Laranda is interactive and playful, and is happiest in someone’s arms. She’s also spunky and bouncy, and we’re so grateful to be able to care for her.


Recent Updates

Laranda enjoyed spending the holidays making new crafts in preschool. She had the opportunity to make handprint ornaments in class with her teacher, and delighted in the feeling of her hand squishing into the dough. It is a joy to see Laranda explore new things!

Laranda recently started preschool and loves it! Craft time is one of her favorite parts, where she gets to discover paint, glue, glitter, and so much more. Her teacher is filled with joy every time Laranda shines her beautiful smile while dabbing with a paintbrush, or sticking pieces of paper together. We are thrilled to have Laranda in class!

Laranda recently turned 4 years old! For her birthday she enjoyed cupcakes, friends, bubbles, and music! Laranda’s sweet personality and infectious joy keep us smiling, and we love to celebrate her.

Laranda recently helped us celebrate her nurse’s birthday! She loved playing with all the balloons, surrounding herself with them and beaming! Laranda loves her nurse very much, and had the best time celebrating her.

Laranda loves music, especially musical toys. Whenever a friend or nanny is playing with a toy that makes music, she’ll quickly go over to them in her walker. We love playing with Laranda and watching her interests blossom!

Laranda looked adorable in her Christmas antlers! She wore the biggest smile as she danced and giggled along to Christmas carols. Laranda’s joy is wonderful, and we loved celebrating Christmas with her!
