March Fun at 18+ months

March was a great month. We had a bunch of birthdays to celebrate and some good weather too! We spent a lot of time outdoors with Lorelei who LOVED getting wet and dirty while helping Daddy with yard chores. Easter was a blast too. Lorelei loved her dress and said "pretty" every time she caught a glimpse of herself in a reflection. She enjoyed her Easter Basket full of her favorite snacks and also loved her new gardening tools, sidewalk chalk, and bubble bath. She received an adorable swim suite ensemble from Grandma and Grandpa Baker along with new books and toys...and her "Easter basket" from Grandma and Grandpa Barrow was a red wagon. Daddy took her for a spin right away and she was all smiles. Lola still enjoys hanging with her doggies and feeding them even when she is not supposed to. She says more and more every day and loves to tease us by calling us "Matt" and "Dana" to get a reaction. She is obsessed with stuffed animals and wants to hug every single one she sees. She says, "hold you?" when she wants to snuggle someone and offers hugs and kisses galore. Her favorite foods right now are apples, mixed veggies, chicken nuggets, veggie dogs, cheerios in milk and olives. She is totally obsessed with any kind of shoe whether they belong to her, are sitting on a shelf in the store or are sitting on the living room floor. She loves to put them on and slide around in them and insists that we put on our shoes if we are barefoot. Lola just started counting to TEN thanks to Papa Baker but she often forgets "five". She loves to sing and do the motions to pat-a-cake. Her hair is finally getting some length to it and it has a lot of curls! She wakes up with an afro after every nap. What a doll and we love her to pieces (all 21 pounds of her). March was good to us.

Here are some photos from March:
