Having a child is riddled with pain and apprehensions, yet it is a unparalleled feeling. The moment when Aarav and Arnav came into this world; was full of exhilaration and jubilation. Ashutosh and Nancy became the proud parents of adorable twins on 25th July, 2014. Their 1st birthday was splendidly celebrated last year. Aarav and Arnav are quite a handful, but an immense source of pleasure for their parents. The feeling when you hold your child for the first time is indescribable, and so it was for Ashutosh and Nancy. It felt like they had received a bonus gift in the form of these two little ones. Both the children are quite attached to their grandfather, and amuse everyone with their antics. Arnav has a smiling-countenance and he is very friendly. He always has this intermittent smile on his face. On the other hand, Aarav is very naughty and stubborn. Both of them are very adorable and never cease to amuse. There are some beautiful moments that bring a smile to the lucky parents’ faces, whenever they think about them. Nancy recalls one such moment when she asked Aarav to kiss her. Aarav was only 9 months old at that time. Naughty Aarav not only kissed, but also hugged his loving mother. (What a loving gesture! 😉 ) This was a really touching moment for Nancy, who was overwhelmed by her son’s love for her. On another occasion, when Arnav was just 5 months old, his parents were clicking a family selfie and his face lit up with a beautiful smile. (I must say, he is quite a celebrity now! 😉 )
When you smile, the days get sunny and crisp,
When you chuckle and clench my fingers in your fist,
Your naughty gaze, the deep gurgles you make,
are soothing like a quiet meadow and a solitary lake.
Ashutosh and Nancy decided to share their happiness with everyone, by celebrating their kids’ 1st birthday grandly. The couple had shifted to Bangalore from Delhi, a place they knew very little about. So, planning was a huge hassle. They had to go through several websites to plan the event perfectly.
After going through a lot of websites, visiting lots of hotels and on the recommendation of a few friends, the couple settled on Octave Hotel, located in Sarjapur, as the venue. (the perfect venue in Bangalore to celebrate your kid’s 1st birthday) As the guests were mainly from the North, so they kept in mind a menu that would cater to their tastes; Octave Hotel proved to be the perfect solution. The food was excellent and everyone was quite happy with the arrangements.
Octave Hotel also provided for a photographer for the occasion. The pictures from the occasion are mesmerizing and the twins look charming and adorable. See for yourself.
Shopping was a difficult task as they were looking for the same dress for both the brothers. Even after visiting a lot of malls like the Phoenix Mall and the Forum Mall, they couldn’t find anything suitable for the occasion. Eventually, they found the right attire from ‘Little Boss’ located in HSR Layout, Sector 1. For the perfect shoes, they had to look around a lot until they found the matching pair in ‘Next’.
The beautiful and delicious cake was from ‘Just Bake’ in HSR Layout.
The event proved to be an instant hit. Everyone enjoyed a lot and the twins were in a playful mood. I hope the lovely twins keep amusing everyone with their playful antics. Keep smiling. Keep loving. <3 <3
