    June 18, 2004

    I returned yesterday from an amazing week. We had a baby girl, named Jaagruthi, meaning awakening. She was born at 17:01 on Saturday, 12th June 2004. Krithi was admitted around 11 am on Saturday and because of some complications, a c-section had to be performed. Krithi is slowly recovering from all the associated pain & stress and should be discharged tomorrow.

    Jaagruthi is also fine and she is really a total charm. She is quite active generally, when not asleep [admittedly a lot of the time], catching imaginary objects [butterflies?] while lying down etc. It really also looks hilariously cute & stupid when she tries to put her fist into her mouth but because of lack of muscular co-ordination, is unable to, and wails for a while. She's also trying to sleep on her side, something babies dont do when they're barely a week old. So it may have just been a hallucination.

    Being a daughter of a nutrition masters degree holder [not me!], her diet is pretty good: milk, milk, milk and more of it ... every couple of hours !

    She is very sensitive to the lights in the room & makes her unhappiness obvious when a light is suddenly switched on. She also loves the air circulated by the fan and within a minute of the fan being switched off, either by the maid to clean the room or if the electricity goes kaput, she puckers her mouth and begins to cry!

    On Wednesday, she was woken up from her sleep in the afternoon and given polio drops and a couple of injections [BCG vaccine & one to prevent jaundice]. To my utter amazement, she hardly cried for more than a few seconds! It was almost as though she just registered her protest and went back to sleep.

    I'll try and put up a pic or two in a couple of days. Currently I'm really short of sleep.
