Christmas in March :)

So... Adam & I didn't really get anything for each other for Christmas... It was kinda crazy... you know... Getting checked into the hospital in October... having Aashini November 7... then staying in the hospital for a while.... going home... learning how to be parents (starting to learn anyway :))... going BACK into the hospital for over a week AND for Christmas....

Needless to say, we didn't really spend the time to buy each other anything.... sooo... we went to the mall the other day to get an inflatable bathtub for Aashini for traveling. We now have a mall on our side of town!! It's great! (before, we would have to drive at least an hour to get to a mall) :) So, Adam found something he wanted, and I found something I wanted... so we decided we should get them and call them Christmas presents - haha! (any excuse to buy toys - haha!).
This is what Adam got:

A wiffle ball set! whoo hoo!!! I got a bracelet:

So when we were buying Aashini's tub we decided that she needed a toy too :) So we got her these fun balls. Here she is in her bathtub with her balls :)
She started trying to put them in her mouth and really had fun with them! haha! We'll definitely have fun with those more in the future! :)
I"ll post more ball pictures on the baby blog :)

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
