Since before Nash was born, I knew that I wanted to have a little Big Brother Party for Quinn. I wanted to wait until some of the newness wore off to celebrate how special it was that he was now Nash’s Big Brother.
So, Sunday, when Matt took Q to church, Nash and I got ready for the event. We made cupcakes, decorated the table, hung streamers and went to get balloons. We also put out the special trophy that we had ordered.
Sadly, Quinn had a rough Sunday morning…wondering why Mommy & Nash couldn’t come to church too…and really missing Daddy during his class time. So, it was the prefect day to celebrate him.
When he walked in the door, he thought it was a birthday and immediately asked where the presents were. But, when he saw the trophy and fun cupcakes (and got a little “talkin’ to” from his Daddy) he seemed to truly appreciate his special party. The cutest thing about the trophy was that it had two stars…a big one and a little one. We told him that the BIG star was for him and the baby one was for Nash. He was so proud of that and immediately ran over to Nash to explain the significance of the stars. So sweet. After filling out some pages of Quinn’s Big Brother Book and good naps were had by all, we went outside for some Silly String fun! Quinn’s faces were priceless and the mess we made was HUGE! We may forever have silly string remnants in our yard and on our sidewalk…oh well…it was worth it! I am truly so thankful for the big brother that Quinn already is to Nash. And, I loved celebrating him today!!!
