Dear Mom,

Well, it’s been almost four weeks. Crazy how time flies, isn’t it? You still don’t know I’m in here yet. The angel told me you’d find out pretty soon, because you’ll be missing something. She said that while you are looking for it, you are going to start thinking about me. I am so excited, and wow, I just can’t wait!

Love,

Blob

Dear Mom,

I can tell you know about me now, or at least you think you know. The angel said that you have been wondering if I might be in here, but you still aren’t sure. Sometimes, I get a funny feeling, and I wonder if it’s when you are thinking about me. I don’t know what it is, but it seems like things get all tense. Are you okay Mom? Hope you feel better soon.

Love you,

Blob

Dear Mom,

Why have you been crying? The angel told me that you and Daddy have been yelling at each other. Are the two of you mad at me? Did I do something wrong? I hope not, but I am sorry if I did. Please don’t be mad at me.

I love you so much,

Blob

Dear Mom,

Your loving daughter,

Blob

Love,

Blob

Dear Mom,

What were you and Grandpa arguing about, and why have you been crying again? I hope Grandpa isn’t mad at me. Did I do something to make Grandpa unhappy? I hate it when you are sad Mom. It makes me feel all icky when you are sad. I haven’t heard Daddy for a long time. Is Daddy okay?

Love,

Blob

Dear Mom,

You’ve been crying for a long time today. Please don’t be so sad. I know there are lots of people who love you just as much as me, and I’ve only been around for seventeen and a half weeks. Guess what Mom. I weigh almost a whole pound, and I am starting to get my hair, and my fingernails, and…
