Mom said that today, March 2nd, I am 9 months old. When she got me, I was just a little tiny thing and now I have a fluffy tummy and I’m getting longer and longer!
The Mom: Yes, Steinbeck, I’m telling your readers that it’s a special day for you.
Am I older than Hemingway now?
No, Hemingway’s age is counted in years and your age is still counted in months.
When do I get to be years?
In another three months. On June 2nd you will be one year old!
Then can I go out on dates?
No, you can’t leave the yard.
Don’t worry, Steinbeck. They all know that you are getting to be a big boy. I love you and wish you a Happy 9 Months Birthday!
