Sip & See...

A Sip & See - is an event where you can sip a beverage or beverages of your choosing and eat a light snack and see the baby. Give well wishes, blessings and gifts and then leave. loved it much better than the pressure of having a baby shower. Babby Nugget came before we could have the shower.

When you think you will be the only one at your party.

You ever had that feeling? You know the one where you invite the family and friends and it's just you all alone.

Um Yeah that one.

Well that is my fear but that is NOT what happened.

Today we celebrated the life and birth of Zion'Joy aka Baby Nugget Offically. It was exactly the way it needed to be and we sipped and we saw.

Stories were told and the memories were shared.

God and the universe places people exactly where they needed to be and I'm greatful. All was as it needed to be.

Pictures to follow because we love pictures.

What I wore:
Another pair of print wideleg pants a denim off the shoulder jacket actank underneath the jacket and a peacock belt at the waist and yellow headwrap to top it off.

I got my 1st ever real mother's day card and gift.

Fb has a an aplication called On This Day. On the Day of my Sip & See this popped up on my time line.

Happy Mom's day to all you MOTHERS out here in FB land. I hope someone is loving on you properly. Having said that I am very grateful to have had a loving mother I am also very grateful to my loving sister for my nieces and nephew.

Having said that here is my PSA:

    Sounds a wonderful way to celebrate Zion'Joy's birth.  Glad you had a good time with your friends and family. 

    Gorgeous, happy pictures as always.

    I love that PSA! You just never know, do you???

    You look very happy as a new mom, and so content with your friends gathered around you. I love the idea of a Sip and See and only wish we all could have packed in there for the viewing. Congratulations again and happy early Mother's Day!!!

    Looks like a great day LeDonna!
    I love the idea of a sip and see. I've not heard of this before.
    I'm so glad you had a nice time!

  • Joyce B replied 3 years ago

    Such a nice gathering and pictures. You look beautiful and little Zion is very interested in conversing with the lady.

  • JAileen replied 3 years ago

    Did you actually think no one would show up to see Zion'Joy? Our reality when my son was a baby: people came to see him and NOT us! This sounds like a nice concept for a party. You both look great. She is darling.

  • Ryce replied 3 years ago

    Oh so sweet!
    Yes, as a guest, I much prefer a Sip n' See to a shower. Because, let's face it, what we all really want is to see the baby!
    Thanks for sharing another of ZJ's milestones with us!

  • rachylou replied 3 years ago

    Ah! If only we could have all been there too! So much fun!

  • Jane replied 3 years ago

    Such a nice name for a gathering "sip and see". You both look beautiful. It looks great fun and a wonderful day to remember. 

  • Lyn D. replied 3 years ago

    I like this idea!
    Easier to have a few visitors at once rather than unplanned Pop-ins when you are still very tired and getting the hang of life as a new Mum!

  • deb replied 3 years ago

    Fun day! you and nugget look beautiful!

  • shevia replied 3 years ago

    Oh that remember the day post is great - even if life has changed for you, it is a fabulous message and great reminder how life is full of surprises. I raise my cup for a sip of coffee for both of you.

  • Flytigress replied 3 years ago

    Awwww, thanks for sharing!  So much happiness!

  • Ledonna N. replied 3 years ago

    Thank you all so much we had so mu h fun. Baby ZJ only cries when she has to go into the car seat. She is a great baby and sleeps 80% of the time.

    Everyone loves to see the baby. I'm so greatful. I always feel pressure that i have to be more. Lol it's a growing edge.

    Apparently a Sip & See is a thing the new generation has started. From what I understand in the United States down south it wa started.

    The young folks do all of this:
    Baby Gender reveal
    Baby Shower
    Sip & See

    My 24 year old neice told me about it. I said that was to much. Lol but the Sip and SEE was perfect.

  • Barbara Diane replied 3 years ago

    I just heard about gender reveals and went to my first. It was fun.
    I love this idea of a sip and see. My friend just became a grandma again and I can't wait to see the baby so I'm going to tell her about this new custom.
    You look so well and happy. So glad you enjoyed the event. And she is beyond precious.

  • Sal replied 3 years ago

    What a great occasion, you all look splendid and so happy!!  I love the idea of the day.

    Life has some unexpected twists does it not!!  I hope you had a wee giggle at the Facebook memory:)

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Love Sip 'n See and wish I were there! It is a great idea to let everyone see the baby without the fuss of each paying you a separate visit.
    You and Zion look wonderful. It is amazing how a baby changes our lives and stretches us.

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    Motherhood agrees with you, Ledonna. FABULOUS all round. 

  • Lisa replied 3 years ago

    What a great idea and it sounds like it was a fun time!

  • bella replied 3 years ago

    i had to google this idea, and I think i think it's fabulous! I am glad to hear that yours went well. Many kisses for the little one and her fab mom! 

  • Kate replied 3 years ago

    The Sip n' See is such a great idea. I only wish we could all have been there to see you and little Nugget. 

  • marianna replied 3 years ago

    Love this. I had a baby shower but I totally see the appeal of a Sip & See! What fun to be able to show off your cute lil nugget!

  • Janet replied 3 years ago

    LOL at your PSA! Funny how we can never say never, and yet...

    Sip'n'See is an excellent idea, and it looks like you had a great time. You are beaming, and rightfully so. :-)
