8 Months


How can our little love bug be 8 months old? You are growing so fast and everyday brings something new and wonderful!

You have teeth! Your two bottom teeth came in within a week of each other and you took it like a champ! Now you have at least three more coming in and you can tell your gums are bothering you but you seem to be taking it in stride.

You are ON. THE. GO.!! Soon after you starting crawling (boy can you move fast!!) we knew we needed to establish some boundaries. So, your Daddy got creative and introduced:



It keeps you contained and uninjured for the most part but now you have started scaling the walls…so I’m sure a new plan will be in place soon.

You went swimming for the first time! You love taking baths so we were pretty sure you would love the water and you do!

First was in your crab pool where you even loved the water spout!



Soon you moved on to bigger and better things when Grana and DT took you swimming in GAT’s pool!




DT loved to make you swim to Ducky!

You love to talk and still make your oooo sound. Your Daddy’s afraid he’s going to have another talker on his hands! You love to say HiiiiIIIii!

New foods you have tried are turkey with sweet potatoes, plums grapes and bananas, mixed veggies, apples with cherries and yogurt drops.

Your poor baby feet!! You still have the worst blisters! We try the best we can but you move your feet constantly and there seems to be nothing we can do.

You spent your first July 4th and GAT and GUR’s fish fry and slept right through the fireworks and the dogs constant barking.

And you were there in style

You’re the firecracker that lights up our lives and we love you to the moon and back!

7 Months

SAM_0863 The most fun thing this month is you starting crawling! You’re Daddy and I have not rested since:) You have been rocking and scooting for awhile but you took off this last month and you haven’t stopped since!








Soon after you also started pulling up on everything and Daddy had to start baby proofing stat!


Sampson has come to the realization his life will never be the same:)


You have also started clapping and waving hi which you love to entertain us with! DT really practiced that waving with you!

You are so sweet and have an adorable personality! You love to make oooo sounds: when you see something pretty, when Daddy opens the blinds in the morning, when you see a toy you like, when you’re watching cartoons, when you talk to Tay Tay, or when you see water fountains…

You still love to eat your cereal. You have tried several different foods.

You love: sweet potatoes, green beans, carrots, apples, and pears.

You did not care for: squash or peaches.

You HATE: peas

You love going to see Mrs. Lela and Emma everyday and even though you sometimes fight a nap they love seeing you too!
Daddy and I are counting down the days till summer and can’t wait to spend them with you!

6 months

Our little love bug…growing so fast!


Stats…Weight: 16 lbs 7 oz

Height: 27 in

Head: 16.8 in

You got an A+ on your exam, but your poor feet! You have the most sensitive skin and have horrible blisters between you toes and on the backs of your heels. You’ll be good but one car ride to Grana and DT’s house and you’ve kicked a new huge blister:(

You are a hoot! You still love eating your cereal and we got the go ahead and you started baby food. We started with sweet potatoes and you LOVED them!



Well…it took a few days but now you love them:)

We tried to take your picture in bluebonnets…but you were too busy watching the cars drive by.

Here they come…


There they go…


We love you so much! You have such a precious personality! You love to play peek a boo and have started holding things in front of your face and pulling them down and laughing. You are also sleeping like a good girl! Those nights of sleeplessness seem to be long gone!

5 Months


Sweet Quinn, oh how we love you! 


I can’t believe you’re 5 months old. You have been such a joy! You are getting the cutest little personality and we love your smile and your new giggle:) You still love your bath so much and even don’t mind when I squeeze water over your head (just getting you ready for the pool this summer). We think you are so close to crawling! Right now you just roll everywhere and stop when you hit some big piece of furniture. You raise up and do your mini push ups and just turn yourself in a circle. You LOVE your jumper! Daddy and I find that’s the only way we can get things done! You’re our little lovie!

Starting to think cereal is pretty good!

First Cereal

A couple of weeks ago we got the go ahead to start cereal…not such a big fan! But it’s getting better and Quinn is eating it more and more. If there was a camera in our dining room we would probably win America’s Funniest Home Videos prize! By that time of night Quinn starts to get very tired and to make it through cereal some nights I’m singing, Shane’s making noises and acting stupid:) geez she knows how to work us!

4 Months

Weight: 14 lbs 10 oz

Height: 25 in

Head: 16.5 in - and your doctor said your head shape is getting better:)


Quinn, You are such a sweet, sweet baby! You have been a pretty good sleeper, usually only waking up once about 2:30. We feed you and then you go right back to sleep. You are still loving to go to Mrs. Lela’s! You still HATE riding in your car seat. Most times you just cry, cry and eventually (if we’re lucky) fall asleep. You have been rolling over from your belly to your back for a while but you now have started rolling from your back to your belly. You did it for the first time at Grana and DT’s house and your Daddy and I couldn’t believe we missed it! You got a jumper for Christmas and you LOVE it!! I’m afraid you might get bouncing baby syndrome! You love your baths still and kick and squeal every night! You got your first cold and we had to spray solution up your nose and suction it and you are defiantly not of fan! You love to smile, laugh, and squeal. We think your pretty funny!!

You are a little TV-aholic! I think you would watch it all day if you could. You love to sit and watch football with your Daddy!


Your first Super Bowl and Tay Tay’s and Ton Ton’s house


You went to your first birthday party. Your friend, Tyler, turned 2! You had lots of fun and it just wiped you out!


family tummy time


We love you so much you sweet little thing! We can’t believe how much you’ve grown!












First Christmas

Quinn had a great first Christmas and it snowed!


Your first “girls” picture under the tree!


We had a great time Christmas Eve at Grana and DT’s house. You got lots of fun presents and wanted to stay up to play our annual game of chicken foot but you just couldn’t make it.



Then to top it all of Grandma Darla, Tom and Cody came to visit and you were spoiled even more!

3 Months

Holy cow...well back on January 12 th Q turned 3 months! We can't believe how fast she's growing. Here are some highlights:
*Sleeping really good-most nights you wake up around 2 or 3 but after you eat you go right back to sleep
*You've started sleeping in your crib instead of in your rock and play. You've done really well! Daddy and I can't believe what a good girl you are!
*You got a visit from your Grandma Darla
*You had your first Christmas and your first snow all in one day
*Your first day of daycare:( I loved staying home with you sweet girl but had to go back to work after 3 (mostly) wonderful months with you at home. I felt so blessed to have that time with you and CRIED when I had to leave you, but we LOVE Mrs Lela who keeps you and you love her too!

You were wiped out after your first day of visiting Mrs. Lela!

Such a happy girl! Your first Christmas Eve at Grana and DT's house

Tyler came to visit and brought her mom, dad, and Honey. We had fun getting to meet them. Tyler loved to hold you and know you will love and look up to Tyler the same way we did to her Mommy, Kyla! We thought she was the coolest person on the planet (still is:) and we love her so much!

Taking a snooze with Sampson. He always tries to lay beside you but you usually kick him (poor guy) and he moves over. You were finally still and he cuddled up to you!

Such a big girl in your bumbo!
