The morning sickness, “Eating for Two”, ‘The bumpy Photo shoot’, ‘The baby shower’ (Seemantham / Aashirwad ceremony),‘The Koopadhi Kool’ ( A tradition followed by Kodavas where the expecting mother gets to relish some of her favourite delicacies cooked by her favourite people ! Thanks to all my kodava friends who made this happen to me.), ‘The antenatal classes’ , and finally ‘the labour pain’ ! The Climax is all OVER.
And now you are holding the most awaited and beautiful baby in the world ! Its the new beginning again …. a brand new story !The very first word that i uttered to my new born was “Happy Birthday darling !” . Woof ! it felt sooooooooo good to see him after having to wait for 5 days past 9 months !
Oh now i see a dozen – people waiting not only to see my little one , but also to give me a list of DO’s and DONT’S ! Dont get annoyed , they do that because they care for you , you see!
The initial 48 days are very crucial.It is called The Confinement period.My mom always said ‘If you don’t listen to me now, you will suffer for a life time !’.Thanks to me ,i was a obedient daughter. I did everything that she asked me to do and did not give her a chance to blast me. Things were fine till four months.But then i realised chinnu was ready for his first food!Milk is Good,but he also wanted something more …n more .. n more! Thats when i bugged all the mommies on planet earth. I never really had a habit of jotting down stuff. All i did was call-ask-make and then forget ! And then call again and get blasted for ‘The repeat Telecast ‘!Oh comm’on, Excuse Me buddies ….am a working women after-all , with no FREE time for writing..!
So now i am finally blogging to safe these precious recipes ! This blog is dedicated to everybody who want to make new delicacies for their infants,toddlers,children and grand children! Happy cooking !
