Beautiful nautical-themed 1st month birthday party for Winston’s and Hellen’s 2nd child, Aiden! Being a capable wedding planner/stylist at Rosette Designs & Co., colour coordination was definitely a given for Hellen. It was such a homely and cosy birthday celebration for them and their guests. The place was buzzing with many of their guests bringing their young kids as well, and I really love shooting kids because of their natural and innocent expressions!
I really admire parents who have 2 or more kids. To look after 1 young kid is already quite tough for a new parent. To go through the cycle again with a new born baby while juggling the attention of the older child must be really tiring, and this is on top of all the stress caused by work! I’ve always wondered how it will be like when the time comes for me and hubby to have our first kid. We have been married for slightly more than 3 years and questions on when we are having a kid are getting more fast and furious as you can imagine. Haha! It’s not that we don’t want to have kids, but thinking about putting the business aside for a few months always makes us think twice. I know my biological clock is ticking (being constantly reminded by friends and family)… and hubby recently told me that if we were to have kids, he would like to have at least 2, and ideally 3. Wow.. the first thought that went through my head was having to go through labour 3 times! And looking after 3 kids and the Big Baby (yes, that’s my hubby :p) seems like a tremendous task for me. I’m not sure if I can handle that, but as all mums would say, somehow you will have that strength when the time comes. Ok, back to hubby.. his rationale was that having 1 kid only would be quite lonely for the kid. By having 2 kids, there would be a brother/sister, but it will be down to 1 again in the house when one of them gets married. So.. he wants 3, so that at future family gatherings when 1 of the child is unable to make it, at least there’s still 2 children. I think he’s drawing reference from his own family. Hee hee.. This ‘whether/when to have a kid topic’ is a continuous and on-going discussion between the two of us, and perhaps, one day, this will be a reality! 😀
Ok, enough about my rambling above (haha!) and now to share the lovely pictures of Winston, Hellen, Savannah, and Aiden!
