The chronicles of raising Anu will be incomplete if I didn't mention the most arduous task of feeding him milk everyday. Ever since he got off breastmilk, the only way that has (partially) worked is to feed him milk using a katori and chammach. Thats right, a cup and a spoon. I was never able to get him to drink from a bottle and sippy cups only worked with water. So every morning and evening we sit down with a cup of milk and distract him with any thing that fancies his interest - toys, a cup of water to make mess with, a mop or whatever. And then we try to feed him milk with a spoon. When everything fails, Kabir comes to the rescue.

 But no matter how we try, the end result is usually the same. A big mess...

....and a victorious grin by the perpetrator.

So, God help us!

The big splash

Kabir's swimming camp ended on Monday with a big splash - a drop from the 5m high floor into the deep end of the pool without the support of a float!

Its amazing how far he has come along in the past 4 weeks. He's obsessed with swimming and asks me to take him to the pool everyday even after the camp has ended. Here are links to some more videos in which he is showing off his swimming skills to nana-nani.

First day of school

Anu started going to Sishu Vihar this week. He had been begging to go with his brother for some time now (Kabir goes to SV these days since its vacation time for regular school) and was very excited when we told him he could finally start. Unfortunately the excitement didn't last beyond first day of school. Anu fell sick right after day 1 and we have discontinued SV for now.
