I WAS BORN: Aug. 23, 2006, in St. Mary's Medical Center.
MY PARENTS ARE: Erick and Ashanti Halli of Cloquet.
MY BROTHER IS: Elijah, 5½.
MY GRANDPARENTS ARE: Cindy Sheldon of Cloquet; Don and Laurie Sheldon of Proctor; and Robert and Kay Halli of Thomson.
MY GREAT-GRANDPARENTS ARE: George and Bernie Sheldon of Elk City, Kan.; Marion Bergeron of Cloquet; and the late Ken and June Dahl, Rudy Bergeron and Phyllis "Jean" and Otto Halli.
MY PARENTS CHOSE THIS NAME BECAUSE: They had another name picked out, but when I was born Dad said "What about Quinn?" My middle name is after my Great-grandpa Rudy.
PARENTS' WISH OR ADVICE: Do all that you do to the best of your ability. Always be best friends with your brother and remember Mommy and Daddy love you.
SOMETHING SPECIAL: Grandma Kay and Nana were in the waiting room when you were born. After a few scary moments when your heart rate dropped, you were born a healthy boy. The rest of our family arrived soon at the hospital to meet you.
