When you're happy and you know it, clap your hands!

Lots fun and exciting changes for Mira the last few weeks! She now has two upper teeth, but not two front teeth, she has one one front tooth and one "fang," both on the left side. We're hoping she'll get the other front teeth soon so she doesn't have "snaggle tooth" for much longer. In the last two weeks she has learned to communicate with us by using lots of gestures. She can clap, give "high five," wave hi/bye, blow kisses, and shake her head "no." She is brimming with personality, and her use of the new gestures is really hilarious! Here are some pictures from our recent adventures; camping, playing around the house, and playing at the playground. [We are having a weird formatting issue, so the text isn't lining up with the pictures properly, but hopefully you can figure it out.]

Mira's first camping trip in Big Basin! She did great! We had a really fun time!













Hanging around the house being cute. Wearing her monkey "babylegs" leggings--a great invention!

Banana bread, aka Munchie Poo Poo, aka Pumpkin head

Mira is a busy, busy girl these days. She keeps us running from room to room as she cruises around trying to put things in her mouth that don't belong there (dog food, shoes, rugs, etc...)! She is currently a member of the "one-top-front-tooth" club, and we are awaiting the appearance of several other top teeth. Since we have been so busy going out to do new activities with Mira instead of playing at home, we only have recent iPhone pictures. Here's a sampling of a few fun ones...

Swinging at the park near our house.

This cute one was taken by Wujek Marcin on a recent trip to San Francisco. She sometimes has quite the devilish grin!
