My 30th in Albufeira: A Holiday in Portugal with a Toddler!

During the third week of October, Suraj, Savya and I travelled to Algarve, Portugal. Suraj insisted we celebrate by 30th birthday in some way. We booked last minute (like, 3 days in advance) through Expedia and flew via RyanAir. We had warm weather and stayed at an all-inclusive resort called Hotel São Rafael Suites.  Savya…

Product Review: NUNA’s IVVI Pushchair

My dear expectant and established mothers, fathers, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends… let me tell you a true story.  I once met a lady who told me she had 7 strollers, prams, and pushchairs packed inside a two-story flat with her partner and 5 children. I know it sounds like the beginnings of, “I met an old…

Savya’s “Over the Rainbow” 1st Birthday Party!

Hey All! So Savya turned 1 and we threw him a little party. Well, to be honest, we weren’t going to do anything. From my side of the Nepali culture, we aren’t supposed to celebrate until the child is 2 years old, but Suraj’s side is okay with it. Because my Mom wants to have…

Halo Bassinest {Review}

When setting up Savya’s nursery, I came to the realization that he was going to need to be by my side for the first few months. I started looking around but nothing clicked all of my buttons, except for the Halo Bassinest.   The Halo Bassinest was my first choice when it came to a bedside…

I’m quite excited to have a little guy to play with. Does he account for lack of sleep? Oh, absolutely. However, I have some great corrector…

Mom Life!

I’m so sorry I haven’t had a chance to update much lately. What a tumultuous month! I can’t believe I’m a Mom to this little guy who has me and Suraj wrapped around him finger. Although exhausted, we are absolutely loving this new chapter in our lives. I know new parents say this but whoah,…

Nursery, aka “Baby Room” update

So as long as I can remember, we have been referring to the nursery as “the baby room.” Yep, even before there was a baby to go in it. This is because the wallpaper in the room had this strangely yellowed Peter-Rabbit-meets-Classic-Winnie-the-Pooh theme. Sound cute? Nope. It was weird. Weird and peeling. Peeling is icky. I really…

REVIEW: THE BABY SHOW

I first heard about The Baby Show through a colleague of my husband. He and his wife had attended this trade show of baby goodies and stocked up on all their baby essentials at fantastic prices. So many vendors, and three days to attend. Suraj and I decided it would be a good idea to attend…

Baby Hiccups

Today, Suraj and I went for a scan to see how my amniotic fluid levels are doing. Last week they were on the low side, so taking extra precaution, we scheduled a check-up for this morning. Good news! Amniotic fluids are normal. Phew! Whatever the case that it went down, I’m glad it’s back up…
