Can you believe.... Our adorable baby boy is a year old! ONE! I think the time of your last ever baby goes so much faster than that of your earlier kids, each milestone seems to be bitter sweet - "the last time our baby willl _____" etc.
Quinton Thomas is an amazing little guy, he said his first word "dad" at 5 months, followed my "Mum" and "yeah yeah yeah" a week later. It has truly amazed us all how his vocabulary has progressed in just a a few short months and at such a young age. At last count he had about 25 regular words and is already repeating LOTS of the things we say.
He will sit on the vacuum and sing out "vroom vroom" (or with anything with wheels, since about 8 months)
"Hey Mumma" when I walk in the room, or "My Mumma" when someone else is holding him and he wants me.
"Yay" for pretty much everytime any of his four sister walk into the room.
He has names for most of his sister too - "Lol Lol" came first at 6 months for Lauren, followed by "eeeeshh" for Teasha at 9 months, now he just yells "MELIA" for Amelia and "sis" for Marnie.
He is now walking (three days before his first birthday party) and totters around falling down still ;)
He is still ever the most content baby we have had, very snugly and giggly, always trying to work out how things work.
He loves cars and trains, and is happy to crawl around with a barbie doll hanging out his mouth. He loves playgroup and especially loves music and will stop mid play if he hears a song he likes and starts bouncing up and down to it. His favourite song is "I like to move it" from Madagascar.
So here are our favourite photos of Quinny over the past year, we have thousands, when you have a photographer for a Mumma and four sister with iphone/ipods - there is always someone capturing your cuteness ;)
