Update and pics

Well, this past few weeks has had it's ups and downs! It began last Friday with me (Michele) going to the ER with horrible, terrible, excruciating right back pain. Ended up being...a kidney stone! I had heard that kidney stones were painful, but I never imagined the pain would be that bad. It was seriously as bad as natural childbirth. Seriously. After a bunch of drugs, an overnight stay in the hospital, and two minor procedures with general anesthesia, I am on the mend now!

A friend from work, Shari, is going to Russia in a few weeks to pick up her son, Hughes. Her blog is on the side if you want to check it out. She is going for pick-up on her own and was trying out different baby carriers. She decided on the Ergo and I brought Miranda to the store as her practice baby! Here's a pic of Miranda and Shari. Miranda loved being carried in the Ergo.
Here's a few pics of Miranda and Me playing in her room before I went to the ER! This past week I haven't been doing too much playing on the floor!

She's all over the place!

This past month has shown Miranda climbing, cruising, and even taking up to 7 steps on her own! She REALLY wants to be able to keep up with her big brothers, I think! We have a big bay window in our front room and she's learned to climb up on it and stand at the window. She loves it when the boys or the neighbor kids come over and talk to her through the window. Here are some pics of her at the window I love this next picture because it totally shows Miranda's personality. She is really always smiling and laughing. Her brothers have a lot of fun making her laugh

Thanks Carrianne

On Saturday I received a most thoughtful surprise gift in the mail from my friend Carrianne. I cried when I opened it. I will post a few pictures, but the pictures will NOT do it justice. It is this beautiful necklace with a picture of Miranda on one side and Mitchell and Max on the other. I love it! Carrianne has a photography business and she is expanding into jewelry. She said she should have some information posted soon on her blog (see the link to her blog on the right side of this blog).And here is Miranda and the boys playing with a diaper box. What fun!
