We bought a house! (actually, a condo)

We are now the proud owners of the bottom floor from this remodeled Victorian mansion. The developers ripped everything out and made each floor a separate condo. 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1259 square feet, and cost waaaaaay too much money.

We are now in a new neighborhood called NOPA (north panhandle). I don't think that is an official name, but it makes it sound better than old Western Addition. We are sad to leave Noe, but excited to be in a new place close to lots of friends.

This was not an easy process. As many of you know, we have been looking for a new place for almost 8 months. We must have seen over a hundred places during the time (a lot of San Francisco inventory is crap). Then, after we finally find a place, the mortgage market collapses with the fall of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Fortunately, it all worked out.

We are incredibly excited...and now officially are rooting for a housing recovery. We hope to have all of you over soon!

Road trip

Roshan officially completed his first road trip. We drove down from San Francisco to Los Angeles so Roshan can finally meet all of the family friends in Pasadena and Irvine. Both families threw some great Roshan welcome parties. It was quite a turnout. Roshan met almost 300 people in a single three day period!

Roshan also just turned 6 months old. A few new milestones:
  • He can sit up now for over 20 minutes without any trouble. Although, it still ends with a "timmmmmmber."
  • Favorite foods: Peas and Green beans. Must be the Deshpande genes.
  • He's a screamer. Uh oh.
  • He found his toes. It is a matter of time until he shoves them in his mouth.
  • Roshan has discovered the ability to rip out flowers and leaves. Those are definitely Chandra genes.
  • Roshan got his first laptop and cell phone. It was only a matter of time.
