And he walked...and I missed it... :(

He walked today... on 13th February 2010, the saturday, at the age of 1 year 2 months and 26 days, our son, Krishna walked on his own...

A day to be remembered forever, and with happiness...

However, being very selfish and lonely, I have to say, it happened when I was not there. And besides having almost all the gadgetory required to capture such moments, we missed to capture it. We couldnt take any photographs, no video, nothing. Basically nothing to remember that moment by.

But sad as that might sound on my missing it, its great news that he did walk. And, in front of that news, nothing else matters... He walked.. he walked.. he is gonna walk ..........

He's gone away ....

for the first time since he was born, my son and I would be separated by a 3 week period. It sounds tiny, but its been two days only, and I am already missing him... :(

He has already started saying "pa pa" and "ma ma" and it feels great. She tries to get him to utter those words on phone, but hardly succeeds.

I wonder how easy it is for others to cope with such separations ?

The Doctor's Verdict....

When we visited a doc for the situation, it actually did turn out to be pretty normal. What he said was more like this, "Its pretty normal for a baby of this age. In the weather of Bangalore, the young body is not able to cope up with the changing temperature." I cant really tell you why, but that statement did make lot of sense.

The weather of the city is PERFECT to live in. Its hardly more than 26-27 and its hardly lower than 20. So, that makes a perfect range, but then what ? Well, the temperature changes so many times during the day, that its wierd. You really have to be ready for both extremes from the range.

And with a baby, its harder. You cant always control his actions, what he is doing and what not. When he's playing in water, when he has thrown his socks away and things /temperature and the baby gets cold. The cold eventually turns into fever anyway.


Another thing that came out with doctor's visit was the fact that we were giving him the wrong dosage of the right medicine. For his age and body weight he should have been given 5ml of the syrup, whereas we were giving him only 2.5ml. Once we fixed the dosage, the fever was gone right away. It was such a relief to see him do the things again...

learning curve.. u see.. being a parent is such a huge learning curve.... :)
