A couple of weeks late but better late than never!
Since one year has passed I’m going to forgo the monthly pictures since getting Lincoln to sit still has become next to impossible. Sometimes he is doing the cutest thing and in the time it takes for me to pull out my phone, pull up the camera and hold it up, the moment has long passed. I still try to capture these little moments but when I look through my camera roll they are not quite a perfectly posed as they used to be.
This little man is on the move! He has become quite the little walker and his latest trick is to stand up without having to pull up on a chair, table, etc. He uses his hands to prop himself up and it’s super cute. His balance and speed has really improved and I still find it to be the cutest little thing to watch him toddle all over the house. We’ve been letting him walk around more often outside of the house, though I still carry him most places since he still falls down often and I don’t want him wandering off. He has the cutest little pair of Nike’s that he wears when we go out now.
Lincoln has been a bottomless pit lately and is constantly begging for food. He figured the cabinet we keep all his goodies in and if I open it with him in the room he immediately starts whining for a snack. Some favorites are cheese, teddy grahams, cheerios and of course pouches. We have a snack cup that I will fill and he carries it around like his prized possession. He even recognizes the plastic containers we pack his lunch in. I can call him to his high chair and he will run over eagerly. If there is not food down in .05 seconds then he starts immediately protesting. We’ve been making Christmas cookies like crazy and we definitely have a little cookie monster. He goes berserk to get a taste. He’s still a great eater and eats pretty much anything with meat topping the list of favorites.
The Christmas tree was a big source of entertainment for him. He loved to pick off the felt ornaments and carry them around the house. He put one on his head like a hat the other night and it stayed up there. It was pretty funny that he seemed to not notice he was wearing a little red heart around. These days anything can be a hat and loves putting towels or washcloths on his head. He also loves to pull out my hat and attempt to wear it though he hasn’t quite figured out how to put it on his head the right way and when I do it for him he rips it right back off 🙂
On a not so fun note we are in the midst of the temper tantrum. His isn’t moody that often but he can be a bit of a beast when he is in bad mood. He throws his little body on the floor and rolls around. The other night Mike gave him one taste of jam and he wanted more so he threw a mini fit with real tears and everything. Most of the time I want to laugh because it’s pretty funny but I try to keep my cool so I don’t encourage his silly behavior. He is generally a sweet little boy though and loves to give little cuddles all the time that always melt our heart.
