Aadya chooses to do everything today!!

Aadya chooses to do everything today!!
She figured out that she can climb on amma to reach her destination aka the a/c remote on the sofa!
Till now she has been standing up holding the sofa and clutching anything we forget to keep on the edge!

But today … amma is sitting by the sofa and she decides to climb on amma and push herself further up to reach her so very forbidden items!!

πŸ™‚ no wonder they say babies learn the most in their first year than what humans can in their entire lifetime
No wonder!
And then the next excitement or say elatement
Aadya chooses to follow amma to the kitchen … all the way!!

Till date she always had hindrances … Β  Disturbances u see!! πŸ˜‰
Tata’s “Mama’s souvenir” pooja room …
Oh my !! πŸ˜‰
But today she crossed all those and came to the kitchen for Amma

But once she reached there, seeing amma busy…

She got herself busy picking up all the tiny particles left by amma!!!!!
Oh !!

I loved it today! I have been waiting for the long crawl marathon ever since she rolled over πŸ˜€

As a kid, I used to love my brother crawling all over the house! And ever since I have been waiting for more crawling πŸ™‚

The topping today is tata and ammamma are back in town for Aadya! She squeals in delight as she sees tata and cuddles in comfort in ammamma’s hands πŸ™‚
Guess she was motivated as they are back home with her!



Just as my daughter started rolling about all over the bed, I was moving at jet speed when she is about to topple over the bed and she seems to find pleasure in peeping down the edge of the cot πŸ™‚

I was yelling TO her “Aadya why dont you roll how I want you to and do the obvious and just be obvious and go in one flow” (I know I most of the times feel my 6 month old daughter is actually pretending her age and she is just 6 years younger to me ;). I seriously cant help it )

And then I was wondering out loud would I be loving her with the same if not her randomness and her complete dependence on me to look out for her.

Also isn’t the randomness that helps her discover and learn the most about herself and her surroundings πŸ™‚

As this dawns upon me, both of us continue the game yet again, she drifting away and i make a dash for her ……… more enthusiastically πŸ˜‰


The most forgiving person in my life

I have met the most forgiving person in my life – my daughter Aadya!

She doesn’t blame me for things I do or things I din’t do…

She sees me with a fresh +ve perspective every minute.
She smiles at me if I attend her even if she is unhappy the previous min!

Ah ! How I wish every one I meet and me myself too have the same perspective as my daughter!

Oh ! What a wonderful place this world would be!
