Yes,I can’t stay away from this space..and since this blog was started majorly as a baby blog,I will keep it as that.. and now with Ananya also in picture,there is a lot of fodder for baby/big kid updates:)
Its been 5 weeks to Ananya’s birth today and it seems like she has always been with us:) Aadya is still in love with her sister,though she does have her moments when she can’t understand why so much fuss is being made about a tiny person.. and then the very next moment,she is back to touching her and smothering her with kisses.
Everytime,Ananya cries,Aadya is up on her haunches..If I am not in the same room,she comes running to call me..if I am in the bathroom,she tries to pick her up…umm that is scary..SO,I have taken to leaving Ananya in her crib,if I go to the toilet. Showers happen only when Sanj is at home. Aadi tries to make funny faces to cheer up the baby and tries to give her the pacifier..mostly it works..Anzie (yes thats the name her daddy picked for her 🙂 ),mostly listens to her sister’s voice and calms down.
But when all else fails,then Aadya tells me..”Mumma,I think she needs a diaper change!! or may be you should feed her!”
The other day,I told her that since she already knows so much about Ananya,why doesn’t she learn how to change her diaper..and she gave me a shocked look..when I asked her what happenned,she said,”Ohh! but I just want to be her sister,not her mommy!”..Anyway,I told her,big sisters can change diapers too and they can still remain sisters..So,yesterday,she asked me to teach her how to change diapers..As luck would have it,that was a poopy diaper.I told her,she could try the next time..and you know what she said,”Awww,its OK mommy,I don’t mind changing her Poo-ey diaper..she is my sister and I love her SOOOOO much”..And she did it.. wiped her sister’s bum,put on a fresh diaper..without squirming even once! And she was ready to do it again and again!!!
Thank you,God- I hope their love grows ten-fold every passing day! I am writing this down,so that when they are older and at each other’s throats and I am wondering why I had two of them,then I can read this and remember why:)
