Where did my baby boy go?
He's gone a little bit more each day . . . each scabby nose from each rambunctious jump/fall off the bed, each adventure digging in the gravel in our backyard, each story we read, each new word he learns. Yesterday was a day of reflection on his going and growing as we celebrated his 2nd Birthday! It could not have been a more wonderful day. Squire and I made it all about Lincoln - which is pretty tough to do these days, what with the new little lady. But, I think he felt the love and the specialness of the anniversary of his entry into our world.

"Red. Bluuuue. Loons. Geen. Lellow. Star." were heard all day long. Yep, buddy. Those are all there. :)
Biscuits and Gravy, juice, and cuties - of course), and while still sportin' his jammies, Lincoln enjoyed getting bugs out of a block of ice I had frozen up in a loaf pan the night before.
His presents were opened periodically throughout the day. This first one was from me - a crayon caddy and notebook, covered in matching fabric.
Remember our funny Tobias books from this post? Well, Lincoln doesn't know it, but after getting Tobias Goes Seal Hunting for Christmas, and now Tobias Has a Birthday for his birthday, he's only one book short of owning the whole Tobias collection.
Dinner was Mexican Chicken - one of Lincoln's faves - as well as fresh pineapple and strawberries. After dinner, we played with water beads. (Thanks again for the cheap toddler entertainment, Dollar Tree!)
The bugs from the ice block were a nice addition as well.
And here he is opening his beautiful set of wooden blocks we got off Etsy.
Linc wanted to hold his little sis for about 7 seconds, and I was lucky enough to catch a photo of the moment.
Lincoln is such an active, observant, talkative, adventurous, and sweet little boy. What did we ever do without him in our lives? I don't really even remember, but I'm sure we weren't as exhausted or fulfilled as we are with him here now. :) We are so happy you're ours! We love you, Lincoln! Happy Birthday, Son!
