Roshan learned his most important word yet: "touchdown". With the new Eagles offensive line in place, I have a feeling he will be saying it a lot in the fall.

It took us forever to try to capture it on film. Every time we turned on the camera he would just smile and run to it. We were able to trick him with a diversion, but he quickly foiled our plan and again ran to the camera.

Next up: "Touchdown Bears!"

Mother's Day

We had my parents over for Mother's Day weekend. We ended up checking out the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Sausalito (note to all, it turns out that most museums in San Francisco give free admission on Mother's Day). This was basically Roshan's dream come true. He got a chance to run around all over the place, and spent a good 30 minutes splashing water all over himself and anyone who came within a five foot radius of him.

Late night photo shoot

Roshan refused so go to sleep last night. We spent about 30 minutes trying to "convince" him to go to bed, but figured it wasn't worth the fight. Instead, we decided to do a mini photo shoot. As you can tell from this picture, he clearly knows he is getting away with it.

Golden Gate bridge bike ride

Roshan had his first bike ride this weekend! We ended up doing the biking trail from Fisherman Wharf to Sausalito for Sheetal's birthday.

Roshan looked quite comfortable in the bike trailer. As he should, since I ended up carrying him the entire way. To make matters worse, we took a wrong turn and ended up doing one more additional hill just to make it more of a challenge. I was rewarded with several others calling me "Super Dad" on the trail.

Happy New Year!

We wanted to wish you all a fantastic start to the New Year!

Last year was a big year for the Chandra family. We added a new member to the family (hello Roshan!), purchased our first home, visited some new places (Montana, Maui) and even managed to buy a Wii Fit. Basically, we got old very fast.

It is amazing how much has changed in just a year. Roshan alone has grown five times his original size! In honor of this change (and that other major event that took place in 2008...hello Obama), here is an end of year video.

Roshan 11 month video

Roshan officially visited his second state. We spent ten awesome days in Maui for our family vacation. We ate tons of ahi, drank plenty of mai tais, saw lots of fishes, and tasted plenty of sand (at least Roshan did). Roshan also had a chance to show off his new surfer hairdo. He was quite popular with the ladies.

We also had his first real exposure to the ocean. The first day he basically cried every time a wave came in. It was the first time I have ever seen him scared of something. It took about an hour and then he was loving it. We couldn't get him out.

Some milestones:
  • Learned how to high five! All of those hours of training finally paid off (thanks Uncle Ed).
  • He is starting to talk. His favorite phrase right now is "uh oh". Very appropriate.
  • Roshan got a chance to pet his first animal at the Surfing Goat farms in Maui. He decided to use this as an opportunity to kick a goat in the head, slap their ears, and stick a finger in their nose. As you can imagine, he was not loved by the animals.
  • Favorite letter: Letter K. It also duals as his favorite toy.
  • First taste of Pop Rocks. He was very confused.
  • Favorite pastime: watching the washing machine. He can do it for almost ten whole minutes. That is an eternity in baby time.

Roshan's first tooth!


It took a while, but Roshan finally got his first tooth! He has already made good use of it by biting us whenever possible. It is a big relief (we were getting worried he would need dentures), but also eliminates our favorite excuse for his erratic behavior (he was teething). I will definitely miss his old man smile though...
