Laurel is now old enough that it's hard to get all of her pictures onto one page. So we had to split it into two. You can, of course, go back to her old page, and see lots of other pictures.
Laurel is now almost two and a half years old. She's eagerly awaiting the arrival of her new baby brother or sister (we think it will be a brother but you never know...). She really enjoys playing with her friends, and she loves watching movies like Winnie the Pooh. Recently she's also watched Sleeping Beauty and Bambi. She got a play kitchen for her birthday and it is one of her favorite toys. She also likes playing with her Duplos and with all of her dolls. One of her favorite activities is drawing with crayons (and markers when Mommy or Daddy will let her). She also likes when Mommy or Daddy read her books, and sometimes she tries to read books on her own, such as Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you See?. She also likes making up her own stories, and when she gets started spinning a yarn, you just have to sit back, relax, and let her go for a while.
Her new favorite food is a ham, cheese, peanut butter, and jelly sandwich. Sometimes she makes them on wheat bread, sometimes on crackers. She really likes making things herself. Whenever we make pancakes for breakfast, Laurel wants to help crack the egg and mix the ingredients. She especially likes helping with the chocolate chips.
