In honor of D1's six-month birthday, the Duchy conducts an interview:
Duchy: In your long life, you must have seen many changes. What stands out to you?
D1: The thing that concerns me most is the massive global cooling trend I've seen. When I was little, Mama and I could go outside in t-shirts. Now she has to put me in this giant fuzzy suit that makes it really hard to move, and we hardly ever go outside any more. If it gets much colder, I don't know what I'm going to do. We definitely need to find out what's wrong with our weather.
Duchy: What do you look back upon as your greatest accomplishment?
D1: I have to say that being able to sit up on my own has been a great thrill. I still fall over sometimes, but it's much easier to play with stuff this way. Learning how to grab stuff has been good, too.
Duchy: With a new year ahead of you, what do you look forward to doing in it?
D1: My main goal for the new year is to figure out this standing and walking thing. It looks really fun. I'd also like to teach Mama and Papa to understand what I'm saying. They can be pretty dense sometimes, but I think they'll learn.
Duchy: Let's shift gears and talk about entertainment. What do you find most amusing?
D1: Mama and Papa keeps these carrot toys on their bed. When Mama makes them dance and talk, that really cracks me up. I mean, a dancing carrot! Can you imagine? Pretty much anything Papa does is hilarious, too.
When I'm by myself, I think it's really funny to make gagging noises. It keeps Mama paying attention to me.
Duchy: And in conclusion, what words of wisdom do you have for us?
D1: It's ok to bite spoons, but not the other things that feed you.
