Height of cruelty- Tejas hitting his toy butterfly with his toy doggie

Height of reward- I strike a conversation with Ojas when he wakes up in the morning. He picks up his bottle and hands it to me in reward.

Height of challenge- Ojas surpasses himself in his achievements. He holds his feeding bottle cap between his toes, the next level is the feeding bottle, followed by his pillow, his bolster & finally my pillow. The ultimate goal is to be able to hold one end between his toes & the other in his mouth.

Height of vigilance- Tejas periodically removing the Velcro of Ojas’ nappy (to check if he has soiled it?)

Height of dieting- Ojas touches the roti to his foot before putting in his mouth until he is done with it.

Height of desperation- If we give the bottle to one baby who is hungry, the other automatically wants the bottle too.

Height of competition- Who gets into my lap first when I come back from office.

Height of comparison- Ojas comparing his foot with Daddy’s. What next?

Height of rivalry- Tejas crawls and climbs over Ojas who is taking his feed and cries until he gets it. Sometimes even snatches the bottle from Ojas’ mouth.

Height of anger- you take them out of the door & then come back into the house & the reaction you get post that.

Height of table manners- I gave Tejas a piece of bread & he grabbed at my plate & wouldn’t eat his bread until I gave him a plate of his own.

Height of fitness- Ojas doing push ups when trying to crawl & doing Adho mukha shvaanaasana when trying to stand up

Height of choice- the toy they select from their toy basket would be the lid of a box or a clothes clip that would have accidentally found its way into their basket

Height of choosiness- among his toy mobile phone, a normal cell phone & a flip model cell phone, Tejas selects the flip model every time and hates it if it is not flipped open before handing it over to him

Height of dadagiri- both shout at MIL aaayyyy if she arrives late in the morning

Height of frustration- Ojas trying to scratch his bum over his diaper

Height of provocation- Tejas snatches the remote from Ojas' hands, "runs" away in his walker, returns to Ojas, dangles the remote in front of him & runs away again.

And about cooking,even i can make good lunch or dinner but cannot make Tea or coffee for guests:(

Height of peace: The picture in this blog :)

Sounds like OJ is going for the olympics with his remarkable feats!Funniest was bum scratching over diaper!

on a different note: where did you get those diapers? I was looking for something similar in Chennai and Naidu Hall told me the only kind they had was not machine friendly. So share your secret :)

Hip Grandma said...

Dizzy heights weren't they??I'll take up the tag soon.

The Kid said...

"Height of frustration- Ojas trying to scratch his bum over his diaper"

oh man, that is going to be a mess. height of frustation for you I guess!

Keshi said...

so darn cute!!!!!


Itchingtowrite said...

rebel, nee, sush, keshi- thanks
alapana- thanks - keep coming. & all the best on your plans
hip g mom- thanks for agreeing to do the tag
Kid- yes, i have to remove his diaper & direct his hands to the spot so that he can scratch in peace
@- got these from naidu hall & u r right, they r not machine friendly. u have many kinds- 1 is all plastic- this doesn't get wet easily & can be reused after wiping off. 1 is plastic outside - (the pink color one in the snap) & cloth + plastic inside- gets wet easily on the inside. but is very soft & i got the right size. for the all plastic one, i did not get the right size & the velcro was too short & material was of poor quality. 1 is cloth outside, plastic inside- the other one which ojas is wearing.

Twisted DNA said...

LOL. That is a very sweet post! I will try to do the tag, although I doubt if I can write cute stuff :)

Rohini said...

Ha! Talk about table manners - Ayaan's are going to the dogs. He has started throwing food on the floor and aimed at me as well!

Itchingtowrite said...

tdna- i am sure it will be cute- all kids are
rohini- i am preparing myself for all that. yesterday they had a fight for the feeding bottle & ojas go angry & flung the bottle down so that nobody gets it.

The Visitor said...

LoL - Great post. But I'll cry off doing this tag ITW. :)

mommyof2 said...

Thanks, I will take up the tag but few days later;-)just a bit busy today & have to go on a field trip tomorrow so I guess by Monday:-)

And like TD said I don't think I will be able to write as good as you did. You did a wonderful job & I really enjoyed reading it and all your other posts as well:-)

Usha said...
