Mischievous One

One day God blessed us with this little boy named David.  He is a sweet little boy.  He likes to make others happy.  His smile and bright blue eyes can make anyone smile.  His hard-headedness can drive you crazy.  The things he says keeps you laughing.  His intelligence is jaw-dropping.  The way he loves his brothers and family warms your heart.  I love when he says "Mama, I love you" out of the blue.  He is truly a blessing.

Five years later, God blessed us again.  This time with two little boys instead of one.  Dillan is a cuddler, such a sweet child.  The way he looks up at you with his similarly bright blue eyes makes you want to squeeze him.  The way he says "mama," "dada," and "no no" makes your heart fill with joy.  You feel sorry for him when he throws the bottle because it is empty.  His hugs and kisses and giggles are indescribable.  He is truly another blessing.

 Daniel is the third highlight to our family.  His brown eyes can show happiness or looks of "what are you doing?"  His smile is contagious.  His hugs are warm.  He makes you so proud when he lifts his arms like a zombie and takes steps across the room. 
There is another trait Daniel has: he is MISCHIEVOUS!  He is definitely the ringleader of getting into things.  We have a playpen in the living room.  First, he figured out how to move the side far enough for him to crawl out.  We moved an activity center in front of it so he couldn't move it.  Welllllll, he is strong enough to move both now.  The couch is away from the wall so the recliners can let out.  Daniel crawls behind it and pulls the phone receiver off the end table.  Dillan follows and they both get wrapped up in cord.  When they are in the kitchen, Daniel pulls open every cabinet and drawer he can open.  Does he pull out the things he is allowed to play with?  NO!  He gets the glass pans, ceramic pots, and the blender.  That's not all.  The list goes on.  If the refrigerator or pantry door opens, he makes a B line for them.  David tried to be a big boy and make his own pb & j sandwich.  While he was getting the jelly, both Daniel and Dillan got in the way.  He sat the jelly jar down to move them and guess what.  Daniel grabbed the jar and with one BANG, the jar busted to pieces!  I could continue the list, but I will save the other stories for another day. 

Needless to say, there is NEVER a dull moment in the Quinn household and I wouldn't change it for the world.  Thank you God for all our chaos.
