2013-Year Review

2013 is about to end...., couple of hours and it will become history....that's what happens with bygones...I am writing this post not in one go, I am writing this post in my mind while I m brushing my teeth, while I m combing my hair, I am writing while I m cooking in the kitchen.....while I m watching tv.....and so on....and that's how I m writing this post.

This year has been generous to me, it has given me many good memories and also opportunities to fulfil my ambitions for which I m thankful. This year is also special because we, me & Akash, we decided to be responsible for bringing another human being in this world,  out of seed of love and purity,  not for the sake of continuity of generation but for the continuity of humanity.

I hope that 2014 is promising as 2013 was, even more than that....I hope it brings love, luck, and joy to our life....Wishing for a happy new year for everyone.

This hour :

It is  7 pm, I m alone.....its quiet inside but outside it's thundering hard, its raining,  freezing winter wind is blowing mercilessly.....I can feel the chill....I peek out of  the window and see the mother pigeon,  sitting cosyly on it's newborns, it worries me as I know it's very cold outside,  I should do something....but what should I do? I throw a piece of cloth at it, I want her to grab this piece of cloth and wrap it round it's newborns....but it moves further away not sensing what I want it to do...it won't understand I say to myself and close the window but I am not at rest, I check again and again but the cloth lies untouched....I look heaven wards and pray to God,  to take best care of the birds,.., it thunders again and this time more loudly....making me more glum....   I retire from the window to my bed, turn on the heater pull of my moccasin socks and sit quietly listening to the beating of raindrops on the window sill...hoping it to stop soon...that's all what I can do for now...

What went by & what's ahead

Time for introspection.....

Welcome to this world :D

Yes, it was a week or 2 earlier that I had posted the pics of a mother pigeon who was tirelessly tending to its two eggs and now the babies are here..., it was yesterday morning that I as usual peeked out of my window to check on the progress that I was joyfully amazed to see 2 babies all curled up on themselves under the protective feathers of their mother....it was a wonderful sight :)

DIY printed baby sheet

I am so happy, I printed a cotton sheet for my baby...lately I have been making this stuff at home....there are certain things that I just wanted to do myself, like I wanted the first sheet were the baby will sleep all snuggled up for the first time to be made by me :) I even made a baby wrap ....all this keeps me well and busy and plus I get to communicate more with my child, and I believe this will strengthen our bond.... :)
Merry Christmas ♡♡

Story so far

They were young, full of energy,  they believed in love,  in soul mates...they used to gaze at starry sky at night thinking about the love of their life,they used to write poems. Then they met...oh no it was not the "love at first sight" thing, but with time something changed , they were drawn towards eachother....the girl was "damsel in distress", the boy was her saviour,  her hero....they fell in love....it was a beautiful feeling,  they found their soulmate....then they got married....they loved passionatly, they also fought over trivial things...she cried and he madeup, both said their share of sorries....they laughed, cried, made plans, and so much more....and now they are starting a new chapter,  they are going to be  parents :)  they are happy and anxious too....that's their story so far...

Art is in my heart

Huuhh.....bored, bored, bored...yup
I feel tired all the time :(  sob sob but particularly today I feel like a lazy cow...I think its normal in pregnancy....but  admist all the laziness, I managed to brush up my creativity with the help of pics art, it's a fun application to work with...lots of interesting features.....

So here's what I made:

Monday, December 9, 2013


Today I woke up a bit late than usual at 9am....I felt some of leakage, initially I paid no attention, I thought it was just like that....but after a seconds it stuck me that it should not happen....I mean it could me fluid surrounding the baby and that really shook me up....earth below was shaken and I actually felt weak in my knees.....I told Akash and we headed to the hospital. We left home by 9.30 and to add up  to my worries, there was traffic congestion everywhere....roads were packed and it was really frustrating. I felt my heart beating in my ears...all sort of scary thoughts were just playing out in my mind.

We reached hosptal by 12 noon...my doctor examined and announced that there was nothing to worry as infection seems to be the cause of the discharge, she gave few pills and an told me to follow up after 3 days....   This feeling that your baby might be distressed really knocks the breath out of your lungs and the assurance that it is well and health really works like magic, it brings tears of joy and smile on your lips....I was relieved.

I have realised that motherhood is the most amazing thing that a woman experiences....its very difficult to explain the bond that you share with the tiny being in your belly but it makes you feel complete and more than any thing else a mother is always concerned about the safety and wellbeing of its child.

