I just wanted to thank everyone for such supportive comments regarding my masters. I really couldn't have done it without the support from my mentor and the the professors at Wesleyan. They were so wonderful and understanding about my situation with Quinn.
OK, so back to my little prince Quinn. He has officially hit 13 lbs. Which apparently is great. Doctors want babies to double their birth weight by 6 months (which we've done) and triple their weight by a year. With 5lbs to go I think we can do that. I know I keep saying this but everyone is so happy with how he is doing. The nurse just couldn't get over how much he's grown/matured in a month. Also, the doctor that repaired Quinn's digestive system is so pleased with his last test that he discharged him. The doctor said if Quinn ends up having trouble later that we can go back to see him, but he doesn't think that will happen. Yay, one doctor down.
These next notes are more to remember for when Quinn gets older. He is still a terrible traveler. However he is finally learning how to sooth himself a little while traveling. In the past (by past I mean 2 weeks ago) once he started crying he screamed until we got where we were going. He loves the ABC's. He likes other songs, but I can actually sooth him with the ABC's when he's crying. Go figure. He put an object (other then my hand) in his mouth with the intention on teething on it for the first time today. It was one of the fish from his swing. Also, two nights ago was the first time I was able to put him in his pack n play before he was asleep and he didn't cry and wake up. He did it again last night too. He still wakes up every two hours to eat. He is a very sweet and happy baby. Now that his system is better at dealing with gas he rarely cries and is pretty easy baby. He loves his daddy and is all smiles for him when Dan gets home from work. Quinn watches him constantly when he's around.
He really likes the new walker we got for him. He only goes backwards at this point. It's really cute.
He likes books and his Aunties.
And of course Daddy............
Quinn saw his first parade on Monday.
It wasn't a great parade, but....
He seemed interested in it.
