Lego Mania

LEGO.........the word brings back very fond childhood memories. Spending weekends and all holidays with cousins, staying up way beyond bedtime, stealing goodies from grandma's refrigerator after she would sleep, broken nails, scratched and bleeding cuticles from trying to pry tiny lego pieces apart and days spent building lego cities. Given a choice to go back in time, that would be the time I would go back to.
My mom has a huge family made up of 3 brothers and 5 sisters ensuring that I have plenty of cousins. Being an only child, I am particularly close to all my cousins and we meet up regularly even now. But the conversations and games have changed as have we. Now we meet up for a night of pictionary, scattergories or monopoly, while as kids we could keep ourselves busy for days playing hotel, school or lego. 


So when our baby was born 17 months back, the first thought that come to mind was "wow I can now build lego cities with him!" and we bought him his first Lego Duplo set as his first birthday gift. He is just starting to understand the Lego Duplo and maybe we are a tad bit more excited than he is that even the pain of stepping on lego pieces will not stop us! But I truly cannot wait until the day when he has a cupboard full of lego categorized according to colour.....a dream of mine! Definitely plan to do a Lego themed birthday party too!
Looking forward to the Lego Movie which "assembles" worldwide today!

Barnyard Theme 2nd Birthday

Our son turned 2 last month and we decided to throw a Barnyard theme birthday party for him. After the Dr. Seuss themed first birthday party last year, this year we chose a theme he could relate to and enjoy. He can now recognize all farm animals and the sounds they make and Old MacDonald is one of his favourite nursery rhymes. It took weeks and weeks of preparations and that meant burning the midnight oil once again for us working parents, and a sabbatical for me from my blog for over 3 months. Here is all that we did and more.

Invitations:
Were made on photoshop by my husband and were sent out via email and whats app. We used the same invitations as reminders a week before the party for last minute rsvps.


Birthday Boy:
Ronav was dressed in denim overalls and a checked shirt to resemble a farmer in the barn, Mom and dad played their part too, wearing checked shirts and denims.


Barn Entrance:
Our main door was decorated to look like a barn door.

Paper Rosettes, Streamers: Were hand made …

Go Green with Snappi Diaper Fasteners!

If you're planning to go the cloth diaper route, Snappis are a must have! Made in South Africa, they are a great substitute for diaper pins and so much safer too. I cannot imagine trying to fumble around with safety pins while the baby is squirming.I love using my Snappi! This product makes using prefolds almost as easy as using disposables. In fact, they are so easy to use even daddy has figured them out! You can fasten the diaper with just one hand and they really stay. With snappis, I can easily close prefolds, flats, fitted flats, and non-snap fitteds! There's no metal and no chance of poking the baby. They are stretchy, reusable, and extremely durable. I've even washed a Snappi on accident and it was still perfect. The composition is 100% polyurethane ( thus safe for the baby). A single snappi can last you the life of diapering your child (as long as you don't lose it!). And to add to a list of pros, they come in a variety of boy, girl and neutral colors. Also, th…

Dr Seuss themed 1st Birthday!

It seems like yesterday that we brought our son Ronav home from the hospital, but a year has just flown by and all that we are left with are memories and lots of photos!
Since my husband and I are huge Dr Seuss fans, we decided to throw Ronav a themed birthday party to satisfy the child within us. The planning and execution took 2 months of burning the midnight oil as that was the only time we would get after putting Ronav to bed. All the decorations were hand made by us, only the balloons were outsourced. Here's how we did it.
The Invitations: Were sent via what's app and email 3 weeks before the party and was created on photoshop.



Reminders:  Were sent out 4 days before the party to get a better idea of the RSVPs. 

Thing 1 :
Ronav was Thing 1. We customized a T-shirt for him which read "Thing 1".




Mom & Dad of Thing 1 :
Mommy and Daddy got customized T-shirts too. They read "Mom of Thing 1" and "Dad of Thing 1".
