Sahiti’s third month

Dear Little Sahiti,

The one memory I have of your third month is you trying really hard to roll over and get mobile. You tried every possible trick you could think of (really, just turning to your left and pushing yourself as far as you can). You also started holding your neck high and added a cute little smirk to your face showing off how pleased you were with yourself.ย Your little coo-ing had progressed into a louder, cuter voice yelling in delight every time you found something interesting. By this time, you learnt the art of smiling on demand. Silly faces and funny noises were rewarded with a beautiful tooth-less grin.

This was a crucial month for me because, only in your third month I got complete responsibility of taking care of you. Ammamma and Tatayya left to India and Nanna returned to work after a long-ish break. It was just you and me for the most part of the day. You were a wonderful baby to take care of. You developed a more or less disciplined schedule. You slept longer at nights and during the day, fed every 3-4 hours. Apart from milk and sleep, you did not ask for much. You rarely yelled for a diaper change. ย Putting you to sleep was my favorite part. All I had to do was wrap you in your swaddle and give you your pacifier. That’s it. Worked like a charm every single time.

Just like me and Nanna, we realized that you too like entertaining people and attending parties. We were getting antsy from being home for two months. So, we took you out to a Christmas Party at a friend’s place and you did wonderful. In a roomful of extremely loud adults, you kept calm despite staying up past your bed time. We got a little greedy and invited a bunch of friends over. Again, you behaved like a dream. You said your hellos to everyone, hung around for a little bit and went to bed as usual to let us get some much needed adult time.

Milestones reached this month: Learning to make noises to get our attention and following a rhythmic day/night pattern.

Firsts this month: First Christmas, first party, first New year and first Sankranti.

Lots of love to you,
