Quinn is 6-Months-Old!!

I can not believe how quickly time has passed!! 6 months ago today our lives were changed forever! I can sometimes barely remember what life was like before he came along!! I count my lucky stars that we were blessed with such a happy and healthy little man!!

6 Fun Facts About Quinn

1. He is an early riser - and soo happy in the mornings! The reality of getting up at 6am (sometimes earlier) every day is made so much easier when I see that little smile looking up at me from the crib!

2. He sweats on his nose when he's hot just like his Mommy!! I think it's so funny that he got that from me! Sorry buddy!

3. Gnawing on his fingers is one of his favorite hobbies!

4. His hair is awesome! Each day he rocks a new and even cooler style!
First the mohawk and now the comb-over - can't wait to see what's next!!

5. Quinn LOVES TV, much to Daddy's dismay! He'll crane his head around no matter where he is in the living room to watch it!

6. He is quite the little flirt! Whenever we go anywhere and a woman says "Hi" to him he turns on the smile and the charm! He seems to smile more for blondes...hmm. I think we're going to have a problem ;-)

Nonna's Visit

Nonna came to visit for a whole week this past week! We had such a great time and Quinn loved spending time with her! We surprised her at the airport-we went inside and hid by the steps leading down to baggage claim and popped out when we saw her. She was surprised indeed!

While she was here Quinn got his first cold :-( Very sad to hear the little guy cough!! I'm so glad she was here though, to help me figure things out!! He's all better now!
We also continued on the solid food adventure and Nonna got to feed him while she was here! That was fun! He can't seem to figure out why the food is not continuous though and gets a bit frustrated if you don't hurry up with his next bite!

Quinn had such a good time reading, drooling and bouncing on Nonna! We were sad to see her go, but we'll see her again soon!!

Cutest Baby Ever!

I entered Quinn in America's Most Photogenic Babies contest a few weeks ago. John read about it and sent me the information and we had to enter!
There were 4 categories; Beautiful, Precious, Most Fashionable & Comical. You got to choose your categories after the photos were taken. I entered him in Comical & Precious with these pictures:

He got runner-up in both categories - obviously the judges were blind!! Oh well, we all know that he's the cutest baby ever! Here's a picture of Quinn with Nonna who has been visiting this week (which has been wonderful!) with one of his trophies! You can see the rest of his photos on our Shutterfly site:

My First Solid Food!

Tonight Quinn ate rice cereal for the first time. It was hilarious! He seemed to really like it, which wasn't a huge shock - the boy likes to eat!!
We've been putting it off because, well, breast milk is free!!! Also, I was in no rush for this next milestone-I wanted to keep him a "baby" for as long as I could! However, I have realized that I can't wait forever!
He didn't finish the bowl, but I am sure that will happen soon enough!!
In the end, it was a great success, as you can see!
