Speaking of joy. Quinn, you are it. Joy. You are ALWAYS happy. You are so content to just be. Don't get me wrong. You have your moments and you know how to let us know when you are hungry or tired. But for the most part, you are easy and chill.
We started you on solids at about 5 1/2 months with the hope that it would help with your puking. Well no dice. You still puke. And it's even grosser if that is possible. Thank goodness you are so stinkin' cute because you are quite disgusting at times. You definitely like to eat. So far you haven't met a puree you didn't like. Your table manners leave a bit to be desired, but we can work on that.
At your 6 month check up you were an even 16 lbs (more than 5 pounds less than your brother at this age) and 29 inches tall. Our doctor said you were totally healthy and assured me once again that the puking would soon stop. Any time would be great Missy.
You finally experienced your first time in a swing. You were pretty indifferent about it and still really small for the seat. We also got you swimming again at the Mihalicz family reunion and you loved it! I think you would still be floating quite happily in the pool if I let you. You even seemed to have a little frog kick perfected.
Sadly you seem to be transitioning out of being rocked to sleep and I am not sure I am ready for it. Sometimes I will just put you down in your crib for naps and within about 10 minutes you have soothed your self to sleep. Other times you humour me and let me cuddle for a few minutes even though you don't seem that comfortable in my arms. You will eventually fall asleep but sometimes I wonder if you are faking just for my sake because as soon as I put you down in your crib your eyes pop open and you wind up putting yourself to sleep anyway.
You LOVE your brother and the two of you natter back and forth all the time. Pretty much anything he does, funny or not, makes you laugh. You're good for his little ego.
Quinn I can't begin to tell you how much you are loved. One look at you and everything just seems perfect. Thank you making us complete.
