As soon as my baby turned 6 months old, he surprised me by sitting on his own. My happiness was beyond the limitJ He enjoyed sitting on his own and falling and rolling down on the bed. Amazing thing is that he also started crawling a few steps at the same time.
Now, Aastik comes crawling to me somehow falling and rolling when I stand at one corner of the bed and calls him with my open arms. It is a wonderful feeling that my little wonder is attached to me so much that he does whatever he can do to come in my arms.
In his 6th month, he got to celebrate many parties. He also visited a Five Star Hotel for the 1st time in his life– Hilton Hotel in Janakpuri. My baby showed full mannerism there without irritating us or crying there. He also attended the 1st family function this month and got the deserved attention from all the relatives.

As soon as, Aastik turned 3 months old, I saw a new change in him. He is now eager to sit and feels bored lying down all the time on the bed or in his cot. He enjoys when I make him sit in my lap.
My little prince has made me pack his carry cot, as he slips out of him or cries in it. He loves strolling in his stroller now! The bond between my baby and me is growing more, as now he recognizes my voice too and turns his neck from where I talk to him. This in fact, makes his Papa jealous that he is a Mumma’s boy and loves me more than him.
Finally, after getting bored of sleeping on his back, Aastik has now decided to lie on his tummy. It just takes him a second to come on his tummy and have a peep a-boo of the room. I must say, my baby is very intelligent, as he knows Mumma doesn’t lets him lick his thumb when he lies straight, so he turns on his tummy and licks the thumb hiding from me! But Mumma is Mumma and he is caught doing so!
This month, Aastik has increased volume when he shouts and most of the time he shouts when he doesn’t sees me around, so I have told his Papa to bring some face masks for me so that I can hide from him and he doesn’t gets the habit of seeing my face all the time!

I have seen babies sucking their thumb but my Aastik sucks not just his thumb but sometimes his whole fist in the 3rd month. Most of the time his palms are covered in his mittens, but the moment I remove his mittens he is on his job of sucking his thumb. He even tries to do so with his mittens on.
This month, we took Aastik third time for vaccination (IPV 1st Dose, Rotavirus 1st Dose). My poor little baby cried but then slept without much pain! I must say he is a brave baby boy!!!
Aastik also made his 1st trip to a nearby park this month in his stroller with Mumma, his aunt and two sweet cousin sisters. I couldn’t control myself clicking his photos amidst beautiful flowers. He too gave a perfect toothless smile amidst flowers.
Aastik is getting naughtier this month and I can’t stop my smile watching him turning and rolling towards me like a ball. He has also started grasping my clothes in his powerful fist this month! Aastik uses his powerful hands to play not with his Baby Gym’s toys but to remove its stand from its place and sometimes he even kicks it!!!
I must say my small son is truly keeping up to his name, “Aastik”, as he enjoys listening Mata’s Aarti in his 1st Navratras. This time, we won’t have to search for a small boy with 9 small girls for Kanjak, as our little Aastik is here!!!

With the starting of the 3rd month, the best thing has happened for me, as Aastik has started recognizing his mummy. He smiles looking at me in a very naughty manner. He is getting playful more this month and loves when someone talks to him in his manner.
Aastik needs to be attended well now, as he moves from pillow very often and can also turn to 90 degree if made to sleep straight on his mattress. During night, I have to make him lie straight thrice or even four times, because he gets into me turning way from his mattress.
In his cot also, he moves from one end to the other, as if trying to move out of it tearing it off. We celebrated Aastik’s 1st holi at home and he looked at me with surprise and then smiled seeing colors on my face. His Nanu and Nani got a cool pram for him for his 1st Holi. Aastik says thanks to his loving Nanu and Nani.
This month, Aastik has done many things 1st time. Not just his 1st Holi festival, he also made his 1st out of

Finally, me and Aastik are back from his Nanu house and before going to home, we(he, his Papa and me) with his Nanu and Nani went to Jhandewalan Mandir to take blessings for him.
Aastik simply loves being without a nappy. After getting three vaccinations (BCG, OPV, HepB) in the 1st month, my baby got his next set of vaccinations (DPT, HepB 2nd dose) in his 2nd month. Apart from this, I also got him OPV this month. Though, the doctor warned us that he might get fever or cry but my strong baby was well after the vaccination.
My poor baby is coughing and sneezing a bit this month, but I m giving him the medicine s told to me by the doctor. He also has some pimples sort of thing on his face that makes him look red t face. Thankfully, the treatment given to him by the doctor has treated his face pimples to a great extent.

