Birthday, Two Years Old, the finale

It was quite the Birthday Extravaganza!

Lincoln took a great early nap so he was a total and complete All-Star for his whole show. The food was great and the company was wonderful. There are a number of principles and ideas that Jenn and I will instill into Lincoln (and his brothers and/or sisters) over the years and one of them is: appreciate family and friends. Jenn, Lincoln and I have been so wonderfully blessed with great family and friends... Praise God!

Here is a sampling of the fun:

Meng gave Lincoln a beautiful Chinese pen, much like an ink-brush.
And then Lincoln started to wind down a bit.

He never made much more than a short fuss, though, until I had to take him up for bed. The last thing he said to me as I left his room was, "Bicycle!" Jenn and I gave him a Radio Flyer tricycle that he can't yet use properly, but he loves to climb on it. Anyway, tomorrow ought to be a fun day as he really gets to play with his new toys.

Thanks so much to everyone who extended birthday wishes to Lincoln. Jenn and I are so proud of him and blessed to have him be a part of our family. We can't believe it's been two years. At times it seems longer than that, and at other times it seems like just yesterday we were at the hospital with him. Time flies, and from what I hear, it only goes by faster as we all get older.

And on that note, it's time for bed.
