Months three and four have flown by!
Lincoln had a big birthday a few weeks ago- three years old!
It’s hard to believe my “baby” is already 3.
I have clearly done a terrible job of sharing any recent photos/stories…
I blame pregnancy 🙂
But, here are some pictures from the last few months.
(And soon, I will have pictures to share of baby #2!)
Lincoln has requested to dress up as a buffalo for Halloween this year
(so random) and somehow I have pulled together a costume.
I promise to share some pictures of our creation next week.
Until then, here’s Lincoln checking out our jack o’lantern. He kept whispering to the pumpkin, “I wish you had a bed to sleep in, pumpkin.” My silly boy…
Oh, hello there! So, the blog was unintentionally on a 3 month hiatus. Nothing big and crazy has been happening here… I guess I just fell out of the habit of posting.
I’ve continued to share pictures and snippets of our life on Instagram. It’s just so easy to snap a quick photo, write a few sentences and post. But, I’ve been wanting to get back to writing here, maybe sharing some recipes and goodies I’ve been cooking up in the kitchen and more on our adventures around Los Angeles.
Over the weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. It was fun being back again. The pumpkin patch was one of our first excursions when we arrived here last fall.
I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I did last time, but here are a few.
(side note: I mentioned last year that there was a paparazzi pen at this pumpkin patch- apparently it’s where all the celebs go. Today, I stumbled upon this article- Only in L.A. Sadly, we did not spot J.Lo, Jessica Alba or any other noteworthy celebrities during our visit- although to be honest, I was too busy chasing around a 2 year old to do much people watching 😉 )
Well, my sweet baby boy is officially two years old.
We had a low key celebration at home on his birthday Monday, with a few presents, cupcakes and balloons.
Tomorrow we are heading to Oregon to celebrate with the rest of our family. Here are just a few pictures from his special day.
Happy Birthday Lincoln!
I know I have been seriously neglecting this blog. I truly do not know how all of those mommy bloggers out there have time to write daily posts… or how they maintain lives that are interesting enough to write about that often 🙂 Lincoln and I are always on the go, but it’s typically to Whole Foods, the post office or the dry cleaner. I don’t think those day-to-day errands warrant any blog entries.
So, while I don’t have any fabulous recent adventures to tell you about, I can share some funny things Lincoln has said recently. He is very verbal these days, and I love hearing all of his thoughts…
– On the airplane back from a recent trip to Bend, OR, the flight attendant asked Lincoln if he would like anything to drink.
He asked for a La Croix. (Apparently, my obsession has rubbed off.)
– Instead of wishing me a happy Mother’s Day on Sunday, Lincoln said, “Happy Easter Day!”
-One day while Lincoln was napping, I was sitting in the room with him, snacking on a bag of cashews. Upon waking up, Lincoln saw the bag and very quietly, but very eagerly whispered, “Nuts… Cashews… Yes!”
-Reciting the words to “Looby Loo” (very similar to the “Hokey Pokey”)… Instead of saying, “I give my hand a shake, shake, shake,” quickly, Lincoln very slowly says, “I give my hand a shake, a shake, a shake…”
-We’ve been doing some counting recently, and Lincoln’s 1-10 usually goes like this, “One, two, three, four, nine, ten!”
-Every time we talk about walking outside or are about to go out, he always reminds me, “Do not step on any bees!”
