Stop the presses!

My girl, who just turned nine months old last week, took her first three steps today. So obviously we have an unusually amazing baby here, who learned to clap and (sort of) wave at six months and now at is already saying "mamma" and taking her first steps. Saying "mamma" is obviously the most important skill of them all, but the rest is neat too and of course we expect other great things to follow. No pressure :)

Lila said "mamma"!

Twice. Plus a few less clear instances that we will not count to be completely fair, although Rohan says that he heard it clearly one other time. So let's say three times.

My boys' personalities

Conversation in the car:

Rohan - Mamma? Mamma? You know? A piece of my school has fallen down!
Mamma - Uhm.. really?
[A somewhat confusing exchange follows, in which we clarified that some plaster must have crumbled down from a wall at naptime]
Rohan - I don't know *how* it happend! Maybe there is a scratching monster! (giggling)
Rajiv - No, Rohan. (With just a hint of impatience) The cement between the bricks must have come loose and that's how the wall fell down. Maybe they will have to build it again.


But now worries: as of today, the school still stands.

Stomping Song

A video from September 2012. Appu sings for us a song he learned at school. I think it is in German, but nobody knows for sure.

Joy and Jubilee!

I have finally regained access to most of my photos and videos! There are things I had even forgotten about and as usual we all look much happier in the videos than we do in real life, so now I will be off to re-watch all of them to boost my spirits. I will be posting some too, soon, all depending on how the internet connection is behaving today.
