My Wish for you!

My Wish for you!

Motherhood you have wrecked me so beautifully well. What I’d give to turn back the hands of last few years and redo it all over again. Not because we did something wrong but we did everything so right.

Read something similar somewhere and it couldnt be more fit today as I write this.

Bringing a baby into the world is a big deal. We too jumped in the bandwagon and did it anyway. The first year was hard but we survived. Just when we though we got a hang of it, we did it again. We decided to bring a second baby into our lives. Very unsure of our decision we were still waiting patiently for our second baby girl. Then came little Mila into the world on Feb 15th 2015. What a day that was!

I cried my eyeballs out when I saw her first, probably cried more than when I did with my first born. I do not know why I did though. Maybe it was the mom guilt on me that I now have to share my love between these two girls or maybe it was just her sweet little face that dug deep into my chest the minute I held her. But I cried! We were nervous about introducing Mila to Asha (her big sister, her soon to be best friend). We just did not know what to expect. But from the minute Asha laid her eyes on Mila, Mila became hers. She became her pride and joy, her ultimate possession that she wanted to share with the world. The union couldn’t be any more perfect.

My little Mila is graced with so much beauty and sweetness that even a stranger will walk upon to say hi to her. Batting of her big bold eye lashes are sure to win and break a million hearts. This sweet girl of mine is the most content baby in the world. She is her big sister’s shadow! She is her confidant! She is her life long best friend! Little M is sweeter than honey but is so courageous. Bless her little heart, she is never scared to take risks. Some days we feel like we did not do justice to her by not doing things we did for her sister like hovering over her 24/7 and others. But you know what, that is what made her what she is today at a tender age of two. She is confident and she is very friendly and she is just mellow. Her personality is so charming that we cannot even get mad at her antics for more than a mere second. She is amazing in every single way!

So for my wish to you today baby girl, may you achieve every single goal you will ever have in your heart. May you get the most perfect sunrise and sunsets every single day of your life. May you always remain the best baby sister in the world. May you always have that special someone to look up to whether it is us or your big sister. May you never have to feel alone. My little Mila Lena, may you get the very best the world has to offer. Even when your daddy and I are not around, may you still lean in on your sister for support.

I am SO grateful to call this girl mine. It makes me a little sad every time I think how fast she is growing up. But I am looking forward to seeing her personality come out more and looking forward to loving her more.

I may not be the best mom in the world but you my darling you sure are the one of our best creations. You are our pride and joy and  we lucked out having you as our daughter. My wish for you today is that may you have the best birthdays year after year. I love you Mila!

Survival Mode!

Posted on

Hello Everyone-

I am here and as you can see from the topic of this blog, I am in a survival mode basically 🙂 . As any new moms, I too am enjoying the “perks” feeding the baby, cleaning up the baby and rocking the baby to sleep and REPEAT and then REPEAT again! So I am doing the very same thing and catering to my newborn’s demand these days. Add to that- I have a 2 year old whose energy is non-stop and is always on-the-go. Little A is now a big sister to her baby sister or “baby sista” (as she calls her) M. Miss M came into the world on Feb 15th at 11am and since then our lives have changed quite a bit. Mostly little A’s life has changed a LOT! She no longer is the only child in our household. She is now promoted to big sister and she got her BFF. It is all amazing and overwhelming at the same time. I am currently on my maternity leave taking care of myself (more like trying to survive these first few weeks), taking care of M and sort of taking care of A (thank god for my mom who is taking care of A full time). Also thanks to the hubby who lends a helping hand when he is home day and night. So you get the idea how hectic life has become.

Taking a 15 minute shower is my daily escape, apart from checking FB and Instagram and the parenting blogs all day and night while nursing the bebe. I am really hibernating in this cold weather so its a good thing I have a winter baby? Hopefully when the weather gets better I can take the babes out on a stroll and miss A will be possibly going to preschool (even just PT).

Apart from the constant feeding and waking up, M is a good baby so far. She is nursing like a champ and mostly sleeps or poops if she is not eating. Mind you she does eat ALL THE TIME though! But things are working out so far.

I am actually glad we made it this far. Little M will be a month old on Sunday (time literally flew this past few weeks). I am excited to see what her little personality is going to be like. Is she going to be stubborn and very determined like her big sister or is she the laid back kid? Only time will tell. For now I am just so crazy in love with my girls. My little A ADORES her little sister and that is a huge blessing. If she had acted out then I don’t know how I could have made it this far but I am glad our girl made us proud. No jealousy what-so-ever (Yet)! Maybe she is too young to get jealous? Maybe she is going to throw a fit right after this post, who knows!

Anyway, via this post just wanted to quickly update you all on my progress and to let you all know I am still here 🙂 .Will post more later! Until then PRAY for me lol. Oh here is a picture of my cuties 🙂 .

The last few days..

The last few days..

Hello!

