Mid-game my mom got a little chomp from Eleanor. That is right. The little girl's bottom two teeth were coming in (October 1, 2011)! I gotta tell ya, nothing cheers me up like that little grin with those to teeth. This month Eleanor had a lot of big changes. We introduced the her jumper.
Eleanor is also rolling all over the place. She adores her brother! She literally laughs at everything he does. Quinn can't get enough of her either. The other day he asked me to get her out of her crib so she could play after she had been napping for a long time. He constantly asks where she is when she isn't with us. He loves to rub her cheeks and say, "cheekers weekers". He made that one up himself. He also likes to imitate a Bernstein Bears New Baby book where baby bear pops brother bear in the nose. He will continuously take Eleanor's hand and make it pop him in the nose and then throw himself back dramatically. She loves it!
This month Quinn turned three!! He woke up to Balloons in his room, streamers in his door and a present at the bottom of the stairs (Lion King). He was so excited about this. In the morning I heard him yelling from the top of the stairs, "Mommy, mommy! There are balloons in my room. How did they get there?". He was so excited he ran right past his present. It was a great way to start off such a special day. I knew it was a true hit when I was tucking him in and he asked me to put balloons in his room again.
Of course there was a party! He got a Badger party as requested. Guests included his aunts, uncles and cousin along with his friend Carter and my cousin's daughter Kennedy and their families. We did deli sandwiches and a kick butt dessert table.
We also marked this new year in his life with a little photo shoot. I can't believe my baby boy is three!
