It has been a long time since we have posted anything. Apologies. It has been a busy spring for us. However, we did find time to get away in March and to have an Easter Egg hunt for Lotty.
The trip in March was to Whidbey Island, to a rental house near Useless Bay. Lotty had a good time walking around. Like a true Northwesterner, Lotty didn't seem to mind that it was in the mid 40s with a 15-20 mph wind; the beach was still fun. We didn't stay long.
Lotty took to the Easter egg hunt really well. She got some help from her Mama, but really enjoyed herself. She also spent a little time with Grandpa Derksen. Lotty has been enjoying "picking weeds." This mostly involves playing in the dirt, but she has fun and gets outside. She really enjoys being outside, especially when it is sunny out.
Over the last few months, Lotty has changed from a baby into a little girl. In fact, yesterday she helped Paul wash the Mazda. She helps unload the dishwasher and can help set the table. She is starting to say her alphabet.
