Loreta Mae

This is Loreta Mae. We call her Loree. She has freckles. Lots of freckles. Click on her picture to get the total freckled, blue-eyed experience. And see a glimpse of our future in orthodontia.

She is the youngest and loves Nana. Don't believe me? My Mother's Day card this year read:

Happy Mother's Day I love Nana.

I'm OK with this. I like that my kids get special time alone with the G.P.'s. The only drawback is the deprogramming period after being under the influence of a doting Nana. She doesn't get strawberries on her waffles every morning here...she doesn't get her nails done with polka dots and a top coat. These are special Nana things and she is a lucky girl. Thank you, Nana. But stay off of my Mother's Day card!

Loree likes to play with Barbies, swim and her favorite show is Hannah Montana. Oh! And she loves Nana. She is crazy about her two sisters and one of her brothers. The other brother, Aaron, well...they tolerate each other. When I first brought her home from the hospital, he would hide her in the closet and shut the door. Another time, Aaron stood on the back of the couch behind her baby swing and peed on her head every time it swung back. Nice...

Things Loree says:

"Mom! My heart is beeping so fast!"

"Mom! Don't get soap in my eyes or I'll go blonde!"

Me: "Good night, Loree."
Loree: "Good night. Can we call Nana?"

You were right -- lots of freckles! :) She sounds so sweet...someday you'll be Nana to her children and you can tell them all about when their mama was a little girl!

What a cutie! I love her devotion to Nana. I hope I get one just like her (long, long, long from now) when I have grandkids!
