The Mighty Quinn

The Mighty Quinn is growing like a weed. He smiles all the time, (except for pictures) he giggles when tickled and has a whole new batch of nick names. Amelia calls him "Little Quinners" and tells me that "Baby Cakes is cryin'!" Riley calls him "Jiggly Puff" & "Magmortar" after 2 of his prized Pokemon cards. And Hans (in a high pitched voice) calls him "Quinny Quinny!"

I must admit I was worried that the Conrad & Riley would be ambivalent about Quinn's arrival and that Amelia would be jealous, but they are all madly in love with their littlest brother. So much so that when they come home with their friends they say to them, "Come look at Quinn. Isn't he so cute? Do you want to hold him. You can kiss him if you like." It warms my heart that they adore him as much as Hans & I do.

Great pictures. Bryce is particularly impressed with the last one, rightly so, WOW. So are you going to teach our photography class in May???

I love the name "Baby Cakes"

He was right, the fake sleeping nailed it ;)

Great, great pictures! I just reminded myself that haven't officially met the little man yet. Can't wait to sqeeze him!

Yes, we have been blessed with fluffy babies. Although, shortly after around 6 months, Conrad started to thin out. Amelia and Riley were always squeezable, until they started walking a lot.

I can't believe how much Conrad looks like you Monica. Your family is beautiful. I've had fun looking through your blog and "catching up".
