Baby Shower...For Haidee with Love

Today is a very special day for a very special person. Today is Haidee’s virtual baby shower hosted by the wonderful Athena from A Field of Dreams. Haidee (from Maybe Baby... (or Maybe the Loony Bin?) is expecting her first child in July. A fellow IFer who experienced 3 years of infertility and 3 cycles of IVF will finally welcome her son.
This post is my gift for Haidee. We in India don’t really have baby showers so forgive me if this sounds a little off.

Congratulations Haidee. I wondered what I could give you to make this day memorable and I decided to go India...

How about a little dress for the little prince printed with the holiest motif existing in Hinduism?

I also found this adorable little toy Ganesha to keep your boy company and help him sleep through the night  

For you and your DH, I got this beautiful dress...sure to make you feel like royalty.

Finally, an open invitation to visit India, be my guest and explore my beautiful with your family.

These are mere symbols (But if you do accept my invitation to visit India, I promise you the time of your life). Symbols of our happiness, we are so happy – for you. I wish you and your family all the happiness in the world. 

I want to share a poem with you. It’s an English translation of a poem written by Rabindra Nath Tagore (Nobel Prize Winning Bengali Poet)
Baby’s World
I wish I could take a quiet corner in the heart of my baby's very
own world.
I know it has stars that talk to him, and a sky that stoops
down to his face to amuse him with its silly clouds and rainbows.
Those who make believe to be dumb, and look as if they never
could move, come creeping to his window with their stories and with
trays crowded with bright toys.
I wish I could travel by the road that crosses baby's mind,
and out beyond all bounds;
Where messengers run errands for no cause between the kingdoms
of kings of no history;
Where Reason makes kites of her laws and flies them, the Truth
sets Fact free from its fetters.
