The Birthday Questionnaire

I started this little birthday questionnaire last year for Colin and I vowed to keep it going as long as he willingly participated. Once Sawyer is old enough to form adequate responses beyond "nummy," I'll carry on the tradition with him.

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing his answers this year and comparing them to last year's responses. Some haven't changed a bit, others have been enhanced, and some have changed completely. For easy comparison, last year's are in paretheses.

  1. I love it! I'll have to do something like this with our kids, too. I might do one this year for Sam based on what I think he'd say, since I'm not sure I could get him to sit still long enough to actually answer questions. Although do I really want to document for all time that his favorite food is a hot dog?

  2. I love this!! Clearly he's into coloring now : )

    I hope you believe that immitation is the most sincere form of flattery when I copy this for use with Anna : )

    1. Pa-leese! I totally copied it from someone else, so I certainly don't mind you using it too. I'm happy to help anyone make great memories (:

  3. I love that his fave restaurant is Bella Notte!

  4. What a fun idea! Colin seems like the coolest little kiddo! It will be so fun to look back on all these one day, when he's grown.
