Una’s first birthday! / Unin prvi rodjendan!

It is hard to believe that a year has already flown by and our little girl is one year old. It is wonderful watching her change and learn new things by the day, but I must admit I am also a tiny bit sad that her baby days are gone (according to the books, this is the point where she is no longer a baby but a toddler).

We had a nice birthday party on Sunday, July 6th. Despite the gloomy weather forecast, the day was mostly sunny and warm enough to have a bbq outside our building. Una really enjoyed being the centre of attention, and of course opening the gifts. I must say she did not enjoy cutting her birthday cake as much as we had hoped, maybe she thought that it was incredibly cruel to kill the pretty teddybear?
And as usual, a few photos to support the story.

Prosla je vec jedna godina od Uninog rodjenja, neverovatno brzo. I moram da priznam da je radost gledajuci je kako raste i uci nove stvari svakog dana pomalo pomesana setom da vise nije nasa mala beba (prema knjigama, prvi rodjendan je kraj bebeceg perioda).
U nedelju posle rodjendana smo organizovali Uninu prvu rodjendansku zurku. Iako je prognoza bila zastrasujuca, mi smo bili hrabri i ipak isplanirali rostilj, sto se pokazalo kao odlican potez jer je dan na kraju ispao uglavnom suncan i topao. Uni se dopalo da je u centru paznje, a narocito su joj se dopali pokloni :). Nije bila preterano odusevljena ceremonijom secenja torte, mozda joj je proslo kroz glavu “neee, ne ubijajte medu”!
Evo i nekoliko slika…

What do I do now? / A sta sad da radim?

I am still confused… / I dalje sam zbunjena….

If there are South Africans, there is a bbq (sorry, braai!)/ Gde su Juznoafrikanci, tu je i rostilj!

Hm, have to look for a rocking rhyme in English… /”Djiha, djiha, cetiri noge…”
Here comes a reallllly big present!/Ta-da, evo ga i najveci poklon!
The best part of this gift is that the guys (Ivan, Aleksandar i Dalibor) have made a small printed circuit board for Una, with “my first PCB” made of tracks. Brilliant! Will take a good photo and post it later

Najbolji deo poklona je stampana plocica koju su Ivan, Aleksandar i Dalibor napravili i na kojoj pise “moja prva stampana plocica” (dvojezicno naravno). Fenomenalno! Slikacu i postaviti sliku uskoro!

I will open and assemble it all by myself! / Sama cu ga sastaviti!
