Fun at the Festival

This morning Priya and I joined the Peterson family at a Global Arts Festival put on by one of the churches in town. We had a wonderful time making crafts, getting faces painted, watching theatrical and dance performances and looking at arts and crafts from around the world. Our times with the Peterson family are always special and this was no exception!The girls were making fingerprint bookmarks...
Priya was immediately drawn to the purple stamp pad - her favorite color...
Some fun ethnic pics and poses...

I love Priya's little hands poking out with her face. Too cute...

Face painting time!



All of the girls ended up getting butterflies painted on their faces. Beautiful, aren't they? :)

A Glee Fan? Or A Child of the 80's?

Priya loves music and she loves to dance! A few days ago I turned on the TV to watch the end of a Glee episode. Priya immediately took to the song that was playing (could she be a fan of the 80's?!) and kept asking me to play it over and over and over again. She continues to ask me regularly to play the video so that she can sing and dance to it again. So for all you Glee fans out there and/or fans of the 80's, we hope you enjoy Priya's performance!

Swimming Pool


The weather has really been warming up around here and Priya finally had the chance to use her little pool and Grammy and Papa's house. She squealed with delight and was overjoyed to be able to go swimming again!

Priya got a little silly with her watering can and Papa took the brunt of it. But I'm sure you'll laugh along just as we did... :)

First Ultrasound Pics! :)

Ashish and I had the pleasure of seeing little Baby Christian for the first time on Friday (May 7). It was amazing to see tiny legs and arms moving about and to see the heart beating. It's definitely becoming more real and our excitement and anticipation are growing. Tomorrow I'll be at 12 weeks. Only 27 weeks to go... ;)

Baby's due date is November 23, but since I'll be having a c-section it looks like he or she will enter the world about a week earlier (unless I go into labor early of course like I did with Priya). November 16 would be special as that is my mom's birthday, Ashish's parents' anniversary and Arpit and Binal's (Ashish's brother and SIL) anniversary as well . November 18 would be another great day too, right Greg? ;)

The ultrasound pics are a bit blurry, but Baby Christian is hanging out upside-down and his/her arms and legs are pointing to the right. Our doctor had a big screen in the ultrasound room so we got to see the baby much bigger. Ahhh...what a gift to be able to have a small window inside to catch a glimpse of what is going on in there... :)
