Almost 18 months!

As time goes by, I am getting slower and slower at updating the blog, but by no means does that reflect the rate of Mira's changes. With each day she says more words and impresses us with new skills! She is brimming with playful curiosity and personality, and has been starting to give us a taste of that infamous toddler attitude. Among her new favorite phrases: "no, no, no, no," as in "don't pick me up," or "don't even try to change my diaper!" And "down, down, down, down," as in "sit down and read me this book now," or "take me out of this highchair right now!" If recent experiences are any sign, we sure have our work cut out for us! Toddler battles aside, Mira is a smart, beautiful, wonderful kid. We feel so lucky to be her parents! Some recent pictures and videos for you to enjoy....

Speaking of pumpkins... Mira was a very cute pumpkin for Halloween

What a summer!! Finally more pictures!!

It has been one heck of a summer! We've been so busy for the last few months that the blog has been neglected a bit--but, fear not, we've got a fresh batch of pictures for you to enjoy! A recap of some of the events that have kept us busy over the last three months: we went camping in Big Sur at the end of June, we went to Elk Grove for the 4th of July, we saw lots of family and friends in Chicago/Madison for our July wedding, Mira had various play dates with her friends Eli, Milo and Calvin, and finally in August she started walking! She definitely keeps us on our toes as she entertains herself by walking from room to room to room. She's an absolute delight!

Camping in Big Sur. She played with Eli, ate some sand, and we enjoyed our new tent (thanks to the Lundins!)

In Elk Grove for the Cedarview Block party with the Williamsons and the Raimondos. Mira LOVED the bounce house!

With good friends Taylor, Anna and Mae in Madison. What beautiful girls!

It was hot in Madison... Mira was naked almost the entire time!

Summertime fun

Mira loves life! Whether she's playing inside or outside splashing in the pool--she finds a way to enjoy herself! A few pictures to demonstrate:

Mira gardening.

Mira got her hands on an avocado and throughly enjoyed making a nice mess of it!
