Photo shoot

Lincoln is kind of a screamy baby...

But once in a while I'll get a few minutes in the day time where he's pretty happy.

On this particular day we did a little photo shoot.

I tried to pare down the number of pictures I put on this blog post, but he makes so many faces I just couldn't cut out any more.




The kid seriously loves licking things.




He loves this giraffe. :) 







His other favorite toy.




Aaaand this was the last of the smiley-ness he had in him. And scene.

Not a newborn anymore!

We don't have a newborn anymore!

We have a little boy on our hands!

Oh, and when I guessed like 13 pounds last post? I was wrong. He's 15. :)











Funny kid... lol. 

One day I was changing his diaper and I turned away to grab stuff. I looked back and he had his giraffe sitting on his head like this. He left it there the whole time. 

He sure loves his daddy.




In other news, we're both feeling the pressure that is trying to each finish a thesis in the next few months. It's pretty stressful at times, I'll be honest... but we'll survive. :) I find myself saying "We'll finish if it's the last thing we do, and it just might be." Lol.

But, Bryan said we're going to take a vacation when we finish (we have to defend by the end of June). I was like, "can we do that?'... a vacation is such a foreign thing since we haven't taken much of a break since the dawn of time. He said, "that's what people that graduate from grad school get to do!" So, a vacation it is. In all reality we'll probably just fly out to the place we'll be moving and find a place to live, but hey, that sounds like a lovely break to me!

3 Months Old!

Lincoln is 3 months old today!

We're not sure how much he weighs or how long he is-- my guess is close to 13 lbs and almost 25 inches long.

He has grown out of all his 0-3 month clothes and he wears 3-6 month clothes now. With his cloth diapers he's in 6 month pants quite comfortably. He's long enough that he can only fit in 6 month pajamas... crazy kid.

Lincoln loves:
-baths
-being upright
-watching football or basketball on tv
-screens (phones, computers, tv...)
-music
-having conversations with mom and dad
-books
-being outside
-staying awake during nap time
-being extra cute right at bedtime
-his daddy
-being sung to and trying to sing along
-flirting
-smiling
-laughing
-being loud
-screaming
-looking at himself in the mirror


Lincoln hates:
-TUMMY TIME- it's his #1 hate in life
-when food comes too slowly
-to take naps
-being put in the car seat
-binkies


We had a crazy busy Christmas break, end-of-year, and start-of-year. Here are some pictures!





Lincoln was baby Jesus in the Sudweeks family nativity this year. He was a smiley Jesus and distracted Mary and all the little wise men and shepherds. :)

He screams lots... and when he does he pretty much instantly turns purple.

Lincoln was so excited to meet his friends Benji and Milo! We miss them and want to visit them in Arizona someday. 

He's already captivated by screens... hm...

We sure love Lincoln. :) We're pretty sure he's the best. ;)
