I couldn't resist....

We have a ton of videos of Lincoln doing the little things that make us laugh. We love watching them, I'm sure we will love it even more when he is older. Just thought I would share
one of Lincolns many daily adventures.

Mantel Makeover



We are slowly updating our house, replacing or refinishing all the gold and oak. (which is everywhere) One thing at a time. We finally got around to doing our fire place mantel!

We had already started sanding and I realized I forgot to take a before picture. You can see the dust on the tile.

Piming
After:

We really liked the way it turned out. Will did most the work.
New decorations coming soon.

It's a.....

We had an ultrasound today! I wanted to make some cupcake bites with a pink or blue center to announce the gender of our baby. My appointment was at 12:30 and I worked at 1:30 so I didn't have time to make them before I found out what it was. So I guessed. I had a 50/50 chance and I made the centers pink.
 And the verdict.....
 
It's a Boy!!!!!!!!   
No doubt about it. (sorry baby for exposing you to the world) I'm so excited for Lincoln to have a little brother. My bank account will like it too. Since Linc and this little guy are almost 2 years apart, all of Lincs clothes will fit him in the right seasons. And I wont have to buy the $250 dollar bedding set that I fell in love with. Don't get me wrong, I really wanted a little girl, but I also really wanted a little pal for Lincoln. We are so excited!


Scary alien face picture.
Check out those guns!

 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!

Day 27

A picture of you last year and now and how have you changed since then?
I no longer have blond in my hair.... It's hard to say how you have changed in a year. I guess I'm a little more paranoid about Will. I wouldn't let him take the Christmas lights down by himself. And it's a given that he will no longer work on cars. I get emotional on the drop of a dime, but that could just be a pregnancy thing. I'm a lot less task oriented and just make time for the important things first. Like spending time with my family. Have I mentioned how much I love them?
I'm too lazy to take another picture...maybe later.

Day 24

 A photo of something that means a lot to you.
This picture was taken November 21st 2009.  After almost 6 weeks in the hospital, 3 ambulance rides, one life flight to California, open heart surgery, a kidney infection, hours of tears, weeks of worries, thousands of prayers, and one nerve racking flight from California, we were home. I was exhausted, and so was Lincoln. I laid him down on our couch...he was so still. Will and I stared at him, overwhelmed with relief. What a journey. And now we were all home, together. And nothing else in the world mattered. I took a picture because I wanted... I needed to remember that feeling. 
He still sleeps with this blanket every night. :) I love this little man!
