If I could bottle this guys energy... a 14 month old knows no bounds! Quinten has never been much of a napper, good night sleeper, not a good napper. The world is just such an exciting place to explore that he has no time for sleep. In fact he has no time to sit still... at all! We are always running a muck through the house getting into this and that, and making mom's daily tasks just that much harder! But really though we have a lot of fun. The weather man was calling for some rain for the weekend so we tried to burn as much energy as we could outside so that being cooped up for the weekend wouldn't be as painful :)
Our summer harvest is about done, we plan to garden before the rain hits so Quinten and I went out to pick the last of our yellow pear tomatoes...
Unfortunately more ended up in the dogs mouth than the bowl (well at least his) :)
When we were done outside (haha we're never really done) We came inside changed our clothes (because we ended the day in the dog water...) and acted like a silly guy until daddy came home from work!

So us central coast-yins were hit by a heat wave for the past week or so. Topping the charts at 103, I know for some that may not seem to bad, but for us that is HOT! Thank God we have an air conditioner, even just the window one helped a ton, our house was not made for that kind of heat! So with a little one we got a little creative on keeping him busy, but cool.
Obviously before the heat came into town, we went to the park by the house. Quinten loved watching the big kids play, pick grass and hand it to mom and Grandma, and pull a big leaf from the tree and try to put it back :)
Day 1 of the heat wave, not realizing how hot it was supposed to get daddy and us went back to the park. By the time we got there it was already 91 at about 10am... so I got some shots for my class and let the kid play for a minute and then we bolted! :)
So we went home (inside the cool air!) and played in our new tent courtesy of Aunty Liz :) The game started by piling his toys into it instead of himself. But once dad got in a whole new game began!
I think this was day 4 of the heat wave... I started to lose track. I just new it was hot. Really hot. And I don't like hot. I'm a winter girl. You know, sweaters, scarfs, rain and snow. Thats me. Not heat!!! Anyways back to the photo, Quintens new favorite place is Slim's dog bed. Once he goes outside I turn it over so Q doesn't get covered in dog hair (anymore than normal at least). He snuggles it, plays in it, and even brings a book into and "reads". How funny is that?
We bounce in our jumper every morning while mom pumps and has some breakfast... I think the cooped up-ness was finally getting to him. Or he was just pondering the big questions in life...

As soon as I read the Shoot N Tell task for this week these 3 pictures all in my archives popped into my head...
You Can't Have "bounce" without a ball right? Here's one of our pooches catchin the ball after one big bounce!
Not long after our little man arrived we went to our friends baby shower which of course had a bounce house... no need for explanation right :)
And this is what happens when you bounce toooo much!! The night our bouncer arrived Quinten took a nap after about 5 minutes of bouncing :) Aint he precious?!

I think he was pretty excited to have a friend in his crib with him. And well I guess if he gains 160 pounds we know he can still go in his crib :)
"Oh come snuggle"
I wonder where Quinten gets his goofy-ness from?

My Flowers :)
My New Fairy
Wildflowers on the way
Playing with mom
Being a mom is that I started this post 2 weeks ago and I'm just able to finish :) Being a mom is scary, exciting, entertaining, busy, exhausting, trying, and most of all blissful. Its as if this little man who really has only been in our life for a little over 8 months has truly been a part of us forever. Its learning something new about yourself every day, good and the bad :). Its opening yourself up more than you ever have. Its just sitting back sometimes and smiling thinking to yourself 'I love my life.' Mothers day is supposed to be a day for others to celebrate the mom's in their life. But I also took advantage of it and celebrated my little man, because really I wouldn't have had a mothers day if it weren't for him. And he is something to be celebrated.
