Bevo Bash 2015

Spot Mr Z. Collins

Shoes

Miriam likes her shoes. She got several pairs in a huge bag of hand me downs. Her favorites are silver and sparkly. Recently, she has been picking them up, then she walks over and hands them over. Usually, I sit on the floor, and she turns around and backs up into my lap.

Recently she has abandoned busy Dada in favor of her big brother.....

Bowl A Thon Success!!

Together Sarah and I raised a bunch of money, and here I am bowling with Miri.

Little Tired Little Sick

Home - sick but adorable

Miri was sick a few weeks ago. Here she is, just so tired she collapsed back in her ball pit to rest.

around and around



Miri just learned to spin in circles, achievement unlocked!

She is not a fan of instructions. She prefers the stand n wiggle than the sit n spin!

Miriam's words

So Miriam can now recognize a bunch of words and even say a few. But English mastery is not quite there yet.
Some of Miri can say are;
Up
More (with baby signing too, thanks to the other daycare)
Please
Bubbles
Belly button
Eye
Dada
Mama
Baba
Dzadza
Water

She knows:
Spin (video coming soon)
Down
Sit
Chin
Mouth
Nose
Shoulders
Knees

Scene. Miri in the tub. Me supervision.
'Hey Sarah, I see what you mean about those spots on her thigh. Must be something she got from daycare.'
Miri reaches up and pokes me in the eye.
'Eye!'
'No Miri, not eye. Thigh!'

Zachary can cartwheel!





Zachary was mucking around sliding around and trying to donkey kick... AND THEN HE DID A CARTWHEEL. This was about his third or fourth cartwheel. It was fantastic, he was so thrilled. (I was pretty damn impressed)
