Aditi in Person

Last evening was a blogger meet of a different sort- to introduce Aditi in person to the local blogger friends.

Lavs, IBH, Minka, Adya's mom, Timepass and H from Australia made it with kids and a few hubbies joined in as well. Itchy and her men had already come over anyway.

Thanks Lavs for stepping in and coordinating it for me.

Aditi's grandpa helped set up a slide show of her pics with an apt song( from the book I am going to be a big sister) much to Anushka's delight. My mom managed the food and a good time was had. Must mention that I got very thoughtful gifts from all, for the baby and even for me- guess which book- Bringing up Vasu!!

I was sorry that I could not get anything for all the kids but I did manage to go eco friendly with the bag from Small steps- an interesting initiative. Anush insisted on giving the gift as soon as the guest gifted her or Aditi.

Anush was so taken up with Little Buddha that she told Lavs they could exchange him for Aditi. Broke my heart a little .

But later that night she told me that no one should take Aditi.:-))...in keeping with two earlier instances when she shed tears when our driver and a friend asked if they could take Aditi home with them.

They look sooooooo adorable!!
I checked out that website, its lovely!I've written to them. How did you get the bags?I think its a great gift!I have a similar bag that I bought in Germany a few years ago. It goes with me everywhere, it doesn't look too great but it does its job :) I've wanted to get bags like that for my relatives and friends for a long time.

Beautiful header Art! Looks like a fabulous evening you all had!

Lavs said...

You are most welcome Art. The pleasure was mine!!!

I thought we were a bit too boisterous but Aditi was an angel sleeping right thro the evening.

I can see that she is going to be a tall child just like you.

Loved your gift. Only in the night, hubby showed me what the gift was-trust you to pick up something innovative!!

Art - Thanks for the lovely evening and the gift, it is so thoughtful. As for the kids, I can assure you that the chocolates and wafers were a bounty! Adya kept telling her grandparents how small Aditi is and how she can't have toffees coz she has no teeth *sad expression*
