Month TEN!

Lincoln’s biggest accomplishment this past month was learning to take steps! He can take about 4 steps before falling. Watching our third child meet such a big milestone is just as exciting as it was with our first and second child. I am often amazed at how quickly they grow and change.

Lincoln has six teeth now. (We carved his pumpkin with six teeth to match him!)

Lincoln hates diaper changes, getting his hands and face washed after eating, and being told ‘no.’

If you ask him to make his “silly face” he knows what that means and he makes the funniest face!

Lincoln LOVES his daddy! He lights up and crawls to Warren when he walks in the door from work. When Daddy tells him ‘no’ it breaks Lincoln’s heart and he just sobs. He doesn’t do that so much when Mommy says “no.”

Lincoln loves to climb our stairs! He is turning into quite the little climber. He has learned how to climb on top of his lego table and from there onto the end table! Time to move the lego table…

Just today he learned how to say, “uh-oh.” It’s the cutest thing! He will purposely drop something onto the floor and say “uh-Oh” It’s his fun new game. I need to get it on video!

Oh, he’s so precious…

Baby’s First Fall

Lincoln loved playing the leaves! He kept crushing them in his hands. He would pick up a leaf and hold his hand up to show us.

He had fun exploring all the new textures, smells, and even tastes of Fall.

A Visit With Grandpa and Debbie!

Dad and Debbie were in Gatlinburg on the same weekend we were in knoxville. We met up with them on Sunday morning and had breakfast together. It was SO GOOD to see them! I wish we would have had more time, but still it was great to have the chance to see them. Lincoln went to both of them and sat with them happily. He didn’t reach for me or anything. We had such a nice little visit.

Trip to Tennessee

We went to Tennessee for the weekend since Ethan and Isaac had a four-day weekend.

Here is Lincoln helping Grandma in her brand new kitchen!

Lincoln LOVED the trampoline. I thought he might be afraid of the uncertainty of it, but he really loved it.

Ethan and Great-Grandpa playing checkers together.

Ethan, cousin Simon, and Isaac drawing together. Simon is getting so big. He’s not a baby anymore…he liked playing with the boys.

Hangin’ out with Grandpa Falk.

Isaac’s class field trip to the farm

Isaac loved the hay ride. It was a lot of fun! The tractor pulled us through the woods and up steep, muddy hills. The kids all enjoyed it so much!

He was happy with the pumpkin he picked. You can see the pride in his face!

The class all together.

The best part!

Fun at the Pumpkin Patch!

I hope that’s not one of our children climbing all over the pumpkins…

Cutest Little Pumpkin!

Lincoln got to taste the best apple fritters ever! He LOVED them!

The boys were not happy that I made them pose for a picture while their mouth was watering! They loved these witch cookies.

Hay Ride!

Watching the tractor…

Ethan had lots of fun playing with this gourd he found during the hay ride.

Ready for a nap after an exciting afternoon.

It’s a Boy Thing…

The boys have been busy catching Daddy-Long-Legs. They seem to be everywhere outside! This is the first year that Ethan has picked them up. He has always enjoyed hunting for them, but he had Isaac do the dirty work. He is so proud of himself you can see it in his face!
