Elizabeth doesn't live here anymore

Instead we have a new puppy named Walnut that crawls all over the house in pink pajamas and says, "Ruff, ruff, ruffy", over and over again. Walnut has been here for over a week, constantly, 24-7. She went to church with us yesterday even though I begged Walnut to stay home and let Elizabeth come with us. I've never seen a game of pretend last so long!

Also, apparently when puppies speak, every consonant in a word is changed to an "f". So, when "Walnut" wants a glass of milk she says, "Foffy, I fant a fass of filk, fease." At least she said please (or fease)! But, most of the time I can't understand a word of what she is saying in this puppy language.

And, after a week, I have to admit that I'm ready for Elizabeth to come home to stay and for Walnut to trot off into imaginary puppy heaven.

That's hilarious! My little brother used to be a dog too, "Jerry". He would hide in boxes and declare himself a special delivery. My little niece loves animals too and is always some sort of animal! My girls still can't quite comprehend that...they're always playing house.

So there are other dogs out there. Cool. It's a new one for me. Jonathan was always building things. We always can't wait to see what he will make out of tinker toys or legos. Now we're having fun anticipating what Elizabeth will pretend to be next or what imaginary game she will play. Boys and girls are so different. You are really going to enjoy all the new experiences that Peter will bring into your life!

Aslynn was a puppy for awhile. She even wanted me to make a leash for her. But, I didn't think that was safe with twin 'dog walkers' lurking around!
Her pretending definately didn't last as long as Elizabeth's though. I would want my girl back too!
I think you have a creative girl on your hands!
