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!
