And she turned 1......


Yes, Anjana madam crossed a major milestone yesterday!My dear Gulu is one year old! Till the day before, she seemed like a small baby....ofcourse she still is, but all of a sudden, she seems big!All because she is ONE year old now.

At 1, Gulu holds on to support and roams around, runs around on all fours, has a fine temper aka Daddy, screams and screeches as though somebody hit her, when shes not happy, is already a big fan of her sis and also wants everything that she has lol.The admiration is mutual, for her "Akka" loves her to bits (well, most of the time,lol).On her birthday, she decided to be generous and smile at everyone, usually she howls even at the mere sight of another person. She stills thinks I am her all time favourite person and saves her best smiles for me:). I am sure shes going to change her mind soon, for I am the one who shouts!lol

We celebrated by throwing a grand dinner party for all those who "matter" to us:). Both sisters looked really fetching in identical pink frocks with a butterfly to match the cake:)

When I was expecting, I always wondered if it was possible to love another child just as much. I wondered if my love would be "divided". Obviously my fears seem really ridiculous now....if at all , the arrival of another child has only made me love the first one all the more! Gulu has made me feel more like a mother than I did till she came along....somehow, contrary to what most people think (me too), I discovered that I have more patience now than before!I also have begun to be more of a mother to D;this also could be because I am at home now.

My cup is overflowing....I only feel slightly wistful I wish all these aunts,uncles and Daddy dearest were there for D's first bday..... anyway, better now than never!

Heres to many many more, darling! Happy Birthday Gulu!
