Dear R2

You are here. And you proved that you share your sister’s penchant for jewelry when you managed to wound the umbilical cord around your neck, not once, but twice!!!!

The doc had to operate Amma midst a labour where she had already dilated 10 cms but you wouldn’t come down. Twenty mins of mayhem but the doc finally put her foot down when your heartbeat started to fall down drastically. And you had to be removed surgically. You managed to panic your Appa and your Amma was like okay whatever.

When your Barodu thathi went back home from the hospital to pick up your akka, you decided to come out. And when Appa called up home to inform thathi, R akka had just come in and picked up the phone.Her first reaction to the news was

” Yayayayayayayayayyaya I got a baby sister yayayyayayayayayayayyayayay”.

She has been the epitome of the proudest and most helpful older sister. Of course, I dont know how long the excitment will last, but till date she talks to you, waits for you to open your eyes, sings for you, gets me diapers when you do potty, even throws away the water n cotton after cleaning your bum. In short she is everything I was sure she wont be. Of course, there are spurts of I want my amma and baby stop crying when amma is reading to me but all in all she seems to have accepted you with full heart. She got all her building friends home to ‘SHOW’ you off :). She has a million queries from why the cut below my tummy to how all I eat gets transformed to milk to how your potty is not like hers πŸ™‚

Appa is over the moon. All through the pregnancy he maintained a stoic silence when folks asked him if he wanted a girl or a boy. HeΒ andΒ I both would mention we wanted a healthy baby. I dont know what his reaction was when the doc went out to tell him that he got a baby girl, but he has resigned himself to the fact that its going to be a 3:1 ratio in this household πŸ™‚ He has moved around like a man possessed, between hospital and home when ma was with you there. Getting food from home, meds for both of us, juggling between ferrying R akka n thati. In short he was there with a 100 hands and 1000 legs doing everything and anything.

And your Barodu thathi…what can I say? I am just plain blessed to have a mother like her and you are blessed to have a nani like her. Whether it was going back to pick up Akka from the bus while her daughter was in OT or cook food for the family or spend sleepless nights in the hospital or just pick you up and sing you to sleep – she did it all and without a single sigh. With loads of love and honestly a LOT of will power too! She has been the pillar of strength for all of us. Taking care of akka, getting her to school, making her tiffin, doing everything for Amma n you….you are lucky,darling, to have a thathi so wonderful. And whatever you n Akka do,you can never ever repay her for all this!

Your name has been decided by Appa since I got the opportunity to name Akka πŸ™‚

And all your blog aunties and uncles. Sigh! what do I say darling? You have had so many good wishes pouring in. Folks in a particular blog group I am in gave us the surprise of our lives by sending across a beautiful crib even before I got back home from the hospital. And half the folks in the group I havent even met!!!You are a lucky gal surely!

Whether it is sending across the traditional medicines all the way from Kerala by courier or sending me some maternity stuff, my blog friends have done it all :)Thank you so much folks!

I wish you all the love luck andΒ happiness in life darling…I still cant believe am responsible for another human being. The thought scares me a little but hopefully, Appa and I wont goof it up too much.

Loads of love


PS – Sorry for the silence on the blog and thanks for all the emails and messages. I am lucky to have a group of virtual friends who are so amazing πŸ™‚

PS 1 – Am going to be silent here for a while as I go through the entire routine of sleepless nights, feeding, potty cleaning. You all be good and I will be back with more updates πŸ™‚

    Very very huge welcome into our crazy, crazy but loving world R2. And do you know why you are the luckiest little person in the world? Let it be remembered that I was the first to let you in on this secret! Because you have the most wonderful, humorous, fun loving(she will be strict when she has to though sweetie..), wise, fundoo Momma.

    And R’s mom, how on earth did you manage to not once(to my recall) mention that you were preggers on this blog. Hmph! I’m a bit perplexed because maybe I missed the announcement. But even more perplexed that you had THIS much energy to write all thru with a peppy, cheerful attitude not to mention make chundo and what not in the scorching summer heat!!! I was a wilting lily(so not lily-ish really) all thru my 9 months.

    Ok, now I’m eagerly waiting for R and R2 updates. What fun for all of us.

    Take care, rest, enjoy R2 thoroughly.
