Happy Birthday Temi

Hi whats up everyone? I can see everyone has been interested in my motherhood journey. Loving the comments and don't worry will continue to update you all.

Anyways today is my darling's birthday, he says I have given him the best birthday present ever that's our little girl Yosola, who by the way is 5 weeks old already. Wow I can say time flies. Let me chip this in, she is beginning to know the difference between night and day and not confuse it anymore, so I have started having to sleep for 5 hours straight in the night.... That is pure heaven.

Back to Temi's birthday. I will like to say that he has been there for me. He really has been my knight in shinning armour. You know all these stories about the woman in Africa handling the kids alone, cos it is the their job: this doesn't apply to my family. We live in Lagos Nigeria, and we both are full africans, born and bred in Nigeria, but I must say if I have sleepless night cos of the baby, Temi also has sleepless night as well. We take turns in feeding the baby, that's why I thank the good Lord for who ever invented the breast pump, and the electric one at that. It enables any other person other than the mother to feed the baby breast milk. 

I know this during my pregnancy journey which wasn't easy for me, emotionally, as I was always worried, Temi was there all the step of the way. I remember one day when I went for my doctor's visit as usual, this day I went alone. As I got to the reception, the receptionist asked me about my husband. She wanted to know why he didn't come along with me. It was then I realized that they had all observed the fact that he came along for my prenatal visits. 

On the 25th of this month, which is in two days is our anniversary, maybe as a writer I would write a small love note I am not sure about that, but I will talk more about the love of my life..

I thank God for giving him to me and I really appreciate it.. No complains at all. This is not a lie just for the cameras it's the truth.

So once again Happy birthday Temi
Bon anniversaire mon amour.
Je T'aime de tout mon coeur.

  9. Its so nice to see a woman eulogising her man. Temi is definitely a lucky man. I hope he knows it

  10. Happy Birthday to 'Uncle' o! God bless him richly for being there all the way for you. I was reading something the other day and it really made me reflect deeply. Marriages that thrive are those founded on companion-ship or what the writer called love-friendship and this is when you get to a point in your relationship where your main need is to fulfill the needs of your spouse. In pleasing/supporting/being there for them, you are fulfilled. Makes you think, doesn't it? This is what I wish you both. This is what I wish us all who are married cos I think that is what God intended marriage to be like. Huge hugs and baby pecks to Yosola.

  11. Awww, now I am feeling mushy...
