Three Years of Joy

He was my first baby born while I was writing this blog.

I found out just a few short weeks after I started blogging that he was on his way into our family.

Today, he turns three. Lincoln - my third baby boy.

It has been such a joy sharing his life on here - announcing his birth to friends and family, sharing my struggle as we prayed for him to grow, and chronicling his life through pictures and stories.

It's amazing to look back - through the pictures on this blog - and see how he has changed and grown and relive moments of his life.

I spent some time today looking through his photos - the ones I've shared here. My sweet little boy has grown up right before my eyes, and yet, I don't see him as more than a baby. And, since so many of you have been here for much of his life, I thought I'd share what I saw today.

Here's a look at how he's changed over the last three years.

One hour.

One week.

One month.

Two months.

Three months.

Four months.

Five months.

Six months.

Seven months.

Eight months.

Nine months.

Ten months.

Eleven months.

One Year.

Two years.






And, today. His first day as "a three".

All he wants is a "bawoon" cake. We promised him one when Grandma and Grandpa come to visit and we have his party.

Happy Birthday - to one of the sweetest children I have ever known.

I love you, Lincoln.



  1. Oh so grown up already. I love that little boy and wish I could be close enough to watch him grow up even more.

    Thank you for letting me love on him and kiss his cheeks and more. I will treasure those memories forever.

  4. Just showed the post to Dave. We had fun looking back at your little boy. When I got the last photo Dave said, "Wow". I think our little baby boy has grown up.

  5. Happy Birthday to sweet Lincoln! I remember following your pregnancy on the blog and I remember when he was born. I also remember the evening we got to spend with him. He's a precious gift!

  6. I can't believe he is three already. What a precious boy! Happy birthday, Lincoln!

  7. He is someday going to knock some girls socks off, eh! He is so adorable. I don't know your family but I feel as if I do just watching your blog. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Awwwwww... I am one of those that started reading right before he was born. And I've loved every single photo since - he's a pantry snack snatcher after my own heart. haha. Happy Birthday to your super sweet boy!

  9. Awww....Happy Birthday, sweet, sweet boy!!! I think he starts to look like "himself" at around 3 mo. It's the eyes. Seriously, he's THREE already?!?

  10. What sweet, sweet photos! You must be so glad that you are recording these precious days. Don't blink.

  11. I remember the days reading your blog while you were expecting him. What a cutie!
