my independent boy drinking from the sipper

ok so this one has a story, long back I bought this from Tambourine from mothercare long back and once he took it to his massi and she sang the song famous dhapli walle dhapli baja baja and he loved it, no whenever he sees his massi he takes this to her and makes her sing the song over and over again... we are all fed up of the song, if massi is not there then mumma has to sing the song but massi sings it the best... so much so that once massi was not there and i was singing as soon as she came he snatched it from me and gave to massi :) and now he has started playing it himself :)
trying to catch the moon

may be massi will get it for me

Yippe we did it

And those of u know me well and read my personal blog know that the biggest thing running in my mind and bothering me was getting Ojas off the bottle... I know its not a very big deal but from the starting I hated the bottle... doesnt do any good but then being a working mom I had no other option... i certainly dont have the patience to feed with katori and spoon I am sure abt that, Ojas had started taking one feed (expressed breast milk) from about 2 months and now he is 15 months so needless to say he was attached to it and I knew I had to work on this slowly patiently

I started when he was 13.5 months old and 1.5 months of hard work has finally payed off... now he is finally drinking his milk three times a day from the sipper... and i am so happy about it :)

Consequently his sleep routine has changed too from sponge bath and bottle milk its now sponge bath, story reading, cuddling with mama-dada, rolling on the bed and finally sleeping... its a long process and he is still long long way off from sleeping on his own but I am bothered about that now, currently I am basking in glory that mumma and Ojas have achieved the target that they set, leaving bottle before we turn 16 :)

Love u baby... u make mumma proud

Very belated 15th

ok so u have a very bad mumma baby, she is late by two weeks for ur 15th month post... its almost like missing the update but this time she swears the fault is not hers... she had the text written so long back and was waiting for the damn usb chord of the camera to upload pics and sadly she hasnt been able to find it yet... so now I go and do the update without pics finally

The past month has good u are becoming more and more independent now... so if there is a mantra for the last month it has to be independence... u want to eat on ur own... drink on ur own so what if u drop half of it and u are even trying to take bath on ur own... u are able to very nicely drink from a sipper now BTW and u drink ur water and juice urself... and u tell us also when u want it ofcourse by sign language as i think u have decided not to speak

coming to speaking... we are still to hear u speaking... u blabber a lot but not really talking yet... it did get me worried initially but then i am fine... take ur own time as i know when u start u wont stop :)

U have become such a mumma's boy, if u see ur mumma around then u dont want anyone else...not even ur dad... though this is secretly giving me pleasure but baby this is not good and sometimes so tough for mumma too...

the train fever that u started last month has totally spread like an epidemic throughout the house... anyone who hears the train now says oh train and goes to the back door to see it... and ya that is even if u are not around :)

Its a delight to see u everyday morning with ur dadi doin pooja... the nastik daddy and the lazy mumma dont do any pooja anyways so u decided that u have to make up for their sins and do jai jai every morning with ur dadi

We started thinking of potty training u last month and I thought the first step is to just let u loose and hence I bought some underwears and my 24*7 diaper ojas started running around in the house without them and peeing all over the house...and each time he did pee i had told my maid to take her to the bathroom and clean him... what I didnt expect is that now he is taking us to the bathroom 30% of the time he wants to pee, the first time he pulled my hand to take me to the loo i thought he wants to play with water and didnt take him and then he did susu... the next time he told me i paid attention and when he did pee i was on seventh heaven he he... agreed he does it only 30% of the time and agreed sometimes after taking him there he doesnt do and does just when we step out but atleast he is telling me...

but my dear ojas u absolutely refuse to sit on ut potty seat... so i think for me it'll be toilet training for u first and potty training later...

One very good thing u have learned is to keep things back at their places and u have learned it way to much and there are times when u are seeing keeping mom's clips and bag, dad's phone and all the other things at their places too and ur toys have to be have to be in their place... i hope this continues...

love u baby... u are growing u way too fast ( i think this is how I end all my monthly updates)

And people guess what is oju's lullaby these days... I bet u cant... its none other than Genda phool... glad that he has a good taste in music :)

Holi Hai

Though I wanted to do but due to some reasons we didnt really celebrate holi this year the way we usually do...

But there are a bunch of nice people in the colony who make it point to carry the holi tradition and go from house to house to put gulal and exchange sweets... so yesterday Ojas saw them from the window and became super excited... i was initially thinking he might get scared but my dare devil again proved me wrong... he no scared of nothing :)

with them he just allowed them to put colors on him and kept observing them... and we came back inside he took the color from my hand and put in on my face just as everyone outside was doing... I couldnt stop myself from crying buckets full... i assure u we could have played holi in the amount of tears that came out ;-)

leave u with some pics

PS: excuse if they are shaky most are clicked by my maid (her first time) by my phone camera





and he really loved the colored water when i took him to take bath

Chandamama Door Ke

I was so reminded of this rhyme today when my little one wanted to catch the moon... Oflate he has started to fall in love with the moon...

Some 10 days back his daadi took him out in the evening to show him moon and since then he wants to see it everyday and one day in between on a no moon night he was really sad and frustrated that he cant see it... he was searching all over the sky and done doing his waving action to represent its not there and do huhn huhn... He refused to come back inside and it was only after 10mins that he was convinced that its really not there and came back in...

And tonight he wanted to catch the moon... poor fellow was trying hard very hard to stretch himself to reach the moon...

my son wants to now reach the moon....
