Some strange things are happening these days, and I wanted to tell you about them. First, my mouth has been hurting, and then all of these hard things popped out and it quit hurting. I guess these hard things are good, because they help me eat better, but I hope I don't get any more because it sure does make me uncomfortable while they are getting here!
Next, I have no idea what is going on lately. My mom and dad took me to this fun place with tables set up and pretty balloons and other kids. We ate cookies and drank lemonade and I was having fun playing with the balloons until my mom just picked me up and put me in this old man's lap. He had a loooong white beard, glasses, a red suit and a big belly. She just sat me on his lap and backed away! I got so mad and I told her all about it, too, until she finally came and picked me back up. I mean, what was I supposed to do?? I didn't even know that man!
Then, my mom and dad put a tree in our living room! A tree, like the ones outside kind of, except it doesn't have any leaves on it. It has sparkly lights, and pretty stuff hanging off of it, like balls, and snowmen, and even a picture or two of me! They put a blanket under it, and some boxes with pretty paper. I'm not sure why we have a tree inside the house, and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to touch it or not. My ball rolled under it while I was playing and I cried and pointed at it for mom and dad to get it, and they just told me to go ahead and get it. I crawled under and got it out, then rolled it back under there because that was fun! This morning, I got brave and tugged on one of those dangly things hanging from the tree, but mom didn't get mad, she just laughed.
My mom also put these big socks above our TV. They say "Daddy", "Fitz" and "Mommy." I wonder why we need socks up there? She put sparkly lit up stuff above those, too. And my dad put lights on our bushes outside, and hung up big ornaments above the door...he said my mom "had a vision" of how she wanted them to look, and he made it happen. That's pretty neat.
One other thing has been so weird this week. My mommy can't talk. She only whispers. I heard her tell Daddy she has "laryngitis." I don't know what that means, but I sure hope she starts talking to me again soon. I miss her voice. She usually talks to me all the time. While she puts my clothes on, she tells me what I'm going to do that day, and who I'm going to see. And she sings songs to me, like "Jesus Loves Me, " and "ABC's". Maybe she'll start talking again really soon. Daddy says it sure is quiet at our house right now!
I guess that's all I have to say for right now. Come back soon to hear from Mommy!
