38 WEEKS AND COUNTING…
Another few weeks, is no big deal, we will make it, all of us! Me, you and Daddy… together soon!
Dear Mom and Dad,
38 weeks have passed since I came to Camp Nana… and only a few more, and I will be back in your arms…OR you may find that I am in the arms NOT SO MUCH since I am a CRAWLING MACHINE! You will be so happy, that seeing me and holding me, will get you through the last portion of your deployment.
I know you must be excitied. I can’t wait to celebrate the holidays with you.(No matter what day you actually come) WE WILL DO IT ALL ON YOUR “R&R”, my first birthday – a Thanksgiving feast… it will be like a fairytale, and IT WILL BE… All About Me! (my favorite part 🙂 )
Tonight we met Uncle David, Aunt Kris, Cuz Bryan Cuz Steven, with Papa and GG-ma, and celebrated Aunt Mikayla’s 23rd birthday together. It was so much fun. I was – adorable! I love going visiting and I was a charmer. I am good so long as I can still see the campers or Nana and Poppy, and when I do, I smile for everyone. I hope you will not be sad if I am a little shy when you come, it is a phase, that I hope passes soon, and with me, you never know. I only mention it, so you don’t think I am silly when you come. I do after all, spend a lot of time with ‘the singing 🙁 Nana” and so …. it is sometimes hard when I am tired or not familiar to just hang with someone who doesn’t sing like Nana, or isn’t fat and squishy…. I mean, you know how you grown ups tell me that sometimes people cry when they are happy… and it is a lot for me to understand… well, us babies, we like soft and squishy, and being rocked to by Nana’s and chubsters like Nana… it’s not till we get older that we realize they are just plain “fat”.
So either Nana needs to shed a few to get me acclimated to you… or you need to put on a hundred or so pounds so it feels like Nana (NOT)! Anyway, I only mention it to prepare you a bit…. just in case my ‘phase’ is not completely gone by the time we see each other… ONE THING FOR SURE, this phase, well, IT WILL PASS, and before you know it, my Skinny Minnie Mom’s arms will be the most comfortable place in the world for me to be! You will need to just love me, and hold me as much as humanly possible! Trust me, I learn so FAST, and I bet the minute I feel you playing with my little hands, like you did before, well Mom, I bet that will help bunches….
I had an awesome day Mom and Dad, my Great Great Aunt had surgery today, which me and the rest of camp hope went well. We wait to hear, but since Nana has the bad latex allergy, Poppy will go see her tomorrow or Sunday depending how she feels. We are thinking of her though. I ate carrots and turkey with sweet potato for lunch, and at the restaurant with the campers I had chicken with rice with peas with bits of bread and bits of cucumber! I still love my ‘bob’ which is the main part of my meals, but I love trying things, and am such a good girl. Until tomorrow, I hope you remember, how much I love you, and look forward to our upcoming visit, also know, I am YOUR LITTLE MISS ADORABLE, YOUR SWEET DAUGHTER,
