There is just something about these hot days in August and watermelon. Mommy and Daddy used to cut up the watermelon for me but I have mastered the pleasure of eating watermelon so much they couldn’t keep up with me. So, now I get my very own big boy piece. It surely is delicious!
A few weeks ago I had my eyes tested. My Mom and Dad seemed to think I needed to go to the eye doctor because every time I wanted to see something in detail I would have to put my face up to it to see. Next week I should be getting my very first pair. They say these glasses I am getting are indestructible. I say bring it on and let me test it out. They haven’t employed a tester like me. If they are Joseph proof then they will be indestructible.
As time has gone by I have found my Big Brother to be the neatest brother in the whole world. In fact I think I have become his shadow. Mommy and Daddy allow me to do all that I can, of course with a watchful eye, but to never stand in my way of what I can do. I am slowing down a bit and watch big brother run down the hall way and wait for him to come through the living room and then I run really fast and beat him to the finish line. Winner! Of course, my breathing is becoming so much more labored now and anything I actively do I will pour on the sweat. My next surgery is creeping closer and closer-of course I am not really thinking about it much but my folks sure keep that eye on me. Nevertheless. I am having fun–hard giggling fun especially when I get Daddy’s attention — sometimes its hard to do so I have to get his leg and tell him to turn around and watch me and he does. That’s when I give it my all and run all the way down the hall way screeching a motor type sound as I am running. I’ve learned so much from big brother, especially how to get my way. He definitely teaches me and I hope he is proud of my success!
Well, I hope next year you will have a piece of watermelon on August 31. Wherever you are be sure that I sure will.
