April – May 2014
B has grown so much in this past month and he is continuing to learn and mature quite fast.
he started walking backwards somewhere in april, for a few days and didn’t do it much after that. hmm..not as much fun as crawling backwards i assume! oh ya he still crawls backwards now and then and enjoys it!
his first day at playgroup was just not how i had imagined! i thought he would not freely go and cry and stick to me, but instead he just held on to me till he got used to the place (which was for 1 min, literally!) and then ran off, did not even bother to turn around and see if i was following him! playing, running around, screaming excitedly (yes he was the loudest!), it did not look like it was his first day there. i just sat with other moms admiring how B had so easily opened up to the world, interacting with other kids, sometimes being his carefree self, sometimes a bit cautious. And occasionally calling out to me and smiling, telling me relax mamma! i am growing up and having fun, dont worry too much, i am just fine!
all that said and done, growing up comes with its own huge baggage! B’s fussiness is increasing by the day…the outsome? i am learning his new likes and dislikes in food at every meal time. creamy gravies with roti is in, dry dishes is out, potatoes in any form (except fries) is still out, palak paneer in, chicken in, pizza in, plain rice is still in, bananas out, grapes in, recently butter chicken in, dal out, kheer (rice pudding) in, cake out, milk out!
B has reduced his milk intake by almost half! it’s a struggle getting him to finish his morning milk! So now I have started to give him banana milkshake in morning in the hope that a flavour change will help. 3 days down and going good..till his next flavour change!
he has transitioned from 2 day naps to 1, which means hes awake more hours! Oh boy! but thankfully hes flat out by 8pm.
oh he’s recently started this new teddy bear craze! B is soo madly attached to his 2 teddys (one huge and the other medium sized). Cuddles them, kisses them, carries them along with him everywhere, while eating, sleeping..! its funny but also cute how he looks after them, not leaving them alone etc. The teddy’s gone to the park on the swings with him too (thankfully the medium sized one, cant imagine fitting B and the huge one on a swing together!)!
B had his first pyjama party with 8 girls! And he slept at 10.30pm! hehee i forced him to! Ohh his big teddy had joined him here too! 🙂
besides the playing, hes also learning a lot of new stuff. Fruits, veggies, animals, animal noises (meow is meemom for him), names of random stuff around. yes which means his talking has increased even more!
oh talking about talking, don’t be surprised if you call on our landline and B greets you on the phone! he’s answered the phone twice, talking away in his glory. now when the landline rings, i search for B and race to the phone!
the activity….or accident of the month – B had his first major fall last week. bruised his forehead, nose and upper lip! my baby! and M called him little red riding hood, Rudolph the red nosed..! how mean na!
Cannot wait for next month. He turns 18 months! 1½ years old! Party time for sure.
