My own photo album on Nissa’s wedding finally arrived today after a long, long wait of almost a year. It’s a mini version of their own wedding album and it took them a while to choose which to include in it because it was just limited to about 150 pictures among the more than 2,000 shots done by their official photographer. Anyway, I still have to watch the DVD on the wedding itself and probably choose more pics and have them printed too. We have all the pictures in CDs. How lovely and it’s nice to recall an event that somehow made my only daughter so happy. We’re waiting with bated breath for baby Nate….about five weeks more to go!
I had fun sorting the baby layette – booties, diapers, baby clothes, pajamas, receiving blankets, bonnets. I was excited, who wouldn’t? So I started washing some of them using a baby liquid detergent. Love that feeling of nostalgia – remembering those days when my two kids were still babies. It really feels good to have another baby in the family, this time, a wonderful baby boy who would give us joy and happiness. If Obet and Nissa are excited, I am more excited than they are. It’s Nissa’s 30th birthday in a week and with that little bundle of joy coming soon, what a beautiful birthday gift. It seems like only yesterday when I blogged about the joys of being a mom and my own power moments. And it seems only yesterday when it finally dawned on me that my daughter is getting married. How time flies and I remember blogging about their lovely November wedding last year. And now, she has her own family to speak of. Am I getting old? But they say that age is just a number, and when you add numbers to your age, you grow a little wiser. But still, I am excited. The baby that I used to cradle in my arms is now a mother in her own right.
