Or maybe it’s all that soft delicious cake we unabashedly stuffed our faces with today…it is M’s birthday, y’all. Good good day!
Good morning fam! Long post alert…
Today has been such a big, big day! First, we woke up super early to drive one and a half hours to witness the christening of a dear friend’s baby. Then we headed off to the beach for a while. As usual we had to drag Rocket – pet name for Alexander! – kicking and screaming, as usual, firm in his refusal to leave off playing in the sand. Oh the murderous glares he kept casting us throughout the ride home! I’m sorry but it was all I could to keep from laughing out loud. He just looked so cute!
The christening ceremony, also known here as Outdooring Ceremony, was so beautiful. There was a lot of singing and exuberant dancing, especially from the maternal grandmother; it’s like her joy simply knew no bounds.
All of it got me so emotional, especially seeing the tiny little baby Giovanni. Awesome name, btw. M thinks that with a name like that, he’s bound to get all the girls. Ha! I digress… it doesn’t seem that long since my little Moonbeam was a newborn himself. Oh how doth the time fly, indeed. I was sniffling and almost burst out bawling at a point. I was just so nostalgic and happy. Tomorrow, Moonbeam will turn seven months! Whoa.
Btw (this means By The Way, in case you’re wondering!), I’m thinking to number my posts from now on. I’m hoping that would make it easier for you to read and follow along on the journey, yes or naah? I’ll probably go start from the very beginning, and make that number one… And on it will go…
Motherhood has sure made a softie out of me… I’m constantly battling the urge to write about babies, babies and more babies, but battle we must, because we wouldn’t want to bore you who are sans babies, eh? Besides, this is strictly a baby-free zone! Let’s focus on the fashion.
Also, guessed you noticed the blog header changed! After endlessly naming and renaming the blog I’ve decided to go nameless, ha. Your blog name suggestions are very welcome. At the moment, I’m in favor of naming the blog “We are Golden”. It seems so apt! It’s meaningful to me, coming from the Gold Coast, also meaningful as we are children of the Most High, and the sentence itself is so full of good vibes! “We Are Golden”. Doesn’t it sound wonderful??!
So let me know what you think!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Stay blessed!
(PS. Almost forgot to mention that I brought my other battered computer down from Europe! So no more blogging by tablet, I can link to other posts and externally, and type out longer rumblings now, yayyy! Be terrified – run for your life! Lol. Thank you SO much for reading. 😛 )
