Happy 1/2 Birthday Sweet Baby Girl!

Time is flying this time around.  I thought Kellen's 1st year went fast, but I don't think it was this fast.  It doesn't help that she is a BUSY baby!  We would laugh we I was pregnant that she was so busy and constantly moving...well she is the same now!  Here is what she has been up to...

Quinn vs. Kellen @ 6 Months
  •  At her 6 month check up she weighed in at 19 lbs 2 oz and measured at 28 inches tall (off the charts).  She is pretty tall!  The Dr said she is perfect!  :)  She is wearing mostly 9 month clothing, but can fit a few 6 month things and a few 12 month things!  She is still wearing a size 1 shoe.  She still has all of her hair and it is getting so long and curly!  I love it!  :o) It is the perfect hair for bows!  

  •  She is still eating roughly every 3 hours and will have 4-5 bottles a day.  I have tried to change this, but she isn't having it!  She is still getting mostly mommy milk (yay me for pumping for 6 months), but I have to supplement every now and then!  She is loving her cereal & fruit or veggie at night!  She is now getting a whole jar of food and a little bit of cereal!  I think we are going to start some morning food and try to meats!  We will see how that goes!  

  • This month she has totally taken off!  I mean that literally!  Ha!  As soon as she learned to roll over she has been all over the place and then it soon turned into Army crawling!  We have had to put out gates back up to contain her a little!  She no longer loves the jump-a-roo because she knows that I am putting her in there to contain her!  Ha!  When she sets her sights on something she has the most determined look on her face as she crawls for it!  She has started to get on her hands and knees and will rock back and forth a bit, but hasn't got it quite figured out yet!  She keeps this mommy busy!  Nothing and I mean nothing is safe!  She is slowly mastering sitting up, but she really does not enjoy sitting still...she would rather be on the move!  :o)

  • She is such a happy girl!  We think there is a tooth coming, because she has been a little fussier than normal, but really she is happy (unless hungry or tired)!   We are in a really good schedule right now.  She is taking 2 naps that will last anywhere from 1-3 hours at 10 & 2ish (sometimes a 3rd is thrown in there if both naps are short).  She usually goes to bed between 7 - 7:30 and will sleep till 6ish, she will take a bottle and then go back down for an hour or two.  She really is an easy and good baby!  :o)

  • Her smile can still melt my heart and make Daddy want to give her anything!  We have decided she is going to be trouble as she gets older!  Kellen was an observer as a baby and would sit back and watch everything around him totally curious about the world.   Quinn watches your every movement and then wants to jump in the middle of it!  I have already decided that she is going to be a leader and she is destined for great things!  :o)  

  •  She LOVES her brother.  He can do NO wrong!!!  Where ever he is she wants to be to.  Kellen LOVES her too (too much sometimes)!!!  He wants to hold her and feed her, but she is way to wiggly!  :o)  I hope that they keep that bond forever!  :o) I know that he will protect her from any of the trouble that I know she will find!  :o)

  • She had a few 1st over the last month....She went on her first trip that included going on an airplane!  Lets just say we won't be flying again anytime soon!  ha!  She went on her 1st tractor ride and loved it so much she fell asleep!  :o)  Other than the plane part of the trip she was amazing!  She adapted really well to the time change and was a trooper!  She got to meet so many people and gave out so many smiles and put up with MANY different people holding her!!!  And it was unanimous that everyone wants to keep her!  Now if only we could get to MT and not have to fly or drive for 4 days!  Ha!  :o)  

Dear Quinn Luree

You have been an absolute joy.  You are the perfect addition to our family.  You are strong willed and determined and mommy loves every moment with you!  You LOVE your big brother no matter what he does to you!  :o) Your smile can warm any room and you are usually quick to give one!  I know that even when I walk into your room in the dark you are smiling at me...I can feel it and hear your excitement!  It is one of those smiles that even if your mouth is hidden you can see it in your eyes!  I hope that you always keep that smile. You are keeping mommy & daddy on our toes!  You are busy and want to be in the middle of everything!  I think if you could figure it out you would stand up and run with the big kids.  We love you so much!  We have so many hopes and dreams for you, but the biggest is that you will keep your determination in life to go after what ever you want.  We hope that you will always be quick to smile.  We hope that you will always love your brother just as much as you do today.  We also hope that he will adore you as much as he does today!

Love Mommy
