Jiya Sukhwani

Born : July 2, 2007; 2:09 am

At : Fairview Southdale Hospital, Edina, MN

Weight : 6 lbs, 14 oz

Height : 20 inches

Born in the wee hours of the morning, Jiya instantly reminded me and Ashwini of Vansh as soon as we held her in our arms. She looked exactly the same, at least to our eyes :) My father-in-law was excited and evidently delighted to be holding his brand new grand-daughter in his arms. After phone calls to my mom-in-law who was home with Vansh and my parents in India, we called the family पंडितजी to know the auspicious letter for the baby's name. He told us the letters भ and ज. Our minds started working instantly :)

Vansh and my mother-in-law visited us the next morning. Vansh had joy and pride written large on his little face on becoming a big brother. He was scared to hold his little sister in his arms but couldn't stop kissing her when she was in one of our arms. After having shortlisted a few names like Jaina, Juhi, Bhriti and Jiya 9meaning sweetheart), we finally chose the last short and sweet one.
