My big green eyes

I realize I've been really bad at writing about what Quinn is up to lately. I've really just been captioning photos. I will try to fix that with this post. Quinn still doesn't talk much. He says Da, ma, dat with pointing (in fact everything is dat. I want dat, what's dat? It's actually a very good all purpose word), and he says hot. That's kind of random, but interesting. If he hears something sizzle on the stove or he sees food smoking, he says hot and he'll blow on food if he can reach it. He sings ahhh into a mic. He does the hokey pokey, well left hand in left hand out and turn yourself about, but the turn yourself about is really cute. He blows kisses, but he keeps his hand in the shape of the sign language word for eat. Hmm, that reminds me; he signs eat, more, and all done, which seems to be all he feels he really needs in life right now. As long as he can eat what he wants when he wants it, life is good. He also shrugs his shoulders and makes the I don't know sound when you ask him something he doesn't know. He growls when he sees a picture of a large animal and mimics the intonation the cat makes when she meows as his way of saying cat. He knows; close/open, in/out, on/off, pick it up, give it to me, bring it too me. He actually understands just about everything we say to him, which is really nice. He has been cleaning up when I ask him to for a couple of months now. And of course daddy taught him high five and give me five. I think that's all that's new from the last couple of months. Oh and of course he shakes his head no.

Hmm, a sandwich with plastic around it. Who would do that?

My friend Andrea and I took our boys swimming at the URI pool yesterday. Dan found this awesome swim suit with a floaty built right into it at goodwill, $1 with the tags still on. It was awesome. Quinn can float in it. However, he preferred that I did not let him go while we were in the water .... unless he was distracted. That's how I found out the floaty would support him in the water :).

We also went to a Saint Patrick's day parade today which I know a lot of you went to. Sorry to everyone we didn't see. I find it really amusing that they have this huge parade so far after Saint Patrick's day.

Quinn kept waving at everyone. Here he is waving at a fire truck. The one right above this picture actually.

This is a terrible picture, I just wanted to show everyone that Quinn's eyes are still green.

I know all little kids love electronics. I don't know what it is about them, but...... Did I ever mention how much Quinn loves my laptop. Look at him. Even if he can barely touch the computer as long as he gets his fingertips on it, he'll find the strength to get it.

Happy Easter Everyone

This post is mostly about teeth. Quinn just cut six teeth pretty much all at the same time. He went from having just his two little bottom teeth to having teeth everywhere. It's so cute. I'm not sure if you'll be able to see them, but it's been a while since I posted, so, here they are.

What a flattering picture. Sorry Quinn.

Doing a bit of lounging with auntie.

You've got to love mom's fashion sense. Don't worry, I didn't let him out of the house looking like this.

OK, lots of love from our family to all of you.

Better now!!!!

Yay, so the little man is back to himself again. He lost about a pound which has put some of his doctors into a tizzy, but he'll get it back.

Quinn actually did this himself. Of course I took the bag away immediately ..... after taking pictures of course. And yes, I took the firecrackers away as well.

Ok, so just some update photos.

And pictures of our sick little boy.
Luckily he still fits in his swing. It's been the best way to comfort the poor kid. He's doing well and we still get rare smiles. But he's not eating much and you can tell he's uncomfortable. Hopefully this will pass quickly. Hope you're all well. Talk to you soon.

Mommy's first day back to work

So, this is what Quinn, Dan, and I did the day before I went back to work (i.e. yesterday).

We went to a play scape with Dan's family.

And oh what fun we had .... after the billion other screaming children left.

Although they didn't appreciate having to sit still for photo ops.

Mary seems to be the only one that realizes that someones taking a picture.

Alright, fine, you are released.

Even with all the fun, Quinn still craved the outdoors. Hehe, that a boy.

On a side note. Quinn continues to be a little man. We still haven't been able to turn the car seat around (one year/20lb requirement). Meaning he isn't even 20lbs yet, but we are close.

Quinn in a box.

Pop goes the Quinn Lee.
Quinn wanted to be like daddy, all wrapped in a blanket.

Below, Quinn Multi-tasking.

So my first day back to work went just fine. Dan's mom came and watched Quinn. She said they had the best day ever, which just makes me feel so good. My day was fine, it was just orientation so no stress there. So that's it. I'm back to work.
