3 Months Old Already!






It's true what they say about how time flies when you're having fun. Not that all of this has been fun (the 6 weeks Lincoln had in the NICU) but having him home has been SO much fun! He's such a joy and he just makes my heart melt every time he smiles at me and makes his adorable cooing noises. Just these past few weeks he has been "talking" a lot more and smiling all the time! He's over 9lbs now and 21 1/2 in. long. He's barely on the charts when he goes to the Dr. but at least he's on there! He's below the 1 percentile on everything. It's actually so fun going to the Dr. with him because, I don't know how many of you know this, but his Dr. is Teri Ernst. She is my dad's cousin. So it's so fun to go to someone who knows our family. She likes to parade him around the office and tell everyone how well he is doing considering his circumstances. She said at our last visit that he is the healthiest preemie she has ever seen! There were so many things that could've happened to him. He could've been born at 24 weeks and been super super tiny, he could've had bleeding on his brain, he could've had underdeveloped lungs and possibly not have made it because of that or been on Oxygen for a really long time, or eye problems, hearing problems, he could've had to come home on a heart monitor or had sleep apnea or acid reflux and the list goes on and on but those are the main problems that a preemie faces. HE HAS NONE OF THEM! There is only one reason for this and it's because our Heavenly Father chose to spare him from them. I'm still totally amazed at the whole thing. For some reason God chose to bring Lincoln into this world in a very difficult way and for reasons we may not know until we can ask Him in heaven some day.

Anyway....here are some recent pictures of Lincoln. Hope these will make do for the Grandma's until we can come see them this weekend! Yes you heard me right we are traveling to Nebraska this weekend to go see family. It's our first long drive with Lincoln so please pray for us! :)
