he turns 5 on 4th !!

Hriday’s birthday is on 4th June and this post was to be put up on 4th but blame the impatient me….. lets post it right away… now that its ready…


5 years ago this day he came into our life with all of us eagerly waiting at the hospital in Bhauch… All my friends had come over since morning and we waited (played a bit of cricket too with the kids near the hospital) and finally he came into our lives at 1.15 pm. His birthday reads 4-6-4 which tell to my cricket crazy mind that a cricketer is born… and hopefully a fast bowler at that… !!!!


A long time ago Solilo tagged me to do the first born tag, so since then I had been trying to get my missus to do it but she is really very reluctant to sit on the computer and type things… Eventually 2 days back I sat at home and asked her the questions and typed her answers.


Also my expert commentary will accompany : here we go…


1. Was your first pregnancy planned?

Mrs : Yes

2. Were you married at the time?

Mrs : Afsos.. !! but yes !! (silly question this)

3. What were your reactions?

Mrs : Thrilled, ecstatic…

4. Was abortion an option for you?

Mrs : No

5. How old were you?

Mrs : 25 years

6. How did you find out you were pregnant?

Mrs : Pregnancy stick.

7. Who did you tell first?

Mrs : My hubby on phone..

8. Due date?

Mrs : 5th June, and he came 1 day early on the 4th of June after making us wait a lot.

Me : I would ask her almost every day before leaving home, after reaching home and that was my first line everytime she called… is it time ???? I really could not wait and Hriday made us wait all the way !!!

9. Did you have morning sickness?

Mrs : Never.

10. What did you crave?

Mrs : I craved for nothing … I ate everything like a horse.

Me : All the time I am telling her to walk, jog stay fit not eat too many sweets etc.. (being a medical rep makes u like that) but this was her time to eat any and everything without me actually stopping her… my Mom would kill me if I stopped her.. !

11. Who/what irritated you the most?

Mrs : Everybody’s suggestion, this is good and this is not.. no one was thinking of me just the baby !!! GAWD

12. What was your first child’s sex?

Mrs : Baby Boy.

13. Did you wish you had the opposite sex of what you were getting?

Mrs : Only for one reason, if it were a girl I would have been able to dress her up in so many different dresses. Otherwise it didn’t matter

14. How many pounds did you gain throughout the pregnancy?

Mrs : 10kgs

15. Did you have a baby shower?

Mrs : Small one. My MIL gave me a coconut in my lap and we did lit a “diya”

16. Was it a surprise or did you know?

Mrs : Not applicable.

17. Did you have any complications during your pregnancy?

Mrs : None whatsoever.

Me : she had an almost non-problematic pregnancy, our gyneac did not prescribe her any medicines not even folic acid .. no nothing… she worked in a school as a teacher …. 12pm to 6pm her job timings where she rarely used to get time to sit… i guess it all helped in the end… she worked till the school ended in April.. there after she and my mom would everyday walk a pretty long distance guess about (2 kms one way) to eat Gola’s (Indian Ice Lollies, incase you didnt know) 🙂

18. Where did you give birth?

Mrs : Hospital obviously !! lol in Bharuch.

Me : ha ha ha !!!!

19. How many hours were you in labor?

Mrs : About 3 and half hours

Me : Amazingly she wouldnt let me inside the room, she wanted my mom and mil but not me.. everytime I would go there she would push me out… sigh 😦

20. Who drove you to the hospital/birth center?

Mrs : My father, Mother, MIL FIL. Hubby and his brothers took the two wheelers at 5.30 am.

Me : at 5 am suddenly someone was calling me from the bathroom… i woke up as if what happened.. and she said we must go to the hospital… I think its time… and we were all like thrilled… !!!! 🙂 😀

21. Who watched you give birth?

Mrs : My ob/gyn & 2 nurses. My husband wanted to come in but the gyneac wouldn’t allow.

Me : These are strange things, why wouldnt our gyneacs let us husbands in ???

22. Was it natural or c-section?

Mrs : Natural

23. Did you take medicine to ease the pain?

Mrs : No.

24. How much did your child weigh?

Mrs : Almost 7 lbs

25. When was your child actually born ?

Mrs : 4th June at 1.15pm.

Me : I was the one who heard his voice first outside !

26. What was your reaction when the doctor announced the sex of
the baby?

Mrs : I was more happy that the baby was healthy. Strangely they wouldn’t tell me the sex of the baby for the first 10 minutes till they cut the cord and stiched. The sex didn’t really matter though ! Was really relieved that its all well and OVER !!

27. What was your first reaction on seeing the baby?

Mrs : After seeing his bums and his head I was almost like what is this.. the paedriatrician assured me he was normal. I was very happy, Hriday had very rosy lips and seeing them made me feel elated.

Me : when the nurse came to us with the baby in blue we knew it was a boy, she came to me but i was a bit nervous to hold him so my mom took him… then slowly i took him, my brother commented immedeatly that he is a duplicate of his Mom… but I didnt agree then and dont still… he is a duplicate of me in my childhood… almost a carbon copy … I ll post pics of him and me as young kids a lil later to prove this… we all were thrilled.. I never used to like small babies or hold them, but when i took him from my mom i knew exactly how to hold him… he had really red lips, eyes closed and really thin fingers… he was bathed in powder… then again as I and my brothers noticed his head we were all worried its too long… and my MIL and mom assured he was perfect… !!!! My dad was thrilled… he is very quiet doesnt say anything… but i could see it in his eyes… he was probably happier than me.. !

28. Did you cry?

Mrs : Yes… a lil.

29. What did you name him/her?

Mrs : Hriday.

