Scout update

The Scout is about 6.5 months old. He can role from one end of the room to the other. He can say many consonant sounds -- "thatha", "papa", "mama", "kaka" etc. His favorite is "thatha", although he has not made any associations with any of those sounds.  He looks up at the flowers on the side-stand when his ajji asks him "hoov yelli?". He blows raspberries and likes doing it especially when he drinks water, ending up lightly showering the person feeding him. He is delighted when GIJoe or I dance with him in our arms. He especially likes it and giggles away when I do my own random head-banging to any kind of music. Every weekend his other ajji, taatha video chat with us to see his antics. But then he becomes the "good boy" and refuses to indulge them with any kind of "entertainment". He only wants to bang the keys on the keyboard and lick the screen. Oh, yeah his main aim in life is still to grab and shove everything that walks or doesn't into his mouth.  Hand-to-mouth existence this!

  1. If amma is around, he starts whining (kind of) till she picks him up. If amma is not in visible range, he is okay being held by others :)
