It's Q's 6th birthday!! He's not really our little Quinn anymore, he is growing all the time and his legs are stretching out. He is a sweet boy who likes to snuggle and be warm and cozy. He can be a bit dramatic about certain things, and some things can really bother him, but once he understands what is going on, he's usually able to go along with what we need to do. For example, recently he never wants to go to bed, but it isn't long before he says "okay fine" and gets all ready for bed without (more) complaining.
His personality shines through too and he likes to make us laugh. He is competitive when it comes to sports and yells things like "Let's go!!".
His interests are varied and he tends to zero in on something for a week or so and then moves on. In the summer he made a ton of paper airplanes one week, he likes to play Legos and it's not so much building as it is playing with the little figurines and setting up action scenes. His teacher has set him up on Lalilo, an app for reading, and we had to drag him away from it so we could watch a show on Monday, and on Tuesday he started playing it on his own after he got home from school. He enjoys school and always has lots to tell us.
He is lucky to have his older brother E to keep up with. They are great friends and it means Q gets exposed to different games and shows that he wouldn't necessarily see if he was the oldest.
Here are some photos from the past year with the annual birthday quiz to follow.

Not too many photos of the weekend, despite the fact we had a few things going on. On Friday night Q had skating and then we came home for pizza night. I had picked up these pretty flowers earlier in the day as a nice touch of fall. This is the same bouquet, just different sides.

People are always saying that our kids either look like me or Dave and it varies depending on how old they are, but really, I haven't really seen any similarities. So I thought I would do some comparisons and see what you thought. I did pictures of us all as babies, toddlers, and school age.
