He’s the one I love talking about, ‘coz he talks soo much these days! He’s the cynosure of all eyes at home. Every action of his is novel and causes wonderment. He’s the unanimous darling of all folks in the family. His winsome lop-sided smile, his mischievous grin and cute gestures just bowls one over. One look and you’d want to cuddle him no end. He’s the naughty li’l one, my now-nearly-2 year old cousin bro, Ankit πŸ˜€

If you give it a thought, you’d realize that there’s nothing that’s not adorable about him! His chweet baby talk, his way of calling out after everyone – ranging from the ‘Pasa papa’ for his dad, whose good name happens to be Prasad, to his ‘dachchi’ for the maid Lakshmi; his way of repeating what you say in his own warbled tongue; his pitty-pat steps around the house; his innumerable untiring climbs up and down the stairs, with one of us tired and impatient adults in tow; his inimitable imitations of the animal sounds – from the pussy’s meeeaow to the lion’s aagrrro, complete with facial expressions; his Red-Indian whoops and percussion performances with the household utensils; his obsession with all thingies four-wheeled…the list, as I said is endless!

As people following my blog would know, one of my life’s regrets was that I could not get him to call me by name. These days, the scene’s a little better – he now calls me ‘deedi‘. Though he is also able to now say ‘akka’ he somehow cannot fathom the fact that I can be deedi and akka at the same time! πŸ˜€ However, he stubbornly refuses to call me Anu 😦 Currently, I have to make do with a ‘deedi akka’ but I’m sure, the day is not far when the house rings with the rendition of my name in his honey-sweet voice πŸ™‚

For the moment, he’s out visiting his granny and we just can’t wait to have him back!
For those interested, here’s how the cutie-pie looks πŸ™‚

    The best thing that I like about children is that one can forget oneself while playing with them… πŸ™‚

    Yes, we do have the tradition, in fact it should’ve been done by now, but got delayed as my grandpa passed away recently.So, till a year goes by, this fella’s gotta look like mini-Sai Baba! πŸ˜€
    So absolutely true, one gets to be a kid all over again when one plays with a kid πŸ™‚
