Couldn't wait for the pool to be opened

With all the rain we've been having, the drain in the pool deck has been a bit overwhelmed. Quinn took advantage of this fact yesterday, as seen in the following pictures.

Of course, what kid can resist touching dirty scudgy water!!

Or sitting in it!

And of course the jumping, although, that I don't mind at all.

And look at the joy!

Since he's broken

Since daddy is broken he can't go to work. So, we get to play with him!

Quinn's choice of course.


Jungle gym daddy.

And it ended something like this.

I leave you with Wesley!!!

So for those of you who don't know, on Friday Dan and Quinn were running around the yard and on his return trip Dan injured something in his ankle. It appears that he ruptured his Achilles tendon, but we will find out on Tuesday. Until then, here's Dan all wrapped up playing Wii with Quinn.


So now that I am done with school for the Summer (as of yesterday!) I'm working on spending more time with the boys. Especially outside time. So, here was our day yesterday.


Look at how hard he's grabbing his foot!

For some reason Quinn wasn't letting me take pictures of just him...

So this is the best I could do. He was trying to turn away from me so it's a bit blurry.

Nose to nose. Most of the time Quinn is lukewarm about Wesley, but then there are moments where Quinn will stare at Wes and spontaneously hug and kiss him. I have to try to get those as much as I can.

A little walk down memory lane

So I was digging out Quinn's nine month cloths for Wesley on Tuesday and I came across Quinn's first Halloween costume. He was so cute trying to put that thing back on. Needless to say, he was having a lot of trouble getting it to fit. So we put the hood on and I took a picture. We are going to pass this on to my older sisters baby when she is born.

But just for nostalgia I went back and looked at the old photos! Awww.

Quinn then proceeded to pull out his third Halloween costume.

So again, I grabbed an old photo. Look at how small.

We couldn't get the second costume because we borrowed that from his daycare teacher and he still wears the wolverine costume from this past Halloween so that one wasn't as exciting to put on.

Look at the feet in this photo and the next.

So as I mentioned, I pulled out Quinn's nine month cloths for Wesley. Yes, he is that big. Look at these thighs.

He is also getting much happier.

Not that he wasn't happy before, but now he smiles and giggles on a regular basis.

He loves to be thrown in the air and spun around and hung upside down. Funny boy.

So, in true second time mommy form, I am breaking some of the currently accepted rules. Not only does Wesley sleep on his tummy, he is already eating baby food. You should see him. This boy really likes food (note the picture below). He has eaten pears, sweet potatoes, carrots, apple, banana, and I didn't think this one through, but he has had a little bit of yogurt. Not much though, and I won't do that again until he's a year. I wasn't thinking about the milk aspect.

Give me more he says. Actually, I think it was get that camera out of my face.

And here are Mary and Quinn.
