Melina Nefeli's birthday- Wiccaning

Greetings blogfriends! How are you? We celebrated Melina Nefeli's first birthday last Saturday. My baby is not a baby anymore. She walks, she is constantly mumbling and if it wasn't for her almost bold and blond head she wouldn't look at all like one!
We had her Wiccaning in the balcony, because that would be easier for het but it turned out beautiful. She was on our table and her Godmother,her dad and I held hands creating a circle around! We had to let go once because she kept eating our papers(babies these days have no respect for rituals!!). There were four dressed candles that smelled fantastic marking the corners and there were also symbols for each of the elements. We chanted three different prayers, that called upon the elements, elementals ,our ancestors and the Goddess to bless her and guide her.
 She wore a protective talisman of moonstone  that I wore during my pregnancy. Also I made her a wreath out of ivy that she wouldn't wear, so I wore it and looked like a fairy!She would have worn a tutu dress I made her but I can't sew and it was small. So, I removed the tutu skirt and put it over a dress of hers and she was like a tiny princess-bride-fairy. I will show you pictures as soon as I upload them!
The rest of her birthday involved a monster cake I built out of 5 cakes and a pot of icing, being eaten by three adults a baby and two neighbors in less than 24 hours! Now that's an accomplishment! Of course I will show you pictures of that too!
When the evening fell we headed of for down town, where she wemy to her first concert. First we heard classical and then jazz! 21 of June is the European day of music, so the event was wonderful. She loved it too of course! Then we returned home and mom sang while dad played the guitar, like every other night!
She had a lot of fun and so did we. We didn't have a party and that was a great idea!So, how was your Solstice?

A year already? Time has flown! I'm looking forward to the wiccaning photos!
May the Goddess hold Melina Nefeli in the circle of Her arms always.

Happy birthday melina. What a wonderful day you had. Our solstice was typical for midwinter. Cold wet and very windy. But I don't mind. We relit our fire and had a wonderful meal and counted our blessings. Enjoy yours xx

My goodness, a year!

The image of your little Melina eating the paper for ritual made me giggle. Why is it that babies, kitten and puppies have no sense of ritual space? Attila once ate a candle and half a rosemary plant. Terrible, I tell you!

My Solstice was lovely and I sensed that yours was the same. ♥
