I had a wonderful birthday!! When I woke up I got lots of presents; helmut and a summer dress from grandparents in Sweden, a saddle from mom and dad and puzzles, baking things from my sister Karin Inga. We went to the swimming pool and even Karin Inga was bathing today. I loved it of course and it seems like Karin Inga loved it too. She did not say anything and just relaxed in the pool.
Markus and Stefan came to me and we had some sausages. Then we went to "Husdyragardurinn" which is the Icelandic Zoo. Wow, it was great to be there watching all animals and also all the other things you could do. When we came home mom had made a teddy bear cake while dad did not think mom is particularly good in baking. I liked it anyway.
On the Sunday mom, Kajsa and I went to Borganes and I could try my new sadle and helmut. I was very good in riding and I did it all myself. Mom and Kajsa were really proud of me. Look at all my pictures from my day.
On Friday we will head north for Landsmot - the great icelandic horse competition.

2 years birthday coming up!

On Saturday 24th I will be 2 years old. Wow, time flies mom thinks it’s like yesterday she saw me for the first time. I have grown into a curious happy child with a strong will and completely unafraid. I like dancing and parties and have already shown I am a “night animal” as I like to sleep in the mornings and do not want to go to bed particularly early. I like horses and football – and I assume mom is not very happy about the football thing… I like to talk to people and am never afraid of strangers. I am a daddy’s girl and even if I love mom he is my idol and my hero. He is the one I am turning to in all kind of situations when I need consoles. During my first years my toughest thing to learn is to eat real food. Actually mom and dad had huge troubles in teaching me to like eating. As a matter of fact I did not like it at all and sometimes they sat 40 minutes every time trying to feed me. I guess I have to thank Lilja – my day care nanny – as she learnt me how tasty food really is. Today I like almost everything while sausages is my ever-best favourite food.

We have been on our second horse trip. I sat in the car together with dad and Titti. Mom was riding and it was raining cats and dogs. Because of the weather ebb was not like usual and in one path they had to swim with the horses. Burr, it must have been freezing, as it cannot be warmer than 6 degrees in the sea. Mom was a bit afraid about her breastfeeding so she quite rather soon after. A hot bath and some rest cover all troubles so Titti still had food the day after.

Yesterday mom and dad had great news – we have got permission to build our own house!! Our land is nearby we live now and if plan follows we will start building summer/fall 2007.

Cowboy Party in Grundafjördur

Last weekend we went up to my aunties in Grundafjördur. Kristin was celebrating her 30's birthday by inviting all her friends and family to a country western party. We all wore jeans and cowboy hats. I love parties and was dancing like ever before. I was also playing football with my cusine Thorre and as a matter of fact I am pretty good at it. Whatever mom is proud of that or not is a good question, as she is not particularly found of football.

I am continuing at "Rolo" and at the moment mom is trying to leave me there alone. Yesterday I was there for an hour without mom and it was ok. I was playing with all the children and I had lots of fun.

I am increasing my word vocabulary and I am learning new words every day. I am still mixing Icelandic and Swedish while it's a bit better. This morning I said 2 words at the time "pappa bil" which means I told mom dad went with his car.

Titti has been growing rapidly and is smiling and talking like never before. She is still much calmer than I was while she can be mad too. Yesterday she was really pissed as mom left us in the car while she ran into the shop. We were sleeping so she did not want to wake us up however Titti woke up and went completely mad, as mom did not respond at once. Mom was only away for a couple of minutes but Titti could not accept it. I was still sleeping I did not bother at all…

The other day mom was organizing her sewing things into different boxes. Do you wanna know what I did? When she did not watch I put all her cotton reels into my car. It went many days until she discovered what I had done. He he he… I like fooling mom!
See ya
