Bonding with my future sister in law

Last Saturday, I went to visit my older brother and his future wife.  It was an unplanned visit because my brother just called me if I want to come because he has something to give to my father.  I am glad because that my brother called because I wanted to go out but do not know where to go.  Good thing I do my laundry last Friday.  I am free to go plus my sister is on leave from work, so I do not have to look after her kids.  This is my time to unwind after the busy week with the kids.  Sometimes, I need my “me time” to relax and have fun going out without the kids.

I did have a nice bonding with my sister in last Saturday.  We went to the thrift store/goodwill store to buy some clothes.  Yes, the sister in law has something in common, we love going to thrift/goodwill store to shop.  The sister in law bought clothes for her ready to wear business and I bought tops for me and my sister and shorts for the oldest brother and father.  After shopping at the thrift store, we talked about their upcoming wedding.  This time, they have set a date, pick the church and the reception.  I guess I have to proceed with the things I listed as their wedding planner.haha!  Makes me so excited for their big day.  My visit them was nice because we did have a good time, good talk and bonding with brother and sister in law.  Till my next visit.

First try of her new walker

The niece just turned six (6) months old a week ago.  Her legs is a bit strong so her mother decided to buy her a new walker.  The old walker will be put in our house since the niece will be in our house once her mother starts working.  The new walker will be in their house.  The new walker that the sister bought is nice and the color is so perfect for her princess.  The older walker is so manly because the owner is her first born, a son.  It is still in good condition but the sister wants to buy her princess a new one.  A thing that her little princess owns.wink*

The little princess had her first try of her new walker.  As you can see in the picture I shared that the niece is enjoying it.  Though she gets bored at first but now she is enjoying it.  Her mother can do more chores at home.  She will be doing chores while the niece is busy walking here and there.  But still she keeps her attention to her little princess while she is cooking, washing dishes, or folding clothes.  Indeed, the walker helps the sister and also the niece to start practice walking for her legs to be much stronger.

The timing was perfect when we bought the walker for the niece last week because it has 20% discounts.  We save some money because of the huge discounts.

Thinking of a unique giveaways

My brother is getting married this year.  The long wait is over for us because we have been praying for them to decided to finally tie the knot.  They are not getting any younger especially my brother and they have been living under one roof for almost three years now.  It is time for them to make it legal.  We are so happy for them and wishes them happiness always now that they are expecting their first baby.  Yes, my future sister-in-law is two months on the way.  This will be one of the happiest years of their lives.

We are preparing for their big event.  We want it to be memorable to the both of them.  They have already decided the place, and the church.  The date is not yet set, and while waiting for the date to be decided, we are thinking of the unique giveaways to their guest and visitors on their wedding.  I have to ask the brother first of their wedding motif and the giveaways that they like.  I hope to find a simple wedding giveaways that suit to the couple and will represent them.  Have to decide soon so we can start making the giveaways.

Had her first earrings

The five months old niece is the new apple of our eyes.  She gives us happiness every day because she is so bubbly little angel.  She grows real fast and I am sad thinking that I won’t have a baby to carry in my arms.  Each day with her is a treasure.  I always took a photo of her because she smiles a lot.  I do not want to miss any details so I took photos as the remembrance and to show to her parents who missed this moment because they both are working.  I want to keep them posted even on photos.

Recently, the niece has her first earrings.  Her mother decided to have it this early because if we will do it, later on, it will be very difficult.  We have experienced before on the daughter of my older brother, the baby cried a lot.  It seems like she knows what is going on, and she felt pained.   The sister does not want that to happen to her daughter, so, she decided to have ear piercing early.  Good thing the niece does not cry, but she is shocked.lol!  The niece is more pretty now and so adorable with her new earrings.  We bought the earrings at the mall with free ear piercing because going to the pediatrician is a bit expensive.  It was a good decision because the store is on sale. We saved a lot I must say.
