Dear Mom and Dad,
When you hold my hands, I can pull myself into a sitting position with my head perfectly strong and stable. I am right where I am supposed to be for my age developmentally, and you should be proud, because I am not only where I should be… I AM SO CUTE DOING JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING. Nana, while having slight bias, says, I am even cute when she has to change my special princess presents… now let’s just say, THAT IS REALLY CUTE… cuz I must also say, most everyone else here at camp…well they seem to think… that I don’t really smell like roses at ‘certain’ times… but Nana and I … we know better… I’m a rose!
Okay, so yesterday I talked all about gross doggy slobber, mud and slime, and today I am writing about princess presents that are rose-odoriffic…. probably not appropriate for the internet or a LOVE letter, but just tryin’ to share with ya’ll everything about me and my day. Pretty much that is my day… for now… but just wait when you get home, I will be ready for so much more. Now, my days, well it is like you guys…. you hurry up to get where you are, and then you sit a bit, eat a bit, SLEEP VERY LITTLE , have but a few moments of soldier privacy time, and then work work work… just like me, get up bright and early, hang out a bit, eat a bit, SLEEP VERY LITTLE, take care of all kinds of princess privacy stuff, and then I am…. workin it, workin it, workin it! Being cute and sweet. Nana and Poppy try really hard to make sure camp is fun though… and today was my first trip out of the house to an outdoor event. I went to see Dr. Randy and his daughter who was playing softball against Aunt Arrianna’s school. I was in my stroller, bundled up like Nanook of the North…but here is a photo of her being catcher… and also batting and getting on base!
So… yeah… we had a field trip… and it was pretty fun to get out of the house. We didn’t stay too long, since Nana didn’t want me to wake up and be hungry…. but thank you to Dr. Randy for having Poppy me and the girls for a bit… MY VERY FIRST SOFTBALL GAME! (even if sleeping and bundled for a snow storm)
I love you Mom and Dad!
So, even with so many similarities in our lives… and yeah, I am sure that while soldiering in Iraq is probably hard and stuff I just want you to know it doesn’t hold a candle to the real task of being your Little Miss Adorable, (always camera ready and looking so hmmm, shall we say A D O R A B L E – ) your daughter,
