Quinn being silly and saying 'ho ho ho'

Quinn really wanted these bloomers on her head...she even left them on for like a half hour. She also found these socks in her brother's closet and wanted those on as well...they are sure cute, huh? anyway--it made for an interesting outfit. Not to mention that she is once again without pants--not only that but her onesie isn't even snapped.

I promised Kelsey a video of Quinn saying Santa. So you all not only get 'santa,' but 'ho ho ho,' and the number 'two,' before she got distracted by something on the computer.

And another one of our family pics

Progress on my countdown calendar

Here is the calendar so far. I still need to put all the numbers on, the stem, the star, and put the back on. But I spent SO MUCH TIME sewing all the pockets on, I thought I'd take a picture.

Just like mommy

Quinn wanted a necklace on yesterday....it was very cute. Plus this shopping bag and she looks a lot like me :) you should hear her say the word 'shopping.' Someday soon maybe she'll invent her own 'Quinn-fund' and ask her daddy to donate.

Day at the Park

Quinn and I went to the park today with our friends April and Zander. Quinn had a blast!! Here she is playing some instruments they had at the park




Quinn loved this purple tunnel

Then she insisted that her pregnant mommy get in the tunnel too. April was kind of enough to snap a picture of me getting stuck,,,

The slides brought her pure joy!



For some reason Quinn insisted on sitting in daddy's chair for dinner last night---but still wanted to use her tray.

my big belly

We had an OB appointment today. When my doctor asked if I had any questions or concerns--I told her that I was concerned I was gaining too much weight too fast.....and guess what??? SHE AGREED WITH ME!!! haha...so I guess I'm getting fat.

Quinn thought it looked like fun to stand against the wall too.

My latest pockets for my Christmas countdown--thanks everyone for your ideas--I've obviously used them! I still have like 6 more to go--so if you get any inspiration let me know!! (the bear obviously isn't done yet..)

Quinn...I swear she has pants.

Quinn was helping me cook today and found this funnel--she thought it was an awesome hat--she walked around for quite a while holding it on her head

Check out those eyelashes!! And I love the expression on her face--telling me all about the book she was looking at.

Quinn asks me for a 'blankey' 20 times a day. Even in the kitchen today--she laid down on the cold tile floor and asked me for a blankey...So here she is pretending to take a nap on the chair today.

Christmas countdown

So you think I've been sitting around?? I saw this adorable advent calendar at Pottery Barn and decided to make one for Quinn. It is a 3-foot Christmas tree with 25 pockets to put a little something in for her every day (I never said she wasn't spoiled). So here are the pockets I've made so far.....boy is it turning out to be a lot of work!! Any ideas of what else I could put on a pocket?T? 25 is turning out to be a LOT to come up with. I'm sure you're wondering why I don't just copy pockets from the pottery barn one....well, I have and I'm still out of ideas. Nothing too difficult--I'm not that good.

Quinn

Quinn tonight before bed with her usual pile of books thrown about her...

Eleven??!!!

I've been trying VERY hard to get a video of Quinn counting...I finally got a cute one today and it WON'T UPLOAD for some reason. So...sorry. You'll have to just keep on believing me that Quinn can count...she actually got up to NINE today by herself...no joke. Then once when I was helping her after we got to 10 she totally surprised me by saying '11.' I didn't even know that she knew 11!!! I've tried to upload 10 times, but I'll keep trying...hopefully you'll see a video soon--it's been a while since you've seen her in action.

See...

See why I never put Quinn's hair in pig tails?? These had only been in for 2 hours....and look, they are crazy.


What have we done?

We didn't let Quinn watch TV until recently. Now that we let her--her favorite has become Elmo. We have all seen Elmo in Grouchland SO MANY TIMES. Here we are getting a break from that movie and letting her watch some Elmo clips online.

She caught me taking her picture....

Quinn can count!

I don't want to brag....but I'm going to. Quinn can COUNT TO FIVE!!!! No joke....if I say 'one,' she'll say 'two, three, four five.' haha....it's awesome. I tried to video it, but she just kept saying 'no.' of course...I'll keep trying because it's really pretty amazing.

I think you're a a little underage...

What the??.....

Some favs from November of '07

My hair appointment didn't show up tonight so I've been wasting time! I found these cute pictures from last November and thought I would show you my favorite...remember what a cute little baby Quinn was???!!!

This doesn't seem so out of place now...but if you remember how tiny her teeth were. :) She was really only eating cheerios at this point!



Sorry mom, I know you hate this one...but look how cute?? ha...and her tiny little teeth!!!

ok--this is NOT from last year, but look how sweet my haircut was...nice work, April.

Soft Blocks

For my baby boy...and yes, the ears and teeth are 3-d...how cute is that?

BOOKS!

Just my sweet girl doing what she loves best...looking at books! We've been under the weather for a few days, so sorry about the lack of posting (mostly sorry to my mom...since she's the one who noticed) :) But here is my happy girl back to herself....and i'm back to myself too, which i'm sure makes her happy as well.

Happy Halloween!

These were the ONLY pictures I took of Quinn's trick-or-treating experience...I don't know how that happened. Dave's work had trick-or-treating at the office, so we just went there during the day (let's face it....otherwise it would be past her bedtime) :) She liked it, although she was very shy. I think she was surprised that she got to keep the candy after we let her pick one.

It took a lot of persuasion to have her put the candy in her bucket...she was going to hold ALL of it. I'm sure she didn't think she was getting it back if she put it down.

I love the look on her face on this last one...haha..
