Ashish's Surprise

Today was an exciting day for Ashish - after 4 1/2 years he got his braces off!!! Our camera is on the fritz so none of the pictures I tried to take turned out, but for some reason the video portion did work. So here is a small glimpse of his new smile.

Diaper Survey - Calling All Moms!

Moms - I need your help! I'm wondering if you'd be willing to share your experience with different brands of diapers. I've been using Target brand for most of Priya's diapering needs (with the exception of when she was first born and everything I tried leaked with the exception of Pampers).

Priya weighs about 17 lbs now and has been in size 3 for several months. This size is supposed to fit 16-28 lbs. But we have been having problems with leaking during the past few weeks. Almost every morning when she wakes up she is wet around the tops of the diaper (even when I double diaper her!). This morning after only wearing a diaper for 30 min I could see little trickles going down her leg - and the diaper was on right! I'm thinking about switching brands but I'm sad to do this for financial reasons.

Can you give me your thoughts on other brands you have tried and whether you liked or disliked them? Or is this a size issue? It's hard to imagine her in a size 4 when she's only 17 lbs. Thanks!!!

Lots of Play = Good Quality Sleep!

Priya and Ashish enjoyed some fun play time this weekend. Her toy of choice wasn't a contraption with lots of bells and whistles but, yep, you guessed it, a simple cardboard box. She had a wonderful time climbing in and out of it, carrying it around & pushing it across the room.

All of that fun playing made for some really deep sleep for our little monkey (finally - after about 2 weeks battling sleep - Priya is finally back on track and is her old self again). When checking on her at night we regularly find her with half of her body hanging out of her crib. Well, maybe not half... Thank goodness for those bars that keep her secure!

Election Day

Today was an important day for my hubby!  Ashish voted for the first time as a US Citizen and was very excited about this new opportunity to have a voice in our country!  Ashish proudly became a US Citizen last February.  Priya wanted to get in on the action too...

Priya is missing her grandparents... you think Grammy & Grandpa will mind if I play their piano?It's just not as much fun without Grammy and Grandpa. I wish you were here (and so does Drew).

Hehe - just because you're not here doesn't mean I can avoid mischief altogether!
