Oh where oh where the little socks have gone??

Oh where oh where can they be??? I swear the socks come in pairs and within 4 weeks one of the socks magically disappears at my home and I am left with the other pair.

$100 for anyone who can suggest what to do with one sock! Lol

Twinkle twinkle...

As I have mentioned before, Megha loves the rhyme Twinkle Twinkle. It was no surprise to me when she picked up ALL the last words of the rhyme!! I am not kidding! at 22 months, she can actually remember and say every last word of this rhyme's sentence!! But of course I would have sung this song at least 20,000 times to her, even when she was inutiro :)

Bold part is what she says when I stop there mid-sentence:

     Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
     How I wonder what you are.
     Up above the world so high,
     Like a diamond in the sky.

     When the blazing sun is gone,
     When he nothing shines upon,
     Then you show your little light,
     Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

     Then the traveller in the dark,
     Thanks you for your tiny spark,
     He could not see which way to go,
     If you did not twinkle so.

     In the dark blue sky you keep,
     And often through my curtains peep,
     For you never shut your eye,
     'Till the sun is in the sky.

     As your bright and tiny spark,
     Lights the traveller in the dark.
     Though I know not what you are,
     Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

First Sentence!

A big milestone for all of us as this is megha's one of the biggest milestones!
On Sept19, 2013, Megha said her very first sentence, "Hi Oso" referring to her favorite cartoon charecter!
So proud of you baby! Just wanted to log the date :)

Here is Oso :)

First few sentences

Megha is totally surprising us these days with her new words. All that worry about starting to talk late was for nothing I guess!

Over the weekend of 28th Sept, I took Megha out to the park. There I was a baby and said, "Hi Baby"..and immediately Megha said "Hi Baby"! thats her very second sentence! I was sooo happy to hear it!
First was "Hi OSO".

These days she says "hi-yaya", her way of saying Hi. This evening she saw Anand and said "Hi Oso"

She also says hi bus, bye bus :)
5th Oct, we were at the doctors clinic getting our shots and she was playing with my handbag and saw a pen. She immediately said "pen" surprising us both. The same evening we were watching the dvd of Baby Einstein and said "snow" when she saw the snow falling on TV :)

Below pictures are taken late last week at the daycare. Oh how she loves playing outside! Pictures were taken by her daycare provider; very nice of her :) Megha was "helping" her clean/rake the Fall leaves :)

Have I ever mentioned before that Megha is a little texture sensitive when in comes to breakfast and having fruit? Just recently I started on giving the omelet pieces without mashing it (like scrambled). Last weekend, 28th September, megha actually ate 3/4 of our dosa! No mashing, no nothing! I gave her small pieces of dosa lightly dipped in coconut chutney and she ate it!! Yippie!

It probably might not be a big deal for many moms but for me, this being her very first attempt with out mashing, is a super big deal :)

Oh NO!

"Momma!! Do I really have to eat everyday? For the rest of my life?!"

So says the expression isnt it? lol
I was going through the old pictures and just HAD to paste this here:) This was taken when I had started introducing solids between 6-7 months.

and that's the way we eat :)

Its already been 21 months since Megha was born? Really? Where has all the time gone? On one hand I want to have an 8 hour sleep (even when Anand is not home) and I really want her to cross the stage where I have to constantly keep an eye on her....and on the other hand, I want to freeze this time, want to savor the memories and want Megha not to grow up too fast.

I am torn between teaching her how to eat independently and on other hand I dont want to lose the bonding we share when I feed her. I wonder if every parent faces this dilemma or is it just me?

Here is Megha attempting to eat on her own over the weekend :)
Normally she doesnt like to spill food on her table and really tries hard not to spill. But on the days she is too involved in watching Special Agent Oso (her favorite cartoon), this is what she looks like when she eats :)
both hands in :)
