Lines leading to a little something

I cannot believe that half of the year 2016 is already over. Time passes by so quickly, but that is a good sign as we know. We had warm weather this week, and spent a lot of time at the beach swimming, playing with the sand and in the water and feeding young ducks (special excitement for Toni). We also bought her the first bicycle seat and gave it a try - partial success, the helmet stayed on maybe for half an hour and then she got bored, but nevertheless, we are moving again and with wind in her head and speed that is what she and all of us likes. We noticed also that she likes ice cream (and bites it "like a real person", as Tanya said). One thing is on my mind: the time when I leave her for the first time for 2.5 weeks for the work tip to Siberia is coming closer, and I am getting slightly sad (not to say very sad) and Tanya slightly worried (not to say very worried) how she will manage, only little Toni has no clue yet and keeps playing and singing and dancing - well, she feels maybe something since she is longing for breast-milk more than ever. Hopefully it is true what everybody keeps telling: she will survive and I will enjoy...
