What do I consider sweet celebrations? A whole day of spending quality time with my family and enjoying some sweets and some celebrations.
This weekend my nephew Jonah is one month old. Look how chubby his face has become. My teeny tiny little chub chub. This is his favorite sleeping position.
My younger sister Berna (Jonah’s mom) is celebrating her birthday this weekend too.
Happy Birthday sister!!!
We had a BBQ for my sister’s birthday. Our food included spaghetti (noodles for long life), vegetable salad, BBQ chicken and beef, cassava cake and shrimp.
I picked up a birthday cake from Porto’s Bakery. My sister mentioned that she wanted to try the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for her birthday. Birthday girl request granted.
The cheesecake was good. It was a light and fluffy kind of cheesecake, very different texture than Cheesecake Factory cakes. Those are the very dense, stick-to-the-top of your mouth kind of cheesecakes.
I really enjoyed the white chocolate shavings on the top too and the raspberries inside the cake. I just wished there were more.
Big Baby Jazzy (my niece) meets little baby Jonah.
“Awwww, he’s so cute”, her words and she must have repeated it 10x.
Seeing these two play together was very special. I still remember the day Jazzy was born and I held her in my arms at the hospital. She’s growing up so fast.
She’s at that age where she wants to copy everything that you do. She wanted to play and pretend like a mommy too. She put Mickey Mouse on the baby carriage so he can take a nap and put his blanket on so he will be warm.
While Mickey Mouse was taking a nap. Jazzy wanted to do big girl things, like going on the swing by herself.
Never a dull day around here.
I wear many hats. I’m a daughter, I’m a sister and I will soon-to-be a wife but I think one of the most fun, rewarding, stress free role I have is being an aunt. It is so fun to be an aunt to such cute babies. My life changed as soon as I became an aunt. It is filled with more love and I get to enjoy many precious moments.
It’s always a great day whenever there’s family celebration.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
