Congrats Abhi... Spend as much time as possible with the little one and try to enjoy every moment of it. You will never notice how fast the time passes by once the kids come in to your life.

Abhi, you must have got my sms.
One thing I forgot to put there: Do not take her photo using flash light.

Will take care next time.

Ya why not?
Here is a small travelogue:
Doctor examined her Friday night @ 11PM at Belle Veu's Cambridge Hospital and told that She will deliver between 10-noon on Saturday (22nd). Me and my mom went home to catch some sleep telling my wife and her mom (she was there with her in hospital) to take a nap. Although my wife started to get mild pains still i told her to try to sleep.

Reached home at 11:30PM and went to bed. A call from my wife at 12:30PM woke me up. She was struggling to talk and told that doctor wants the husband to be in ASAP.

Me and my mom immediately rushed to the hospital. It took me exactly 15min to cover Kagadasapura Main Road(25th Cross) - BigBazar - Ulsoor PS - Cambridge...For the first time I touched 3 digit speeds inside Bangalore @OMR...To be precise car touched 110kmph on 4th gear. GOD knows when I jumped those 2 small bumps near IOC in Indirangar.. neither me nor mom remembers it...

Reached there, everyone was ready, only signature was waiting. I signed the documents and the baby was delivered in the next 30min. Eventful night you know !! Will be sending the pics soon.

Surprisingly baby stopped to cry when I took her into the car on Monday on the way back home. Is this the effect of the nandihills, ooty, bandipur, coorg, and the small drives here n there which she did in her mother's womb? Well, time will tell...

Abhi

Congrats Abhi on the news. It gives great pleasure to have a baby girl because she adjusts so well you won't imagine that.

My kid Urvi is 3 years now, she enjoys every bit of travelling bangalore to nanitaal by air/road or bangalore to goa by air or bangalore to coastal karnataka by Petrol Innova. She has travel sickness but still enjoys the ride and site seeing. In last 3 years she has already travelled more than 25,000km with us and enjoyed every bit of it.

About taking photo good advise from expert Rudra. Make sure direct flash won't fall on her face you can take it from side angle when she sleeps.

Once she is 10 months you can get set ready to take her on long drive by air or road Air travel highly not recomanded within 10 months.

All the best!

Regards,

Ravi.
