One more..

..round of state elections and one more show of poor turnout. Not been able to follow it much but I hear the show was as poor as ever. Will we ever wake up and do something to better our plight! Sigh..

Need to get one more passport done. For the son this time. I am thinking it will be a handy thing to have. Apparently you just cannot add infants' names in parents passports and be done like before. You actually need a new one for them. Well, ok. One more round to the dratted office. Hopefully since I have my passport with address proof and all and we will soon be getting a birth certificate for him, things shouldn't be too bad.

Lunch gang came home today to see the son. I was happy they could make it. Some peoples still missing, but hopefully everyone will complete one visit soon :)

The philosopher

One of the first philosophies I embraced after becoming a mom - In life nothing comes easy, even for newborns.

What else explains the fact that even wen they are barely hours old, they have to learn to latch and suckle and spend energy in doing so. All for those few drops of mother's milk which will protect them and feed them for the next few months.

Sigh! Even newborns apparently have to work hard for food..

Thanks everyone for the wishes, I had so many inquiries on the name. We will mostly go with "Rohan Aditya". Rohan means ascending. Aditya because he was born on a Sunday. Together it means "ascendng/rising sun" which is around when he was delivered to us :) In the wake of the morning..

The baby..

Most of you know, some of you have guessed and yet some more might be wondering where I am. Well, I've gone off and had my baby, and its been about 10 days now. Lots of special things about when he was born. Subhash's birth date (27th), my birth star, 9th day of the Navratri, in the 9th month of the 9th year of the century ;) Too many 9s eh?

Its been an overwhelming experience and I feel I've grown some decades old suddenly. Well, lets see what else parenthood brings in its wake :)
