Baby Quinn

It's been a busy few weeks around here!  We have been busy doing church stuff, summer stuff, and family stuff.    We have a new arrival in our family.  My brother and sister-in-law just had their 4th baby, and it's their 4th little girl!   

Baby Quinn arrived on June 23, 2011 and she is such a sweetheart.   I spent the day with the other girls while Mom and Dad were at the hospital.  These girls couldnt contain their excitement!  They were so happy to have another little sister and they couldnt wait to go to the hospital to meet her.
Big Sis Carlee - so in love!
To say they were smitten with her would be an understatement!   She is just a sweet little doll.   It was a shock to see all of her dark hair.  (All the others have light hair and have been pretty bald)
I think it's safe to say that we all like her.... A LOT!
I was so excited when I got to spend a little time with Baby Quinn today while Mom and Dad went to an appointment.   Miss M wasnt sure what to think. When I asked her if she wanted to hold her, Miss M said "No Thanks, Mom...I too small"   (I think she was glad that the baby wasnt staying)

Did you actually think I could have this squishy little baby at my house and not snap a few pics?
No Way!!

Happy Birthday!

I just wanted to post a quick note wishing a Happy Birthday to someone very special to our family.

Today is Miss M.'s Birth Mother's Birthday.  It is because of her selfless sacrifice that I became a mother.  I am eternally grateful for that blessing.  Jes, you are an amazing person.  I marvel at your strength and courage. We hope you have the most wonderful day today.  Please know that we love you and think about you all the time!

And I couldn't leave today with out posting this picture
Today our YW had a 5k Fundraiser to raise money for girls camp.   We also had a fun 3k walk.  Unfortunately I couldn't run because I had to manage the Bake Sale (I know...5k and Bake Sale - gotta love the irony)  Anyway, our neighbor took Miss M on the 3k Walk.   I dont know how long she walked (I heard that our neighbor had to carry her for a bit) but Miss M was ALL about the Finish Line.   It was so cute to watch her run to cross the finish line.  This picture just captures it all.    I Love it!!
