What is your baby’s most precious moment? Having his family make him laugh and taking his first steps.
What is your favorite story? We love telling stories about all of his different facial expressions, new accomplishments and how quickly he is growing into being a little man.
3rd Place: Scarlett
Proud Parents: Dennis and Amy Burke
Community: Winter Springs
What are some of Scarlett’s favorite things? Avocados, Jennay her blanket, blowing kisses, splashing in the water, laughing, climbing, opening/closing doors, and she loves her big sister Aislinn.
What is Scarlett’s most precious moment? When we pick Scarlett up from day care, as soon as she sees us her eyes light up, she claps and runs over to us with her hands in the air laughing and babbling. She wraps her arms around our legs to give us a big hug.
What is your favorite story? One morning, when she was first learning how to stand and pull herself up, we heard her calling to us. It sounded a little louder than normal. We looked at the baby monitor and realized she was standing in her crib and had opened the bedroom door. She was calling out to us that she was awake. Needless to say, that day we lowered her crib and moved it away from her reach.
