Yesterday Lincoln and I found ourselves with half an hour between appointments and meetings while out and about. There wasn’t time to run home and it was too cold to play at a park so when I spotted a little bakery we pulled into the parking lot for a mid-morning snack. As we chatted between bites of pasta salad and chocolate chip muffin (about deep things like the fan spinning above us or the olive he was eating), it was fun to realize he is growing into his own person. Looking back, so much of his personality has been evident from almost the beginning but now it is shining through more than ever.
Over the weekend we took some snaps on a slightly colder similar outing (that Ben was invited to, and not just to take the pictures) to watch the the cars and the birds downtown. I packed some of his favorite snacks (we just introduced goldfish and I’m not sure who is more excited to have the little fish in the house, Lincoln or Ben) and essentials in our new J.J. Cole® Aqua Ikat All-Around Diaper Bag. They recently launched their spring line, filled with the same bold patterns we saw last fall at NYFW in shows like Valentino and Max Mara. All of their new diaper bags are as stylish as they are functional, looking to on-trend prints for design inspiration (because when its the one bag you tote around the most, you might as well get one you like!).
P.S. Lincoln clearly has good taste because of all my bags, this is his favorite to try and carry around. He loves the colors and I’ve found him with the strap around his shoulder, pulling it across the entryway. He hasn’t figured out the magnetic closure (which makes for much more quiet opening + closing than zippers) to sneak any snacks yet, but it is just a matter of time.
P.P.S. A cute little video because Lincoln’s kisses, dance moves, and wide eyes as he views the world are things I don’t ever want to forget:
