Lincoln at 5 Months

Lincoln turned 5 Months last week and I am behind behind behind on blogging....well pretty much everything.  So here is an update for all those out of towners and long-distance friends to see what our little guy is up to.

At 5 Months Old Lincoln:
- You weigh approximately 15 lbs (3 lbs less than your hefty big bro at this point!)
- Mastered rolling over both ways within a week of each other and then really just don't ever do it anymore :)
- Sleep on your belly now
- Wearing 6 month clothes and wearing 6-9month in pajamas that are full length footies
- Love your teething toys, mom's knuckle, bib, burpcloth (ok anything you can insert in mouth)
-Wear size 2 Diapers
-LOVE smiling and flirting now ALL the time.
-Very serious about your schedule...you pretty much seem to tell time and don't let me know forget about what needs to happen next!
-Nursing/Bottle Feeding now with about 1 bottle of it being formula
-Still not eating any "food" yet...we're holding off.
-Working hard at sitting up.  Sat up last night (with your hands in front of you) for 30 seconds.  You HATE being laid down now
-Are very ticklish

We love you bunches and will continue to try to keep you safe from your wild & crazy brother!!  He really does love you....he just forgets how teeny you are sometimes! And sorry about him barging in your room in the morning this week to wake you up early..we are working on that ;)

-You weigh...umm...I have no clue! :) Haven't had time to weigh you.

Lincoln at 8 weeks

At 8 weeks Lincoln you are so well adjusted into our family. You make it very easy. Just look at that cute face :

Your brother likes to teach you things already. He shows you shapes he knows while he works on flash cards with mommy.

You are putting on the pounds now. You weighed in at 10lbs 15oz today! And you have some cute rolls. Evidence below:

We all love watching you grow and change everyday. Just don't grow up too fast please! But you did sleep 8.5 hours straight last night...you can keep doing that!


Lincoln at 7 Weeks

Ok...sound the alarms..You now have ROLLS!  On Sunday you had MAYBE one roll on your thighs...now you have 2 and working on a 3rd!  Yes, skinny little you have rolls on your thighs and arms and some chubby cheeks!  Here are some pictures of you at 7 weeks to share with all those rooting you on!

Jackson's Idea of Working

Went to get Jackson up the other day and this is what I saw:

In the most serious voice he turned around and told me "Mommy! I'm workin'." Then he pretended to type on his pretend keyboard (aka blanket). Oh and the lovie HAD to be on his head.  I took some pics because I just wanted to remember this super silly moment.  

Love my silly little guy...these moments fill our days. He always has funny stuff to say and keeps me laughing even when I'm overwhelmed and feel like crying!

Lincoln at 6 weeks

We are growing growing growing out of our clothes at the Davis house...ok well Jackson and Lincoln anyway! 

Mr. L has now made his way into 0-3 month clothes, mostly because of length! He was busting out of the NB clothes in length.   Below are pics of L at 6 weeks and trying out his crib for the first time. 

Daddy left this week for work for 6 days, 5 NIGHTS! Lincoln got diagnosed with reflux and we are going to start the meds today. (Fingers crossed!)  He is breastfeeding like a champ and is now over 10 lbs. If he's not in pain because of the reflux he is a REALLY happy baby.

This week he also SMILED for the first time. First at Jackson, then at Miss Christy, then Mommy :) He loves watching his big brother and loves to coo at him too.

Happy Belated Mardi Gras

Jackson had a big Mardi Gras celebration at school. They made masks, got beads (no flashing required-HA!) and made cupcake King Cakes :)  

He got to have his treat when he came home from school and try out his mask too!

Lincoln at 5 Weeks (late post)

Growing fast! You are still in NB clothes but you'll be out of them soon! Here are some pictures from your week.
