Emmanuel Is One Month Old!

Our Complete Family Photo!


We just celebrated Emmanuel’s first month milestone over the weekend with a simple party. Yesh, it’s been a month since Emmanuel’s birth! Where did all the time go?! It feels like yesterday when I first held him in my arms, though trauma of labour has wore off a little. I suspect some of my brain cells died in the process of labour, so I don’t remember much of the pain (it has to be so, else I won’t have 4 kids, right?)

I wasn’t too keen to throw a party for full month, cos frankly, the baby wouldn’t be aware of it (least to say, enjoy it). But Emmanuel is my last baby and so it would be my last chance to throw a full month party… so, after discussing with the hubs, we decided to go ahead with a simple party. We didn’t have much time, energy and resources to plan a lavish party but we were glad that everything worked out pretty well.

The kids tried to help me with the party decor. They didn’t manage to do much, but it was good to keep them occupied :) Shanice made a door sign which we put up at the party venue. Unfortunately, we didn’t take a photo of it :( Renee tried to draw something but it was lost in the mess of art materials, and Nat was just having some fun with paint.

We were especially glad to have Reflection Photography to inject the WOW element to the occasion with their onsite photo booth. It was a hit with our guest and we were pleasantly surprised by how game our friends and family were.

I super love the customised photo frame with our baby’s name on it (it marked the occasion!). Not only were the photos quickly printed and given to our guests on the spot, we were also given a link to download all the photos taken at the party. More photos are available for viewing here:

The hubs and I had our hands full with 4 kids (one in my arms and 3 running around), and so we didn’t had much capacity to take many pictures during the party, but thanks to Reflection Photography, we need not worry about missing any photo moments with our guests :)
