4 years + 1 month

It has already been a month since Lincoln's birthday!  I got really nervous at first because starting from the day her turned 4, he suddenly stopped napping again.  It was almost a week before he finally crashed one afternoon.  Thankfully, we're back to a pretty regular napping schedule.  When school got out I introduced "quiet hour" (a.k.a. nap time).  The number one rule is that no one is allowed to talk to each other.  Lincoln almost always falls asleep for a 1.5-2 hour nap.  Emily is pretty good about quietly entertaining herself, but knows exactly when the hour is up.  At least it gives me an auditory break. ;o)

Lincoln never uses the "b" word, but his constant question is, "What are we going to do today/tomorrow/next?"  We can go over the schedule ten times, and he'll still ask again.  I don't think he's necessary looking for me to continually entertain him, but he's not obsessed with scheduling either.  I think it's just a fun question to ask.

Another thing Lincoln is into is telling Knock Knock jokes.  Except it's always the same one that he heard from Emily.
Lincoln: Knock, Knock
Me/Austin: Who's there?
Lincoln: Boo
Me/Austin: Boo who?
He rarely finishes with the punch line, "Why are you crying?"

Lincoln loves wearing sleeveless shirts.  He always asks for "no sleebes."  He is wearing one of his favorites in his monthly picture.

Lastly, it is well known that Lincoln has quite the facial expressions and charming ways.  Whenever he suggests something (like playing Angry Birds or going outside or getting ice cream) he casually says, "Maybe I could play Angry Birds or somefing" accompanied by a nonchalant shoulder shrug.
