Another First....and Last

Lincoln got a taste of his first real food....Earth's Best rice cereal. It was a family affair with each of us "fighting" over giving him bites.
I'm sooooo completely kidding. Ok, maybe not.

I couldn't stop thinking as we were feeding him, this is the last time we get to do this "first."
Which is why I fought extra hard for my turn!

(what I wouldn't do for a view from the other side of this camera....we are all gathered around within inches of the poor kid. Its a wonder we didn't frighten him into the ugly cry.)

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Throwback Friday

I ran across this video of my Mother's Day breakfast-in-bed from this past May.
Does anyone see Lincoln? ;)

Two in Blue

Ahhhh. Isn't this sweet?

Almost as charming as Gabe when he smeared an entire tube of hair gel into the carpet yesterday, showed me, and then proudly exclaimed, "I keen duh carpet!"

Even more fetching was last week after he downed an entire mug of my coffee (again) and then buzzed (literally!) around here for hours singing, "You are AWESOME, Mommy!"

But nothing was as charming as when he decided to experiment with loading TP into the toilet (stuffed tighter than a Thanksgiving turkey) and flush it just prior to my morning of errands with GLLAM in tow. Sharing the whole saga is one of those If Only I Had Time stories and would reduce me to tears, but suffice it to say that I arrived home just in time to spend the afternoon mopping up water and rounding up dehumidiers and fans from all my gracious neighbors.

And to think I have the blessing of chasing two in blue in another year or so.....

Ahhhh. Isn't this sweet?

My baby is looking all grown up. :(
I snapped this of her last night as we left for her choir concert.

The choir surprised us with an audience-participation Deck the Halls as their encore.
