As you can all see here, Quincy was not feeling enthusiastic about shopping at Target.
Actually it was more that he was pissed about being strapped into the shopping cart. He even spit up a little, which he hasn't done in months...I guess it was a protest of being buckled into that cart instead of crawling down all the aisles.
We found this cute leather kid chair in Target-- the only thing that Q was happy about was getting freed from the cart and the TAG of course!
He was so fixated on this tag, I couldn't get him to pose in the cute little mini leather chair. He ripped off the tag when we tried to take him out of the chair to put him back into the cart. Whatever makes him happy huh? Do you suppose we're setting ourselves up for a bratty kid who is only happy when he gets what he wants? I hope not!

Since he was working in Parma Quincy and I decided we should go too to see Grandma and Grandpa Howard. Tyler's first stop was meeting a guy at a Jaks gas station in town. Quincy and I got to share a jolly rancher flavored popcicle. Below are some pictures to proove that Q thouroughly enjoyed it.
I thought after a while his mouth would be numb, but he insisted on eating more each time I pulled it away.
Here he looks like he's in a coma.....a sugar coma.
This picture just goes to show how mad he would get when I pulled it away.
Here's his juicy popcicle covered lips.
This is probably as close as we get to actually getting a shot of him smiling for the camera. Too bad he won't show off that one tooth he has. It's pretty cute...
Tyler was proud of this picture that he took. He said it was a modeling picture; Quincy's showing his more serious side for the pose. :)
Every day Tyler is putting Quincy through his workout routine, trying to get him walking. I would love to see him walk, but also happen to be aware of the consequences that brings. I know that when he starts walking I'll start running-- after him, and boy is that kid quick when he crawls, I can only imagine him "walking". The picture above is Quincy's first steps.....
Okay we were just kidding-- I photo shopped out Tyler's finger that Quincy was holding onto....but hey it's just a preview of what's to come. In fact, be prepared to see more pictures of the back of Quincy while he's running away, especially with my stupid camera that won't get action shots. :) This picture above is more accurate of what he was really doing outside...not wanting to walk but sit down because he wanted to 'play' with the rocks. Stubborn kid!

I've been trying really hard to make sure that Quincy learns early on how to "communicate" with us when he cries. In a calm vioce while he's crying I ask him questions like: "Are you tired?" or "Is Quincy hungry?" or "Do your teeth hurt?". It might seem stupid, but I think he's starting to catch on. Tyler was working and so it was just Quincy and I at home. I was kinda hungry and craving something sweet and lucky me, there happened to be some cookie dough in the fridge I had made earlier. I sat down on the couch with the whole bowl of dough--because I didn't want to dirty another dish. Quincy saw me with the huge bowl and became very curious. He crawled over towards me and stood up next to couch in front of my lap. He watched me for a while. He would see me pick something out of the bowl and put it in my mouth. He did this several times and I could see him undersanding that whatever was in the bowl was food. He looked perplexed as if he didn't know what to do and then suddenly his eyes got big and he looked right into my eyes and said very excitedly: " NANA!" (Which is what he calls all food.)
He was adorable and he worked so hard at trying to communicate to me what he wanted. It was so awesome to watch him as his little mind worked. SO....I figure somewhere in there he really is learning those things which we repeatedly tell or ask him.
A MOTHER COULDN'T BE MORE PROUD!
Quincy and I are a great duo.....he loves hanging out with mom. Unfortunately since he's been teething he hasn't been the happiest camper. Here we were trying to get a decent picture...the one above is probably the best one, the one below is more realistic of what he was really doing-- screaming and yelling. Lucky for us though, he has FINALLY got a tooth. It's his bottom front left one that has just cut through....hallelujah! He's got one on the top too that's JUST about through completely. Poor little guy, he's been working so hard on getting them.

Poor Quincy is getting all 8 of his teeth right now. His top front and bottom ones are SO close. They are JUST about to cut through his gums. Poor little guy. He's been a little more aggitated and irritable lately...I guess I can't blame him. This picture above is from when he wasn't feeling too great.
This is after we played outside, he looks a little tired and worn out. He found his medicine and got pretty happy about it.
He's self medicating. :) Don't worry under supervision. :) lol

Okay, so mine was obviously harder than 'H' or 'T', so I had to be creative on a few. :)
Quincy is so smart. He learned how to press the button on his airplane. And when he DID learn how to press it, he kept repeatedly pressing it OVER and OVER again. It would only get through the "Welcome Friends! I'm Pooh Bear, are you ready for a ride?" Before he'd press it again.
