First Taste

video

This is Lincoln's first taste of applesauce the video it a little long, but is worth it for the faces that he pulls. Oh yeah, do not mind the bad manicure it was done by a 4 year old.

First
















This is Lincoln's first taste of baby food (rice cereal). I do not think that he is buying the whole eating thing just yet.

Be Careful


Daddy's favorite thing to do with Lincoln and Lincoln's favorite thing to do with daddy.

Ben puts Lincoln's feet in his hand and balances him up in the air. It is really amazing! Lincoln will stand so still while Ben lifts him in the air, is swear it is the only time that I can get him to stay in one place. Amazingly Lincoln never falls, his legs never bend, and his body stays straight as a board.

My Little Artist


This is another of Boston's Christmas gifts (from Santa). She loves to paint and draw so we decided to get her a easel for Christmas. It has not been that much of a mess so far (moon sand takes the cake on that one) just a few paint splatters here and there, but we were smart and got the washable paint. See we are learning!

Poor Dog!

Our poor dog Daisey! She has to be the most tortured dog (next to our other dog Rosco) in the world. Anytime Boston gets the chance to dress her up she will seize the moment. For her couture line in this picture she dressed Daisey in a wizard cape and a pink skirt, she tried putting leggings on her but they just would not fit, imagine that! All I can say is that I am glad that we do not have a little dog that would actually fit into her clothes.

Christmas Fun




For Christmas Boston got a new snow suit (thanks mom) and a new sled (thanks Uncle Jon) and the second she realized that she could go in the snow without getting wet she just had to try them out. Since we do not have a hill to sled down Ben would push her down our icy driveway, just stopping short of the road, and then pull her back up with the rope he attached to the sled. I know how white trash, but to each their own right? Never-the-less she had fun and did not get hit by a car, which was a bonus :)
