Letters To Laura (5)

, , ,

As I lay in my bed with pretty bad ear infection and a Titanic-size-headache, I’m trying to write your monthly letter and you look at me like you are wondering “Why do you even bother mommy?”. Cause, baby girl, you are growing up so fast. I was pregnant with you 9 months and now you are 9 months old. For 18 months our lives are connected. And it passed in a blink of an eye. That’s why I’m trying to remember every single detail, every achievement and every word you say (if you can call your jibber-jabber words).

You are standing by yourself almost all the time. You walk holding onto couch and then try to stand on your own, without any supporter. Where’s the hurry baby girl? You’ll have all the time in the world to walk. And stand. And run. Take it easy.

Everybody falls madly in love with you. You are like Puss in Boots from Shrek – you are using your cute nature and innocent, wide-eyed expression to soften everyone’s hearts. And then you attack them with kisses and hugs (small drooling bites accompanied by hair pulling). Nobody minds.

You have 2 teeth! And we have little marks all over our furniture to remember that.

You talk non-stop. Your jibber-jabber sounds like real sentences but I have no.idea.whatsoever you are talking about. Sorry about that.

You hair is growing more and more – soon enough you’ll be able to wear bows and hairbands and all that other girly stuff.

You crawl sooo fast. Soon enough I’ll have to run to catch you. You got that from your father – he was the “crawl champion” (while I was sitting like a stone all.the.time. and then just walked away one day).

December brought a huge change for you – we decorated your room and moved you. But… You still need a little human touch to fall asleep so we cuddle with you on our bed and then carry you to your baby bed. You love your new room – its colourful, full of light, baby proofed and all your toys are within your reach.

You understand “no” but not always obey it. If we tell you not to touch something with your hands, you try to get it with your legs. How can so much personality be wrapped up in one little nutty baby?

You clap your hands all the time. When you talk, when you sing, when we are changing your dipper (like “Yeees, I pooped again!”), when we are buying fruits on the local market. Time are place are irrelevant in your clapping schedule.

If you want something that is out of your reach (like remote control which is your favourite object to throw across the room recently), you work hard to get it. Like, really hard. Nothing gets in your way. And you object so hard when I try to take the remote control away from you – you are my personal little Che Guevara.

Your favourite game is peekaboo. You could play it all day long. It’s kind of exhausting but you love it so much I just can’t say no to you.

Your little pointy finger still explores all the little things; nothing goes unnoticeable: a crumb on the floor, a stain on my trousers, your father’s slippers, dirty dipper. Your curiosity is inexhaustible.

We celebrated your first Christmas! The tree was the superhero in your eyes; big and green with all those colourful and glittery ornaments and with all the lights. You stared at them for hours.

My dear friend Frano from Gle Fotka studio took these photos of us the other day and for that – we will be forever grateful…

Diary of an Instagramholic: December

First, happy New Year! 

This afternoon (after jet another epic battle in the “Mammy, I don’t wanna go to sleep!” war), I finally had some time for myself. So I opened my “blog calendar” and realised just how many posts I didn’t write/publish during this Christmas holidays. At first, I was appalled with my own neglect but then I realised: I needed this break. Badly. My husband also took some time off his work and the three of us spent two weeks together. Reading, cooking, sleeping, recharging our batteries and most importantly – spending quality family time with our little Tasmanian devil… Here are some December highlights:

Laura celebrated her very first Christmas (one tip for young mothers out there… don’t buy your children gifts – just buy them wrapping paper; Laura was so into playing with glittery paper, she didn’t care at all for the presents she got) :: went to the dentist after avoiding him for almost two years (yep, you read that right) :: gain some weight due to Christmas and birthdays and my husbands cooking :: Laura experienced her very first snow (you should have seen her excitement and amazement; I havent seen anything like that until now) :: read a lot :: shoot one beautiful, intimate wedding :: found out we had Cookie Factory here in Zagreb (also one to blame for my weight gain) :: shoot my friend Frano and his beautiful family of four

