Birthday Cakes

This year for hubby's birthday I made a milk cake.
9'' inch cake
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder

Beat the eggs for 3-4 min, add sugar, add vanilla extract. Meanwhile sift the flour and baking powder
and mix dry ingredients into the wet. Add them in the pan and bake for 20 mins. Once cooled cut into 2 halves. In a microwave bowl mix the condensed milk, evaporated milk and heavy whipping cream and microwave for 1 min. Pour it nicely over the two halves after poking holes in them.
Let it sit overnight in the fridge. Assemble next day and decorate(optional) and it will be ready to be consumed.

Sand VB Tournament-2014

Team BM won the runners up title this year 2014 at the Sand VB Tournament. Everyone went with kids early but Ritvik had a bday party and I did not want to go early with the baby, so we left him at 4 for his party and then me, baby and mommy went to the park. We saw the semi-finals which our team won comfortably. Then there was the women's finals which I did not watch as I had to pick my son from his party. We returned and the match started. We won the 1st set and was almost winning the second but 2-3 mistakes cost our team dearly and we lost the 2 sets against them.

So ended up being Runner's up this time.

More next year.

1 Month Baby

Tomorrow it will be a month since baby Bumshika(baby girl) was born.
So far it has been really easy peasey to manage her. She has been feeding well/sleeping well, not at all fussy and generally giving me a great rest time.

Sometimes at night if she sleeps at 11 we have to wake her at 6 for a feed that literally means I get sleep for about 6-7 hours at night.
She was back to her birth weight in a week and in her 2 week check-up she was 10oz and we also started tummy time for her.
Her umblical cord fell off the 10th day but the area was still pussy and bloody and so we had to take more care not to touch water, we have been giving her bath after 3 weeks and she has been sleeping well post her bath and also noons. Normally evenings she will be awake with short naps in the evenings and then deep sleep from 11:30 - 8.

Big brother loves his baby sister and even invented a song for her, Brothers love their sisters, I love my cutie sister Ritiha la la la la.........

He always wants to kiss her, hug her, squeeze her, try to play with her............

Love both my babies.....umaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
