My DVD and Me…
Dear Mom and Dad,
I am thinking about you both. Every day, and I mean every single day, Nana plays me a DVD of the two of you. It has photos in it from the first tour of duty you did in Iraq. It has photos of you both with me. She plays it each day, and I watch it, while she says… MOM-MA, DAD-DA, BABY… and hopes that by doing this I can be familiar with your faces. She knows how I am being a bit shy with people lately, AND TRULY HOPES THAT PHOTOS OF YOU BOTH WILL HELP US WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER for our visit. Once you are back home for good, I will have a life time to see, hear and touch you. I can’t wait. Today she took photos of me watching my MOM AND DAD DVD. Here I am waiting for it to start! Not much into the words, and far more interested in the beast and Nana…. but…. when the photos start… LOOK OUT… I inch my way closer and closer and can’t take my eyes off of Mom and Dad!
I am WAITING for it to start…. Here she comes… hey momma!
I watch this every morning… and sometimes at night. I start my day with mom and dad, and the song reminding me that you are both here with me… even though we are far apart. And yes, she cries every time. Silly Nana, she is a sap. She should know we are almost through this and soon it will be over… and we get to begin our lives together. When that happens, she will still cry, and pull that ‘HAPPY TEARS’ thingy I bet!
If you notice, I am glued to the faces and watch very intently…. it’s true!
Notice… I’m not watching the beast or Nana, just my mom and dad!
When it is done, I hope she will play it again, and sometimes she does.
It may be silly, and it may not help me to know your faces, but Nana says it is worth a try and I really do enjoy it.
I was so good today. Still teething something fierce, but so sweet and so good… my clothes even said I was sweet today.. Berry Sweet!
Me looking sweet, and adorable, AS USUAL… pondering what I will write in my next love letter to you maybe… or maybe just relaxing at camp. Either way, I am kickin’ back a bit, before my trip to see Great Grandma Sally and Grumpy. And speaking of GREAT GRANDPARENTS..
TODAY WAS GREAT PAPA ALANS BIRTHDAY, and all of us campers are meeting him for a birthday dinner tomorrow. I hope he had a good day today and know that my mommy and daddy will be wishing him the same all the way from the land of sand. Maybe I can wrap my DVD up take it over to his house, and we can all watch it over cake and ice cream? Or he can do like I do, and close his eyes, and make a wish… and one day soon…ALL OF US WILL GET TOGETHER, AND EAT GUILLIANNA BIRTHDAY CAKE…. (she said wishing, and hoping)
It could happen. I know we can’t write when and where or how the troops move, but I hope that my mom and dad can get a visit back here in the states around my first birthday! It could happen – I am just sayin’
Until tomorrow, mom and dad, I am as always, your LITTLE MISS ADORABLE, your daughter,
