She gets this award because at the beginning of the year she wowed us by learning to walk, through out the year she has learned new words and tricks and lately she keeps all of us on our toes by doing funny things all the time. She will dance around the living room and tell me watch mom watch mom, she loves to race, lately she is singing "ABC'S" They aren't really the abc's but she is singing that tune and trying to put the right sounds in there. What ever is going on she is in the middle of it, the instigator of it, or copying the kids jut to keep up. Not a day goes by that she doesn't make me laugh. She is the sunshine in our house!
Brock wins the "Archaeologist of the Year" Award
This year has been all about Dinosaurs with this kids. He is almost ok not almost he is OBSESSED with dinosaurs! It has been a lot of fun and we have learned a lot because of this obsession. We do kind of feed the obsession but I think it is a good one to allow since he is learning a lot and having so much fun with it. It has lead us to Museums I probably wouldn't have gone to, books I wouldn't have read, the biggest show I have ever been to, and one of the most fun birthday parties I have ever put together! I kind of hope he hangs on to this love of Dino's!
Amelia gets the "Fashion Award"
I may not always agree with her "fashion"sense but she definitely has her own taste. She loves to wear dresses and skirts and would rather be caught dead then wear pants! We even had to get her very best friend/ grandma to convince her to wear pants so she could play in the snow! She loves even getting her hair done in new "styles" so we love to look at hair blogs to get new ideas! This is all her own idea and begs me to try new things all the time. It is fun! What a sweet girl!
