When mommy dressed me today, she put some very special clothes on me. I’ve never worn these before. They were all white. I even had a hairband on… I did not necessarily care for this hairband, but mommy kept putting it on my head, so I guess it was something special she wanted me to wear today. I’m not entirely sure what made this day so special that I had to wear these rather strange clothes, but I just went along with it, which seemed to make mommy and daddy happy somehow. And that made me happy.

After being dressed I just played a bit (I love playing!!) and all of sudden the doorbell rang multiple times and mommy and daddy rushed around. Who are all of these people storming into the living room? They are sooo tall, I can hardly see.

Mommy, mommy take me up on your arms, so I can see! Ahh much better. Well let’s see. I recognize some of these people. There is this couple that is older than mommy and daddy. They arrived yesterday and I keep playing with the woman. I think I must be related to them and mommy calls her my “Oma” (Grandma) all the time. Not entirely sure yet what that means, but it must have something to do with family. I like that woman. She always plays with me a lot when she is around.

Let’s see who else is here. Uii there is the red haired lady that seems to be my “Oma” too. I think you can have multiple ones… She looks after me and plays with me quite a lot – which is always fun! I love to play… I want to play…

Ok I’m drifting off, so who else is here today. There is this family that keeps visiting and that mommy takes me too often too. They play with me all the time as well. I think mommy is very very close with them. The woman does look very similar to mommy… maybe they are related? There are these two younger people in that family. I think they are their children like I’m mommy and daddy’s child, right? They are so much fun. I love playing with them. The boy loves Miss Marple (our dog). He always goes out with him and sometimes he takes me too. I like Miss Marple – I always try to pet her but she keeps walking off… maybe if I scream in a high pitched voice she will come back?? Hmm, has never worked so far…

Who are these other people?? I might have seen some of them. Not sure. And then there is this woman with this black big object in front of her face all the time. She keeps pointing it at me. Not so sure what it does? I’m quite curious though… Maybe someday I will understand. I think it is similar to when mommy points her ringing square thingy at me. But this black thing looks much bigger and scarier. But hey, mommy looks and smiles at it every time it points at her, so I guess that’s what you are supposed to do. But can’t be for sure.

Oh now we are getting dressed to go outside. Yuhuu! I love playing outside. Wow everybody is coming along. Must be something great where we are going to.

 Woooowww. This is a biiig building. With a pointy top. It is massive. I can’t even look that high up, so big it is. Uii I’m intrigued, we are going inside. I can hear other kids laughing and making noises. Where are we, mommy?? Oh so much to see, don’t know where to look first. We just entered this big hall. And there are a lot of benches everywhere. But up front I can see a table with a huge cross on top. What does this cross stand for, mommy? Look, there is a candle with my name on it. E-M-M-A. Yup that’s me 🙂

We are now sitting on one of these benches and a woman in a robe talks to everyone in this church (as I heard mommy called this building before). She is talking about different things – I didn’t listen, so I can’t be sure what she has said – and then we all stand up and sing along to music that is coming from somewhere. Aww I like to sing… well I can’t sing yet, but I can make noise! Hahah! Yes!!

Oh oh now mommy is taking me up front to the lady. Daddy is coming with and someone from my family, I believe her name is Vivi – I heard daddy calling her that before multiple time. I like Vivi. I’m in her arms now. She always smells so nice. Oh ohh, what’s going on? Why am I having water on my face now? Mommy, why is that woman in the robe pouring water on me and talking to me? Am I supposed to do something now? Oh well, the water is fine. Not too fussed. I hear others have cried out before, but not me. Nope. I like water 🙂

Ah now we are going back to our seats. I’m bored. I want to play. Mommy, can I play?? After what felt hours and hours, so I was very exhausted and had to take a nap.

We are now back home though. Now I can play! Yippey!! The tall people are all still there, chatting away. Foood! I’m hungry! I love bread. It keeps me busy chewing. That lady with the pointy big camera (not that I would  know what that is yet) is sitting in front of me. She keeps pointing that thing at me. But oh well. I like my bread so I keep chewing. Oh I guess mommy wants me to eat something from the point silver thing. What is it?? …mmmhh yummy, that tasted good!

Hm people keep taking me out of my chair and holding me. I guess that’s what tall people do. Holding us little people. That’s alright. But now its time to play!! Yippey! What an exciting day!
