A good number of you were there 6 years ago when not so little M came into the world. Her birth was quite the spectacle with friends and relatives dropping by. And even a stranger or two. She did manage to come out and my how she has grown these last few years. The ultrasound taken the day before she was born made me gasp "I'm going to give birth to my husband!" Not only does she look like him, she acts like him, too. Both wake up with a grump and a grumble, want everything to be fair, are awful patients, and are incredibly shy. Miriam is also incredibly sweet and guileless. She also has a near photographic memory, an amazing recall of people and events. We love this little girl and we're glad she's a part of our family. Her sister, by the way, absolutely worships her.
First birthday! Were you there?
2 1/2 years old here. Is that Robbie's knee? M is wearing the outfit I was blessed in.Back from Taiwan with cousins. Her new baby sister. She was and still is an amazing older sister. I often envy the girls and their relationship (all brothers for me).
M's tanjoukai (birthday party at school). She was so shy, and had this face on practically the whole time, but actually enjoyed herself immensely.
