|Jarra turns 3!!! Belly growing steadily!
We had a fabulous birthday party for Jarra with a Spongebob bounce house, lots of food, friends and fun! Grandma cooked up a storm of Manicotti and penne, we got a princess cake from Costco which was very yummy and definitely Jarra's favorite part of the party! Mommy was looking cute with her baby belly bursting out. Daddy was having fun mingling with Grandpa Al and Jason, etc. Jarra got tons of very nice gifts! Clothes, playdough factory, some Japanese building blocks, princess dress up clothes, mommy and daddy got her a trampoline off Craigslist, baby dolls, books, Ziggy Marley CD, etc. It was great! One of the hilights was when Bertha and Arturo showed up all dressed up with a pinata full of candy and we all got to take swings at it after all the kids failed to break it open! When daddy was trying to hit it, Arturo was making it go all over the place so daddy had to try really hard to hit it. Daddy Mike came too on his new motercycle and seemed to enjoy the party.
Jarra also started her new preschool which is GREAT at UCR. Lots of nice friends, good teachers, good food, and fun. And it gives mommy and grandma a big break too. :) Tonight mommy and Jarra took a bath together and Jarra was washing the baby with her Dora washcloth. What a sweety! This morning grandma made a comment about Jarra usually waking up at the crack of dawn and Jarra said, I wake up with the crocodiles? It was sooo cute.
This is funny- Daddy tells Jarra that I'm an animal doctor and Jarra always says, no she's a people doctor. Well we finally figured out why she says that! She was looking at our puppy Dixie and talking about the dots on her paws (meaning the pads) and she said, mommy if you're an animal doctor, why don't you have dots on your hands like Dixie?" She was taking it as me being an animal and a doctor. :) how cute is THAT!?
On another note, the pregnancy is going very well so far. Daddy gives mommy her shot every night and belly is growing steadily. Ultrasound was stellar and we were happy to know everything was ok and also that we were having a boy. Though we would have been happy either way! We are thinking we will name him Sivan. But it is not set in stone yet. Still open for suggestions. The family in India requested a pic of mommy with her growing belly so daddy took one and sent it to them. :) Mommy and daddy just spent the last couple weeks getting the whole house tiled downstairs in the kitchen and living room, dining and entry way. We are so happy with the results. We love our house, home and our family. Thank God for all the blessings. :)

What a wonderful night we had! You came home from the gym with grandma and ate some penne pasta and bread and butter and then you wanted to draw on your dry erase board. You were scribbling all over and have never been able to draw anything but an irregularly shaped circle. Then you wanted me to help you make a face so I came over and held your hand and made happy faces and you loved it. You kept wanting to make them in different places. Then I cleaned the board and you tried to make a happy face and you did it!!! I was so amazed and proud of you!!! You made 4 of them and then you counted them up and got it right. You are such a smart girl. Daddy Gaurav came over and was very proud too. Then mommy put on some music, it was first Andrea Boccelli and you started dancing and then it switched to Mozart and you were doing all kinds of ballet moves! You have only had 30 minutes of ballet but you were doing all kinds of dance moves and mommy was so impressed she got the video cam out and taped you! It was such therapy for you to just dance all over the living room for a long time! Then mommy and you watched Spongebob, then mommy read you a book and daddy took you upstairs and put you to bed. What a fabulous wonderful little girl you are! Mommy and daddy are so proud!
