"Baby Love!"

We had the cutest e-mail in our KTVB News inbox yesterday, and when I read it, I just HAD to share it with all of you.

It was from Heidi Critcher of Kuna... she wanted to tell us all about her baby girl - and how she just loves to watch KTVB Meteorologist Rick Lantz.

Dear Channel 7,

My 9-month-old baby absolutely loves Rick Lantz's weather report. For three months now, she has pulled herself up to the T.V. to watch everytime Rick Lantz is on.

The first time she pulled herself up - it was to watch the weather report with Rick!
She will sometimes even come from another room after hearing his voice and the theme music!

We have told her many times it's a NO-NO, she only does it when Rick is on! If Rick Lantz could get the opportunity to see his "youngest fan" in action that would make our day.

I e-mailed Heidi (the baby fan's mom) and found out her name is Chloe, and here's another picture of her so we can see her adorable face! What a cutie....

Baby Chloe

PS: We forwarded this e-mail to Rick, so I'm sure he got a kick out of Baby Chloe too! I thought you'd all enjoy it as much as we did here in the newsroom...
