First things first - Happy Happy happy 7th month birthday to my lil A. She is such a warrior. She was a little under the weather and yet never cried or fussed. Her achievements include doing some onshore swimming and doing it pretty fast; she eats pretty well; she is a talker and I believe she said 'Dada'. She can almost sit up by herself and can do an awesome push up! You go girl! 
I am linking up with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom to gather up my scattered thoughts. 

Thursday Thoughts

I am thinking about how my family came together and pulled though this past week. BK, his sister and BIL came together, put aside work, normal routine, sleep and comfort to work around each of their schedules for a small family medical emergency starting last weekend. I had no doubt that all of us would do just that but to see it in action was extremely heartwarming. I just love Sibling Love and it's nice. Looking ahead I know we are all going to be fine... in life. Above all, I love my little ladies for being so resilient with absentee parent, late nights, early mornings and leftovers. Little kids teach us so much. 

Friends! After about 13 years and some intermittent efforts at staying in touch, a handful from the ISK batch of 1999 has come together virtually and stays in touch everyday now. What would we do without you Geet, whose brainchild this has been? Thank you WhatsApp for being easy and free (for the rest, not for me though). 

I usually write at my own pace and do not want to be pressurized into blogging for the sake of just that. So when my post 51 Life Tips for my Daughters gathered some steam and I got some loving, I realized that I really love blogging and even more I love making lists. 

A friend of mine Rima started her blog recently - Rima's Reflections and I am so pleased. So pleased that I am smiling like this.

That reminds me of B.Meowsic which I had promised to get lil O. But she has way too many toys.

I think this is so so so cool and want to try this out. 

How To Make Fairies In A Jar 
1. Cut a glow stick and shake the contents into a jar. 
2. Add diamond glitter 
3. Seal the top 
4. Shake hard
I met Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess  couple days ago and I am still gushing! 

I have totally fallen off the wagon 
  • with my postpartum weightloss plan - I was doing so well. Sigh!
  • with watching all my sit-coms and now I have no clue what's happening on TV. I will miss The Office the most. 
  • with taking pictures of lil A. She is such a trooper. 
  • with teaching Lil O new things. 

Lastly, I thank all of you - my readers for the outpouring of comments and appreciation. Thank you!

I got my best friend's little boy the cat piano for his birthday, and he LOVES it! She sent me a video the other day of him singing the songs from it. So sweet! I think you should go for it!

Happy 7 months to your baby girl! And definitely let us know how Fairies in a Jar works out, it looks like it would be a great decorating idea for an outdoor party!