We are at a home stretch now. I have less than two weeks until my estimated due date although that really doesn’t mean much in my case. I may go overdue like I did with A or I may just get a surprise before then. I am hoping this little munchkin comes before or around her due date cause I am getting super impatient now. I know life will not be the same for us anymore , in fact it will be crazy for a while but I am ready to take on the new challenge and enjoy a newborn baby in my arms once again 🙂 .

Things that are in progress are: the girls room, few “essentials” for the baby need to be bought, need to do a few TLC items for myself (mani-pedi, hair highlights and so on- priorities right? ). When I think about the laundry list of items I feel like I am not ready for her arrival but then I am SO ready. Before the munchkin comes I am going to have the cleaners come and deep clean the house as well and also de-clutter and deep clean the family car as well. Funny how my “nesting” instinct kicks in in bouts every few days.

I think I also need to “brush up” on my taking care of newborn technique. Its only been two years since A was born but somehow I have managed to forget how many times they are up at night and how many feedings they need in a day. So may be reading up a few articles wont be a bad idea.

What else? Hmm. Oh yep we don’t have a name for the baby girl yet (SURPRISE!) . Yeah seriously we are going crazy trying to find the “perfect” name (is there such a thing as a perfect name?). Some nights I cant sleep because I don’t have a name for her. Some days I take it easy and think I will think of something on my way to the hospital. In A’s case we had all that mystery already solved by now. This time around not so much. So yep that’s a biggie- FIND A NAME FOR THE BUBS ASAP!

I will keep you all posted with the progress or lack-of-thereof 🙂 . Please bear with me and my insanely delayed blog posts. For today I want to wish you all a very happy Friday. TGIF!

Oh here is a picture of little miss sunshine to bring a smile to your face 🙂

Asha all smiles :)

Down to single digits countdown!

Posted on

Good Afternoon and Happy Holidays-

Second Bump!

Yes yes yes, we are finally down to the single digits weekly countdown! Only 9 (or perhaps less) more weeks to go until we get to see our little princess and miss A’s little sister. As always- things are pretty hectic around here. December is one of the craziest month for me, one for the obvious reasons CHRISTMAS and second it is the month when I usually need to do my planning for A’s birthday. This year December has been busier than ever. I still need to actually plan the second birthday party for A, need to buy and wrap Christmas gifts , need to do my prep work for baby number 2. Prep work meaning I NEED to get her room ready and I still have not started it yet, I need to sort and wash and fold all the newborn clothes, little A’s room has been a mess and I need to organize that, need to pack my hospital bag (ok that doesn’t take very long but still..) , also need to FINALIZE a name for the second bebe. We have no clue what we are going to call her yet.

A’s birthday celebration prep work needs to be done which involves thinking about food, drinks, decors, favors for the kids and what not. This year I am slacking big time. This is her last birthday as an only child so I want to make it special but with the pace I am working on it looks impossible! Lets pray I am able to deliver a fun day for her at least.

I am still working full time (of course) and it does get busy! So working and being very pregnant doesn’t make it easy on me. I get exhausted by the end of the day. Of course, running after a toddler and a Boxer dog does not help whatsoever. Thank god I have an amazing family that stick by me through thick and thins.

These are just a few things on my plate right now. Just thinking about these make me exhausted lol. I hope I survive these last few weeks. I know when the second one comes I would probably think back and say “December was easy peasy” lol.

I have a few new posts coming up soon so stay tuned 🙂 .

Happy Holidays everyone. Eat, drink and be merry!

My little A is getting a baby sister!

Posted on

Dear readers

Please excuse my lack of frequency in blog posting, I have been as you can imagine super B.U.S.Y! So the big news that I have and want to share with you all is that we are expecting, again! Little A will not be so little anymore as she is going to be a big sister soon. We are adding another little baby doll in our family in Feb 2015. As excited as we are , we are super nervous as well.

Excited because we know A would LOVE having a little sibling and a sister at that. She would love to hang out with another baby in the family and “show-off” her big sister skills. Just to think about the bond between my two little girls while growing up makes me giddy with happiness. They will be bffs for life or perfect partners in crime , we will see 🙂 .

Nervous because A has been the only child so far and is used to getting ALL the attention to herself from everyone. Also nervous as I know A was a difficult baby and if the new baby is as difficult as A was, I have no idea how I will ever survive two kids.

Really hoping the second babe is going to be “easier” (dare I say such a word?). I was a zombie the full year when A was born because of constant nursing cycles and endless sleepless nights. Heck I didn’t get a good night’s sleep until A turned almost 18 months! Yep, 18 months! So praying that wont be the case with the new one.

There are so many lessons learned that I have and will try to use those to survive the first few months with another newborn. I will be posting more posts about how my pregnancy this time around is going and all the fun stuff. For now, I wanted to officially “announce” in my blog that we are expecting a sweet baby girl in Feb. I am 20 weeks preggers right now so half way there already.

Stay tuned to discover more about how I plan on doing the nursery/ rooms for the girls, what kind of “cool gears” I will get this time around for the second baby and my fun hospital bag info in case you want to know whats in it!

As always, thank you for reading and following my blog, I truly appreciate all the love and support I get from you all!
