Thanksgiving Fun!

What a fun first Thanksgiving for Quinton. Although he did not eat any turkey or mashed potatoes he did enjoy some squash, and some banana plum combo. What a lucky guy. We enjoyed our day with the Rude family and many other guests, some international students from Drake that didn't have a place to go for Thanksgiving. It was fun to celebrate with people who have never had thanksgiving before. I attempted to make a cheese ball but it turned into more of a cheese pile... it was not the best thing I had ever eaten! We enjoyed family time and football. Quinton is quite a popular guy among his extended family (both the Rudes and the Millers). He was held and played with and in very good spirits considering a terrible cough that he has been battling for a week now.

Quinton and his 16 month old cousin Eden playing together!

We took a video of Quinton playing with his cousin Eden and his dad. If you listen you should be able to hear him laugh. He was laughing so hard while playing with a ball and Eden.... Enjoy... sorry it's a little noisy with all the people around!

Warm Pajamas!!!

While Nana and Papa were visiting the bought Quinton some warm fuzzy new pajamas. He looks so stylish in stars! Quinn had quite a fun time with his grandparents. They played with him, fed him, changed him, bathed him, kissed him and didn't put him down for 2 1/2 days. You would think that they like him...
Quinton is not crawling yet but wants so badly to be on the move. There are bets that he will be crawling by Christmas although I am having a hard time believing that he will be... we will just have to wait and see. Hopefully Nana and Papa have a gate so that he doesn't tumble down the stairs.
These past couple of days Quinton has also discovered his tongue and it hangs out his mouth for all to see. It is pretty funny. He is also enjoying a wide variety of foods and the puffs that dissolve in his mouth... our little boy is growing up!

Gearing up for Winter

Quinton was trying out his new red hat the other day and I couldn't resist taking a slew of pictures! He looks so stylish in his vest and red hat... I think that he is better dressed than his parents.

Absolutely everything goes into his mouth these days. His Papa was very nice to bring him his own cell phone that he can chew on and drool all over because mom and dad's are off limits. He does not have any teeth yet but we are waiting for some to pop through.
Every day with Quinton is so much fun and we are learning new ways of being entertained inside now that the cold weather is upon us. We are looking forward to having Quinton around to celebrate his first Thanksgiving and Christmas. What a fun time of year!

Bath Time!

Quinton LOVES bath time. He plays in his little tub until his fingers and toes are all prunes. It is fun to watch him discover how to splash. Quinton still has no hair so I more or less shampoo his scalp and try to stimulate some hair growth (something I learned at cosmetology school)!

Just as handsome as ever!

About 20 minutes after Quinn got out of the bath he filled his diaper and covered his backside so it was back in the tub for round two. I think that he did that on purpose just so that he could have another bath!

It's Getting Colder...

We have officially entered winter. On Monday Quinton and I took a walk and both of us were in t-shirts. By Thursday this is what Quinn looked like on our walk....

I think that Quinton and I are going to become mall walkers this winter. Although the scenery is not as pretty and the air is not as fresh the exercise is still good for us and I'm sure Quinn will enjoy the Christmas decorations and all the lights. It's so strange to think that when the weather is nice again Quinn will be walking. I have a feeling that our walks will be a lot slower next spring when he's walking... maybe I will get him to push me around.
