Terms of endearment for gingersnap #2:
Buddy. Buster. Guster. Binx. Tubby/Tubs. Linc.
& very rarely, Lincoln.
Whatever we call him, he's a love.
He's a heart-melting, monkey-climbing, kiss-giving, little love.
Does he still keep us up all night?
I haven't slept more than 5 consecutive hours in a year.
(except the 1 night I was away)
Does he throw more tantrums in a day than his sister has ever thrown in 3 years?
A day? Try an hour.
Does he purposefully get our attention before he knocks over the laptop or touches the outlet or shakes the lamp?
Does he throw his head back and smack my face on a daily basis?
Did he poop on Zac Effron's face yesterday?
He most certainly did.
But even still, this little cherub has had me wrapped around his finger since Day 1.
We love you Buddy!
You are so funny. I often find you laughing & talking to yourself.
Your favorite song is, appropriately, Happy Birthday To You & whenever we say,
"Linc, sing us a song," you sing Happy Birthday. It sounds like, "Ahhh Beeee....." but we know what you're trying to say :)
You love peek-a-boo & patty cake & can't wait to "toss it in the oven."
You love your daddy. You choose him over me all the time.
In your own special language, you say:
dada, mama, avy, baby, austy, hi, bye-bye, thank you, uh-oh, up/down, all done, & that.
You've been taking about 5 steps now for the past week! You're so close to cruisin!
You love to climb. You are always looking for new gear to use as your base to hoist you up to a higher level.
You're favorite person is Avycakes.
You loved her from the start & you patiently put up with a lot of her shenanigans.
(i usually don't apologize for gnarly pics of myself, however, please forgive this one. this was the day before giving birth. & not to mention we had just hiked, so cut a large, tired girl some slack.)
You have a sweet, super kissable face.
You are so much fun & make life at the Atwood ranch very, very happy.
Happy 1st Birthday!!!
