Veebee turns 1

So, this Saturday, Veebee turned 1. He is taking a few tentative steps, but crawling is still the preferred mode of mobility. He is so different from Chip. Chip is passionate, spontaneous and sensitive. Veebee observes, gauges. Even at 12 months, he reactions are well thought. He is also not be easily cowed. Will fight back and assert himself, however tinily. And he has the most magnificent scowl!

Abandoning my baking tradition, I did not bake a cake for Veebee. I hope he does not hold that against me. But BigGeek more than made up for the lack of home-made cake by blowing a ton of balloons. Menu was burritos because Chip and I called Veebee a burrito when he was just-born and wrapped up like one. Veebee was mostly scowling at the party, but clapped his hands and was puzzled when everyone started singing the Happy Birthday song. But all in all it was a good day for him. Wish you oodles of love, Veebee. I should post pics soon. The second-baby syndrome is in full swing here!

Chip is back

Time: After Dinner, table clearing time.
Chip (to BigGeek): Can I help you?
BigGeek: The best way you can help me is go upstairs and take a shower!
Chip: That's not helping you! That's doing you a favor!!!
Chip (to me): I want something sweet, frozen and that has at least one artificial ingredient in it for desert!!!

5 days shy

So here I am once again. 5 days shy of my 2 years of non-blogging. A lot happened in those two years. Most importantly, we have another addition. Second version of Chip :) But this one looks more like me, I'd like to think. Unlike Chip who, if you remember (don't blame you, if you don't) is a spitting image of his dad. I have to come up with a nickname for this little dude now. And he turns one end of this month!
