This Park is mostly used for music concerts. It has all wooden playground.
Publishing this old video after almost 3 years. It still makes me wonder how cute he was and his every behavior was. Watch him answering to all my questions in his sweet little ways. He was about 1.8 years old when this video was shot. One weekend afternoon I was testing his new skills.
I ask him what sound a sheep makes and he doesn’t answer but ends up sneezing saying “Aksheee..!”. His twinkling eyes and smile know that I was kidding when i say “Does it say Akshee?”. This video always brings a smile on all of our faces.
All types of vegitables and fruits are thrown from the floats. Vegitable vary from lemons to cabbages. Throws also include beads and toys similar to Mardi gras.
This year it is very cold and holi cant be played outdoors hence Holi celebration was postponed by a month. So holi celebrations are towards march end in Metairie (where most of Louisiana plays holi). We couldnt stop ourselves from having a small get together and apply some colors
Kids had their share of fun too. Last year they were all so tiny.. They are all growing fast
Rishab was curiously (may be he was wondering why are we applying this color) applying color to me.
Rishab attended following mardi gras parades with us.
It was relatively colder than last year. We went to Covington Lions parade quite early and enjoyed walking on the streets with lot of people around in festive mood.
Rishab is learning cycling (or Tricycling?) these days. Although its very cold these days (around 5-10 degree C) Rishab never hesitates to go out in the cold.
He calls it bishlow. He still doesn’t understand how to cycle, but likes it when it moves. He will eventually learn it.
Rishab attended Anushka’s birthday this weekend. He sure seemed to enjoy the company of lot of kids around and playful atmosphere.
This is Anushka’s second birthday and last year we attended her first birthday too. He did poke his finger in the cake and taste how it was even before the cake was cut and so did Anushka.
He seem to have learnt what a b’day cake is, how to blow the candle and many more things.
He demands for Marshmallows often and so far it his favorite. We give him plenty as they arent as sweet and sticky as other chocolates and feel healthy.
If something slips or drops from him hand he says “Oh no” or “Oh Man..!”
When he wants to watch TV, brings the remote to us and says press(the button to start the TV)
He watches cartoons regularly and the most common channels are Sprout, Discovery kids, Disney, Cartoon network and Boomerang. If we want to change the channel, first we have to switch on the laptop and start Pluto. This is the only way to divert Rishab’s attention from the TV.
As of today (December 13, 2009) Rishab’s vocabulary contains these words. There are lot more words which arent documented here.
- Tatta = Pluto
- Kakka=Duck, Quack
- Zeeheee=Zebra, Giraffe
- Babba=Bubble gum, Bubbles
- Aash(He twists his tingue for this)=Ice
- Aja=Grand father
- Affan=Change the channel(of TV)
- Gidda, Diggidiggidiggi=Guitar
Will try to make a video of his words and add here.

Chook buch=School bus
One day he was saying “PomPonk” while watching TV, Although i knew the meaning but still i asked him
“What is PomPonk”
I was stunned with his answer. He says
He does know how to correct it but keeps saying it because it sounds funny.
So parents, we got to keep telling them the right words and they keep correcting it or else they will continue the same way till they go to school.
By the way he has corrected 90% of the words documented earlier and he is forming sentenses with lot of words (although he needs to correct his grammar).
