Playing chase with dad

Lately, Muira and I have been having fun games of chase.  She has just about worn a path in the hall with the amount of times back and forth!

Summertime fun with the family

We have enjoyed the summer immensely! We are fortunate to be teachers and have the summer off. It has been fun spending time with Muira and relaxing before heading into a busy fall, back to work and with 2 kids! Some highlights were our trip up north to visit family. It was fun seeing Muira play with her cousins and we were excited to meet the newest member on the Bornstein side... Lillian Peyton, who will be only a couple months older than our new one. It is great to have cousins so close in age.

I can't believe how quickly she is growing up.  I love how she points everyone out in the room, even our friends that she doesn't see that often...  So fun!

Busy and Moving

We've neglected our blog for quite some time. But, alas, FINALLY, we are on summer break and ready to relax, swim in the pool, and bake this second baby.
Muira update:
She is on the move and so full of life. She has turned into such an adventurous little lady. Once she got the hang of walking, she wanted to go higher and started climbing. She throws herself down slides and would jump into any body of water if we'd let her. She is starting to communicate more with the few signs she has learned and has a few babbles we can understand like poppa, momma, hi and today she said baby. She is such a joy and we are looking forward to spending summer with her. We're so thankful for jobs that allow us that precious time.
So here she is now.......
Our second official camping trip. It was a bit colder than we expected

 Desperately waiting for the sun to touch our campsite:)
Fishing with Poppa at Kennedy Meadows

And now for one of Muira's favorite activities....climbing into her drawers and taking everything out.

She makes keeping a clean house a slight challenge:).

She loves playing on our patio and likes to help dad water the plants

Enjoys climbing up on the rocking chair and can spend lots of time looking through (and tearing up) books
We love our Muira!
Still a champion eater!

Muira's first Birthday

We are having a bigger birthday celebration this coming weekend up in Sonora, but Muira and papa had some pie with a candle in it to celebrate on the actual day while mama was at work.... so fun!

We also had some fun playing around as she was learning how to feed me Cherrios.

Saturday Morning Praise times

Bout time for an update... the girl is almost 1!!!

We figured it was time to show you how Muira has changed since our last post was about 6 months ago. She is so much bigger and more active than ever. We have enjoyed this stage so much and have seen how quickly she moves from one milestone to the next.
Still such a great eater but now she's using her hands so the mess is on the floor and her seat and not as much on her mouth.
Thanksgiving and part of Christmas were spent in Woodland where Muira started to crawl and stand up. Here she is with her cousin Serin getting ready for the caroling party.
She continues to use an open mouth to show excitement but now it is accompanied with screams and shouts.
It is such a joy to see Papa Tom with his two littlest granddaughters.
