Got milk?

So we went to the hospital yesterday for Xena's surgery follow-up. After we had seen the surgeon, we dropped by the special care nursery to pick up the last batch of frozen breast milk (some 20 bottles) that we had delivered while Xena was there and that she had not consumed. From there, we went to the ICA to sort out Xena's immigration status (yep, she is still considered a social visitor until she gets a passport/IC).

Viv was in the queue and I was sitting in the waiting area when Xena started crying. I had got a bottle of milk for her, but I was finding it a bit hard to open the milk bag while holding her. Seeing my predicament, a lady who was just leaving, offered to open the bag and take out the bottle. She opened it, handed me the bottle, and left. But not before giving the strangest look, first to me, and then to Xena. Oh well, I thought, she is really tiny, and sometimes people do give us strange looks.

It was only when I was putting the bottle back that I realised what had happened.

She has seen the 20 bottles of milk at the bottom of the bag.

Somewhere, a lady is probably blogging about the strange woman she met at the ICA who seriously overestimates her tiny baby's appetite.

May I just say I have EXTREME supply envy! When Angad was born I had the hardest time maintaining even a barely adequate stash of milk for one day. What's the secret of your success, bhai?

Frozen milk == ice cream. Well, if it is sweet enough. Nothing sweeter than Mom's. 20 units of ice cream for Xena - that's one cool baby :)

I just noticed, its the 15th of June and we already have 10 posts from you :). I am reminded of the time in feb/ mar when I commented that I hope the reason u are not blogging much is because you have something more interesting happening in life. Back then I could have never guessed all that you actually went through, but it is so good to have you back (with Xena)
