I drank a whole 4 oz bottle of apple juice today through a straw! I drank just like a big boy and didn't even make a big mess. Mommy was so proud of me. Also all that bran she has been feeding me seems to have kicked in. Going to the bathroom was a lot easier today. We got tons of snow and it fell all day long! I really hope Daddy can stay home tommorow. I am sure all my teachers will cancel!

Yesterday was lots of fun, I got to play with my Uncle Scott and Aunt Stacey. It was great.

Today was lots of fun too. I hung out with Mommy and Daddy all day! I picked up blocks out of a bowl and put them back in. My OT will be so proud! I also did a lot better at my sitting today. I didn't throw myself backwards at all and Mommy even let go of me a couple of times and I didn't fall right away! I may be sitting sooner than you think!

Today was Daddy's birthday, he is 30 years old! Happy Birthday, Daddy.

I had to go to the doctor to get another RSV shot today. The good part is I got weighed. Here are my stats:

Weight: 16 lbs 6 oz
Height: 27.25 inches

I am getting mighty big! The shot wasn't so bad. We had to wait there a long time so Mommy read me Green Eggs and Ham, I played with the paper, and we played peek-a-boo (my new favorite game). It was actually a pretty fun trip to the doctors! Then I went over to Grandma Jan's house while Mommy and Daddy went out to dinner. That was nice, lots of snuggling.

Today was a snow day! We got lots of white stuff and both my PT and Teacher canceled. Oh and Mommy had lots of fun without them! I decided that today was the day to talk and I babbled all day long. More than I ever had before. Mommy said that it was really great to hear me talking so much. Then at lunch I had Speghetti and Meatsauce for the first time. It was really yummy and there were even lots of big chunks in it...but it was kinda messy! And while I was having lunch my new Honeybear Cup came in the mail. It is a honeybear with a special straw in it. Mommy put a bunch of apple juice in it and I sucked it right up! I made a mess with that too, but got at least half of it down my throught :)

All in all it was a very succesful day!

Quinn with his Grandma and Grandpop! Posted by Hello

I had a very busy day today. My OT came over and we did lots of fun things like eating and playing. Then Grandma Donna and Gradpop Bill came over. That was lots of fun. We played and cuddled and Grandpop made me smile a ton as usual. It was a really nice treat for the end of a long day. Plus, they brought me a really cool pair of cave socks with lots of bats on them. And earlier today I got a postcard in the mail with a picture of the cave they were in. Caves are cool.

The really big thing I did today was that I took a bath and didn't cry! Mommy put me in this new sitting up holder thing and I really liked that. I played in the water and everything!

Sunday, February 20, 2005

I am 10 months old today! I am getting to be a really big boy. I did a little better with my sitting today, it wasn't too bad. We all just hung around the house today. We watched King Arthur, I want to be a knight when I grow up, it looked fun.

Mommy made reservations for us to go to the beach this summer. I am so excited, we are going to Ocean City and were gonna stay right on the ocean! Mommy and me are gonna play in the sand while Daddy goes in the water. I can't wait to experience all the new beach stuff!

Friday, February 18, 2005

Me and Daddy got to hang out almost all day today and that was great. He is so much fun! Mommy got some new tips on helping me sit from her friends she tried out a couple today. Doesn't she get it? I just don't want to sit!

We went out to Longhorn Steakhouse for dinner we do every friday. This time they sat me right under a big Longhorn's skull though. That was so cool, I stared at it all through dinner..then I fell asleep.

Today was a pretty good day. I woke up kinda late so Mommy made me eat a really big breakfast (cause it was really lunch time). Portia and I figured out that if I hang my hand over the side of my new highchair and she stands on her back feet, she can lick my hand! This way she doesn't even have to wait until I am done eating to lick me. Too bad she isn't taller, she could get my face, that is where the really good stuff is.

We took it easy most of the day cause Lindalee came over around 4. She had me bouncing on a ball and reaching out at the same time. She said I was doing really good. Apparently it is very good exercise, she said it was basically Baby Pilates. Mommy says all the Hollywood actresses do Pilates, fancy!

Wednesday, February 16, 2005

Today the OT was supposed to come over, but she cancelled at the last minute! Oh well, her loss that she didn't get to play with me. Me and Mommy worked on my OT skills instead. We played with my leapfrog table and I made it make lots of music. Then I played with my Sesame Street pop up toy. I can now do Elmo and Ernie by myself! I wish Mommy would stop pushing them down again, I really like to grab them when they are popped up. Tommorow Lindalee the PT is coming to see me, not much else going on.

Cutie! Posted by Hello
Today was great, as usual! Mommy and me hung out and had a lot of fun with some real good snuggle time. Then Lindalee came over and played with me for a while. She bounced me on a ball and made me kneel for a really long time. I didn't mind too much cause I got to play with my toys while I kneeled. Daddy got home in time to feed me which was great. Then we cuddled a little and I fell asleep. birthday party has been changed to APRIL 16th! That's cause we are Jewish, and apparently some Jews have better things to do on Passover than come to my party! Just messing with you Uncle Ian and Ben! Have fun in Pittsburg and eat a matzo ball for me! But you better get me something really good for my birthday like a paper towel or empty water bottle!

Quinn giving his mommy a big smile! Posted by Hello
Happy Valentine's Day to all the women I love out there...especially the Grandmas!

Today it was just me, Mommy, and Portia again. We had fun. We practiced sitting, kneeling, all that good stuff. I am getting pretty good at propping on my hands instead of my elbows. I played a lot with that jingley ball that my teacher left with me. And we got to watch the first episode ever of Gilmore Girls! Mommy had never seen it before and she was very excited. My formula was delivered today too. And I got to stay up long enough to cuddle with Daddy, Yay!

