Anush- On pregnancy/ the baby

Yesterday we had unexpected showers in the evening. Lovely !! Anush wore her umbrella hat and danced around in the rain in the sit-out. I was enjoying our jhoola. Anush came up to my stomach and said "Come soon baby. I am waiting, I love you."

Last couple of months, she keeps asking when the baby will come out. It seems like an incredibly long wait to her.

She kisses my stomach when she feels like it or when she thinks she has pressed it inadvertently. She has been very understanding about not being rough in her attention/love to me but Navy gets a double load as a result.

Any time I am unwell ( nausea and acidity in the first trimester and just lethargy now) she attributes it to the baby. She pats my hair and sings me lullabies as well.

A few days ago she said that my stomach looked like a ball and wanted to know when her stomach would also become that way!! So this is a desirable way to look atleast as per her :-D

She has chosen a name from my shortlist, but also likes the name Sangita for some reason

She wants to buy diapers and stock up each time we go to the dept store.

Anush is saving her clothes and shoes that don't fit and books and toys that don't excite her anymore for the baby- and generously also her cycle since she wants a bigger one for her birthday- chaalu cheez.

How sweet!!..its nice she is not jealous of the new arrival...when my sis was born,i was initially excited but then felt bad that all the attention was being given to her...now,after so many years,i feel stupid for my behaviour..

Anush will make a wonderful big sister.. I noticed her gentle ways with babies when she was so caring towards punch baby :-)

Artnavy said...

Thanks all.

i really hope anush continues to feel secure and loves her sibling and it is reciprocated- they can even gang up against me that would be fun

i know it is blasphemy - but i have doubts myself if i can love both kids equally... i hope i turn out a fair parent...being an only child- i find it difficult to even visualise

Monika,Ansh said...

Awww......so cute. Anush will be a great big sister & u'll be a great mom to both your babies.

Have been following your blog for many years now and delurking now.

Pooh! said...

That is so sweet Anush! And I cannot believe that you are close to choosing a name...I am no where close to narrowing down a short-list and September seems right there

starry-eyed said...

Same pinch!!!!!!!Yippeee...finally found an only child in my generation...we were a rare species three decades ago!

Had the same apprehensions...and I will blasphemise...I do not love them equally...just differently:) But my love multiplied several fold with two!

and you can be fairly different...err..differently fair...coz your new lil' one will challenge you where Anush is angelic and vice versa ;)

Artnavy said...

Awww Anush is going to be a great older sister. Bugs was 4 when we had Bubbles and I was preparing myself by reading loads of books on sibling rivalry, but there was no rivalry at all touchwood. He was so generous and exactly like Anush, he would run around in the store to find pretty clothes for the unborn baby and he somehow knew that its going to be a little sister !

From what you have written, I think Anush is going to be a superb didi :-) and you are going to be an amazing mum of 2 !

Take care

starry-eyed said...

Hema said...

That's so cute... she is going to be a fantastic big sister :-)

Take care!

sole said...

Aww..she seems adorable..Will have to wait and watch to see if it continues...You will be one lucky mother if jealously doesn't set in at some point. I truly hope and pray it doesn't and that she continues to be as lovely as she is!! So nice when your child is mature about it and understands..u are one lucky mum :-)

choxbox said...

i like the answer above!

you cannot love them equally, you love them differently :)

Anush is so sweet. But if shes anything like Ashu, be warned! Ashu drove me crazy the entire pregnancy asking "is the baby coming out today, amma?" every damn day! :)
