Four Months Old!

Lincoln is four months today. What a little sweetheart he is! This month he slept through the night several times, but not consistently. He really got the hang of grasping his toys and reaching for things. He is so entertained by his brothers and lights up when they are around. They can make him laugh like nobody else. He giggles at them so often and then he always gets the hiccups.
Lincoln’s favorite discovery this month was learning that he could growl. He does it very often. I got good video of it and will try to post a clip so you can hear how funny it is. He sounds like a little tiger.
He is starting to roll from his back to belly. Sometimes at night he will wake up on his back and get frustrated that he can’t get back to his belly. I have had to roll him over several times so he can sleep again. He was like a turtle stuck on his back. Too cute!
He is getting so big and changing so fast. He looks so much like Ethan!

(His nose is slightly red in this picture because we had just come in from being outside and it was a little chilly out there)

First Dentist Visit!

Isaac had a big smile and was ready to go. He actually seemed to enjoy the whole experience. He was very happy and cute. The dental hygienist found him to be quite charming. He chose an orange flavored fluoride treatment because after all, that’s his favorite color. No cavities!

Ethan’s turn in the blue chair!

Ethan also did a fantastic job. They wore these sunglasses to keep the bright lights out of their eyes and to protect their eyes from splashes of water. The boys thought they were cool and loved wearing them. Ethan picked out a bubble gum flavored fluoride treatment. He has 23 teeth, one of his 6 year molars hasn’t come in yet. He has to go back next week and get two cavities filled.

Shiny teeth and a dollar bill!

I gave the boys each a dollar for doing such an awesome job at the dentist. I love how excited they get over something so small. It doesn’t take much to make a child happy. Too bad they out grow that so soon.

An early morning cuddle

Ethan and Isaac love to come into our room when they wake up to see if Lincoln is awake. Usually he is still sleeping, but today he was awake so Ethan cuddled in my bed with him while I got ready for the day.

It’s neat to see just the two of them together because Lincoln looks so much like Ethan.

(...)

Isaac ran into the mailbox and that is why he has a band-aid on his elbow. He was reminded of his “owie” tonight in the bath tub and was pretty upset about it all over again.

Ethan speeding through the grass

Ethan has been doing a good job with his bike. He only ran into two parked cars that we know of! I even got one on video. He also ran into a fence. But, by next week I hope he will be much better.

Too tough for training wheels!

Ethan AND Isaac both learned how to ride their bike with no training wheels this weekend! They are so proud of themselves and we are very proud of them! They have showed all the neighbors over and over again. Isaac asked me if I was, really, really, REALLY, proud of him.He also asked me if I was the proudest mommy ever. I am!
It was neat to watch Isaac’s sheer determination. He just tried over and over again for a couple of hours last night. He didn’t get frustrated much at all. He proved to be very patient, in fact. He didn’t really like to be helped either.

Ethan learned first on Isaac’s bike. He would get frustrated pretty easily and throw the bike down or pout and walk away. We learned it was best to ignore him rather than try to help him. He finally got it and once he did he took right off. He is doing great. Warren took Ethan out for ice cream on the day he learned. What a treat that was! Alone time with just daddy eating ice cream. Warren told Isaac that when he learned he would get to have special time with Daddy, too. We didn’t think it would be just a couple of days later, though! Today Isaac and Daddy got ice cream together.

They are growing up…

A couple of Cuties

Or a cute couple…

Lincoln and Josie are just two months apart. It will be fun to watch them grow up together.
