New Baby :)

Our friends Deepak and family just had a baby :) They had a baby boy and named him Ashish - it means "blessing".Here he is :) He's definitely a cutie! He's only 3 weeks old :)
I took this pic this week and I liked it :) thought I'd share... This lady's job is to carry bricks (on her head) from place to place. I love how ladies here will still wear saris while doing hard manual labor!
You guys ROCK!!!

I always feel so badly for those ladies, doing all that hard labor, and half the time with their babies strapped to their back or playing right next to the cars zooming by. But you're right - the saris definitely dress up their look!

I know! It's crazy!
And yeah, the saris definiely dress up their look, I always feel underdressed by them.

both of those boys are beautiful. anything in particular happen during a traditional indian birthing? I know yours was anything but conventional, so I think we missed some potential culture lessons there. share the quirks! :)

I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am with you and A and all of the things you are doing. Of all the people I have reconnected with through myspace and other blogs, you two always stand out to me. You both seem to be living life with such purpose and direction. When other people (myself included) are blogging about new furniture, new cars, or going to the movies over the weekend, you two are talking about what new country you have visited, what new festival you just participated in, and new relationships you have formed, all while bringing along a beautiful new baby. I think that at the end of our lives, whenever that comes, all we really have are the people to whom we have shown love and poured out ourselves and the experiences we have collected along the journey. From where I sit, I would say that you both are well on your way to building true wealth. You both encourage me to re-evaluate my life and my priorities.

Take care,
