We had Lincoln's first 1st birthday party this past weekend at my parents house in Rhode Island. His second party is this coming weekend.
Overall, I think the party was a huge success. We had a great time with family and friends, and Lincoln managed to stay happy despite only having a 40 minute morning nap!
Here are some of the decorations...

...thought you'd all enjoy a sneak peak of Lincoln's birthday shirt. It got it in the mail yesterday :) Seriously, how stinkin' cute is that?! I cannot believe his first party is tomorrow. Where has this past year gone??????

...you know one of those super awesome DSLR camera's that take phenomenal photos. No, I do not know how to use these types of cameras in any way, shape or form...but I'll try. I want to learn how to take crisp photos of my sweet boy. My question to you is...which camera do I get? and what about lenses? I know those are important too...but what do I need. I'm sure there are some photo experts out there who read my blog, so I'd love to hear from you. What do you use? I'd like something relatively easy to use, but also something that will take good quality photos.
So, if you could help me out please, I'd be forever grateful :)

These next two weeks are INSANELY busy for us. I will be spending the majority of this week at my parents house preparing for Lincoln's 1st birthday party there on Saturday.
Then next Tuesday, my sweet boy turns one! :::cue the tears:::
Wednesday is his one year pediatrician appointment.
Thursday is Thanksgiving.
Friday is not only "Black Friday," but we're also having Lincoln's one year photos taken!
Saturday is his 1st birthday party here in Connecticut!
Holy smokes are we busy!
This past weekend I finished up some preparations for his parties...what a lucky boy having TWO 1st Birthday parties :) I made a slideshow of his first year to display on a digital picture frame...sooooo stinkin' cute!!! It's amazing to watch him grow up throughout this past year.
So, with all this craziness...I might not be around blogging too much. But, I will try to keep you all updated as much as I can :)
Here is one of Lincoln's latest pics... :)

This year I'm thinking I'll include one family picture of the three of us, and the rest will be featuring our sweet little boy Lincoln! I send our cards to everyone in our families. I think it's a great way to keep in touch...and with that adorable photo featured on your card, I think it's even more personal :)
I have searched and searched their site. So far, here are two of my front runners for this years card...

Lincoln has changed and grown so much this past year, yet one thing seems to remain the same...his precious little baby face when he's sleeping.
Sometimes I'll just watch him sleep because I can see my tiny little baby in his face. He still looks the same to me. With his precious little eyelids closed, cute little button nose, and perfect tiny lips, he becomes my wee tiny little babe again.
It's rare that I'm able to capture a picture of him sleeping nowadays, but here is a comparison from when he was just a few days old to now :)

Kewt Kids is a great little shop that offers many essential items for babies and children. Their company strives to provide items that are high-quality, high-style, and high-function. Kewt Kids products are all custom designed and handmade.
Lincoln was sent their Happy Strap Bottle Leash to review. This bottle leash is absolutely perfect, and serves as a great function. It seems to be longer than most of the other bottle leashes I've tried, which is a nice feature. The leash can be used to serve a variety of multiple functions, such as to attach a bottle, sippy cup, or favorite toy. We used the strap to attach Lincoln's Sophie to his stroller :)

I cannot believe I forgot to share the cuteness of these pictures with you!
A couple of weeks ago my friend and I took Lincoln to a nearby playground. I was hoping there would be swings for him, but they only had big kid swings :(
They did however have this ginormous tire. So, we decided to plop him inside...look how teeny he looks in that big tire :)
And now proudly showing them to me :)
He got his first touch of some dirt!!!

We had a very very busy weekend. On Saturday we had a birthday/halloween party to attend. Lincoln had a ball and enjoyed playing with the balloons. Here he is with his Great Grandmother [she's 93 years old!]
Sunday we celebrated Lincoln's last first holiday...Halloween! As you all know he was a super cute giraffe. We headed to Jared's aunts house for some good food and trick or treating with his cousins kids! Here is "the ark" as we were referring to it...Lincoln is in the back, his cousin [who is exactly one month older than him] is in the front!
