Oh my Bump! is my weekly chronicling of this little pie baking away, and a sharing of the ebbs and flows of being two at a time. Its a wonderful journey of rising and falling hormones, the beating of two hearts, and a huge sea of change to the body. It’s love and life all the way.
26 weeks! The best week ever, thus far. With Baby B kicking away at cues, at certain people, at certain events am starting to wonder if my behaviour in the last 6 months has been dictated by the Baby! Choices of food, colours, clothing, words and action are seeming so out of my characteristic and with the little soul bubbling inside of me, it definitely seems like it’s working its way in the world through me. While we assume as parents we shape our kids, I am now quite certain that they come in with personalities of their own and all we could hope for is enjoying their company. Good Lord! Baby Brewing 😀 And while the pixie is inside of me, all it does and wants affects me much more than the other way round. This week was the best ever with Diwali celebrations with la familie, a luxurious trip to Hyderabad’s most gorgeous palace and lots of pool time. Croquet is a new game we picked up this week and my, what fun it was. After a couple of sessions am told it was the prelude to golf. The sound of the croquet stick striking the ball is rather fun and addictive. Absolutely loved it. Vintage is so cool in every sense of the word. A lot of memories and reminiscing happened this week too. And whimsical seems to be the order of my design world. Pulled out my piano this week and hope to get back to serious playing, especially my favourite tune, Air from little Russia, this week. Happened to be introduced and listening up to the Terem Quartet, a musical ensemble from Saint Petersburg. What fun.
