Tunmun takes after her dad. She is a sleepyhead. Anytime, anywhere – bam! They can sleep. When she is not sleeping, she is feeding. Its amazing that genes show up at such an young age 😉
Jokes apart, fatherhood for Vibhu is incredibly easy this time around. I had an easy pregnancy. The delivery was normal too and Vibhu was not a bundle of nerves like last time. In fact he was totally chilled. We already had all the baby supplies from Venky’s time. So, no running around either. And oh! she’s letting us sleep!! Venky was such a horrible sleeper that Vibhu wanted to stick to having a single child. Oh, God! I realize that I am alredy comparing my two kids!!!
Motherhood is a lot easier too. I guess right expectations and experience helps. And like I said, she’s letting us sleep (BIG KALA TIKA). Post natal recovery has been great. Vibhu was so impressed with my high spirits that he gave me a surprise gift. A diamond ring!! 🙂
Venky is being extremely cooperative. It’s great to see his natural affection for his sibling. He comes in an coos “Hi chotu baby”, “Hi choti behna” once in a while in the midst of his play and gently strokes her hair and/or kisses her feet (we’ve told him that small babies can be kissed only on the feet).
The other day, some of our friends came over to see the baby. Their son who is Venky’s age, touched Tunmun’s cheeks. Venky was quick to tell him – “Don’t disturb her, she is sleeping”. Big bro keeping bad guys away from little sister!! She’ll have a hard time as a teenager 🙂
