baby chair and me at 36 weeks

Quinn's old papasan chair...pretty girly

Still kinda girly...but not as bad?? I can't really come up with a good idea of how to cover that pink strap, and there is nothing I can do about the feet of the chair.

Quinn enjoying the chair even though she's too big

I think she was trying to show me that she fits in it afterall....

none of you can tell me I'm not a generous person....I am sharing a picture of me at 36 weeks. This might be the last public belly's getting too embarrassing :)

Quinn racing and pj's

I didn't get the laundry done on time tonight so we were all out of Quinn's warm pj's. She hasn't worn these that Grandma Marcia made her for a while, and she was SUPER excited to wear them tonight because they match the pj's her baby doll has. I'll try and get a picture of the two of them together tomorrow morning.

I wish this was a straight on shot of her happy face. She runs around saying 'I race you, I race you!!!' running as fast as she can. I try to explain to her that her mommy is too pregnant to 'race,' but she enjoys the running anyway.

Hap Hap Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Dainey!!! Hope you had a great day. How is it possible that this is the most recent picture I have of both of us??!! Love you--Happy B-day. This whole post is JUST FOR YOU :) (and mom....)

Quinn LOVES to color now. It's super cute. She'll color for a long time. She's worn out many crayons already.

She also is looking worn out! She also has gone through 3 coloring books--once she colors even a SPOT on a page she won't go back and color the rest later. So we have to encourage her to finish the whole page before we turn it for her. Coloring books aren't free, you know.

Here is Quinn sitting and doing some 'puzzles.' I just thought she looked cute sitting in the chair and playing.

And summer clothes. She is definitely getting an opinion about what to wear.

Here is Quinn singing along with the 'abc' song. I just love her bobbing head and that she can't quite keep up with the music.
Went to the park again today and this is the ONLY picture i took...I don't know what I was thinking. Notice she's not playing the equipment...we just 'walked around.' When we told her we were going to the park she said "no park" about 20 times..what 2 year old doesn't want to go to the park??!

Here are some things I sewed this weekend.

A new bag

A nursing cover.

I got to see the little baby boy today! My doctor decided to do a quick ultrasound to make sure everything was ok. I've been having a lot of pain in my belly that isn't contractions, so she wanted to see what was going on in there. He has a really hard bum that is really far up in my ribs. The last couple of times my doctor has felt my belly she can't decide if his head is up or down since his bum is so hard. It turns out his head is down--there is just no relief for my sore belly :)

No pressure...

So I know I've already put up like 5 videos of Quinn singing and playing her if you don't want to see another one, don't watch!!! Here she is first singing 'night, night, froggie.' (her own made up song...about putting one of her toys to sleep...) then singing the theme song to Sesame Street--which is very cute :) the real words are: Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away, on my way to where the air is sweet. As you can see, she gets awfully close!!

Day at the park

It is starting to warm up a little bit in Boise (sorry all you michiganders...I know it's like 20 degrees there today). We had a chance to go the park with daddy today--here are some cute pictures.

Quinn was actually not really in the mood to play on the playground equipment (despite what the smiling pictures show!)--she just wanted to 'walk around,' as she would say.

blast from the past

I was having fun looking through some old photos. I sure love this little girl!!

any of you finding yourself missing her short hair??!! I think I am :) Here's a better shot of it...


look at my big girl!!! remember when she could barely reach the sink on her kitchen?

Last year....

The camera was on a funny setting that I didn't know how to if she moved at all it did this: (but it was still a cute picture....)

Build a Bear

Leslie brought us a coupon for a free Build-a-bear, so we took the girls this afternoon. Quinn didn't even want the stuffed animal really, but was super excited about giving it a shower!!! (She likes the stuffed animal now--she just wasn't in the mood--and the store was PACKED)

hanging out at the mall after build-a-bear...I think she is thinking 'Paul, would you hurry and buy your pants already? geesh.'

Also--wearing her cute Valentine's outfit from Grandma and Grandpa Stevens!!

Valentine's Day!!!

Paul, Leslie, and Evie are here this weekend (Uncle Clint too). Here is a picture of the girls from this morning. I love how they each have BOTH hands on the microwave :)

We went to lunch today. Here is Quinn finally warming up to Aunt Krystal...just in time for her flight an hour later :)

I swear Dave was having fun at lunch...the picture just doesn't show it!

I know what you are ALL thinking!!!! 'wow, Amber, you hardly look pregnant!' JUST WAIT for the next picture!!!!

It's a good thing I can have a sense of humor about these things....this is a great shot of how I REALLY look!

And Clint was taking this he didn't make the blog--sorry Clint.


Quinn was pretending to nap on top of Krystal's was very cute.

She would squeeze her eyes shut REALLY tight.

I wanted to get a picture of Quinn in her Valentine's dress

She wasn't so excited about that idea :)

krystal and Quinn

I made Krystal this bag to take with her to the peace corp. Here she is modeling it for me....

Krystal has been here hanging out in Boise since my baby shower. Quinn is slowly warming up--but still won't let Krystal look at any of her books :)

Grandma and Grandpa Keller gave us this coffee table this week. Quinn has enjoyed using it as her new place to look through books.

Check out her cute pony lasted a couple of hours this time :)
