As soon as Aastik turned 5 months old, he has started showing his eagerness to sit as well as crawl. He cries often when I don’t make him sit with my support and loves sitting and observing the world around him in his little room.
My cute little son wants to crawl; perhaps this is the reason that he becomes a horse these days in an attempt to crawl. However, the result is so funny that he falls on his left side or right side and smiles. We all are just guessing whether he will learn to sit first or to crawl first. I bet that he will do both together. Touch wood!
Aastik loves modeling for photos that I click. In a sense, he is similar to his parents, who love to get clicked too! In the sixth month, he has also started jumping towards me from anyone’s lap, so that I hold him in my arms and I just love that he loves me so much!
As per his doctor’s advice, I have started feeding Aastik with semi solids in the form of glucose biscuit shake, khichdi water, mashed dal, suji kheer and custard. He must be thinking that whatever, Mumma gets in hand she tries on me these days. His first reaction while trying everything for the first time is that he seals his mouth. But, I don’t give up and give my best attempt to feed him with things that he can eat easily in order to develop his taste.
During pregnancy, my mango baby made me gorge upon so many mangoes, so I also make sure to give him a taste of mango pulp when he is in my hands now! He also loved it with some lichi juice. I intend to make him eat everything as he grows up, be it tinda, tori, karela and so on, whatever, his dad don’t like too!
