An Amazing Trip

We got home a week ago from a 23 day trip of a lifetime. We visited The Netherlands (several cities there), Koln, Germany and PARIS, France in Europe!! Then we visited my husband's family in India. I will probably share a lot about it over time! I know I googled for tips before our trip and I'd like to help anyone looking for tips now! Traveling with a baby can make things crazy but our kids did great!!
Magical times

I love fall!

The Moon

A lot goes on in life without being blogged about. But I captured this full moon picture a few weeks ago and I love it! Had to share.

5 months!

My baby is already 5 months old! I feel like I just talked about him being born on here.

D.C. - Baby's first trip

When Rajan was almost 2 months old, we booked tickets to take a trip to Washington, D.C. in June. It went very well! Babies don't have to stop you from traveling. He did great on the flights. A good test for when we visit my husband's family in India this Fall or winter.

We stayed four nights. We went to the zoo, museums, Capitol Building, White House, Chinatown, Lincoln Memorial, and passed many other important buildings. We had so much fun! We flew and stayed in a hotel near the White House. No car needed. We used the metro.

12 weeks old!!

It's been six weeks since I blogged. Wow. Now little Rajan is 12 weeks old today! It's so cliche to say but time really does fly.

Yesterday we spent time exploring two places we had never been. Turkey Creek Nature Preserve and Horse Pens 40. Both had some beautiful nature going on.

He's here!

Our little Rajan baby is here! He was born on March 4th. I had a scheduled c-section. It was quite an interesting week afterward, with our little one spending 5 nights in the NICU. That was hard. I got to stay at the hospital in my room for 4 nights, and then 5th night they let us sleep in the family room(like a little motel room) at the NICU. We came home, very joyfully, on Saturday(the 9th)! He didn't have huge issues, but some fast breathing, maintaining temperature, and oxygen level. And thankfully they resolved themselves in only a couple days. I have more to share and more pictures, but life with a newborn is busy busy! I love him so much though. :)

Final countdown

One week from today, I hope I will be holding my new little baby boy!
My c-section is scheduled for Monday at noon. Of course, who knows if I will go into labor before then! I can't believe it's just one week away until I get to see our new little baby's face.

 I have been in major "nesting" mode for weeks. So much is already set up and ready now. I just need to focus on regular household chores until we go to the hospital.

Can't wait to see you, baby boy!

Three weeks left. Birthdays and Baby Shower!

Technically, two weeks and six days until my scheduled c-section! I have been in nesting mode for weeks, even though the house is still not all put together nicely! I did organize closets that were overstuffed, decorated the baby's room, and put baby things away.

We also had our son's 5th birthday party at McWane Science Center the Sunday before last, and my baby shower was last Sunday! My husband's birthday is less than a week before Kavi's, so we had fun for that too.

As for my shower, my mom and sister (with some help from my dad) transformed their house into a cabin with a black bear/lumber jack theme for the shower! It was so cute!! They even asked the guests to wear plaid, so almost everyone did show up wearing plaid or flannel! It was so nice.

Nursery inspiration

I know my blog has been pretty neglected with posts only here and there every once in awhile! Still, decided it was time to share more about what has been up lately!

We will have a new baby in less than 2 months! (a baby boy)

I have been in more of a nesting mood lately! With Christmas and New Years being over, I could focus more on baby stuff.

Yesterday my husband painted the spare room/office room/soon-to-be baby's room! It's a light minty blueish color. "Almost Aqua".

Here's some of my nursery inspiration:
