Words are finally starting to make sense to me. Sure, you people still utter a lot of incomprehensible nonsense, but some of your more basic English nouns and verbs are getting through to me. Even a couple French ones which, I’m sure, makes Mom happy.

It’s pretty neat to figure out that this is how communication works, and although I’m having a tough time being understood myself, I’m trying to talk with increasing frequency. Of course if I’d known this is how things worked I could’ve started this process earlier. Why didn’t somebody say so?

I spent yesterday with Grandma and Grandpa while Dad was off in Portland. We had a fun time together playing and walking about. I got to eat lots of grown-up foods, too, which is about time if I do say so myself. Honestly, I’ll eat just about anything you put in front of me, but Mom and Dad have really been holding out on a lot of the good stuff. ’bout time I got my share.

I am happy and life is good.
