Preparing, waiting

We've picked up quite a few things to go in the baby's room. Inspite of warnings from the families (that it would be bad luck to buy too many things before the baby actually arrives), we've done a fair bit of shopping in the spirit of "being prepared"; most of it will get delivered closer to the due date. We'll probably leave decorating the nursery for the last month. Doesn't mean I haven't started planning though.

Colourful musings; soft tender tones;
Some blue, some green, some red,
There is the pram; there'll be the baby's bed,

There we sit as we watch him play;
We could change this, get that new,

Trying our best to keep,
A promise of love; that we've made to you :)

PS: I do realise that my blog posts have been getting overly maternal these days :)

Have you picked a 'theme' that goes with certain characters, etc.?

Beautiful lines, Radha.

I remember that my mom said the same thing when my sister was expecting my niece!

I love the little clothes, they are so cute. Even though my nephew is now four, I still venture into the babies section and go "awww" at those tiny, cute clothes.

How have you been, Radha? Its been a long time.. Your poem made me go back in time, wistfully longing for those days I will never get back again. Good luck with your preparations :)

The anticipation is an experience by itself. Nicely written lines. Good luck with the 'planning' :)
