4 Months


Quentin is now 4 months old. He weighs 16 lbs. 8 oz. and is 27 inches long! His doctor said he is longer than 95% of the babies his age, and weighs more than 85%. Wowzers!


At 4 months he is:
-Talking ( i.e., squealing and screaming)
-Attempting to roll over from back to tummy (he rolled over for one whole day, from his tummy to his back. But now refuses to do it).
-Blows very slobbery raspberries.
-Grabs, holds onto toys, and puts them to his mouth.
-Laughs a little, but it takes a lot to get it out of him.
-Smiles all the times (although I still haven't been able to really catch it on camera).
-Continues to be as sweet as he can be.



Here is a video of him "talking" a little bit, before he decided to chomp on his hand instead. lol



For familia that get my posts through e-mail, you will have to go to our actual blog to watch the video... here

We all love him so much. :)

Halloween 2010

Here we are for our ward's Halloween Trunk or Treat party on the Friday before Halloween.



Dan and I dressed up as Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf again. Dallin was Darth Vader, Sierra was a vampire bride, and Quentin was a little puppy dog.



It was a fun night and the kids looked so cute.

Carving Time

Dallin's jack-o-lantern was a pirate. See the eye patch?


Not sure what Sierra's was supposed to be. But it had hair. ;)


Ooooooo Spooky!

Pumpkins Everywhere

Before Halloween we went to our local pumpkin patch. Dan's brother, Adam and Adam's girlfriend, Kim were visiting us at the time. So they were able to go with us.



What Quentin did the whole time yet again. lol


Finding a good pumpkin



Yippee, for the pumpkin patch!

The Ocean

During Labor Day we went to the ocean with some friends of ours. Quentin was only about a month old, and he did so well. He slept pretty much the whole trip.


We went to two different beaches. The first was rocky, with tide pools and seals. It was neat to see all the little sea creatures, but it was windy and chilly.



The seals


Then the second beach had smooth sand to make sand castles, and warmer temperatures. The water was still on the cold side, but that didn't stop the kids from getting themselves drenched.




Both places were a lot of fun. We had a great time!

Professional Photos

A friend of mine is a professional photographer. You can see her work here.

When Quentin was 10 days old she traveled to our home and took pictures of him. And some with Dallin and Sierra as well.

She did a beautiful job and was so good with Quentin. Here are some of the photos that we purchased from her.


See, isn't her work exquisite?!

We'll be getting this storyboard in the 10x20 size to hang on our wall or on an easel (I haven't decided yet).

3 Months Old

Quentin reached his 3 month mark two days ago.


We won't know his stats until his 4 month appointment. But I can tell he continues to grow "like a flower, not a weed" (as Sierra would say).

He is all smiles for us now. Unfortunately I haven't been able to catch any on camera. But I almost got it with this picture.


He'll hold his head up while on his stomach like a pro. He especially likes to do tummy time while on mommy's legs, and then look around at everything around him.


He is also batting at his toys all the time and within the last two days he has started to grab at his toys too!


He is an easy going, happy baby. And continues to bring our family joy.

The Fair

We went to the fair, as a family, a few weeks ago. It has been a long time since the last time we went to a county fair. So this was a fun experience for us.



We checked out all the farm animals.





Dallin and Sierra played in the kids zone area.




Dallin played this rifle shooting game.



Also Dan and the kids checked out this big tree house.



We went on a couple rides.



And best of all ate yummy fair food (I was too busy eating it to get any pictures lol).

And this is what Quentin did the whole time we were there. :)

Enjoying the Bouncy Seat and Swing

Quentin really likes his cradle swing. This is what he does every time he gets in it. :)

He also has a cute bouncy seat that he loves. It has these adorable woodland animal toys on it. Quentin has decided they are his good friends. He'll smile and talk to them each time he sits down. It is beyond adorable.


Here is a video I caught of him talking to his animal friends. He is starting to try to bat at things. But, as you can see in the video, he hasn't quite gotten his coordination down yet. Poor thing almost poked himself in the eye. lol He is such a darling boy.

2 Months Old


Quentin turned two months old this past Saturday. He weighs 12 lbs. 10 oz. And is 24 inches long. Needless to say he is a big boy and oh so cute!


He now blows spit bubbles, holds his head up well, smiles (although it still takes a lot of coaxing to get those smiles), and makes adorable cooing noises. And obviously he is a really good eater. lol

So serious!


Dallin used to sleep exactly like this, when he was a baby.
