Standing on her feet

I am standing on my legs..:)
This lil girl often surprises us with unexpected moves. Yesterday was one of such days when she suddenly held hands on the couch and pushed up and 'stood on her feet'. I have often noticed that she does things very quickly, works hard to reach her goal, takes all pain and once she achieves what she intended, she remains calm and cool.

Liya completed 7 months..

..on 11th of this month. I can't imagine how fast the days flew by. Of course it was an amazing experience looking after her, seeing how she is growing up and learning new things every day.

By now,

- She understands that her mom wearing a scarf means that 'Mom is going out' , so be demanding. It is applicable for any one whom she loves.
- She speaks pappa, thaatha, kakka, vavva
- She knows taste very well, also conveys that 'I don't want anything which is NOT sweet'
- She closes her mouth strongly when she is given mashed rice
- DO NOT try to feed her rice even by adding sweet. She understand the smell and taste of rice.
- She loves steamed apple so much that she opens her mouth really quick if anyone approaches her with apple.

Liya learns to clap

Liya learned to clap yesterday midnight. She woke up at 11.30 and started clapping. Till then she didn't know how to bring both hands together and clap. She love to bang on her toys with both hands, but clapping was a brand new activity from her. We were happy that she has learned a new activity. Good. But she wanted to practice it and continued practicing for another half an hour. And the result: we slept very late yesterday..:)

I wonder why kids learn new things in the middle of night when the whole day is there for them nothing to do other than playing!!
