Dear Lincoln,

It’s crazy to think that you’ve been around post belly as long as you were in my belly! Time is flying by so fast, before I know it we’ll be celebrating your first birthday!

You’ve grown so much this month. You got two new teeth coming in on top, which would make a total of 4 teeth now. And with those teeth you love to eat! We’ve tried all different kinds of foods this month, and you’re a fan of almost all of them, except maybe mango! You’ve even had some macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, pieces of spaghetti, and other foods from your mom and dad’s plates.

You’ve learned a new trick at the end of this month, which is to pull yourself up on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING! Nothing is safe from you now. I know you’ll be walking before we even realize it.

You still army crawl (the fastest I have ever seen) but your dad and I decided that you are probably just going to skip normal crawling because you can get everywhere you need and fast by doing what you’re doing.

This month I got to celebrate my first Mother’s Day because of you. It was a wonderful day and I am so very grateful to be your mother.

We spent lots of time hanging out with family and watching some hockey. Your favorite team (Chicago Blackhawks) are in the Stanley Cup final coming up!

We also went on your first hike this month and you had so much fun! I can’t wait to go on more this summer.

I can’t wait to see what this new month has in store for you. You are growing up so fast! By this time next month we will be in Florida visiting your grandma and grandpa! First airplane trip!
