Holding my toys… and everything in the mouth!
PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK… THIS IS THE VIDEO THAT WE PLAY AT CAMP NANA… SO I CAN SEE MY MOM AND MY DAD…. when it is done, hit the “back” button and you might get to see pictures of me from today!
Dear Mom and Dad,
Today is Tuesday, and I just had to tell you, that I am holding my toys now and love things with different textures. I love the little soft rattles, shaped like a bunny and a turtle. I love Julibear, and when I see my bottle I put both hands on it and get so excited. Everything goes right to my mouth….
I am being so good at camp, and always am a great model for Nana to get photos for you. You are going to be so very proud of me.
I think that my pediatrician will be very happy with me when I go. My tummy is doing better, and I am growing so much. I do all the things a four month old should even though I should only be doing things of a three month old! My “corrected” age…. would be three months…. but since I was in such a rush to have my ‘MEET AND GREET’ with mommy and daddy, I came one entire month early. My pediatrician will love that I am acting so mature…. and it will be good to avoid more tests on my belly. I am just plain HAPPY about that.
Today we stayed in, AGAIN, but it gives me a chance to finish off the TEXAS/MICHIGAN/CALIFORNIA or Texigania Cold that I had. It was a doosey… wasn’t it Mimi… hope daddy is better now too.
Poppy went to the post office today to deliver one of the few last care packages for Uncle Nick since he soon cannot get any more mail… but my friends at the Post Office need not worry, because as soon as my mommy and daddy have an address, we will send them care packages too. I told Nana, send daddy some of my delicious formula… she said he would prefer cookies… what ever.. I said send daddy and mommy something of mine with my baby smell on it… she thought I was meaninga diaper… GROSS Nana! So daddy do not be surprised if in the mail one day, you open a box in front of all your Army guy friends, and there is a pink blanky, that smells just like me. And when you sleep at night, you can rub it up against your nose, and you will feel me right there by your side.
Don’t you worry though and don’t think Nana will ALLOW YOU TO MISS A THING, her and that camera.. well they are like INSEPARABLE… If I burp she wants to “catch” it…. Geez…., I am told, that while I am growing, and Nana is just trying to keep you up to speed, there is sooooo much growing I will do AFTER you return… I will have only just begun to make both of your worlds revolve around my GROWING…. just wait and see… I will still like bedtime stories, I will want to ride on daddy’s shoulders, and hold mommy’s hand…. I will want to play in sand, and build castles, and I will want to swim and ride on toys… and I will want you to blow on my food when it is hot, and I will need you to rock me, and love me 24/7 this job of taking care of my princess needs, well you will have my lifetime to deal with all that I will bring to you and daddy… Nana says, 3 months, 5 months, 1 year, 4 years, 6 years, 13 years, 15 years, 23 years, and so on and so on, us kids, keep the mommy’s and the daddy’s of the world BUSY, and you will one day, look back like she does and wonder where did a lifetime go… right now… she and Poppy are trying hard to keep you up to speed…. in the know and a part of my every single day, and the little details that mommy’s and daddy’s love about wee ones, but in the bigger picture, you have me and my princess drama…. always… we will get through this blip of time, and get to the life you both have worked so hard for… soon. Love Little Miss Adorable, your daughter,
