[Let's go interactive] Animal Sounds

Liya loves listening to animals sounds, she imitates many of them too. We had so much of fun playing the simple game 'Animal Sounds'.

23 months...

Yes, just a month away from 2 years of parenting and below are her latest antics and achievements.

* Schooling: As you know already, the biggest milestone achieved through the month is that she is heading to daycare twice in a week. It's been so much fun so far, not much of hassles. *Alhamdulillah*

Toddler Talk :: How to frighten?

It is a fact that we must not frighten kids. But, I am sure there will be some instances were we badly wish if our kid is 'afraid of' something or other in this world, right?

[Tour with PL] River cruising

06/27/2011 11.00 AM
Next day morning, first thing in our list was a cruise through New York harbor. A river cruise is always a perfect combo of any hectic trip. That can give you enough time to sit on a deck, relax and enjoy the beauty of the serene landscapes or  fairytale castles or glittering skyline while the tickling of cold breeze blows across your face!
 We opted for 2 hours trip.That was definitely the most tranquil part of the our tour.

Book of the Week :: Guess how much I love you!

Theme: Love
Our Pick: Guess How Much I Love You
Author: Sam McBratney

"Guess how much I love you," says Little Nutbrown Hare. Little Nutbrown Hare shows his daddy how much he loves him: as wide as he can reach and as far as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare, who can reach farther and hop higher, loves him back just as much. Well then lil Nutbrown Hare loves him right up to the moon, but that's just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare's love for him.
 A sneak peak at Liya's  day with the book.

Wordless Wednesday :: Henna designs on weeny hands

Growing up doesn't always mean that you become disciplined,
At times, it demands more chaos too...!

First Day At Daycare!

Beginning of the day: 
She was all thrilled to head to school. She had a nice bath, yummy break fast and dressed up really quick. *Kids are well disciplined and obedient if they smell the delight of going out.* As we stepped into the school, her eyes were sparkling with inquisitiveness. I took her around the room, she was ecstatic to see a lot of toys and bunches of friends. But she got a whiff of eccentric happenings around her and wanted to snuggle into my arms. Her little hands slowly clung to my thighs and did not let me move.

[Let's go interactive] Coloring time

Does your child enjoy coloring with crayons? Liya loves it. She doesn't 'color' but scribble everywhere. That's fine, she is too small to 'color' a pic. We often color some interactive coloring pages, as well.

We had a wonderful time coloring Oochy with touch-pad and mouse, as was he was having fun at circus. Have a look at the pic below and enjoy how we colored Oochy- the seal.

You wanna color Oochy...? Click here and have fun. There are quite lot of coloring games available in internet. Google it and brush up your creative skills. :)

I'm in the spotlight today

I'm super thrilled to be spotlighted over at About a Mom. Thank You so much Angela, for choosing us. We are touched and honored by your love.

Hop over to About A Mom and join the fun.

The big day for little girl!

Did I share with you the big news? Yesterday was little Liya's first ever day at school. Yes, she is too small for schooling hence I enrolled her in a daycare. So, two days in a week are gonna be much different than usual for both mom and girl.
All set for a first day!

Toddler Talk :: Tricks with Stories

I have been dying to share some mommy-girl moments with you. Time wasn't permitting me. Better late than never, so here you go!
Liya's cooking - Banana Water Shake
Incident one:
I share a lot of stories with Liya, (as you know- many of them we read through books) OR some I build up myself to 'fit' in the context and distract her from usual temper tantrums, whining or clinginess. If she behaves fussy during her mealtime or if she doesn't show any sign of sleep but play with her toys, late in the night, I weave stories and share with her.

Book of the Week :: Clip- Clop

Book of the Week Theme: Let's play
We Chose: Clip-Clop 
Written by: Nicola Smee
What's it all about?
Mr. Horse is very generous and blows a question 'Who wants a ride'? The barnyard friends-  a cat, a dog, a pig and a duck, were exhilarated by the stunning offer- and climbing aboard, one after another for a cruise ride on horse.
Clip- Clop, Clippity- Clop...
...and then?
Every one enjoys the feeling of getting twirled of tossed...Don't you?  The naughty friends feel that Mr.horse is not running really fast and they request to go a little faster! 

Wordless Wednesday ~ Mix, match and exchange!

I'll do it myself...
I am not afraid of the mistakes I may commit,
I rather learn from each of those!
