I tried to teach Quinn how to wink. As you can see, he doesn't realize he should only shut one eye!
He's definitely got a curious side. Quinn wants to know what things are and is very eager to explore and check things out.
He has a sense of humor. He loves to laugh and can even make others laugh. Over the summer, he realized that he can "blow zerberts" on my tummy like I do on his, and this sends him into fits of giggles.
Ok, this one is just for cuteness. We were trying to get him to put the shell up to his ear, but he wanted to smell it instead.
He loves to play peek-a-boo, or any other game that helps him interact with others.
Since I am not in a position to be a full-time, stay at home mom, I am thankful for a job as a teacher, which enables me to be able to be home with Quinn more often than if I had a job in the business world. What other job gives you approximately two months off in the summer, as well as extended times off at Christmas and in the spring, along with various days off here and there. Without these break times, I would miss out on so much.
Like the other morning when he signed "more" and "please" during breakfast. Or when he folded his hands to pray when I gave him his food. Or hearing him tell our dog "no no" when Tillman tried to beg from Quinn.
So for now, we are just cruising along, enjoying the last weekend of summer. I can't wait to see what he learns at school this year.
I can't promise you there won't be tears on Sunday night, or even Monday morning when I drop him off at daycare. I can't promise you there won't be times when I will dread going to work and just wishing I could stay home every day. But I can promise you that I will never, ever regret being Mommy to this sweet little gift that the Lord has entrusted me with. I am so blessed to have this child in my life, and I can hardly wait to see what he will grow up to be!
