My baby arrived on 27th of December, 2011 and put an end to a long wait. Everyone was waiting with eagerness for the baby to arrive. The day was special for sure. A rose had blossomed that morning as if indicating the arrival of our baby later in the day. My wife says that it is a rose indicator. The rose plant itself was special. This rose plant was almost dead. Considering it dead we had initially tried to uproot it. However, the strong roots it had developed made us to think otherwise. That decision did not go in vain as the first flower it borne happened to be an indication of a very special day for me and everyone in my family. That night the moon too had a special smiling face and there was a star shining brightly near the moon. She truly is an angel.
How the day unfolded?
The baby weighing 2.75 kg was healthy and in good shape. With lot of hair on her head right from day one, my mom made reference to my birth. She said that I was also having lot of hair right from day one. Then everyone who visited was trying to figure out as to who the baby resembles with. Some would say that she looks like my wife. While few others would say that she looks like me. It was amusing. On the very first day, I was a bit nervous to hold her. She seemed so delicate and I felt I might hurt her. However, on second day, my nervousness gave way to my inner desire to hold her in my hands. It was a special feeling. Being instrumental in bringing someone to life is the closest I think one can get to Godliness. We have found a name for our bundle of joy. However, I will be announcing it only after the naming ceremony. You guys must be wondering why it took so long to write this blog. Being a first time dad does take focus away from other priorities of your life, isn't it?
