"Doc Lincoln"

Like most 3 year olds, Lincoln has a little medical bag set, complete with stethoscope, thermometer, blood pressure cuff, etc.  He refers to himself as "Doc Lincoln," whenever he plays with it. 

One night last week, literally out of nowhere, I started to get light headed and really short of breath.  Normally these sort of things would worry me, but... I'm pregnant. These things happen, especially in the second trimester.  It happened a few times when I was pregnant with Lincoln, so I knew what I needed to do.  I had my water bottle right next to me {as I always do}, and chugged a ton of water. 

Of course right at that moment, Lincoln decided he wanted to play a game...which of course was pretty impossible for me.

I told him Mommy needed to rest for a little bit and lay down.  To my shock, he said, "Okay Momma.  Lincoln cuddle Mom on couch." And with that, I lied down on my left side, he covered me up with a blanket, and then jumped right in for cuddles.

It was the perfect medicine, and just what I needed. 

I love seeing the little person my sweet son is becoming.  He is compassionate and caring.  Little moments like this make me think I must be doing something right.
