A New Blessing

I am happy to announce here that we were blessed with our second baby boy – “Ayaan” couple of days ago. Life has changed again with us trying to adjust to an almost 4 year old and a newborn at home. We have been very lucky to have my parents here to help us out, I cannot imagine how we would have managed if they were not here. It would challenging once they return to India next month.

This post won’t be complete if I don’t mention our friends here in Kansas. Throughout pregnancy and after childbirth, our friends here gave every bit of support we needed. They took care of Ishaan when I was tired and needed a break, brought us food when I was down, brought their kids to our place so Ishaan would be entertained, picked him from school, threw awesome baby showers for me, helped with everything for Ishaan’s Β (over-ambitious) birthday party (when I was just a couple of weeks away from due date). They did everything and we did not even had to ask. We truly feel blessed to have amazing friends in our lives.

So what is going to happen to this blog? I have already realized that life with two little ones is going to be very very busy. But I will make sure to update this place when I get some breathing time. Meanwhile enjoy the 1000+ recipes that are already on the blog.

Please send your blessings to our little Ayaan.
