Latest stats

Wow, it's been a long time since we posted here. Sorry! The latest stats are that Miran is growing just fine and remains above average for both height and weight.

First Movie

We took Miran to see The Lorax today -- his first movie experience. My dad, his wife, and my youngest sister went along, too. Well, he loved it -- watched intently, asked intelligent questions to try to understand the plot, and commented at the end, "I like watching a show on the biggest screen ever." I'm sure most of the story was way over his head, but he still stayed focused the whole time. A great day! (Yesterday was nice, too -- a very long walk through Ft. Tryon Park, all the way to Inwood Hill Park. Miran's favorite part? Picking dandelions and blowing all the seedlings away.)

Kieryn and Miran were on the bus home and stuck in traffic.

Miran: The bus is a statue.

Kieryn: Why is that?

Miran: Because it's not moving.

Daddy: Miran, come get dinner!
Miran: But I'm still playing with my airplane with the tiger in it. Please leave me alone. (said plaintively, not rudely)

Where did he get that from? LOL

Potty trained!

Not only does he always use the potty now (no accidents in at lest a couple of weeks), but he goes to the bathroom, gets his step-stool, turns on the light, pulls down his pants, gets on the toilet, does his business, pulls his pants back up, and flushes -- all by himself!
