I cannot believe how fast these past ten months have gone! Â Lincoln is growing so fast and I am so incredibly proud of him! He has been cruising and taking a few steps for weeks now, but this weekend (before he turned 10 months, so we’re calling it at 9 months) he started truly walking. Â (You can see footage here.) Â He mostly walks with his arms in the air – for balance – but is starting to lower them. Â He is eating all sorts of foods and definitely has favorites! Â He doesn’t like chicken very much, but he LOVES mangoes. Â He is a great grocery shopper too! Â Loves to chew on the cart and turn around so that he can see where we are going. Â Don’t worry, I always wash the cart first – and you try getting him to stop! Â He is starting to say a couple of things here and there. Â He says “mom” a lot, and sometimes says “ba” for ball. Â We swear he’s said “hi dad” like 5 times. Â Also, he has starting to sign “more” which is so exciting!
I was the matron of honor in my cousin Christina’s wedding this past weekend, so we were very busy. Â Link spent the whole day with his daddy and they did great! Â I am so happy they like to spend time with each other! Â It was a wonderful celebration, and I had so much fun dancing all night!
I finished classes for the semester last week (earned two A’s!) so I am looking forward to my Wednesday nights free again. Â Summer class starts in June, so Saturdays will be shot. Â As will Thursdays because I am starting an internship. Â I shouldn’t say those days are “shot” – I very much like my classes and I am thrilled for my internship! Â I will be working in the preservation department at the Hennepin County Library downtown Minneapolis. Â Hopefully this will give me a look at the career I want to head towards. Â I will be focusing on sheet music and encapsulations, which will give me the experience to bring to a couple of other places that I can volunteer. Â If all goes according to plan, I will be graduating in December.
Also on the horizon is SUMMER! Â I am so excited to spend more time outdoors with Link! Â I can’t wait until we can take him swimming! Â It is truly amazing how exciting every moment is with Link. Â He brightens so many people’s days and I’m so proud to be his mommy. Â I get to start planning his first birthday here soon!
