The Rock ‘N Roll Birthday Bash

We, that’s my husband and I, deliberately themed our triplets’ first birthday bash without any specific reason, except that I just received The Beatles’ tees for triplets and the idea popped out of it. Plus, it’s been one helluva rocknroll year, full of laughters, tears, happiness and sorrow all came at once. So it’s time to celebrate a little.

Here’s the birthday invitation. We didn’t invite so many people as we wanted it to be intimate with closest families and friends.

It took me a couple of months to prepare everything although almost all of those things were done last minute. Thanks to the printing house I found on Instagram that kept on postponing to the very end. However, Instagram did a huge favor on the preparation. Between work and three babies to take care, I could easily manage all the small things in just a click away.

The souvenirs took most of my time with excrutiating details to deal with from cooking the caramel popcorn, sticking the labels to tins and jars, to cutting and adjusting the stickers. I swear I’m not that kind of person who’s talented at small details. Meanwhile, the OCD part of me kept telling me to do it perfectly. In the end, I learned nothing is perfect in this world, including parenting. I could never be a perfect mother to my kids no matter how much I try, but I’d surely give my best no matter what. Wow the lesson I learned from sticking labels to tins that look pretty much like this:

Having been inspired by so many dessert corner pictures on the internet, I created my own which looks like this:

The rocknroll cake made by a home bakery I found on Instagram. I sent her the drawing of what kind of cake I wanted, and she made the cake almost exactly how I pictured it to be, except much better.

And the birthday triplets seemed to like it as well!

At first, the girls didn’t seem to feel comfortable around the guests. But it only took a while, the ice broken once they played and laughed with just about anyone.

Happy Birthday, Babies!

11.58, 12.00, 12.02 May 7, 2013. My life has changed forever since then. For the better, for sure. I’ve fallen in love even way before, and I fell even more when I first saw your faces. My daughters, my love, my life. The apple of my eyes, the air that I breathe, my whole life and after. The ones I’d trade my soul for. Your names are on my prayers day and night.

My babies my love,
Have a healthy, happy, useful life.

May Be Babies

As the girls’ Big One’s approaching and their new skills of learning to walk as well as babbling with a few more consonants improved, everyone in the house gets extra activities and hopefully, power. Packages come everyday, yes, almost 90% of the birthday bash prep is done through online shopping. We’re not throwing an extravagant or huge party, instead, we’d like to make it warm, fun and memorable for us and the very limited guests.

Other than that, we still took some time to get a baby massage for triplets. Yes, their very first professional yet traditional massage conducted by a 96-yo Mak O’om. The process didn’t take long, but the soothing of three crying babies did.

Here are a few things triplet girls love to do nowadays.
