January: Megha was all but one year (well, 2 weeks older) when we entered 2013. She had just celebrated her first birthday and I was marveling how much she had grown. That also meant that my one year maternity leave came to an end and I had to return to work from Jan 02, 2013.
The hardest part was leaving her at the daycare. Oh, how she cried for the first 7 working days! Big fat tears would roll down her cheeks and I was feeling so sad all the time when I was at work. But in 7 working days she decided that she had enough and stopped crying after that! What a relief to see her happy again!
Picture in Jan:
Since she was getting more teeth, she also started brushing her teeth! below is a picture taken at daycare...she has a small paper in her mouth...which she was made to spit, much to her dismay.
July: middle of summer and it was getting really warm. We enrolled Megha in swimming lessons and she absolutely loves to play in the pool! At daycare too almost everyday they get into the pool. She had her very first taste of cheese omelet and she seems to like it. She also completes the rhymes (last words) when I sing a rhyme.
August: we celebrated Anands birthday and Janmashtami in Aug. She also started calling me Momma for the very first time! She can say many more words than what she was saying in July.
Unfortunate incident: Megha slipped on a girls foot and fell. Her forehead split a little a lot of blood came about. This was her very first big boo boo (and last for now and hope it holds good for future too).
We also went to Cancun, Mexico in mid October.
November: Megha started speaking a lot. She talks so much gibberish but if you listen carefully, you will know what she is saying. We had a fantastic Diwali and Megha really was looking pretty in her pattu pavadi.
Happy New Year darling!
