New Addition to our Clan!!!

March 20, 2009

I must be the happiest guy in the whole universe!!! The reason for that is my elder cousin sister, my dearest dearest dearest cousin sister has given birth to a “dude in the making” today, the 20th of March 2009 at 10:32 PM IST.

Dear (he who has not been named yet),
You must be the luckiest guy in the world for having such wonderful parents. I can say that since I have known your mother for almost 26 years and your dad for almost 5 years now!!! Your dad would probably go down in history as the sweetest soul there ever existed and please don’t take advantage of that when you grow up. On the other hand, I am sure that your Mom would be very strict but kind. She is a smart lady and would be totally ready for all your tricks. I can say that coz I have tried many and never succeeded.

God Bless and May you know someday, that your uncle’s (makes me sound old) heart which is 8000 miles away right now beats for you and that your uncle took a vow 3 hours back, that he would do anything to ensure that you are happy and would also strive hard to be the best possible uncle and meet your standards!!!

Dear Sister NS,
The circle of life is just truly wonderful, now that I think of it. It only seems like yesterday that we were both playing with He-Man and GI Joe toys for hours and hours together and I thank you for the time you spent engaging this tiny brat even though you did not like it. I also thank you for introducing this little brat to the world of Enid Blyton and also for reading out to him, the stories of fatty and his little doggie Buster when ever he used to pester you. When we were young, this brat always used to wait for the summer holidays, so that he could come to Cochin from Chennai and have an absolute blast for two months and he still vividly remembers all the holidays, especially the pillow fights and bathroom skating competitions. I only wish that we could meet more often now!

Thanks a lot of advising me on multiple issues ranging from girls to bank savings and I will retain till death, the wisdom you have passed on………
I might be 8000 miles away, but my heart and soul is with you guys in Cochin now!!!

Yours Lovingly,

Ladies and Gentlemen: Is it possible to feel so much affection for a little baby you have never seen? I don’t know but I am literally walking in the clouds and I have not yet seen a photo of the little one!

    Yes it is possible and perfectly normal to feel this way. I felt the same when my cousin brother had a baby girl.Maybe its because of the equation you share with them.When you know they are happy you feel happy too.

    Yes it is possible to feel such affection for a little new human you have not even seen! I learnt it when I met my brother’s daughter… I had never realised it till then.

    Many congratulations and warmest wishes to your family and to you 🙂
    I can imagine a post here when you see him for the first time, and many more in coming years!
    Nieces and Nephews are double fun because they are all the fun with no real responsibility 🙂

    I think you are going to make a great mama, telling him OG stories and talking to him about everything under the sun.

    Congratulations Ajith….

    I would like to say that the little one is very lucky to have such a “mama”.

    In this world of ours where relations are getting thinner as years go by, reading your blog made my day!

    May your tribe increase…
