Mom and Dad’s quest to cut my luscious locks has hit another roadblock.  We went to the temple again this past weekend to try to get my haircut.  If you remember the last time we went, the priest said that I could only get my haircut during an odd month and that I had to come back when I was five months old.  Well I am five months old and this time the priest on duty said that I could only get it during my 11th month.  After explaining to the priest that the other priest said that we could get it done during the fifth month without an appointment, this priest said that he thought it would be ok but we HAD to have an appointment.  We went to the office to make an appointment, but the manager said that haircuts are usually done only during the 7th and 9th month.  Mom and Dad were thoroughly confused but decided to schedule my official haircut for May 10th at 11pm at the SSVT temple.  (I will still be 5 months).  Grandma and Grandpa will be in town and anyone else who wants to watch this momentous occasion is welcome to come. 

After leaving temple, we went to Aunty Sharmila and Uncle Shyam’s house and got to meet beautiful baby Vijay.  We also had brunch with Uncle Sundeep and Aunty Ranjana on Sunday.  Other than that this past week was pretty quiet except for trying peas for the first time.  They were so yummy.  

Here are some pics from last week and a few from Uncle Sundeep and Aunty Ranjana’s shower.

I can’t believe how time flies – I turned 5 months on Friday.  Overall, it was a pretty quiet week.  I ate sweet potatoes for the first time – I love that stuff.  I also got to meet baby Arpan at brunch on Sunday.  I have also almost perfected rolling over from my back to my stomach – I did it once by myself on Saturday but haven’t repeated that again. 

Here are some pics from the last few weeks!

Today is such a sad day – mommy went back to work.  I tried to keep a happy face when she left because I could tell that mommy was really upset.  I just can’t wait until she comes back from work today. 

On a happier note, these past few days have included a lot of fun activities.  Last weekend I went with mommy and daddy to the Cherry Blossom festival.  We didn’t stay there long because it was really cold.  I also went over to uncle Vikas and Aunty Neha’s house.  Natasha Foi came to visit me this past weekend and I got to meet a bunch of her friends and also hang out with baby Kavi.  Prabhakar Uncle and Padma Aunty and the twins (Arthi and Archana) came to see me.  Mom and Dad also threw a baby shower for Uncle Sundeep and Aunty Ranjana.  I stayed up really late and got to meet a bunch of new people.  I also can’t wait until their baby comes along so I can have another playmate.   Today I tried out my high chair for the first time and I have also grown to love my baby Einstein activity center.
