This cutest kid EVER was born in February - the 11th. Yep, it's April now. So sue me. Here's the scoop....
Lincoln Alan Schmidt (Alan is after my Dad, Alan Barrie Best) was born on February 11th at 4:10 p.m. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches of pink baby perfection!
He was much more cooperative than his older brother Parker, who resisted a few forced attempts to bring him into this crazy world. Lincoln, on the other hand, was gently invited and BAM! There he was!
Ashley, did an exceptional job.
This is the AFTER picture. Really. See the tiny little babe in her arms? Doesn't she look amazing. I never looked that good BEFORE giving birth.
THIS is before:
OK, not really, but close.
My gorgeous daughter about to have a baby!!
I couldn't be more excited about being a grandma again! I'm very blessed to have been there for this birth as well! Jon stayed home with our kids and played Mr. Mom for a week. He did a great job. The kids didn't miss me at all.
Does he look like ME??
We got little Lincoln off to a good start with his very own iPod and some really great tunes. He was rockin' out to the Rolling Stones.
He is actually taking his first test, which he passed with flying colors - top of his class as a matter of fact! His hearing is perfect!
Parker took the whole event in stride. First thing he wanted to do with Lincoln was play ball.
