Long time coming

Dear readers,

It’s been a while since I was motivated enough to write. Life has been great. Laksh has been great.  But somehow, in all the craziness that’s life I just lost the will to write. My husband kept me going through it all by reminding me why I started this blog in the first place; to share with the world what a blessing our precious son is. And it’s for him that I write this blog and its for him that I shall strive to continue.

Laksh is one. Yes it’s been a year since God blessed us with our first born. This one year taught us so much. When Laksh turned one, I shared this post on our Instagram and Facebook page where I wrote a few lines encompassing my feelings.

This one year, I have learned so much. 
This one year, I have grown so much.
This one year. I have embraced so much.
This one year, I have loved so much.
This one year, I have felt humility.
This one year, I have felt grateful.
This one year, I have felt divinity.
This one year, I have felt complete.

Happy first birthday my precious Laksh. Thank you for making me a Mumma.

We had a pre-birthday celebration at our apartment a couple days before Laksh turned one and were lucky to have lots of loved ones come with their family. It was our first time hosting a party and I am proud to say it went well with only one adult tantrum (me) and zero baby tantrums.


On the day of his birthday, we had a cake smash photo session for him and it couldn't have gone any better. I will let the photos do the talking.


Things Laksh has always loved and has grown to love:

1) Daddy

2) Mommy

3) His big sisters (he loves them both but has only met one so far)


4) His aunts (all 0f his family actually)



5) The beach



6)The pool


7) The swings

8) Seeing new places and meeting people






9) Making a mess of his play area


10) Standing:



Things Laksh hates:

1) Napping

2) Napping

3) Napping

Thank you taking the time to read about how Laksh's first year has been. I am going to try to be more regular with blogging. Do write in your comments what you guys would like to know and I will try to blog about that next time. Always be kind folks. It is a great time to be alive.
