I think, people are right in saying that the youngest child in the family always remains young in the minds of the parents. I objectively say that I don’t pamper him. At least, I try not to :). But, it is difficult to not succumb to his charms when he asks for something in his sweet voice.
He is always willing to give a kiss or a hug. And, no matter, what other tensions or troubles weigh on your mind, he will prop himself on my lap or Gurdev’s and talk in his baby voice or just give us tight hugs and kisses till we lighten up. He is not one to hold grudges. And, even after firing him, the very next minute he is smiling and hugging us. Gurdev and I have named him our little stress buster :). He is a really sweet child, and very soon he will be 4 years old!
It seems pretty amazing, and it really feels like a few days ago when I held this wrinkled baby in my arms, all squirmy and crying. Today, he is a very cute and shy child with an amazing smile. And, when he sleeps, he is so adorable that I can just keep looking at him…..
And, he speaks so beautifully. His sentences are grammatically correct and not the normal baby tongue, we hear from kids in age. I am a little finicky about language and take a lot of pride in this.
These days, we do a lot of coloring with crayons, together. That and his little cars are his passions in life.
