Happy 7th Birthday Q!!

Happy Birthday to our Quinny! I have been noticing lately that is more of a big boy rather than a little boy; he is getting taller every day.  Q is very clever, always figuring things out, trying to be funny, and tattling on/one upping his big brother. He is competitive and wants to get better at baseball, soccer, and skiing. He is pretty well behaved and is learning what is appropriate behaviour and language for different situations. When he was littler, we would really need to work with him to calm down if he got upset, and although there are sometimes glimpses of it when he gets overwhelmed or frustrated now, he has really grown up in this area and it's a bit easier to reason with him.  He gets his emotional side from his dad ;)

This year he is walking to school with E, which is such a great opportunity for learning some independence. He has always been the little kid on the street, but now they are meeting up with some of some younger kids and Q has embraced being the "big kid" in those interactions.  He still goes to the YMCA after school and can always be found playing with a bunch of friends. He also went to overnight camp for a week this past year and is keen to go back for two weeks next year. 

Q loves his family very much and likes to snuggle and be cozy.  He likes to help out with chores and other things, and he also likes to play video games, like his older brother.  

He is such a sweet boy and growing up so fast. 

Here are a few photos of Q from the year, with the annual birthday quiz below.

  1. Happy birthday, Q! He sounds like a lovely boy. I had a chuckle at the fact that he likes Fortnite but doesn't play.

  2. So fun! I hope he had a great birthday!
