Guess Who's Turning 1?

I can hardly believe it's been a whole year (as of this Sunday) since we welcomed our little Panda Bear into the world. And in my absence from the blog, she's been doing all sorts of fun and wonderful things. Miranda has been taking a few steps here and a few steps there since the first week of February. She was doing three or four at a time, would decide that crawling was faster, and do that instead. Late last week, however, she started getting up to seven steps in before plopping down to crawl. And now, after a weekend of practice at Grandma and Grandpa's, she's hardly crawling at all! This girl is determined! Once she decides she wants to do something, she practices until she gets it right. So, she's walking all over the place. And yes, it's adorable (and no, we haven't gotten video...yet!) Miranda is also babbling. She "talks" all of the time. It sounds mostly like, "Dakaduga...." Conversational nonsense, BUT...yesterday, she clearly said, "Socks!" I was talking to her about taking her socks off, and she says, "Socks!" Adorable! We're planning on having her baptized on Sunday. I'm hoping that we can manage to not get sick. Not sure how likely that will be. Miranda is finally almost snot free. And Duncan will hopefully not pick anything up from school this week. It's good to want things, right?
