Now Back in Action

mum & bubWell, not quite full strength action yet – but yeah, ‘am back at home from the hospital now. With my baby girl Hali in tow. :-)

I’m still in “recovery mode”. It’ll probably take a while to get back to feeling 100%. But, I think I’m heading towards the right direction. And yeah, bub’s doing well too. She needs to gain a bit more weight and such, but we’ll get there…

But yeah, we’re happy and generally in good health. Thanks so much to all who sent in their well wishes. I really, really appreciate it all.

Being a second time mum takes a bit of getting used to. Things seem familiar and different at the same time. But, I’m enjoying it. And, loving (and freaking out at?!) the idea of having a daughter. Since I already have a son, I sort of have an idea about raising boys. But, a girl? It will certainly be interesting to learn what it’s going to be like. Now, I’ve got my very own pigeon pair. :-)

My Work SpaceAnyway, I know that most women need a few months off after giving birth. The thing about running your own business, though, is that there’s a bit more on the line. So yeah, even though it’s only been a little over a week since I got out of surgery, I’m slowly getting back to work. Not complaining, though. The great thing about working for a quasi-virtual company is that the work is generally flexible. Other than the fact that I’m missing out on another b5 team meeting in Toronto (agh – I will meet you guys soon), I’m at least able to continue doing work from where I am, without being restricted to a specific time schedule.

In any case, if I owe any emails or messages to anyone, please give me some time to get back to you. If you need a response urgently, feel free to re-send your email and mark it urgent.

Again, thanks.

    You’re doing really well if you had time to write that much, but then you do have some help there at the moment. Great to know things are going so well for you. I look forward to seeing more photos as your little girl grows. Did your boy look huge when you first saw him again? Don’t worry, reply when you’re ready. Rest up. 😉

    Hello Shai. Congratulations to your new baby. Although my visit to Adelaide was off timing and did not get the chance to meet you, I still have that in my plans for the next visit this year. All the best to you and enjoy! Baby girls are a charmer. I’m sure you’ll love every moment of it.
