happy 6 on 6

today marks the 6 year anniversary of mine & michael's 1st date*.  (oops, just realized i never flipped my bedroom calendar to december!)  

6 years ago today was a friday, i do believe...(yes it was, i just checked on google). it was christmas in the city (um, did i miss that this year or is it next weekend?).  lyx & i went to christmas in the city together, i think she might have had to play her cello at the bank.  michael & i met up at the mall (ouu, how exciting, the batavia mall!).  i was sooo nervous.  i then dropped my car & lyx off at my parents house and told lyx to tell mom & dad i was going out! haa!  i didn't want to tell them!  poor little lyx, having to do my dirty work; the life of the youngest.  mike & i then drove to the gas station on 33 to get a newspaper to find out what movies were playing nearby.  we decided on analyze that (i had to google that too...i can never remember which one is the first one and which is the second one....for those that don't know, analyze that is the sequel to analyze this...see, confusing!) at the strand in brockport.  we had some extra time beforehand, so we went to the coffee shop across the street from the theatre and got some drinks.  i think michael just dropped me off at home after the movie, where i probably snuck (is that a word?) off to bed before my parents could interrogate me.  however, the next day i did have to come clean that yes, i did go out on date with mr. mcgrath from church.  giggle. 

you're the one that i love

*this was our official first date....we did browse through a barnes & nobles one time together, but that was just happenstance (we both were secretly crushing on each other at the time though).  and we did meet one time in a parking lot to talk, but secret rendezvous** in parking lots do not count as dates!

**i was looking up rendezvous to see how to make it plural and i found this definition, which would definitely pertain to our parking lot meeting: "the process of bringing two spacecraft together".  and for those wanting to know: "The words bourgeois, chassis, corps, faux pas, gardebras, précis, pince-nez, and rendezvous all have plurals spelled the same way but pronounced differently." 

tonight we are going to watch a movie and drink sparkling grape juice ( favorite) in honor of 6 on 6.  although now that i think about it, we should have rented analyze that for the occasion.  oh well, hancock it is.   

also, i thought i should share with you, my lower leg has been numb and tingling all day...just the front of my leg.  it's kinda creep-sauce.  it only bothers me when i rub it...i didn't even notice it till i was shaving.  if anything further develops, i'll let ya know, since i know this medical mystery will be haunting you.

i'm sitting here on the couch, watching lincoln smell his feet as he watches winnie the poop (that's what he calls him).  and i thought, i must write this post already.  this kid makes me laugh everyday.  he says and does the silliest things.  and so here are a few for your reading enjoyment:  

(ignore the dates...i do a horrible job filling in the boys baby books, so maybe one day i'll actually fill them in and i'm using my blog as my "notes" to remember what to write.  my mom did a spectacular job with all of our baby books, filling them with lots of cute stories and anecdotes....wannabe, wannabe, wannabe, like mom).

(while in the van with us and marla - on summer vaca):
linc: i want to sit on marmo's lap
me: no lincoln, you can't sit on marmo's lap in the van
linc: it's too dirty

things overheard on the monitor upon linc's awakening (summer 08):
"i want coffee, donuts and chicken"
"happy lincoln's birthday" (this on july 14th...linc's bday is june 13th)
"mike, mike - where is he?"

while mike was changing linc the other day (Nov. 08):
"malacai's got a big head.  lincoln's got a big head.  we look funny."

in the van (11.30.08):
me: linc, do you want to get a christmas tree?
linc: no, i want some trick or treat.
about 2 minutes later:
linc: malacai's a burger.  a cheesy one.

anytime we leave any place:
"i have fun at ______." (wherever it was that we'd just been - mimi's house, the brown store {wegmans}, the dentist...)

while pretending to talk on the phone:
"thanks so much, bye, love you"

in the morning when i get him & cai up together, linc walks to the top of the stairs and waits for me to pick him up & carry him down.  and when i do, he either says, "two boys" or "two brothers" as i carry him & cai down.

and there's so many more and i'm forgetting them all ready!  i should be filling this blog with his cuteness so that one day i can fill his baby book.  and as i type this he is pulling off malacai's socks and yelling "stinky foot"....the kid has stinky feet issues today.  

please ignore my crazy eyes and mike's nose...just appreciate how cute & silly my boy is.
