To celebrate the kids birthdays, we had a party on April 18th - Grandma Lawson, Great Grandpa & Great Grandma, & Cousin Carrie made the trek up from Milwaukee to celebrate. Thanks for celebrating with us - we had so much fun! William had fun helping to make his "Thomas pinata" and really enjoyed eating the Winnie-the-Pooh cake.

Miriam's Birthday was on Divine Mercy Sunday this year - both kids had birthdays on great feast days! How quickly this year has gone by - and Miriam has some great accomplishments already - she started walking at 10 months & 1 week (earlier than her brother) and to great fanfare as it was right in front of Grandma Lawson while we were visiting in Milwaukee. She is also already communicating well - says mama & dada at appropriate times & to the correct person (though sparingly) and can sign milk, more & hurt. She has a climb every mountain approach to life and enjoys standing on chairs "look mom no hands" and has to do everything big brother is doing.
