20 months

 Mr. Liam...  What a mess..
 Liam is wearing 2t in all his clothing now, and is in a size 6 shoe.
We are #2 potty trained, and #1 when he's reminded - but he's not quite able to recognize it on his own before it actually happens.
He says anything and everything Lincoln says, and follows it with "too".  IE: Lincoln, "I'm going to get the cowboys out" followed by Liam "I get kabows, too!"
We aren't really counting, but he's partial to 4,5, and 6 and "counts" them often.
He also likes to sing "Jesus loves me" to baby Jesus (the glowworm he sleeps with).
He's also partial to "boo" (blue) and "geen" (green) -- therefore most everything is blue or green.
He loves to ride his stick horse "GEEUP!" and "Tase" (chase).  There is absolutely nothing he loves more right now than his "Paydough tuck!" (playdough truck).
 And the kid is a total MESS!

Fall 12 - Hittin the High Notes

Seems I just can't keep up these days.  Here's an overview of some fun we had this fall!

We spent a day (or 4) at Mayse Farm this year.  Lincoln really loves to go look at the tractors, even though he REFUSES to ride on the haywagon.  Either way, there are lots of activities for the both of them there, and we always leave with a big ole' bag of honeycrisp apples.  He especially loves the gourd slingshot!  He aims for Captain Hook (out in the field) every time.
 And Liam likes to bounce around the "horse" track!

 And this is what you get when you say, "Lincoln, hold onto your brother so I can get a picture."

We also spent several days at the park.  Newburgh's park (or "Fortress of Fun") is so nice for the both of them.
 We always take our trucks with us incase we need to get in the sandpit.  Or better yet, in the little kid section, there's lots of pea gravel.  Perfect for our diggers!

We also took a day and headed over to "Lil Rexing's Pony Express".  A friend told me about this place and it is super cute.  They do "Pony Parties" for kids, but they also welcome you to come to their farm and check out their animals.  There are ponies (obviously), horses, goats, pigs, turkeys, and CATS!!  God love these little kittens, they really got wooled the day we visited.  We met our friends, the Ungethiems, there and Jack REALLY wanted to take a kitten home.  Can't believe Tammy didn't go for it - she's a sucker for animals!
 Liam also loved the kittens, but after being scared senseless by the baby pigs squealing, I think he would've welcomed any quiet animal.  Poor guy.  Totally lost it over the pigs...

We've also got to spend quite a bit of time with Ms. Annalee.  Liam is so crazy about her.  He wants to be touching/holding/feeding her all the time!
 She IS pretty irresistible...

These two are CLOWNS!
 This was actually MY costume for Halloween (a border patrol agent, and yes, my husband was a mexican), but Lincoln could not keep his hands off it!  I think he was pretty crazy about all the gadgets that came with it.
 Aren't they just a couple of haints?

 Playing on the haybales at MimMim and Paps house.

 There's always lots of exploring to be done at Mammaw Cassidy's place.

We also made several fall/halloween crafts.  Lincoln is a big fan of paint and/or glue.  Preferably at the same time.  Yikes...
 Ooh, and fun fall milestone - Liam has started going #2 on the potty!!  Yay Liam!
We've had lots of fun this fall!
