Matt at 22 months is a very active little boy. Yesterday was cool but sunny so we spent a little time in the backyard. He has a playhouse there so yesterday we played "peek-a-boo" there.

Tyler is three weeks old today. He is small and slippery but Tom does a pretty good job of bathing him in the kitchen sink.

Happy Grandma!
Today I flew from Michigan to Tom and Kelly's house to help for a couple of weeks while Kelly is recovering from the C section delivery of Tyler Anderson. It is such a pleasure to spend time with Matthew and Tyler and their parents. Mostly I will help with Matthew who is 22 months old, very active, and exploring his surroundings. Tyler as a new baby has a much simpler schedule.Tyler Anderson is two weeks old.

Orchids in Bloom
My orchids have been sleeping for a few months and just now began to bloom. They're reacting to the longer days and increased sunlight in my eastern window. Orchids are so beautiful and the blooms last many weeks.

It's Spring!
Winter was especially long and snowy this year with many days and nights inside the house. Finally, at long last, spring is here! Today the sun is shining and it's very mild outside. My crocuses have made their annual spring appearance on the sunny side of my house and it makes me feel so good!

Last weekend we visited Scarlett and her parents. It was a rainy, cold day in the Chicago area so I took Scarlett to the library while her parents were working. The library is a wonderful place to go, and especially to go there with a grandchild! There are computers available with wonderful materials even for children as young as Scarlett. She demonstrated impressive mouse skills to me!

The library has puppets available for children to play with and Scarlett quickly got into it.

I always enjoy reading books with children.

Here she is just after her bath and shampoo.

Just recently I've been having some problems with Blogger. I had tried to improve the blog's appearance, and in the process I temporarily messed it up. I was writing posts but wasn't able to post them. I have lots of new things to post about (new grandson! Tyler Anderson V. born March 10th. Mom and baby doing well.) Blogging is a challenge but I keep working on it until at last I figure it out. Right now it seems to be going better, so please look for most postings to follow!
