Three days ago, on Saturday, it was my newborn niece birth. She is my sister's second daughter. It was a happy occasion to see this soft creature after waiting nine months. If my sisters, brother, and my parents were so eager to see her, how about her mother and father. They are so happy to have another daughter with -of course- tiring feeling of her mother. When I saw my sister for the first sight in the hospital, my eyes filled with soft tears for knowing and remembering  how it's so difficult to be a mom; how she bears an extreme pains to see her baby. Now let me introduce her to you:

Her aunts preparations for her birth:

Her aunts, ( my sisters and I ), prepared some arrangements for her birth like decorations and wrapped up sweets. It was my task to decorate her room and guests room.

I used  pink balloons, ribbons, and pink chiffon fabric. My sisters task was to buy chocolates and wrap them up using circular pink fabric and pink satin ribbon to tie the wraps.

My another arrangement to her birth is bitter orange oil that I prepared last year because it should be matured (like wine). It's so simple to prepare, just cut the immature bitter oranges, fill them with olive oil and keep it away for more than 10 months. This oil is very benefit and useful for newborn babies who suffer from colic. Its usage is not by drinking it but by anointing the baby abdomen especially around the hub. So, mums could sleep now :D

Her aunts gifts to her:

My elder sister's gift is a small bed with a stand to move easily. It's very beautiful with nice decorations and off white color.

My gifts to her is a special box of clothes. The box has ten pieces of clothes - including under wears - that baby requires to wear them in first birthday or first week.

These are the clothes after I  separated them from the box

My younger sister's gift is not for Sedra but for her sister Sana. It's a baby that speaks, drinks milk, and does pee-pee :D So, she could feel like a mum :D
