Mama and Papa see me for the first time.

June 30, 2013
A couple months later they anxiously await my arrival..

All my cousins are looking forward to showing me the ropes.

Mama can't wait for me to come out!

My room is all ready...

August 4, 2013
After putting Mama through 14 hours of labor at home and another 7 in the hospital, here I am!
I weighed in at 6 lbs. 6 oz. and I'm 21" tall.

Mama and I meet for the first time.

The nurse put on my first diaper, I didn't like it too much.

I made us a party of three!

Papa can't get enough of me.

Dr. Chen delivered me in a record 10 minutes of pushing!

Dadi can't stop smiling at me!

Neither can Dadu.

Tata and Ammamma rushed to New York in under 7 hours because they couldn't wait to meet me.

Dadu put my kara on me.

Papa is practicing the five S's: Shushing me...

Swaddling me..

My first visitors came to see me:
Suma Aunty is practicing cuddling a baby girl :)

Vivek Uncle came back from the Hamptons to bring me pretty lillies and check me out!

Mike Uncle and Simone Aunty can't believe it's been ten months since they were here for Kiera's birth and reminisced about the room!

The doctor wants me to supplement my meals with some formula so Papa is feeding me with a cup so I don't get too used to a bottle just yet.

August 6, 2013
Papa is busy sending out the announcement of my arrival.. and practicing multitasking!

Room with a view..

Mama is a little nervous to leave the hospital and all the amazing nurses..

But I'm ready to go!

Bye Bye Mount Sinai..

Hello... home sweet home!

Me and all my grandparents!

Pretty flowers that Dadi brought me..

..and perfectly pink mini roses Tata picked out for me.
