Cute Baby of the Month

Name: Sasha

Birthdate: March 18, 2017

Favorite pastime: Lots of things make Sasha flash her gummy smile: Being with her brother, Charlie; munching on zucchini; going on the swings; and "reading" books. She’s fascinated by her cat, Michael, and the feeling seems to be mutual. Sasha’s eyes light up and she gasps with excitement every time she sees someone she loves.

If you would like your baby or toddler (ages 6 months to 24 months, please) featured in Tot Tips, email a photo and important stats to contactus@washingtonparent.net.
