my sweet girl

I don't know how many of you know about the health issues we've had with Quinn the past 6 months. We took her to a specialist yesterday who wanted us to have an endoscopy and colonoscopy done on Quinn--this morning. So yesterday we had to starve the poor girl and could only give her clear liquids (not good news since she doesn't like juice). This morning we had to be at the hospital REALLY early and they took her back to surgery at 7:30. We won't get the biopsy results until Monday so I will spare you all of the things they think she might have until we have more conclusive results. Hopefully we can finally have some answers as to why she has been coughing for 6 months. (they are also concerned about her poor weight gain and they found blood in her stool).
Here's Quinn and daddy walking into the hospital. Thank goodness for her trusty elephant.

Here's a tired, stressed, and frazzled momma--with a mad Quinn. She hates to be weighed--let alone have to change out of her clothes and get her vitals taken. They ended up giving her a sedative to help her deal...it helped us all deal.

Thanks to all of our sweet friends and family who helped us through the last couple of days--you know who you are--and i love you!

Apron

I made this cute apron the last couple of days!! It's reversible--the other side is opposite fabric

Here's a picture of the back--the top picture makes it look funny, but it fits really cute in back!

Memorial Day

We went to a park in Boise to celebrate Memorial Day. Here is Quinn REALLY excited about seeing some people playing tennis.

I thought this was a great picture of Quinn--too bad she is eating. We have SO many pictures of her eating lately--I don't know why.

Quinn and Dad--just being cute

LOTUS HAIR SPA!!!!

Dave made a website for our friends Mitch and April who have a salon. It's been finished for a while, but there has been domain name issues. It is finally up and running, so we wanted you to all check it out!!

Sunday morning

Here are some pictures we took of Quinn yesterday....


Here she is pointing to and asking for her 'drink' (cow's milk) Woohoo---she is finally weaned completely from nursing!!!

Quinn and Evie!!

Paul, Leslie, and Evie are in Boise all summer--here is the first picture we've taken of the girls (they are four days apart!) Here is Quinn stealing Evie's cheese. Evie started stuffing them in her mouth because she realized Quinn was eating them too!! They are pretty young to understand sharing, so we decided we'll have to have four of everything around --so they can each have one for each hand.
(yes--I made Quinn's shirt--she didn't get her jeans back on after a diaper change, but it can almost be pulled off as a dress)

ps--I was out and about all day, but when I came home and realized I had gotten SIX comments already on my last post I teared up a little bit--thanks to all of you who left me a comment :)

Just more pictures (Am I the only one who gets sick of having to come up with a title???)

I always think Quinn looks so cute in the morning. It's like I forget when I don't see her for 12 hours--them I"m like "Wow, baby girl, you are so cute, let's take a picture"

I think it's official!! I might be wrong--but I'm pretty sure she has her first molar!!! It's about time--it's been like 6 months since she has gotten a tooth. And just because she was such a trooper getting her tooth I made her a dress.

We were trying to get another video of her dancing--but we got this instead. Just as good :)

I made a double sided sling!! Cute, huh?


Dave in heaven.

bottles

Quinn has really liked to unscrew stuff lately--bottles, etc. This one she has carried around for two days and is quite good at it...

But sometimes she can't get it off--and gets kinda mad

Swimming!!!

"Here I am, sitting in my new pool. It's nice with no water in it!"

"Maybe I'll test it before I get in..."

"It's cold--I'll just get in half way--and hey!! What happened to my cracker?!"

"Dada--get me outta here!"

...

Here's a picture of Quinn wearing the outfit I just made her. I sewed the skirt--and stamped the onesie.


One more picture so you can see her cute shoes and hair clips :)

Quinn

Once again, Quinn is wearing new clothes. I just can't seem to help myself sometimes. This one was worth it though--I teared up after I got her dressed this morning because she looked so cute. PLus--I think the dress was a whopping 5 dollars. Totally worth it.

old elephant..new elephant

Who knows where Quinn got her love of elephants. We have an elephant book that I have to hide sometimes because i get so sick of reading it. I got her an elephant at the dollar store--this is what happened.

So I made her a new one!

NEW JOB FOR DAVE!!!!

Dave got a new job!! He starts in two weeks--and is SO EXCITED. It is an amazing opportunity and looks like it will be a perfect fit for Dave. Quinn and I wanted to celebrate, so we decorated and made a cake. He deserves it--he has worked so hard--it has been a stressful few days! He is going to be a designer for Jus International. If you want, you can check out their website--www.Drinkjus,com

"Leave me alone, I'm starving!!!!!"

I found Quinn in the fridge

Reaching into the grape bowl

yep--that's a grape in her mouth

quinn talking

Here is a video of Quinn saying some of her words. Give it about 30 seconds before she warms up and decides to talk.

Trouble

I know I've been on the computer too long when...


and...

(she is looking between the desk and the roll out keyboard section, by the way)

Mother's Day!!!

Here we are sitting outside. It seemed warm when we left church, but it was a little chilly after we got outside.

Here is Quinn focusing on cramming her mouth full of goldfish crackers...(Don't worry, mom, I get the whole grain kind)



She'd occasionally share with dad.

Me--modeling the skirt I made this week.
