The other day i was looking back at my wish list for this year which i wrote a few days before last Christmas and it seems like days literally flew. I barely got most of those things done,i actually ended up doing better things which i wouldn’t have expected to have done this year.

Now as we get into the Christmas mood ,we are grateful for giving us all the support,love and good criticism. We have never had any bad or rude comments on any of our social media  platforms and we truly appreciate that.

This is Sheyce’s 3rd Christmas and now that she understands it a little bit,i took her to the mall to see Santa and the humongous Christmas tree.Garden City Mall had the most beautiful Christmas decorations this year and simply brought the season mood to life. Sheyce was so excited and now she cannot wait to spend the rest of the season with family. I hope to put up Christmas decorations in my house next year and let her participate,she would love it.

Year 2016 wasn’t the very best but it still turned out alright ; The blog grew and the content keeps getting better (at-least we believe so),met amazing people who played and are still playing a major role in making the blog better and into a full blown website next year,Sheyce got nominated for the Most Photogenic baby girl award by Tabasamu Mwanangu and we got to explore more places and created relationships with most of them,basically ,its been a year full of growth and good happenings but like we know life to be,good and bad days alternate but we pulled through just fine; probably stronger and better.

A few days to Christmas,ten days to be exact ;usually i would have already taken a break to enjoy the festive season but i have loved the progress i have made with the blog and i feel some guilt to pull off a disappearing act till early 2017. So, hey ! will keep the momentum and have posts up every week and on good days ,twice a week… 🙂

The other day,on Sheyce’s actual birth date ,12th December we decided to check out a place my mom always talks about,Sentrim Elementeita lodge and my oh oh ,isn’t it one of the most scenic places we have been to yet ?! It being a holiday,the place had been booked for an event but we were so lucky to get there just as they were wrapping up .

Sentrim is very beautiful but what makes its even mooooooore beautiful is its amazing view of one of the biggest lakes we have in Kenya; Lake Elementeita . The Lake does not have any animals and it is not as deep as other lakes.

We took at least two hours to feel,experience ,capture and make memories of the beautiful and magical discovery we felt we had made. This is a place we hope to frequent as much as we can and get to even experience some family sun-downers (that would be a total haven).

Sheyce turns 3

dsc_0308

Hey guys …Sheyce officially turned three yesterday and it feels amazingly great to see her grow. We held a small birthday lunch party with family and close friends and we are so grateful to all who came through and made it happen! And to my parents for letting us use their home and for all the amazing support we get from them as we raise Sheyshey.

dsc_0174

Being young parents ,and getting to have the few friends we have and family as our support system pushes us to do better than we ourselves expect and we end up surprising ourselves at how well this whole parenting journey keeps turning out.

We pray she continues to grow as a God fearing girl who will know and love God,to be a well rounded kid who will excel in everything she does,to be extremely talented and gifted and to have a great personality that will uphold all the values and morals we intend to instill in her.

Trendy Three’s Around The Corner

dsc_0080

It is hard to imagine that Sheyce is turning three in just four days. Just the other i was in disbelief that i had a little person in me and now look at me feeling quite old to be a mother to a three year old toddler.

dsc_0085

I found out i was preggers when i was 20 and in my last days of my first trimester after the boo insisted on the test. It was a mix of emotions ;excitement,denial,disbelief ,anxiety and a gazillion questions in my head. For a minute i thought my life was going to change ,and probably for the worst but somehow in my heart,a little voice said it was for the best.

dsc_0074

That little voice was right,it did not become better immediately,there were a lot of tears ,sadness but i had such a strong support system to keep me going till i got to meet this little gem. (preggers story,i will tell in detail when am calmer) Lol! And here we are !

dsc_0098

Sheyce is a Gem ,she a whole lot of things wrapped up in one,she lights up a room with her bubbly nature,she is a ball of Energy ; My God,this baby has got too much energy ,she seems like she will be extremely talented in gymnastics,instruments and arts,she is smart and witty ; loves her books ,is keen to detail and has a very good memory , She is fully of positive vibes and her enthusiasm and charisma is to die for.

dsc_0116

Seeing her grow,having the responsibility to nurture and mold her into the Vessel God has purposed her to be is such a blessing and a humbling experience. Its not something anyone would have taught me,i have had to learn on the job. And so far ,i can confidently pat myself on the back and give a sigh of good relief for a job well done.

dsc_0078

Am excited for her,i cannot wait to see how her Trendy Three year  will be,but i pray and hope it will be a good,blessed and beautiful year for her and those around her. Why Trendy Three ? Teren….Teren….. you will have to wait and see it as it unfolds….

dsc_0087

This is our last post when she is in her terrible twos,but wait,no! They were actually Terrific Twos 🙂

Thank you for following our journey ,onto the next chapter now… Stay blessed guys !!
