Carol’s Baby Boy Celebrates His 1st Birthday!


Remember when I wrote about the baby shower I attended for my friend Carol Salamba sometime last year?

Well, I attended her son Eli’s 1 year birthday party two weekends ago. Yeah, allow me to quote the cliché:  ‘how did time fly so fast’?

Yap, I also couldn’t believe that a year had already gone by, my my my! Soon, Eli will be opening the door for me when I go visiting his mom!

I arrived for the birthday party late because earlier in the day I was attending my chama friend Joan’s baby shower in Kiambu (as you can see baby showers form the bulk of my social outings nowadays). :)But by hook or crook I couldn’t miss Eli’s birthday, no matter what. The birthday started at 1pm and myself, Baba Kitty and Kitty arrived at 8pm.:) Thankfully there was still cake and sumptuous dinner to fill our tummies. Kitty misbehaved a little bit by wrestling all of Eli’s gifts away from him – you know – those lovely looking colorful toy cars and a tricycle which he couldn’t understand belonged to some other kid and not him.

I was happy to celebrate this lovely day with Carol and her family. It has been a journey for Carol who spoke to me about how she kept the faith and is proud to be a mom today, and I thank God for the blessings that he has bestowed on her.

Mother and son :)

Carol is my very very bosom buddy from childhood days in Buru, and I really treasure her friendship. I am glad that we today, as grown ladies, get to share and exchange notes on the experiences of motherhood as we raise our sons.  Love you girl and a blessed life to Eli. xoxo.
