Saturday is for Vivian's Party!!!

As I have mentioned before on this blog, my Baby Girl Vivian was born on a Saturday. Today she is exactly 33 weeks old. Saturdays have become special to me because of her birth. They are sort of bittersweet too, since each Saturday marks another week that Vivian grows older. But she also grows more clever, happier, more independent, smarter, sweeter and prettier each day. I can't help but feel Lucky, Happy, Content & Blessed.

Vivian and I have been to the States since July 12th. So, we have celebrated her 6-month and her 7-month Birthdays here so far. This month will be the 8th, we are also staying all through October. But then we have to go back home in Albania where Daddy is dying to see us since he misses his Girls. Since I didn't have a Baby Shower (it is not a tradition in Albania) and since when we celebrate Vivi's one-year Birthday we will be in Albania, My Parents wanted to throw a Party in her Honor, a Welcome Party if you will, since she will be leaving soon. They meant to do this as early as we got here in Michigan. But trying to get my entire extended family and some close friends on the same schedule was difficult. Finally we are having the party today and I am glad to say that everyone we invited will be able to attend. It will be about 40 of us altogether. I am excited and looking forward to it. I even bought Vivian a new dress for the occasion though the weather is Chilly and not collaborating. I will have to put her in a warmer dress with tights or leggings, instead. It is so fitting that this Party is today since today she is 33 weeks old and since Saturday is her day. I am sure we will have a great time. 

I will update later in the next week or so with some Photos from Today's Event & Cake. But, before I leave for today, I wanted to share a few late photos from the last month of Vivian & some Family. Enjoy them!!
