The 13th month has been a month of lot of firsts for both of us.
The two of us travelled to India amidst a lot of apprehensions. N dropped us to the airport till check-in at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport which was quite helpful as it would have been difficult to manage a toddler( oh yes! He is a toddler now🙈) and the luggage. Though he was playful and quiet most of the journey, he became cranky due to sudden change in air pressure during landing at Kuala Lampur and take off as he was very sleepy and also angry that I am putting him through the flight ordeal again. Luckily he slept during landing at Bengaluru 🤗😍 . He wasn’t ready to sit in stroller and had to be put into the carrier at times.
He has been missing his dad a big time now and the same from his dad too.
I was rather sceptical that he wouldn’t go to anyone at home but he surprised me by going to everyone in ten minutes of seeing them.
He got to eat a variety of foods including veggies and am glad that am able to stick to the no-salt and no-sugar rule still most of the times.
Got him immunised with the vaccines scheduled for 12 months
