Parcel from Bhutan

"Words left unsaid will sit inside your mind screaming" Raine Cooper

I am very excited to share this beautiful moment I had with my daughter this evening.

Today, on this beautiful rainy day, I checked my mailbox as Bumchu and I returned from the city library. 

I saw a "safe drop" message from post office. I was so excited, my long waited parcel is waiting for me to collect it. It is very rare I get such thoughtful gifts from Bhutan so I was obviously over the moon and feeling lucky to have special friends in Bhutan.

When I received the parcel, call it crazy or funny, I closed my eyes, brushed my nose close to the package and took a deep breath. I thought, "the Bhutanese smell must have disappeared in transit."

When Bumchu saw the yellow package, she thought it is something to eat so she couldn't keep her excitement down either. She said, "Nang nang"  with her two cute small hands reaching out for the parcel.

Both of us couldn't contain our 'own' excitement and we opened it as soon as we got home.

Voila! I exclaimed, "YOUR KIRA and TEGO" 

She gave a huge hug like it was  her toy. I smiled and explained to her, "This is dress, you wear it" feeling tremendously happy and thankful for amazing people in my life.

There she goes, totally rocking her new outfit.

I probably must have thanked numerous times  but anyway, thank you Ana Luzee and my dear friend Kezang for sending your love to Bumchu.

Hokey Pokey Dance

Music is such a beautiful thing. It makes you laugh, cry, sing, dance and learn and even brings people together.

My daughter is fond of nursery rhymes and music in general. She loves Psy's Gangham style and Gentleman and Silento's Watch me whip and watch me Nae Nae at the moment.

I can't say which songs she likes best but I can certainly tell you that she likes upbeat music. As soon she hears the song she knows, her face lights up with contend smile and slowly pulls off her cute dancing steps wiggling and just shaking it off. 

Walking home through Botanic Garden

Whenever we go out without a baby pram or the stroller or even the baby sling, she get's excited because she is free to walk without any buckles around her.

The problem is later when she gets tired, I feel the pang of her tiredness.

Taking a rest 

As her tiredness reach the peak time, I sing her favourite songs and this helps her to calm her down.

Doing the Hokey Pokey
She is dancing to "Hokey Pokey" song which I learned because of her. Thank you my little girl for showing me that I can sing and learn nursery rhymes too.

2nd January!

There is first time to every moment in your life from the day you are born into this crazy, mad and beautiful world. 

So today, as we went out to town, we found this beautiful, cute and little umbrella stocked up at the entrance of the shop. Since, coming week is a rainy week, Bumchu got her first umbrella. 

My First Dora Umbrella :)

I love it
I feel a sense of pride as I see her become independent and learn to do things on her own.

First blog, 2016

Wow, this feels strange! (In a good way). I am finally back to blog after a long break of 10 months period. I missed blogging. Well, my daughter is an excuse for not blogging because I don't have time to write. I am tiny bit guilty because it is not the whole truth. I have been slacking on it and most of the time, procrastinating. 

But today is not an excuse for me not to blog. This is what special day like first day of the new year do to you-that vibe of really wanting to do it and not be disappointed later on.  The first day of the year is just puuurrrr-fect!!! 

Anyway,back to my blog, the past few years has been an roller coaster ride for me; emotionally, mentally and physically. I am sure, as I blog, I will be sharing a lot about it.  

I am so blessed to be a mother to my precious girl, who turned two on 16th December, 2015. I cannot imagine my world without her. At present, my world is- if my daughter is happy, I am ten folds time happier for both of us.

As blessings come, so do disappointments. There are trials and rewards throughout everyone's life. It was no different to me. 

There wouldn't be light without darkness. As I surpassed through difficult times, I have also met wonderful people in my life who helped me get back to my feet.

For me, year 2015 has been an awesome journey of learning, discovering and growing up as an individual and most importantly as a mother.

Not to forget, I am thankful for my awesome friends for lending me their listening years,  supporting me through thick and thin.

Year 2015 hasn't been the most happiest one but it was not the worst as well.

I hope, you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve!

Tell a Tale? (Part 1)

Stranger to Love?
No more strange!
The night was young, loud and exhilarating!
A happy young man pursued a girl
He said, “Can we see each other again?”
Her heart was youthful and innocent
She said, “Yes, we can try”
Left the floor hoping to see him again.

The day was calm, friendly and peaceful
He sent a lovely message
It read, “I really like you and want to know you more”
Her heart was confused but happy
She replied, “________________?"
Put off the phone to let it be.

The day was promising and convincing
He reached out to see her
He said, “I Love You ”
Her heart was hesitant and cautious
She answered, “I will think about it”
Departed to respond to him later.

The day was sensational and extraordinary
He came to see her again,
He said, “I can’t stop thinking about you”
Her heart was willing and loving
She whispered, “Yes, I Love you too”
Stayed to pass the day with him

So began the tale of young girl and a boy.

The Year That Was

The end of year 2013 marks the beginning of my amazing journey to Motherhood. My darling daughter was born on 16th December 2013 at 11:03pm, a 2.9 kg.
I am writing this blog after 1 year and I still can’t express how great the emotions of excitement, gratitude, fear, stress, and happiness is now.

1 month old

I am officially a mother (Remembering the time when I couldn’t come to terms with this term, “mother”) Funny! ☺

@Wollongong Library

The most amazing journey of my daughter’s first year of life was how much she accomplished in so little time. She went from exclusive breastfeeding to eating adult meal, of course without chilli.
She had an extensive vocabulary at 8 months that she was able to read along with me.
Whenever I read her favourite story book, "New Shoes", she would just calm down. Even to now, she is the same. Now that I have memorised the story, she loves to listen to me telling the story before bedtime, to be specific.

The place where she learned to stand up

Her all time Fav Musical Toy Walker

She tested every limit she encountered.
From 7 months, her wild and super funny personality emerged. She started to nod her head up and down when asked, stomped her feet and clapped her hand. Thanks to her favorite toy that she played so repeatedly and eventually got into her head. Now, she will not stop until someone sees her doing it.

On her 1st Birthday

Thankfully, being a mother got easier as days went on. I learned to stop second guessing myself about everything. Most of all, I learned to trust my instincts.
I want to thank my daughter for making the person I am today. Without her, my life is literally going to be empty.  In her, I put my faith, my love, my strength, and my life to make her feel safe and happy.

Happy 2nd Valentine's Day My Baby Girl, Daisy Choetsho Drolma!!! I Love You Unconditionally!

p,s, Thank you Passu Sir for nominating me or should I say, for missing me here at the blog?! :)

Thank you my other good friends for checking out on me. You guys rock. Happy Valentine's Day Everyone. Spread the Love!!!
