My heart belongs to you

Miranda spontaneously made a heart on the floor last week with some orange ribbon. That's a pretty good job!

Learning her letters

Miranda was hanging out with me last week while I checked email. She asked if she could do "some writing of her own", so I said sure and pulled up a new document. I asked what she wanted to write, and she said, "I think I need to write Horsey's name." (Horsey is one of her "children", a favorite stuffed animal.) She typed the following letters, naming each one as she typed:

I think it's interesting, the letters with which she particularly identifies. She's always liked O, Q, X, and Z.

Adventures with H1N1 house arrest

Miranda was diagnosed with "presumed but not confirmed" H1N1 last week, so she & Billy have spent most of the subsequent time under house arrest. Because of my pregnancy and asthma, I was voted off the island until her fever's gone. Billy's been good to send pictures of how they're spending their time.

IT prodigy?

Miranda is cultivating a budding artistic talent. Here's a drawing from today, which she says is "a picture of Daddy." She's just recently started drawing little people. She did one of the new baby, which I'll try to post soon.
