8mths 3wks: Am loving it....crawling is fun, fun, fun!


Am sure you all must b thinking as to why I am writing so often all of a sudden, this month :) There is one more breaking news to share. I started crawling just 3 days back..yippeee!

On July 27th, mumma finished talking to my naniba and dada in India, in the morning and started to read one of my fav. picture books 'Merry Christmas, Peter Rabbit' to me. She opened the last page which has a nice pop-up christmas tree and put the book a little away from me to see my reaction. And since I get really excited and want to touch it whenever I see it, I took 3 leaps towards the book to touch it. Mumma didnt believe I crawled and was super excited, so she put the book further away. I crawled furthermore and she screamed in excitement "Anay betu to crawl karto thayi gayo!!" (Anay started crawling..yay).

That evening, when daddy, kaka, ba and dada wanted to see me crawling again, they put a cell phone in front of me and I sportily crawled from one end of the room till the other for them. Since then I ve been crawling all around and have also figured out that things that are away are also within my reach now. I start crawling once I see something and decide to get it. Mumma has taken few videos too, which you can enjoy.

I also have learnt to wave good-bye with my right hand. I keep doing that even while eating on my high chair. Mumm..mumm, ba ba, da da are my fav. words nowadays while eating and otherwise. Mumma says I ve started to eat a lot better than before. I eat fruits, yoghurt, daal, veggies and rice n oatmeal cereal everyday. I tasted sevaiya-kheer last week (an Indian dessert) and it was so delicious that I kept asking for more! Daddy and mumma agree that their love for sweets has rubbed onto me too :) I also like to eat salted n sweet cookies.

Thats about it for now, more later. Stay tuned for more excitement.

8mths 3wks: Mum, mum, mum, mum, mum .....

Hi All,

It's me again. How are you all doing?

I have some great news to share with you all, I have started to speak some words. It is so exciting! I started speaking mum, mum, mum, ... on 21st July and have continued that since then. Mostly I do this while having food, how smart :) Slowly, I have also picked up some other words like da da da da da, ba ba ba ba ba, .... Speaking is so much fun. Everyone at home mumma, daddy, ba, dada, and kaka are really excited.

8mths 2wks: Ready, set,...........go

Hi all,

How is everyone doing? I am doing great and having fun exploring everything. I will start off with this really cute pic of me.

These past few weeks have been a lot of fun. First, was a short 3-day trip for mumma's Bday, where I visited an outlet mall for the first time. I also went to the swimming pool to catch some sun. I also met a lot of people, who thought I was really cute, I am not bragging or anything, it's just what they said :D. I also had some nice treats when we were out. I had sweet yogurt, bread n milk, some waffle with syrup, etc., which brings me to the second big news for the month.

I have started to eat almost everything, be it rice n daal, khichadi n kadhi, roti, yogurt, ice cream (yummmmmmmmyyyy), cake, lentils, soup, cheerios, banana, mangos, peaches, strawberries, cookies, goes on and on. I absolutely love ice cream. Just yday I didn't feel like eating my own food, but then Ba was eating ice cream and you guessed it, I suddenly got hungry :) Mumma says I have inherited that from her.

I am very close to crawling now, it is like being in the ready->set position, so will be going anytime. I took two leaps yday, but still need to get better. My third tooth is also close to coming out.

Finally, the last big news for the month is that we bought a slide, see-saw, and swing combo for me and Anshbhai. Dad, kaka, and dada were working for 3 hours yday to put it together. I think they are going to be done today. I took a test ride on the slide and the swing and it is amazing. We are gonna have so much fun.

I will be uploading more pics real soon. Thank you all for staying tuned.
