Rose still heavily favors her left hand. Though she does seem able to do everything equally well with the right, she definitely prefers the left. I read somewhere that babies generally switch handedness multiple times before the age of two and finally settle into a preference around two or three. I have yet to see evidence of Rose favoring her right hand ever. It will be interesting to see what her final decision is. Here are some pictures of her lefty behaviors.

Even though the weather hasn't been particularly nice, it's supposedly spring, so Rose and I have been taking a lot of outings to the parks in the neighborhood. Rose loves to go across the street to Jamison Park where we see how many doggies we can spot, and hope to make a chance encounter with a few of them. Rose eagerly pulls my hands to walk her towards anything on four legs, woofing the entire walk. It's questionable whether we'll make it to the dog before it's on its way. If not, there are lots of birds to talk about. Rose also loves to visit the bear. She growls at it from across the street as soon as she sees it. When we arrive, she likes to point out the bears eyes, nose and ears. She touches the smooth rock, then the rough rock, then the smooth rock.
