Lincoln's First Photo Shoot

My friend, the talented Amanda Lamb, came to take pictures of Lincoln last Saturday. She was so patient with him as he was very confused about being moved around during his naptime and needed a lot of consoling. She did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend her to anyone in Anchorage looking for a photographer. Thanks Amanda! We love these pictures and they'll be going up in frames around our house here pretty soon!
Here are some more random shots of Lincoln. There is one more Lincoln post coming that is from his first "photo shoot" last weekend. These ones below are mostly of the funny things he does with his hands and arms both in and out of sleep as well as some great faces he makes. He is so entertaining.

Much of the time lately I've been putting him to sleep on the Boppy pillow so he can sleep on an incline, helping with those random and sometimes disturbing mid-sleep burps. Usually I put another smaller pillow underneath him to make the incline less steep, but this time I forgot and he found himself squished down in the hole, which made for a great picture:
If this doesn't melt your insides, I don't know what will. I probably have a couple dozen shots that are exactly like this only with different clothes on. Matthias is such a good dad and Lincoln loves to sleep on his chest.
This looks like a moving shot, but he held this position for quite some time. He looks like the Statue of Liberty:
Yes...he is holding his arms up in his sleep. How this is relaxing is beyond me.
This was something he did all on his own with his hands. He held them there for a couple of minutes while looking around.
His chunky knee:
Another classic sleep shot, below. He holds these positions like they're no effort at all. I like to think he was having a dream about saving the world here:
I just can't get enough of this little guy. He makes me so happy. I will try to be better about being more selective in my picture posting after month 1. I just didn't know how to trim it down. We miss you all and wish you could be closer in proximity so you could hold and enjoy Lincoln with us. We are getting so excited for Christmas!!

Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln

Here are some pictures to tide you over until we post the bajillion more that I want to post but don't have time for right now. We have the cutest boy in the history of the world. It's hard to keep up with all the cute pictures we have. Be patient.

Lincoln Nathanael Cicotte

Lincoln was born late on Friday, 10/1/10. Michelle didn't come home until Tuesday, so we apologize for the delay in getting the word out. Rather than brag about what a great kid he is (which there'll be plenty of time for later) I'll just get to the pictures. I uploaded these in small form, but you can click to enlarge.

Lincoln was very happy to finally be held by Mom once she got out of the recovery room.

Ole!

We do a lot of sleeping right now.

Call me babe, OK?
