To Lincoln

My Dear Lincoln - yesterday I watched in amazement as you picked up my iPhone, slid the arrow to unlock it, found your games app and chose to play Curious George Zoo game.
I know that people have told me that you would do this very soon and I was sort of expecting this, but it was still amazing to watch you. You completed each touch with precision -- like you knew exactly what you were doing.

Then, later that evening your dad wanted to use the house phone. Yes, we still have a house phone bc we dont want to have to give everyone our cell numbers :) So, he asked you to go and get the phone. We wondered if you knew what we really asked you to do.  You toddled off into the kitchen and within a matter of seconds you returned holding the house phone and handed it to your dad to call Aunt Melody.

Every day you amaze us at how smart you are and what a great child you are.
We love you!
Mom & Dad

Bounce houses are fun!

Sunday afternoon we went over to Sweetwater for a 4 year old birthday party for a little girl Lincoln goes to daycare with. It was a princess party of course. They had a castle bounce house and a princess cake and pink and red punch. It was really fun. Lincoln loved Loved LOVED the bounce house! He even was brave enough to climb the ladder an go down the slide! I was so proud of him!
Then, we sang and has princess cake and a red mustache from the punch.
Presents- there were lots of tinker bell stuff, hair things and pretty sparkly things- just what a little girl wants!
But then, here big brother comes walking down the street with something every little girl wants-- a pony. A real life pony!! We were all surprised and couldn't wait to see the reaction on the little girl's face! Her momma didn't even know about it so it was fun to see her face too! :)
Here are some pics with my phone that I took. The party was fun!
