Is this copywriter seriously out of tune with nature, or what? No, I'm being deliberately unfair. It's a language thing... Or is it?

So Spring is coming there,Sam? I really want to write something for your little angel, but who can ever write better than her dear father?
She's getting prettier and prettier, all my best wishes to polly.
Love this photo. Love this beautiful girl walking in the Spring.

Been enjoying your blog very much, Sam. Always a great pleasure to read.

Thank you, flying bird. And yes, she is getting prettier, particularly with the missing tooth which you can't see in the photo.

... sam, this really gives me a chuckle. I can imagine how lovely that would be.

Please call me Lian, my surname, which is much easier to pronounce than my given name.

She's a born artist, you're little girl is, and a gorgeous one at that! I'm trying to get my 4 y-old into painting, but all he wants to draw or paint at the moment is goddamn Batman or fugly monsters! (gotta start somewhere I suppose)
Must get my mouth around one of those whacky, educational chocky sticks, haha keep those updates happening Sam!

Sam, I sadly see older kids in my classes with less imagination than your Polly. Her picture, is, without bias, quite sophisticated for her age. Amanda, the older boys in my classes are mad on drawing anything involving horror... they may become blog writers :)

Sam, Polly's dress - my daughter had one just like that in velvet.
