Playing Catch

Who knows where he acquired this skill...certainly not from either parent ;)

We've never heard Satya laugh this hard before. NEVER. What a riot :)

Life lesson

Suchitra while at lunch today, passing food between hands:

"When this hand takes from the other, it makes me sad. When this hand gives to the other, it makes me happy."

Budding artist

The letter W...or it could be a Z!

A kite--her first drawing of a concrete item!

Hmm...just noticed both of the above are in purple. Coincidence? I think not :)

Growing like weeds

From their respective 2.5 yr old and 9 month old checkups today:

Suchitra--28 lbs, 37 inches

Satya--19.5 lbs, 29 inches

Both are in 75%+ for height! Though no doubt they'll slow down the growth over the years and end up average like mom and dad :)

While mom was making lunch and baby Satya was taking a catnap this afternoon, Suchitra was busy in the playroom. When I walked in to check on her, she announced: "Look mummy, I wrote an A!"

Good job Chicha!!

Hear me roar!

Suchitra from the backseat:

"When I get a little older I will be a woman.
Yay women!"

(proud smiles from the front seats :)

Some firsts

Suchitra's first poem

"A Tower"
Tata made it
Panda ate it

Suchitra's first joke

"I'm dropping myself off to school" (while pedaling away on her tricycle)

And Satya's first tooth arrived on June 22!

Still trying to get a pic of it...

The siblings enjoy their new outdoor chairs!

Finally a new post

I know, I'm so behind in updates...


  • Suchitra is 2 going on 16. She has full conversations with us, her stuffed animals and herself. She also has rolling-on-the-floor tantrums brought on by...well, just about anything. Currently loves anything art related, and really getting into pretend play ("Dr. Suchi" loves taking care of her sick animals!) Little interest in physical play. Favorite color is still purple. Favorite foods are chocolate, ice cream and mama's sweet tooth all right :)

  • Satya is a whopping 6.5 months old. Still our chill boy, puts himself to sleep, talks/screams up a storm when happy, no interest in rolling over but sits up quite nicely, thank you! Starting to launch himself out of the bumbo...uh oh. Started solid foods last week. Yikes! He's growing up!

    Both kids survived two recent trips to San Diego and Ann Arbor and ended up having a blast. Happy wedding Shail Mama & Anna Auntie! Gonna have to work on getting Suchitra to say "Anna Mami" :) See lots of pics at

    And finally a video. Enjoy!

    2 years old!

    Our chicha turned 2 last week. And boy did she know it.

    She's a fiesty, opinionated nonstop talker who wants do everything "all by yourself". She talks in 5-8 word sentences, but can't quite manage to jump with both feet off of the ground. She knows colors, shapes, all of the letters in the alphabet and numbers to 10, but usually practices selective mutism when asked to identify them in public. She's a compassionate big sister who wants to make sure her baby brother is fed and happy, except when she tries to steal all of his toys. She uses the toilet to go "pee pee" 1-3 times a day, but we're too afraid to let go of her diapers!

    In short, she's our "big" little girl: almost 3 feet tall and 26 lbs! Wow! We threw her a party last week to celebrate.

    Satya, meanwhile, turned 3 months somewhere amidst the above craziness. He's a little over 13.5 lbs, and cooing and smiling nonstop. Still a good sleeper and still a homebody...hates the carseat and doesn't care much for the wrap, but couldn't be happier chilling on a blanket at home!

    We're so thankful for our two happy, healthy little ones! Here's to a new year filled with joy!
