February 21, 1948 Eating Well, Smiling Alot, Awfully Cute, Wouldn't That Be Something and Nice Weather

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"This will be early but I wanted you to have the pictures.  They aren't so good but it will show you how he looks anyway.  The three were taken at 4 weeks and you can see he changed in just one week.  I will send Grandma one in a day or two when I can find time to write her a letter.

We are all fine.  Bobby eats real well and still has a 2 A.M. feeding.  Then he's ready for another anywhere from 4:30 - 6:00.  It's supposed to be 6:00 but he won't always wait that long.  He weighed 10 lbs. today.  We have Aggie's baby scales so we can weigh him every week.  He's getting awfully cute and smiles a lot now.

I'm sorry you have a cold.  Seems like there has been a lot of sickness around but we have been lucky so far although Aggie's kids have had colds most of the winter.  They think Bobby is pretty wonderful.

B goes to Atlantic City tomorrow for that job interview and we can hardly wait to see how it comes out.  B wrote Dr. Hill to ask his opinion on the school and he wrote back that it will be a wonderful opportunity if B can get the job.  That makes us more interested of course.  If we should go there we will be a little over 300 miles from home--a day's drive.  Wouldn't that be something?

I know I'll like your house even if it is all white and it will be yours which means so much.

The weather has been nice this week and lots of snow has melted.  The street is dry for the first time since before Xmas.  It is cold today but had been quite warm.  We want to get a used buggy so I can take the baby out when it does warm up.

Hope you are both fine."

               Lots of love,

                     B, Bonnie & Baby

NOTE from Ann:  Truman continues to lose support of Southerners for his Civil Rights Commission proposals and in an election year, begins to strategize.

Eleanor Roosevelt's comment of the day: 
NEW YORK, Friday—"On Sunday, February 22nd, Brotherhood Week begins, and it seems rather ironical that, just before this week is celebrated, some of the Southern Democrats refused to go to the Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner in Washington because the President has upheld the report of his Civil Rights Commission, on which both Northerners and Southerners were represented.
I am willing to believe that some things must be done more slowly in certain places; but how people who have any concept of the world as a whole and the need for peace in that world can feel that a small area of one nation can govern the feelings of races towards each other, is beyond my understanding."
