So, life has been incredibly crazy, but we are loving it. I wouldn't trade being a mommy for anything-especially to a little boy as awesome as Quinton. Ok-so it's possible that I am a tad bit biased, but he really is an amazing kid.
I think Christmas was my last update and Quinton has changed so much! He has about 15 signs that he uses including mommy, night night, choo-choo, play, swing, and of course eat and more ;)
He is not quite walking or talking yet, but he is so close. He is babbling all the time, except of course for his speech therapist. He barely utters a peep for her.
His physical therapist, Sondra from One Step at a Time continues to do fantastic work with Quinton. We are talking about a little boy who could barely sit unassisted when he came home. Now he is climbing stairs, cruising and pulling up on anything and everything in sight. Nothing in his reach is safe anymore. He is taking steps just barely holding on to someone's fingers. It won't be long before he is walking. For now he prefers the booty scooty. He looks like a little gorilla when he moves, but man does he move fast!
Quinton turned 2 in February and he has been home almost 9 months now. It seems like he has been a part of our family forever, though.
Last week I was on spring break and dying to get away, but we were on a really tight budget, especially since the garage door broke. I was looking into something we could do for relatively cheap and we decided to take Quinton to Busch Gardens. We got in for free with our military ID's. It was our first family vacation together. It was only for 2 days, but it was so nice to get away.
Well, this was a post full of random updates, so I will leave you with some (very cute) random photos :)
These pictures are from Quinton's birthday party/baby dedication.
My mom did an amazing job on the cake!
This is our living room after we opened all of Quinton's birthday presents. What a blessed little boy :)
These pictures are from my friend Sarah's house. Quinton had a great time exploring and playing with the pig (Sarah has a real pet pig named Olive).
The last of these pictures are from our mini getaway to Williamsburg. Quinton loves cold air and sticks his tongue out whenever the wind is blowing.
The little clydes were hands down Quinton's favorite part.
Somehow this one got out of place, but Quinton is loving riding the choo-choo with his daddy :)
Not happy when the ride was over. This actually escalated into a full out cry. It was so cute!
So, when he asked for more (see him signing more?) We couldn't refuse.
I think he rode 4 times :)
Then he sadly waved bye bye to the little clydes and we headed home.
