Lincoln is constantly amazing us with his huge heart. He is such a fantastic big brother to Bennett. As soon as Lincoln sees Bennett in the morning, he says "Bennett happy? He smiling?". He always makes sure Bennett has a toy or something to look at when he is in the bouncy chair or on his lambskin rug.
When Bennett is crying, Lincoln tells us to "make Bennett happy!"
On Sundays, Lincoln goes to the "class" while we are in the service. Towards the end of service today, my friend Annette brought Lincoln into the service to us. He had been crying (very unlike him) and Annette said he wouldn't let any of the teachers pick him up or tell them what had happened. They said he was pointing to another boy in the class, but they weren't sure why. The first thing he said to me was something about Bennett's pacifier (which was in my purse, so I was confused...).
Eventually, we determined that he was telling us that "a fwend (the boy in his class) took baby Beddett's pasafidet". Our guess is that the boy must have had a pacifier and Lincoln thought he had taken it from Bennett. This upset him so much that he just broke down into tears. (*disclaimer...we aren't for sure that is what happened, but that is what Lincoln kept telling us...).
I just know that Lincoln and Bennett are going to be best friends. Lincoln already watches out for his baby brother. They are both the sweetest boys I know.
