PRADHAN'S India trip is one of the memorable moments for me because i hadn't expected nor have i thought once also about how i will cope up with pradhan without my mom's help but to my surprise i have spent most of the first year with mom ,dad and my brother arun ..

When i reached India i was so scared about pradhan's behaviour with everyone,i was thinking will he mingle with everyone,but everything went on so smoothly..
i spent my first week in bangalore at amma's place so i and pollu get adjusted with the weather and also jetlag,then we went to Raghu's ancestrol house MAvanthoor.My sister in law's and my hubby had scared me to be carefull as my co sister's son aditya was very naughty.But he was not as noughty as i thought he didnt do anything to pollu ,i spent my 3 weeks there and came to Bangalore.

Pradhan was 6 months at the time when i came to bangalore by then he had started to sit but to my surprise he learnt to crawl after he sit,he was enjoying the company of appu and muthu..I didnt go any where in these 2 months ,but i spent some money to dietician but i am too lazy to do as she had told me,but i have joined indusladies and i am getting motivation to diet from there ..

ohhhh i forgot to share that when pollu was 3 month old he called "amma" for the first time,pollu was becoming naughtier day by day,and at the same time i was feeling that raghu missed most of his developments [i really feel bad for that]and raghu came to india on a brief holiday and in this time we had Pradhan's naming ceremony in bangalore for which everyone had come and we enjoyed it thoroughly,ater 21dec 2008 we had function every week on 28th we had bhakti's naming ceremony[Raghu's cousin's daughter]and my uncle's 60th birthday ,next week i missed my cousin's engagement as we had gone for stamping luckily my MIL got visa for 10 years since she was coming along with us i missed going back with raghu,

Raghu spent one month with pollu i was very happy with that..and i am just waiting when will join him..You know most of the women are not lucky as me because they don't get fair amount of time to spend with their parents after the baby is born.For this golden opportunity i must thank Raghu and i would like to tell him that I LOVE HIM A LOT..

Here are some of his details

HIEGHT :21.5"

The joys and challenge of mother hood was about to begin.I knew after the pradhan was born i had lots of hard work and at the same time fun.A new baby needs a constant care for both me and pradhan the physical changes which i went in 9 months will continue till i decide to breast feed the baby...

New baby on the block
Finally our big moment arrived and our little baby came out.Here's a glimpse at our new born's first few weeks of life.
Pradhan was displying some of the newborn reflexs and sometimes he was fun looking after leaving in the womb for 9 months i remember how we took him for his first check up,he had lost 1lb 
 He's likely smiling up a storm and maybe even laughing (the world's most delicious sound) or squealing in delight over Mommy's antics. It was fun seeing him do cooing sounds .
As he had hydronephrosis the county nurse came to visit him and also to know how we were taking care of him..she was very happy to see his growth as it was in full zoom

the first one month i wa son a special diet made by my mom and it is a common treatment given in INDIA after the delivery ..Pradhan was very quiet baby who slept all day long he was the same way all through the first 3 month..My mom was feeling bad that she couldnt spend much time with Pradhan 

when Pradhan turned to 4th month the county nurse said that he must fall on his tummy but he took his own sweet time to fall on his tummy.and on krishna janmasthmi he fell on his tummy ...after my  sweety pie fell on his tummy we had feast my mom prepared payasam...

Then since both my mom and dad had visited us we went to NIAGARA FALLS,TIMES SQUARE,NEW YORK and oops i missed out one place WISCONSIN its a place where my sweety pie saw crocodile and other wild animals and also touched deers for the first time in his new life...

We enjoyed these trips and as i started packing for my trip to INDIA and raghu got shingles i thought i would cancel my trip to INDIA but thank god it got cured very fast and i travelled to india with pradhan when he was 4 and  a half month old

Till we reach bombay pradhan was doing well but as we flied from mumbai to bangalore pradhan could'nt tolerate the ear pain he started to cry at top of his voice and i just couldnt manage him but as soon we landed he was ok.

This is how we travelled a big journey from CHICAGO TO INDIA...
