In case you're wondering how loud our house is on a normal basis, here's a representative sample:
I was lying in bed reading one Saturday, and Miriam came in to play. Before I knew it, we had created a game where she brushed my face with a hand broom and I squealed, at which point she burst into adorable giggles.
Miriam talks so much these days (and says such funny stuff) but it's really hard to get videos of. So after the squealing video, I tried to get her to talk a little bit. I'm going to try to make more of these in the future.
