I broke down and bought the iPhone last week.  What can I say, I LOVE IT!  It just has so many cool things!!  Fun things for Mommy and for Quinn!
On Thursday we set out for Virginia to see Grandma and family and decided to stop halfway because some little guy was super-cranky!! We were out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant next to our hotel and while we were waiting for our food I took out the phone to keep Quinn occupied.  He loves one app that Daddy found on his iPad called Doodle Buddy.  So I downloaded it too.  It lets him "draw" on the screen and has stamps that make noise, like a frog that ribbits, and as John found, one that makes a throw-up noise. Fantastic.  Here is one of his creations:
He grew tired of drawing so I turned on the front-facing camera and showed it to him.  He really wanted to be friends with the cute little guy looking back at him I think!

Quinn is a very picky eater.  He didn't use to be.  When he was eating baby food he would basically eat anything we put on a spoon.  Sadly though, those days are gone.  We have tried so many things for him. I've chopped & steamed veggies, grilled chicken, prepared little mini cheeseburgers-we even went to Chick-fil-a - all for nothing as each meal, to our dismay, ended up on the floor....or in Sally's tummy. 
We have learned to be very sneaky at hiding veggies in eggs (his FAVORITE food).  We go through a dozen a week!
The other night we ordered pizza from one of our favorite pizza places here in Charlotte, New York Pizza (Upstate Pizza is THE BEST in town, in case you were curious, but unfortunately no delivery).  So, I thought what the heck, I'm going to give him a piece.  After all, it has some of the things he loves, bread & cheese, so maybe, just maybe, he'll eat it. 
Low and behold, HE DID!!  He ate almost a whole slice! Now granted, he picked the pizza up, turned it over and ate it from the bottom, but as John said, "Hey, he's eating it!"  Yippee!!
Hmm...what is this?

OK, not so bad...

It's so yummy!!!
