Aditi at Eight


Just eight months ago I held you and wondered how can someone not fall in love?( Babies- such a wonderfu start to people!!)

You are a doll (largely) and a demon (rarely) and a lamb ( separation anxiety is setting in).

You had a quiet way of getting attention and now it is turning louder

You crawl about 4 steps at one go, much to all our delight. You do a Salman Khan kind of push up that thrills Anushka. You sit for a while and then tumble. You stand straight and stiff when held.

You seem to be teething but then again we may be wrong about that

You are completely fascinated by hair- you pull your own too with much gusto.

You enjoy the swing, be it to "push" your sis higher or to sit on her lap and swing along You are excited by bubbles and people sneezing! You enjoy playing ball too.

You try new things to eat and also are adventurous when it comes to meeting people

However you are a carry -me- not, like most kids your age ...We have a baby sitter ( your first) on trial since yesterday and you protested loud and clear. My heart broke but I had to prove to myself that I can truly work from home which meant I did not come to your rescue all the time. While you may not remember this by the time you read about yourself later, I would like you to know that I had to do it.

Love you dear Adithu!! ( as we have begun addressing you)

I was quite impressed by the way she was so comfortable with so many of us strangers in your house that day. She even went to sleep with the grannies while we were making so much noise. She is a doll indeed!
