More everyday life

As usual Nandu sleeps on his dad's lap while we eat :) Vishal has become an expert at one hand eating!

And here is my orchid in full bloom. I wonder how long it's going to last!

Half a smile. He smiles a lot, but not at the camera, sorry!

Here we are trying in new clothes he got for Easter, with the shoes that his Indian grandma knitted for him.

Bath time

Just a little post to keep a memory of what bath time looks like with a 7 weeks old baby... (This was taken last week, because those who pay attention know that Nandu is actually 8 weeks today!)

Weekend in Neuchatel

This was Nandu's first visit to his grandpa's house. And it was also the Millenium of the city where I grew up which meant that lots of my friends where in town. We were lucky and it was a very successful first trip out of Geneva, pleasant, relaxing and a lot of fun.

The train ride went smoothly as you can see below. I start to really enjoy feeding him and being able to do it anywhere, so it makes traveling that much easier!

Then, on Saturday, we spent the day having friends over, and Nandu was smiling to everyone (very gratifying for the parents!).

Also, I discovered that I stare at my son a lot... there are basically no pictures of me not watching him! And he spent most of the weekend on his dad's lap, he is always very happy there.

On Sunday we went for a little walk in the city, where we run into a whole bunch of friends... one of the good thing about small towns!

And Vishal decided it was time for his son to become a mac addict.

Finally we took the train back to Geneva and Nandu enjoyed the view before asking to be fed again.

New tricks

We just discovered today that Nandu actually loves his play mat! Last time I tried (maybe 4-5 days ago) he couldn't care less and just wanted to be picked up. But today he managed to reach for the ball (which has bells in it) and he was mesmerized! Let's hope it's the beginning of him being able to entertain himself a bit...

Avant la balade

Voila a quoi ressemble les departs en balade pour le moment. Franchement, vive l'echarpe, c'est genial pour se balader tranquillement sans etre encombre d'une poussette.

So here is what going for a walk looks like nowadays.. Slings are the best invention... so simple yet so efficient!

So here is what nap time looks like at my house :)

And here is a little game we play with Nandu, alternating between making him laugh and scaring him a bit with lips noises...

edit: ok, the quality of the video is bad, but this give you an idea.

Learning to pee

Crash course about baby boy parenthood: When a baby boy has to pee, it is quite obvious, so instead of wasting a diaper, we took the habit of bringing him over the sink, and with the help of a little sounds like "psssss" and some cold water, we usually manage to get him to pee in the sink. So here are a few pictures of such a session:

And here is a visit of the grandpa :)

Vishal managed to get pictures of Nandu's smile while I was sleeping yesterday :)
He has been smiling for more than a week, but until now none of us had managed to take a picture of it. These are taken with Vishal's phone and from very close, so his head looks a bit deformed, but still you can enjoy the smile.

And here are two versions of the same kid

The awake kid, probably wondering why I play with my phone instead of feeding him

And the sleepy picture, after the belly has been filled.

Daddy's turn

Vishal getting a taste of what it means to be pregnant :)

Needless to say that the delivery was much shorter.

Nandu is really getting used to being in the scarf, which is super convenient. As soon as he is in it (and given that he was fed and changed) he sleeps for at least an hour without complaining a bit, regardless of whether we are in the grocery store, the park or home.

Orchids and kid

In December I brought back an orchid from my mum's house in France. It was blooming when I left but when I arrived in Switzerland it quickly lost all it's flowers. It probably didn't like the trip. But 3 months later, here what it looks like... let's just say I proud :)

And here is the real reason you are visiting this blog...

So in summary this winter I had a kid and an orchid... pretty productive winter!

No pictures today

But a little stat update :) Nandu fait maintenant 56 cm, 4,06 kg et a un tour de tete de 39 cm, c'est passionant comme nouvelle non?
Pour les non-inities, ca veut dire que tout va bien, qu'il grandit beaucoup, grossit correctement (il pourrait grossir plus) et a deja la grosse tete :)

For those who don't understand French, this was just an update of Nandu's numbers (we are physicits after all...) So he is now 56 cm tall, 4.06 kg and his head is 39 cm in diameter... He could be a little fatter for his height, but everything is good.

I'll post new picture soon, promise!
