Say hello to Saanvi!

Hey everyone!

So I was keeping a secret all year this year. A secret that got bigger each month πŸ˜‰ Yup it was our first baby!!!

I’m a very private person so didn’t feel like sharing the news that we were expecting a baby on the blog. Not till she was actually here.

But now she is!!! Saanvi was born on June 11 at 7.17 pm. She was 4 weeks early at 36 weeks but is healthy at 6.2 lbs. Her name is one of the names of goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity.

If I have been MIA here on the blog for a while, its because I had a 4-day long labor. Saanvi and I are doing fine now and settling in the newborn cuddling phase.

Unfortunately we aren’t ready yet for Saanvi to make a photo debut here on the blog. I promise you’ll have an overload of baby pics soon! In the meantime wanna see how she looked as a bump?


And how about a peek at her tiny footprints just an hour after birth?


I’ll be away from crafting for a while including illustrating as you might have read on the Verve blog. When I resume crafting/blogging, I hope you will visit here regularly again! Till then I’ll be onΒ the wonderful journey of motherhood and would love to hear your tips if any on it πŸ™‚

    Congratulations! What a wonderful announcement to read. I applaud you for taking your time, enjoying your new role as mommy and learning all about your precious baby. The best “advice” I have is that the days are long and the years are short so try not to get wrapped up in the things that just don’t matter in the long run.


  10. Maye M.L.

    Congratulations, may health and happiness surround you and your family always. May love keep growing along with her so that you and your husband grow stronger too to make happiness each and every day. cheers!
