This month Lincoln:
He is still the happiest, sweetest baby! He leans towards you when you give him kisses and cuddles his head on your shoulder when you hold him. He loves the swimming pool, baths and any other form of water. This whole month he has had a diaper rash. We have taken him to the doctor many times. It's finally going away. He was also diagnosed with Eczema, like Brayden.

Milestones: He started crawling a couple weeks ago. It's been more of a dragging his legs behind him but he just recently started moving his knees. He's VERY quick. He follows me from room to room. He started pulling up a little over a week ago. He had been trying for a couple weeks and finally succeeded. He will maul you, climb, grab all over you if you are sitting on the floor.

He kept crawling across the couch while I tried to take these pictures. Ugh.

He hasn't gotten any new teeth. So, he only has the bottom middle two. He eats snacks more comfortably now though such as puffs, little crunchies and some table food (like blueberries, pasta, etc.) He was getting snacks caught in his mouth every once and a while before but finally has been swallowing better. He was trying to eat too fast. He eats baby food around two times a day. He hates veggie baby food, like his brother.

He wears mostly 18-24 month clothing. 12 months are getting rather tight. Haha.

He still goes to sleep around 10pm, wakes up around 9am, and still sleeps through the night. He puts himself to sleep in bed. I just sit him in his crib and he goes to sleep. He usually naps twice, noon-ish and often a late nap around 5pm. He has gotten better at naps. Sometimes he has to be fed, rocked, cuddled, etc.

Pulling up on the couch. He thinks he is so grown.

From recently:
 He somehow hurt himself pretty badly this month but it's healing! No idea how it happened. :(

(Compare this update to his past updates and Brayden's updates.)
