Week eight

Following the tradition initiated with Appu, we took baby Rohan to see the new Harry Potter movie today. And just like Appu two years ago, little one didn't let us down and slept through the whole thing - tightly wrapped in his sling and rocked back and forth, with a hand over his ear to cover the loud noises. Now we are home and Rohan is making up for all the milk he missed in the last four hours.

Appu is at daycare with his friend Kalena and last time we heard he was having a great time. When we called just before the movie he was apparently lying down on his cot and making sweet eyes to one of the teachers to try and avoid the nap. Now we are off to pick him up with Kalena's mom. More later!

Update: we are back and Appu has gone to Kalena's house to play with the water table in the backyard. They play completely naked because they get drenched, but somehow S. always seems to forget to remove Appu's sandals. We'll see this time. I am so sad for Appu, thinking that soon he will have to say goodbye to his best friend. Kalena's parents have just bought a new laptop mostly for the purpose of allowing the little ones to talk to each other through Skype. It should be an interesting experiments, I wonder if they will like that.

On a different note, it seems that Appu is having quite frequent nightmares. Sometimes he wakes up screaming at night and nothing except putting on the light and leaving the room seems to comfort him. If I try to hug him he kicks me very hard, he is like an animal caught in a trap. It apparently happened at daycare too today, but the room wasn't dark and he calmed down easily. How I wish he could tell us what the problem is... It will have to remain a mystery, but it is one more sign of the fact that our little one is growing up and guessing his thoughts and fears is becoming more and more difficult.
