Jerry's Trousers

We had great fun reading about a rather proud and pompous dog Jerry and how his good and kind friend Billy saves him. The authors Nigel Boswall and David Melling use the collection of trousers owned by Jerry and the damages caused to it to pass the message that pride comes before a fall. Well written with very cute, funny illustrations.

Aarush in slumberland

A few snapshots taken in the first 2 months....

February 4, 2010


Aarush had the 6 month shots yesterday. Two sharp jabs on each of his legs! The second one had him screaming at his loudest. It breaks my heart to see the little one in pain. But to make up for that, I made sure that he enjoyed a warm and cosy sleep on my chest until the early hours of the morning.

He is now 7.9 kgs. The length and the head circumference were not checked by the doc.

Appu was feeling very sad about the shots and infact by the time we reached home she was actually in tears!

New Books

Got Appu introduced to the Magic Tree House series last week. She has been enjoying it quite a bit. But I definitely loved the first book that we read.

Finally managed to get a copy of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” from Jashanmal Stores. Surprisingly, Appu loved the book though it is not actually for her age group! After a read through with Appu beside me and Aarush in my lap, the comment from Appu was “Awesome!”.

Books are way too expensive in this part of the world. Hope I can pick up loads of good and reasonably priced books when we visit India at the end of the month.
