My my!!! Where did the time fly??

2 weeks of uncertainty

2.5 months of hiding it Β from family

1 week of “Really? Again?!!” ‘s , “No, you didn’t” ‘s , “Do you know what it is?” ‘s to “I hope it is a boy finally” ‘s to “I guess you want a boy that bad” ‘s from family and friends.. actually this continued through out the 9 months! and is still going on among those who got to know recently that I have a three girls πŸ™‚

3 months of trying to fit Na and R into an Indian life, attending Indian schools, going through lot of emotional trauma trying to manage everything on my own without H’s help.

2 weeks of confusion, thanks to Indian Government policies on visitor visas – Delivery in India or Delivery in US

2 days of decision making, going back to US! Although sad that I will be leaving my parents and family, I was also glad that I am going to be back with H on whom I can lean on the most, at all times πŸ™‚

4 more months of apprehension, more tests, more apprehension, many many more questions!

D-Day- Baby ‘Ad’ arrived Β πŸ™‚

3 more months of apprehension, since she supposedly had some issues with her heart. The doctors examined her at 3 months and found nothing! After she turned 3 months old, we have truly enjoyed our Β girls and thanked God everyday for blessing us with three cuties!

Today Ad turned 6 months old. Β  Considering she has occupied very little blogspace on Naradtales, what better occasion to make an Ad-specific post! Β Happy Birthday kanna, thank you for coming into my life! Truly, Β I did not know I would enjoy you this much 15 months ago πŸ™‚

Ciao for now,

    v nicely put….Yes Ad rocks- the girl is bidding her time, learning everything by just observing and once she gets her time will shine! she is a fighter right through… and you know afterall these years even now my mom gets asked’ only two girls’- can you believe that . so when such a question is asked just say ‘ I know isnt that fun?
    its delicious to have a houseful of girls. Coming from an all girls family myself i can say the bond between sisters and between mom and girl is always always close no matter what, inspite of all the cat fights. Plus dads and girls will have a very special bond:).

    Although I wouldnt now trade my famil mix – during V pregnancy I really wanted a girl and got one second time around! and then I was wishing for a sister for A, so was hoping my sister would have a girl πŸ˜‰ Anyways A will play with Narad – she anyways thinks Na as her best friendd!

      Thanks VV! Yes, she is a fighter. Narad are A’s sisters, am sure all the girls will bond really well πŸ™‚
