Garden Harvest

We harvested some brussel sprouts for our christmas dinner!  I can't wait to have them.  Lincoln already ate one straight from the garden.

Christmas Morning.

On Christmas morning Lincoln had a blast playing with all the toys that SANTA brought.  After sitting on Santa's lap the other day, he has been very excited about his stocking.
Check out this awesome video!

It's Christmas Morning!

Happy Birthday

What a fun birthday.  We brought out his presents (he got 3) and he was able to enjoy each one and move on to the next one at his pace.  He sat for about 20 minutes with one before moving on to explore the next one.  It was great to watch him examine each new toy.  He had a cupcake after dinner and seemed to enjoy it.  I think....

Good times!

walking (as requested)

Here are two fun videos.
Walking here, walking there.  It is one of his favorite things to do.  Of course he has his little bear with him.

and this one too

Do you have a question?

We took a trip to the Air Armament Museum today.  Lincoln loves airplanes.  You may wonder how we know.  He has come up with his own sign language for airplane.  Every time he sees one, hears one, or even thinks about one, his arm shoots straight up as if he has a question.  While it is not the official ASL sign for airplane, we are going to go with it because it is so cute, and he does it every time!  You can imagine that at the museum, that he had his had up the entire time.  Check out the pictures!

15 Seconds of Fame?

Well, it does repeat every few minutes!  We could not resist having Lincoln's First Birthday up in lights on the community marquee.  We had to get a picture, of course.

HighChair Fumble

Sometimes when you drop things from the highchair you don't get them back.
Nilla loves to sit by the highchair, she makes a good vacuum.

Picture post

After a grueling travel day, which extended into two days, with an overnight drive from Atlanta home, we have made it and are glad to be back.  We had a ton of fun, and love San Francisco.

The first two days were cold and wet, but after that we could not have asked for better weather.  The skies were blue, and the temps were mild.
We took a sail boat around alcatraz, and near the golden gate bridge.  Lincoln had a blast, and slept most of the time.  As for the sea lions at Pier 39, he was mesmorized, I could not get him to look up for the camera.  He was locked on those crazy animals!

He loves playing at the park, no matter what sort of equipment is there.  These crazy heads made for fascinating play objects.

The Golden Gate bridge was great, we walked out to the first post, and had a great view of the city.  It was brisk, but we made it around a walking trail so we had a view of the pacific ocean too.

This is the last street car that we took, back to the hotel so that we could pack up our stuff and head home.

Yerba park was fun, until someone got sleepy. Walking a mile with sleeping baby is harder than you might think. At least I had the baby carrier.
