Today, Vinay reached a new milestone. His head was shaved – signifying cleansing, a fresh future and saying goodbye to his babyhood. Although, having said that, he’ll always be my baby!
I’m quite proud of myself – I managed not to cry. I couldn’t have a breakdown when he was so distressed 😦
Yes, as you could see in the pictures, he wasn’t happy. But, after his bath he calmed down and was fine!
Traditionally, the baby has to wear a yellow ‘kurta’ after his bath and then go to a lunch or dinner hosted by his maternal grandparents. Since my parents aren’t here, we went to my aunt’s house for lunch.
He actually seemed to have forgotten about the events of the morning and had fun. Maybe a little too much fun, because he was exhausted by the time we came home!
It was heartbreaking to see him cry the way he did, but I’m so relieved that he’s over it now and back to his normal self 😀
