Tales from Aadyaland

My Little Froggie

Date- August 21st,2007
Time- 8.15 pm
I was getting aadya ready for bed. Our bed-time routine starts at around 7:30 pm wih a massage,followed by tummy-time and bath.Then,moisturise,get into PJs,a few minutes in the crib with the butterflies and then rock off to dreamland.
That day,after finishing the body massage,I sat Aadya up for a head massage. She has been sitting with support for quiet some time now.And after the head massage,I just let her sit with the support of my folded legs.I saw her lean towards the mat. I didnt really pay attention to it.That’s because these days,she is so attracted to colors.And tries to touch the pattern on the sheet or mat,even on our clothes.So,I let her lean,thinking she is probably found something interesting on the mat. but she just stayed that way leaning downwards.So I looked to see what was it that she was so interested in.And what do I see? My little girl is trying to focus all her energy into sitting. She was concentrating on balancing her weight on her hands! I slowly slipped away from her.. And there she was Sitting!! All by herself!! Like a froggie!
Two little fists, digging into the rug, one tiny head focusing on staying that way. I called out to DH,he came running not knowing what was going on.He just looked at Aadya and smiled. and then I slipped even further away from her! And His eyes widened!!OUR BABY WAS SITTING UNAIDED FOR THE FIRST TIME!! DH grabbed the camera.And clicked her pics. She stayed that way for a good 3-4 minutes,even raising her head victoriously and smiliing at her dad!

( P.S. This picture was taken next day.And though it does look like she has the support of my leg,there was a good 3-4 inches distance between her butt and my foot!)

I was so proud!Am so proud of my little Angel.We sent SMSes to everyone! And then there were calls from proud grandparents.And this little achiever,oblivious to all the frenzy she had created!
Another milestone,another achievement,another sign that she growing up. My baby is growing up!
God bless you,my little froggie!
