Nandini got her conscious back after an hour. She was on hospital bed and Manik was sitting beside her on stool , clasping her hand.
He passed her a smile and leaned forward to kiss her forehead. “How are you ?” He asked concernedly.
“Hubby , I’m fine. Where is our chotu baby ? Is it a boy or a girl ?” She asked excitedly and Manik was just smiling at her.
“Chotu Baby girl.” He told her and gently kissed her hand.
“Wow.. , baby girl. Hubby , I want to meet her.” She shouted in excitement. Manik stood up and helped Nandini to sit with support of pillows. Then he went to another side of the bed where their princess was sleeping in the cradle , wrapped in the white cloth. Manik picked her in his arms carefully and she yawned in sleep. Manik kissed her forehead. Nandini was looking at them in excitement.
Manik gave her to Nandini. She cradled her in her arms and few tears tickled down from her eyes. It was a blissful moment for her. She had been waiting for this day since so long and finally , her chotu was in her arms , in front of her eyes. She herself started crying like a small baby , staring at her.
“Hey.. baby , why are you crying ?” Manik asked cupping her face and wiped her tears.
“She is finally with us , hubby. I can’t believe. I’m so happy.” She said while crying and started kissing all over her face. Chotu baby woke up and stared at her mumma cutely first and then she moved her eyes toward her father.
“Hi , my chotu baby , my princess.” Nandini whispered , caressing her nose with her tiny nose. Manik smiled at them.
“Hubby , she is saying hi to me.” Nandini shouted joyfully as chotu baby held her finger with her tiny hand.
“Hello , chotu baby.” Manik caressed her face and she instantly moved her leg toward him.
“Manik , she kicked like she used to kick inside me.” Nandini laughed loudly as she responded to her father by moving her leg. Manik chuckled and kissed her feet after bending down.
“She slept again , hubby.” She said disappointedly.
“She is so beautiful like an angel. Hubby , do you like the name , angel ?” She asked excitedly.
“Wow baby , I loved this name. Our angel.” He gently kissed his daughter’s forehead and then her wife’s forehead.
“Thank you , baby. It because of you , today our daughter is with us. Thank you so much..” he thanked her touching his face with her.
“Hubby , it because of you , our chotu baby is with us because you are my strength. It wouldn’t be possible without you. So , thank you for always being there for me. You are the best husband of this world and I love you a lot.” She confessed and pecked his lips.
“No , baby. It happened because of you.”
Before Nandini could said something, Angel started crying , moving her hands and legs in her arms.
“Oh my angel. Sh.. , mumma can’t see you in tears , stop crying.” Nandini swung her gently and tried to soothe her. She fell asleep with in a few seconds and her hand remained in the air only.
“She is so cute.” Manik smiled and put her hands down.
“Cute like me..” Nandini winked at Manik and he chuckled.
“Yes, cute like you.” He kissed her nose and she grinned.
“How are you feeling , Nandini ?” Doctor asked , entering into the room with nurse. Manan smiled at her.
“I’m feeling so good. Now, I just can’t wait to hear mumma.” She said excitedly and they both chuckled.
“We have to take the baby for few tests. Can we ?” Doctor asked before taking the angel.
“But be careful.” Nandini warned her , giving angel to Doctor.
“I’m a Doctor, Nandini. Don’t worry.” Doctor assured her and gave angel to nurse.
“I just come.” Doctor went out , leaving Manan alone.
“Hubby.. “ she called him , opening her arms and Manik understood , what she wanted from him. Manik smiled at her and hugged her tightly after bending down. She hugged him back , encircling her arms around his neck. After breaking the hug , he captured her lips and kissed her lovingly and gently. He was thanking her for the precious gift through this kiss.
“I love you , baby.” He whispered after breaking the kiss.
“Hubby , I have become a mother , now. So , stop calling me baby. It’s doesn’t look good.”
“No , my baby will always remain baby. I’m gonna call you baby always.” He pulled her cheeks and she giggled, she wanted to hear this only. Manik kissed her cheeks and then pecked her lips.
Angel was sleeping in the cradle when Mukti came to meet her with abhi , leaving Arjun (their son) with Navya at home.
Angel woke up and frowned, moving her eyebrows closer together and deep line appeared on her forehead , as Mukti picked her up. It was like she was saying to Mukti “Put me down and let me sleep peacefully.”
Abhi started laughing loudly, holding his stomach. “Manik , I’m sure , she will be like you. Look , she started showing her anger to us from now only.”
Nandini giggled and Manik glared at him.
“Aww.. , she is damn cute.” Mukti kissed her forehead and rubbed her nose with her.
“I’m happy , if she will be like my hubby. I don’t have any problem.” She said cheerfully.
Angel started crying and Mukti rocked her back and forth but she cried more. “Sweetie, I think , she is hungry.” Mukti understood because she had a one month experience now.
“Give her to me , I will see.” Manik said holding angel in his arms.
“Is my angel hungry ?” Manik asked from angel , raising his eyebrows. She cried more , moving her hands and legs and closing her tightly.
“We are going outside.” Abhi said and went outside with Mukti.
“Baby , you have to feed her.” Manik said walking toward Nandini with angel.
Nandini opened the side zip of her gown and took her breast out. “Give her to me , then.”
Manik carefully gave angel to her. She held her carefully in her arms and brought her mouth closer to her breast. Angel instantly started sucking her nipple , keeping her tiny hand on her breast. Nandini smiled blissfully and kissed her head after leaning down. Manik smiled too , admiring them. Nandini grinned, looking at Manik. He bent down and kissed her forehead. She smiled , closing her eyes. Feeding her daughter is a blissful moment for every mother.
