Monday/Tuesday, things are rolling along

Monday morning I awoke to pure happiness in polka dots...

Hariz the cook had gone out all dressed up early in the morning so we decided to go out for breakfast. We headed to McDonald's for the second time in our trip, but this time we had Cailyn and took a rickshaw.

In the early evening Rahul came over to use and abuse me for my English language skills.  He is creating a website and asked for some help.  Here we are, the super think tank!  Yes maam.  Thank you maam, yes sir.

After our power meeting with Rahul we had a few glasses of wine with Baby Alex Jai from Ireland, and of course him mom and her aunt.  We sat in the living room here at the B&B and enjoyed the wine and company.  When we were ready to snap pics of the kiddo's together they both started to complain of wet bums so we called it a night.  We will for sure get some shots of Alex and Cailyn together for all of our memories.

Tuesday we had our photo shoot with Tim.  We went to Lodi Gardens to take family photos.  It was so much fun despite the fact that I despise having my picture taken.  Cailyn wore a new dress from Monnalisa (  in which she looked absolutely adorable!

 Here is Tim the photog in action:

Mark, Tim and baby Cailyn.

We are super anxious to see the photos!  After Lodi gardens we went to Tim's house to shoot more solo photos of Cailyn, and as luck would have it she was awake for all of her solo shoot so I am sure Tim got some great shots of her beautiful blue eyes.    When we arrived home from the photo shoot we had a call from the Canadian High Commission.  They had a few questions about employment history which we answered and now they are running the checks with Canada.  Looks promising that we will have Cailyn's passport Wednesday!  Poonam (our immigration liaison) has our appointment booked in at MHA for Thursday which is super, and so efficient of her!   Wish us luck...

As previously mentioned we are big fans of the restuarant in M Block called Hell.  To give you an idea of the food they offer up, here are the bbq ribs and mashed potatoes and also the dessert pizza! YUM!

Just before dinner Tim sent us these four samples from today...we think they are gorgeous, beyond what we could have imagined!

    I love Mona Lisa ....I bought about 4 outfits there that are just starting to fit and up to age 2. So's hard not to go crazy in that shop.
