Journaling in urania czech [be warned its long and I tend to waffle abit LOL]:
It was a beautiful day, the warm sun burst in through the window and gave the room a wonderful glow. To add to the calm I could hear your giggles in the other room, probably with the help of daddy ďthe tickle MonsterĒ. I had a LO to do and I didnít have the right photo so decided to get a photo shoot going. This room was perfect and you just love posing in front of the camera. I was so wrapped up in taking photos though that I didnít even notice your lunch on your face until afterwards. But then that was apart of you that day Ö as it is most days. There is often a chase around the room with a wipe in my hand, not because you hate it but because you love to be chased. When I do catch up with you itís always those giggles again as I wipe your chin. So here you are, happily posing with your face covered in what looks like peanut butter. I donít know where you get the energy from. Well maybe I do Ö.. it was peanut butter that day. It gave you enough energy to light a whole city. After running around you stopped and started your favourite activity Ė using the bed as a trampoline. You have all the right moves, the way you slightly bend your knees when you land, point your toes when going up and how you use your arms to gain momentum. Then came the star jumps. I just wish I was competent enough with the new camera to have captured it all. Lots of blurry photos and thatís even on sports mode. The window in the background was fine, but you were a blur. I did end up with the shot I wanted but for the others they were left sitting on my PC. That was until the 2008 year in review page was created and I realized I had taken a few shots worth scraping and that this one moment in time needed to be recorded. It
was just one crazy day out of many other crazy days since you have been in my life but still so worth scrapping. You had just spotted daddy coming in through the door here and you raised your arm to point. I got this photo just before you screamed and then ran behind me laughing. Daddy was coming to get you, roaring and growling like a dinosaur. Yep thatís how he got the name daddy dinosaur. You run and run but at the same time love to be caught because then its tickle time. Even now when you recognize letters and numbers correctly your prize is a tickle fest. So different to me, I can not stand to be tickled. I remember this day so well because after a while I gave up taking photos and just joined in the fun. The photos on this page show you enjoying yourself with a scarf but they are only reminders of the whole day. This is how I remember the whole day. Playing, screaming, laughing, running, giggling ÖÖ you being your adorable self Ö. Just one more amazing day in a long line of many amazing days.
