First Valentine Celebration For Andreas

Posted by Kero at Thursday, February 18, 2010
 Note: Maybe I should have posted this a long time ago but I never had the chance. I am thankful there is Mommy Moments to capture and reminisce those cherished days.

My son was 13 months when we officially celebrated his first Valentine date. I gave birth to him via CS so I was still horribly fat, breastfeeding, and recuperating in February 2008. Frankly, I had no idea how our Vday went on back then. We were just probably catching our sleep with a two-month old to take care of hihi.

Saturday, February 14, 2009 we chose to celebrate our second Valentine as a family at Sezzam, Kempinski Hotel. The restaurant has been highly recommended with its steam, flame, and bake options included in their intercontinental buffet. The 800-seater dining area boasts a view of the Ski Dubai. There is magician, face painting, and bouncy castle to keep children occupied while parents indulge in overflowing food.

We just arrived and our table had a great view of the skiers. Andreas immediately climbed up to look closer.
 
But before the buffet opened, he decided to eat his Milupa biscuits.
And went on to play in the bouncy castle with the other kids. It won't be long before he fell asleep so Hubby and I were able to devour sushi, pasta, kebabs, and the sweetest pastries in silence.


After our desert and a huge cup of Cafe Americano, we decided to take Andreas to Bastakiya, Dubai Creek for a stroll. Fortunately, Drums Of The World were performing with the public so a well-rested Andreas joined the beat of the drum.

One of Andreas's many firsts. I'm sure that the last photo would be one of the memorable ones when he gets a little older.
