Thyssen Scott

Thiss little guy has made my life so fun over the past 4 years. He came out screaming and that should have been my first clue as to how passionate he is. He is so loving and sensitive, yet also very energetic and rambunctious. He loves to trick me and tease me and loves to make a crowd laugh. He gets his feelings hurt easily, like if Belen runs too far ahead of him, or if he is last at anything. He isn't naturally confident, but gains confidence as he masters a skill. He is a huge question asker and wants everything explained to him in detail. He is obsessed with how old people are and always wants to talk about death. He is great at memorizing. When he was 2, we were out to eat and he saw a 6 as our table number and told me that if I turned the 6 upside down it would make a 9. He knows his numbers to 20 and all his letters and sounds. I think he may have a photographic memory.. he never forgets....anything. He has such a happy-go-lucky personality and loves making friends. His preschool teacher told me that he plays with all kids equally, so I guess we could say he's an equal opportunity friend. He gets a little overzealous at times and we have to reign him in or focus his energy elsewhere. We love this little guy and are so happy he is in our family. Happy 4th Brithday Thy-guy!

Belen's 6th Birthday!

I figured I better post Belen's birthday from December, since it's already Thyssen's bday in a few days. She had a Build-A-Bear party this year. She loved every second of it.. it was very cute. She got a little overwhelmed when she went up on the landing and overlooked the workshop. The entire workshop sang to her and she didn't smile once.. it was a bit much for her to take in. It was a crazy rainy-stormy day, so it was nice that most of her friends braved the weather to come. We were supposed to open presents and have cup cakes outside afterwards, but because it was so rainy, we ended up giving out the cupcakes to go and going out to pizza. I'm glad she got the party she really wanted and that it was such a special day for her. You only turn 6 once!!
