Hello, Beth here. So Susannah had a rock'n'roll summer. She went to Chattanooga, Florida, Maine, Cape Cod and Quebec. She had visits from Papa, Moonpie and Anne Louise. She learned to ride a tricycle with Buzzy and Shay Shay and she picked blueberries with Jill. She went to the Bronx Zoo, the Natural History Museum, the Prospect Park Carousel, and playgrounds all up and down this fair city, from the Upper East Side to the South Street Seaport. Girlfriend got around.
Her allergist said she was still allergic to a bunch of things, but she eats butter by the forkful. Her kidney doctor said her kidneys looked better than ever. Hurrah! She turned three. She started potty training. She knows all the words to Chattanooga Choo-Choo. She now throws things on the ground (or at the person next to her) whenever she doesn't get her way. Girlfriend got feisty.
She gained four pounds in four months. There's a friendly dragon that lives in her room, and a worm and caterpillar and sometimes a snake, and they must all be removed before she can go to sleep. She told someone on the elevator in our building that she had a baby sister and the baby sister's name was "Emma the Cat." Folks, you can't make this stuff up.
