Showing Off..

Like most kids Aryan loves to be noticed and appreciated when he is doing something new. These recent incidents are part of the same :

These days when my Papa or my mother in law calls and they wish to listen Aryan's voice , Aryan makes sure that he will not talk. Instead , he makes some happy sounds in low tone and rush around the house , and sit on from one toy to another or starts playing with kitchen utensils. But when you, take the phone away to talk , he will start crying. I have been wondering , what is that all about. By observing him closely for sometime , I figuured out that he does /plays the newest thing he has learnt. So he basically shows it off to them ..ON PHONE :-P


Yesterday I went to office , though it was a holiday. So Anupam and Aryan had a blast at home. When I was back, Anupam was telling me about how well Aryan could play with his new blocks and how quickly he was learning. While we were talk , Aryan was busy else where doing something. Soon he came running and started playing with the new blocks and after few seconds he looked at me for appreciation. I clapped and said "Very Good" and you should see the twinkle in his eyes and the sense of achievement :-)

Anupam's conclusion was , you can make this guy do anything with little encouragement. I hope this continues :-)

That's so cute that he's showing off what he's learnt on the phone. That never occurred to me when my two didn't perform on cue.
