Random Update #3

Published / by Elizabeth / Leave a Comment

~ writing here is something that I really wanted to do, but when I get the time, I really don’t want to go through the process.

~the lack of posts on this blog will continue for some more time unless I get back my mojo by virtue of some miracle..Highly unlikely :)

~ my third child is due in a month. I am expecting the baby to arrive early.

~ i prefer to work in office rather than from home. But since it is risky to travel much in the last month, I have decided to work for 2-3 weeks from home till the baby arrives.

~i have read some good books over the past few months. Some of them were re-reads and some were new. Overall satisfied with the progress.

~ i was very excited about reading on my kindle until recently. But these days, I prefer to go back to physical books. Then I feel that kindle books are overpriced too.

That is all for now…Cya…

We are back

So we are actually back with full force on this blog after a 6 week hiatus. And Junior has gained some weight and did lose some hair. Yes, he is a very serious guy. We really really have to work hard to get that rare smile on his face :)

And the girl seems to enjoy her days at my parents’ place in Kerala. Here you can see her helping in drying the baby’s clothes when we got a bit of sun inbetween the heavy showers. We saw a lot of rains, thunderstorms here in the past few weeks and it was nice, but scary for the kiddos.

Clara had not ventured out of the house much after we came here because I usually leave her with my maid and mom whenever I go to the hospital. The above pic was taken during one of the rare occasions when she went out with her father . She is holding her much precious ‘Popy'( brand name) umbrella and you can see that the yard is still wet from the rains.

We bought Clara 3 books out of the ‘How To Train Your Dragon’ series. As of now, she is quite young to appreciate the books, but then one day we will see her reading and enjoying them.Atleast that is our plan !!!

I read quite a few books and there are at least 8-10 book reviews that I need to write apart from the movies that I want to talk about here. But alas, I am way too lazy to sit and type whenever both kiddos are sleeping because I just want to snuggle close to either of them or both and go to sleep…

The vacation saw me active on twitter, but then I don’t think it did any good for this blog, though it kept me occupied and was helpful in making some nice friends. And the number of instagram pics of books that I got to ogle at was just awesome.

My vacation helped me in discovering few trends in the bookish world. Like many serious reviewers end up reading and reviewing the same set of books and this small set of people are quite capable of making or breaking a deal for an author irrespective of the quality of the book. That is why few books get over-hyped and your interest fizzles out when you start reading them.  But most of the time we get to read the best books out there because of these people ( I don’t yet count myself in that group though I actually read quite a lot of ARCs)

I think I have become very picky about which books to read and you can see some recently popular book reviews on this blog soon. Now that the baby has grown a bit, I hope to get some time to write the pending reviews and keep up this blog. Watch out for me dear friends !!!

Its a Boy !!!

Published / by Elizabeth / 2 Comments on Its a Boy !!!

My son was due on 18th Friday, but he decided that he had enough  time inside my tummy and decided to come on Sunday early morning. I was not feeling comfortable after my checkup on Saturday and decided to visit the hospital to see if what I feel is actually labor pains. And then when I was getting ready, my water broke :) So my junior came on 1:37 am on July 13th. I will not say it was an easy task to push out this teeny weeny thing, but then everything got over quite quickly :)

I have been planning to put up a post here, but then was procastinating the task for few days. Junior had an unexpected bout of severe diarrhoea which saw us back in hospital within two days after we were discharged. Now Junior is on ‘good’ intestinal bacteria diet everyday :P.

I was quite worried about my toddler daughter who has not spent a night away from me and then she surprised me by waving me off to hospital at 11 in the night when I told her that I will bring the baby back when I come…It was like a miracle considering she was very sleepy at that point. To be frank, she is behaving much better than expected, though she is compensating for all that by throwing all the potty training out of the window…Sigh!

The night visit to hospital happened second time when we saw that Junior may get dehydrated if we don’t control the diarrhoea a day after we were discharged from hospital. It seems that few newborns does not take well to mother’s milk also initially. Thank god there were no intravenous fluids or NICU stays for the little one.

So now we are back home, trying to take as much rest as possible and catching some sleep whenever both kiddos allow me to do so…Will update you with more news and reviews in the coming days.

On books, thanks to hubby, I am reading ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ by J K Rowling. He bought the e-book when we were in hospital and he was bored with whatever he was reading :)
