Yes my little one turned two today. Even now she seems to be like a dream. I got her on a Monday afternoon around lunch time.
She has changed me a lot, teaching me a lot of patience, laugh at her funny actions, and also gets me crazy at times. She has made our carpet very colorful with her ketchup, milk, orange juice, rice or whatever she eats. She creates havoc when she does get her way. We were not able to keep anything in the lower cupboards or drawers. Little giraffe will get hold of almost everything at her reach. She like to water the plants, but in reality she gets herself wet than watering of plants. Try to imitate what mom and dad do with her keen observation. She tries to speak occasionally mama, papa, taatha etc, showing her tummy first, then her nose, eyes and mouth when we ask her.
She likes to play with dirt, grass and whatever she can get hold off. She climbs the stairs with her knee; now has learnt to climb down in the reverse manner. She wants to keep the things in perfect place like mommy, showing her dad to keep shoes and coat in proper place. She can make a mess but others cannot, that is her rule. In night she makes sure that mommy sleeps next to her with occasional kicks and punches. Her day starts and ends with mommy. She likes to do taste test on everything that both mom and dad eats and drinks. In stores, she likes to smile at everybody and grab their attention. If somebody looks serious then by waving hands or smiling at them will melt down their seriousness. Love to do small work even sitting in the grocery cart by trying put to veggies or fruit in the bag. She walks less and more falling and running. I can go on writing more and more about her. As a mom she makes me proud.
Celebrating the d-day with small party and cakes I will later update the pictures. Here a bowl of Parippu Pradhaman/ Sweet lentil pudding.
