7 Months!

As you can see in the picture above Lincoln got his first set of pearly whites this month! He actually just got his third tooth the other day and is working on the second top center tooth.

This was a busy month for Lincoln. He went to New York for the first time. He got to meet his Great-Grandma and other family members. He was such a good baby in the car during the long drive.

Lincoln also went to his first Anderson reunion in Tennessee this month. He didn’t seem to mind having lots (and I mean lots) of new people holding him.

He has mastered the army crawl. He can get around so fast that we wonder if he will ever crawl on his hands and knees! He goes from room to room and explores the world around him.

Lincoln is not a fan of baby food. I guess I can’t blame him. He loves to eat what we eat. I think he likes the texture of real food and I’m sure it tastes better to him.

He’s been sucking his thumb a lot when it’s bedtime. In fact, lately when I am holding him and walk into his room for something he puts his thumb in his mouth and lays on my shoulder thinking it’s time for bed. He definitely knows his room is for sleeping. It’s the sweetest thing.

This month he started an “I love Mommy” phase. I love it! I do feel bad for Warren, a little, because Lincoln clearly wants me over him.

He loves his music! I play an old tape of kids songs once in a while for him and we dance together. Now when I walk by the TV holding him he gets excited and looks up at the speakers and “talks” loudly.

He started standing while holding onto something. He has not pulled himself up yet, but loves to stand wherever we put him.

Lincoln is such a fun baby and we all love him so much! He is starting to learn so much and become his own little person.

He does not like to wear a hat! Too bad because it looks so cute on him.

So Big!

Lincoln has expressed interest in the dishwasher for a couple of weeks now. He gets excited when I open it and comes scooting on over. He can’t quite pull himself up yet, but he loves when we stand him near something he can hold onto. You can see it in his eyes that he thinks he’s so big!

Bigger Carseats

We moved Isaac into a bigger car seat because Lincoln needed the one he was using. It was perfect timing because Isaac is finally big enough for this one. I can’t believe Lincoln is ready to be out of the infant seat. He’s getting so big!

Painting

Ethan and Isaac had a lot of fun painting their new treasure boxes. It was cute listening to all the different things they wanted to put into their boxes. In the end they both decided it would make a great jail for bad guys. …Boys!

Lincoln seemed to enjoy himself too! I still don’t know how he managed to get so much paint on him. I thought I did a good job of keeping him out of it.

2008 Anderson Family Reunion

I’m finally getting a chance to post my reunion pictures from last week! The reunion was held in Pigeon Forge, TN for the 5th consecutive year. Here is the huge family…actually it’s even larger, there were several people missing this year. There are 76 in all…so far!

The Charles Falk Family: The Falk family keeps growing at a fast pace! This year alone there were 6 new additions. (all boys!) We have just as many children as adults. I wonder how many members we’ll have 5 years from now?!

The Warren Falk Family: Here is our little family of five.

Baby Shower

Each year we have a baby shower for all the new additions. This year the Anderson family welcomed 7 new little ones. Max, Misha, vitali, (Melissa and Steve adopted these three from Ukraine earlier this year. They are so much fun!) Lincoln, Alex, Jude, and Anderson.

Thank you to all who gave us gifts for little Lincoln! We really appreciate it.

Here are some of the kiddos all lined up for cake after the baby shower. It was sooo yummy!

Fun at Wonderworks

The picnic at the park was canceled due to rainy weather. So, Aunt Liz took a bunch of people to Wonderworks. It was very crowded there, but there were so many interesting things to look at!
