Last Thursday Lincoln and I flew from Salt Lake City to Oakland, California, then caught another flight home after a two hour layover. I delayed Lincoln's naps so they corresponded with the flights, then let him nurse to sleep.
On the second flight we sat next to a man who looked similar to a 49ers football player, but I was kinda (really) determined to get Lincoln to sleep, so I was all, "you don't scare me, crazy large man spilling onto my seat and stealing my arm rest!" which I more thought than said directly to his face. Then I nursed Lincoln and he fell asleep within the minute. The man ordered a whiskey and proceeded to talk about his three year old daughter who refuses to go to bed at a reasonable hour. Mission accomplished.
P.S. Lincoln and I matched outfits.

Luckily we've found something that is dairy free for me, delicious for Tyce, and whaaat? Lincoln loves it too? Done. Wham, bam, thank you Thai Siam.

We finally found one that wasn't too big, or too small. Hopefully this one will be juuust right. Except it's taking forever to get here! My solution: dinner in the bath. Without a highchair he ends up in the bath anyways, so I thought why not skip a messy step of smearing food all over the kitchen and eat meals while taking a bath. Needless to say, Lincoln's had lots of baths lately.

Since Tyce had work and school until late Tuesday, I snuck up to his work and decorated his car. I'm sure he appreciated the teenage years throwback, and Lincoln loved the balloons Tyce brought home that I had tied to his car. I made brown sugar glazed salmon for a late dinner, then finished off the Valentine's Day candy (since it would be considered "old" the next day, I had no choice).

Today is the fourth Valentine's Day that Tyce and I have shared together, and you know what? This one is the best! Not because of anywhere we ate or somewhere we went, but because this year we have a greater understanding of love - there was so much missing in our hearts until Lincoln! We know one another better, have fallen in love watching each other become parents, and even though bedtime is now a few hours earlier, our lives are so much happier!
Happy Valentine's Day! Hope your day is filled with chocolate and kisses!

It's long enough to pull back into a ponytail and short enough that it doesn't touch my shoulders and do that annoying flip thing. It's a little ombre and a lot warmer, and although I seriously miss being blonde, I do not miss the maintenance. Here's to second chances (at least for my hair color)!

Besides my fruit snacks mysteriously disappearing and the bite of ice cream Lincoln was fed when I wasn't looking, I'd say I'm a pretty good babysitter. Of course, I am the oldest of 6 siblings, so I do have a little babysitting experience, it's just been a long time!

I see a Lincoln looking at me!
I keep waiting for Brown Bear to get old but so far we still read it on a daily basis. Now, Lincoln points to the animals, pulls the tabs back and turns the pages. Good thing it's heavy cardboard or this book would be toast already!
