Kheira’s Dedication

KDBanner
What is a dedication? A lot of people ask me that question when they found out that Kheira will not be baptised but rather she will be ‘Dedicated’.
For those who do not know what a child dedication is, it is – literally – the act of dedicating. Ha! Bet you didn’t know that lol (just kidding). In this case, we are dedicating my child to Jesus Christ. As a Christian, I chose to do this because I believe that one should know when and what it means to be baptised by the Holy Spirit. I chose to dedicate Kheira to Jesus Christ to show our family, friends and community that my husband and I will be responsible parents taking on to bring Kheira up in the fear the Lord, in faith and teach her how to live life, the best way we can, as a good Christian and servant of the Lord.

Happy 28th Birthday Daddy!

Yesterday was my better half’s birth day (now my husband). This is the first birthday he celebrated with our Kheira Delvi So you already know its special…

we had a little impromptu dinner celebration with my dear mother-in-law at Vikings Megamall.

In Vikings, if its your birthday they give you this really sweet birthday greeting cake, and with it, comes a (I wanna say mariachi) band that sings mash-up songs inputting ‘happy birthday’ in the chorus. They’re really fun, though Kheira wasn’t too happy when they came. Well, that and probably because they woke her up from her nap. This year was quite easy to get my hubby a gift for his birthday since NBA 2k16 came out couple of days before his birthday – which he absolutely must have. My plan was to buy the video game, buy a picture frame the same size as the video game and put a real nice family picture of us in it and wrap them both – giving them to him separately. Picture frame first (he will think its the game) and then the actual – wrapped – game, making him think I didn’t get him the game but I actually did. Of course that DID NOT happen. The day it came out (or the next day I think) we happened to be at the mall with his friend and they were discussing on HOW to get the game, because apparently there was a “waiting list” and they were gonna try to see if any of the vendors would sell to them even if they weren’t on the list. Long story short – there was no list. I was afraid the game would sell out, so I bought it that day. So much for my surprise, right? So I came up with another surprise – which was his birthday cake – which I know is one of his favorite cakes 🙂 After his lil’ birthday dinner, me, Kheira and my mother- in-law quickly prepared upstairs – cake, candle and all – while he parked the car. When he opened the door.. tadah!

To Vaughn: It wasn’t much, but I hope we still made you feel extra special on your day. Loving you xx

I have posted on twitter, Facebook and instagram our (Kheira and I’s) birthday greeting. This, however, is NOT a birthday greeting but more of a sentimental note. I’m not trying to be cheesy. I just have a lot of nice things to say about my ‘husband‘ I’m still trying to get used to calling him that, by the way, but I’m overjoyed. Still a little weirded out about it every now and then, but nevertheless still overjoyed. (Hahaha!) We used to say, “we’re in this together” when we hit a bump and it gave me comfort knowing he got my back. Now, I really know what you meant by that.

07.24.15 #MarriedMyBestFriend

You were more than I expected. You made me the person I am today. And I can proudly say (with no shame) that he made me a better person. Because of you I’m a good mother, I’m a better friend and hopefully I will be the best wife. I’m still learning, because let’s face it, this is my first time. This year was, by far, the best year I’ve ever had because of him! It was a lot of ups and downs, emotional and physical hurdles, but we got through it and is still getting through. He is the rock that holds this family together. He was there where I experience the worst depression after my baby girl was born. He kept me inline and assured my feelings through it all; the pregnancy, giving birth and now taking care of the baby. You are my sound mind and my conscience. I couldn’t ask for anybody better!

Thank you for being amazing…
