Journalling reads: I wasn’t exactly in the habit of taking pictures of you on the toilet, while we were potty training. So I guess this must have been some kind of milestone we had reached. Otherwise why would I have bothered taking a photograph? Potty training is al a bit of a blur to me. I remember you never liked the potty and you went straight to using your special seat on the big toilet. I remember buying a lot of pull ups but I don’t remember you being difficult to train. I’ll be honest and say it’s more than likely that I just didn’t make the effort to potty train you and the pull ups were easier for me to deal with. But all of the details are sketchy. I don’t remember much about you at this age and I am truly sorry for that. I had so much on my mind after losing Gaiebraille and Leo that I was basically just going through the motions, doing what had to be done and no more. A lot of your milestones slipped through the cracks you don’t even have a real baby book and I apologize from the bottom of my heart for that. I just wanted you to know that I was proud of each and every one of the milestones you reached, even if you don’t have the photographs or scrapbook pages telling you so. The slightly ironic part about this photo is that it was taken on Gaiebraille’s 2nd anniversary. Whatever you were doing in this photo was important enough to drag me out of the grief haze I went through for the first few years, grab the camera and capture the moment, I can’t remember what the moment was anymore but I am proud of you anyway. I love you Lukas and I really hope you know that.
