Flirt

As some of u mentioned in the previous post that he is going to grow up to be a flirt... I think he decided to give me a proof... Yesterday night we had gone to a wedding and he walked upto a 14 month old girl, first shook hands with her... then after 5 mins hugged her and then 5 mins later gave her a peck on the cheek and then there she kissed him back... so sweet isnt it...

unfortunately I had lost my cell the same day and couldnt click any pics....

Being Fair

Ojas decided to surprise us yesterday... he actually does little each time he does something new but this time he surpassed himself...

He got this keyboard as gift on his birthday


The other he and N were playing with this sitting on the cot in the hall and the child in me woke up, I went to N had a friendly fight and brought it with me to sofa... After a minute he saw me, saw N... got down from the cot walked right up to me... took the keyboard... went back to N and just gave it to him... nothing else just handed the keyboard to him and started playing with something else

Now he was just being fair right?

My Birthday Party

7th Dec was my 1st birthday and I had a blast... The celebrations started on 4th when my nanu and badi mummy came from Delhi for my bday... I went to my nanu immediately but with badi mummy main those bhav khaaye....

Then on 6th evening my tata, one more dada and dadi and prakash uncle arrived for the party and then 7th on evening my dearest Isha massi arrived along with one nana-nani and more nani from delhi... oh god I am totally confused... so many nana-nani's and so many dada-dadi's... uffff

My mumma wanted to take me to SoS Village to distribute some goodies and food there but dad thought I am too young for that and said we will do it from next year, mumma then went by herself on Wednesday and donated some goodies there...

I kept playing with so many people from morning and I even eat the sooji halwa that badi mummy made for my birthday...

And then in the evening the party started... mom-dad had called a photographer to click snaps of the party and he came early at home to click my snaps, after all I was the hero of the day...

see how cute I am looking....





and then me, mumma and dad got ready for the party... I dressed up in a black suit (I refused to wear the jacket though... it was too hot).... and someone in the party told me that I am looking Salman Khan :) here we are all three dressed to go to the party


The party hall was decorated with noddy and characters and ballons...




Lots of people gave me gifts and i took them so happily, i actually wanted more....



I made friends

and one girlfriend too :)


There was a tattoo artist also at the party, mummu wanted me also to get a tattoo but I didnt want to sit there... why waste time there is so much to enjoy...


Then there was a huge bouncer, all my friends had lots of fun on it



I went on the bouncer too...


And there were a lot of games which I couldnt play, next year I play them all...




And then it was cake time...





BTW did u notice mumma put me my jacket now... no check this pic out...


Mumma had also kept one album of mine for people to see my first year progress and also one scrap book in which people can write me wishes... the idea is that when I grow up I can read the same... everyone loved my pics after all I am so cute



and at the end here me with my family...
this one is both my lovely massi's, nanu and badi mummy

and this one my dadi, bua, uncle, didi and bhaiya

and thats my chennai tata


And did I tell u I got lots and lots and lots of gifts, I love some, I ignore some but for that I will ask my mumma to tell u...

Happy Birthday Prince

I know this is a delayed post and I am feeling so guilty for this but I was like drowned in the party preparations and handling guests at home and to top it all there was a sudden flood of work in office.

So my prince turned 1 on Sunday 7th December, 2008. If you ask me I really cant believe the very fact that he turned...it feels like only yesterday when he was born and he is officially a toddler now... times moves fast...

But all through the first year he has been a darling baby an absolutely adorable nice chap (actually which baby isnt it)

The year has been a roller coaster ride and we have really enjoyed it all through... shouting at times, laughing sometimes and crying too....

In the past one year my little baby prince u have come a long way to just lying at one place when u were born to not lying still even for a minute now... He is walking rather I should sday he is running because that's what he does... both hands up in the front moving up and down and he running as fast as he can is a sight that steals my heart away and everyone's who sees like u that...

