Bizzare dinner, but great

Tonight we had very spicy green salsa and chips, over half a lemon (Imrana would be proud) and broccoli. Actually all she wanted was the broccoli and was very upset that a large piece fell on the ground. So upset that I had to give it to her minus that part actually laying on the ground. That upset her too, that she wasn't getting the whole thing. Btw- it was only the flowers not the stems.

Heat oil in a 10-in. skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork in oil about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place onion and garlic in 3 1/2 to 6 qt. slow cooker. Place pork on top of onion, carrots, potatoes, and garlic. Pour broth over pork. Cover and cook on LOW heat setting 8-10 hours or until pork is tender.

Quinn loved a little red and yellow car, she drove it everywere. We went down the gigantic slide about 20 times...nothing for Quinn, big work out for Sabrina. We are looking foward to go back soon!!

Future Tennis Player

This Thursday morning Quinn and Sabrina went to the park. Quinn found one new friend who sheared with her the pink racket ball set. Quinn is great in holding the racket and gets very excited when the ball hit the net. I can see the future little girl playing tennis! She loves to go to the park, make new friends, try new sports.

Ah ha! Protein is not surprising!

Pam says, "it's not surprising she is a protein baby--the only thing I craved during pregnancy was a hamburger with a fried egg on top."

Cooking with Quinn

We started included Quinn in the cooking this weekend. She stirred the eggs for our omelet on Saturday. (Although she didn't eat any of it once it was made.)

She also mashed the bananas for her banana muffins. It is a good thing that the muffins were for her... Because as she mashed , she would lick the banana off the masher. She also tried to "drink" the bananas, but that was unsuccessful.


Well tonight at dinner, Quinn had Veracruz red snapper, Pam had the remaining rice and grilled veggies and Drew finished off the untouched child's ground beef enchiliada. :)

Comprehension and Unstanding

Okay, so Quinn's hair is long enough that we need to put it into ponytails... We have been doing this for a while, and occasionally we'd pull her hair - and she'd yell about it. We'd (unstandably) say sorry, and stop pulling. Well she was then convinced that "sorry" ment "ow" or "pain". She would say "sorry" everytime that we pulled her hair. I told her today, while Pam was doing her her, "that when we accidentally pull her hair - she should say 'ow" and we would say 'sorry'. " She incorporated it immediatly, and said "ow" for the rest of the struggle of getting her hair into a ponytail. Of couse, we still said sorry each time.

Thy cup runneth over

Even though at almost 19 months, Quinn thinks of herself as nearly 3 years old -- it is nice to see that she is still seems small when wearing our clothes. She is obsessed with Pam's bras, especially the purple one. She parades around the bathroom in it frequently!

Yesterday, morning she was very adamant about not wearing her pants, but wearing Daddy's. It was fun to see the contrast between the sizes. She was throughly entertained by me trying to get into her jeans (making all sorts of goofy faces) while she was sitting in mine.

Stomping Ground!!

Sabrina and Quinn went to Stomping and Ground (15415 SW Freeway Sugar Land, 77478). She loved it, she climbed, jumped, slid, crawled and laughed with her friend Grace who also was there. Quinn is a professional player in the area that is suposed to be for kids 3 years old and up . She used her "excuseme" a lot when she try to pass some other kids.
Sabrina es muy feliz los martes y jueves porque pasa el dia completo con Quinn la nena mas inteligente, divertida y linda.

Hangin' with Quinn - literally!

Miss Independent loves gymnastics. She goes on Fridays with Grandma PoPo. She wants to hang from the trapeze bar by herself. And she's quite adamant that it's "self". After watching a demonstration from Coach Laura, Quinn straightened her arms, lifted her knees up and supported herself on the parallel bars! (These are parallel bars made for her size, not the ones the Olympians use! :-))
