Quinn is ONE!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, QUINN!

I returned from another trip out to see the kids this week. It was so fun to see them again, and they are growing up so quickly. This trip was extra special as Quinn celebrated his 1st Birthday on February 17th! Although I haven't been around Quinn nearly as much as I would have liked, it has been so rewarding for me the last few visits to really begin to feel a stronger bond with him and know that he actually knows who his Daddy is too. Quinn is such a sweet spirit, so good-natured, and an absolute joy to be around. He is inquisitive, loves "gadgets" like phones and buttons, loves climbing stairs (and often tries to jump off of the last stair), loves his big sister Aryn, loves being outside and eating snow, and warms up to about anyone. He has struggled at times with ear infections, his laryngomalacia, and reflux, but he has handled it for the most part with great strength and always maintained his smile and peaceable character. He got tubes in his ears last month which have helped his ear infections, and it looks like his laryngomalacia is finally starting to gradually subside as well. In fact, Sara reports that he actually slept entirely through the night last week (which had not really happened yet). So, here's to a healthy and happy second year, Quinn! I LOVE YOU!

Happy Birthday, Quinn! I love the cake pictures--he dug it! And he looks so much like Aryn to me. And he looks like you in the picture on the horse. Super cute. Thanks for posting!

He's such a cute little man already. Elios looks to him to see what to expect in a few months. I'll tell him to expect adorableness.
