Back at the end of April my little Linc-o turned 2! What's crazy is that he has grown up so much in the month since then. His language has grown a bit and it seems like his personality has totally come out since his ear tubes. His facial expressions are so descriptive as always and he is still constantly trying to be like his brother.
His birthday fell on a Saturday, so we spent some time as a family that day and went out to dinner at Pizza Pie Cafe with family. Then followed up with a little family party at home. Simple but fun.
Traditional birthday mornings in our house start with doughnuts and singing Happy Birthday in Portuguese. Parabens pra voce!
We took a trip to the gym while Ben was busy in the morning where he got his own special sticker
Then we headed to Trafalga for a game of mini golf... Linc's first time. He loved it...
...and spent most of his time looking for, picking up and putting the ball in the hole, over and over.
And then he took the fine opportunity to throw his ball in the water while Ben was on his cell phone.
Pizza Pie for dinner - yum! They gave him a mini cookie monster for his birthday (I'm sure my old roommates remember these from Craigos, right? Mmm.)
He was disgusting - I just stripped him down and carried him out white-trash style in his diaper.
Presents at home with the cousins close at hand
Remote control car from Marmie and Gamps
The guys figuring out the Thomas train
And what would a party be without an ipad and a favorite older cousin to play with? (Mercer is pretty much Logan's favorite person in the whole world.)
Lincoln loves trains right now so I made a simple train cake.
Jera and Ben (Dave and Jera had just moved into town the night before!)
We got a big Mr. Potato Head set off ebay for Lincoln and Mercer's creation cracked me up.
Happy Birthday sweet boy!
