Lincs is doing a lot better. The cold is gone and we just have a snotty nose now. He is so smart, I love it. He is standing by himself and so proud of being a big boy. One morning, I was still asleep and Lincoln had been sitting next to me watching a movie. Jory came in to check on us and Lincoln was standing up by himself just clapping away. How friggin cute! In one week today he will be 11 months. I can't stand how fast time is flying. This morning he was cuddling and sleeping on my chest. It was so sweet and I loved every moment of it. I was reminded how he used to LOVE that when he was in the NICU. As soon as we pulled him away, he would wake up and cry and the nurses would tell me they had a hard time getting him to calm down after I left. I really miss those days so much. I look at his pics and almost cry that that part of his life is over. I do love all that he does now and it's so exciting when he learns something new and watching how proud he is of himself, but really... I miss that little tiny new baby boy.

We just got home from a trip up to Idaho yesterday. Jory's uncle is dying of cancer and they held a benefit in his honour. I was so touched at the generosity of so many people. They held an auction and someone had donated a lazy boy chair that sold for $1,100!! The guy that won the bid donated it back to the auction again and they resold it for $700 I think. Well, the person that bought it for the second time ended up donating it to Gary's family. This happened several times. I tried to bid on a few things but I think we have about $10 to our name and gas to get up there sure didn't cover that! If only we were in a better place. I did donate a portrait session and a lot of people actually bid on it. It sold for $250!!! I was sooo happy. Down here not a lot of people are willing to even pay at all for photography. I'm glad that I could at least be of service and it's going for a great cause!

I do have some pics on my other computer to post of Lincoln, but I'll do that some other time. Sorry Tammy, feeling a little lazy and hungry right now! Lincs doesn't like when I take his pics anymore. How sad...

PS-I just got done reading one of my dear friends blog post about her baby (who is 10 weeks younger then Lincs) and how she has her bottom teeth and is getting more teeth. Ok, what the crap? Lincoln doesn't even show signs of stubbys on the way!! I mean that's fabulous for nursing and all but really. Still doesn't want to eat much other then mom's milk. I just saw a pic of my (same) friends baby eating Mac & Cheese. WOW... Laura, I can't tell you how jealous I am right now!! Oh and thanks for the reminder to go grocery shopping! LOL!! =D
