Traditional Expression of Love

Aryan has always had different and innovative ways for expressing love. Read that all here and here and here and here.

But these days he is moving towards the traditional ways. Whenever he is happy with papa or mumma , he showers him or her with loads of kisses , on both the cheeks. But there are times when he feels thats not enough and what does he do then ? He holds papa or Mumma's face with both hands and give a kiss on lips :-O

And yes , just to clarify , Aryan is not fond of watching TV and his papa or mummy are not the teachers of this new lesson ;-)

A Three Day Birthday!

Birthdays are always special and his was special too , in its own little ways,

My parents came on 18th for his birthday , a kick start to birthday !! He was thrilled to see them. And the gifts they got for him. So here is how was his 3 day birthday!

He went with his papa and Nanu to get his bicycle assembled and and was happy to get his first vehicle on 19th , birthday gift 2 days in advance :D

After he came back I asked him to say thank you to Nanu and give him a kiss. He obeyed shyly. He said "Than Kuu" to nanu without looking at him from my lap , his first thank you to anyone ever and then he went running to give a kiss to nanu , his first kiss to nanu.

Plus there was a folding chair , that folds like an umbrella and Aryan enjoyed immitating Papa and Nanu :)

On sunday , we started off for a lunch to the place he enjoyed when we went there for the first time. He enjoyed this time as well and sat beside the pool. He actually wanted to jump in the pool , had I not been there. I did not let him due to recent cold and cough.

On the way back we went to Spar for our weekly grocery shopping and he kept on checking for his nanu nani and made sure that they don't go in different direction and sit in the car as we move.

In the evening , he took the nap he missed and then played and played and played. He also explored his new books sent to him as gift from Mamu.

While he played , I spread out a kiddy bedsheet on our bed (he sleeps with us) with Pooh bear and friends. So when he came to bedroom (at 11.30 after lot of pushing from us) he was thrilled to see the bedsheet. So while we were in bed he tried to push me to the edge , saying "Hato", to be able to see all the cartoons.

He did not sleep till 12 and played between both of us. So at 12 both of sang Happy Birthday to him and he was excited and happy and I could see an overwhemling expression in his eyes , which made my day ! Soon after receiving wishes , he started snoring and so did we.

Morning I got up usual and filled loads of balloons and pasted a birthday banner and few cartoon stickers. As soon as he woke up he was happy to see all that was around. Forgot about his morning milk for 30 minutes. He was told that it was his happy birthday today (he was being told from last few days) and he said , "Happy ady" , yeah something like that:)

All the family called up to wish him and who would not enjoy that attention. He was hugged and kissed every 5 minutes and he had a blast.

He was dressed up in a kurta pajama around 12 ish and and we went to his day care for cake cutting (Yeah we decided for afternoon , because all the kids of his age group are there and are active at that time , plus I have evening calls at office and cannot miss them). He thought we went to leave him , though I had told him that he will be back with us. Plus it was almost his nap time and so he wanted to sleep , attributed to late sleeping the previous day. So he did get a little cranky to see the day care. But the cake cutting went well. Kids were excited to see cake and whistles and masks and return gifts. All of them enjoyed and sang Happy Birthday and wished Aryan. Aryan enjoyed the attention and waved them bye in the end with flying kisses. He was too happy on way back home , attributed to all the attention and the fact that he will be going HOME with NANU NANI :)

I made him sleep as soon as we reached home and then Anupam I pushed off to our offices for the second half of the day. Night , we spent time chit chatting and playing with Aryan and having some good food.

So that was it ..the much awaited Birthday of my little prince !

Happy Birthday Son!

On your second Birthday , I have no words to express my feelings , and so this is my attempt in paint , to tell you what I would like to say :

Happy Birthday!!

With Love , your papa and Mumma

The Indian music industry has found a new talented singer and composer. His first song has won the heart of Papa dear , Taiji dear and Mommy dear. He sung the song on phone for taiji and ever since then , you can find papa humming the song all the time.

The song goes like this , "Jaba Jaba Jabaaaa, Jaba Jaba Jabaaaa".

Papa's Boy

His papa is his role model in everything. Whatever papa does is the best. Whatever papa use is the best. And he takes good care of papa's belongings as well.

He runs to get his papa's shoes every day. And he understands and get another pair when papa says , "Nahi Beta , not this , other one." He stands at the door with a towel for the papa. He runs to get papa's specs as soon as papa comes out of bathroom.

Day before yesterday, we went out a nearby restaurant for evening snacks. It was one of those self service kinds. So while his papa went to fetch the food , I saw that Aryan is looking at someone. I tried to call him , but he gave no response.He was standing close to another table and staring 2 people , who were having coffee. On giving a closer look , I saw that a pair of glasses were kept on the table. I got worried of him going and picking it. Thats when he turned to me , pointing at the glasses and said , "Papa" in a very helpless tone. I explained that papa has his glasses and thats Uncles.

He immitates Anupam in his habits as well. He makes noise like his papa , while brushing. He roam around in balcony with mobile phone on his years and talk in gibberish with someone. This includes , "Hello" ,"hahahaah" and "Bye" as well.
He likes using papa's pillow and he slowly slip from his pillow to his papa's until papa decide to swap the pillows and give him what he wants.

Whatever papa does is right and so when papa covers himself with a quilt he demands mumma to do so as well. But here he refuses to immitate papa himself.

So I am seeing a papa's boy in making :-)

The Way He Expresses Himself

These days, Aryan does certain things which make us flow in the oceans of positive and negative emotions all at the same time and some times we do not know how to react. Trying to list a few of them :

Anupam and I have been taking turns for having dinner. Anupam used to have his dinner while I fed Aryan and then I used to have dinner after they are done.

But from past few days , Aryan wants to eat with papa. And so he bangs on to papa's plate as soon as papa sits with the plate. Anupam happily tries to feed him. But No. Aryan wants to change places. He wants to feed papa and to himself. Though it is a lovely scene , he messes up the food, Anupam and himself.And leaves his papa irritated.

Don't you think I am spared. The story repeats when I sit to eat. I really love the way he feeds me lovingly and the way he makes a "Yummy , isn't it" face as the spoon goes in my mouth ,exactly the way I do when I feed him. Yeah but then after the process is done I need to clean up all the mess.

Some times while I play with him he feels an overflow of emotions. He expresses himself by showering with kisses.At times, he holds my face in his hands and look at me with loads of love. While at times , he doesnot know what to do. And so he hits me , scratches me , bite me and pull my hair. I really don't know how to control him at that time.And he leaves me irritated as well.

Mornings when I go for a bath, after Aryan and Anupam are already ready, he cries like hell. Sometimes Anupam is able to distract him but at times , he cries like I have gone forever. One way I feel how much he wants me , at the same time I feel like , can I not even bath at peace.

These days during sleep , he loves to cling to his papa.With papa not being habitual of Aryan disturbing him during sleep, he gets irritated.
