(17th March-16th April)
Now, Aarush started to twitch, smile, frown and stretch a lot after waking from sleep. Amazingly ( I never knew this) and apparently babies between three to four months are at the stage where they get very playful and drinking milk is not a priority anymore, I believe. They prefer to talk and coo to adults, and being very observant at this stage and they are attracted to moving objects, colours and everything new around them. So was our little one.
It was not even month stay at Durg, on april 8th Santanu came to meet Aarush for 3-4 days. Before leaving from Mumbai Santanu warned me not to pamper him much by taking him in arms all time but later I found… on hearing one shrill cry he use to run to him.
Aarush now started cooing in response to gentle, soothing words of his didu. Keeps his fist in his mouth most of the time and drools sometimes. Enjoy holding his toys for a short period of time. Turns head towards sounds. Rattles, bright pictures use to attract him. His Mesho (maternal uncle) came to meet him unexpectedly. Now he started liking to be held upright.
By now he can lift up his head and hold it up quite steadily for quite a while. He smiles when we tickle or touch his cheeks, and his cooing just melts our hearts away! He captures the hearts of every people who come to meet him. Now lots of visitors come to meet him.
Sometimes he use to blow bubbles a lot. Nanu and didu were very happy with his stay at their place. Every morning nanu use to spend quality time with him. Every hour or so his nanu use to come to see and talk to him. My dad is not at all trained with baby care but then also use to carry him with nervous hands and Aarush never use to do any mischief with him. Thrice he put his grandson to sleep when I and my mom were busy in work. So, were the days at our end.
