Nanya has been making us smile and look at her with awe,with all the new things she has been saying lately. Aadi is home,so it means more tv time for Nan too and she now sings all the jingles of the cartoon shows- the one for My little Pony and Power Puff girls.She knows all the characters on both the shows and LOVES Baby Looney tunes and The Garfield Show and rattles off the names of the characters as they flash on the screen.
She has to know everything that’s going on in the house..if someone opens the main door(the safety door is noisy),she drops whatever she is doing and runs to the door,screaming,”Hey Wait-a-me!” She sees me cooking/eating/reading and she asks,”Mummmm,whatare you making/eating/weeding?” I love her baby talks.specially the words that are still not clear. I do worry sometimes,about the unclear words.But when I think about it,I realize its because she is a hurry to talk..she has to be,if she has to get in any words,with her chatter-box sister.When she takes the time to slow down,most words come out perfectly..except,R is still W and S is silent 😀
I love it how she understands now,when I try to explain something to her.Like the night we went to the drive-in movies,as soon as I put her in the car-seat,she started crying,then continued screaming loudly,for the next 5 minutes,till SD didn’t pullover to a side. I got down and tried to calm her down..I explained to her calmly that the movie was over and we had to go home,and so she had to stay in her car-seat and she stopped crying.She wasn’t happy about it,but she hugged me tight and sniffled,”OK Mum” I gave her bottle and blanket and she sat quietly for the rest of the trip.
She is starting to understand when she does something wrong and that mumma is cross.When I put her on the naughty chair,she actually sits there,looking sad.But,she will not say sorry to the wronged party(SD or Aadi) till I don’t give her a hug.Once I have given her a hug,she will happily say sowwie to whoever. She says sorry so happily..seriously,even if she ends up bumping into a chair or toy,she says sowwie hi-chair!LOL
Today,we were watching TV and Aadya said something rude and I was telling her off and she got upset and started crying..Nanya took one look at her sister and she got so mad at me and then she told me off!!! It was so funny and cute.I told her to stop getting mad at me and to say something to her sister and she put her hand up and said..”No mumma..No telling Aadu.. go mumma..” and to Aadya,”come on Aadu..naughty mumma”. No I didn’t get mad.. I just started laughing and so did Aadya,our fight forgotten.
Oh and when I write about Nanya,how can I not write about how she wakes me up. Did I tell you,the girls have been sleeping in their room in their own bed.Ok technically its the double bed in the guest room,but they have been sleeping there,for the last week or 10 days.There are still occasions when SD or I have to sleep with them,because one of them is unsettled or comes to our bed,but otherwise,we are all better rested,these days 🙂 So,when Aadya wakes up and I am still sleeping,she sneaks out to watch TV.When Ananya wakes up and I am still sleeping,she sneaks into my room and pulls the covers,pokes my eyes,with her little fingers and says,”I WANT CHAI-COCO(choclate milk!)” yup! So there is no sleep-ins,for me.But,as bizzare as it sounds,I love it when she wakes me up like that..Perfect start to the day,because serious,that is just an indication of how the rest of the day will be like..crazy,loud,chaotic and fun!
Speaking of crazy,loud,chaotic and fun,you know what else is all that? Everybody Loves Raymond.SD and I love the show and he bought the whole series ( a gift from me to him!!) and we’ve been watching it every night when the kids are in bed.. and we’ve been splitting our sides laughing … Next on our list after this is the Friends series..:D
