The naughty little cutie that she is

Can now crawl with jet speed , loves to chase mumma around the house and we sometimes play run and catch game too. Tries to jump down her crib. Walk on the sides of the bed , her arms resting for support. Cries when she wants to sit , but doesnot dare to try. Does not dare to stand without support.

Believes that everything in this world is tastier than the food offered to her. Loves eating toys, garbage, pencils, erasers, paper, banana peel and her fingers. She basically eats everything except FOOD. She is a first grade fussy eater. When she doesnot want to eat , you just cannot give her a spoon full. She will stitch her mouth almost literally and yet keep smiling at you. As the spoon will go near her mouth, she will twitch her nose , like it smells :P. And if at all she wants to eat(very rare scenario) she will climb on you and snatch the stuff and tries to gobble it down with amazing swiftness. Needless to say this is the stuff thats not usually offered to her like maggi :P

Feels its mumma's duty to figure out when she is hungry and rarely demands milk or food.

Loves to bath and dip her hands in the bucket. Claps as soon as you make her sit on her bath bed. Doesnot love to dress up though.

Loves to dance to all kind of music. It may be a title track of some TV show , some movie song or my besoora singing. Shakes her legs , hands , wrists and lifts/ shakes her body ..not in complete cordination though.

Likes to be around her brother without even demanding any attention from him.  Adores him and enjoys his company. When Bhaiya is in mood and there is no Chota bheem on TV the two of them cuddle and giggle for long , else bhaiya will carry her to mumma / dadi saying "lo isse sambhalo". He understands that its his responsibility to take care of her when there is no adult around and gets stressed.

Says bye when ever asked , even when the person she has to say good bye is carrying her in his/her lap.

Demands 110% attention as soon as she sees mumma or papa after work, even though its for just 10 mins.

Enjoys throwing stuff around. Can stand up holding the table and pushes every single thing down. Loves to drag off the table mats or trays and does not care if that lands on her head or not. Claps after throwing any clothes or nappies that rest on her crib.Throws off any toy or other stuff thats on her walking track.

Loves to go out. Jumps all the way during outings. Loves dressing up only when its for an outing.

Gets tickled with slight touching and giggles and make you giggle.

Fill our home with smiles.

Fun times

You know you are going to have some tough  fun time ahead ...

when you suddenly feel something moving near your feet and you thank God for not stepping on that something, and you wonder how she reached there,
When you have to search her in different parts of house all the time,
when you broom and mop your floor twice a day and still feel that its not clean enough coz she always finds some interesting thing to eat,
when you start looking under the table and under the beds,
when you realize that all your doors have stoppers which can even serve as teethers,
when you suddenly start noticing all the wires and ropes in the house,
when you start dusting all the surfaces,
when you find your center table is too low and a tray from it can be easily pulled down,
when you learn to walk with your head down,
when you realize that food thats in your plate is tastier than all the other food that you made,
when you wash your hands, not before and after but during your meals :P,
when you wake up thrice in a night and start looking around.

Birthday Gift

My mom asked Aryan what he wants as his birthday gift and he thought and thought hard and said

ek badi car dila do ..real nahi par jisme main baith paon ..then my mom said that you are too old for those toys

so he goes ..acha phir chota bheem ya doremon Tshirt aur pajama dila do. So I told him ..why dont u go and nani will decide herself :P

Dear Aryan

You will be six in 2 weeks time. In these  6 years I have seen you trasform from a tiny little bundle to a full grown handsome boy. You have changed so much in these years and specifically in the last year. Infact I cannot believe that you could have changed so much in just one year.

Physically , you gained height and weight and lost that babyness from your face. As you transitioned from pre primary to primary you suddenly started looking like one too. You lost 5 of your teeth and your smile now looks so different with those front tooth missing.

On the other aspects , you gained so much confidence in last year. You no longer behave like a little baby at most times. However you still feel shy when there are too many people around , you finally started responding when people ask you questions. You are at ease with your size people and can usually handle your own conflicts with other kids.

Your excitement about everything has become many fold. You are always hyper , excited and happy. You are excited about learning new things and doing new stuff. You can browse and find games on google and figure out how to play them.

You enjoy Kung fu (You will be orange belt this weekend) , cycling (now you can cycle without supporting wheels) , TV :-( (Chota bheem and Doremoen are your favourites) , swimming (You can swim properly across the pool). And you learnt to bully people instead of getting bullied all the time. But the good part is that your sensitive nature prevents you from going to extremes.

You now sleep on your own bed, in our room. And you promise to move to your room as soon as you turn 6 !

You learnt to be a big brother. You care for your little sister all the time. You copy your father when it comes to handling her. You play with her like she is your age.

However there is so much that has not changed. The way you love and like to be loved. I sincerely hope it will remain the same forever. You love us to bits. It really matter to you if I am sad or angry and if thats related to something you did. You still enjoy cuddling with me. You dont wipe off your face when we kiss you. You respond to touch therapy quite well.

You are still so possesive about your friends. You don't want share your best friend with anyone. I hope this changes soon, since its the primary reason for all your fights. I want you to know that you cannot own people.

You still enjoy cooking in your big cooker and you do not share it with anyone. You still help me and the maid with house hold work , be it changing bedsheets , washing clothes in machine , drying them , dusting the house , changing khushi's crib sets or whatever.

I just cannot believe that so much has changed in just an year. May be by next year you will behave like a teenager. Sometimes I want to hold the time in my palm. And at other times I just look at these 6 years spell bound.
