every week since I discovered you were there i've written you a little letter. my first letter was over 10 weeks ago. you've grown so much since then - you're about the size of an avocado. lately I've been feeding you apples and pears from our garden, glasses of milk, and homemade bread. sometimes I feel a tiny flutter, like a butterfly, and I wonder if its you dancing in your nine-month-long bath (I know I would be dancing if I could have a bath). its nice to have your company everywhere I go; like when I started french classes this week, and the time I picked these lilac clovers on the way home from the train station.
