Boys vs. Girls

Occasionally I get asked how similar Dutch & Ellis are in their personalities.  For the most part they are VERY similar.  Both are cuddlers who love to read & to learn.  Ellis is generally a quiet learner who observes and takes in everything, while Dutch is more vocal and desires to communicate about what he is learning.  Ellis' small personality has grown significantly over the past 6 months & she is pretty passive until she wants something and then she is sure to let you know.  She likes to sing and play tea party, but mostly just wants to play with anything Dutch is playing with (which usually is something related to firefighters- in fact, they both refer to Dutch and introduce him to others as "Fireman Dutch")  However, I think this series of pictures I ATTEMPTED to take before leaving for Christmas Eve service PERFECTLY illustrates their personality differences.  Ellis looks almost exactly the same in every picture, while Dutch, on the other hand, cannot contain his excitement and energy.  Going through pictures to write my post about Christmas just had me laughing so hard at these lol. Obviously Ellis just wants to eat her marshmallow & Dutch wants to dance & sing about Christmas lol
Let me show you what I'm talking about (and just for a point of reference I took all of these pictures in about 2 minutes lol):

It is so fun seeing kiddos personalities developing. Too funny about these Christmas pictures! I love how Dutch is striking a side pose in the last one!
