The weather is finally spring-like around here and we're ready to be outdoors and what happens? You catch a cold. Luckily the worst of it seems to be your endless running nose. After a day or two of occasionally sitting still for a change, you seem back to full capacity running, dancing, climbing and trouble-making!

|spinning and spinning and spinning around in circles until...|
|...you can't stand any more and fall down awkwardly|
You also continue to be interested in flowers like mommy. You smelled any you got near enough to, and you tried to repair them by putting fallen petals back on poppies or sticking dandelions we picked back in the ground. You also kept blowing dandelion puffs even though you were several feet away from them--so cute!
We have this cool weeping birch tree in the yard that has branches drooping so low even you need to crouch to get under them. Inside the dome created by these branches is a nice shady space with a greater concentration of dandelions. It's such a fun area for you (and mommy and daddy) to explore.
Speaking of food, you have really been enjoying 'cooking' lately. Pretty much every day when mommy is in the kitchen making dinner you have to be at my feet with a mixing bowl, a spatula and whatever bits of food I give you to mix around. Tonight you really outdid yourself, though. When Auntie Rhi was preparing the Brussels sprouts for cooking, you sat on her lap and really, truly helped. You took each sprout out of the box, peeled off some of the outer leaves and handed them to her for trimming. What a good helper!
Well, mommy needs to go get some rest. Another day of chasing after you awaits! Love you!
