"Cham Ai Yam, Cham ai Yam, do yoo like geen egg a ham? " - Nanma's current favorite. Unfortunately we only have the paperback version of Green Eggs and Ham and so the book only comes out when Amma is around.
At our beach. With Nanma and her best friend/main rival- Samaya. Also known as "yaya" or "Chamaya". I call it "our" beach. But in reality, we share it with the others who live on our street on weekdays (like this one) and half of Chennai's population on weekends.
A close up of the lil foof we call 'Yaya'. Her mom (u can see her lovely legs in the BG) is my bestest friend and I do hope she and Nanma grow up to be besties too! As of now, they love hugging each other but are fierce rivals when it comes to toys, books and people they love.
Nanma goes to the beach to collect "shellish". We're trying to collect as many as she can. The blue thing in her hand is a sieve. She mostly uses it to dig. She loves digging a hole, putting her feet in and then covering it with sand.
Two chubby feet. My friends have always teased me about my fingers and toes. One of my prayers for my daughter was that she'd not inherit my finger and toenails. But God sometimes likes to tease me too, and so he gave her just that!
Us again! I still remember the first time we took her to the beach. She was 7 months old and HATED it. I guess the sand under her feet, the wide expanse of water before her and the cold water were a shock. She cried like...well, a baby! Now she's almost 2 years old and its so hard to get her out!
Cuddletime before bed. I will always cherish these moments. We tickle each other silly and then talk about all that happened that day followed by bedtime prayer. I know I won't have her as a little cuddly bundle for too long and so these times are precious!
Here's one I couldn't help posting. This is her potty face. Teh one thing that hasn't changed since she was about 4 months old. Don't worry. She's not in pain. Just concentrating.
