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.

Ronav’s first experience with Canvas painting

Back in January this year, Ronav’s grandparents gifted him an easel, canvas papers and paints.  We spent one Saturday afternoon creating this finger painting. He painted the entire thing himself with a few inputs from me.  At that time he had little knowledge of what the roots of trees really do. So when I explained the roots help in anchorage and nutrition, he made them round and big to give his trees maximum nutrients.  He also painted two suns. When I asked him the reason for doing that, this was his explanation “One sun is up in the sky to give us light and one sun is close to my trees to help them grow stronger and  taller quickly.” The imaginative minds of young kids!  Needless to say that we have saved this one!

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.

Invitations:
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.

Paper Rosettes, Streamers: Were hand made …
