This Friday August 12th 2011 you will complete 21 months and I feel the need to let you know all that you have been doing till now.
In the morning as soon as we get you ready and put your shoes on, you cant wait to get out of the house and will go around the house telling 'key','key', which is an indication that we should take the car-key and take you to day-care. Though you still cry at drop-off, it is much better now that you have adjusted there and can even call your teacher by her name 'Jenny'
You have suddenly entered the 'No' phase. For the past 2 days you have been telling 'No' for everything we ask you to do, driving us nuts at times and giving us lots of chuckes in the process. Infact yesterday night you were shouting 'No' even in your dreams. This led me to think of how many times we stop you from doing things by telling 'No'. No Ritvik, dont spill the milk. No Ritvik, dont climb on the stool. Well you are giving us a taste of our own medecine and so we decided to omit the work 'No' from our vocabulary to teach you to say 'Yes'
We love the way you dance whenever music is played. Infact at a gathering bny the apartment friends were amazed to see you dance as soon as the music started. You rock baby!
You can speak single words very well but have not yet started speaking sentences, Well for some words you would just tell the endings and for some wors you have your own vocab like 'Bawa' for duck, 'Ina' for water, 'Pi' for Topi(hat) and so on.
You don't go very easily to strangers and still need Amma & Appa to be near you while you play but you are generous in sharing your toys.You eat & sleep well but sometimes if you are hungry (especially in the early mornings), you get all cranky and then start screaming. At times like these I fell like throwing you out of the window, when I tell you this later(when you are in a good mood), you smile which melts my whole heart.
You are so generous with your kisses and you shower me with them on my fore-head, eyes,nose,2 cheeks and chin.
Luv you my baby boy
