She is very very choosy about her food (she takes after her dad). I have to run behind her to feed her rice and dal (she thinks irs boring). Sometimes, even if she is hungry, she will refuse to eat run-of-the-mill stuff. So far she prefers half fried egg over bread-butter or Upma, Which is exactly what her Dad likes.

She is very specific about fruits too. So far I have been successful only with apples, oranges, bananas (sometimes), pomegranate and grapes (they need to be seedless and juicy). I tried my best to feed her custard apple, guava, pineapple, berries, jackfruit and some other exotic fruits, which I just love to have (but Aaditya stays away from these). She didn't appreciate any of them. I think I should just stick to what Aaditya likes and get only those things for her.


Today I found out that, she loves dining out. Give her some nice fish and prawns and she is all happy. We can start eating out now.... Yoohooo!

We have got a temple next to our apartment complex and there is this big tamarind tree nearby. This has invited a couple of monkey families (No, I mean REAL monkey families). Sometimes when the temple is not enough crowded (monkeys may not be getting anything to eat due to that), they decide to explore the neighborhood. It literally translates to the monkey attack. How nice!

This place has served as a constant source of entertainment to Pari. Our balconies open to this huge empty (and unattended) plot, which is full of wild trees, thick shrubs and knee-high grass. If it were not for the traffic noise of outer ring road, we would have almost felt like staying in the middle of the jungle. This jungle offers us its own wealth(?) of species. I have witnessed more number of big dark flies, colorful moths, big red bees, big red ants with wings (I don't know what they are called), cute green grasshoppers, fireflies and butterflies (ok, they look cute) in just six-seven months than my entire lifetime. Pari loves all sorts of insects. She is so much fond of moths and butterflies.

And today she got to see monkeys... not just one or two but about five-six. They were roaming freely in the balconies, jumping around the windows and we were watching them from inside behind the grills (with windows tightly shut). It gave me a weird feeling. As if the place belonged to monkeys and we were mere prisoners.

It was amusing to see so many monkeys in open and monkeying around. Pari just loved it. Too bad, we are soon going to shift to a new place, which doesn't has such jungle around.

We will miss you monkeys!

Pari is puking her guts out

Don't know what was it, but it looks like some food problem. May be it was the chicken which we had for lunch. She was uncomfortable since evening and became very clingy.

At around 8 o'clock she vomited the first time. I tried to feed her some boiled and sauteed potato. She puked all of it all over me. Then I decided to only feed her milk. But it was no good. She did puke all of it. So until 11 she had vomited about three times already.

After talking to Doc, we gave her medicine. Thankfully, she was active and playful all this time. In fact, I was trying hard to rock her to sleep. I hope she will feel better in the morning.

We went to Lalbagh today. She loves grass. Not to mention, she plucked most of the grass of the lawn. Thankfully, guards didn't spot us.

She must have walked for more than an hour (with enumerable falls as seen here).

Now the interesting thing is, she refuses to walk on the road.

She loves her Dad

Pari adores her Dad. Whenever she is given something to eat, she searches for him first. Only after it is fed to him (sometimes shoved into his mouth), she eats it.

Do you think she tests the food on him first?

Walkity walk

Yoohoo! it's going to be so much fun now.

I am convinced that she understands me completely. Every night I need to make a case about how drinking (bottled) milk is good for her and how it will help her sleep quickly.

Not to mention, I need to tell her that if she finishes her milk, I would feed her.

... this happens every single day (rather night).
