Twinkle twinkle little star

Dear Sarah,
I gave you a bath for the first time today and alhamdulillah, it was going quite well until I realized that your face was still oily from the massage and proceeded to wash your face for the second time... Then you began screaming bloody murder (and boy, can you scream...) so munawwar bi and mummy had to calm you down together.

I also wanted to note how cute you look when you stretch on waking up, like a teeny tiny starfish! you still won't make much eye contact with me but you will crane your neck in all directions to look at your Ammaarah Api/Baji (she still can't decide which) when she happens to come by. She also believes that there are times when you (intentionally) hit her or touch her foot or smile at her, and these become momentous events of the day.

You're becoming stronger now... Wanting to turn over so that you can lick the bed sheet when you get hungry or pushing the changing pad away with your feet and sliding upwards. It was a lot of fun to watch you play with your aunt too, she calls you her little gudda and played the yayy game with you. The game involves lifting up both your arms and going yayy after statements like this "mere mummy ka naam Peemmi hai... Yayy! Main Chennai ki hoon...Yayy! Mera favorite drink duddu hai...yayy!" sigh, her visit was so so short!


It's sooooooooo wonderful to be with you... But please do stop waking up at six in the morning and screaming when you can't figure out what to do with the rest of the day. Just tell me and i'll make sure we put it on your busy eat, poop, sleep, play-with-everyone-and-ignore-mommy-till-I'm-hungry schedule.  

Love,
Mommy
