We went to Prague in late September, Hubby's extended birthday celebrations! My first visit to the city and Sunny's second. What a charming city it is, enriched in history and one of the most beautiful capital city we've been too. We were surrounded by gorgeous details all around, just our kind of place & I admired beautiful doors and intricate details to my hearts content. We walked and walked and walked till our feet swelled up & literally fell off, and we ate and ate and ate till our bellies were so full they were ready to burst (absolutely amazing Italian food, yup Italian) and took pictures of everything around to our (my) hearts content :) We lucked out with beautiful weather and gorgeous sunny long days! Here are a few teasers from our trip & a link to the entire album at the end.

We had an absolutely amazing time, and would highly recommend everyone to add this beautiful city to their list of places to (must) visit! :)
What better day than today, on Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Birthday to officially announce to the world, the awaited arrival of the newest member to our family :) I am officially 29 weeks pregnant with our first baby due on 27th Jan, boy or girl we are keeping it a surprise for the day she/he arrives! For now we have officially & lovingly nicknamed the baby 'Woofy' and as I type Woofy kicks me to say a big HELLO to you all!
We are very excited and looking forward to holding our little one for the first time and to leap into the adventurous world of parenthood. Mom & Baby are both doing well and eating and growing by the day, and Dad looks rather too fit and skinny in front of us ;-)
Woofy's Very Special Milestones: Sunny & I were very surprised and thrilled to find out about Woofy's existence on 21st of May 2011 and we took 5 pregnancy tests before we both exclaimed, this should be a solid confirmation! After which we called the unsuspecting grandparents to be who were needless to say surprised, speechless, thrilled & then started to jump up and down in excitement.
On the 4th of July we got to hear the adorable 'Woosh Woosh' heartbeat for the very first time which on the second appointment turned into a 'Woof Woof', hence explaining the nickname. The first time we heard the heartbeat it took us a while to figure out what we are listening to and what it is supposed to sound like, it must have been rather amusing for our Doctor to see our faces and our excitement after hearing it for the first time. It was a very special moment and we both grinned from ear to ear for days after and had our very own little 'Woosh Woosh' song!
(our little thumb sucker... chillaxing!)
And then on the 19th of July 2011 we saw Woofy for the very first time. It was the most exciting day for us to see this little life inside of me sucking its thumb and jumping around all over the place before it went into chillaxing mode, we could not stop giggling and were simply amazed by all of Woofy's antics. But the most precious thing Woofy did was wave at us when the ultrasound technician started the scan and both Sunny and I were stunned, that the baby actually waved at us almost to say 'Hello Mom & Dad.'
I have been able to feel Woofy's movements since my 14th week and now it's almost like a dance inside my belly where we just sit back and watch my tummy bounce around, especially in the evenings and night, so we have a little night owl on our hands. I have been so curious lately and can't wait to find out if we have a little dancer or a football player... we'll just have to wait a little longer to find out!
