Shriya fell off from her bed :-O
I was working from home yday, fed my little one and put her on the bed with pillows around her and went ahead to do my work. The house was quiet, mom in the kitchen, me working in the living room. All of a sudden, we heard a Thud! and a cry. We rushed in to find the LO on the floor crying. My heart skipped a beat! I was freakin’ out and scared to death! Lifted the hurt one, patted her and comforted her. She stopped crying after some time. I laughed with her, talked to her, played with her, to make sure she is fine. And she was,

With a sigh of relief, fed her some cereal and played with her. But was lil scared at the back of my mind and so called n booked an apptmt with her Ped. Her doctor checked her and said she is FINE ! Whewwww, whatta releif! Really, a big relief. Though, he has asked us to watch out for any cross-eyes or vomitting.

Thank God, Shriya is safe. Never again I will leave her on her bed 😦 Oh Poor thing… Mommy says sorry, hon.


For the past few weeks, she hasn’t been sleeping well, and she wakes up every hour in the night. That’s right, EVERY HOUR and it sometimes does annoys us. Being full-time working parents, we find it little difficult when we lose our sleep. Thank god, my mom is still here to assist us, can’t imagine our state when she leaves 😦 Will deftly miss u, ma

We’ve been thinking over so many possiblities for her fussiness. And tried many remedies to overcome it too. All in Vain 😦

1. We thought she might be having stomach issues, so gave our traditional gas relief called, Gripe water, still she doesn’t sleep through the nite.

Gripe water

2. Maybe, she’s gassy??? Tried Mylicon too 😦


3. She may be constipating, mebbe she’s got stomach discomfort. Tried Raisin water too 😦 but in vain


4. Maybe she’s too cold??? Tried to put on a warm sweater, socks on her. No, she just would’nt sleep.

5. Maybe she’s feeling warm? Tried to remove her layers too, no. She wouldn’t sleep again


So, I finally nailed it down to an option that she may be Teething. And I’ve read some online forums that some babies do get cranky while they are teething. Watever it is, GOD please help us here 😦 and make her sleep well 😦

Sometimes its more frustating, but just could not express it to the lil one. Poor thing,,, baby, please sleep well, hon.



Our li’l one is 7 months now and is stepping into her 8th month. Whoaaa, time REALLY flies. Can’t beleive that she is already 7 months and is going to be 1 year old soon. Uffff, how fast they grow.

Happy birthday, dear-o


Yes,  this year is (was) Shriya’s 1st Halloween. Though I was browsing for costume for her, later we realised that, she is too young to enjoy it this year. It will be fun for us, to see her dressed up, but not for her. So, we decided to save the halloween-costume-tradition for next year.

But, She was still having fun 😛 this Halloween by wearing the onesie, that says, My first Halloween 🙂

How cute she looks!!! Adorable darlin’


First Halloween

Whoa…It’s a delight to watch my lil one CRUISE 🙂 Yea, it’s a treat for our eyes, to watch the cutie-pie move on her own. Initially she was struggling, but now, the minute u put her down, she’s on her wayyyyyyy. She moves on her tummy, by having her right arm bend towards her chest and move by keeping the right arm support in her forward position 🙂 . Earlier she used to move on her tummy, but it was backwards :-O , yes 😀 , she moved backwards when we were constantly encouraging her to move forward. Hehehehe, poor lil thing. But now, she’s on her own !!!

And one thing that I noticed last evening, was, she is trying to balance on her 4’s. Her knee has gotten little rough coz of that…but all’s for good 🙂

Way to go, Shriya 🙂

Love u
