"Well, that just made my day!" I heard that three times the other day when you treated absolutely everyone you saw with your special smile. And I couldn't have felt more proud of you Quinn.
No matter where we are, you don't let anyone get past you without a smile. And most of the time it stops people in their tracks and they can't help but come over and try to get another 1, 2 or 10 grins out of you. I hope you never lose that desire to make someone's day. It takes very little, but can mean so much.
You're 8 months old and once again have changed so much since my last post just two months ago. You are a pro at sitting up now and roll and scooch yourself backwards all over the place. You've started to get up on your hands and knees and rock back and forth and even attempted to pull yourself up onto things. Crawling and standing will definitely be a part of our next post.
I am not sure what you weight right now, but you are comfortably out of 6 month clothes and wearing 9 month and even some 9-12 month stuff. You started off slow, but you are catching up fast.
Just the other day I finally got rid of the bathtub support and decided it was time you sat in the tub without any help. I don't think I am moving you along as fast as I did your brother, partly because I don't want you to grow up any faster and partly because you seem so much smaller than he was. It's also probably a second child thing too.
You currently love cheese, bananas and yogurt. You also have yet to turn your nose up to anything I throw in the blender for you. We are still waiting on teeth but you still manage well with some finely chopped finger foods.
You were sick for the first time at the end of August and really scared your mom for a couple hours. A stomach bug hit you hard and it took us several hours to get you to keep any sort of liquid down. I was very worried about dehydration, but thankfully your dad thought to call the healthline and we were told exactly what to do.
Although you haven't said any words yet, you natter away all the time and can roll your Rs like no one's business. It's the curtest thing ever!
You continue to be my easy going sidekick and I can't thank you enough for making life so easy. You are happy to do what it takes to make sure your brother gets the attention he needs or when mommy needs just a little time to herself.
Speaking of your brother you continue to idolize him and he loves you to bits. He loves to play with you as long as he calls the shots on what toys you have, but you don't mind. I have even caught him sharing his beloved Paw Patrol or Cars toys with you. That's huge Quinn.
Quinn we couldn't feel more thankful that you are ours or thank you enough for making our day every day. You are exactly what we need, exactly when we need it. xoxoxo
