How much our life has changed! That small 5kg thing is now the center of attraction. Life is slowly getting in terms with its new role and we are enjoying every moment of it. The nappy changes are much easier than I thought. Even those greenish black sticky things did not feel like shit. Things like the changing colour (green to yellow) and texture (sticky to granular) of her potty made us happy. Never thought that even shit can bring so much joy. Someone rightly said, there is nothing bad in this world.
She is changing every day gifting us those precious ‘first’ moments. Slowly from a passive doll that could just eat, sleep and cry, she is becoming human. She was 20 days old when smart lil Hridhima found out a new way to wake up when she was hungry. She grabbed her hair, pulled it, and started crying. Somewhat like Abhimunyu, she learned to grab things, but still had no idea how to let go.
Her senses started to develop with time. We took her around letting her smell different fragrances, hear different sounds, see different things around. Amongst all the things our white ceiling is her favorite. She can look at it all day making us wonder what’s so special about it. Soon she realized that she has a pair of hands. From that moment onwards all she wanted was to eat them. Those are her first toys, and what a wonderful toy they are, stupid adults can ever understand. Apart from her hands and the white ceiling, she also began to recognize us. She now looks directly into our eyes, follows our movements, and wants to be with us. She hates being alone.
She also learned to talk. We talk a lot with her, read her books. And she reciprocates.
