Joy's 11th month birthday!!!

Ok!! so I have been a horrible mom.... Joy's 11th month birthday came and went and the husband and I just about managed to hug and kiss him before running off to work....

I came home to find.. a lil package dropped off by his beloved D'shona.... a set of 5 sleeveless vests in various colours.... and a Fisher Price toy..... and His Mamu had bought him a huge drum..... I smiled when I saw all this.... ok!! so we didn't get him anything.... but others remembered.....

Joy has been happily dragging his drum all over the house.... and making the most amazing racket... so much so that over the weekend I had to confiscate the drum sticks... not so much because of the noise... but the fear of him hitting himself....
Anyways.... he has suddenly takena liking for sitting on his drum.. as in using it as a stool... lol.. looks quite cool and cute as well...( I would have taken some pics and uploaded them... but we are having serious Connectivity problems... even the husbands Lap top is playing up..so .. I shall post them as soon as I can.
I finally managed to open my net today and have found an email from Joys Nammi... with her monthly birthday poem....
here it is ......

Little Joy our life’s big exlixir

You’ve given us 11 months of happiness & laughter

Waiting impatiently to see you lite & blow your first candle

With it Nammi & Dadu would make endless wishes for their little bundle

- Be a man strong like Mother Earth and big hearted like the Sky

- May the Fire within help to ignite & inspire you always to a new high

- Let the beautiful Wind blow favourably & help you keep smiling

- Like the Water (and your Father!) remain cool, severe and forever progressing!


Anyways...
am now going nuts organising Joy's first birthday party.... we want to do it ona smaller scale.... as it is we have had two huge parties for everyone in both Delhi and Kolkata.... and everyone has wished us and loaded us with gifts and useful stuff.. for Joy.... its embarrassing to accept gifts again in such quick succession.... so we are only calling close family... and friends and cousins with kids..
we have 39 adults and 11 kids.... I know its not a small number.... but compared to our usualy dos it is .....
Went and booked the venue yesterday..... so at least that is done...
Anyways.... my darling baby.. happy 11th month birthday.... belated though it is...
the next one will be for your first year... and after this I shall only refer to your age in terms of years ....my gosh is time flying....

Organising birthday parties, the food, the dos, the themes, the return gifts..all off it is quite a tiring job!

But in the end all just works out good nad you feel so happy looking back at what aspeldnind job you did and how well the party went!

Don't worry. You will do a great job of it and Job will have a great 1st birthday party! make sure you get someone to click pictures unlike us who just forgot about the pictures and got busy mingling with the guests. Its then we realsied we should have hired a photographer. *sigh* great ideas always come to me late :P
