Because this boy that happened to turn 9 months old today has turned my world upside down! I love him to death, but he is giving me a run for my money. NEWSFLASH....For those of you that didn't know, this baby stuff is hard work. You'd think I'd never had children before, huh? I'm beginning to think maybe I'm too old for this...Anyway, as I said, he's nine months old, and is all over the place. He finally got his first couple of teeth, he squirms like crazy which makes it rather difficult to change his diaper and get him dressed, he loves seeing familiar faces, he has become quite playful and enjoys his toys and playing with his sisters. He has a belly laugh that is sure to make you giggle too, he has become rather fond of eating; his favorite currently is toast, he likes the water, he likes to play in the grass, and everything goes into his mouth. He DOES NOT like to shop, so we'll have to work on that one! He really likes it when he has his parents all to himself after his sisters have gone to bed. Most of the time he beats them to bed, but on the occassion that he stays up later, he soaks up the attention. He is a pretty good sport about being wrangled around by his sisters, one in particular. Overall, he has a pretty calm demeanor, laughs and smiles a lot, and is a lot of fun to be around. Happy 9 months Lincoln! We love you!
