My little Chhori

Recently I talked about how we are trying to wean Chhori off her night feed. Well it’s been more than 3 weeks and it is working well. I have to say a big thanks to dear hubby as I have been sleeping well (7-8 hours a day) for the last 3 weeks.

There is also progress with Chhori as her night awaking has lessened and we hope in a few more weeks she will sleep through the night easily.

But last night, I felt a hurt (being a typical mum I guess). Our normal night time routine is, after dinner, I breastfeed Chhori for a while then, AS takes Chhori to the room to sleep. I think, these days she has started understanding that mummy is not coming to the room to sleep with her.

So I was breastfeeding last night when AS went inside the room and put on the rhyme he plays to put Chhori to sleep. As soon as she heard it, she paused her feeding and tried to find out where rhyme was coming from. When she realised that it was coming from the room, she stop feeding, got off my lap, off the sofa and went inside. She didn’t even turn back. Normally I kiss her good night but because I was not expecting swift her action, I felt a pinch in my heart.

Don’t get me wrong. I am extremely happy that she is at this stage now. It is just that I need to get used to all these changes in her as well. In a few months’ time, I am planning to stop breast feeding altogether so I am sure there will be many more moments like this.

She is growing bigger every day and she is becoming smarter as well. These days, we have tea party. But she is adamant that we only use specific cups. The pink one is hers while the purple is mine and green is for grandma.

We do pretend to drink and eat. We got her a toy kitchen so she cooks and cleans as well. I love how she uses the toy tap and pretends to clean her hands and dishes.

Also she enjoys blocks and things with caps on. She also likes shape sorter toys and I am glad it keeps her busy. I hope she will speak a more words soon and I can talk to her 🙂 .

I am loving every moment being a mum and it is definitely one of the best feelings in the world.

Do share what you do with your time with your kids. What are some good toys and games for a toddler for their development and to keep them engaged?

Take care,

We are “Pokémon Go” family

I went back and forth on whether or not to write about this, but decided to go ahead as it is my personal blog where I share what is happening in my life and Pokémon Go is definitely happening at this stage.

I am sure everyone is aware of Pokémon GO, which has been dominating the news for the last few weeks. Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you must have read or heard about the about this game around the world. I found out about Pokémon GO the same way too and it got me curious.

I didn’t know much about Pokémon at all expect the cute Pikachu before last week. For anyone who is not aware of it, Pokémon Go is a new mobile game released recently which is taking over the world. It is a game that uses GPS and to go to locations as a means of actually ‘Checking In’ at nearby stores, businesses or weird graffiti on the wall.

So I decided to download the game just to find out what it is all about. That evening I mentioned it to AS because normally he is very into things like this. He used to play Ingress (a similar game created by the same people) religiously a few years ago. Not to my surprise at all, he was already playing the game for the last 24 hours. He insisted that I start playing it as well but I told him, I will wait until the weekend so I have time to actually play.

But I didn’t sign up for a few days. One day, a colleague’s daughters (9 and 11) came to visits us at work. They were playing Pokémon GO and I took them for a walk to the nearby shopping center so they could catch some Pokémons. Anyway watching them so excited, I thought I needed to start playing it as well.

So finally on the weekend we went to the parks and places around our area to play the game, I saw signs around my neighbourhood that I never knew even existed. I also saw many people playing the games, couples with young kids, family with older kids and just teenagers.

I am glad Chhori was so happy to be out and about and AS was happy to be playing the game. I enjoyed it too and I am on Level 7 now 🙂

I have to admit I am not as crazy as many around the world or even as AS but I find the game very interesting to play if you have some free time.

It definitely makes you walk around and search for Pokémons. making you active but like we have heard so much on the news these days, you need to be aware of your surroundings so you don’t have an accident or worse, get mugged.

So far it has been only 78 hours of Pokémon for me and we have become a Pokémon family for sure. Let’s see how I go in the future.

So are you playing the game yet? Do share some fun stories about it.

Happy Monday.

Chhori : growing up too fast

I can’t believe how quick kids grow up. I believe it now when people say that all you need to do is have kids and they will grow up; you don’t even remember how time flies by.

Chhori is 16 months now and she constantly manages to surprise us.

These days, she wants to eat her own meal. So she sits in her chair, she can strap herself in if she wants to and then waits for the tray to be put on the chair. Then she patiently waits for her food. Once the food is on the tray, she wants a fork and she feeds herself. It is so cute to watch her eat.

I have to admit, she might grow up to be a patient one unlike her mum. It sometimes takes her few attempts to get her food on the fork but she is very persistent and keeps going until she has them on her fork. There were times when she got frustrated and threw her fork but she is getting better at it. She loves her independence.

It is easier for us as well. If there is food she can eat using a fork, like meat, pasta, noodles, veggies, fruits, we cut them into small pieces and give it to her and she will eat it all. Of course, she makes a mess as well but it is all a learning process.

I still haven’t given her rice and lito as she is not very good with a spoon and only 50% goes into her mouth. So that will be our next goal once she masters the fork. But we still are quite proud parents.

She also managed to surprise me with her dancing. From very early on she has managed to copy the actions from the rhymes on Youtube but this one was very special. I didn’t know that AS was teaching her but he asked me to come to the living area on the weekend.

So when I got there, AS asked Chhori to bring a teddy bear. She got a big pink one and AS started to sing the rhyme “Teddy bear teddy bear turn around” doing the action with the teddy bear. I was pleasantly surprised when Chhori joined and did all the right moves with the rhymes. So the rhyme goes like this

Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Turn around!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Touch the ground!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Jump up high!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Touch the sky!

Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Bend down low!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Touch you toes!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Turn out the light!
Teddy bear, teddy bear,
Say good night!

Chhori was doing all the right action and the best and cutest part was when she was turning around, doing the full circle. She is doing it so well and I am so happy to watch. This father-daughter team means a world to me for sure.

I am sure every kid goes through this phase and every parent has these happy moments. Please share yours and let me know what I can look forward to :).

Have a good day everyone and take care.
