19th month interests of my cutie …

I bought a small pack of crayons for her , to show her the world of colors . Slowly she is gaining interest in it. With this passing month she is more interested in few adorable things which i just wanted to jot down :

Climbing up stairs is the most popular game .Although she learnt coming down by sitting and sliding down step by step just yesterday.

Dancing to the music is also something which she is enjoying nowadays and she looks adorable with those cute steps.

Pressing the PUSH button to open the doors ! Its comic but she loves it 🙂

Solving puzzles specially the one with animals and cars is also a good game to keep her busy for a while.Its so surprising that she finds the game interesting only till the time she is able to solve puzzles without help by her own !!!

Long Weekend..Happy Thanksgiving :-)

Saturday was a good day start for weekend because we had a birthday party to attend 🙂

My baby loves company of older kids and i also get a break from household tasks .We have a group of friends in our apartment and all the kids of almost of same age .Saturday was Adi’s birthday and all the moms decided to cook something for other kids and friends.I packed my muffins for all.Glad that they all liked them.

These kind of meetings are important not all for moms but kids as well.They meet other friends, interact and eat together,learn to play and share toys with them.they try to copy each other and grasp more from their age as compared to what we teach them.

For mommies, its a nice chit-chat session, sharing their joy and sorrow ,getting furious and yelling on our little toodlers and then feeling guilty later ,their phases of growing up and planning for another one ….n..blah…blah !!

Of course we get new recipes to try for our fussy eaters !!

By the time we were back , my princess was so tired that she slept within few minutes.

Sunday was a good day as well.We went to roundhouse park in morning .Round house is very popular it is a home to Toronto Railway museum and a mini steam train ride.My cutie pie saw the train so close first time and she was very excited but we missed the train ride because of technical issues with train.

Evening was booked for grocery shopping.

Monday was a happy day too.We planned to drive up North to view fall colors .By the time we decided to leave , my little A was down for nap.It was past 3 pm when she woke up . By the time she finished her bath and lunch it was  4 pm so we changed the plan and took a walk to park for train ride.

She was very enthusiastic to  ride the train but when it whistled and starting moving,she was scared and started crying “Mama mama”.We were sitting right behind the engine so the sound was too loud for her delicate ears.The steam jet flushing out of the train and spraying her with  was something which she has never had before.

The whole experience was quite overwhelming for her !

To cheer her up , we went to swings and slides on the other end of the park and she was happy again.

Smile on her face is what i long for !

Company of other kids, swings and fresh air makes her day and i realised,we should bring her to park more often !

My first encounter with MUFFINS……

I developed interest in cooking and baking only after my little one started eating whole food.Whatever is cook or bake is tasted by her. If she finish the whole bite and wants more then  I AM A WINNER !!! else i loose but its fine because that gives me an inspiration to try something new.Also I applaud her sense of understanding of good and bad taste.

My daughter has been a good eater till now by God’s grace so i am always scared that one day she will get bored of the usual food .New recipes which are healthy , easy to cook / bake and requires very less ingredients are my best choice.

And any one of then is always on my “TO DO” list for weekend.

This weekend is THANKSGIVING !! My daughter hardly understands what does it mean but it gives me an extra day off from work and an opportunity to try something new.

We have a  birthday party  to attend tomorrow which is a potluck as well so i decided to bake MUFFINS !

These are Avacado and Blueberry Muffins which needs no oil / butter ! Hurray !! MY kind of feast ! And I am on it !

Here goes the pictures 🙂

I found this delicious recipe here :- Avacado-Blueberry muffin

My dear daughter for whom i did all this hard work, didnt find the blueberries very interesting so ate only the portion without it so i will omit blueberries next time.

She had been rambling CAAR….and just two days back started WATER..

VOW !!!  My little mermaid is improving her vocabulary and gaining more words in her dictionary.So now there are four consistent words..

MAMA..

PAPA…

CAAR..

WATER….

She is 18 months this month so babbling a lot and even her daycare teacher told me that she murmured “RIDE BIKE”  few days back..Two words combined…Incredible !

OH…and once she said her name “ANAYA” !! Voila….sounds so precious to me !!

She is starting now to recite names of  her daycare friends ..easiest ones ! EMMA…

I feel as if I am learning talking along with her. Every new word she speaks gives me immense satisfaction that she is getting better with every passing day.

Diring her 18th month vaccination her doctor asked me if she can say atleast 8-10 words . when i started counting it was more than 15..

MAMA, PAPA , HAHA , CAR , NANA , BABA , VOW ,COW , TATA , BIYEE , HI , DAL , BALL , QUACK , RUSK , BAHR ,WATER

I was so relieved 🙂
