and it just happened to be opening day.
It was a BEAUTIFUL evening to spend in the gardens there.

Here are just a few of the pics we took during our wanderings:












I am so grateful to have been married to such a wonderful guy for so long!  Life has been crazy at times.  Especially this past year with the arrival of Lincoln!  But he has stood by me the entire time and is an amazing man.

I'm looking forward to the next 12+ years!

7 Months Old!

Yesterday Lincoln turned 7 months old.
He is a pretty cute little stink!





Celebrating Easter 2015

This Easter was pretty low-key for us.

The Easter Bunny did make it to our house, though!
He brought all three of us lots of goodies!


Lincoln seemed to like his basket.  

And of course we are the "mean" parents that made him put on the mask that came with his basket.

But that wouldn't be the only ears the little guy would don that day!

As for activities, we had a lovely brunch down at Chris' house with Jon and his family.

Then Andy and I invited Glenn over for our Easter dinner.  We originally planned on taking a picnic down to the park, but the weather wasn't really cooperating, and the little Link was having a killer nap, so we just ate at our house.  

I did get some festive sugar cookies made for the day, though!


HAPPY EASTER!

Coloring Easter Eggs

On Saturday night we kept up the tradition of coloring eggs for Easter.

This was as close as Linkie ever got to coloring.

We decided to only color one dozen eggs.  So six a piece.






Our finished products.  Nothing too elaborate, but they are still very festive!

We've got to keep up these family traditions!

Random Cuteness

The month of March has been pretty low-key for us.  We haven't had any big activities to write about.  We have mainly been hanging out with our little guy and watching him grow.

Here are some pictures of Lincoln from throughout the month.



New thing:  spitting

Hanging out with mom at work:

He's getting so close to taking off:






We are so glad that we have such a happy little guy!

6 Months!

Can you believe Lincoln is 6 months old already?
Some days it doesn't seem like it has been that long.
But then on other days...

Lincoln has been learning so many new things!
He is constantly rolling over now.
He has become more of a side-sleeper at night, and he has started rolling onto his stomach at night and freaking himself out when he wakes up in that position so he cries out.
But he is still sleeping through most nights.
He still only has two teeth, and he has been eating his veggies regularly.
(Although he doesn't seem to be much of a fan of peas.)








His 6 month check-up went well.  He is right on track with his head size and length, but his weight is slightly below the average.  Even though everyone thinks he is such a chunk.  It's just all stored in those cheeks!

His favorite toys right now are basically anything he can stick in his mouth.

Lincoln is still our happy baby.  He has started giggling more and it is a blast!
We love this little fella!

Carrots!

This weekend we gave Lincoln his first taste of something other than formula and cereal. 

He had carrots!
What a big day!

First bite:

What is this stuff?

Still not sure...

By the look of that face he's into it now!


Really liking it.  Even to the point of chasing the spoon.

I am so glad that Lincoln seems to really like his food.
It is exciting for us to be able to give him new and different things.
Each new thing with Lincoln is an adventure!
