Babies are like modern art...parents spend most of the time trying to figure what they are saying...

My baby came home on Friday. Till we were in the hospital I was not fully aware of the responsibility it was going to be as the baby spent most of the time in the nursery...but once we got home it all dawned upon me. Thanks to the support of my mother-in-law that it has been easy so far. But to Sanjana's credit, she has been real sweet too...for the past five days she has not been really troublesome either. Maybe that phase is yet to come. She pretty much sleeps, eats, poops and pees and occassionaly cries when she needs something...typically food is all she needs so far...

I am looking forward to following days when I can decipher this beautiful peice of art that we have created...

Today is October 08, 2007 and marks the official end of my pregnancy per the various calendars, my doctor, and my sonograms...but here I am still sitting at work and waiting for the shootings pains to start or some liquid to spill out...and nada...I am still waiting...that is my status update.

Loads of friends and family called over the weekend to see if anything has happened yet and it in a small way has done nothing more than increase my anxiety. Then again they are all well wishers and only want the best for me. At this point I am not sure what to expect in terms of pain or emotions other than the stress of waiting...but since the baby has been moving normally and everything so far has been pretty decent...I guess I will enjoy the wait :)
