The First Raksha-bandhan

rakshabandhan 2015

There isn’t anything sweeter in my life than these two right here. Asha has “taught” Arjun to hold her hand in a handshake and repeat nice to meet you to which Arjun heartly growls .  The two also have a roaring match and tickle time.  And often I will see Asha grab one of her books and read him a story.  Arjun can’t get enough of his big sister.  It truly feels like they have their own thing going already.

Last Saturday was Rakshabandhan and this being the first for Asha and Arjun, I couldn’t wait to celebrate. But our movers didn’t finish unloading till 10pm that day and all the chaos left little time to sit together and talk about the festival.  Needless to say, the first thing we did the next morning once everyone was showered and refreshed was have Asha tie a Rakhee on Arjun’s wrist and in return she got a small present.  Arjun for his part cried most of the time and couldn’t wait to get out of the chair. As their mama, I wish them the best in life, but above all, I wish that the two will be each other’s best friend and support.  I can’t wait to see them grow together.

We missed the celebrationg in Charlotte this year, but I hope to make it up to all my cousin brothers when I see them in a few days. Love you all! And here are some pictures from our little ceremony.
