The new year has been ushered in. Year 2014 is the thing of the past. But, I am still reeling in the joys that 2014 has been. It was the year where several of our dreams came true – a new house to call our own, the baby news, my mom visiting from India !
The best of the reasons why 2014 will always be dear to me, however, is the gift that arrived at the very end of the year.
‘Donut’ made his entry on the day of Christmas eve – Dec 24…when the world was in the best of spirits, celebrations and happiness all around 🙂
We are a family of four now!
It has been about 3 weeks now and things still feel surreal.In the haze of constant feeding, diaper changes, sleepless nights, and recovery, we are gloating over every sleepy smile of the newborn.
The story of the birth needs to be recorded and I shall put it up shortly. Glad to say, it was as less eventful as can be.
The big sister was initially taken aback by the baby out of Amma’s tummy! But, once warmed up, she has been unable to stay away from her tiny pink blob of a brother. Constantly hugging and showering him with kisses, she shows him off to anyone who cares to look.
I realize she misses her parents complete attention at times, but tries her best to accommodate and keep a smiling face. Makes me proud to watch her act with such understanding and maturity at this tender age.
Sounds so cliched, but just when you thought your heart was full with this all consuming love, it makes space for more! It brims over and rolls down as tears when you hold the 4 year old with the 4 day old close to the chest while the husband stands close and watches on.
Hoping 2015 carries forward these wonderful moments.
To all of you lovely people out there – May the new year bring you the joys of adventure, high of success and warmth of love ..all through and through.
