I could draw too!

May 16, 2007

I can be a painter too!

There are all these things that I’m discovering that I can do.  It is sooo exciting!  Ujwala Pachi has made some drawings of me and with all these hidden talents that I’m discovering I think I  could draw too!   And Pachi, how about some from recent photographs?

all that hard work
It’s been a while and I need to update my blog.  It’s just that I’ve been so busy.  Catching up will take some time and I couldn’t wait to share some good news with you.  But I’m not putting up the photos that you’d expect to see. Here’s one of me sleeping instead.  Now for the news – I’m what you’d call “potty trained” now and gosh my parents are so proud of me. I didnt know it was such a big deal!

Swinging is one more new thing that I’ve tried and really enjoy. Growing up is turning out to be fun filled and exciting and now if only they’d stop playing dumb and reply to all my questions it would be fantastic. They act as though they cant understand me and seem to be trying hard. If I can understand them why cant they understand me?? I’ll just learn their language as these things come easy to me. The poor dears dont seem to be able to pick up things quite as quickly.

what do you call these things?

Mundan 6 - With my mother

I knew that something special was up. I had special clothes, there were lots of people and my mother and father were all dressed up too. As a part of our hindu rituals for a child I was going to get my head tonsured. The ceremony is called a Mundan. The sun was filtering in, there were nice smells in the air and I fell asleep. When I woke up things felt much cooler and ooh I looked different suddenly. Dont know why Mummy was crying, I had a great time especially when they were showering me with flower petals! Amongst others Amama, Abu, Dada, Dadi, Kitty and Maina bua made it to Jamshedpur. My cousins Jehaan and Anya were there too with Monish Phupad. My masis didnt make it. I hope you like the photos. You can see more here on Shutterfly.

with mommy

A girl’s got to cry when she’s got to cry. With the family’s reputation at stake I need to build up my lung capacity. 😛 And this is a good time to do so as at my age folks pretty much ignore the yelling and screaming.

And sometimes inappropriate moments seem just perfect. Have to have some fun sometimes and get to see that priceless expression on mummy’s face – embarassment!
