Autumnal Leaves and Sunshine

Hard at work

After the evening constitutional of running around in circles to avoid B.E.D. Miriam decided she had some work to do. Pulled out Zs little old laptop toy, and lay on the floor to type, and put in a CD to play some music, and check her email.

Looping around

The advantage in our new house... 

Testing the fire ladder


Gymnastics for the gold

Zachary was inspired by the summer olympics. He would like to win a gold medal, who wouldn't! So he sensibly asked what event we thought he would be good at. Given his mad climbing skills and upper body strength we suggested gymnastics. He had already been really engrossed with pommel and rings. So I found our local gym - Seattle Gymnastics Academy. Z has class once a week and comes away glowing. On a Saturday, the SGA has free time at the same time Mimi can indoor playground. So here she is running around enjoying herself. Once she is three she can start classes too. She can't wait.

Morning Commute With Miriam

Miriam: "Red, Orange, BLUE!"
Sarah:  "What, the traffic light? No, that's red, orange, green!"
Miriam: "NO! TREES!"
Sarah: "Oh. First they're green, then they're orange, then they're red."
Miriam: "YES! Trees!"
Sarah: "Yup. Look, just like that one."
Miriam: "Then what."
Sarah: "Then they fall off!"
Miriam: "Green, Orange, Red, THEN COCONUTS!"
Sarah:  "Sure, close enough."

We are settling in here, and will try and get some pictures and stories up.

But until then...


Miriam is having a very serious, very in control of the universe stage. She is happy to tell you where to go and what to do. And also? NO KISSES.

Which is surprisingly hard because she's adorable and a total clown and kissing her on the head is basically instinct. But of *course* we want to respect her wishes. And if you forget?
