Meanwhile, Lincoln got to be the only child.
By the end of the week, he was out of his shell and really enjoying the special things we did with him. He got several Hot Dates with me and with Rob, plus with my parents. He spent the night with Rob's dad once. We took him to the aquarium and out to eat. He got to sled at a small snow day that my parents' neighborhood holds every year.
This white tiger kept it classy by marking her territory frequently--including the glass we were looking through. Ew. Oh, and she (yes, SHE) jumped up on the glass and RAWR-ed at my mom. Yikes.
I would say that the sledding was a pretty good metaphor for this week: at first, he looked terrified, but he got up with a giant smile and said, "Again!"
Sawyer came home tonight after Linc was asleep, so we'll see how the readjusting for both of them goes. Right now, I'm just hoping Saw's fever dies down.
