Quinn : 7 months

s e v e n m o n t h s
Quinn you are growing up so much. This was such a big month and I was nervous about starting a new routine because the one we had worked so well! But, I put my anxieties aside and we started feeding you real food on the 11th, no mushed up food, you eat what we eat (also known as baby led weaning). Watching you explore food has been so fun and makes Mom and Dad eat healthier. 
You are sitting up so well, it’s kind of nice we don’t have to hold you when you want to sit anymore. Especially in your bathtub, you love to sit so you can splash and grab your toys! 
We took your dockatot away on the 19th and you have done really well in your crib, scared us right away when you slept on your stomach but thanks to your owlet we knew you were breathing. Your naps at daycare are horrible, 30 min is your max nap these days but on the weekends you’ll nap for 90 min, you just can’t miss out on the fun at daycare I guess. 
You are not used to the night time routine without me, it’s just not the same, Dad says that will change when he is done with harvest! 
Nov 2nd I woke up to you crying and you’d spit up and rolled all over in it, now with food this smells a lot less like sour milk - you were fine and went right back to sleep when dry. 
You had shots on the 17th and weighed 15lbs (14lbs 15.5 oz if you want to get technical) and were 25.5inches tall. 
You love to ‘sing’ to the radio on our way to work in the mornings; it’s the best!! You celebrated your first Halloween as a Gnome, in a costume that Auntie Eri made for you and booties I bought in Norway. 
It was a good month and I have a feeling there will be a lot more mobility in month 7. Love you sweet gremlin

Nicknames: gremlin, Quinn Babe, munchkin, chunky chicken

Quinn : 6 months

s i x m o n t h s
Quinn you've been with us for 1/2 a year and I'm trying not to cry. The time with you has been amazing and flown by WAY TOO FAST.
You are a master at rolling and want to crawl but haven't figured it out yet, so instead you move in circles on your stomach and roll to get where you want to go!
You've been moved to the pack & play at daycare for naps and are starting to only take 1/2 hour naps, thankfully it doesn't hurt your nighttime sleep where you get 10.5-11 hrs!! Your hair is starting to come back in and growing over one of your ears, it's the cutest thing. You are a Drool Machine but still no sign of those teeth! You can sit up pretty well on your own & try to get there on your own but instead get a great ab workout!! Lots of firsts this week: wedding, hotel stay, 2.5 hr car trip, MNF game (on TV), daddy daycare day, picking apples, and helped mom with a senior photoshoot.
Giggling and Babbling are some of our favorite sounds from you, you weigh a little over 15 lbs and we are so blessed by you in our lives!!

Loves: standing, rolling, her tongue, watching TV, chewing her thumb, grabbing her feet, playing peek-a-boo, Tags
Hates: waiting to eat, being overtired
Nicknames: gremlin, miss Quinn, chunky chicken, Quinn babe
Skills: rolling champ, sleeping through the night (again 👏🏼), sitting on her own

Quinn : 5 months

f i v e m o n t h s:
Quinn you have started talking up a storm. Mainly it is a tactic to keep yourself awake, I think, but either way, it's adorable listening to you try and make words haha.
This month flew by much like the rest. You had 4 month shots on the 15th and did great. Also at that time you weighed in at 13lb 4.5oz.
You went to your first birthday party for cousin Kaylee on the 20th and loved playing with her birthday crown.
You helped mom serve supper to the 4-H kids at the county fair - everyone loved our wildbird sling. You enjoy watching the cows in the yard with dad, and would crawl in there with them if you could.
We have successfully dropped your swaddle and rolling over from your back to stomach was your big accomplishment this month - it's now one of your favorite things. Dad and I can't set you down thinking you'll stay put anymore 🙈
You hung out with mom at work this afternoon and did so good - a great Anniversary present!!
Your smiles get sweeter by the day and we adore you so much, even if you don't sleep through the night anymore!! 

Loves: rolling over, her tongue, LeRoy the Lion, petting Ember & Daisy, watching sports with dad, chewing on your thumb (hope she's not a thumb sucker)

Hates: waiting to eat, being overtired

Nicknames: gremlin, Quinn Babe, munchkin, chunky chicken

Skills: Rolling, sitting up (for longer periods of time before falling over)
