Anyhow like they say time flies when you are having fun, and I had fun this weekend! Fun with what??? Fun with a baby....yes, an adorable 7 month old baby, my husband's cousin's daughter. The cousin was MIA, but his parents from Chennai and wife and baby from LA visited us over the weekend! Its been a while since we have had a baby in the house, the last time was when another cousin came with her 5 month old, about 2 years ago when our dogs were a year old and jealous of any small thing that demanded any attention, so they promptly nipped the little baby in the foot. Word spread of the baby nipping dogs in the Raghavan household and all babies and moms stayed away...till this weekend!!! Fortunately the dogs have mellowed or become too fat to expend their energy nipping toddlers or finally secure in the knowledge that we love them too....whatever the reason, they behaved and all was well!
Anyway, I digress....going back to babies, it was so much fun. And the fact that this was a very VERY social baby was great. I have quite forgotten how a baby can turn a house upside down...round the clock there were feeding bottles being sterilized, nappies being washed, formula being formulated, warm water being poured in thermoses, baby songs being sung, Dr. Seuss being read and stuffed baby toys being squeaked.
Here is baby Malavika....the 7 month old who had everyone's attention for 3 days and pics of the baby weekend!
I was given this absolutely gorgeous painted wood and ceramic gift by baby's mom
Then last evening after our guests had left, I went around the house from room to room trying to find a place to hang up my recent artwork, and decided here would be good
And then lit some lamps outside
It was a lovely weekend...busy but really enjoyable! Am expecting more guests from Sydney this week, so my blog posts may be few and far between, if at all! All of you have a lovely week! And thank you Patty....it is so much fun to do this.
