Happy Birthday, Lincoln!

The day has finally arrived! The baby of our family turns one year old today - I can hardly believe it!

Can you tell what the theme of his birthday party is going to be? :) 

Lincoln Theodore Robert is such a beautiful child, and he might just grow up with some sort of complex because we tell him so EVERY single day...DOZENS of times per day. :) No one can get over his cuteness! And he's so happy and good. Well, he's just the perfect little caboose on our crazy train.

Lincoln is a big boy these days with a mouth full of teeth and a hungry appetite. He isn't walking just yet, but he is getting close. He can pull up on and get into just about anything he wants. And that includes his favorite game, taught to him by big sister Charlotte - scouring the house for a toilet to splash in or throw things into!


Linc is, admittedly, a total mama's boy. That is not a problem. :) Haha, he's my little buddy! Nothing warms my heart like the smile I get from this baby. It spreads from his cute little lips to his dimples and his squinty eyes until his whole face is just one big ball of light and I can't help but scoop him up and give him a squeeze!

Unfortunately, being a mama's boy also means it's nearly impossible to get a good picture of this kid...if I'm down on his level, he wants to be in my lap. (And possibly eating my face.)



Hahaha....

His favorite things include: going outside, dumping all of his food on the floor, digging in the pantry, hitting things and making loud noises, so uh yeah...he's pretty much a typical boy! Lincoln grunts a lot, which makes his big sisters crack up. :) 

Lincoln is the best cuddle buddy. He has befriended the nicest man at church who claims Lincoln in the nursery every Sunday. Every morning when I come to pick him up, he's sound asleep on this little old man's chest in a rocking chair, haha. "He's the sweetest baby." I know...I know. Could eat him with a spoon. I kindly request each day that Lincoln please not grow up. And yet, here we are. A whole year old!


I hear a lot of different opinions about who Lincoln looks like...which is pretty much the same with all of our kiddos. They all look so different, I think! But this one...in my opinion...is handsome like dad! I think he's a little Eric. :) 


Evelyn's favorite memory of Lincoln from the last year was visiting him the hospital after he was born. Reagan's favorite memory was watching Lincoln learn how to stand up. Gracie's favorite memory was celebrating Lincoln's first Christmas this year. It took Charlotte a little while to warm up to her baby brother, but now I can't go a single day without her smothering him in kisses and asking where the baby is 20 times when he takes a nap. :) 

In a couple of weeks we'll blast off and celebrate this cutie! It's a crazy weekend around here getting ready to go back to school, so we're letting things settle down a little bit before tackling a first birthday party. But I can't wait to party in outer space with our little Lincoln! 

Happy first birthday, little buddy! We love you!

Hope you all have a great day!
