When I told my mother we are holding a baby shower, she was confused. I had to explain to her and what the current generation does. What she knew was that baby celebrations are only done when the baby is here. That’s how it’s normally done, but things changed, and there is no bad time to do a baby shower. However, to shower a baby, that normally happens when baby is born. For friends and family to bond with the baby personally. To shower the baby with gifts and love.
I love babies. They love babies. She loves Babies. He loves babies. Everyone loves babies!
Yes, a baby shower is coming soon and we are all excited. Lyn and Brad have already picked names for the 'coming-soon-cousin'. How exciting! Its been a long journey for the 'mom-to-be' but soon, she will hold God's amazing blessing.
After gathering all the close family and friends, its been decided! From the theme to cakes to everything. So everyone is happy and we can't all wait for the day this little munchkin will arrive.
The theme is African. We decided to go different this time. From the all-white baby shower to African. The girls will be pulling off an african/ankara outfit and accessorize. So i hope we all pull it off.
A baby shower with a sweet cake is like.....yea, you thought it right.
An african theme meant an african dress code. An ankara skirt and white tee was settled on.
A beautiful garden near mom-to-be, and that led to The Smith Hotel being selected.
Hope to share memories created after this day.
Lots of Love,
Shopping with my family, I mean with the kids, is not an easy one. We are currently facing a ‘terrible twos’ situation. If you are a parent, guardian or just out with toddlers, then am sure you at times face tantrums at the shopping Center or just anywhere public.
I have enjoyed every bit during my motherhood journey. There are time I feel like am going crazy, and there are times you smile at what God blessed you with. But, I often forget to plan time to be just ME. I have often had enough time for ME, but unfortunately, I haven’t utilized it well. So recently I have been trying to have just that scheduled into my calendar. That is a rare treat….but I can imagine how refreshed anyone can be!
“Auntie is coming?” Brad-Lyn ask in unison and I can see how excited and happy they are. This is how excited they are whenever they hear Aunt Fa, Sharon, Mary, Jamila and other aunties are coming. These beautiful souls have made an impact in the kids (only Brad and Lyn know how).
