Babel Yearly – 2

Last year, uncle Djamo took a photo of the three of us holding a photo canvas of the three of us in the hospital, moments after you were born. This year, uncle Djamo took another photo of us holding a canvas with that photo we took last year.

Getting this year’s photo was a bit of a challenge. I brought the canvas to Japan because I want all yearly photos to be taken on the 25th of April. Your opa tried taking a photo for us, but he’s not quite the photographer your uncle Djamo is. Also, you weren’t much in the mood for photos. As you can see below the photos we took in Japan weren’t that great.

So I asked uncle Djamo to take this year’s photo at your birthday party. Unfortunately, I don’t think uncle Djamo will be at your third birthday party, since he’s moving to Kuwait this summer. So we’ll need someone else to do it next year.

Even though Djamo’s photos are by far my favorite, I’ll probably end up using one of the Japan photos for our yearly canvas. I don’t think I can break my 25th of April rule. Besides, uncle Djamo is definitely not going to be there every year to take a great photo, so I will have just have to learn to be satisfied with good enough photos.
