Happy 12 months!


Birthday boy, today you turned BIG 1! What a great milestone!

What an exciting year this has been! The whole year just went by in a fly for me. Since a few days now, my mind's been rushing back to this time last year. Having you has been the most beautiful thing and I can't stress enough, how precious you are!

I am going to miss your first year of growing up minus the sleepless nights! ;) So glad I was with you this whole time!

This month was out of ordinary. You've become a total copy cat. It's cute to see you mimic our words and actions.

You're growing naughtier by the minute and having so much fun doing that.






One day you surprised me by getting in between one of the safety doors...



and pushing the whole thing all the way to the wall. That's when I thought to myself that the fun is just beginning! ;)


We are now in Spring and have had some beautiful days. We enjoyed them by going to the parks a lot. Our favorite is Clemyjontri park but mostly we go to Great Falls Grange which is closer to our house.

You love to swing! A smile comes on your face naturally when I am putting you in it! :)





One day we also went to the farm park.


There you saw,


lambs

horse


ducks and


goats.


There you also went behind the tractor wheel.


This month, you had your first play date! It was with Seher at the library. Samad, Arjun and Aanya joined too!


I gave you a puzzle a play with


and you got a score!!


After spending some time at the library, you guys also went to the park nearby and had a ball!



You did your first climb this month when you climbed our bed and then there were more to follow!



You can now actually use the stacker the way it is meant to be! You can stack and unstack!


You took your first few steps on your own! Such big milestone! This was so exciting!

You have now been taking steps every now and then but mostly you've been walking with the walker, or anything that you can push whether that's your music table or rocking chair!



You have learned a few new words to say. You can now say "Apple", "Good" and "Cool"!! Pretty cool, isn't it!! :)

Whenever you see someone leave, you say "Ba", which means "Bye":)

You can also clap your hands when asked! Very impressive! :)

You started to open the kitchen cabinets, so we now have secured them.




 However, the minute you see us opening any cabinet, you come rushing!


Weekends were fun time with Dad!





One day I caught you two reading together! :)


Dad even decided to get in your crib one day and you two had fun! :)


 You've been very active, so much so that there have been times when you have slept in your high chair!


Nani Ma arrived a few days back and was thrilled to see you. You guys are now playtime buddies! :)



Today you are with all the people who were here when you were born. What a blessing and such great way to celebrate the day!





More family will be joining us tomorrow for a celebration!

While some family members couldn't be here, they are thinking of you and have sent you their love, best wishes and gifts.

That's how you started the morning today; by opening your presents! :)








In the evening, Nani Ma, Sumit Mamu, Dad and I took you to our favorite Clemyjontri park.

You had the most fun sliding



exploring!

 rocking and
 swinging! :)


Cutting the special cake baked by Ammi was a perfect end to your day! A memory I will cherish forever!






Sweetie, you are an apple of our eye. We all love you a LOT. Stay blessed!

Today I gift you a song which is also my wish for you.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.



Happy 1st birthday, my love! I love you to the moon and back!

Mama
