Globe Trotting and New Beginnings

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

Sara is 10 months old… where has time gone? We are on the first birthday countdown and I don’t know how I feel about it… I love watching Sara grow and these last 3-4 months have been SO much fun but at the same time I miss her when she was a little teeny tiny cuddle bug.

Here is our (late) update 🙂

At 10 months, Sara

  • can crawl like a champ! Put her down and off she goes! 
  • can eat finger foods (puffs, blueberries, pieces of fruit, pieces of french toast)
  • is a picky eater… sigh! She eats what she likes and spits out anything she doesn’t. You can’t sneak in a bite of anything that she doesn’t like! 
  • is a screamer! You can’t make her do anything she doesn’t want to. She is a VERY strong willed baby! 
  • is now exploring everything! She likes to play with everything except her toys. iPhone, tv remote, apple tv remote. There was a week where we lost all the remotes in our house!
  • can pull herself up and stand and sometimes will take a step but she knows she can get to it fast if she crawls so just sits down and speeds off.
  • loves her friend Audrey except does’t know how to play with her yet. 
  • Can wave bye and give high 5’s
  • gives wet slobbery kisses.
  • loves popsicles (strawberry, kiwi, orange)
  • is obsessed with cats and dogs. She has been training hard on her crawl speed up so she can catch up to Stoli and “pet” him.

Needless to say, she continues to amaze me each day and can melt my heart with a quick flash of her toothless smile 🙂

Here are some pics

Sara crawled under the kitchen table and stood up and didn’t know how to come out!

And there’s that toothless smile that melts my heart…




You are 5 months old. How is this possible? Just a few months back you were in my tummy twisting and turning in the middle of the night.

I feel such immense love for you that I cannot explain. I find everything you do so so cute. I think it is safe to say that you have me wrapped around your little finger!

You are developing such a personality!

Your crocodile tears – the way you cough asking to be picked up. At first we actually thought you had a cough but we soon caught on! 🙂

Your dad says that you have learned from the best (me!) 😛

The big big smiles you give your Nana, Nani, Daddy and me to brighten up our days.

You now splash water when you get into the tub during bathtime and then give a big smile.

Your giggles make us  drop whatever we are doing and come running…

When you go for a walk in your ergo, you get super silent and just want to watch the trees and the people.

The way you always fall asleep in the ergo just when we are 1 block away from home! So whoever is carrying you has to go for another walk or keep wearing you while you take a mini nap.

The way you sing/talk “aah aah aah” continuously without stopping! 🙂

If we give you our fingers you hold them and pull yourself up

You know when you want something and you KNOW when you don’t!

Not too long ago, you were just a little newborn that slept, ate and pooped and now you are a little person. I know the fun is just beginning and honestly I can’t wait!

Happy New Year to Everyone!!

I know I am super-duper late with this post, just been really really busy! But hey better late than never right?

So here are the 10 things that made me smile in December –

  1. We went to see the Roger Waters concert. This was the BEST concert I have EVER been to! Everything was just amazing.
  2. Chiku and I went to see the Black Swan. Natalie Portman has acted really well but I didn’t quite get the movie entirely…. It was fun nonetheless.
  3. Sameer and Zejfa came to visit us and we had a great time with them. The weekend was wayyy too short and I wish we all lived closer!
  4. Holiday parties galore! Love this time of the year!
  5. Chiku and I decided to brave the crowds and go shopping at the outlets the day before Christmas, but it wasn’t bad at all. We shopped and shopped and shopped like crazy! LOVED the amazing deals!
  6. Sahir did his final big run before the half marathon – 10 miles right before our vacation! SO proud of him!
  7. Meeting up with Hitomi, Tanbir and Maya in NYC. Love mah peeps!
  8. Braving the crazy NYC blizzard and making it to our train with Sahir, Shekhar and Lubna. Glad we weren’t flying since all flights out of NY were cancelled but trains were just delayed 🙂
  9. Our fun vacation in Montreal where Linken came to meet us. After which we headed to Quebec City for a few days. It was the perfect vacation where we probably ate 8 meals a day and slept a good 12 hrs every day 🙂
  10. A great low key and fun New Years Eve with amazing friends, good music and the PERFECT Shawarma at the end of the night!!

    Happy New Year!!!
