How do I notify you?

Dear Readers,

A few of you left comments on the last post stating that you would like the link to the new blog. PLEASE add your email, or at least a blog address where I can go and add a comment on your blog!

Anjali, I can't reach email and no blog profile so I can't reach your blog either.

Ayesha - Same thing, when I click on your name it goes to profile unavailable.

You may email me at if you don't want to post your email on my comments.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! :-) Have written a few new posts on the newer blog, am excited to share.

Toodle loo

I've begun a new blog. Please add your email if you would like the link.

Not saying good bye, but am not inspired to continue writing for this blog. When the inspiration hits I'll be back. The new blog will also contain stories about Om but further include other random ideas floating through my head.

Thanks! :-) Much love to my lurkers (I know you are out there) and the new friends (fellow Moms) I have made.

Sparrow, Dad, and Son

Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary

The anniversary of my labor pains. 53 weeks ago waddled into a hospital, moaning and groaning, not sure what to expect, excited and anxious. Labor pains which changed my life (and the life of G's) forever. In the span of 24 hours, my heart suddenly latched itself to another being in a way thoroughly unlike the way our heart attaches to our family or spouses.

Labor pains which resulted in this squishy cheeked sweet smelling eyelash envy wonder:

Happy First Birthday to Om.
And Happy Labor/Delivery Anniversary to me.

Okay so it's been a while, and I miss everyone.

And I realize that I need to blog so I can log Om's milestones, otherwise I get Mom Brain.

So I'll be writing up some posts soon and uploading. Stay tuned.

Portland Trip

Last month we went to Portland, Oregon for a basketball game. Although I'm not a basketball fan, it was neat to see the L.A Lakers in action.

We took a train from Seattle to Portland. It was the first time for me on a train (in the US). The train ride went fairly well, we arrived there in about 4 hours. Om was SUPER excited thoughout the whole trip. It was hard to put him down for naps because he just wanted to explore and socialize.

Cute kid in the hotel, trying out the bed with toy in hand.

Cute kid tryin' out the bathroom sink. Mini jacuzzi anyone?

Cute kid makin' cute Shirley Temple look-alike friends on the train. Om's first girlfriend?

Cute kid passed out in the carseat during the game. He made it for about 2 hours before we had to put him down for a nap amidst all the noise. Om sleeps all bundled up.

LA Laker's vs. Portland Trail Blazers. Kobe Bryant is in there somewhere!

Cute kid with his 'rents. He's looking at me so admiringly! LOL...15 years later he may not like us this much. :D
