Asha wakes up around 7:00am on most days which is not bad. Every once in a while though I hear the baby monitor crackle with loud babbling, singing, and callings of "mammy" and "daddy" even before the break of dawn. 5:00-5:30am wake-up call is not ideal for parents who are nightowls, and yet we never seem to learn our lesson.
This morning I took a peek at the screen on the baby monitor and I could see her eyes glowing back at me like in a sequel to The Paranormal Activity. She knows I am on the other end looking at this and her message is always loud and clear - may be you shouldn't have watched three episode of the Tudors on Netflix and just gone to bed!
I headed downstairs to get her and noticed that her pajamas were wet. A leaky diaper...no big deal. I turn on the lights to change her and to my horror see giant red stains on the sheets and her bottoms. There is no worse way to greet your child then to see bloodstains dotted all over the place. In a controlled but assertive voice I start yelling for Devang and he runs down immediately and sees first the panic on my face and then the red stains.
When I undo the diaper I see a bloody red Motherload and upon closer inspection find tiny speckles of black beans and green peppers. Hahaa..it's just enchiladas from dinner last night....haahaa! Devang examines and confirms. Damn you red dye # whatever and why are you in my enchilada sauce?
Worst 30-seconds of life over and out! I have never been so wide awake so early and so quickly.

For a second I had imagined that this whole hair cutting business will be a nightmare given that Asha doesn't like to sit still, especially not in a new place with new gadgets around her. But yet again, she surprised me with her coolness. The whole process was so much fun; she didn't cry once. She mostly sat still with the help of a spray bottle (she kept spraying herself in the face and laughing loudly). It was bittersweet to lose her soft curls but I am totally digging her new short cut. Another First checked off the list; how quickly my baby grows.

|A perfectly picturesque DC night showcasing the White House.|
|Josh and Toby scheming.|
|Passing the note, Leo McGarry|
|Donna helping herself to the conversations in Josh's office.|
|Charlie trying to catch a snow flake?|
|Sam pulling an all nighter and revising the speech for the 15th time! He is such a perfectionist!|
|Just like President Bartlet stopping and sharing some absurd, random, but scholarly fact in the middle of an important discussion.|
