And Jill came tumbling after...

Do you remember the rhyme Jack and Jill? Isn't it one of the first rhymes we have all learned as kids?

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.

When Anand isn't working night-shifts, we try and sing a few rhymes for our baby. Well, we have just started doing it together. Anand's favorite rhyme is Jack and Jill and every rhyme he sings HAS to end with, "And Jill came tumbling after". Even twinkle twinkle little star has to end with, "And Jill came tumbling after". Its so funny that we both end up laughing when we are singing the last line :)

The other day he was telling Kutty baby a tamil story about a kaka (crow), vadai (spicy doughnut made with lentils) and  kullanari. Even that ended with, "And Jill came tumbling after". LOL

In the beginning our Kutty was recognizing only my voice. Now she also recognizes her Dad's voice when he asks her to kick me from inside :) Sometime she even complies.

Just this morning Anand was worried that she is in birthing position, which means she is upside down. He is saying, "my poor baby is upside down, i hope she is comfortable"; if given a choice he would sure want me to sit/lie down upside down so that baby is not upside down :) 

We both cant wait to meet her; she is so loved by her dad that I hardly doubt that she already has him wrapped around her tiny little fingers even before she is born.
