She is two.

I’m breaking with the London/summer recap “series” to celebrate Quinn.  Today she turned two.  At 6:19 this morning technically, which it occurred to me is about her average wake-up time every day.  I love re-living that day.  Thinking about the indescribable excitement as we drove to the hospital, the immeasurable joy in seeing her for the first time and hearing Joe exclaim “it’s a girl!!”, to the sheer giddyness felt when introducing her to her grandparents.  Birth- days are extraordinary really.  And with every week, month, and year that passes the memory is that much sweeter.  Because your love for that little person grows infinitely.  And the days before they existed fade further into the background, making it even more important and meaningful to reflect on when they first arrived.  And life changed.  Forever.

From this:

sweet baby girl the day she was born

To this:

sassy pants in her new favorite shoes- which she can walk in by the way.

So today we celebrated Quinn.  Pretty much Quinn’s perfect day involves Elmo and ice cream.  Easy enough.  But we also took time to remember the day she was born.  And to tell her how much she is loved.

Sunday is the official paaaar-tay.  Wish us luck as we try to cram 20 some people into our less than overly accommodating family room.  Should be interesting.  And fun.  With a dose of toddler crazy thrown in for good measure!  Good times are sure to be had.  Pictures to come…

Sweet Quinn- we love you to the moon and back.  Happy Birthday.