He is a really smart chap and a drama king already... he knows exactly what he needs to do get stuff from whom, to dadi he will simply go and start whimpering to be carried in godi... with massi he makes a puppy dog face and gets whatever he wants to... with heartless mom and dad the poor guy is having a little tough time though :) but he manages blackmailing them too most of the time with hugs and kisses... when I take something from him and he wants it back he very sweety comes sits in my lap, gives me a hug then a kiss and then looks at the thing he wants back... now tell me who can resist....

and the drama is at the highest display at time of food... the minute he is in his high chair or he sees his food bowl, he is sleepy no matter how much he has slept already he starts rubbing his eyes pulling his hair and sometimes even faking a yawn... and if that doesn't work he has a stronger drama... he tries vomiting like gestures... take him out of that chair, take the food away and all the sleep and vomit just go away along with the food :) the day he eats atleast one meal properly I feel like jumping in joy....

the other thing he is doing which I simply cant get over is clapping... he has learned to clap so cutely, u tell him Oju clap and thak he starts clapping and the best is... if he does something like balle balle or kicking the ball or eating his biscuit he expects us to clap and if we don't he leaves everything and claps for himself.... BTW he is really kicking the ball very well too :)

the other thing he loves to do is to be in kitchen... he opens the lower drawer... takes out all the utensils, and sits in that himself :) if u leave the kitchen door open he will reach there in a minute from any part of the house...

His dadi says he is a really smart kid basically any new thing u need to teach him only once or twice and he picks it up sometimes he picks it up just looking at u... the other day we weer all sitting and I saw him rubbing his thumb and the finger together and was surprised that how did he pick that up and why is he doing it and then I saw my sis was doing just the same and he was looking at her and imitating her... my little monkey

Happy first birthday my little prince your mom and dad love a lot... I hope u are as naughty as this forever :)

PS: we had a blast of a party and the details and the pics in the next post have tooooooooooooo much work to finish

ur heart walking outside ur body

Ojas has been very sick since Monday... now Ojas has had his share of not being well before.... when he was small he had reflux and used to throw every now and then sometimes even twice a day... blocked nose was his best friend from birth till about 4 months and then he had a diarrhea and fever attack when he was about 7 months but I have seen him like this... my heart is aching since Monday there are multiple times I have cried, just hugged him tight and had tears rolling down my checks...

I was in office on Monday when my mil called me saying that he seems to be warm... I told her to check the temperature and it was about 100.6 I asked to give her some crocin and told her will come home a little early and see if there is a need to take him to the doc... I had a couple of meetings lined up for the day so got busy and couldn't leave office till about 4:30 and when I reached home he had some 102 fever... I gave another dose of Crocin and took him to the doc... he has ear infection which is called Acute Otitis media... we came back home with an prescribe antibiotic and some multivet, ear drops for the pain... after reaching home I checked his temperature again and was stunned when i saw it... 103.8 such a small baby and such high fever... i couldn't react at all... just hugged him tight and cried a little... cursed myself for not leaving the office immediately... blamed myself for thinking that he'll be fine till I reach home...

Its heart breaking to see him suffering like this... its been almost 3 days and the fever still hasnt gone down...till the medicine has effect his fever will come down to about 99-100 and then he'll be jumping all over the house just like him and then fever will start raising again, along with fever will change his behavior... he will slow down, then sit and play, then come to my lap and play with the toy or book and then just lie down in my lap lifeless and that is what I cant bear to see... see him sit like this when usually he doesn't even sit for one minute throughout the day...the heart breaks when u see this... I think these are the times when u understand the most what it feels like having a child... I had read somewhere that "Decision to have a child is accepting that your heart will be walking outside forever".... I think today is when I have understood what that means...

Meanwhile I went to the doc again this evening and he asked to me wait till tomorrow afternoon and see if the fever comes down else a visit to ENT specialist will have to be scheduled....

Carnivorous Ojas

Its always been a task to feed Ojas... mostly he refuses to take food point blank... u try hazaar natakas... 20 toys... dance etc etc... and may be he will take 5 spoons... force feeding doesnt work with him either... he just doesnt open his mouth and even if try and force it into him he spits it out... eating is such a problem... there are days when I just sit and cry because I have lost my patience feeding him and he hasnt eaten anything at all in the whole day... ofcourse there are some days like once in 15 days or so when he eats like a good boy but then one needs to eat everyday right... Mostly he drives me crazy with eating... I have tried everything that I read books and told by his doc but the result is still the same.... anyone who can give me tips on this is welcome...

But thats beside the point, sometime back I had started him on egg yolks and last week I started giving him a little chicken and since then he is abs refusing to take anything else only egg and chicken is what he wants... for the rest of the things he doesnt even take his usual 5 spoons :(

diwali

U know it was my first diwali this time... first time I would see the rangolis... and the diyas... and the crackers... and I had a blast too... and I had a lot of fun... Got so many gifts from mom-dad, massi, nani everyone gave gifts...

On Monday my bua, uncleji and bhaiya didi came and I saw them burning crackers and liked it... I was not at all scared of them as my mom was fearing... I loved the sparkles... the flower pots, the chakris and the roman candles... I would see them... laugh and when they stop cry for more :) the only crackers that irritated me and I got scared of was those long laddis... they kept brusting on and on and on....

