How did that happen!

DSCN6537 You are half an year old today. How did that happen!!

You are grabbing the DVD remote as I type this post. the DVD remote is slippery to you and has moved a bit forward. lying on your momma’s hand you are all set to get it. that book distracted you. you want to shred it into pieces before you move on to your next target. momma is happily typing with one hand. one page of the book has come out and you are happily chewing… oops, it has fallen off the table. so, you are on to get another page, alas, the whole book has fallen off now. hey, that remote too.


You tried your best to grab that laptop, but as your mom is as multitasking woman as you are, she manages to keep you off her laptop with one hand and typing using the other. But you are fast like your mom that you have moved  to that hole like space between the coffee table and the sofa where you just have spotted the book. nope mom lifted you. okay, you have got mom’s hands now that you can chew too, don’t you?

You are growing up normally like any other six month old. Your dad is unhappy that your height falls on the 75th centile graph. He sure is a proud dad who can get disappointed that there can be babies taller than you.. 🙂


Your mom is no any special mom but a regular mom. She still hasn’t come to terms with the term amma. Probably she will when you start calling her so. She had planned some special nice photo shoots but ended up taking some regular pictures. she is very proud of you when you don’t let her use her laptop. your hands are all over the laptop as I type this. you are lying cosily on her on hand, while she types and keeps your legs and hands away from this post using the other hand. you are exploring everything that your hands and legs can reach.

I have to post this. I know it is not complete. I know it is nowhere near what I had planned for today. but I am enjoying completely every moment with you. that is all it matters. One of your mom’s theories about her being a perfectionist is, “perfection is a relative term. if the situation demands this has to be finished NOW, then finishing NOW is the perfection rather than perfecting it” 😉  I hope it make sense. 🙂

Avni is six months old or 26 weeks old today
