Miriel has been adding a few new facial expressions to her repertoire lately. This one: "The Furrowed Brow"

We've been busy getting our house on the market (see it here) and haven't taken the time to blog.

I took a few photos while Gavin and Miriel were playing outside in Gavin's mustang today and in the bath tonight. They are enjoying playing together more and more and love each other so much. It makes my heart glad! Enjoy!

Oh, and the basic new things to blog about are that Gavin is reading very well - he 's read all of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (by Dr. Seuss) all by himself several times and pretty much reads whatever he sees. And Miriel is walking - she started about a week or maybe a week and a few days ago and is really good at it. Hopefully more on those later...

Happy Birthday Miriel!

A year ago today my sweet baby girl was born. I can truly say it has been a delightful year of enjoying her easy, smiling disposition and watching her grow into the fun and curious little girl she is. Parenting two children rather than one has certainly had its challenging moments, but the change has come so much more easily for us than when Gavin was born.

We celebrated today with a little cake, a few gifts and some decorations. Balloons are Miriel's very favorite thing right now, so we made sure to get a few. Without further ado, the sequence of birthday events:
