Miriam is One

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.

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.
