Have a holly jolly Christmas…

Nothing says Christmas like getting your picture taken with Santa.  And who on earth is jollier than St. Nick?  So, it should stand to reason that pictures with Santa Claus should be a happy event.  One reflecting joy, and excitement towards the upcoming holiday.   Or this:     So that was fun.  So yes, […]

Birthday/ Halloween recap; in other words….October

You guys know me by now.  Always a day late and a dollar short.  Or months behind on blog updates.  Yup- it’s who I am, I own it.  Anyway, I wanted to just quickly post a few pics of Quinn’s birthday party and Halloween costume. On Quinn’s official birthday we opened presents in the morning. […]

Board books are sooo boring…

Like most kids her age, Quinn LOVES books.  In fact, “reading” by herself is one of the things she does to stay entertained while I make lunch or clean up around the house.  That and throwing things in the toilet.  You know, both equally entertaining. She often takes her books to a large floor cushion we […]

What's with the toilet obsession?

Um, Quinn seems to be quite fascinated with the toilet these days.  Which would be awesome- if it involved sitting on it and you know, actually using it for its intended purpose.  No, her interest lies in tossing in objects and then having me fetch them out.  Ewww.  Seriously Quinn?  In the last day alone, […]

Best. Shoes. Ever.

I’m not really a pink person.  I don’t think I own one article of pink clothing.  It was never even a thought to incorporate pink into my wedding colors.  I don’t get all giddy over shades of rose and bubble-gum hues.  BUT these are the best shoes ever.  Period. My parents gave these to Quinn […]

Defense…a letter from Quinn

In response to some of the bad publicity I’ve been getting lately (e.g. drawing on the walls and shredding the toilet paper; thanks Mom for going public with those) I wanted to submit my own version of things.  I am a delightful 16 month old who provides much joy on a daily basis.  Yes, I […]

Creating a monster…

One of the things Joe and I started doing to distract Quinn when she wants something she can’t have or just needs to be kept entertained for a minute to regroup and hopefully sidestep a potential meltdown, is showing her pictures/videos on the computer.  Initially it started out as showing her the montage I made […]

Give me the real deal…

Recently Quinn has entered the phase of “Don’t cut that up into baby size pieces for me.  Pah-lease!  Give me the the real deal.  The whole enchilada por favor.”  Here area couple pics of her dining “big girl style”. Somehow she looks so innocent doesn’t she??

Birthdays are also for celebrating…

    So yesterday was Quinn’s birthday.  All day Joe and I marveled at the fact that an entire year had gone by.  We looked at our daughter and said “she’s not a baby anymore”.  And then we had cake.  Kidding.  We opened presents.  And then we had cake. Our celebration was small and intimate…just […]
