Lakshman is our very sunny boy. He was born on Groundhog's Day and sure enough the day broke sunny and bright. The little critter saw his shadow and now we have six more weeks of winter.
Lakshman and I went to my parent's new house site and experienced that winter first hand. It was heaven for mommy because he was bundled up under layers of coats and blankets and snuggled up on my lap the whole time. Love that on his birthday he could still be my baby.
He has been beyond excited about his birthday too. I wanted his day to be so magical and it was. He had a donut cake for breakfast. The type of cake I knew he would eat. We had a few school friends over for lunch. He was squealing with excitement over and over, "it's my pawty!" Then ran around playing with his friends. Except of course he didn't consider the donuts as a real cake he had a great day.
This little guy has been through a lot last year. It's funny because he will talk about wanting to go back to Dallas sometimes to see his friends there. I'm happy the hospital was a positive experience for him.
He loves animals. He transforms into a different animal every day. And, if he doesn't want us calling him bear or bunny or jaguar anymore, he remembers to deactivate.
He is loud and a fast. He loves his friends. He does his super run with them on the playground. He is learning to relate and talk to them, when at the beginning of the year all he could talk about was pokemon. Which nobody else understood. I think speaking like Pikachu was a kind of defense mechanism. He loves getting lunch after school with his buddies. They eat fries and play in the sand pit at P. Terry's.
He would gummies at every meal if we let him. But he also likes noodles, pizza, rice, tofu, green beans, cucumbers, cruncy carrots, fried eggs, waffles and cashews. He is making so much progress.
He loves his brother and sister so much. He loves battling with Avinash, who he has to drag away from the tv up to the playroom with him. He hangs on her every word.
He is speaking so clearly now. And he has a lot to say. And is not easily swayed from his opinions on matters. It was very cloudy and rainy here for a while so a lot of birds were hanging out on the lamp posts. I pointed out a few hawks to him. He very proudly told Ryan, I see that Falcon. That Falcon named Eagle. And couldn't be told otherwise.
He still loves going for donuts and haircuts with his Nana. He has been pointing out to me how his last haircut wasn't good because his hair is too long and too curly. So, now he needs a new haircut and a new lollipop. He took the lollipop off of every Valentine card before reluctantly and sheepishly handing them over. He has also figured out that he should try to get two lollipops instead of one whenever the chance arises. He even got a nice lady to buy him one at Hobby Lobby the other day. HA!
He loves Disney and talks about the rides a lot. He uses the full name Tokyo Disneyworld and Disneyland, very emphatically. Not sure how he's going to feel about visiting the parks in America. Lakshman opened his own fortune cookie the other day and started reading it right out. "You gonna go on a Pooh ride, hunny hunt. You gonna go on a Di-Diego ride!!"
Happy Birthday baby boy! You are so loved!
