And we're all so busy -- but happy, too. Miran is getting really old. Mentally, physically . . . he's definitely a toddler now more than a baby. He now says several words, some more consistently than others: Mama, Dada, Nana, chair, book, apple, banana, pear, flower (new today!), bee, tree, case, and others. He understands so much, follows directions, and really interacts. He likes to stack things, put things in and take things out of containers, read books, and run up and down the nursery -- "romping," as we call it. A big, strong, healthy, sweet, willful, intelligent little boy!
