Expect More In This Year of the Dragon…

So I got married and we are expecting our first child this December. Honestly, this sudden change of new phase in my life is giving jitters. I can only do my best. The preparation for the arrival of a newborn is more crucial than our own wedding…  we realise we need so much more as we go along the list…. it’s good to have the father more excited and enthusiatic than the mom. Hence preparation starts now !
