And Baby makes three

I had know you're in love when a reasonably comfortable pregnancy. After a terrible and depressing first trimester the second one was a breeze. My appetite was back with such a bang that my ability to gobble down three fully loaded sandwiches at a go had poor mom in a dilemma. On one hand I was finaly eating after weeks but the rate at I was going and gaining weight would make anyone worry. But we realised that this too was just another phase.
I read a lot of books, articles, blogs etc to prepare myself for mommyhood. Yes most of them have been helpful but ive come to realise that every situation is unique, every child is different and every parent learns. You do your trails on the first child, are pretty confident with the second and a complete pro with the third.
One thing I expected was to fall completely and utterly in love at the first site of my baby. Did it happen....NO....was I upset.....NO as I was too groggy after a major surgery, my hormones were raging making me feel like I had the mother of all PMSes and I was lost. Lost as to what to do next! Breastfeeding was a task, not at all as easy as they make it sound. I wish I was prepared mentally to expect it to be a toughie.
But did I eventually fall in love with my little guy. Oh YES I did. Head over heels. We took our time to get to know each other. Hour after hour at night would be my time alone with my little baby.  And little by little he stole my heart. And 11 months later he still makes me fall in love with him a little bit more each day.

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep,
Because reality is finally better than your dreams.

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.

Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.

Barn Entrance:
Our main door was decorated to look like a barn door.

Go Green with Snappi Diaper Fasteners!

If you're planning to go the cloth diaper route, Snappis are a must have! Made in South Africa, they are a great substitute for diaper pins and so much safer too. I cannot imagine trying to fumble around with safety pins while the baby is squirming.I love using my Snappi! This product makes using prefolds almost as easy as using disposables. In fact, they are so easy to use even daddy has figured them out! You can fasten the diaper with just one hand and they really stay. With snappis, I can easily close prefolds, flats, fitted flats, and non-snap fitteds! There's no metal and no chance of poking the baby. They are stretchy, reusable, and extremely durable. I've even washed a Snappi on accident and it was still perfect. The composition is 100% polyurethane ( thus safe for the baby). A single snappi can last you the life of diapering your child (as long as you don't lose it!). And to add to a list of pros, they come in a variety of boy, girl and neutral colors. Also, th…

Dr Seuss themed 1st Birthday!

It seems like yesterday that we brought our son Ronav home from the hospital, but a year has just flown by and all that we are left with are memories and lots of photos!
Since my husband and I are huge Dr Seuss fans, we decided to throw Ronav a themed birthday party to satisfy the child within us. The planning and execution took 2 months of burning the midnight oil as that was the only time we would get after putting Ronav to bed. All the decorations were hand made by us, only the balloons were outsourced. Here's how we did it.
The Invitations: Were sent via what's app and email 3 weeks before the party and was created on photoshop.

Reminders:  Were sent out 4 days before the party to get a better idea of the RSVPs. 

Thing 1 :
Ronav was Thing 1. We customized a T-shirt for him which read "Thing 1".

Mom & Dad of Thing 1 :
Mommy and Daddy got customized T-shirts too. They read "Mom of Thing 1" and "Dad of Thing 1".

Birthday Month Banner:  We took a …
