Dear Lincoln,

I’m pretty sure I can start each one of these posts saying “wow, I can’t believe how fast another month went by!” But it’s true, time with you is really flying by! It’s amazing to see how much you’ve grown in such a short amount of time.

This month sure was a busy one! I finished up my last couple weeks of class and your dad started working day shifts again so we got to spend a lot of time together!

Even though you seemed to hate tummy time at first, you actually got the hang of rolling over now! One day we just put you on your tummy and there you went, right onto your back! A couple weeks later you mastered the art of rolling from back to front as well. So now anytime we put you on your back you roll right to your belly. Sometimes you get a little angry and confused as to why you’re on your belly then you just quick roll yourself over again! Thats one great milestone you accomplished this month. I don’t think it will be long until we find you crawling all over the place!

It seems that now you want anything you can get in your mouth. Especially your hands, those are your favorite. I can’t quite tell but I think you might be getting some teeth in there.

We had our first trip to the ER this month because we thought you might have had an ear infection. One day you decided to be extra crabby and continue to tug on your ear so we got worried and brought you up there. Turns out it was nothing, and some of those symptoms are just signs of teething as well! Better safe than sorry though!

You sat so good through my 2 hour graduation! I think the speaker cried more than you did.

Your grandparents from downstate even made it up this month and got to visit with you too! They just moved down to Florida now, so we will go visit them in the spring and you can take your first plane ride, and see the ocean! You sure are lucky!

We got to celebrate your first Christmas this month and it sure was fun. We went to church on Christmas Eve with your grandparents, uncle Mark, aunt Laura, and cousin Ann.

On Christmas morning we got to open all your presents from Santa, just little things for you to play with! But you definitely liked all of them!

This month you got to go to Grandpa’s holiday hockey tournament! You were mesmerized by all the players on the ice. Someday that will be you out there!

We also celebrated New Years a couple days ago and you decided you wanted to stay up until midnight to celebrate with all of us. Either that or we were too loud and kept you up, sorry!

It really was a busy month full of lots of fun stuff. Next month might not be as busy but I’m sure it will bring many good things!
