Me:) Siddharth how are you feeling, after the birth of Reet
Siddharth:) Independent.

I could understand the meaning when he came home after the school. His laces were tied like this..
He found his own way of dealing with the laces.. and said very innocently..
आप जो बांधते हो वो खुल जाते है और मैं जो बांधूंगा वो खुलते नही..
Great going son..

Sports day!!

Reet's First outing memory click...
ममा आप अगर रीत को vaccination  ले जा सकते हो तो मेरे sports day पे भी ला सकते हो..I thought i will surprise my son by taking his little sister for this lovely occasion, but he already asked for it..

Sports day, a day of demonstration of the physical activities, determination , sportsmanship and  how best they can balance their bodies.. This happens at the end of the academic year. I always look forward to it as it presents a lot of enthusiasm among kids and parents both. Yes we also go thru the whole activity... 

The day started at 9 am, and me and Reet reached at 11am with my brother during the tiffin time of kids. The moment i reached we went to meet Siddharth and his whole class came out in seeing Reet in Vivek's lap. They all were so eager to meet her, to see her and everyone wanted to hold her. Each and every kid got excited and they happily posed for me.

Reet enjoyed love and affection from Siddharth's friends and their parents, sun in her father and mamu's lap while i clicked Siddharth and his friends in different activities... It had been a great day in the sun...

Hi Reet!!

The start of this year is with the new life in our family.  After a labor pain of more than 12 hours I gave birth to my second child on Jan 7th, 2012. 
Arrival at Cradle when she is still inside me
When doctor asked me to kiss the baby I kissed her and welcomed her with a warm smile in this beautiful world.   “Hi Reet “were the first words from me to her.  This name was thought before I conceived her. She is Reet (meaning of culture in Hindi is Reet), as she is going to bring the culture, tradition to our house. 

The complete nine months has been a journey mixed of emotions, anxiety and adventures.  The first trimester was full of nausea, and the last two trimesters were full of adventure. Me, Vivek and Siddharth had great fun and always talked about her, how our life will be different and more beautiful when she will come. 

And today when she is more than a month old, It seems that she was already there in our life. She is a cute little sister to Siddharth and his birthday present from me (It was Siddharth who persuaded me to go for the second child). I look upon her more as my companion in life, a cute little princess for Vivek.

We all are pleased with joy with this little angel in our life. The whole life is around her and nothing seems more important than to be just be with her for all of us. 

This post is dedicated to this bundle of joy in our life, to these cute little feet who has come to our house and when I look at these ones, these are the words came to my mind..

मेरे घर आई एक नन्ही परी!!
