I am Humpty !

When Aryan was about a month old , papa-mummy bought him this roly-poly in Bulandshahr.

At Home, Bangalore, 28th April 2007

A lot of thought put in , Aryan loved hitting at objects,it had a soft sound and red was his favourite colour.He proved them right.He loved the toy like anything and still(at 10 months) loves it.I remember the times when he would hug the toy and sleep without Mumma.

Bulandshahr Home,27th September 2006

I named the toy as 'Humpty' and invented a nursery rhyme.

"Hello Aryan , How are you,
I am Humpty, How do you do ?,
I wanna play with you,
I wanna play with you,
Hit me , Hit me , play with me ,
Kiss me, Kiss me , play with me."

To my own surprise, Aryan loved this poem and would stop crying when ever I sing the same to him , with Humpty ringing in my hand.God knows , if he liked the rhyme , or his name in a rhyme or he imagined humpty singing it to him, but it worked ...ALWAYS !!! Anupam however, always teased me that I torture the baby with my stupid poetry.

Another incident related to the toy, While travelling for Bhuwan-Manasi(Jan 6th, 2007) wedding ,I kept it in my hand bag to pacify Aryan on the way and during the wedding chores , without realizing what troubles it can cause during security check.
Oops..they thought its a small bomb/hand grenade I guess.Apart from the trouble and time to convince them , most of my worry was , what if they will keep my son's favourite toy ? Thank God , he realized it was just a toy for the 6 month's old baby.

Now Humpty has lost both his eyes and has a crack in his body (probably the first toy Aryan broke on his own !!!). I do not know how long will it survive.So I thought of preserving our memories with Humpty for Aryan to cherish.

A Desperate Mommy

Our Grannys and mommys stiched and knitted for their little ones during pregnany, to express their love , excitement and desperation.We being working , did not have that amount of time , but had the same feelings.

Here is the little I did..

Nanmun and His Webpage

As Aryan budded inside , we thought of how would we address him/her.'Baby','Little One', Chiku','Meethu' and what not came to our minds.Finally we settled on 'Nanmun'.
Sweet and Simple and not to forget Unisex name,Literally means Little Baby.(Though Anupam said , it sounds more like a boy name and our girl (if) will fight with us for this.)

Nanmun's Taiji and I decided that we would develop a webpage for Nanmun, where in I would write all my day to day experiences.And she designed the same for us.It was so much fun and excitement, designing the layout , then the content and the ticker.

Here is what it looked like initially..

I did not really lived up to it.I did not keep that updated too often as planned. But something is better than nothing :-)

Here is what it looks now ..

THANKS to everyone , who came in to wish me luck and shower their love to my little one in his guestbook.

Please keep dropping a line for him and I will make sure , he will read that all.

Why This Blog ?

Our Little Bundle of Joy Came to this World on July , 21st 2006. It seems like yesterday when I got married and now I have a baby who is 10 months old.

Somethings that are troubling me from past few days is , how to preserve his pictutes , videos and activities , so that he can enjoy them as he grows up. Yeah ..we have a digi cam and we can burn CDs and keep. But a thousand pictures in one CD and GOD knows how many CDs..who will have the time to see them all, 10 years down the line.We can once in a blue moon , sit back and see a few CDs..but how about a few special pics and videos at one place and you can see him growing at a glance.

At first I thought of a physical scrap book , taking prints and pasting them , but then I realized that it would need more of time and effort and I am likely to drop that off once I loose the initial enthusiasm.So here I online scrapbook.Well , dont expect any designing stuff here..just a log of photos , videos,events , memories and activities.

By the way ..Aryan already has a website of his own which talks about my experiences during pregnancy and after , so you can check out that space too. I will try to keep both the places up to date.

Let me see if I live up to it ;-)
