$15 Ikea tent vs. $600 dishwasher....

Why did we buy an indoor play tent from Ikea just last week, when a cardboard box is just as fun?
Oh, Quinny, you just wait until we get the big refrigerator box!

Brotherly love...

Parents are People

For Quinn's birthday, I bought him this book and cd. The c.d. has a song on it called 'Parents are People', and Quinn is completely obsessed with it. Seriously. He wants to hear it all the time. It's the first thing he wants in the morning. He wants to hear it at home, in the car, at the grocery store, at grandma's house...everywhere!
Watch a video for a slightly shortened version of the song here.

I want to ride my bicycle....

Last Friday, Quinn went on his first bike ride, to the park near our house.He doesn't quite get the whole pedaling thing quite yet, but I'm sure it will come with time.
And for the ridiculous amount of pictures...

Quinn's Second Birthday

I can't believe our little boy is two already! Yikes! Time is flying by....
We celebrated a couple weeks ago with a very small backyard barbecue (veggie, of course). I made some yummy carrot cake and chocolate cupcakes, both iced with amazing vegan cream cheese frosting (all recipes from this book).

The Pigeon books are favorites around here. Auntie Janet got Quinn this one, and he seems to be enjoying it:

And the big present.....a new bike!
