This video of thangi-paapa was made by Abhinav, who has a lot of interest in photography and off late in videography as well 🙂 Since his infancy, I’ve never hesitated too much in allowing him to handle any hi-tech equipment. On his part, he’s well reciprocated my trust and hasn’t damaged anything. Only once he dropped my mobile so far, and that ended up fixing a key that hadn’t been working earlier!! :mrgreen: He’s quite dextrous in picking up the usage of any new device now. Sometimes people are so afraid to let children handle anything, so he’s one bit of evidence that its not such a bad idea after all! 😉

She’s sleeping most of the time. In the first week, we were worried about whether it was a bit too much. She would just open her eyes enough to feed a little bit, and then doze off even before completing the feed. Sometimes the milk would run out of her nose and mouth because she’d fall asleep before even swallowing properly! We were a bit worried at first, and later found on the net that its a normal thing after all with many babies. The lactation classes in the maternity hospital proved to be quite helpful actually. One of the techniques is to wake up the baby* and ensure she feeds completely before dozing off, since otherwise it could affect her eating habits and health.
* by gently tapping on the soles of her feet 🙂

He proved to be a very affectionate, caring, sensitive and trusting brother, a lot more than we’d anticipated.

Nowadays son’s started more complex drawings – here he drew a heart (which I’d taught as an m + a V) then he added petals to it.

[Radhiakka: why is the heart not smiling big??]
