Cute face

I just thought she looked cute in this picture. Do you guys all think all of our pictures of Quinn look the same? I try to put up a varirty of pictures, but I worry that to other people all of my posts look the same!!

Quinn's new moves

Quinn ends up on her knees like this a lot lately...it's funny. huh?

Anything she can find to pull herself up on is fun for her lately. This wasn't quite high enough to get upright, but she still did it over and over!


These pictures were taken after her nap, so her hair was a bit crazy.

Quinn walking with her bike

Here's Quinn taking some very wobbly steps with the help of her bike. If any of you forgot that Quinn is in the 5th percentile for her height and weight and in the 75th for her head--here's a reminder. (Aunt Julie--she loves this toy now!!)

This weekend.

Where's Quinn?

She went to town on this orange last night..she liked it!! Check out Dave's nice Christmas beard!!

She looked so cute for church today, but I couldn't get a great shot of her...this was the best one.

Quinn's First Thanksgiving

Quinn hanging out in her bunny robe waiting to take a bath.

Is this not the cutest picture ever???!! I love it.


I made this sock monkey for Quinn for Christmas...it looks like she's getting it early. Merry Christmas Quinn!

For Thanksgiving dinner we went to Jason and Cristy's house. They live WAY up a mountain and have the most amazing view. Here's me and Quinn.

Dad and Quinn.

All of us in front of their fireplace. Quinn was SUCH a good girl all day yesterday. She even skipped a nap and you wouldn't even know it!! She played with everyone and only cried when I wanted to change her diaper. I think I deserved it though--because last night she was up ALL night....okay, maybe not ALL night, but SIX times.

Practicing her "B's"

I thought this was a super cute video of Quinn. She's been working on her "B's." She seems to talk a LOT lately, it's very cute. I'll give you one guess which side she slept on.

TWO toys

Quinn likes to have two toys at one time lately. It's funny to watch her get one in her hand but try so hard to get another one with the same hand. She's amazingly successful depending on the toys!

Grab Ball

This is a picture of the grab ball I made for Quinn. My friend, April, and I decided that it would be a fun, fast project we could do for our babies.....HOURS later I finally have mine finished. It turned out cute though, and Quinn has crawled over to get it a couple times, so it was all worth it!!

Ha--her socks don't match. Her Baby GAP socks are the only ones that she can't pull off easily. (she only has a few pairs because they are as expensive as grown-up socks) After she pulls them off I just grab whatever I can find so her feet don't freeze.

Time for a Gate?

I always make a pile of things to take upstairs on the bottom steps. Quinn found them yesterday....I think it may be time to get a gate!!

Quinn looking cute

I thought this was a cute close-up

More pictures from this weekend...

Quinn and Uncle Paul. Cute...

Mom and Quinn. Leslie--how did you not end up in any pictures this weekend??

Crafting weekend with Leslie

When Paul, Leslie and Evie were here this weekend we had a chance to be creative! Here is a onesie I made Quinn. (Thanks April for the idea, ribbon, and talking me into this cute fabric!!)

These were my favorite thing we made this weekend...I'm going to have to find a cute place to put them!

Some candles we decorated. We made a couple other things, but they are not quite done yet!

Quinn walking with a blanket

This is a video of Quinn walking with the help of a blanket. She liked it for a while, but I started the camera when she had done enough! It's funny though--notice how we are all laughing in the background.

Quinn standing

Quinn is learning to stand up!! Check out how she gets up like it's no big deal.

Already sharing

Paul, Leslie and Evie came for a visit this weekend! Here are the girls playing together. Notice Quinn's pointer finger---she uses it for everything lately.

Very determined....

Yesterday I found Quinn trying to get in this box I had on the floor...

It's almost like you can see the wheels turning...."now that I got in, how do I get out?"

Here she is getting out...boy do I love her!!

Here Grandma Stevens

My mom didn't like the crying pictures--so here's one from a few minutes later where she is smiling. The crying ones just seemed more interesting to me when I was making the post---but whatever makes you happy mom!!

ouch...

She is actually pinching her finger in this toy, but it was a great shot of her top teeth!

She looks so cute even when she's mad..

Quinn in a box

Thanks for the box Aunt Julie! Quinn loves to crawl in between stuff, so she had a lot of fun with this box!

Sleep

Guess who slept through the night last night??? ME!!! You know why?? Because Quinn did too!! She slept from 6 pm until 5 am...she hasn't quite adjusted to the time change. But I don't think I have ever been so happy to wake up at 5 am--since I hadn't been up in the middle of the night! I won't get too excited until she does it a few times, but it was still a nice night.

Quinn Running

Hey Grandpa Stevens, Quinn wants to be on your cross country team--she's practicing already!
My nephew Jonathan said 'More videos!' So here ya go! Quinn loves to have us help her walk--yesterday we tried doing it fast and she thought it was so fun!! She's way too little to be walking or running--it's funny to see her try!

Quinn laughing

We took this cute video of Quinn laughing last night while we were putting on her pajamas. The silliest things make her giggle. I think the real funny part was dad making faces at her while he was filming!

Sorry everyone...I can't get this video to work for some reason...I'll keep trying! video

Quinn's new coat

So I found this adorable coat on clearance at Baby GAP...it's totally not her size and a boy coat, but it looked too cute on her. It is size 0-3 months so thank goodness she is a peanut. Cross your fingers it fits her all winter as great as it does now! And Quinn can pull off a boy coat-- no one will ever even know!

If you zoom in on this picture you can see her tooth!

Big Week for Quinn

Quinn has had a busy week!
She seems to be warming up to food--she seems to like very bland things: bread, baked potatoes, and her new fave: Cheerios.
She is SO close to crawling. She crawled once, but now seems to be on her knees but still moving with her forearms instead of her hands.
Took her first bath in the big tub (she was outgrowig the baby one--she wanted to roll over in it)
Her first Halloween
Plus two new teeth!!

Not a becoming shot--but check out those teeth! The one on her left hasn't actually poked through yet--but it obviously will any time!

Quinn knows how to find me in the kitchen. This is a funny video of her coming to get me. Pay attention to the end--she works so hard to get to the spoon then hits herself in the head. She usually makes that much noise when she's getting around.

Our Halloween Adventures

"Hey mom, are we out of pickles?"

Pure joy playing with dad.



"Check out my cool sneaks--they match the onesie mom made me"

Look at her up on all fours!! She took her first official crawl without being on her belly!
We went to Trunk or Treat last night and dressed Quinn up. She was the cutest baby there!!

It was past her bed time, so sometimes she looked a bit dazed....here she is making a funny face.

Proud moment for mom---her long hair coming out the back of her hat.

Here's a view so you can see the back of her costume..the shell is hilarious!
