While I Was Away

Project: Anirudh & Neelanjana

A few days back, I took an oath that I would finish off
Project: Anirudh & Neelanjana, aka, completing their respective baby books.
FYI I started officially in 2005, when I bought A’s baby book while I was
carrying him. But years kept passing away, N also arrived in 2010 (I precisely
bought her baby book too in 2009), but somehow I could not get myself to
complete both the baby books.
But one thing remained. I kept writing small notes for both
of them, kept collecting knick knacks for the special moments, took (and still
take) a lot of pictures.
And it finally dawned upon me last week that this has been
pending for  pretty long time and I
should now finish making the baby book now. Well, my kids are not even babies
any more, especially A, who is now 7. J
After spending about an hour daily or some days even more
for the past ten days, voila….It is finally done! And I just couldn’t stop
clicking some pics of the baby books and put it up on my blog. 
So, here it is:
(A’s baby book, bought from Crossword, Pune in 2005)

(I wrote this poem for A, just after he was born in 2006)

(A’s baby wrist tag just after my delivery)

(Newspaper clippings of the day he was born: 22nd January 2006)

(The temporary birth certificate received from the hospital)

(A holding Pappa’s finger….aaaaaaw)

(And A turned on his tummy for the 1st time!)

(A very rare funny-moment pic of A…people who know him know how rare it it :))
(A’s 1st birthday invitation card)

(Another first – his lower tooth fell off, BTW I have attached the tooth too in the book :))

(From the first day in playgroup to first day in Primary school)

(A’s 1st note to Pappa and me :))

(N’s baby book bought from Crossword, Bangalore in 2009)

(A little note about the day N was born: 24th August 2010)

(Out of the hospital pic, N is just 2 days old in this pic :))

(Newspaper clippings of the day N was born)

(At home, being adored and pampered by big bro)

(Head shave ceremony at 1 year)

(A note on our family)

(N’s 1st birthday invitation card)

(N’s hand-print taken in pre-school)

(N’s 1st GOOD GIRL certificate from pre-school: December 2012)

(N’s big words from her small mouth :))

(Why I am blessed to have a daughter)

(Foot prints forever, thanks to the Almighty: A, N, Me and Manoj)
Ofcourse, there are lot more pics and a lot more writings in both the books, but I selected the ones which are most special or could be photographed. 
And this has been what has kept me busy as buzzzzzzz bee. I am so sleepy today, quite typical of me. When I finish a long awaited activity, I sleep like I am in hibernation 🙂
