I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  We drove down to Bend, Oregon again to visit with Lincoln’s Nani & Popi, Uncle Steven, Aunt Jen and cousins Andrew & Connor.  We had a great time.  Here are some (a lot) of pictures from the long weekend.

We got in late Wednesday night, but Lincoln was up bright and early on Thursday morning.  He must have been excited for all of the festivities 🙂

Thank you Rose & Natalie for the adorable outfit!

We are using a plan called ‘Baby Led Weaning’ as our guide for introducing solid foods.  (For more information check out links here and here.)  The general idea is that rather than beginning with purees and spoon-feeding, you let baby feed themselves from the start.  It’s definitely the messier route, but Lincoln seemed to have a wonderful time “eating” sweet potatoes at our Thanksgiving dinner.


After just one day, Nani & Popi’s dog was worn out from all of the excitement…

We all laid low on ‘Black Friday’, but Saturday night we got together again for a big family dinner and game night.

I haven’t taken any pictures of Lincoln with Nani & Popi since the first week he was home from the hospital!  I had to be sure I got a few during our visit…



Lincoln loved spending time with everyone, but I think Nani might be his favorite…

And finally, I made sure to get some pictures of Lincoln, myself and husband.  I’m using some for our Christmas card, but here are two cute ones.

  1. I couldn’t love these photos more, they are all so great!! Michael’s parents look great 🙂 Can’t wait to see which pics you chose for the Christmas card!

  2. We’re missing all of you but seeing how happy everyone is makes the move all worth it. There’s no doubt that Nani will beALL her grandkids’ favorite. She’s the best! kISSES TO LINCOLN.
