November 2008


I went to the pediatrician last week for my 12 month checkup. I was not too happy to get three shots – when is that ever going to end. The doctor says I am doing well and here are my stats:

Weight: 21lbs 7oz (30th percentile and I have gained 2.5 lbs from my last visit)
Height: 30.25 inches (70th percentile and I have grown 1.125 inches).
Head Circ: 18 inches (25th percentile and up 0.5 inches).

The doctor also gave the go ahead for me to start drinking whole milk. It ain’t so bad. The doctor also said I needed to be weaned from bottles and I should move to sippy cups. Mom has tried in the past to give me sippy cups, but I have always refused them. What makes her think that will change now that I am a big one year old? She told the doctor that I hate sippy cups. He said then just give me 8 oz milk in the morning and evening in a bottle and the rest of the day only offer me a sippy cup. Well mom tried to start this master plan on Saturday and I was having none of it. I clinched my lips closed whenever the sippy cup came near me. Look at how mad I get when they bring the sippy cup near me

I could tell mom was extremely worried that I was dehydrated. I have almost broke her. My nanny was easy to break – she is a softy. By Tuesday, she was giving me bottle in the early afternoon. I need to keep working on mommy. Don’t worry Mr. Bottle I am not letting you go. See the pic below that shows how happy I am when I have my bottle with me.

I love my bottle

Saturday Nov 8th was the Red Carpet Premier of “My First Birthday” (aka – my first birthday party). It was great. Not only did I get to hang out with all the people I care about, I also got to devour my birthday cake. It was so yummy – I got to eat my cake and wear it too. I also was blessed to get so many wonderful gifts. Thanks to all those who came and can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Khalin Patel’s first film role came in 2007 when he was a few minutes old with a few lines in The Born Identity.  Patel later appeared in small roles in Jurassic ParkThree Men and a Baby , Swingers and Mama Mia! before landing a big part in The Hand that Rocks the Carseat.  The true range of Patel’s acting skills came out in the role of the innocent-looking antagonizer of fellow playmate Vijay Kannan.  He next appeared as a burger-loving misfit in Harold and Kumar with Henrik Raimo.  His most recent movie – Fight Club – received critical acclaim for his role depicting the cruel sport of baby cage fighting.  The grueling training he endured with fellow co-star Caden Han paid off when Patel received the Academy Award for Best Actor.  (click on each image to view a larger image).

Khalin’s next role in the highly anticipated “My First Birthday” screened this past Saturday.  Pictures and reviews will be posted shortly.

I made it through my first halloween.  What an ordeal.  I got dressed up in this uncomfortable dragon outfit.  It had this huge tail that made it so difficult for me to sit comfortably.  Then the whole head piece was the most irritating thing mom and dad has ever put on me.  Then they took me around the neighborhood.  I tried to be all smiley, but I was so tired and I just wanted to get my costume off.  

I also got to see a lot of people this past weekend.  Uncle Raj L, Aunty Artika, Uncle Ravi and Aunty Sasha came over.  Uncle Raj L and Uncle Ravi challenged me to another cage fight – or course I beat them (check out the pics below).  We also met Uncle Alpen and Aunty Neelam at their nephew’s first birthday party.  Uncle Raj G, Uncle Meghal and Aunty Amy were all at the party too.  I was so excited to meet Uncle Alpen – he was the guy who introduced mommy and daddy.  Without him, there would be no me and without me there would be no cranky dragons in the world…
