Hey dearest ! How are you doing between us? For we are enjoying your company to the fullest. I don’t know if sometimes you would be thinking ‘how weird parents have I got!’ OR ‘how buddhu these guys are!’ hehehe I’m sure there would be so many thoughts doing rounds in your tiny head about so many things around you and ironically right now you aren’t able to express even one of them! So,basically I’m taking full advantage of this stage where in you don’t have your say,literally,and I get to rule you 😉 Like if I want to dress you up in blue I’ll,if I think I should be buying orange stuff for you,I’ll! without any arguments,reasoning or opposition, from you of course 😀 Cause going forward I’m dead sure we are going to reason a lot after so many little things that we are going to do for you…cause you’ve a mind of yours and I can see that!
Slowly yet steadily you’ve started teaching me about yourself. I’m learning about you a lot,by each passing month.
Being Firm: There are,thankfully,few things that you don’t like eg: Apple Juice. And no matter how I’ve tried to give it to you,you’ve rejected it every single time! You are firm,not giving up and don’t seem to budge even a little for whatever reasons.You’ve made it clear to me that you can’t be fooled around by adding some honey or salt to change the taste a bit ,you know what I’m trying to do and you refuse to give up!I get a clue of your strong mindedness!
Being a people’s person:You want to be surrounded by people.You are not one of those who can be happy by just lying down surrounded by toys. You want to be attended,played with,spoken to and be with people! You don’t hesitate for a bit to go to strangers or people whom you’ve just seen once. You smile at them instantly and become friends with. But the flip side is you just can’t be by yourself even for 30 seconds which sometimes makes it difficult for us,you know! I get a clue of your personality!
Being Vocal:Though you can’t speak yet you still want to talk so much. You respond to,every thing that I mutter,with a ‘eh’,’huuu’,’aiiii’ and the likes. Sometimes you’ve been found starting the conversation on your own 🙂 It gives me a clue that you’re taking after me,being talkative 😉
Being Angry:There are times when you are in no mood to get your clothes,diaper changed. You just want to play around and be freed from my clutches at that very moment. But then it’s important for you to wear the diaper and dress up,given the season of cold.But you know how you are and when you don’t want to get dressed OR you don’t want to play with certain toy you get very angry and how do you show it to me? Well,you throw things,whatever is in your reach,far to the corner of the room. Sigh,gives me a clue of your anger and aggressiveness!
Who said babies are so cute and they are so easy to handle? I agree babies are cute but they are not only cute,by the way 🙂 They have other things to their personality too and yes I’m talking about a personality of a 8-monther ! I’m learning several facets of your personality and though sometimes it gets on me…I’m still enjoying the fact how my daughter is growing up! Oh and did I just say growing up? As confused a mother could be,at times I want the time to pause and the other times I want this time to fast forward on it’s own!!! Funny isn’t it?
I’ve come to realize that a daughter is the only female, whom a wife can never be jealous of,when the husband loves her[daughter] much more than her [wife]! In fact,I adore your father when I see him care for you,read you bedtime stories and time and again talk about you when you’re asleep. Now a days when he calls up from work,he first checks for you and I feel so happy about it. There is a great pleasure to know that your father is so much involved and interested in your entire being.You must think ‘why am I making it sound like you’re so lucky to have a father like him,ain’t fathers meant to be like this?’ Well,to this I’ll say just one thing Chirpy that I’ve come across few men who think being father is just lending their sperms and their job is done. Later they believe in being only providers for their children,not a parent!
Any way, so apart from these lessons that I’m learning in your class madam Chirpy, there is so much to life. Suddenly,life has become entirely beautiful and I’m looking forward to so much more that is stored in for me. I’ll always be grateful to you for being my daughter,to the almighty to have given me a chance to become a mother. An experience which is so awesome in itself that it can’t be expressed in words.
