Quinn Lately {3 years, 9 months}


Oh, Quinn.

My big, sassy, moody little ball buster. I know I've said it before, but whoever invented the phrase "Terrible Two's" didn't know what was coming. Quinn was a breeze at two. A breeze.

Three? A totally different story. You still continue to be an overall easy child. It doesn't take much to please you and you are a relatively happy go lucky child. The moods however? WOW. Like I don't even want to think about your teenage years. {How do I get the wine emoji to come up in Blogger?}


You are sensitive. You get that from both mommy and daddy. We have to be extra careful with your emotions because you make us feel absolutely horrible sometimes when we have to discipline you. But you are also tough. And stubborn. And we kind of love that about you. Well, let's be honest, we kind of love everything about you. Because you are just an awesome kid. And it amazes me every single day that you can literally make me want to fetal position it on the floor one second and then be the sweetest little thing to walk this earth a minute later.

"Hey mommy, I know what will make you realllllly laugh!" Then scoots on her scooter and does a little trick. Adorable.



Our biggest difficulty with you? Your mouth! And your super mind ninja skills. Because holy crap. The things that come out of your mouth are mind boggling, and to be completely honest...pretty impressive. I would be lying if I said we always are quick with a response. Because you often leave us speechless and trying to hide our laughter. Which brings me to the next thing...

You are so funny.

Not just like 3 year old funny, but your comedic timing is on point girlfriend. You love to make people laugh and we wonder if you'll end up on SNL someday.


You seem to be loving food more than usual these days. You still love, love, love fruit. Ever since you were a baby you would go nuts for any kind of fruit. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, grapes. Doesn't matter, it's the first thing to go off of your plate. And chocolate. Because hello? You are mine.

You are quite possibly the best big sister I could have ever imagined you would be. It makes me sad Harper isn't as sweet to you most times, although she is coming around. You could strangle that baby with hugs every second of the day if we'd let you. You are just a sweet girl. You love to take care of people and you have suddenly found an interest for turning into "baby Quinn". Which I'm not going to lie, we aren't really fans of, except when you let us cuddle on the couch with you and watch a movie. Then you are free to be baby Quinn as long as you'd like!

You start preschool in the fall which neither your father or I can talk about without shedding a tear. I can't even think about it. But you are so excited and are obsessed with your learning books, so I have a feeling you will love it just fine. While mommy and daddy are going to have to just suck it up. (Again, where is the wine emoji?)


You continue to be my champion sleeper. (TAKE A HINT, HARPER). You rarely nap anymore, but you sleep in until 8:00/8:30 and for that my dear, I could not be more thankful. 

You love to copy things that mommy and daddy say and sometimes the end result is hilarious. Mommy tends to say "You are so cute I can't even stand it!" and you are now known to say "You are so cute, I don't understand it!" Oh and we have also entered the age of a million questions.

I am not exaggerating when I say a million questions. But we do our best to answer each and everyone. Even if it kills us :)

We love you so much baby girl. You are just such a joy to be around and your feisty personality is hilarious to watch. You are the best kid that could have turned us into parents and we could not be more thankful for you.

Sass and all.
