Are you looking for a funny and useful mom blog?

Good, you came to the right place!Hi, my name is Chantal Sarkisian and I am a new mom who had a sweet baby boy named Victor in Feb 2013. Join me on this blog to follow my new mommy journey while I am on my maternity leave. I'll ramble quickly about all the random thoughts that go through my head when I am feeding in the middle of the night, or trying to put my son to sleep. I'll also blog about my favourite things, give you helpful tools, and explore activities to do (mostly in the Ottawa region) with kids and maybe some product reviews too! Thanks for reading!

First birthday & Baptism Party

It's finally all over! Victor's baptism and first birthday was a success. Lots of stress and lots of planning.
Timing wasn't the best, since I just got laid off, but little V deserved the best!

We had Victor baptized at the Armenian Church of Ottawa. The Godfather, plays an exceptionally important role and even wears traditionnal attire.

Here are some pictures of his baptism and party.

My favourite pic- Victor Salad!

What a feast!

Update- July 9 2014 awarded this post for "Best Decoration". How fun! My first award as a blogger! All the hard work sure paid off.

  3. Oh wow, the First birthday & Baptism Party looks so enjoyable. Thanks a ton for sharing these details here. Anyways, I too would be celebrating my little angel’s first birthday at one of the venues in NYC and after a long debate we have settled on the Rainbow theme for this bash.