Mom and dadi and kala did made rangolis and I wanted to crawl upto them and catch them but no one let me do that... in the evening all of them lighted lovely looking lights also but I was not allowed to touch anything and I got very angry

And I had a lot of fun attending parties that mom-dad went to... I decided that I want to have fun and sleeping is no good... so the first day I slept at 10:30 and the second day I decided I still missed some fun... so I slept only when we all left from the party and that was at about 12 in the night... interesting isnt it and I didnt even had mom dad trying to put me to sleep everyday by 8:30...

U know I wore a lovely b;use color sherwani that nani had sent... mom thought I looked like a prince only...





I had a lot of fun and I am sad that its over and mamma is worried now because i am having some allergy on my face and cough also... I hope I get fine soon else my mumma will be very worried :)

It all aboout 'S'

'S' as in stubborn
'S' as in sleep
'S' as in standing independently
'S' as in smartness
'S' as in Spiderman

So let me explain one by one...

'S' as in standing independently ... he is finally standing independently... not for long yet... for a minute or so and then either sits dham kar ke or just lunges towards the person in front... and he looks so cute doing this... currently there are bets happening in the house on when will he start walking now :)

'S' as in Sleep... Sleep has always been on our enemy u know... There were days before when we didnt sleep at all... and there are days like this nowadays too... he will be rubbing his eyes, yawing, pulling his hair and ears but the minute u take him to the room to put him to sleep and thak he will start screaming on the top of his voice as if we have hit him... and then we have to bring him back to play and he will play with renewed energy as crying gave back all his energy to him and then after some time the yawns etc will start again and then the room and then the cries.. it usually takes abt 3 such cycles for him to go to sleep... quite a task... phew!!!

'S' as in stubborn... I think this is the most difficult... he is becoming so stubborn at this age that sometimes i fear how will I deal with him when he grows up a little... take away from him anything that he wants and see the result... shouts screams what not and that continues till u either give him what he wants or take him out of the house and this guy doesnt even forget man...what he wants he wants when he wants....I really dont know how to deal with this...

'S' as in smartness... here I can proudly say that m y son has outdone all of us at the house :)... we sometimes wonder how do kids have so much brain in such a small head... U do things twice in front of him and he usually picks them up... sometimes we wont even teach him he will just pick it up as we'll be doing it... the other day I was doing that tasty gesture pach pach... and after some I see him repeating it... We had installed gates on our staircase and he has figured out from where to open it and if u are carrying him near the gate this guy will promptly meddle with the bolt and yesterday he managed to open it too... He knows from where the main gate opens... and if u say bye to him he knows that u are going to go out from the main door and phatak se crawls at 100kmph towards it... he knows that if me and hubby have picked up our laptop bags then its time for us to go out and there starts his screams :) someone has to take him out... he has to say bye to us and then he will come back peacefully inside...

Last but not the least 'S' as in Spiderman... he has been named spidey in our house... reason he loves to climb.... anywhere and everywhere... u have read how he loves to climb the stairs and on car... now he has taken the activity further... he can climb on our sofa, the teapoy, our bed and he even tries to climb on the wall and the fridge.... there are times when we catch him mid air because he is trying to place his feet and hands on the flat wall and trying to climb up just like spiderman... crazy little one I have :)

Perfect Timing

Ojas usually sleeps through the night... sleeps at about 9 and gets up at 6 am for milk... has his milk and sleeps again till about 7 or 7:30... sometimes once in a while he gets up at about 2am but then u pick him up and he sleeps again...

Friday being Karwachauth, hubby decided to take me out for a romantic dinner.. we saw the chand did all the rituals... I eat something little... put Ojas to sleep and thought we will get going along with him... but my mil said anyways he sleeps thru.. u leave him and go... made perfect sense right? So off we went leaving sleeping Ojas with dadi and Massi for a nice romantic dinner after the fasting....