My small wonder has now started playing with blanket. Yes, he kicks off the blanket from his legs as if playing football. I am happy to see my kid using his legs to kick off things in a playful manner. Another naughty thing that Aastik does in his second month is that he has started moving up from his pillow. God knows how can such a small baby shift his head from the pillow?
Aastik’s Nani and I really laugh watching him lifting his waist. Mostly, he does so when he pisses and the cloth below him is wet and he wants to remove it. You see my smart little Aastik is getting naughty day by day. He has also started responding to talks this month, especially with his Nanu dear.
Aastik just loves watching fan on the roof, so Nanu switches on and off the fan to grab his attention. Not just fns, even lights re his favorite; it seems he loves all the electrical things. I just love watching my baby smile sometimes.
One thing that has given me the greatest relief this month is that Aastik has now started sleeping more in nights and less in daytime. This means now I also get to sleep somewhat comfortably t nights with my small wonder.
He shows off his power now by pushing by his hand when I come close to him for a feed. Kids are taught to do left right left with legs, but by baby does it with his neck right in the 2nd month. He turns his neck left right left continuously sometimes, as if he is searching for something.

Finally, after many days of searching a good name for my baby, I came across a very good name with a very good meaning, “Aastik”, one who believes in God! Though, his father found the name okay okay, I wished to keep this name for him and he finally agreed!
I never imagined that a small baby of just 15 – 20 days can push with hands! My prince does so; it shows he has powerful hands for his protection. But, poor little baby pushes his mumma too while feeding!
I cried thrice in this month seeing him awake at nights and keeping me awake too. If he gets ups at 1a.m at night, he will not sleep before 3a.m. It means mumma and baby will talk or play for 2 hours. He keeps me busy in these 2 hours at a stretch in nappy changing, feeding and soothing him when he cries! This 2 hours awaking goes for at least twice and sometimes thrice in the whole night!
Last but not the least thing that I observed in Aastik in the first month is that he is his own boss! Elaborately speaking, no one can make him sleep when he is awake and no one can awake him when he is sleeping, unless he wishes it himself! He sleeps as per his will and wakes up at his own will!

At last my, wait is over and I have my baby in my hands! After getting discharged on the 3rd day of my baby’s arrival, I am back at home and the first night was just horrible with the baby getting cranky almost whole night! Me and his Papa couldn’t sleep well whole night!
Next day (4th day), his father noticed symptoms of jaundice on our baby and we got worried! We took him to the child specialist and got his jaundice checked. He was found to suffer from jaundice but nothing was worth worrying, as it was normal and not at a high level. Doctor asked us to take him in indirect sunshine for few days and he will be fine!
I thought not to give him top feed but had to give him in just 4 days because he cries non-stop with hunger! Mamu got his Nan Pro One Formula Milk and the moment he drinks it, he turns Keshto Mukherjee with his eyes getting at the corners! I doubt, whether his mamu mixed some brandy in this milk that he sleeps getting dizzy the moment he gets the top feed!
Though, he remains serious most of the times, my little one looks oh so adorable when he smiles while sleeping. I never saw a new born baby looking at lights, as he does. One thing that makes me worry for him during these initial days of his life is his sneezing in this cold weather. I pray he has not got cold!
Me and his nani found one thing very strange in his 1st month that after every bottle feed he does potty. Moreover, the bottle doesn’t gets empty and he has he spoils his nappy. More than me, his nani gets worried when he does this dirty job!
Will share more about my baby's progress in 1st month in Part II...
