thankful

For our adorable baby boy who more than made up for the last few sicky sleepless nights just now.

Every night after Daddy gives him a bath and reads him some stories, Mama comes in for a nightcap and a snuggle before tucking him into bed. And for the last few weeks, Daddy's departure has been marked with a wave and a "buh-bye" from our big boy who is quickly learning his signs and words and even starting to use them in the appropriate context.

Tonight though, our little monkey told Daddy "night night" instead. Clear as a bell and perfectly timed. This was, of course, followed by a big grin when he saw the look of pride on our faces. He's just such an amazing kiddo! Learning and growing right before our eyes. We're so thankful to have Lincoln in our lives!
