Look its us in Indian Clothes! Me in a Salwar Kameez, J and Bun in Kurtas. This weekend our local Bengali community celebrated a puja in honor of goddess Saraswati- the goddess of knowledge and music. And we had a great time enjoying up some Indian time.
“I have a red wagon” is one of Bun’s favorite sentences these days. He tells me this, everytime we leave the house or return home, because the red wagon is parked outside with the cars. We got the wagon as a holiday presents from a good friend of ours and it has been a huge hit!
Last weekend, we had spring like weather and we took an impromptu family walk ( with the red wagon of course) to enjoy all the sunshine.
Bun: “I push Mama”

Notes to Self:
Life in January seems to be starting out well. I have 2012 set aside to figure out what I want to do with the my life? Am I really a grown up yet? So many things to learn and figure out.
Some good friends are going to be returning to Durham for a visit this weekend. It is making me really happy to think we’ll get to hang out with them and even though they met Bun when he was baby, it will be like meeting him all over again, since he is completely different now. I’m also looking forward to some, fun, crazy grown up time with them as well.
Bun’s sentences and sayings are killing me these days. Faves of this week-
Me: Lets go upstairs and clean your poop and change your diaper
Bun: I’m sick of clean up
Bun: (Sniffs Layla’s bum) Layla need diapoo change
“I’m Okay” He says this whenever he needs some reassurance or has bumped his head, but not hurt himself enough to get any reaction from me.
“Daddy, you give me____” Usually followed by something I won’t give him aka blueberries, lollipop or candy
“What a Funny Fellow” My dad taught him this phrase and he says this with the biggest grin on his face whenever he or anyone else does something funny or silly.
Earlier this week J, Bun and I were getting ready to head out and run errands. And while I was getting ready, I asked J if he would help Bun get ready. Father and Son came up with this outfit. Although the boots, belt and hat are all Bun’s pick! I have to say, I kinda love his style! He is wearing Khaki courdrouys (my pick) Red Shirt ( My pick ) Grey Stripe Cardigan(J’s pick) J’s belt looped around cardigan, Green Rain boats and sailor hat (Bun’s pick). We did convince him to take off the belt before we headed out of the house because I really didn’t want to deal with it falling down, once we were out and about.
The pics are super blurry because he would not be still and we were in a hurry to get out the door.
P.S Please not that the boots are on the wrong foot and he would not let us fix it. He put them on himself after all
I have a major case of the blaaahs this afternoon. I’m so over this cold weather, so this post is much needed. You know to motivate me. Also, I found this great pic of Bun at 24 months in my Picasa Stream. I love photo surprises
I’m not doing resolutions…don’t think I ever really have. Of course there are always goals that I’m working towards, but I don’t think they are related to the new year- Lose baby weight has been a goal since before I had a baby…its just that there is more of it now.
However, there are a few things I do want to do this year and just want a reminder for self.
***Send Holiday cards- Completely dropped the ball on this one, this year and it is making me sad. I love getting other people’s holiday cards and photos and I love sending them too.
***Ensure the existence of 4 family pictures taken in 2012. Meaning photos not taken with the iphone by me or J. It can be taken either by self timer or another person. Also, I’d like one for each season, please
***Do not wait till July to buy a swimsuit for Bun or self. All the cute ones are gone and they are still not on post season sale yet
***Cut bangs again or color hair again. Only not a boring brown.
***Cute flats. They are my best friend. I didnt’ really embrace being on the short side until this year. But there is now no going back. Comfort- Check. Style -Check
***More blog posts like this. A photo I’m loving of my kid, plus random thoughts. Some of the the big milestone blog posts stress me out because there are just too many photos to sort through. Like Bun’s party. Must post those soon.
***Find Answers. I need some about life, love, career, motherhood. I need to learn more and actively find answers
***Print. Frame. Display Photos. In my house. I have so many pretty frames with no photos
***Garden Again. This Summer.
***Disconnect Cable. Or think really long and hard about it. At least make the phone call.
Hmmm…I wonder if I’ll remember more once I hit publish.
