Link has now learned to smile. It is adorable!

Go Blue!

Unlce Brandon came in town this weekend, with Grandma Cope and cousins Michael and Karri, to meet Lincoln. It was also (conveniently) the Michigan v. Ohio State game. Brandon brought Link a U of M onesie (it said "The Big House, 107,501 1/2" - very cute) and U of M pacifier. Link was all decked out to watch Michigan lose, but he sure looked cute! Lincoln now weighs 10.14 pounds and is 24 inches long. The kid definitely likes to eat. Grandma had lots of fun holding her sixth great-grandchild (with 3 more on the way, due next spring.)

Happy Halloween!

Lincoln was 6 weeks old on Halloween. He was dressed up as a bear (in my biased opinion, he was the cutest little bear EVER) and we went to the Fall Festival at church. (He wasn't all that wild about his costume; he kept trying to push his hood off of his head and cried for most of the evening...) He took pictures with all of his little pals ... us parents were, of course, much more into this activity than the kids. He also had several Halloween "accessories" that he had been given at various showers. So, we had fun dressing him up in his little pumpkin shoes, pants, hat and Halloween bib. (Poor kid :) He will hate that picture someday. My parents were in town before leaving for a cruise out of Galveston. They had a great time with Link; it seems like he gets more interactive every day.

Lincoln has been introduced to college football already - he likes to watch Game Day with Daddy on Saturday mornings and hang out with Andrew's friends - and our youthgroup guys - to watch the games. Even though we don't let him face the TV (we do read parenting books on newborn neurological development - no worries!) I think he's already becoming a Wolverine fan...his head turns toward the TV when the fight song plays. :) Too bad he's still too skinny to wear his Michigan onesie...maybe next season.
