9 months old
Today I complete nine months in this world. I have learnt a lot of things in the past few months that I would like to share with you. My mom is super busy and hence I need to write for myself.
During my first few months, I could hardly do anything except feel hungry and sleepy all the time. Now I have developed myself tremendously. My brain is developing at super fast speed and teaching me a lot of things like picking up dirt from the floor and putting it in my mouth. My mum sure hates it but I don’t bother. I give her a toothless smile and she relents. I know how to win her heart.
I keep grandma on her toes all the time and give her a real hard time. Sine my mum is super busy with office work I only have my grandma to play with all day. I want to keep her in my sight all day. I don’t like it when she goes to the kitchen or does some other work. I want to keep playing with her all day. She does that tirelessly and that makes me so happy.
Now she isn’t too happy when I crawl all over the room and slip and hurt myself. But when I do, she picks me up and gives me a kissie and I go on playing again. I have this thing for danger. I love to explore all the dangerous corners and areas around the house where am most vulnerable to getting myself hurt, but I don’t really understand that and hence I crawl over there.
I have also learnt how to stand up with the support of things but I cannot stand for too long and then I slip and fall down. But this is something new and I love to do it all the time. Even when mum and day take me out for a ride, I love to stand on my mum’s lap and watch the cars passing by. I can sit without support now. I don’t like to lie on my back and play anymore.
I love experimenting with things. My highlight of the day is to play with my toys, specially banging them on the floor. I sometimes also chew them but then grandma tells me not to chew the doggie and the ducky since they are too big in size and won’t fit in my mouth.
I haven’t got any teeth yet but mum feels I would be getting them soon since I make the chewing action all the time. She thinks that since I cry every now and then, my gums must be hurting, little does she know that that is just to grab her attention.
I think I will be a foodie when I grow up. I love food and want to try and taste everything my mum eats. She doesn’t let me have her food. I am sure it is much more yummy than the rice and Cerelac that she feeds me. But mum says that I need to have teeth before I can eat that, although she does allow me a taste of everything she eats. I can’t wait to have more.
I am growing out of my clothes everyday now and mum keeps bringing me new clothes. I love them because they are bright and have cute designs on them.
I love to go for long walks with my grandpa in the mornings. I cannot walk yet so my grandpa has to carry me all around the garden. And I just love to see the green trees and leaves and all kinds of plants. I also love watching the pigeons and sparrows fly across the sky. Sometimes they come and sit in our gallery and I am fascinated by their sight. I also love doggies very much.
I love to watch TV with my grandma and my favourite advertisements are the Lux ad (with Abhishek and Aishwarya) and the DOCOMO ad. I simple love them. I drop everything and tune in to the TV when these ads come on. I also love listening to songs but they put me to sleep instantly.
Mum doesn’t let me anywhere near her computer since I love to bang everything. I have asked her to post this on my behalf. If mum gets too busy with her work, I will keep updating you all about my growth and adventures.
