They don’t call them developmental leaps for nothing. I think Lincoln has learned more in the last seven days than he has in his whole life (other than maybe those first seven hours when he had to figure out how to exist in a world outside of me). His speech has changed dramatically (he is speaking his own little language now, all the time), he’s started walking, and he seems to understand so much more of what we say to him. It is all so new, fun, and exciting.
I’m finally filling up the frames of the gallery wall in his nursery (that have been hanging half empty for over six months) and I’m adding in a little reminder from me to the both of us. I’m still working on the final layout, but here’s a little rough draft I whipped up. It has always in many different languages (I used a cloud generator for this one and it separated the words in languages where there are two – so I’ll be fixing that). I have plans to hand-write it and add it to one of the smaller frames so that both Lincoln and I can always be reminded of the things in our life that are forever and always.
A big thanks to Pampers for sponsoring this post and for producing our very favorite diapers (I’ve tried 5 brands at this point and keep coming back to pampers from Walmart). You should also come hang out with me at the twitter party on March 3rd. It’ll be fun 😉 #MothersPromise
