Yes, we know the real reason you are visiting this page is to see pictures of wonderful baby Laurel. Laurel was born on April 22, 2001 in Fair Oaks Hospital in Fairfax, VA.
As of November 27th, Laurel weighed 21 pounds 4 ounces and measured 31 3/4 inches. Laurel has twelve teeth including four molars. Her canines are coming in now. She can walk, run and climb up on almost anything. Laurel can say over a hundred words though her favorite words are still "mommy", "dada", "elmo" and "okay". Her most recent accomplishment is learning to count to ten (with some help).
Laurel is very curious. She likes taking things out of purses and bags. She particularly likes credit cards. Laurel's favorite foods include smoothies, crackers (with peanut butter), cheese and, of course, ice cream. Laurel loves to be read to. Her current favorite book is Bunny Cakes. She loves to draw (often on herself), and she also loves to play on the computer. Her favorite computer games are Grandma and Me and Winnie the Pooh Toddler.
