Its been a while since we posted to this blog. What better day to restart blogging than our son Sameer's first birthday. What a fun-filled day it has been. I thought I should share the day with you all.
Ruchi made काला चना (kala chana) and सूजी का हलवा (sooji ka halwa) for breakfast for Sameer. To our delight, he ate both of these easily. This doubled up as pooja prasad also. We took this prasad to our local mandir, Durga Mandir. The prasad was an instant hit at the mandir. We also ran into our friends Garima and Badal there.
After our mandir trip, we went to a local South Indian restaurant and had pessarattu upma and onion coconut rava dosa. Pessarattu upma is a green moong dal dosa with upma for stuffing. Betu ate vada. He is into crispy things these days.
While Ruchi was baking cup cakes for Sameer, I was busy playing ball with him. We bought a volleyball sized ball for betu recently. Ruchi made these delicious carrot/apple cup cakes. When we sang "Happy Birthday to you", Betu, to our surprise, clapped for the first time. Betu liked the icing more than the cake.
His sleep schedule got a bit messed up today, but I am sure he enjoyed the day।
