MFH in making

Ever since I saw this post at Priyanka's, I have been wanting to introduce Ojas to colors, but somehow it never happened... then the other day while shopping for a gift for a new born I found this product from Crayola and thought of trying it

I just gave the tubs and the sheet to Ojas and waited to see what he will do... and I was in for a surprise because he looked at them for 2 minutes and then figured out that there some colors coming out of it... He figured out on his own how to hold them and how to rub on the paper for the color to come out...

He would color with one then leave it and pick up another... I was also surprised at how he preferred one over another... orange was the winner in the starting but now purple is the clear favorite

These moments make your heart swell with pride and then u forget all about the stubbornness :)

the maestro at work

does it need more work or its done?

Ok I am done and this certainly needs applaud

And this is the masterpiece

happy or sad?

So what is a mom supposed to do when her 17-month (ok almost 18 month) old comes to her shows his nails and says nails cut...

should she be proud that her sons knows what are nails and that they are grown and they should be cut and finally communicates this or be ashamed of herself that she didnt see that it needs cutting :)

Splash Splash

We went to a friends house for a brunch, it was a hot day and the children wanted to have a dip in the pool... So the older children accompanied with their daddy's (the mommy werent prepared with their gears)... now seeing all children jump in the pool... my little prince wanted to go to... we had no swimming diaper and this was the first time he would have gone in the pool... but the children pool was pretty shallow so we decided to take him in and what a blast he had.... he took to water like a fish

After some 1 hour in the pool he still didnt want to come back

PS: this post has been lying in my drafts since almost two months as I didnt have the snaps with me... these days he goes to the pool almost everyday like a pro... swimming diaper, tube and the cap in place :)

Emotional Blackmail

is a technique that Ojas seems to have mastered off late...

These days whenever I scold him a little and tell him if u do this mumma wont talk to u... he comes and gives me paari (cups my face with both hands and brings the hands down), gives me a tight hug literally squeezes me with sound and then gives me kisses on left cheek first, then the right cheek and then on the lips...

now tell me how can anyone be angry with him post that

Ready for school ya?

Yesterday evening the conversation in our house hold went like this

Me: mumma loves u oju
Oju : huhn
Me: say I love u
Oju : looow
Oju : looow
Oju : loow
Me : ok then whats ur name
Oju : Oju

and with this everyone was stunned silence in our house for a minute and then came the jubilation...

everyone asked him the question at least 3 times and he obliged confirming that he indeed knows his name is Ojas/Oju and it was not by fluke that he replied...

this is making me really happy because no one ever taught him that... mumma is proud baby :)

as massi says u ready for school now lol

Smart 17

If this month can be called anything it has to be smart, u have shown us smartness in everthing... sometimes u have even behaved too mart for ur own good lol

U have learned so many new words that its unbelievable...u have a word for almost everything now... u have become the constant chatterbox of the house and even starting to put two words together and use sometime like kaha hai (kahan hai), aa jaao, go out (the favorite one)... and i can see what everyone was saying coming soon... our wish that u should keep quite some time

Now that I am at home you are truly becoming a mumma's boy, though I take secret pleasure in it too but man its not funny.... when I am sitting on my laptop and he is around he pulls my finger so hard that sometimes I feel that my finger will go with him if I dont :) there are times when I cant even go to the loo, u stand outside the door keep banging it and shouting mumma mumma till I come out... sigh

Your motor skills are improving quite a lot now, u can open and close almost all containers effortlessly now (screwing ones including), u love playing with ur stacking drums, u open them close them and are able to place it on top of one another all of them... and that leaves your mumma grinning with pride

You love making tower of your building blocks and join till 10 of them together to make a tower....

Some time back V aunty gifted u an animal set and now u recognize all animals in it, what is a zebra,loin, elephant, rhino, giraffe,hippo... when we ask u to bring one the named animal u without fail bring that one and this we taught u only twice :) of course there are times when u dont want to play this game and that time the first animal we ask u, u smartly bring all of them and give it to us :)

U have also started to learn animal sounds now, u do it well for cat, lion and dog... say cat u start meaow same for lion (sheru) and dog....

Eating for you still is a thing which should not be done... sigh but its ok am taking it easy though somewhere a little tensed as u are dropping percentiles...

Another major thing that happened this month was your introduction to TV, u had not seen TV till last month and mumma had thought of slowly introducing u to it after u become 18 months but selfish mumma and dada couldnt compromise on IPL and hence u see TV now :) the IPL matches.... and seeing IPL u have also started to play cricket with ur dada....its so cute to see u holding bat and flying it in air.... my youngest cricket player :) but guys any suggestions for good videos to start with?

Now wasnt this a smart month :)

PS: I am yet again late for this post... and this time I dont even have an excuse... sigh
