January 2010


Weekend was fun with our friends. 10 of us packed and started to spend weekend @ Blue Ridge cabins. Since the weather wasn’t suited for hiking or other outdoor activities, our plan was just to cook, eat & play. Loaded with the raw materials needed for cooking, right from Salt, Sugar till the masala powders needed for our Indian cooking we started off from our place 2.5 hrs beyond our target time (as always) 😀 I was all set for our getaway but my only fear being able to reach the cabin atleast before 9PM so that I can feed my LO her dinner. But sensing the late start I fed her dinner before we started. Clever-me! Like our earlier cabin vacation, this time also we had spooky-eerie night time search. The road, as per no-mile-marker-directions-we-got, which we thought will end in couple of miles didn’t end even after 10 miles & we thought we were off-way. But later found out that we still have to drive some more and finally found our cabin @ 10 30 PM.
Surprisingly, both Shravan & Shriya were awake as soon as we stopped @ our cabin and once we entered n settled down, they were active n playing :-O It got us like couple of hours to put them to bed and it was our game time until 5AM 🙂

Saturday dawned @ 9 AM and it was fun making Pancakes, Omlette, Toasted Bread with jelly for breakfast. After a hefty breakfast, we all settled down to play Literature while the kiddos dozed-off completely for hour and half after heavy breakfast 😛 Then its lunch time and hot-tub time for the guys. The kids were playing and running hither n thither. Shriya got used to all our friends n was gleefully playing. Mom & Dad, needless to say enjoyed the toothless smile 🙂 Again when the little ones dozed off after lunch, we all set in for a game of Monopoly 🙂 Shriya tried hard to tear down the Taboo cards with her mouth but couldn’t succeed. Hahaha it was funny to see her expression everytime when she failed to tear the Taboo card, well she thought she can chew it to pieces like she usually does with the Bounty or some mag pages 😛

The trip was overall joyful for us with our friends & with our LO and I’m sure Shriya enjoyed it as well 🙂

Yea, the LO s teething!!! She has this habit of biting/chewing our fingers or the lace from my winter fleece or wateve she can grab hold on to. And going by her habit, this Sat morn, my DH discovered a sharp bite when she had his finger 😛 and was loudly saying that she is starting to get her 1st tooth 🙂 Yayyy

Ah, atlast Daddy is happy that there’s someone in the household who can help him with. Hehehe yes mommy doesn’t like to do, (errrr read it as ‘doesn’t know to’ :-P) handyman stuffs. But yea, dad is pretty handy most of the times 🙂 And guess who helped him with changing oven bulb? YES, it’s Shriya 😀
LOL, yes, when daddy was trying to change the bulb in the oven, this tiny one crawled and walked and stood beside him, with one hand holding the oven door, other hand on the tray inside, she was peeking into the oven to check whether dad has fixed the lights correctly or not. Whattaaa brainy kid! 🙂

Yipeeeeeeeee Shriya is 9 months old and gets naughter day by day. Dad is taking the sweetie-pie for a regular 9th month visit with her Ped and he will be asking about her cold. I know, its tough on her and she’s got this cold since this Jan 1st. Hope she gets better soon.

Yes, being sleepless kills!!! Ive heard many babies start sleeping through the night from their 4th month. But this tiny lil brat, NO, is not sleeping through the night 😐 . She’s got this cold and poor thing is unable to sleep in the night and as a result we end up sleepless 😐 Hmmppphhhhhhh
No donuts for guessing 😐 , ah, yes, mommy is awake since 3 30AM and daddy was awake until 3 30 AM 😦

I’m looking for the day when Shriya starts to sleep throughout the night 😦

Omigosh…this little one cannot stay calm n quiet in one place, she just wants to move and explore and research and what not.
The pictures are a proof 🙂

Ahhh the poor thing is getting sick since this New Year start 😦 Sigh…Not a good start for the LO health-wise, perhaps. I hope n pray that she gets better soon.

Jan 5th eve, Tue, I noticed a red bump in her Diaper area and applied Desitin cream before her bed time and Wed morn when I changed her, I found no bumps and was happy. But Wed eve, the LO looked very dull and when I changed her diaper, her diaper area was very very reddish and she screamed when I touched it to wipe it clean. Again I applied Desitin thinking, it will be alrite tomo morning. But Thur morn, it was still the same and I couldn’t see my daughter cry and scream in pain. So my DH took her immediately to her Ped and later discovered that she has Peri-anal Strep dermatitis. Poor thing, suffered a lot with this fungal infection.
And I was in no condition to send her to the sitter again and I took care of her while I was working from home. As she was put in antibiotics, she pooped a lot number of times, and everytime I try to clean her, she was screaming n withering in pain. I cried seeing her cry 😦 & prayed to God to help her. And for most part of the day, I left her without diaper and put on her diaper before feeding her (coz then I know that she will poop immediately ;-)) Friday, I couldn’t go to work coz of the snow & ice on the roads, and I was happy that I can take care of her one more day and helped her to releive of her pain by frequent cleaning and changing her and by the weekend, I could see that her reddish spots were much decreased and she was feeling much better 🙂 Thank God !!!

But one thing that still bothers me is her cold, which hasn’t reduced at all. I hope she gets better soon.
Love ya baby
