A mover and shaker

Quinn is much more animated these days and it was fun to see how much he'd changed just in the couple months since I saw him last. He is very content to lay on his back, especially if someone is talking to him - then he gets really excited and wiggles around like crazy. He's smiling a lot and reaching for his toes. Q seems to be particularly concerned with toning his arms and abs as he's quite fond of the Superman pose with his arms straight up in the air, and also of doing bicycles with his legs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6c_KPn0yW4

The Rudes were in Chicago this past weekend for a wedding and I was in town for our cousin's graduation party, so I got to spend some time with all of them. Quinn got to meet his great grandmother and second cousin, Rachel, among other relatives.
Q, Meg, and Grammy Abell:
Rachel was intrigued by "baby Quinn" and checked out Elmo on his diaper, shared her toys and books, and even tried to feed him his bottle:

Bumbo chair

Quinn got to borrow his cousin's Bumbo chair the other day to try it out. He's a little wobbly still, as you can see, but he sure looks like a happy boy!
"Okay, Mom, this was fun, but now I'm stuck!"
And a clean boy, too!
