Back again

We are back from the long break. This was a long leave and we got to spend 3 months in India. But this didnt make it any relaxing. In fact this holiday was more hectic. We had three engagements, one house warming function and two baby showers. In all, we were kept pretty busy all three months.

Now for updates about the kids.
Big Sis has started her K1 (LKG) classes. She is able to cope inspite of losing a month of classes. She has learnt a lot of new words in Tamil. She has learnt not to ask "Yenga poreenga" (Where are you going?) when someone leaves the house. Instead she asks "Yenga iruthu varuveenga?" (Where will you be coming from?). Have enrolled her in the 'I Can Read' programme and 'Carnatic Vocal' classes.

The Little one has rolled over and is moving in circles. He loves shouting at the top of his voice for no reason at all. He is overall a happy baby who seldon cries (Anti-jinx, Anti-jinx). He has a funny way of sleeping. Always sleeps on his sides with his head thrown back. Almost like the mirror image of 'S'. Even if we move him, he is back to his position within a few minutes. I'm still unable to tell who he resembles. Everyone has their own opinion, but each one is different.

Big Sis loves the little one to nuts. She has already planned how she would play with him as he grows up. Each stage has a different game/toy. She likes to show off her brother. When we have visitors, she rattles off his achievements...some of which are fictious :). The little one too knows his sister from others. He lights up the moment he hears her voice.

Today, DH and me forgot it was valentine's day and were going about doing the regular jobs. When we were having our breakfast Big Sis comes along and gives a big hug and a kiss shouting "Happy Valentine's Day". Now, where on earth did she learn that? It was then, we realised it was Valentine's day and with a sheepish grin wished each other. So that's how Romantic we have become :))

Welcome back PVS. Good to see the updates.

V Day - After 2 kids, its quite natural to let that slip by. :)

well, we had not celebrated V day even before...just wished each other. thats all. :)

For us the First day we met, our engagement day, the wedding day and a few other special days had more meanings.
