Its been a while since I blogged! We bought a new house, moved and are still unpacking. Thats kind of hard when you are working full-time, have a toddler and nobody to help other than dear husband. But, now thats it is all behind us, we are loving the new place. Anoushka loves the space and is enjoying spring in her backyard.
I did feel sad leaving the old house. Mainly because that was the house Anoushka has so many of her firsts. It was her first home. It will always be captured in our minds and in the gazillion photos we have taken of Anoushka there.
In other news, Anoushka is talking, a lot. She is quite advanced for her age. She says about 50-75 words, She can count 1-10 in english and upto 4 in Marathi! She seems to have taken from her dad because when young kids typically learn to say easy words first, this little girl says watermelon, strawberry, engine driver! Her first complete word was kabootar. She also has very clear speech quite different from what I have heard other kids talk with a baby lisp or kiddie talk. She goes Poonam, Poonam if I don’t respond to Mummy!
The other day we had the sprinkler on in the evening and Anoushka would walk backwards counting 3,4,6,7,8,9,10 or until she felt some water droplets. She screams and then covers her mouth with her hands in traditional “i-won-the-miss-universe-title” style and comes running to us.
She is beginning to get the hang of hot and cold. But its hard to believe her when she says hot, hot to really pleasant bathing water! Or a nice meal of waran-bhaat-tup-limbu that I could devour if only it wasn’t hers! 😀
