Of late, Anirud isn’t able to attend his swimming lessons regularly. It so happens that on the recent Saturday mornings, either he is not well or we have something important on hand that makes us to pass this over.
When Anirud gets excited for certain things, he says “aiiiiiii” with a super bright glow on both his eyes. Another buzzword that has caught him is “hmmmmm”. He answers with a prompt “hmmm” whenever he is asked something.
In the recent days, Anirud seems to grasp our instructions very clearly. On the other day, when he was asked to do something involving few different actions, he threw us a surprise by doing all that in the right order.
Now, Anirud can point out his head, eyes, ears, nose, hands and legs. Only thing is that very often, he mistakes his mom’s bindi to be her eyes. Hopefully, one day he will realise that his mom doesn’t have any third eye.
Anirud is speaking more words after the recent round of fever. Not sure what the connection is, but after he recovered from his fever, we are able to understand his words properly despite the ‘mazhalai’ accent. It feels good that he calls us ‘Appa / Amma’ properly and also ‘Daddy / Mummy’, despite the fact that we didn’t teach him the later.
When Anirud repeated “Oh No!” – that was said by someone in the telly, his accent was as British as a Fish and Chips shop. This is not to say that he will be speaking in British accent all the time in the future. Just that he is able to take in the little things from the TV and deliver back in the same style.
Guess what.. Anirud is so fond of bitter gourd. We are taken aback that he has taken a liking to such a bitter tasting veggie.