Me : we had it decided if it would be a girl it would be Reva and if a boy Hriday. I dont believe in any Rashi vashi and I didnt want to even know what it was… I hate such things.. we both loved these two names… Reva means Narmada… we used to live on the banks of Narmada.. we simply loved that name… !

30. How old is your first born today?

Mrs : He turns 5 today.


Here are pictures of the cakes of his first 4 birthdays… !! drool…


hridays birthday pics 003


On his first birthday we had two parties with all the kids that came to our house for tutions at home. This bugs bunny was his favourite toy in those days. The cake wala did mess up his spelling but… !  


hridays birthday pics 057


In the evening we all had a party at a restaurant with all friends !! This cake in chocolate was really lovely !!!




Trains were his fascination at 2 years age.. !! and so a cake with a train.. !




This was his first birthday in Indore and we didnt know any one here… so just my boss and his family and my parents so the cake size smaller.. but Mickey mouse was his favourite in those days… !


Misc 037


Dinosaurs…. had a real tough time to find this cake.. no one was ready to make this… finally Simi’s !!! a home grown bakery that bakes the best cakes in Indore… helped us out… :

Misc 036



Now a days we are scared of asking him what he wants coz he might just say something impossible to provide.. he wanted birds.. but had to explain to him that they are to fly in the skies… !! eventually came the acquarium and we couldn’t deny… this 5th birthday the cake is to be a lion !!!! (will post pics later)


So while I go find the lion I’ll share one more picture of Hriday with you all…

    Yes relieving it was fun !!! seriously !! and I thank Solilo for that !!!! 😀

    The last answer from you on question 27 is funny. I think I’ve told you Hriday looks like you. 😉

    And ROFL! Wife wouldn’t allow you in whilst giving birth. 😆 😛

    The cakes look delicious.

    So is the blogsphere invited to Hriday’s b’day party??

  4. Winnie the Poohi says:

    You know .. I wonder how it would be when I give birth 🙂 I guess i have to get married to find out.. thats the sad part really 😛

    No marriage for winnie ????

    for the cakes you have to come to indore.. 😀

  5. Indyeah says:

    alle sho cute!
    I had to say this DHiren 😀
    because Hriday is looking so very very cute 😀

    (((hugs)))for the little darling 🙂
    the yellow looks good on him 🙂

    Whom is he looking at?

    He is looking at his mom !! who has taken his attention away so that i can click a natural photo !!! 😀

  6. Saritha says:

    So sweet hriday, touchwood 🙂

    I know the excitment dhiren,kids just love there bdays.You should have waited till june4th to post all these 😦

    My dad was thrilled… he is very quiet doesnt say anything… but i could see it in his eyes… he was probably happier than me.. !—- grandparents are more happy than us as they see their kids in the grandchildren.

    US and other countries make it a point that husbands are there at the time of delivery

    Now a days we are scared of asking him what he wants coz he might just say something impossible— lol this is really true,my daughter wanted a spiderman cake for her 4th bday,and the bakery near my house doesn’t do that,it was hell for me to change her to butterfly cake.

    Hriday is photo copy of u 🙂

    Advance Happy birthday Hriday and big hug and a kiss from me,varunavi and pinky.:) 🙂

    Thank you thank you Saritha !! I really wish they would follow the US system… spiderman cake !!! enjoy !!!! lol…. !!!

    lion cake should be easy… they make the face of simba i guess.. I have seen it !!!

  7. Indyeah says:

    you and your 4-6-4
    ekdum paagal! 😛
    you and your expert commentary..
    cricket style? 😛

    you actually tried to stop her from eating??

    Enough said 😀

    Aww..that is such a cute reason for wanting a baby girl 🙂
    so that she can wear so many dresses 🙂

    10 kgs is fine I think.. thats the normal weight one gains right?

    That is so cute?they walked together to eat golas? 🙂
    Touchwood for their bond

    and two gola’s !!! not just one… !! and ganne ka juice… !!!

    Three and a half hours?
    Oh man!that is long …isn’t it? :O

    In India in most hospitals they still don’t let the fathers in..I don’t know why..
    thast just unfair and not done ..

    You heard his voice?crying? 🙂

    Yes I did we were all waiting in anticipation !! And it was me first and i m proud of the fact !

    After seeing his bums and his head I was almost like what is this.
    so cute 😀

    I have always felt Dhiren that babies are here only to make us smile..if only for a moment or two..
    so often we grownups forget how to..

    Babies help us remember…..that there is always a reason to smile no matter what..

    Can one ever look at a baby and not smile back? 🙂

    (hugs)))for Hriday..this reminded me of the post of yours on Hriday 🙂

    Happy Birthday little darling:)
    May you always live upto all that your parents dream of for you 🙂


    A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for”

    aha !! that is reallly really lovely ‘di !!!

  8. Indyeah says:

    It was really difficult to have that made… and i aint telling that comment to that baker…. actually bakeress… she is beautiful and sexy tooo !!!! 😀

    So many cakes!
    (they should have a smiley that drools 😀

    the dinosaur one is the cutest 😀
    though the dinosaurs look like a hybrid of cow+dinosaur+dragon+frog(eyes) 😆

    but the cake is cute 😀

    They have this face of Simba made… so i think it should not be a problem !

    How will you get the lion one made? :O

    seriously jokes apart, the bakery people are artists!

    all the cakes are beautiful!

    and yummy!

    you know someday I am sure I will land up somewhere near Mhow and Indore on a trip 😀
    so will come to your home then 🙂

    Sure thing…. !!!! I hope to meet u some day… in the monsoons Mandu is very beautiful so you should come over !!!!

    that apart I will definitely be coming to Delhi !! as it is the gateway to all my dream destinations in Kashmir, Himachal and Uttranchal !!!!

    A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for”
