Toy Story

We took Quinn to his first movie last weekend. And you'd need only one guess for what we saw- Toy Story 3! Quinn was a champ! He LOVED the movie! And he did NOT like Lotso, the mean purple teddy bear. He kept saying, "Bye Bear!" And if you have heard him say, "Bear," it's hilarious! It comes out as, "Bay-a." Honestly, take out the 20 minutes of previews and Quinn pretty much sat through the entire movie- give or take a few passes back and forth between me and Ben. The worst part of it...I forgot my camera- so Ben took this one with his blackberry.

Potty Time

Practice makes perfect, right? One of my potty training books says it could take up to a year! Lord, please give me patience. Amen.

Summer School

For the summer, Quinn is going to a new school- Atascocita United Methodist Church Weekday Learning Program- or AUMC Weekday for short. He starts each day out in a shy mood as we walk into class, and yet he doesn't cry or fret when I kiss him goodbye. He's always been that way- even when he was four months old and we left him in the church nursery for the first time. Me, on the other hand, I've been a nervous wreck about it. I even cried the first day of school. Don't get me started on the nap mat situation (which is now solved)!
For seven weeks, Quinn will do all things space! He's already made alien art, played with moon sand, and made a flying saucer pizza for lunch. Still ahead is making glow-in-the-dark shirts for black light day...I mean outer space day!

A Buzz Buzz Here, A Buzzy There

Quinn's collection of Buzz memorabilia is slowly growing. He now has two Buzz Lightyear "action figures." One is big and chunky, perfect for little hands. This was his first Buzz. The other is a smaller figure much like the old Star Wars or GI Joe toys. As to prevent any confusion for us, Quinn named the smaller one, "Buzzy." So, we now have Buzz and Buzzy. Don't get it wrong!

Well, Duh

Scene: Chick-Fil-A playhouse. Quinn standing in front of the wacky mirror. Mom and Dad watching from the bench.

Dad: Quinn, who's that in the mirror?
Quinn: Me!
