The most rewarding things for me this year were watching my children's personalities develop and observing their relationship develop from siblings into playmates, to (dare I say) friends.
As Max's vocabulary has increased, he is a happier kid. He can request whatever he wants verbally. At the beginning of the year he could ask for "apple" and "milk". Yesterday he asked me for "cinnamon toast".
