Happy Birthday Quinn!
Happy Birthday, Quinn! 2 years ago, we welcomed Quinn into the world, and the world hasn't been the same since! Throughout the majority of my pregnancy, I told Dr. Elder that I was going to have a small baby. 6lbs sounded good to me. He asked why I thought that and I told him it was because the girls both weighed under 5lbs. Then he reminded me that technically, I carried over 9 lbs of baby with the girls and that that was what my body could handle. So, no, I would not be having a small baby.
I believe I cried after that.
And Quinn exceeded even the doctor's expectations - 8lbs 13 oz and 22.5 inches long. (He had 4lbs and 5 inches on the girls.) I felt like I was holding a 4 month old baby.
While we have learned that boys are very different from girls, we have also learned that this boy has an immeasurable amount of love to give. He is good at sharing and giving hugs and kisses. He is also the most wonderful child to take to the doctor's office or to get a haircut.
And, I know that I often complain about him (who doesn't complain about their 2 year old???), I also can't imagine life without him.
