Ansh in Preschool class

Hello everybody,
How are you doing? I am here with Ansh's updates. Ansh is now in Preschool class, it is called green room in his school. He is learning a lot there. He is doing writing practice there. Connect the dots is his favorite activity. He likes to participate during circle time. He can speak 1 to 100 now. He knows first ABCD and little bit of second abcd. He seems to be very mature. He takes care of Khushi so much. Ansh and Khushi wake up together in the morning. They take shower together, eat breakfast together and sometimes Khushi comes to drop off or pick up Ansh from school. Ansh's favorite toys: Hawa Hava bottle, spray bottle, Pankho,Battery.
Ansh's favorite food: Milk, Banana-Apple shake, fruits, vegetables, Salad, Chips and dip, sweets etc. He loves most of the food.
He likes to play in park. He also likes to play with Khushi and Anay. His attention span is very good. He likes to talk a lot before going to sleep. These days Ansh and Khushi both sleep together at night. Ansh understands a lot now. Ansh made a song 'Anshil Banshil, Mumma Panchhil'. He is smart, handsome boy with good understanding.
We love him a lot.
Will come again with new pictures and stories.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to dear Ansh bhailu ... Happy Birthday to you. Yes, Ansh is 3 years old now. He is a big boy. I can say, he is now more of my friend than son. Because he understands a lot and he behaves that way. He is going to the new class in his school as he is a big boy now. He is completely potty train boy. Sweet, little handsome boy :). we love you dear. This year we celebrated his birthday in India with everybody there. We had lot of fun. Anshbhai takes very good care of Khushiben and Khushiben always finds bhailu all the time to play with. They both can't leave without each other.

How are you doing? We had a blast, becauuuuuuuuseeeeee..... we went to India in May, 2011. We stayed there for 6 weeks. We flew from SFO airport on 25th May. We had a whole day holt at Hong Kong. We moved around in the city. we sat in train, bus and we went to Ocean Park. We reached India at night. We met Ushaba, Jayumama, Jigishamami and Haribhai in Ahmedabad. Ansh and Khushi had lot of fun playing with Hari. They all had nice company. We all had jet lag so, we used to wake up pretty early in the morning and we go to the park to play in the early morning around 5.30. We enjoyed eating Mangoes. AAAAAAhhh... its so yuuuummmm. We also had very nice time with Ushaba. We enjoyed first rain of the season. We all got wet in rain. We had ravana jambu too. We had been to swimming pool in Jayumama's colony. We also met Arukaka, Latakaki and Sonalmasi in A'bad. We had been to mall in A'bad.We also went to see Science city. Musical fountains at Science city where very unique and nice. We also met Vijaymasa, Pratibhamasi,Yashmama and Haritmama in A'bad.
Ansh had fun playing with Haribhai because he had not been playing with elder kids, so he was enjoying so much. Khushi was also moving around with them and playing. She used to call 'Hariiiiiiiiiii', ' Harrrrrrrrrrrrrriiii'.

We went to Rajkot afterward. We enjoyed going for 'Kabu mum' and 'Gaay mum mum' with Jasiba. Ansh and Khushi enjoyed eating 'Ganthiya' and 'Khajali' in Rajkot.

Kids used to play in the street during evening time and Ansh and Khushi join the party. They love to be like Indian kids. We enjoyed a lot. Both kids saw 'Jalesh' were mummy born and brought up, So mom had lot of emotional attachment to that place and kids show the same attachment to Rajkot.

Ansh fall sick in Rajkot for a week. He had throught infection and high fever. But he got better after a week. We went to fun world to have fun.

After our Rajkot trip, where mummy had very strong emotional attachment, we went to Baroda via A'bad. Baroda is the place where Pappa, born and brought up.

We had fun there.

We went to Hyderabad afterwords as Papa had to work from Hyderabad Google office. So, Ushaba,Mummy, Papa, Ansh, Khushi and Yashmama went to Hyderabad at Pratibhamasi's place. We had blast there. Pratibhamasi and Vijaymasa took care of us very well. we went at Husainsagar lake, we did boating there and we saw big Budhdha statue. We also saw laser and musical fountain show which was amazing. We also went to see 'Ramoji film city'. We did lot of shopping from there.
We also visited Hyderabad Google office.

We returned back to Ahemdabad. Hinumama, Hetalmami and Small little angel came to see us at Ahmedabad. We had very nice time together.
We returned back on June, 4th, 2001. ....................With lot of sweet memories. Our heart was filled with both emotions. Happiness to see everyone and to spend nice time with everybody. and sadness as we were leaving them. Everything became live as I am writing these things. No words to say, but I really really miss everyone there and India.

We are back home, everyone was waiting for us Ba, Dada, Anaybhai, Kaka, Kaki. Motaba came with us to US. Now, Ansh goes to school everyday. Khushi speaks a lot 'Ganthiya aapo', 'Paani Aapo' and all type of stuff. She had new 6 teeth.

Hi Everyone,

Last three weeks have been very eventful. First little Khushi can now walk around the whole house and outside with all of us. We are even getting some pictures of her walking with me and Anay. Its gonna be so cool when all three of us run around.

All of us went to Monterey Bay Aquarium couple weeks ago. Anaybhai, Khushiben, and I had lot of fun. We walked around so all the fishes, even got to hold couple of starfishes in our hands. We saw sea horses and sea dragons, jellyifish or various kind, star fishes, and and sea creatures of various kind. We also got to do some drawings and stampings. Our favorite part was a waterfall that falls over glass on top of us making us feel like it fell on us. We had soo much fun there we never wanted to get out :).

Week later we went to Oakland Zoo. We saw lot of animals there and even got to pat goats and sheeps. We saw tigers and girrafes, goats and sheeps, rabbits and turtles, and crocodiles real big. We saw elephants and kangaroos and rode merry-go-round and train. We had a ton of fun. We met with Prashantfua, Mitufoi, and Ritika at the zoo. We had sandwiches and rice krispy treats at the zoo. Coming back from the zoo we went to a taco bell and got some food from there.

Here are some pictures from both trips and all of us having fun.

Happy Holi and Google t-shirt

Hi Everyone,

Last weekend I went to Sunnyvale Hindu Temple with Khushi, Dadda, mummy, and pappa. On Friday evening we went to puja for Holi. I was asleep by the time we got to temple at 6pm, but woke up soon after we reached. We ran around in the temple, saw the holi puja and holika dahan. It was outside and it was quite cold, but I had fun. We also ate food there although it was quite hot for me so I only had some shiro.

On Saturday we went to music class, followed by Sweet Tomatoes for food, followed by visit to Temple for Dhuleti. There was loud music in a hall and lots and lots of people. Everyone had color bags and they threw colors at each other. We also got dandia and people were dancing with the music. There were also few playing playing dhols. Initially I was bit scared, but then quickly got in tune and had a blast. I threw colors at everyone and danced. We got some pictures as well.

I have been clamoring for Google t-shirts and my dad wouldn't get me one, so I started wearing his Google t-shirts :). That got his attention so now I have a brand new Google t-shirt and hoddie.
