five months!

A week late, but here it is… Lincoln is 5 months old!  He is now sitting unsupported, rolling all over and, during tummy time, getting up on hands and knees.  I am so not ready for crawling yet… eek!

Weight – 16lb. 9oz.

Length – 26 1/2 or maybe 27 inches (these are just my rough measurements at home… he’s a squirmer!)

Head Circumference – 44 centimeters

5 months!

Lincoln no longer has much patience for pictures of him lying on his back…

still fascinated with those feet…

and fascinated by his reflection in a mirror… which he is staring at here

happy 5 months!

back to reality

It was a wonderful week in Bend with the family.  We had a lot of fun dinners, a game night and I was even able to squeeze in a power yoga class with my sister-in-law.

Lincoln loved visiting with his aunt & uncle, cousins and especially his Nani & Popi. Unfortunately, I am a TERRIBLE photographer and I only snapped a few pictures all week long.

Most are from my nephews’ soccer games this past Saturday…

it was a chilly day… luckily, we just bought Lincoln a warm & cozy fleece outfit to wear

Husband was crazy without a coat… maybe little Lincoln was helping keep him warm…

later in the day we had to add a hat underneath the fleece hood… chilly!

the boys didn’t seem to notice the cold and had a great afternoon playing soccer…

love the way he posed for this picture… and the sweatband

Back inside, Lincoln had a great time playing in Nani & Popi’s exersaucer…

somehow this is the only picture I got all weekend with Lincoln & Nani

And here are two pictures I snapped on my iPhone at breakfast one morning.  Both of the kids were very sweet with Lincoln…

Now it’s back to real life with loads of laundry, dishes to wash and no early afternoon naps for Mom.  But that’s okay.  I still get to spend every day with this little guy…

thanks Aunt Rose for the Halloween book! I will have to get a picture of him in the cute outfit you sent…

road trip!

After husband gets done with work this evening, we are packing up the car, grabbing baby boy & Riley dog, and heading to Bend, Oregon.  My brother and sister-in-law live in Bend with their two adorable boys, and now my mother and father-in-law live there too!

I am definitely looking forward to spending time with the family– husband is driving back up to Spokane on Sunday, since unfortunately he cannot take a week off from work– but, I will be down there all week.

However, I am not looking forward to the 6 hour car ride, with Lincoln!  Since we won’t be leaving until about 6:30 or 7pm, which is Lincoln’s bed time, I am hoping that he will sleep for most of the trip.  I know we will have to stop a few times so that I can feed him, but I’m hoping that it will be a mostly quiet ride.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I’ll be back in a week, hopefully with lots of fun pictures of the whole family together 🙂
