Yes, it's a loooong loooong time since I posted. But to make up for the delay I want to share the sweet news of the arrival of Nithilan, my baby boy..
He was born on 22 Jan and has turned our lives altogether since then.. How I spend almost every moment of my waking existence is determined by his needs and wishes.
Motherhood is very demanding indeed... Sleep-deprivation, endless rounds of feeding and nappy-changing, managing sudden bouts of unfathomable crying, total upheaval in one's own health, etc etc. But eclipsing all these is the cute smile he gives from his cradle when he wakes in the morn and sees me, when he drifts away to sleep after a feed, when he looks at someone or something and recognizes, and nowadays at many random(?) sights and sounds..
The pic above was taken one night when the little imp was giving me a tough time without any signs of sleeping(despite yawning a LOT), even after I rocked him for an hour. Quite a charmer, isn't he?? :-)
Well, it has been a year of blogging now.. And my blog is all the more special to me since it was conceived at around the same time as my baby. This joy of having created something of one's own is so much so cherishable as I hold my son in my arms... Hope both of them grow in tandem and I give the attention and care they need at every stage.. all the way..
