For the last 7 months, we've tried to take this in our stride and not get too worked up when this happens. We figured babies go through these phases, and everything will be fine when he reaches the next milestone (i.e. starts eating solids, gets through teething etc.). But this approach has left me tired and exhausted. I need a better solution to keep my sanity (and my daytime job!). For now, I'm going to call the Pediatrics' office to schedule an appointment. I'm ready to try anything and everything.

I found this video that was taken about two weeks ago by Nanaji while he was visiting us. This was the time when Kabu was trying to attempt crawling. I think this video captures beautifully how he explored various ways of moving his legs and feet before finding the right balance.

Ofcourse. It is amazing how alert and curious Kabir is. He constantly scans his surroundings and needs to check out the source of every sound and movement. I often sit on our front porch with him and his favorite pass time is to observe cars coming in and out of homes. He does not take his gaze away until the object is completely out of his sight. No matter whether he's eating, playing, sleeping or anything else, if there is a sound or change in co-ordinates of any object in his surrounding, there will be an equal and opposite reaction from him.
2. Night Watchman
But ofcourse. The later it is in the night, the more alert he is. Alas.
He is a very good singer already. My singing is not good enough for him, so he likes to sing himself to sleep.
We've seen how he's picked some of that from his father. He even has the hair-do for the right look.
He will leave no stone unturned. Literally. That's my experience from all the park visits.
He can cry one second and laugh the next. Can act like he is upset just to make you hold him!
7. Food critic
He has some talent for making faces (remember the spinach episode?). He'll certainly make one hard-to-please food critic.
This is his most recent hobby. He's fascinated by electric cords and all electric/electronic equipment. He's even had experience trying to stick his finger into an electric outlet.
9. Paper Shredder
Ok I know thats not a real profession, but its something he has a ton of experience with. His repertoire includes not just paper, but also magazines, books and paper mail.
10. Baba Ramdev's substitute
No explanation required here I think :-)

Kabir actually enjoyed his time away instead of being bothered by a new place and I got a much needed break from my routine. The highlight of the trip was the time we spent on the beach. The weather was perfect - which made all the difference. Here are some pictures of Kabir enjoying his first experience on a beach.
Then he couldn't take his eyes off the sand
This is what sand feels like

Yesterday, after Kabir got up from his afternoon nap, he knew how to crawl. It was almost "digital" in nature. He couldn't crawl more than a step or two upto yesterday morning and after his nap, out of the blue, he knew exactly what to do.
Here he goes...as if he's been doing this all along:
now all he needs to do is to work on his landing :-)

Yes, I hate to admit it, but the verdict is pretty clear. He's a clone of his father. I have been pacifying myself all along by saying that after all looks aren't important. As long as he has my heart & my brain, that's all that matters! ;-)

Kabu is starting to make attempts at crawling. Its fun to watch him carefully trying to get onto all fours and balance his weight on his knees. But his knees are not able to take his full weight yet, so he ends up falling straight on to his tummy. However, I'm pretty sure that in a few days, he'll be able to master it. I hope I'll be there with my camera when he takes his first step!