We met for a coffee couple weeks ago and when they told me they were getting married on December 12th, I realised it was Wednesday. Of course I had to ask them “How come you are getting married on a Wednesday?” and their answer was “It’s Our 10th Anniversary…”. And since I’m hopelessly romantic, I squealed quietly. Just a little bit. I enjoyed watching Irena and Domagoj interact with each other during the session – it was so good seeing them laugh together after growing together for ten years; that kind of respect and love for each other is rarely seen these days…

The session took place near Western station in Zagreb and I do wish more couples planned their engagement session in the fall cause the colours were so so beautiful. And the light was just amazing.

Letters To Laura (4)

Tags

, , ,

You were 8 months old on Saturday. 8 months.

You drink all by yourself. Both water and milk. You grab your bottle and drink/eat and half way through, you pause, check how much more you have and continue. And you repeat that action couple of times. As much as that fills me with pride, it leaves a strange empty feeling inside of my heart cause you don’t need me to feed you any more.

You are reading out loud to me; it doesn’t bother you at all that the book is up-side-down.

You try to stand on your own two feet but your legs are still to weak. Your persistence is incredible -  if I did for 15 minutes what you are doing for an hour, I would die. Your energy is limitless.

You make so many new sounds now. Mostly ta ta ta. Is it possible you are calling out to your dad already? If that’s true, I have to admit, I’m kinda jealous. Just a little bit.

You move ALL THE TIME. 24/7.

It doesn’t seem to me you are pro crawler for now; all you want to do is stand up. Most of the time you are in “Downward Facing Dog” pose; seriously, you could teach yoga class how to do it properly. Please, baby girl, wait at least two more months before you start walking. Ok?

Your explore everything; first with your fingers than with your mouth (yes, that phase is still very actual). Today you got your hands on piece of cotton wool; ohhh, the wonder. In the afternoon, you explored our woolly carpet. Again.

You saw snow for the very first time yesterday. We were glued to window for an hour or two just looking outside. All that time you were looking out than back at me. Out than back at me. Like you were saying “Look mammy! Look!”. You help me look differently at things I’ve been taking for granted for so so long.

You love play time. We spend hours every day playing with you on the floor. One of your favourite games is hide and seek; the other day I hid behind a sofa and after I revealed myself to you, you laughed so hard you fall back. So sorry about that.

You have 1 tooth! Weeeee! 19 more to go.

The “Battle of the Shoes”. And your constant intolerance to any kind of shoes on your feet. Boots, slippers, tennis shoes – you take off every pair in a matter of seconds. And its freezing outside. What kind of girl are you?! Girls should be crazy about shoes! If we lived somewhere worm 365 days a year, I would let you be barefoot but here… sorry little girl, this is a battle you won’t win.

You can sit up on your own now. I missed your first “sit up” cause I had to got to the bathroom (grrr!); I left you on your tummy and when I got back – you were sitting up smiling back at me. Couldn’t you wait for 5 minutes more for me to be present? No?

There is a belief children choose their parents/families before birth. If that is true, thank you for choosing us. I promise you we will be the best parents we can be. Love you, baby girl.

I met Frano when he photographed my maternity session and we just clicked. He is amazing photographer and even more amazing human being. And don’t get me started about his wife Tereza. B.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. lady inside and out. This is their story…

They met when he was only 18 years old on the beautiful island of Korčula. He was cruising along the shore with his friends and family and as they were sailing into port, one of his friends called the only person he knew on the entire island (Tereza) to ask her is she was willing to be their host for the evening. To quote Frano: “The moment she appeared, I immediately felt that “something”. And because they were scheduled to sail off the next morning, he used every “trick” in the book to win her over. Just like in The Alchemist (“When you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true.“), his wish came true.

In June 2011. they welcomed their first-born son Jacob to the world and this November their second son Pavle was born. And I was the happy piglet whom they let into their lives for one afternoon to capture just a glimpse of their happiness; thank you for that opportunity… Enjoy!

