And Now-Happy Birthday Quinten

Happy Birthday my sweet, smiley boy! Today he is 1 year old. No longer zero. We had these pictures taken for yesterday. I couldn't decide so I got this collage as well as 8 sheets of the bottom right picture. It was hard to pick because every picture he was smiling in. I tried to get pictures of both kids together but that didn't work out at all. I couldn't get them to sit still. Today Quinten learned how to climb out of his high chair. I was cleaning out the oven, and Ethan called for me. "Auntie Kirsten look at Quinten." There Quinten was standing on the top of his tray. I know the high chair came with straps but I have no idea where I put them. I guess I will have to use duct tape to strap him in. Then after breakfast I put him to bed in just his diaper, well I found him jumpinh around buck naked. What is with my kids and their diapers.
It kind of makes me sad that a year has already gone by. Soon he won't be a baby. It's amazing how much he has grown in the last year. Again Happy Birthday QuinQuin! We love you!

I think my favourite is the one with the mirror, though it is hard to chose since he is gorgeous in all of them.

Are you the wife of Red Green? I thought you might be since you want to use duct tape to keep Quinten in his chair. If you actually do that, I want a picture.

Well now that he's 1 year old it's time to head to walmart pick him up some camo-clothes and hit the woods for a little hunting with Uncle Drew.

Yep, nothing marks a boy reaching his first year of manhood like a bloody deer carcass strapped to the roof of the truck!!!

I remember Ethan's one year hunting trip with me like it was yesterday. The echoing ring as he fired his first shots in the forest. I had a tear in my eye when that 5 point buck dropped to the ground!!

Yep, it's sure great to be a young man growin up in Alberta!!!

If you see these pictures keep scrolling. I'm surprised that Andrew didn't comment on the finger picture.

beautiful pictures what a great smile he has. duct tape seems to works for many things in your house hold.

I noticed the finger picture. I was going to say the back of his jumper should say "bad to the bone" instead of what I'm sure is probably something pretty sissy.

All four pictures are really cute, I can see why it was a tough choice. I like the one you chose b/c it shows he's a well-dressed little man. I also like the mirror one b/c it's unique, the close-up b/c it shows off his famous grin and dimples, and the crawling one b/c he looks playful.
