Q: What is she like as a baby?

A:A: This little blue-eyed soul is so sweet, loving and charismatic. She is not very dramatic, she’s go-with-the-flow, and is an even-tempered little chick (just wait, we know, we know). She seems to be a cautious girl when it comes to new people approaching her, but sit down and read her a book, and she is your best friend. Minus a short month early on where she was in stranger danger mode, we have a little socialite. She loves smiling, saying hello to everyone in the grocery store and is a jabber box.

A:A: She is crawling around like a mad woman in all which ways, but at the same time, she has slowed our lives down, and we are thoroughly enjoying all the small moments. It’s crazy how we put her to bed at night, and it seems she is a new person and an inch taller each morning. Time truly does fly, and I don't like that part.

Q: What adventures has she been on during her first year?

A:A: Quincey has been to Lake Powell and the cabin this year, but more so, she has taken us on adventures this year. We have explored new territories in our house that we didn't even know were cool, like underneath the dining table and deep inside our bathroom vanity. We have never made so many faces at ourselves in the mirror as we do now. It feels pretty good and freeing of the soul.

A:A: We recommend TMH birthing center to everyone with confidence and excitement, because we had such an amazing experience there.

We are going to TMH Medical Clinic for pediatric services. We mainly see Dr. Follet, but she recently went on maternity leave, so now we see Dr. Yarmer, and we felt right at home with her. Thankfully we have had a healthy first year of life and have only had to go see these wonderful ladies for well-child checkups and vaccinations.
