We drove over to the east side of the state to visit with Chris's parents. Quinn had a really good time with his Grandma Karath.
He enjoyed crawling all over the floor.
And sitting up on the couch, smiling away.
Then we drove out to White Lake to visit Chris's dad, where Quinn got to enjoy sitting on another couch. He's getting to be a pro.
He really likes standing all over everything, so walking on the table with Grandpa was a lot of fun. 
Quinn had a lot of fun. Especially watching the ceiling fan. He loves ceiling fans.

He's getting up on all fours, rocking back and forth, and taking mini-steps before getting back down on his stomach and doing an army crawl.

Quinn tried to eat Leki's tail this morning. Leki wasn't too excited about it and kind of whined until he could get away.
I picked Chris and Quinn up at Comfort and Adam's house at lunch. They were all out walking together when it started to downpour. Since they were near Comfort and Adam's house, they just stayed there until I could pick them up. It looks like they had a good time.

We all went out at lunch for a surprise bridal shower for a co-worker today. We went to XO Asian Cuisine, because there's an awesome server there (Cindy) that several of us love. Plus the food is great.

Today Quinn is 6 months. He's standing more on his own and he's creeping along on the carpet more and more each day.
Chris and Quinn came up to my work today and he was great. He smiled, he babbled, he was just all around well behaved for a kid past his nap time. We are so lucky he's so laid back.

Safely away from a creeping baby, it's time to nap.

We went down to the new Tanger Outlet mall today. The whole thing feels like a time warp to the 1980s. Outside speakers blasting oldies (as in 1950s songs, which were oldies in the 80s), older people milling about waiting for stores to open. And thanks to the heat, I felt like I was in Florida.

Quinn and Chris had a good time. I'm sure Chris will take him down there periodically just to check out the Toys R Us down there.

Today's the first time Quinn's been in a restaurant. I met my friend Shelly for breakfast and brought the little guy along. He did great. He was very calm and played with his cloth book for awhile. And after about an hour I took him out of his car seat and he got to climb all over everything.

It was great catching up with Shelly and good to know that Quinn was ok just hanging out for a bit.
And Shelly gave Quinn some toys. A nice blanket and a cute plush toy. Quinn especially likes the bird that goes with the nesting set.
