Last month has been quite eventful for B. And for us. B’s Fever, cold, cough, my throat infection, our lack of food for 3 days, his walking, late nights, dancing, talking etc. it was a long tiring month.

February saw B down with a cold and cough, and then a week later again high fever, cold and cough. Those were the sleepless nights for me with B’s coughing sessions every hr on the hour the whole night. Thanks to wattpad for helping me survive those days and nights! Oh and not to mention the fussy eating sessions. Can’t blame him to have any taste after all those meds! But my strong boy fought and is back to his eating sprees!

And now for some lighter, happy news! He’s walking! Alone! Full on! Yess! Haha he took his time but now that he is walking he just doesn’t want to stop! He refuses to hold our hand anymore and will just go wondering where ever he wishes to. You call him to follow you, and he will just turn away and go his way. Oh and he loves climbing stairs. Wherever he sees them, he will drag you to it, hold your hand and start his happy journey up and down!

He’s learning quite a few things here and there. So far he has learnt to say babu (baby), water, car, cap, light, bag, sun, socks, shoes, turtle, Maula. he will point at them and scream out their name excitedly.

He’s found this new happiness in holding spoons and socks and roaming around the house! Don’t ask! But there were days when he has slept holding pens, socks, balm bottle! He’s still really attached to socks. Not anyone’s socks. Just his.

I just realised a few weeks back that his two-finger-sucking habit has gone! Maybe it stopped sometime in Cambay because I don’t remember him doing it when we came back to Dubai this second time. Yay finally!

It’s so cute seeing him do his little dance when the music comes on! Haha daddy says he looks like those battery-operated dancing dolls shaking their waists and dancing! My belly dancer. Oops I meant my hrithik roshan! And now he also dances if he likes some food he is eating or just feels happy. you laugh at him, and he will laugh along with you!

Oh and he also dances when his nursery rhymes are on. His all time fav being baba black sheep. Oh how happy he gets when the sheep comes on the screen. He starts clapping and imitates the sheep’s sound so near-perfectly! In fact he associates Masi and her room by baba. The min he sees her or enters her room, he starts baba!

He’s now onto straw bottles for his water and milk. It was an easy transition for him. He’s also started on cow milk. Started the transition when I reached Dubai and maybe in a week he will be fully on cow milk. Finally no more carrying hot water and formula everywhere.

He now refuses his bland food and enjoys our food minus the chili. Gone are those boiling, steaming veggies days. Thank God!

He loves his teeth-brush time. He gets so happy seeing his toothbrush. Obviously he swallows the paste at every chance he gets. And then gives me his sad look when I tell him it’s over. Haha my drama king!

And now the highlight of last month. You know how people say to keep doors and cabinets locked around toddlers. So if you don’t have locks on doors, you will find clothes, bottles and even all your shoes out! And a happy satisfied toddler sitting in the middle of it all!

Phew, he’s growing so fast, learning so much, and reacting in ways which always surprise us! Loads more stuff in store next month. I am sure!



Coz it’s ur bday M..coz it’s ur special day today..this post is for you my M!

Remember the 100 reasons I love you video I made you for our 1st anniv? Well now you get 100 reasons I hate you..ok not hate maybe let’s say don’t like. And also maybe not 100, that’s too many.. And you are not that bad too! 😉 So let me just start the list and then see how many reasons we get in the end. So here I go.. Read on!

Reasons I don’t like you

1) Why are you so unromantic at times (most of the times) that I end up getting mad at you! (Or do you do this on purpose???)

2) How can a guy be so calm and patient and not lose it at all? Not even once? When do I get to see you angry? Even a little bit..

3) I remember how your wardrobe used to be full of only black and blue! I dint like that. I still don’t like part of it ( you get the hint of what’s going to happen when I come yea?!)

4) You can stay awake for Football and manutd matches even if it’s late at night but not for my Hindi movies!

5) Why is it that you Cook like a chef in my absence but show a dumb face (well most of the time) when I am around??

6) Who sleeps at 10.30pm on a weekend night??

7) I totally don’t like how B always clings to you the min he sees you! (But now I will actually love it, he’s getting a handful by the day!)

Hmmm…Sigh dint know it would be so hard to make this list. Haven’t even reached 10..! Ah got one!

8) You can get up at 6am on a weekend to go play some sport at 8, but won’t do it if I asked you to for my work! (Not that I would get up at 6 but that’s beside the point..)

9) I hate, totally hate your one word oki text replies to my 10 lines!

10) I don’t like the fact that I am again not with you on your bday, to wish you, to gift you, to bake for u, to see your reaction on reading this! And it better be more than your oki!!

I think I will stop at this, (not coz I can’t think of more points, no no) but it’s your bday, let’s give you a break! 😉


P.S. You can have a look at the 100 reasons I love you video again for an ego boost! 😉
