4 Months!

Diya is 4 months!! The time really seems to be going quickly! Here's Diya's picture with her dog :)
Here's a picture of Diya & Aashini both at 4 months. You can't tell much from this picture :) You can look at Aashini's 4 month post - here. Last month Diya looked much bigger, but this month she looks smaller in these pics. Not sure if Aashini grew a lot that month, or just the way it looks on camera :) It's fun to see them together at the same age :) Aashini had such blonde hair she didn't look like she had any hair ;) So fun :)
And here is a picture of the girls together now :) This picture is funny to me :)
Happy 4 months Diya!!!

Our friend Aridhi came over the other day and brought Aashini some bubbles :) She's had a great time playing with them :)
She makes the funniest little face when she blows bubbles! She puffs out her cheeks and makes cute fish lips :) I love it! ;)
Bubbles are very fun!!

Sister Time :)

Aashini loves Diya! It's so fun to see them interact :) Aashini has a new thing that she loves to do. In the mornings we have a pretty regular routine. Wake up, eat breakfast & take a bath. After her bath, she usually sits and watches a show on TV while we get ready (Usually Word World or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse), then we take her to school. Lately she's been wanting to watch TV with her little sister.
Diya really seems to like it (you can see her happy expression on her face below). Aashini is so sweet with her and just holds her and pats her stomach if she gets upset and says: "Don't worry Diya". It's so cute :)
I had to include this one... Aashini has discovered boogers but has been really into her nose lately... it's hard to get a picture of her without her fingers in her nose... nice!
Aashini is always loving on Diya... but Diya has now learned how to grab handfuls of Aashini's hair... haha!

Diya is Growing Up!!

Diya is getting so big so fast!!! She's so fun :) She rolled over from back to tummy for the first time this week :) She's gotten pretty good with pushing up on her tummy too. She's so proud of herself when she does it :)
Diya also does this funny thing - she tries to sit up on her own all the time. It seems like quite the stomach exercise!! haha!
And, for those that have been asking... her eyes are still blue... looks like they might stay that way and I'll be the only brown eyed girl in this family :)

Aashini LOVES cooking!! She always runs into the kitchen and asks me if she can "do cooking". We always have to come up with things for her to cook. Here she is "cooking chai" :)
Making popcorn is one of her favorite things to make!
There's usually a fun mess when she's done cooking (you can see the seeds going everywhere in the pic below) :)
Here she is showing off her new apron :)
When she makes popcorn, Adam always makes her stand back from the stove (keeping her away from hot oil!), but she still directs from behind! (see her little first finger up - she knows how to use that finger!!!) :)
So fun! :)

Lil Bit of This & That :)

This is just a post of some random pics of the girls :) Aashini has been really into shadows lately. It's really cute! She LOVES shadows! It was so cute when she really discovered shadows and since then she's LOVED them! Here she is trying to touch the shadow of my hand :)
She LOVES dress-up :)
The other day she got all dressed up and called herself a princess rockstar :)
Diya has been neglected in the last few blog posts, so here's a couple of pictures of her :) She's started to be able to hold her head up longer and longer. She looks so big sitting up!!
Whenever we give her tummy time, she always tries to get as comfortable as possible :) Here she is all comfortable with her thumb in her mouth :)

Future Olympian?

Do we have a future Olympian on our hands? If the "ball race" is in the Olympics, then we might! :)
Aashini's school had a big sports day the other day. Her class raced in the ball race and Aashini came in first!! She won a gold medal and a certificate :) That month she was also given the award of the most athletic student :) Here she is with her awards!
She was really proud of her gold medal!
Here she is checking it out....
Yep! It really is gold! :) haha!

Aashini loves to play! I think that's what they do best at her age :) haha! The other day she had on these dress up shoes and kept walking around the house on her play phone. She thought she was so cool :)Later that day, we were on the porch playing with her magnet letters....
... I totally didn't teach her that!!
It was sunny, so she wanted a pair of sunglasses. She wanted to wear them, but they were "too dark", so she wore them on her forehead :) haha!
Playing is fun!

Dancing Princess :)

My sister got Aashini this cute ballet costume for Aashini. She LOVES it! She was wearing it the other day and spinning all around - it was so cute!
Here she is spinning....
... and spinning...
... and spinning...
... and spinning!
She had so much fun! :)
Growing up I took about 8 years of ballet/pointe - I wonder if she'll like ballet like I did? :)
I love her big smile :)

Hangin' Around :)

The other day we went out to the mall before dinner (one of our fave places to go for dinner) and decided to take a few pics before we went out . We don't have many family pics and Aashini was in the mood for taking pics, so we took a few :) haha!
Here's Aashini showing off her fun new glittery "boots" from her Masi and Jesse. She thought they were so cool and kept running around in them :)
We decided to take the stroller to the mall to see if Diya would be happy in it (and save my shoulder)... but she wasn't into it. We ended up pushing an empty stroller while holding Diya in the sling and Aashini walking. Aashini later decided she wanted to be in the stroller, so she climbed in and thought she was so cool :)
Before dinner we took Aashini to one of the fun play places at the mall so she could play.
It's one of her favorite things to do, she loves playing, running around and hanging out with other kids ;)

An Aashini Video :)

Aashini has a Leapfrog Video that she loves that teaches the sounds that the alphabet makes. She LOVES it! She now knows all the sounds of the alphabet - it's fun :) Here's a video of her doing those sounds (if you're interested :) This may be a "grandparents only" post :) haha!), her ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, a piece of a poem & the Lion Hindi poem again (but even better now) :)

Random Update :)

Here's a few random pics from the last week :) Just a couple of days ago Diya decided that she loves baths! That is GREAT because Aashini never really liked them, so we always felt so bad giving them to her ;) haha!
This picture makes me smile :)
Adam's mom and her friend Susan came to visit. They played Holi while they were here.
Diya's first Holi... not a great picture - it's very overexposed, but I had to post a picture of Diya's first Holi :)
....and here is my little rockstar!
