Our sweet Quinn turns ONE!

I don't really know how to start with this post, because I'm a little emotional about it. I can't believe our little Quinn turned one! I guess I'll start by saying this little girl of mine has changed our lives completely! She has made me a better person. She has strengthened my testimony of family and eternity. She has made me want to be a better person with a desire to live the gospel more fully. Heavenly Father has entrusted me with this precious and healthy spirit and it is up to me to teach her what's right. Having her has given me a greater understanding of the atonement and the unconditional love that God has for his children. She has taught me patience and how to be unselfish. Never have I felt so exhausted, so happy, and so grateful all at the same time. 

This girl is certainly sugar and spice. Boy does she have a lot of spice!! Sometimes it's so fun and sometimes it's frustrating. But I wouldn't change a thing about her. She has so much personality and really keeps me laughing and on my toes. She is certainly loved by everyone around her. 

She started walking around June 6! Why did I want her to walk?! She is all over the place and doesn't care if she falls hard or not. She just goes all for it...running!! She still doesn't sleep through the night. She wakes up once or twice. I'm hoping that will change when I stop nursing her within the next couple weeks. She is a determined little thing and is so smart. She is really good at making faces...kissy faces, scowls, cheesy smiles. She loves kids and practically hyperventilates when she sees them. She has four teeth. She doesn't like baby food, but I still try to feed it to her. She loves baby Cheetos, avocado, scrambled eggs, and bread (who doesn't?). She loves to be outside. She is busy busy busy. By the end of the day, I am really tired. 

We had a bday party for her on June 14. It was super fun. She got spoiled. She didn't eat any cake at all just smooshed it all over hair. 

Happy birthday Quinners!! We love you more than you will ever know. We are so lucky Heavenly Father sent you to our family. We can't imagine our lives without you. 

She's finally getting the hang of story time.
