Proud Auntie

I am very proud to say that I am an auntie!

Baby Isla was born on October 31st and is a beautiful baby girl. I had the amazing pleasure of being by my sister's side during Isla's delivery and this is something that I'll never forget. Watching little Isla take her first breaths in the world was momentous. Now my little niece is an eating and pooping machine!

Being around Isla has really made me realize that in only 3-4 months, we too will have a little one to swoon over. Holy moly, only 3-4 more months - wow! Time is flying by and November, December and January will be jam-packed months for us. Not only are we moving in December but we will be going through IVF again here in the states. As I get older I'm producing fewer eggs so we think it's best to freeze embryos in case we ever want/can try again. We met with our local fertility doctor this past Friday and the wheels are now in motion. If all goes as planned, we'll have another round of IVF under our belt before leaving for India.

Next step in our preparations for returning to Mumbai is finding and reserving our hotel.  We favor the Novotel because we loved it so much, but we're also researching other options as well.


  1. Awwwww - she is good practice for your baby or babies - they are coming!

  2. Please send our congrats to your sister. Also, great way to get you both even more excited for your new little one to come! Yes, can you believe it, it's happening. Glad you could experience the whole thing with her. It's amazing! Enjoy the holidays!
