The Parenting Stories are my experiences ..Β  myΒ  journey, my excitement with my two darling daughters ..

Nannaa jagratha

This was a couple of months back ..

my dd just crossed 1 .. [Her convo is completely telugu πŸ™‚Β ]

She was watching her dad watering the plants ..

I was calling out to him .. he couldn’t hear ..
She saw me .. screaming for help ..

suddenly she shouted “NANNA(dad) …” looked at me and said “Jaartha(CAREFUL)” shaking her index finger at him ..

I deciphered .. (Dad u are not answering mom .. careful πŸ˜‰Β )

She understands me soooo wel! πŸ˜‰



Safekeeping .. by Sree Aadya

Aadya has started to Swach HOME πŸ™‚

She is settling things, safekeeping stuff … resettling πŸ™‚

And so I guess the real job has started for us πŸ™‚ She just put away the car keys VERY SAFELY and the whole house has to search for it … πŸ™‚

The real TREASURE HUNT has begun ..

Well welcome toddler days .. and .. this .. is just the beginning πŸ™‚



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!


Aadya response to the phone call “Ammaa” … “Babble” .. “Babble”

I call dad for something and dad switches on the speaker ..

Aadya recognizes my voice and feels she has to answer me …

“Ammmaa …. “and she voices out a lot ..

And this repeats for the second timeΒ that day.

In the evening, when I was compelled to go out, I found myself dialing dadΒ for Aadya this time .. only with Satish joining me.

She joins in the conversation yet again, but checking our bedroom when she hears my husbands voice.

Hes on cloud 9 along with me. (I am since the first call in the morning)

Ah … The bliss of recognition ..

We don’t really want anything else at the moment.

The icing on the top is as I tell my dad “DAD!! I so love her voice even better on the phone. Its so clear and ………. ADORABLE!!!”
