Alex's first haircut

We went over for our "play day" the other day, and while Ajay stayed to work on his lunch/play some more, I ran over to our hair-lady and had Alex's hair cut. I forgot to ask her to keep the bangs long, so they got trimmed a bit too short for my liking. Oh well, they'll grow back. So here are some shots!

Recent events

Okay, I wrote the "nice day" post, then realized I had some pics on my camera that needed to be uploaded to the computer. So I'll share some recent pics/events with you.
First up, we have the kids opening gifts from Aunt Lisa and Uncle Russ (and Ellie getting her Christmas goodies from us); then Ajay playing in the snow, Alex being cheesy; we went to the zoo yesterday and had a nice time. Alex should've taken a nap in the stroller but he didn't. He stayed awake - he was very mellow, but awake the whole time. Ajay enjoyed running around w/ his buddies Jacob and Josiah (so much so, he's hanging out with them again tomorrow!); and lastly, a pic of Ajay helping me make pancakes, and Alex being a goofball while eating some Cheerios. (I tried to comment at each section of photos, but it wasn't working out right. Also, the order of photos got switched, so each section is a bit out of order chronologically. But it's pushing midnight, so I'm not going to mess with it!)

A nice day

It was nice weather today, wasn't it? Ajay went outside and played for quite a long time. Alex played in the dining room where he could see Buhbuh through the window. Every once in awhile, he'd stand up and bang on the glass and yell Buhbuh, then he'd sit back down and play some more.
Parents as Teachers had their Winter Wonderland this evening, so we took the boys. Ajay got to do some painting, glueing, ice skating (wax paper under his shoes on the carpet!), fishing (magnet at the end of the pole/string to catch laminated fish w/ a paperclip), etc. Ajay sorta hung out and tried to eat a glue stick. I didn't have my camera. The batteries were in the charger - Alex is getting his first haircut tomorrow, so I want to be sure to have enough power to get plenty of shots! I'll be back tomorrow to share those with you :)

I haven't forgotten!

No, I haven't forgotten that I have a blog. I just keep forgetting to actually come here :)
Most of you (all of you?) who come to this blog already got the "updates" from India, so theres not much I can say about that.
Ajay is glad to be back at school. He took some gifts for his friends in class last Thursday - they all got a balloon, a piece of gum and a pack of chocolate biscuits (cookies).
Alex is doing more standing these days. He just has this look of wanting to walk written all over him. He'll lean forward, but his legs just won't move, so he falls forward. He doesn't get angry, tho, so that's nice. He is also wanting to be anywhere Brother (BuhBuh) is. Yesterday during naptime, Ajay went down first, and Alex crawled over to Ajay's bedroom door, stood up against it, and started slapping the door, yelling "Buhbuh! Buhbuh!"
Here are a couple of shots of the boys...Alex is being all cheesy while eating peas and Ajay is finishing off the last drops of my Dr. Pepper.
