He's Two!!

He's gone from this helpless little thing to .... this independent little boy in such a short time.

He has survived two years of being the baby in a family with two older sisters constantly doting on him, dragging him around and dressing him up. He's brought so much joy to our family, and it's hard to imagine how we occupied our time before his arrival. He has the sweetest personality. He is alway concerned about everyone in the family, and gets soooo excited when he sees his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. He's turned into such a big boy, and it's so much fun to watch him learn and grow so much everyday. Currently, he is speaking in short sentences, and likes to repeat a lot. We are able to understand most of what he says most of the time which makes life a little easier. He loves to be read to, and requests Clifford and Goodnight Moon every night before bed. He definitely prefers a bedtime routine more than the girls ever did. He takes a bath, reads, sings, and prays and then will go to bed with out a fight, generally. He still adores his older sisters, and always asks about them when they are at school. He is starting to test the waters a little bit to see what he can get away with. Fortunately for him, he's learning pretty quickly that he won't get away with much around here. I'm a little biased, but I think he's pretty precious, and I am so thankful that I am able to spend more time with him this year. Happy 2nd Birthday, Lincoln! We love you!
