Meet My Sister.

Hello World!

I am happy to introduce ANTU, my brand new baby sister, to all of you. She arrived on 27th June 2008 at 11 am weighing 2.950 Kg and measuring 49 Cm tall. How cute is that she was born on 27th too just like me! Or is she already competing? I ll give her some benefit of doubt for now since she did nt give Amma too much trouble while coming out and shes so tiny. I managed just fine for 4 days without Amma at home though it made me realize no one can replace Amma. (I SO did nt feel that way, but you know who is writing this post, don't you? I cant even read yet let alone write blog posts!) Amma was in such a dizzy state and in so much pain while recovering that she did nt have the time to miss me. Grandma and I welcomed Amma and Antu home yesterday and now Antu can see me in my element although all she does is drink milk and sleep. Which is supposed to be good, I am told.

Amma will give you more details later as soon as she can sit it one place long enough without hurting her behind. For now, leaving you with a photo of us two sisters. Yes, yes, you are allowed to take your eyes off me and see Antu and rave how cute she is. I wont mind. We saw my baby pictures yesterday and I can see I was cuter. Now Antu cant compete with my deadly dimples, can she? ;)

And thank you so much for all your wonderful wishes through emails and comments. It put a special smile on Ammas face and so a special thanks from me for the same. And oh, what about Appa, you ask? He survived the labor, cut the cord and is recovering fine too. Do you think he had any other role in this baby making business? Beats me!

Luv,
Ashu.

Give both the sisters a big huggy from me - they look so adorable. And as for u - try using a pillow/cushion for the bottom wherever u sit. That really helps. Not that u dont know it - just something that crossed my mind as i read this post.

Very fabulous pictures!!! Ashu & Antu look cute together. Look at the proud big sister!! I feel Antu looks like you Boo. Now I feel Ashu looks more like your HD except for the cute dimple part :)

Take care of yourself. Get a Boppy Pillow or donut cusion (as previous poster suggested). They are extremely good.
Go to www.boppy.com to take a look.

Convey our congrats to Ashu's Patti-Thatha too!! I am sure your Dad must be missing this moment...ask him to fly again.
