Monkey asks – Mad Blog Awards

A couple of days ago we discovered we were lucky enough to have made it through to the final five in Best Baby Blog for the Mad Blog Awards. We would like to thank everybody who nominated us. We have tried putting in to words how much being nominated means to us but it always ends up sounding really gushy. We started this blog not only to document our family as it grew, but also to raise awareness and visibility of same sex couples. Just making it through to the final five is huge for us. We’ve had the most fantastic year so far and winning an award at the Mad Blog Awards really would be the cherry on the chocolate covered cake.

Now we wouldn’t be up for this award if it wasn’t for our fantastic son, who really is the light in our lives. So I’ll leave it up to him to ask you just the smallest request.
