And Then There Were 6

Meet the new man in my life, Lincoln...


 Lincoln was born at 7:39am on April 19th, weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces, and is 21 inches long.

Oh, and he is just the sweetest little thing. This mama is definitely hooked.

I'm typing with one hand and holding him with the other.

He. Smells. So. Good.

After searching for and finally choosing a C name, we came across the name Lincoln a few weeks ago and never looked back.

He was without a doubt, the missing Linc to our family. :)

We are so, so thankful for him. And Eric? Well, let's just say he's a pretty proud daddy right now :).

So I'm off for now to feed him and get some more snuggles. I'll be back soon with more pictures!

He is so precious!!! I love the name. Infact we love it so much we wanted that for C's name had she been a boy. We felt like Travis was perfect for when he came as it was my maiden name. But for a third or fourth if we should be so lucky...that's my name.
I am so glad you have a new man in your life...truly a little boy in a mama's heart will never leave it the same. Hugs, ML
