365 days since our life changed


It was one year ago today that you came into our lives, and we have loved every minute.

Here's a look back at how your BIRTH day started:

Getting ready to leave the house for the induction

Solon records a message for QB before my c-section

Look how tiny he was!

Day One

3 months

6 months

9 months


At 1-year-old:
LOVES: dancing, singing "na na na", any type of ball, taking everything out of the recycle bin and putting it in the trash
DOESN'T LIKE: anything green to eat, or currently any vegetable for that matter.
LAUGHS: Loudly - when we laugh, when we get from his crib, whenever... he thinks he is so funny.
CRIES: Whenever I try to give him food he doesn't want, OR if I don't give him the food he wants, when he wants it.
SLEEPS: from 7pm to 6:30am, naps from 9am - 10:30am, and again from 2pm - 4pm
EATS: 3 sippy cups of 7 oz.of whole milk ; for breakfast he likes chunks of banana or pears and his dry cereal, anything he can feed himself, and that has a crunch to it (Kix, Rice Chex, Cheerios); for lunch, he still loves yogurt, and grilled cheese mini sandwiches; for dinner he either has baby cereal with fruit, or whatever Gerber meat & fruit jar I feed him. He is still pretty picky, but is getting better.
TEETH TO DATE: Four (two on top, two on bottom), and four more about to break through the gums
FIRSTS: He took his first steps about a month ago, and didn't take anymore until about a week ago. He will take 2 steps or so at a time, and that's it; he taught himself how to go feet first, backwards off the couch and stairs; he tries to snap along with music; he loves imitating everything we do.

We love you so much!!!

I always read your blog posts and I look up to you in so many different ways. You have been blessed in more ways than one and I am always wishing you, Solon and Quincy nothing but the best! I hope today is the day QB gets to dig his tiny little fingers in some fluffy cake and frosting and make a mess! Wishing Quincy Bell (the most handsome baby on the block)the best 1st Birthday!!! I hope you will post some Bday fun pics!
