And then I was 4 months old

Dear readers,

Today my darling baby turned 4 months old. In fact I started writing this blog exactly at his time of birth but by the time I would post it, it would be late evening. I plan to have his photo shoot once I go home from work and want to add that to this blog so that will cause a little bit of delay. Anyway, now that this is out of the way, let me start telling you all about how his week went and how proud I am to be his mom. Also, on the occasion of his birth day of sorts, I want to announce that we are doing a little something special and would have guest bloggers writing here over the next couple of weeks.

So Laksh is 4 months old and these 4 months have been the best and the scariest 4 months of my life. The intense love that I feel for my baby coupled with this protective instinct that I have for him is empowering and weakening at the same time. I remember reading, "Making the decision to have a child -- it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -- Elizabeth Stone and wondering how can that be true. But I have been feeling like that for the last 4 months and it has been exhilarating.

Laksh has been successfully rolling from side to side, but is still to complete a roll. I am not worried as I know he is doing the best that he can and is doing amazingly well. Based now this I came up with an idea, I am going to start something that I would like to call "Milestone Monday" for him. One Monday in a month, I would update about what new milestones Laksh has achieved and would love to know where other parents are. 

For now, let me show you guys some highlights of his week:

Waiting for Mommy and Daddy to get home

When mommy says I'm cool, I am cool..

The day I decided to dress up as a teddy bear 

During PT session, redefining "killer smile"

Chilling in daddy's arms

Charming my aunts with flair..

And then I was 4 months old

Hope the last month of this year fills your lives with love and happiness. Happy December!
