Two teefers!

Quinn's second tooth has officially popped through! It might be silly for me to get so excited over teeth, but I can't help it! I love how big she is getting.

                                                   Daddy's girl

                                     too much fun at the State Fair!

I have officially started school and free time as I know it is gone! I will blog when I can. :-)

On Tuesday my dad, my nephew Tanner, and my niece Ava came up for a quick lunch visit. They will be starting school later this week and their younger sister, Ella, has already begun. Dad brought food from Culver's and while we were waiting Miss Ava wanted to do a quick photo shoot with Baby Quinn. She took several dozen photos of Quinn on her own! The kids are so sweet and we love them so much.

Fun game, Mommy!

So as the summer winds down, Quinn and I are finding ourselves a bit bored with her usual toys. One way that we have invented to entertain ourselves is something I call "Underwear Drawer." This may be too much information for some of you, but I think it's cute. :-)

I grab a huge bunch of underwear from a drawer or from a laundry basket if I am folding laundry. I set Quinn on her tummy facing the pile, just out of reach. She has to creep to get it, but once she does, watch out!

                                     rrrrrrooooolllllllll over into the undies!

                                          take a little breather

                  roll all the way down the hallway! how much can I hold onto?

I thought I would share a few pics of Quinn lately. I confess that I haven't been taking too many...we have been having too much fun reading books, playing, shopping, and enjoying summer! She recently got her first tooth, so that was a huge deal! We were relieved when it finally broke the surface because it relieved some extreme crabbiness.

                  helping Mommy cook supper. Love the crazy post-nap hair!
                                   we love legwarmers! (even in August)

See the kitchen table and chairs in the background of the above pictures? We are on a mission to find a new one! Ours is the perfect size for our kitchen and is in great condition but we are just looking to update a little bit. The one we have now was in my parents' house for as long as I can remember. We spent part of Saturday searching for the perfect is still eluding us. We did, though, find a new coffee table, end table, and foyer table! Woo-hoo!

We don't have carpet in our downstairs so during the day I lie down blankets on which Quinn can play. However, her latest trick is rolling herself up in the blankets! It is so funny to turn back around and see her in a completely different place from where she started. She's not crawling or sitting up, but she can definitely get some mileage rolling and creeping!

The end is near...

This week is my last week at home! It is going to be so hard to say goodbye to summer this year. This is the first summer ever where I haven't taken classes, worked, attended conferences, etc., so it has been pretty relaxing and fun just playing with Quinn! I will be sad to see it end; I'd love to stay home permanently, but I guess I better use my college education for something......

I am playing catch-up around my house today (laundry, dishes) because we had guests all weekend! More on that later.
