Happy Diwali & Prosperous New Year !

Diwali is the biggest and the brightest festivals celebrated by families around the world. Deepavali (actuall name of Diwali) means "a row of lights." This auspicious day is also known as the "festival of lights. There is a saying “An Happiness can be found from darkest of dark if one knows how to switch on the light” !

There is so much happening during this whole week, people starts preparing for Diwali, shops (e-shops J) are full of sales and there is light all over. People celebrates Diwali with many other things like firecrackers, visiting friends and family places and having lots of sweets ! Well, I miss those days celebrating Diwali with lots of firecrackers and lights on streets with friends. A lot of regulation here.. but still we manage to celebrate with some of crackers in our patio J One of these years, I am going to take a vacation to celebrate Diwali back home town to renew my Diwali spirit.

I hold your little hand in mine, it reminds me that life is so fine !!

I could not stop writing this post Daddy's little guy !! Actually, I must say, every day is a new post with lots of fun and excitement when you have baby at home!!

I am sure, all parents must have experienced this fun, every parents probably would have different story to share. Here is ours... and this one is for you my life.. Aarav !

I still remember the post I wrote last year on "parenthood" and fun.. ! You were 9 months old and were away from your Daddy for few weeks, I know how hard was that time! I can't believe 20 months have passed since you came in to this beautiful world. Time flew so fast, may be because we enjoy, we really did enjoy watching you grow up my son ! I must say, you fascinate us with your every little milestones. You are the one making us feeling happy every day and busy too ! You are the reason of our life little one... ! I don't know if I will be able to do what it takes to achieve all my dreams but I do know that I will do whatever it takes to help you achieve all your dreams as you grow up.

We are observing changes within you. For instance, we noticed how you reaches out to brightly colored toy cars. How can we forgot your interest in music? We were thinking babies at the age of one and half probably would not know about the specific type of musics and you proved us wrong my hero !! We surprised to see you enjoying music. Well, place does not matter fro you, you are just enjoying :). I still remember that shopping day, we were busy in debating to chose some cloths while you were enjoying and dancing on the song played in the store, I recorded that moment in a short video and enjoying to see you and your innocent dance on the floor every time we play this :). I tried not to miss single moment of our life together and keep recording, lots of selfies, videos, photos and of course few blog posts :) I am sure you will enjoy each and every thing when you see and feel this !!

I still remember the first word at the age of 11th month you pronounced saying "baasssh.." it was soo sweet to inform people "that's.. it" but for you it wasn't !! :) Later, each day something new.. few of them are "Basee... (this one is for bus)", "Ohh nuuuuu", "Oooooo", "Mummaa", "Dadeee" etc... Wait, How can I forget "Ishikaa.." :) Today I could see you are trying to copy every single word we ask you to speak with your cute way ! Whatever you speak is way more impressive and cute than we speak, no matter whether its correct or not !! You would not know how cute you were speaking unless you hear yourself all these moments I captured for you. You know, I am addicted to your cuteness your laughter, your sweetness hugs and kisses, magic and your response to the music and dancing with me. I love that you let your imagination make your and our life more exciting and colorful.

You would probably enjoy the moments and fun you have enjoyed with your first friend in your life.. Devarsh ! Lucky you that you have Devarsh as first friend in your life. Couple cutees are waiting for the best time to come in to the beautiful world to give you a company :). I am sure and wish you all will have fun in future and enjoy your life wherever you all may be !! Have fun guys.. life is yours!! 

 There has never been, nor will there ever be anything quite so special as the love between you and us !

Love you LisAnk-Aarav !

Thank You !

I was standing in the greeting card section of the grocery store a couple of days ago, I just couldn't find a card that could adequately express the love that I feel for you Lisa. After a 4 years of marriage, I just can't believe how happy I am !

From last couple days I have been thinking that how often I express my appreciation to you for all such things that you have been doing for me. Today, I could not stop writing myself. “Thank You” for your all support and being with me during my bad and good time. Last 4 years that I have passed would have been not so memorable if you would have not been part of my life. I would like to ensure that passing years have not diminished my love and caring nature for you in the least, Instead my love only depends on time because it always gives me more opportunities to appreciate how you have been managing challenges in our life in good and bad time. I would like to express thanks for all your support and care that you have been doing for myself and family from last 4 years.

I was recalling memories of our travel to many states of USA and India, late night long drives on express ways, fun with friends and family etc.. 1st March, 2011 was the day when the new chapter of our life started, since then we have been writing lines by lines and paragraphs by paragraphs. It always gives me more happiness whenever I go back and open any page of this chapter and read any paragraph, because each and every paragraph has one or more reasons for the happiness J. Thanks for writing such a wonderful memories on one of the best chapter in my life, I wish we keep filling up the contents for coming years and years and years !

I know, 2014 is the best memorable year in our life as our dream came true! We blessed with a Cute little pie, our little champ “Aarav”. Since then the days are passing extremely fast with lots of happiness every day. I would not like to miss the opportunity to celebrate so much of happiness that we gathered together since last 4 years. Hope you loved the arrangement! Aarav, you made our life even more beautiful, adding lots of happiness every day. We wish you a great life with lots of happiness around.

I was given a mic during the party by my friends and asked to express the feeling over the past years of togetherness, the moment I start expressing thanks for them, they stopped me saying friends are not whom you should express thanks J… My dear friends you guys are awesome !! made our life even more joyful ! I know here you would not be able to stop me J

Thank you all of you my friends, you blessed us with your best wishes on the occasion of our 4th wedding anniversary and our cute little Son’s first birthday. Special thanks to all of you who attended the party and made our day even more wonderful. Without your presence that day would have been just like another day in the calendar ! I still remember the time, decoration was not ready, arrangement was not done till last hour and you guys made it possible with your hard efforts. Friends like you all made my party totally worthy!

The music wouldn't have been exciting, food wouldn't have been yummy, drinks (soft one J) wouldn't have been slurpy if you hadn't come to our party ! By gracing our party you guys have graced our heart with joy and our day with good wishes !

Love you LisAarav and Thank you all.
LisAnk-Aarav !
