1 and a half baby!

Mom was writing posts, then she made the excuse of tweets, then vanished :-p. I guessed its time for Snugster, the super baby :-D. Did you miss me? I guess not :(. Whether you miss me or not, I have to come and tell you what I've been upto every now and then. See, I'm such a good baby ;-).

I'm 1.5 years old today! Mom is still wondering where all the time went. And dad wishes he can understand half the things I keep babbling about (but he has conversations with me as if he does :-p). He doesn't know that we babies have our own code language :-D. He keeps trying to decode it, but hey I am not helping :-D. Okay okay, I know you are here for my updates, so lets start off..

I love being in the kitchen, I love banging bowls and spoons and all that jazz :-D.

I can open jars and bottles now, so whenever I see an opportunity, like a full water bottle within my reach, I open it and pour the water out :-D. Whats worse (according to mom, not according to me :-D), was that for 4 days, almost continuously, I took the salt shaker on the dining table and threw the salt all over the kitchen floor. Sadly, I have to report that I have been banned from the kitchen these days. Even when I'm allowed in there, I feel their hawk eyes on me all the time. Sigh!

I climb anything and everything these days. I not only climb the sofa, I try and climb the top portion of the sofa..

Mom keeps thanking God, that the house is carpeted everywhere. But she forgets about the kitchen where I try and climb the dining chairs ;-) :-D. BTW I have 16-teeth now!

I don't really trouble mom when it comes to food (now that gives me ideas, hehehehe). But I have some personal favourites. I love eating fruits and curd. Lovvvve Curd :). So much that mom puts some in a bowl and gives me a spoon to eat it now and then.

Well, its another story altogether that I hardly eat 1 or 2 spoons, rest is either on me or around me ;-).

Mom told you about my love of cats, but I love anything with 4 legs. We had been to the zoo sometime back, and I loved the petting zoo. I squeezed everything and anything in sight..

The warden was warning us not to touch the goats' tails and horns, but hey, I don't know English :-p. I didn't want to leave the place, they carried me while I was making loud and clear protests :-p.

Mom allows me to play in the backyard these days and I have discovered another love - my love of destroying grass life :-D.

I tear the grass, watch birds and planes for hours :).

For months now, I have been trying to open doors (mom has been feverishly thanking God each day that I can't). I have been frustrated about the whole thing, but have never given up.

All my efforts have been rewarded now. I can open doors for about a week now. No one, I repeat, no one can escape me now! Hehehehehe >:-)).

Mom told you about me speaking a lot of things, I say lots more now - Amma, Naana, Ammamma, Ajja, Thaatha, Mama, Aththa, Baabu, Paapu, Hai, Bye, Okay, Hala (Hello), Aithu, Pake (Park), Bala, Banana, Appal (Apple), Ubbala (Umbrella), Bucke (bucket), Dhudhu (for milk) and Abbu (for wound). Hey, I have to make them understand na, they are not brilliant enough to understand my language :-p. Other than these, whenever mom and dad ask me a few questions, I try to answer -

Q: "Sayankala ellige hogona?" (Where shall we go in the evening?)
A: "Pake" :-D.
Q: "Naana elli hogiddare?" (Where has dad gone?)
A: "Aatha" (for office)
Q: "Naana office ge hege hodru?" (How did he go to office?)
A: "Drrr" (for car)
Q: "Dhudhu kudiyona ok na?" (We'll drink milk ok?)
A: "Okay"
Q: "Aaitha?" (Are you done?)
A: "Aaithu"
Q: "What does tiger say?"
A: "Grrrrrr"
Q: "Whats your name?"
A: "Dhaa"

:-D. I also have a new bunny which sings and shakes its face/ears, I love dancing to its tunes. I can recognize many tunes - I do star shape in my hands and say "Appa" (for "Up above the world so high") whenever I hear the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle", I say "Yeeyaa yeeyaa" whenever I hear the tune of "Old McDonald", I clap my hands when I hear the tune for "If you are happy and you know it, clap your hands" and I say "bow bow" when mom sings "Nayi mari".

Hmm what else? I love to go to park and we try and go most evenings. I walk the entire way, while coming back they make me sit in the stroller. I'd rather walk :(. (Mom and dad keep laughing about it, but I'm trying to make a good impression here :-p). Also, I can climb up and slide on the slide on my own. Say hello to the new independent me :-D.

Lots of achievements for a 1.5 year old, don't you think? :-D. See ya later, alligator!
