Introducing the super star - Ani!!

It's finally time to introduce the new super star in our life - Ani to this blog.  He turned one year old on the 7th of June this year.

I've done such a bad job at recording his milestones on this blog - so here's a quick quick update.  Ani was very quick to roll onto his tummy - he started doing this from the first week of September itself, when he was less than 3 months old.  He would try to move around for quite some time after that.. by dragging his tummy on the floor but it didn't work.  So he started crawling and learning to sit up in the first week of January - when he was almost 7 months old.  He was quick to stand up after that as well as move while holding onto something but he's not quite got the hang of standing or walking independently yet.

He speaks through signs as well as words, well the first sylabbles of most words.  He calls his thaa-thaa, his -kka for akka, says aaaah for cow, tak-tak for horse, baper for diaper, chis for chips, thitheth for biscuit, paa-paa for babies, appa and the like.  He said Pu-pa once for Pushpa, his grandmother's name but has not deigned to repeat it again.  He also says c-ock for clock and aaaay for the obvious ;-) He asks for thi-tha (water) and his favourite toy ba (ball).  He has a very expressive face and seems to be saying a lot of stories to you even when most of what he's saying is gibberish.  He can very clearly communicate his needs and wants.

I'll finish by putting up the image we created for his first birthday party invite.