6th month...

Its my 6th month, things are going fine, my baby is moving and I feel the movements every now and then, it feels amazing :)  Baby is  growing and as the time will progress there will be less room for it....which I have already started to feel.....I feel occasional stretch in my abdomen...especially after meals. well dear baby I know its not that easy for you as well..

I am making a baby bed sheet, I learned this embroidery stuff in high school and thought of giving it a shot,  it looks preety fine..., it will be complete in few weeks. Guess what I am not alone in this motherhood journey, there is a pigeon hatching its beautiful eggs on our porch window....

My birthday

Hmm....my birthday is over.....as much I was anxious, it turned out to be a great one indeed....why?? Well because of many good reasons....

1) I was not that tired, I was full of energy.
2) We shopped for the whole family :D that is me, Akash and yes for the baby as well....for the first time :D we got a baby book to record all the baby memories and milestones. We both were very happy and emotional as well.

We discussed few things.....and decided to shop every month certain things for the baby...prepare ourselves so that we are all ready when it is the final moment....off lately I have sort of developed the acceptance to the fact that I am going to be a mum and should be ready to accept the change and adapt better to the changes that are gonna come my way....

Here are few shots from the day....
Credit goes to Akash :P

Thoughts on turning 30

Here it comes again....like the day, night, the seasons...yes I am talking about my birthday, which is tomorrow (8th Nov)....but this time it's making me anxious....why?? Because it's my 30th birthday (oh my god)...I am turning 30 tomorrow.....where did all the years went by?? I have no clue....and now this figure of 30 is knocking on my door.....its no big deal you may say but wait a minute....think about it....even the characters in famous show "friends" were overwhelmed when it was Joey's 30th birthday..... there is so much to do in life...I m going to be a mom soon....I am not so sure whether what I am writing is making an sense or not but I am bit (ok a more than a bit) anxious currently..I tried to but i don't know how to express my self....

Diwali celebrations

With lights, sweets, fun and friends, we had a very special diwali this year...although Akash's mood was bit gloomy in the beginning as we couldn't go to his parents for the ocassion but by the evening he was all reved up and full of energy....we had called one of our friends for the ocassion since they were also alone, away from home....I know little about diwali puja n all but I managed to do what little I know....after all diwali is all about fun n frolic....that we all are good at :P

I am in my 5th month now....feeling the changes in my body, it seems as if in an overnight my weight has increased, and the girth of my belly has increased too...I feel little unsteady may be beacuse of the shift of gravity....on the other note...my backache is lot better and so is my frequent urinary urgency, now I can sleep better at night. And I am eagerly waiting for my baby to be in my arms....I can't wait for that moment :) but I guess that's what this 9 months journey tells us; to be patient and let the baby grow inside...

This picture was gifted to me by my friend, Anshul, she is a wonderful artist and its her own creation, this is the most amazing,  heart warmimg gift that I have ever recieved....everytime I glance at this pic, I moist my eyes.....Thanks Anshul for this beautiful drawing.... I am going to frame this one :D

DIY Paper flowers + Introspection

Today I am not feeling my best self, I was in my bed till 11.00 AM clinging on to the quilt and not ready to get up. I was thinking about stuff, about my life ahead, about the baby, how my life will be. I was also thinking about the future of my blog...as i am not posting every day...right now I am not too busy but with each advancing day I am getting tired, I feel lethargic, its still the 4th month only...what will happen to me in coming months and once the baby is final my arms.... how will I manage routine. I will be on my toes all the time.... I will be busy in the world of diapers, burps, sleepless nights...I know a baby smile is the priceless thing  in the world... May be I am too paranoid at the moment....or its state of my mind while I am blogging, I don't know....it all will be clear in coming months....

However after so much pondering and brain jostling, I managed to drag myself out of bed...I made few DIY paper flowers...I also tried doily paper to make some flowers...though they look plain,Ii think it will be better idea to color the doily paper first and then make flowers. There is a lot to be done as Diwali is just around the corner....we also got a beautiful brass lamp as today was Dhanteras, and its good to buy gold or utensils on this day...it brings good luck and fortune...it was titillating to go out as the market was dazzling with chandeliers, elegant light fixtures,contemporary to ultra chic gift ideas, rangoli color,  flowers and people...it was a refreshing site.
