5 years old

Five years old!  Our little boy is growing up.  He is going through the stage of calling us by our first names--Austin & Megan--instead of Daddy and Mommy.  We have put a swift stop to that.  Lincoln has also become a master of Monopoly, Jr.  As mentioned in an earlier post, he can beat anyone at any time.

Lincoln has an incredible way of condensing a four-word question into one syllable.  He often (as in 5-10x/day) asks, "Djnut?" (Do you know what?)  He also consistently says "I'n" instead of "I'm".

Mac 'n cheese has come back into vogue with Lincoln (as opposed to just noodles with butter and Parmesan cheese).  He still loves just about any kinds fruit, but his current favorite is grapes.  

Lincoln really enjoys painting at preschool.  This is his Easter egg. 

He has also made great strides in writing.  He had no legible letters at the beginning of the year.  With help on the spelling, he wrote this by himself for a Dr. Seuss project at preschool. 

Lincoln has become a lot more comfortable on a bike now that he's grown taller.  His official check-up measurements were 43" and 37.5 lbs..  He has grown 3" and gained 3 lbs. in the last year, which puts his percentiles at 52 for height and 26 for weight.  Lincoln & I packed up our bikes and went on a bike ride down the Waverly Rail Trail.  It took 30 minutes to do 1 mile down and 1 mile back with only five stops to pick dandelions. :)

We love our silly snuggle buddy!
