Bun in the oven

Like any Mangalorean would say, "Amchi laanshi Good News asa ba:)" (we have a little good news)!

BREAKING NEWS: Tauro bébe - edition 2.0 expected in August 2011.

Way back in December, when I saw the two bright red lines on the home pregnancy test kit, I must admit, I wasn't exactly thrilled (the ground beneath my feet shook... I swear!), but now 2 months later, the idea of a new little Tauro does bring a smile to my face :)

Thankfully, unlike the first time, I've been feeling very normal this time around - a little too normal I would say, at times making me wonder if the bun was actually in the oven! But then the ultrasound images and my doc have rubbished all such fears. I pray that things stay that way and the pregnancy is a breeze (wishful thinking eh?).

In love with her beloved 'Baba'
Every morning, as instructed, Chi gives good morning kisses to my stomach and chirps "Hi Baby". She is otherwise clueless about bébé 2. I can only hope my little girl doesn't have too many issues sharing her mama.

In preparation, two days ago we moved Chi along with her cot to her own room. I tried sprucing up her room a wee bit (to make it a little more welcoming but nothing wow worthy) and I must say Chi has settled in pretty well. It is the parents who are having trouble letting go! Our bedroom feels simply too large and empty... I can only imagine how I'm gonna feel the day she leaves home :( (makes me want to cry already!)

Wearing Dada's Tie
I don't know if it's just me, but I feel so bad that Chi will no longer be my only baby. I can't imagine loving another child as much as I love her. I feel she will be forced to grow up and be a big sister at just 2 and a half years of age. I know, I'm being silly but I can't deny that these thoughts do take up room in my idiotic head!

But I guess like making space in our bedroom, I've got to make space in my heart and in my silly head too!

  1. Nice post Sheryl...this was exactly what I felt for Jaanu, when I was pregnant with Shona. Trust me Chi will be the happiest person when ur second one arrives and all ur fears will be put to rest when you see them bond. I used to tell myself always that Jaanu is my first baby and my fav baby. Just to reassure myself :)

  4. Congratulations Sheryl. I suspect you are expecting a little Master Tauro. You will have your hands full. Little Chi entering the terrible two's (hopefully she can put it off till the terrible three's) and a little one on the way. Good luck with everything.
