Hey guys I’ve started walking. And believe me it feels just great. Mama is soooo proud of me. I could have done it much earlier but I’d just been putting it off for a long time. Frankly I wasn’t in any hurry but you know how peer pressure gets to you! And N is always in such a hurry that it makes things a tad tough for an easygoing guy like me. Anyway I thought I’d end the wait for mama and she really was thrilled. She ran to get the camera and now I’m sure she’ll show it around to anyone she can lay her hands on… you know how mothers are… quite embarrassing, really!
This last Saturday (21 June, 2007) was nothing if not eventful. Here are some of the other firsts we achieved that day…
N gave her very first flying kiss. Mama and Sophia got all excited and begged her to do it again but you know pricey she can be… she just refused.
She learnt to say ‘Bua’ too, which made Suman bua very happy. (Of course mama called her up immediately).
Oh and you must listen to this - N found the bottle of Hing from the spice cabinet. Like she said earlier, mama isn’t able to keep pace with us at all. She never realizes that we’re growing smarter by the day. So she, unsuspectingly, let her take it thinking we’ll never be able to open it. But ha ha… that’s just what we did. It felt like playing in the sand pit. I tried to eat some of it but it was yucky. Unfortunately for us the wretched thing reeks like crazy and mama was soon on our trail. We were both hauled off to the bathroom because we had hing all over us and papa got a sound scolding for not keeping an eye on us.
I also had a big fall from the swing. Sophia didi was pushing the swing and she let go for just a moment. Now how was I supposed to know that? Down I went, plonk! But there’s sand all around the swings so there was no damage and mama rushed in and picked me up sooo fast that I didn’t even need to cry. Anyway I’m a big boy now.