Diary of an Instagramholic: November

got a new hairdo – love it :: embraced the idea of reading just 15 minutes every day (and made a huge list of books I wanna read) :: all three of us were sick as dogs; I haven’t been so sick in more than 2 years :: finished all albums and delivered them to happy customers :: ate.the.best.burger.ever. :: helped a friend film “behind the scenes” video for his photography business and, have to admit, I kinda liked the whole cinematography concept :: due to our sickness, I still have 3 or 4 washing machines of laundry to iron :: enjoyed the last sunny afternoons before the winter comes :: went to Interliber (I will never confess how much money I spent there. never ever.) :: our Canon family has a new member and I LOVE it (cant wait to show you the images)

Wedding | Jelena+Duje | Zagreb

, ,

Their eyes met across a crowded caffe bar PORTAL four years ago. They were both with their friends but kept looking each others way all night long. As she was leaving, her friend gave him her phone number on a piece of paper and texting begun. It took them almost a year to go on a date. A proper date. As he was walking her home that night, they kissed for the very first time; bus line 114 was the “kiss crime scene”. That same summer, while they were apart (cause he was serving tourists and waiting tables on the seaside), they simultaneously came to the same conclusion: “That’s it. We are meant to be together!”. They got engaged shortly after his return to the city that fall; with a rings made of blade of grass on another wedding. Jelena and Duje, your wedding was one of the most intimate and emotional weddings I ever photographed. And thank your for freezing you booties off during our photo shoot :)

Love this vintage clock the groom had in his pocket:

Jelena and Duje, I wish you all the happiness in the world but it seems to me that you already have that; I’m so glad you chose me to capture the beginning of the rest of your life.

Letters To Laura (3)

It’s getting hard to keep up with our “photography monthly/birth anniversary”. We spend every day together and yet – time flies. This month I decided to do something different. I decided to make a “movie monthly/birth anniversary” instead of photography one. You father asked me how come I’m doing it now and I didn’t do it when you turned 6 months. Cause 6 months milestone is so important but it seems to me that 7 months milestone was more important to you and the change you shown.

You toss and turn so quickly that you are able to come from one side of the room to another in a matter of seconds. You look like a cool surf girl sliding up and down our parquet with your hands and legs in the air.

The “anything-you-can-grab-ends-up-in-your-mouth” phase is more actual than ever. I vacuum the floors and try not to worry about germs; mission impossible. Especially when you try to put my big toe in your mouth.

You can sit on your own for couple of minutes and you love the change of perspective that provides. And when you get tired, you end up on your tummy and sliding begins all over again.

You pout your lips and make a rawr sound when something is not according to your plan. Its hilarious.

You will be a musician of some sort; no doubt about it. You bang your arm and leg in rhythm every time you hear a song on a radio. And  this goes for hours. Your father and I are keeping our fingers crossed your instrument of choice will be guitar  Or violin. Of piano. Just please, don’t choose the drums. We beg you.

The only way I can get you to sleep during the day is to “sleep” by your side. It drives me crazy and melts my heart at the same time.

Almost all of your baby hair is gone and is now replaced by new fuzzy brown hair.

The only thing you fear are blender and hair dryer. Why?

You are extremely social. At least with other kids. You face lighten up every time you see one of your play-date friends. You smile all the time, share your toys and show you affection the same way as you show it to me (by grabbing their hair and trying to give them a big slobbery kiss). They don’t quite like it, but you don’t really care.

Bath-time is the new IT thing. When you see your tub, you get so excited I have to hold you really tight. Or you will fly away – towards the tub. We could bath you in our bathing suits cause you splash so hard and laugh even harder that bathroom floor is all wet. Together with us. But it brings you so much joy we don’t mind.

You wake up in the morning before us, turn on you belly and watch us from your crib. Just waiting for one of us too wake up. And when we do, you smile so loud and shower us with so much joy that we melt. You give us the best possible way to start the day. Every day.

I’m looking forward to your development and independence. Baby girl, we love you.