But wait Ojas has different plans.... as soon as we sat on the table, the food came... there was a call from home too that he has got up and is crying like crazy... the romantic dinner became just throwing food inside and rushing back home... just to find him sleeping again :( he had just slept when we reached...

perfect timings isnt it ;-)

I can lie down now yippe.... Yes this is about lying down... how much ever funny it may sound but my nonu tonu didnt know how to lie down from sitting till some 3 days back... He could sit from lying down... do ulta pulta... stand up to pulling... go on all fours...crawl... cruise... and even climb things but he didnt know how to lie down from sitting... isnt it funny? he would cry when he gets tried and when we make him lie down he will be happy... everyone who hears that was amused... but finally he got around to do it couple of days back and know that is all he does :) every few minutes of playing he will lie down once... look around.. and then get up and play again....

kids are so funny at times

Eating Out

This weekend was the first time we took Ojas out with us to a restaurant for a dinner... We usually put him to sleep at about 9 pm and then leave the house as my maid used to be there to guard him just incase he gets up... This weekend the maid not being there and we two also being so frustrated because of maid search... we thought what the hell... he will anyways sleep in the car so lets start at the time he sleeps usually and get going... so at around 8:30 we started for dinner to a place which was a good 40 minute drive from our house, as predicted he slept in about 10 mins of the drive but what came next was a surprise... the minute the car stopped he got up and was in such a happy mood... I think he enjoyed the outing more than anyone else... he wanted to just keep climbing up the table... playing and bursting the balloons that the waiters gave him... he had a blast and there was not even a hint of sleep in his eyes... he slept only at 10:45 when we started back.... though it was really tough for us to manage... but he enjoyed :)

Seeing this we got courage and went for a dinner again on Saturday evening he he and this time he crawled all over the restaurant floor and made friends with the waiters... and then to my surprise did something which I have seen happening only once or twice before that too when he was very young... slept himself... ya he just came to me I picked him up and made him sit between myself and hubby and he lied... started eating his teether... singing loori for himself to everyone's delight in the restaurant and slept... cute isnt it?

Day Care Confusions

Ojas' current nanny has suddenly vanished as I posted in my blog... So I am totally in a helpless condition... life has come to a standstill... I am not finding another maid too and then their are issues of Ojas adjusting etc... also at the same time we are wondering whether we should put him in a day care... any inputs on how young was ur child when he started going to a day care? Is it a good idea to send a 10-month old to a day care...

off late it was a joke in our house that he is teething as he seemed to be displaying all the symptoms since past 6 months... but finally he has stopped being a budha baba and got one teeth :)

Godi is for me only

This weekend we went to one of our friend's house who has a 2 month old baby... When Ojas first saw the baby lying down he felt very good even bent down and kissed him twice but then started the drama... my mom picked him up and he screamed, she had to leave him and pick Ojas up... in this process she gave the baby to me and when he realised it he screamed even harder :) and then I had to give the baby back to his father and take Ojas but Ojas was still screaming look at the baby in my friend's godi and then my friend kept him on the bed and here comes the widest grin anyone could see at Ojas's face... We all rolled in laughter :) too much isnt it?

Weekend is fun for me too

Ok some reacp of all the antics and nautanki he did in the weekend... actually there are so many that I dont know where to start and where to end :)

Antic 1:
Ok so here his a snap of his favorite activity these days... he realized that we let him climb stairs when we are around and then would run towards the staircase gate as soon as he sees his dad and then stands up all ready to climb... he did this atleast 20 times on Saturday :)




Antic 2:
These days he is not at all playing with toys... the only two toys he like is are his flower and giraffe... one of which he always keeps along... even crawls with them...







Antic 3:
I have this lovely side table in my hall on which I had kept the phone, some candles and a lovely vase... alas all this was before Ojas started crawling and became mobile... now there is just one empty side table... the candles and the vase have been moved to higher positions and the phone because it needs aceess so very often is now kept on the stairs :) He has been eyeing it for quite sometime now but not able to reach it... Sunday I was just holding he was just sitting with me on the sofa right in front of the stairs and thak he gets up, and starts trying to climb up the sofa... I had never imagined that he will actually be able to do that and within some 2 mins of effort he reached almost the top of the sofa and dragged the phone towards him and came back on the sofa...we all were rolling in laughter :)

Antic 4:
Saturday morning sometime he was crying a lot and we couldnt understand why so my hubby just to calm him down took him to the garden and then made him sit on the car and voila the crying stopped... he laughed and started crawling on the car... and he climbed from the bonet to the top got down on the boot, turned back got up and came back to the boot... see these snaps and tell me an u even imagine this guy was crying like crazy a couple of mins back ..........





Antic 5:
My mom got her head shaved in the weekend from the local balaji temple in Bangalore... We were all actually very apprehensive as to how will he react when he sees mom... he might get scared... but no he was happy and has made nanni's head a tabla for himself...




See now I have forgotten what else did I want to blog... I should have done this on Monday there were atleast 10 things me and hubby discussed worth putting up here and now I can recall only 5, I am so glad I started this blog :) :)
