Birthday, Family, Happy,, Holiday


My baby girl turned one last Thursday and it was a paaaaaartaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!!!


I honestly can’t believe it’s been a year already since my niece was born; time does fly indeed! I still remember that day like it was yesterday – Wednesday, 2nd july 2014 – my sister [her mom] had been in labour for 17 hours and it was such a nerve-racking experience for all of us – the waiting, the tears, the drama – phew! She came at about 5.30pm on a Wednesday but I couldn’t make it to see them until Friday because of work [2 extra long days of waiting]. When I saw my niece, it was love at first sight; this precious rosy cheeked mini-human was about to change all our lives forever and it’s truly been a joy ride ever since. I love my niece! So much! I love her like she is mine and I’m totally obsessed with those cheeks.  She’s a happy, bubbly, cheerful and friendly child and it’s never a dull moment with her; even with my mother’s epic shade, I’ll never not be obsessed.

As expected, I flooded my Instagram TL with these bajillion collages that basically said – I have so many pictures of my niece, i’m spoilt for choice, bear with me – my followers had no choice but to deal. I’m an obsessed aunty.


Even though the party was fixed for Saturday, I headed off to Makurdi on Thursday [of the actual birthday] to spend the day with the birthday girl. We spent it running around the house, eating pounded yam and driving around running errands with Grandma [my mum].

Cute Story: Immediately she sees a camera, she starts saying “cheeeeeeeeeese”….


Birthday Girl got a monster police truck and her face says it all


Saturday rolled around and it was so much fun with the entire family [extended inclusive]. There was so much food, laughs, partying, drinks, music, face paints, games, bouncy castles, hoops etc.

My other babies – Ngohide, Secivir and Baby Afa – were on cousin support duty

The pictures above are my favourite of the entire bunch because they captures their different personalities so well. Ngohide and Iveren are totally in the zone and having a moment while Secivir is in the corner giving ZERO fucks! Just look at her face! Lmao.


Outfit change to make room for the mayhem     

My baby girl…. I keep asking for kisses #ObsessedMuch #LifeInTechnicolour

I took these last night after bedtime shower… how precious! #CurrentFaves


We had such a lovely time, family bonding and everything nice. Happy birthday baby girl, may God bless and keep you happy always. Aunty loves you xx.


When I’m in Benue, I never pass up on the opportunity to get those mean #BenueBraids done and this trip wasn’t any different…. I’m feeling myself!!!


Also, I just discovered Ed Sheeran’s cover of O.T Genasis’s – I’m in love with the coco – and its been on repeat ever since. Its so unexpected and totally eargasmic. The Internet won the day I discovered this! Get you a piece if you’ve been carrying last like I’ve been 😀

Kisses xx

    Awwww! You guys really had a ball.

    As for Mr Sheeran’s cover of “Coco”, well, when I heard him pronounce “treinta y ocho”, I burst out laughing and I couldn’t listen to the rest of the song. And I haven’t gone back.

      Thank you B… We had a truly memorable day.
      I sure would love to be at Coco’s; if you send me deets in time, i’ll plan towards it.
      Lagos has been calling anyways..
      I loved the #BeingFemaleInNigeria inspired post but for some reason, my comment refused to post.
      I got frustrated and left it alone… my long, engaging comment 🙁

    Oh no, hate it when that happens. It’s enough to put me in a bad mood all day.
    I am leaving blogger for wordpress – the blogger template has given me enough problems to last a lifetime, though I have learnt a lot in the process.
    I feel like I should make some plans, at the moment I haven’t. It’s my birthday before hers and so I have been thinking about that one more. I would like a surprise, for both – I keep hinting.
