In all actuality, this seems to be your reaction to...well...most things. You are either a) quite serious, b) quite introspective or c) quite the tough critic.... regardless of the situation:
Speaking of new friends. This is not how you should be greeting new and younger friends. You were not raised this way! You shouldn't try to pet a new friend and then scare your other new friend into a "fear coma". You're the oldest and the biggest for crying out loud.
Obviously the big event in your life this time around was Christmas and you got some pretty sweet stuff. Like:
A trip to the chiropractor for dad:
Best dressed hillbilly ever:
A way to make baths even more complicated:
Things that roll and are kickable:
The essence of life:
I do have some unfortunate news for you about your first Christmas. This actually happened. Sorry. (Yes, those are both foxes)
But Christmas was not the only big event in the past month. You also survived what some people thought would be the end of the world because of the Mayan Calendar. I felt it my duty to tell you this possibility the morning of December 21st and you were very nervous.
You are still sensitive/high-needs/touchy, or anything else me, your mom or websites refer to you as, but at the end of the day you are Theron Drake and you are my son and I absolutely adore everything about you. From this:
Happy 9 Months, Duder. I love you buddy, and thanks for being my Dude.
Sorry for making a joke about you and mom wearing matching outfits.
