The summer is winding down. We are gearing up for hurricane irene. I just experienced my first big earthquake. Needless to say life is a bit crazy. Karsin is also learning a lot of new things – can you believe he is already 10 month olds. He crawls really well now, pulls himself up and even stands on his own for a few seconds here and there. Here is a video of some of his firsts. You will see that he doesn’t like popsicles – hard to believe someone wouldn’t like those. I think popsicles are “yummy in my tummy.” He also got his first haircut.

And here are some pics…


Why do my parents continue to mess with my luscious locks.  They thought it was time again for another haircut.  This time they thought that I should get my haircut at a fancy salon (cartoon cuts).  Boy that place was scary.  When it was all over, I barely had any hair.  I was so sad, but I guess it is just hair and it will grow back again. 

Well a whole week has gone by since this whole Ferber thing started and now I am officially a Ferber man. I can go to sleep on my own and even when I wake up in the middle of the night I put myself back to sleep. I still protest a little when mom and dad put me in my crib. Sometimes I cry for a minute and other times like tonight I cry for 10 minutes. Now that I have been sleeping a lot better I wake up with the happiest smile on my face. I just hang out in my crib and wait for either mom and dad to come get me. Mom and dad also seem a lot happier – I think they are finally getting some sleep. I guess Ferber ain’t so bad.

Also, this past week was quite busy. I went to temple to try to get my first hair cut. The priest said that I could only get it during odd months. Now I have to wait until I am 5 months old. I also had brunch at Aunty Anjum’s house where I got to hang out with Caden and Rahul. Aunty Lynda, Aunty Ur, Uncle Peter and Uncle Matthew came to visit. I also tried barley for the first time – I like oatmeal a lot better. Here are some recent pictures and check out Peter teaching me his dance moves.
