Days in India were fabulous days of Liya's life. There are quite a lot of things she loved there and a few things she hated, as well. We 'll tell you one by one.Yes, I said that! The unsocial girl, loved being social and pet of everyone. The best part of being first child is that there will be a lot of people to pamper and watch each step we do as an infant, toddler and pre-schooler. So, you know what it will be if that child is coming home after an year of stay in a country which is far far away! Of course, unimaginably exciting!

Every one back in our home was counting hours to see her. At first sight, though she did not like a lot of people falling over her, kissing on her chubby cheeks and hugging her, soon she started loving it. She enjoyed being the center of attraction. We were expecting her to be silent and cranky at least for few days, but she did knew, identified and loved the company of each and everyone at home. Thanks to video chatting, we did not have to introduce anyone to her. She just knew all of them... How exciting!!!

Out of 3 weeks of our vacation, one week we spent at my parent's home and two weeks with my in-laws. She loved being with her grand parents, aunts, uncles, relatives and neighbors. She loved her cousins the most. She has two cousins- my nephew Hamiz he was just 3 months older then and J's niece Diya she is 5 years old.

The ultimate was happening when J's BIL, Diya's dad makes phone calls. Diya, otherwise she doesn't talk much to dad over phone (though shez dad's girl), wanted to talk but little Liya never allowed Diya to talk to her dad... Come on.. Why should she block her cousin D talking to D's pappa? So, whenever telephone rang at home, we had so much of fun. Both of them fighting for the phone, little Liya talking as if she is the 'rule' maker at home and my MIL within the mess, trying to figure out home to tackle the situation and make both her grand children happy...:)
Liya wanted to scribble in Diya's books, she wanted to do Diya's homework (he he), she did not let Diya wear her frocks but just behaved as if everything at home is hers and only hers...! But Liya just madly love Diya. Her Diyatha was her soul and life during our vacation. She was just walking behind Diya. Indeed we had a great time together.
By the way, one of the thing that we wanted to do before 3, is done. Yay, More to come!
