New dress

I've had my eye on this dress from Old Navy for weeks....ha. I've been waiting for it to go more on sale than it was. It never did, but I went to the store with Dave--so of course she got it :)

She's stirring something....maybe a cake for Amber-fest that starts tomorrow :)

Last year

Amber-fest doesn't officially start for a few more days, but I was looking at pictures from last year's Amber-fest celebrations--can you believe how much my little baby has grown up??? But look how great her hair was even then!!

This picture is from the day before Amber-fest, but too cute


Just looking cute in a new outfit and new hair-do.

First day of nursery and 'hat'

Well is 18 months old...I know I can't believe it myself. Today was the first day that I was going to leave Quinn in nursery. (I've been taking her in there but I've stay with her since she wasn't officially old enough to be in there). She was doing great so I decided to sneak out. Right as I was shutting the door I heard her say 'mommy.' Ugh. I cried all the way to my class. haha...but she did great!!! So now Dave and I will get a break at church--which will be nice! And just so you understand my separation anxiety--I have NEVER left Quinn while she was awake with anyone but Dave or my mom. I know, I know....but she's my first baby. :)
Here she is in her new dress....it was only $3.48 at Target...I love Target.

Here she is literally RUNNING to give daddy his shoes so they can go outside. She only asks about 500 time a day to go outside.

Quinn started noticing hats lately. Anytime she sees one in a book she points it out. So tonight while I was putting her pj's on she kept asking for a hat. She was happy as a clam to have a hat on while daddy read her books before bed.

I got stung by a wasp. On my lip.

New baby!!

Here's the baby!! So cute huh?!? I am 13 weeks along--and due March 27th. I have been starting to feel MUCH better the last few weeks.

here's Quinn being cute this afternoon. She likes to find little places to sit--the doorstep is just the right size.

Dave took some awesome pictures of Quinn yesterday and I couldn't decide which ones were cutest...so here they all are :) I think this first one is my favorite.

this is what Quinn does when I ask her where her arms are---it's so cute. It's like she's hugging herself.

Where's your nose?

Cute little face

I cuff my jeans EVERYDAY. but Quinn just realized today that it is a great spot to stash toys.

Just quinn being super cute after her bath this afternoon. We are growing out her hair, by the way. I'm sure you were all wondering why it's been so long since I've posted a haircut picture :)

Air Show

We went to the air show at the air force base yesterday. We went with Chris and Sarah and their kids. It was an interesting afternoon!! Quinn has been obsessed with airplanes lately and every time we go out side she looks for one. The funny part is that she couldn't have cared less about the airplanes at the air show!

All the kids with uncle Dave

I didn't get a good group shot yesterday, but you can kind of see our little spot. Nice pose Chris!

My awesome new toy

"After I pushed this toy around the store for a half hour and didn't put it down my mommy bought it for me. It even plays loud music!!"

"I thought I'd try to give Elmo a push on it."

"He fell off...bye bye Elmo."

"I guess I'll carry him and push at the same time. I learned how to multi-task from my mommy."

quinn's new shoes

Just Quinn being cute and playing with her animals. She can say almost any animal you ask her to. And if she sees them in a book she can point to them and say their name without any help!! so cute. Still her all-time favorite is puppy. I think the cutest one she says are 'mouse' and 'owl'

Us getting ready for our walk. (our walk was AMAZING by the way--i got a FREE dresser. someone had just put it outside their house with a free sign on it and I was the lucky one to get the ugly thing. I'll do a before and after picture once Dave gets it out of the car for me--i'm sure it will be cute by the time I'm done with it!)

Just a shot of quinn's cute new shoes. I don't know what she was grumping about.

my BIG girl

A little heath update for Quinn--she had a three month follow up with the specialist she's been seeing. Everything is looking GREAT. She weighs 18.7 pounds!!! woo hoo!! that's right--i said 18!!! The blood in her poop is gone (thought you'd all be curious about her poop) and we can start tapering her off her medication. She'll still have to go back on it if she gets a cold this winter, but it's better than her getting really sick again. Maybe we can just avoid her getting a cold....ha.

Saturday picnic

We had nothing going on this Saturday so we decided to have a picnic at the park before summer was over. Here is Quinn enjoying the swing--actually she doesn't enjoy it, I don't know how I captured the smile

Quinn LOVES to hold your hand and take you somewhere. She has learned a new power she has over us because it is so cute when she holds our hand that it is hard to resist

Quinn daring to go down the slide on her belly. She usually doesn't like slides that much, but she liked them today!

My handsome husband....

A picture of Quinn's 'owies' on her face. She fell on the cement pretty hard yesterday and banged herself up. I was SO SCARED she knocked out all of her teeth, but thank goodness, they are all still there. Just a fat lip and scabbed nose and cheek.

Quinn and tables

Here is Quinn pointing to her nose. she loves to find her nose, eyes, ears, and teeth. sometimes it is the first thing she does to me in the morning---poke my eyes out so i know where they are. it's cute though--it's a game she is usually up to playing. it was the only way i could get her to look at the camera

putting the mommy on the potty


My tables all done

sorry--i don't know why these pictures didn't turn out that well. But we are very happy with the tables--remember, they were only $15--for both!!!
