Kaiden

Introducing Our New Bundle of Joy

Vishnu and I welcomed our beautiful baby boy into this world last Thursday at 12:55 am.  Kaiden’s arrival was a bit more dramatic than we had anticipated, but we’re all doing well and adjusting to our new life as a family of 3!

Kaiden

So far, Kaiden’s a pretty chill baby, except when he’s hungry and has a wet diaper (doesn’t mind those dirty ones though!).  Vishnu and I are obviously on cloud nine and overjoyed about our little guy (can’t. stop. starting.at. him!).  But let’s be real.  We’re also sleep deprived and clumsily finding our way in terms of parenthood.  I suppose that’s the fun of it though!

My mom’s staying with us for at least four weeks, and let me tell you, she’s my saving grace as I learn the new mom ropes.  Totally have a newfound respect and appreciation for her (and moms in general!).

I promise to share more soon, including Kaiden’s birth story and a few other post ideas I have floating around in my head.  Now I just need to find time to type everything out.  You wouldn’t think it, but tiny humans are VERY time consuming! 🙂

5 year anniversary

5 Years of Love, Laughter, and Driving Each Other a Little Crazy

Today is mine and Vishnu’s wedding anniversary!  5 years of love, laughter, and driving each other a little crazy.  And I wouldn’t change any of it for the world!

On our wedding day, I remember thinking, “This is the BEST day of my life.  I’m marrying my best friend.”  And while it was an amazing day and so special in so many ways, I now know how wrong I was.  It wasn’t the best day of my life.

Every day since, no matter how hard or crazy, has been the best.  Waking up next to him is the best. Eating with him is the best.  Watching TV with him is the best.  Running errands with him is the best.  Cooking with him is the best.  Yes, even arguing with him is…ok so not the best, but there’s no one else I’d rather bicker with!  Basically, doing life with him is the BEST.

And soon enough navigating parenthood with him will be the best!

Love you, boo!  Here’s to the past 5 years and the lifetime ahead of us!
