This is where we celebrated the twins’ baptism and birthday. It’s only a simple celebration – no clowns, no chocolate fountain and no photo booth (which is the IN thing nowadays). We don’t even have souvenirs to give. Here’s the reason why.Yes, it's always very sad, souvenirs are important, click. We should buy something.
The event was like a reunion. I have seen my sisters and friends after a long time. The food was overflowing since Yakimix is a Korean and Japanese buffet restaurant though I wasn’t able to eat much because I have to entertain the guests.
The babies will be baptized on Saturday. The celebration is just a simple lunch with immediately family members and close friends. There are only three sets of godparents as well. We have no souvenirs because the babies got sick and they just got well so I have no time or rather, no energy to prepare for giveaways. I was thinking of a keychain or tumblers to give but hubby won’t agree with me. I told him we could also give cupcakes but he said food shouldn’t be given as souvenirs. It was really hard to think of what to give.
The event is two days away so I don’t have time to scout or order the items. So now, I’m thinking that for the godmothers, I’d Send Flowers and for the godfathers, I’d send some wine. I hope the other guests won’t mind if we won’t be able to give them souvenirs.
One of the best chocolates I’ve eaten and is my current favorite. Too bad I can’t eat as much as I want because I’m still breastfeeding. Besides, if my eldest sees me eating, she’ll ask for it too and she can’t eat too much sweets because it’ll trigger her asthma.
I attended my cousin’s daughter’s baptism last week. Alexie Sophia, the baby’s name, is their first born. She just turned two-months old but quite big for her age. I was one of the godmothers but I wasn’t able to go to the actual event at the church because I thought it hasn’t started yet. It was embarrassing since when I was about to go inside the church, they were all coming out from the chapel. The christening was performed in the chapel due to some event in the main church.
I was very apologetic and just went to the reception afterwards. I first gave my cousin the gift without a gift card sleeves (due to time constraint) but also gave her wife some cash before I left. I was able to see some of my relatives again. I left after more than an hour because I have the babies waiting for me.
It’s hard when a family member is sick, much more if it’s the kids. My eldest and youngest are both sick. Ate I have asthma attack while Al, I don’t know what her sickness is. I’ve brought them both at the pedia (different day). However, I’m much worried about Al, she got a fever but we don’t know what could be the cause. Her doctor said she has a sore throat which could be causing it. She got a 40.3 degree Celsius fever last night so I asked her babysitter to sleep with me in the room.
Her fever got lower this morning but I’m still worried. Now the other twin have colds. If only I could take all of their sickness away. I hope it’s me who’s sick than them.
