One little finger

One little finger is my new favorite rhyme. I love the kid who stars in the rhyme and imitate him. Singing this to me brings in so many giggles and squeals of laughter and you will love it. Want to try this for your kids? Here is the video.

Busy Basket

I am so active that you got to look at me to believe. I am very agile, mobile and explorative. I don’t leave any nook and corner of the house and finally come to mom for a refill of toys. So once I finish playing with all my toys, I feel bored. To keep me from getting bored, mom designs a busy basket every day for me. The busy basket has many surprises in store. Each of these is carefully crafted by mom and is a mixture of things for me to hold, touch, smell, taste and explore. Sometimes the basket has all vegetables, toys and combinations, sometimes it is the turn of colorful papers, bits, clothes and toys. 

With the busy basket, mom can monitor and see hat I am doing and how I am I responding to several colors, shapes and sizes and help me explore, learn and see for myself. I love the busy basket idea and look forward to it everyday. Mom shared the idea on a social networking forum and she got amazing response from kids there too. Why don’t you try for your toddlers the same?

Did I tell you my mumma is so creative and all that came from me when I was in her tummy 😀

What am I up to?

April was mom and dad’s anniversary month and we were all going out big time. I always had thought they were more at home as I was small and might stay so for another year. This month, we were zipping all around the city, going back to mom’s favorite places, eateries and shopping. I like a good girl am observing everything and noting down what to buy and where.

I also did my first shopping for a shampoo that is as big as me 🙂 Dad and mom don’t specially prefer Pantene but because it is the first product I picked up off the shelf completely, dad got it and my-o-my how big that is! We are going to smell like Pantene for quite sometime 🙂 What have you been up to lately? 

My time with the Lord

A page from mamma’s diary

Wee hours of the night. 
Dim light. 
All set to sleep. 
No words, no signs and no lullabies.
Just Silence.
Enjoying her me-time cuddling mom.

Why should she giggle and laugh out loud all of a sudden?
Look at me, give that heartful and the cutest laugh again?
Turnaround, come back and hug me while still laughing?
Oh! yes, she was laughing not smiling.

I might laugh if some joke peeps in my mind.
But what can an year old think and laugh at?

My mind hasn’t stopped thinking about what happened last night.
Was she playing with Angels? Was she sharing a joke with God?

Still puzzled, all I can say is GOD! YOU ARE AMAZING.

A – B – C – D – E – F – G…

A – B – C – D – E – F – G
H – I – J – K – L – M – N – O – P
Q – R – S – T – U – V,
W – X – Y and Z
Now I know my A – B – C’s
Next time won’t you sing with me?

Mom sings it while I touch, point out the letters, clap and smile.

This alphabet poster is my favorite for last seven months.
I was / am never forced  to learn these. Mom and Dad say my learning should be full of fun and play but not of force.

This was kept along with another colorful chart for my visual stimulation. I fell in love with this chart from day  I saw it more than the colorful one which is good too. ‘V‘ is a special letter as my dad’s name starts with it 🙂 .

Growing up – healthy options

Growing up is tough. Trust me!

First of all we have to learn a lot of things. We are almost a clean slate when we come, don’t we? Now there are too many things happening all around and we have to just jump in and learn a lot in a short while before we can run this race and be a part of this amazing world. When you sit back and look at it, it is like boarding a running train. That too a super fast train and all you get is just a short while to look at it. God this is a tough job.

Okay while we are learning and training ourselves to take on this world, we are bothered by diseases and germs and what not. Now I am in good hands as mom and dad believe in alternative medicine and also that I should earn immunity(not the one like a pin on masterchef) but real immunity to strengthen myself and be ready to kick all diseases on my own with very little medication. I am not forced to take any medicines except for few drops of colpol and colic that too when I was too sick and weak when I was a little kid. Yep! I am all grown up now and am all of nine months 🙂 No I am sorry, you will have to wait for my recent pics for a little more longer.

I am also a member of this wonderful community in India called the Indiblogger where we have a special posting for Dabur Chyawanprakash. Dabur is one of the few brands that are consistent;ly used in our home: Dabur laltail and dabur dantmanjan are almost used dialy 🙂 Coming back to this topic… Considered safe for consumption from over three years of age, this semi-solid health tonic promises three times more immunity and fights weakness, cough, cold and disease causing germs by building up your immunity. Now you know that I can’t read all the information on their website. So I tried to summarize all the important points here:

  1. Dabur is the first branded Chyawanprash in the country
  2. It is the highest selling Chyawanprash with more than 60% market share
  3. It is scientifically proven to provide 3 times more immunity that helps fight virus, flu and infections
  4. Dabur Chyawanprash has been consistently voted as the power brand of the country and is a trusted remedy for cough and cold for a majority of Indian household.
  5. It has been endorsed by celebrities like Sreeram lagoo, Amitabh Bachchan, Vivek oberoi, Virender Sehwag and now MS Dhoni
  6. Has a sugar free variant for calorie conscious people
  7. It is also available in 2 new exciting flavours Orange and Mango
  8. It contains natural Ayurvedic ingredients, which are being consumed safely for ages.
Why don’t you read more about the product here: http://www.daburchyawanprash.com and decide about the product?
I have a question for you at this point. Do you trust alternative medicine and believe in building up your immunity or would you rather fight the disease once it hits you? I think you should build your immunity so as to avoid falling sick. What do you say?

Ouch! I am hurt…

For the first time ever this evening at around 4:30 I fell down and hit the back of my head on floor.


I was siting and playing with some stacks and wanted to lean on pillows my mom usually keep. They weren’t there and I hit my head badly. Mom and Dad were shocked and their hearts skipped a beat. Mom came running from kitchen and dad immediately held me in his arms.  I cried for few seconds but cheered up when mom sang itsy bitsy spider. Dad took me out for a walk to make me feel relaxed. I love them so much.  

Please tell them that it’s quite normal to fall while learning to crawl and walk. Parenting is a tough job I guess. Tell me about the first time you fell.

Experimenting with spices

Do you give spices to your kids? Dad does! Now that is a secret(we have to keep from mom).

I loved the hot and clear chicken soup which I tried when I was four months! I am super happy with fish, chicken, mutton , spicy vegetables fries and curries. Of course they are toned down for me but I love nibbling small bits before searching for water.

I am brave(dad say’s so) and I don’t cry at all and make a fuss when I taste something different. I love experimenting with spices. I am yet to grow up and have the McSpicy and other snacks at MCD or KFC but till then I will try and taste what Dad gives me when mom isn’t watching.

I guess I will be easy to cook for 🙂
