So you turned six months old last week and Amma has started office. You dont seem to be much bothered about it as long as you get your food.
We did a small anna prash ceremony for you last Monday and you were licking everything joyfully. Your Appa insisted that you be first fed by your Akka since she was the one who really really wanted you :) He again broke tradition and asked me to feed you next, and then he fed you along with both your grandmas :)
I guess the ceremony was pretty symbolic because you are back to eating your wheat porridge hehehe!
I dont know whether its good or bad but that is it :)
Yesterday we had gone to a function and I was pretty much ok leaving you on the floor and letting another aunty give you milk and rotis. You didnt seem much bothered either!
Guess thats what they mean by experience :)
I keep reminding myself that each child is different and you and Akka will be too. But guess you are following your akka’s footsteps till now. Crying after every meal that the meal got over no matter how much the quantity hehe! Refusing to crawl too much as it takes up too much energy and proving that my laziness genes are dominant in you just like in Akka’s. And giving me trouble while trying to sleep. Of course your Baroda Thatha blames it squarely on me saying you have travelled too much during both your pregnancies till the last minute, what were you expecting?
Its been a good six months and I must admit I dont feel that time flew. Having a child is no joke and whoever tells you that kids just grow up and you wont realise obviously didnt have you and Akka as kids. Its be a tough six months for me with joys and frustrations alike. But the joys definitely overweigh the fustrations :)
You are trying to sit up and enjoy pulling everyone’s hair. Akka and I are your favorite targets :) Your best smiles are still reserved for Akka and Appa, and surprisingly it doesnt bother me too much ;)
A calender is your favorite thing and you love anything with numbers on it. Makes me think you are going to be a Maths Professor ;)
Love you and Akka both
