Baby Lincoln

Lincoln at 10 Months

I remember when I first started a blog, I wanted to do it as a sort of online diary for Lincoln. So, one day when he’s older he can see how his mom documented the pregnancy, and the first year month by month. And, let’s be honest here, I epically failed at that. During the pregnancy, going through sixteen weeks of sickness made me put my blog completely on the back burner. Once having Lincoln, taking the roller coaster of postpartum depression, having a newborn, and then heading back to work caused the same thing to happen – my blog just wasn’t a priority. But now that it’s summer, that I’ve become a SAHM, my blog is a huge priority in my life once again! And I am thrilled about that.

With all that being said, let’s dive into what Lincoln was like at 10 months.

I think I remember saying somewhere around him turning six months that it was my favorite age. Well, it just keeps getting better. Lincoln is crawling FAST all over the place, he cruises on furniture, and plays so well independently. His favorite toys are balls and he throws them all over the house and chases after them.

He is eating like a grown man already – his favorites include chicken nuggets, yogurt, cheese (he IS MY child), raspberries, strawberries and banana. We offer him tons of other options, basically everything we eat. He had his first introduction with a donut and dives face first into my soft serve when we go out to get it.

Lincoln says “uh oh” “mama” “dada” and I keep trying to teach him to be gentle so he will mimic the word gentle, and I can tell he’s trying to say it, but he really only gets the final sound.

Next Saturday, Lincoln will be 11 months old and I CANNOT believe it. Where did my baby go? Time really does fly. Darius is already considering asking Lincoln to start paying rent soon. Kids these days, solely reliable on their parents.

Lincoln at 9 Months

Lincoln recently (and by recently I mean basically a month ago) turned 9 months! 9 months ago my life changed in an insane way – I became a mommy! The ride has been a long, wild one but my goodness, I wouldn’t change a thing. Seeing Lincoln grow and transform from a newborn to a little baby boy has been incredible.

In turning 9 months, Lincoln started to do the following:

-crawl – like reallyyyyy crawl and reallyyyyy fast – the second he sees the gate open to the kitchen he bolts for it.

-eat people food – he’s finally shown a huge interest in the food we are eating and loves to chow down

-finding his voice – between screaming, shouting, hollering – it’s getting loud around here

-pulling up on furniture – Lincoln went from crawling to pulling up in a matter of days. he is cruising all over and I can’t remember the time when he was immobile.

-big boy bath – he has been evicted from the infant bath and now sits up in the tub like a regular kid *excuse me while I go sob*

-trying to talk – like REALLY trying to talk. he is always making a noise of some sort.

-curiosity – this one has to be one of my favorites. to see his little self explore, pick things up, throw things, chase things, eat things, taste things – it’s just so cute!
