Little guy loves to move....

Baby Anand loves to move a lot. He is especially active between 6:30 and 7:30...the time when I am in the train on the way to work. Like clock work he wakes up 6:25 and makes sure I know that he is up! I only hope he sticks with this schedule when he is born.
He also loves to move a lot when everything is quite in the nights. He doesn't usually stick with schedule at nights. When everything is quite, he loves to love around. I talk to him sometime and at other times when I am too tired, I just put my hand on my tummy and massage him.

This afternoon Megu and I spoke to him for along time. Megha loved interacting with him. She asked him if he wants milk or water and thought that pouring water on my tummy would give the baby water :)!
She even read Mickey Mouse club house Farmer Mickey stories to him. He seemed to enjoy all this attention quite a bit. He moved around for a while and fell asleep after about 30 minutes. Megha sure will make an awesome big sister. She even said he poked him :)

He is almost pound now and is as big as a spaghetti squash. Needless to say, I am more tired than normal. The carpal tunnel syndrome kicked in a lot sooner this time, compared to the last time.

Megha had fun this Easter. She made quite a few crafts at the daycare that involved egg painting, drawing and fun with colors. I did not take pictures of all the crafts but here is one cute one, a chicken made out of her feet :)

Here she is being all silly being a bunny.

Dressed up for the Easter party at the daycare. She also had pancakes at the daycare that looked just like bunny :)

This morning I hid a few eggs for the easter egg hunt. I couldnt really organize anything outdoors, unlike last year as we had a lot of snow last night.
We also missed the easter egg hunt at downtown Milton. She still had a little fun at home this evening for all her eggs in our home though :)
Here is her basket filled with chocolate eggs and treats.

Maple Syrup Farm Visit

As is our yearly tradition, we took Megha to the Maple Syrup farm this year too. This was also in March, last month. We went to Richardson's Farm, about and hour and half hours drive from where we live.

The Farm had a sugar bush where maple syrup is made and we learned a bit about how the maple syrup is made (which I promptly forgot). The horse driven wagon took us to the sugar bush. Megha was very excited. It was cold, wet and windy but that didnt stop the girl from jumping in joy when she saw the horse driven wagon.

The highlight of the trip was the petting barn where a few animals were waiting for the kids to go talk to them. Megha of course was delighted when she saw the animals.
 Here she is petting the Horse named Charlie.

Dad and Megha..

Here she is with the chickens. She also touched the eggs the chickens laid. She held a bunny rabbit and pet her too. She remembered the bunnies from Suresh Tatha's yard in Kothagudem.

Her favorite farm animal of all time, cow.
We met a few kind people from that village who invited us over for lunch. Its a shame we couldnt make it.

Disney on Ice, Frozen

Last month, Megha and I went to Disney on Ice, Frozen show in Rogers Center. Anand couldnt make it as he was working. Megha and I were very excited as we love Frozen movie a lot. A friend of mine joined along with her daughter as it was so much fun watching the kids play.

Here is Megha dressed up as Queen Elsa. I bought the kids slush.
The stage before the show began.

Megha and I couldnt wait for the show to begin!

Show in progress. I made hot dogs and french fries and took them for lunch.

Baby movement!

Today I felt the baby move for the very first time! It's a wonder how nature works.
I am so guilty. I hardly write anything anymore.
