Punch at 1.5 years

Punch is now 18 mths i.e 1.5 years old. Like most mothers, suddenly I feel where did these 18 months fly away? But every day is a new experience and Punch entertains us with her daily dose of masti. I am listing some random things about her..


  • She is very observant and sees and hears what people around her do and tries to imitate the same..

  • When we speak on the phone and she is around, she tries to repeat the words.. later she picks the landline and starts talking by saying " aunty, mamam, bye"

  • Her aunty and uncles speak to her on the phone and she obliges only if in mood, else she will scream at the top of her voice. She offers to put nappy rash cream for them by applying it on the phone and gives a kiss to them by kissing the phone

  • Recently, the Mr sprained his back and I sprayed the painkiller on his back, Punch immediately took the spray and tried to spray it on him

  • She generally offers what she eats to others including some random person appearing on TV and the Mickey Mouse picture on her cycle

  • She uses one word to communicate and we are supposed to make sentences from it

  • The moment she hears the word "Temple" she says aana meaning elephant..We make her sit on the stone elephants in the temple and she loves it

  • If we ask her where do you want to go, she replies Kah and Bikee meaning Car and Bike..many times she has cried so much that her dad is forced to take her on a ride on the Bike..then she asks me also to join

  • Of late, I notice that when I am talking to someone, she screams and wants us to talk to her

  • She feels that whenever we go out it is always to meet her grandpa and great grandma(appu)

  • A peculiar thing with her..she loves to see her birthday pictures and video again and again many times a day

  • She always wants me and Mickey Mouse to wear grandma's specs

  • She has called out to an Auto and couple of autos have stopped to her call when we are walking

  • She has to be fooled and taken to a room when someone is going out, else she creates a big fuss

  • She is a terror whilst in the car and keeps jumping around the front and back and uses her legs to shut the small drawer

  • She points out to the walking stick and says " Ammu" (great grandpa)..and imitates him by using the umbrella/rolling pin as a walking stick

  • She loves to use the broom and mop..our maid does not wish to risk her life and promptly hands over the mop and broom at the first order from Punch
  • When she sees anyone crying on TV, she says Aunty uuu uuu and wants us to view something else

Now a small quiz for my errr Punch's friends

She says something which goes like

1. tintint aawww upppp

Punch's mimicry must be looking so cute. I can relate so many of these things to Ash - the attention seeking, looking at pictures and videos, using broom and mop etc. Kids this age do a lot of similar things and yet they do so many things that are unique to them. Happy 18 months Punch!

I give up on the word :)
