After the Christening ceremony, we all went home to have some afternoon snack. It's been a tradition in our culture that every after Christening, the guests are invited to eat and have a little celebration. For ours, we made it like a Tea Party at home. Pom poms that were used during my last baby showered were used again because it's just perfect for the theme. Everything was set up by Patrick's family.
Knowing that my university friends who travelled two hours just to come see us was really overwhelming. I was glad they got home safe.
I was also happy that my family was able to come even though they have busy schedules. It was really nice to have family and friends celebrate with you on occasions like this.
Unfortunately, not everyone was able to stay that long because it was a sunday and everyone had their own things to do. When we opened the gifts, there were only a few visitors left. Baby K got, once again, lots of new clothes which I am thankful for. She's running out of clothes to wear. She also got a learning/musical toy which I really liked. There were also new pairs of shoes. She has more shoes than I am now. She also got her first earring. Although, it will take a while before she'll be able to wear them because I won't get her pierced until she's a year old. She also got a pretty lady bug mat and puppet/blanket. She seemed to like everything because she was grabbing them off me.
It was a tiring day. When most of the visitors have left, baby K went to sleep for almost 12 hours with only one feed in between. It was a pretty good day. My Kaelyn Rylai is now a Christian.
