HE IS ONE.....

I can't believe seams like just yesterday I was in the hospital with him and P was pushing around the soiled clothes cart...I know....I should not have let him do that but oh well. So about Lincoln....

When I found out I was pregnant with him the nurse in my doctors office told me. We were not shocked since we were not doing anything to protect against having another ankle biter. It was kind of funny that someone else told me we were pregnant because I told Daniel we were expecting M and D told me we were expecting P. The nurse Regina, was so excited. First and foremost I was worried about postpartum depression. I had that with P and was worried about it again since the boys would be only 17 months apart in age. Thank God none of that happened.

I wanted to make a big deal about telling D about the upcoming birth of our 3 little guy since I didn't get to with the other 2. SO I went to the mall and bought a yellow shirt for M and a red shirt for P. On the back of M's I has screen printed " I want a SISTER!" and on the back of P's I had "I want a BROTHER!" That night I told D I had a surprise for him the next day. The following day I dressed the kids in their shirts and thought it would some how drop hints to D. I tried to put them together in front of him so he would see their backs. Well, P was 8 months old and when nap time came I knew he would NEVER get I started to ask him if he had figured it out. He said NO. I remember we were laying on our bed with M playing around and he asked if it was in this room. I told him YES. More and more hints were given and finally I said "Didn't you read the kids shirts?" He said Yeah and thought nothing else of it. So I turned M around and he asked me where my mom had gotten her shirt. I told him that P had one that said "I want a BROTHER!"

Finally after all of that his light bulb started to flicker.

9 months later we had LJF. He was born the day after we had new carpet installed in our whole house. January 9, 2007 @ 11:29am. He weighed 10lbs. 4oz. and was 20 inches long.

He has been such a blessing to our family. We love him so much and couldn't imagine our lives without him!

We love you Little Man!
