"Avi not tired"
"Mommy sun out, moon down" (Mind you it is like ten or eleven at this point.)
No Avi, the sun is down and moon is out.
No seriously, take my word for it.
The inevitable crying and tantrum
"One book? Two? Three? Otay, otay...Five books?"
(He may need a little help on his haggling techniques. Or we do, since we usually give in...oops.)
"Oh no! Pee-pee coming!"
(This one is especially effective since he knows that we will never turn this one down)
"Bappi, tak to Avi. Stories pease?"
"Rub back. Adack. Leg!"
(Still have no clue what word adack is supposed to be.)
More crying and carrying on. Slowly realizes the inevitable is coming...
Aaaaaand he's out. Phew.
Luckily there is little else cuter than a baby sleeping. And, because no post is really complete without photos prepare yourself for the montage of Avinash sleeping over the years. (Can you imagine what his wedding slideshow is going to be like??) Enjoy!
No, we didn't ever dress him in pink. Just a picture of our good sleeper Nandini.
Tired out after a long night of dancing and eating cake.
Okay, this is really Nuj mama sleeping.
Conked out amid all the hubbub and people at Garba night.
Dozing, in the little doggy house on his first Halloween.
