So I am now officially a toddler 😀 I wonder why mamma keeps moping that she is missing her ‘baby’! I thought she was in a hurry for me to grow up – Amma, remember those colic cries and cluster feeds when you would keep wondering (aloud!) when I’d grow out of all this !!
And I have caught amma giving me the stinky eye over my talking and walking milestones! I mean, I do keep blabbering to her through the day – but supposedly that doesn’t count. She wants me to talk clear coherent words ****Rolling eyes at her**** Also she doesn’t seem very happy about the fact that I have taken to calling everybodd everything) “amma” – from grandma to the overhead fan . See am trying to “communicate” but she doesn’t seem to be getting it!
And her favorite grouse is “walking”. Supposedly in her rule-book, I should be walking(if not running) by now considering I started crawling by eighth month. She says four months is more than enough to have mastered it! Ho the pressure of growing up I say…
I remember somewhere between 3 – 3.5 months when I hadn’t yet perfected the “rolling over” part – she would keep incessantly murmuring in my ears “Roll over, Roll Over”. Ho ho I better start taking things in my hand – what if she now invokes the walking mantra!
And in other news, around my birthday I popped my first teeth. Mamma was heard telling her friends that I acted as if I was “possessed” :-O
