lincoln recently celebrated his much anticipated fourth birthday. he is such a joy. he is my snuggle-bug and loves to give kisses & hugs, especially at bedtime. although, it’s “just hugs, dad, just hugs” when daddy has a pringly (prickly) face. he is the perfect age to keep up with his big brother (7 1/2) and to amuse his little brother (20 mos). he is one of the cutest kids you’ll ever see (or so we’ve been told — not just tooting our own horn here, people!) with a laughter that can knock your socks off and/or make you weep from the sheer innocent beauty of it. you are so precious to us, lincoln boy. we surely do love you!!!