Sunday, February 13, 2005

Yesterday was lots of fun. I got to go to Grandma Jan's, she gave me even more Valentines gifts, a Elmo book about love and a heart shaped Mr. Whoozit. I loved them both! Then Grandpa Don took me for a walk around the block. It was great.

Today I spent most the day with Daddy. It was great too. We played and he sang to me. We watched dorky shows together. The usual Daddy stuff. Not much going on tommorow, probably more practice sitting!

Friday, February 11, 2005

Mommy and me went shopping today. It was fun, but a little too windy for my taste. Mommy didn't get me anything...just stuff for her :( Daddy came home kindof early today so he got to feed me! I love Daddy so much! Then we all went out to dinner. I like the place we went cause there are lots of stuffed animals and the waiters sing when it is someones birthday....and it is always someones birthday!

Tommorow I get to go see Grandma Jan and Grandpop Don. Sounds like fun! I hope it is nice enough out to go for a walk.

My new teacher Norma came to see me again today. It was lots of fun and she made me smile lots. She tried to teach me how to lift my arms up to be picked up and I have almost got it! She also brought a big mirror for me to look at myself in. It is really cool, and I am one cute baby! Lindalee (the PT) was supposed to come over today too, but she was sick. I hope she gets better soon! So since she couldn't come Mommy called Grandma Jan and invited her to come over. Yay! Good thinking Mommy! We played and she sang and she tried to teach my mommy how to knit the right way. Mommy likes her own way better though. It was a really good day!

Wednesday, February 09, 2005

Daddy came home today! Yay! I missed him, but not as much as Portia did!

Not much happend besides that today. I woke up late and because of that I am gonna miss dinner. Oh well, I will make up for it tommorow. was a pretty boring day actually. That is alright tommorow both my teacher and my PT are coming over so I probably needed to save my strength. I am excited that so many people are gonna come over to play with me tommorow.

I had a really fun day. I couldn't stop smiling! I did miss my daddy though. I played on the floor and rolled over to get my Touch and Crawl Pooh. Then me and mommy read a book on my Leap Pad. Then the mail came and I got a card from Grandma Jan for Valentines Day. I really liked it and it had glitter all over it. Now I have glitter all over me! Mommy, Daddy, and Portia all got Valentines cards from Grandma too; Portia's had treats in it, but Mommy and Daddy's only had some funky green paper in it. Mommy seemed pretty happy about that though. She said maybe next year my card will have a treat too. Of course Pooh was my Valentines present, so that is kinda a treat.

Quinn and Grandma Donna reading! Posted by Hello
Today was a really good day! First we heard from Dr. Crawford that there is nothing wrong with my belly! It is just a bunch of gas...and anyone who has ever been in the same room as me knows that I have issues with gas! So I don't see why we needed to get a picture taken of my belly...but I am glad it is all over.

Then Grandma Donna came over and we played and read and she played see-saw with me. It was lots of fun and I was really glad I got to see her, I really missed her!

The only bad part about today was Daddy never came home from work. Mommy said that he had to go away on a business trip and will be home on Wednesday. I am really gonna miss the big guy!

Sunday, February 06, 2005

Today we watched the Superbowl! It was really interesting, I think I am going to like football. It would have been better if the Ravens were playing. I got a new highchair today, this one isn't nearly as nice as the one Great Grandma Berta bought me, but I can reach the tray. Mommy says that is important cause pretty soon I am going to have to start feeding myself.

Mommy also told me that my birthday party is almost definately going to be on April 23rd. It is gonna be big and the whole family is gonna be invited!!!! Yay! So mark your calenders and save the date!!

Sorry I missed updating yesterday! We had a long day. We went to see Pat Winders and she said I was doing really good. I had lots of fun playing with her too! Then we went out to dinner and to Target, it was a real fun day.

Today I went over to Grandma Jan's house. It was lots of fun. We played a lot and she made me laugh! Then Grandpop Don took me for a walk around the neighborhood which I just love! It was really nice out today so it wasn't even that cold! Then they fed me and I did really good with my biter biscuit. I like to chew on it and then bang it on the tray, fun!

Thursday, February 03, 2005

Mommy and me went to Annapolis today to get a picture taken of my belly. Knowing me there isn't a real problem, probably just gas! The best part was that I got to go see Grandpop Bill afterwards. He is so funny, he always makes me laugh! I wish I could have spent all day with him. I do want to thank Grandma Donna for setting up the house for me. I loved rolling on the blanket and playing with the dolls she put out for me. Kermit the frog was the best. I liked how his arms would wrap around me and his big eyes.

Tommorow Daddy stays home and we are all going to go see Pat Winders. I miss Pat, I haven't gotten to see her for 2 whole months! I hope she is impressed with my almost sitting skills!

Wednesday, February 02, 2005

My new OT came over today, I remember her, she was nice. She played with my mouth a bunch and gave Mommy some good ideas on how to help me drink and eat better. Not much else happened today. I had a really big poop thanks to that Karo Syrup. I fell asleep before Daddy got home, but I woke myself back up cause I missed him so much. I fell back asleep after we cuddled for a few minutes. I had a rough day cause Portia barked and woke me up in the middle of my very important afternoon nap! Bad Dog!

Quinn on his exercise ball! Posted by Hello
Today was fun. Lindalee came over and she brought a big green exercise ball with her. It was really cool and lots of fun. Mommy said she might get me one so I can play on it all the time. Besides that we worked on sitting up and Lindalee said I am doing really well. Mommy and me had a lot of cuddling time and then Daddy came home. He is one funny guy, and I love to rub my hands on his chin! Tommorow a new OT comes, but she has been here before when I was much younger. She is going to help me drink better.
