I’m three!

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!)

We also went to a Dodgers game and had amazing seats in a box... I loved how Lincoln just dove right in and helped himself to some snacks :)

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.

7th birthday weekend

It was a great weekend in Bend.  I cannot believe our little nephew is seven years old!  Yikes!  I am totally terrified that I am going to blink my eyes and little Lincoln is going to be seven years old.  Ugh.

For now, I’ll just try to slow down and enjoy each moment… especially the wonderful moments when our whole family is together…

And sadly, the weekend was over quickly.  I was very proud of Lincoln… six hours in the car each way and he did a great job…
