10 months flew by!

So like the blink of an eye..err okay it was not that easy but then yes it has been 10 months since I stepped into mammahood. Our 51cm baby has crossed 75 cm now (paternal genes you see), toothless smile to the 6-teeth naughty grin, crawling all over the house within seconds and trying to stand holding onto all the not-so-baby-friendly stuff in the house, opening cupboards, banging on glass, telling long stories with the 3 letter vocabulary that he has expertise on..the list goes on or rather it is now that I realise how powerful our sensory organs are at working simultaneously :)
Besides all the usual cribbing about dirty diapers, sleepless nights, cranky baby, shabby house, we have started realising that there is so much more to it. That connect we feel when he responds to our emotions, the twinkle in his eyes when he looks at us before he does something mischievous,  those tight hugs and nibbles on the cheek, clinging on to us when he fears separation, how he crawls towards us when in joy or needs comfort is something beyond all the efforts we put in.
Sometimes Sooraj and myself just sit and watch him smile at us and we smile at each other, which is in a way complimenting ourselves for our efforts and little sacrifices.
