Like mother, like son

When Lincoln and I first got married, he noticed that I have a funny habit of tucking my thumb under my pointer finger. I don't realize I do this, and I almost always do it in my sleep or when I am relaxed. Apparently, it is Lithuanians version of giving someone the bird. Lincoln went to Lithuania on his mission, and he thought it was so funny that I would do this gesture. Fast forward a few years and imagine our surprise when we started to notice Clark doing the same thing!! I love my little boy.

Clark also has adopted my sleep habits. He is a really bad sleeper at night, but wants to take cat naps during the day. He is such a sweet and peaceful sleeper during the day... if only that would transfer to the nights.

He may have my thumb habits and my sleeping habits, but he has his daddy's smile. He is so expressive and handsome.

Now, we just need to wait and see if he gets our other funny habits. Let's just hope he doesn't get my annoying habit of never putting the toilet paper roll on the dispenser.

baby, baby, baby, baby

Bruce is Meryn's baby, Margo's baby Bryn, Nikki's baby Grant, and my little guy Clark.

Each of my sisters and I had a baby last year. It wasn't planned, but when you are all in the baby making age, it is bound to happen. This Christmas, that is how long it has been since I posted, we took pictures of our precious new additions wearing onesies that my BFF Sarah bought for me. Clark is only 1 month old in these pictures. I can't believe how much he has grown. It will be fun to take pictures of these kids as they grow. They have already changed so much. I am so happy to be in such good company with my sisters, sister-in-laws, cousins, and friends who are having babies. I need all the advice and help I can get.
