Our recent trip to Gangai Konda Cholapuram

Gangai Konda Cholapuram is near Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu. What a splendid and brilliant work by Rajendra Cholan! It is an exact replica of Brihadeeswarar Temple, Thanjavur. We had been there on a pleasant Sunday evening and had a good darshan. Kutty had a great time playing in the grassy area there. A few snaps to cherish the sweet moments...

Isn't this the latest fashion?

Yet another proof that showcases his love for sunglasses!

The Spiderman look!

He just loves this dress so much. He almost transmuted himself into Spiderman and gave us a scary look. What more do we need for a perfect click?

Shocked to see me sitting with a KFC basket? Well, I was just posing for a snap! Ruban wanted to click one like this so that he could show it to everybody and make them believe that I had my piece of pie! Hmmm...the basket in front indeed looks yummy but not irresistable as my favourite Sambar and Potato fry. What an enjoyable and memorable moment!

In Chennai

We had been to City Center recently. Adi Kutty had a great time at the Fun City there. He was very excited to see so many games and he wanted to try everything. He started off with this helicopter, tried everything else and then came back to this helicopter for a second round.

I am just three, yet cast my vote!

Am I not big enough to cast my vote?? What do you think??

Our recent trip to Velankanni

We had been to Velankanni recently. What a magnificient and beautiful church! What I couldn't stand there was the scorching heat. It was too hot and made us crave for more and more water.

Having fun at the fun center

A new fun center for the kids has been opened recently and Adi is enjoying each and every moment there. He wants us to take him to the fun center everyday!

Riding on a horseback

504986464203_0_ALB 329207464203_0_ALB Both Ruban and my dad wanted to try their skills (?!) riding sitting on a horseback at the beach. Look at my mom - on one side she was so scared to even stand beside the horse and on the other side she couldn’t control her laughter upon seeing my dad’s posture!

Ruban and me

This picture was clicked in Mahabalipuram. This snap reminds me of the good old 'gold' days! We both used to wear the same kind of summer caps, sunglasses and winter caps. Also, I make it a point that my dress and Ruban's shirt are of the same colour. Everyday, I used to wait until he chooses his shirt and then I'll choose my dress for the day! But now our lives are fully centered around our little one and we are more bothered about him than about ourselves.

My mom, Adi kutty and me!

I like this picture, though the quality is not good. All three of us were having a great time cuddling each other when Ruban clicked this.

Dancing to the tunes

This was clicked on our Annual day celebrations at Integra. At the end of all the programs, music was played and anybody who wished can go up on the stage and dance. He was just 2 years then. He couldn't resist the beat and started dancing to the tunes. I just love this picture.

Immediately after a bath

This is how he looks every morning after his bath

You click me and I will click you!!

He is fond of taking photographs especially from Ruban's mobile. This is one typical photo where we were trying to click him and he was in turn trying to click us!!

In the trial room

This photo was clicked in a trial room of a garment shop. Adi found the trial room very fascinating and entertaining with mirrors on all four sides. He refused to come out and stood there for a long time admiring himself from all angles on all sides!

While Ruban and myself were busy buying something in Justborn, Adi found himself a great place to relax and have fun!!

Just before his haircut

Kutty at the parlour with his dad...all ready for his haircut!

A disceptation that ended in an ardent hug!

Dad: Come on, listen to me.
Son: You first listen to me! I am right!

A perfect mixture

Isn't he a perfect blend of Ruban and Padma?

The stylish look

He loves wearing sunglasses. He is very good at breaking them too! Every now and then he breaks the old one and asks his dad to get a new one. We have almost got him three to four new sunglasses in the past one year. He wears a glass and a cap to school everyday in the morning. When asked why, he says he wears the glass to protect his eyes from the dust.

This is how I look when I cry

He has become very adamant these days. If we do not pay heed to any of his requests, he starts crying immediately (at times without tears as in the picture!) and makes sure that his request is fulfilled.

Am feeling sleepy!

He somehow manages to fight sleep and keeps himself awake until we both come back from office at 10.30 PM. How much ever you persuade him to sleep all your attempts will fail! Once we come back home, he plays with us for sometime and then goes to sleep at around 11.30 PM.

Mummy, I am grown up!

Am I not big enough to go to office like Daddy?

Children's day celebrations at office

This photo was clicked during the Children's day celebration in our office, in Nov 2008. There was a game for all children aged between 3 and 5. They were supposed to blow the popcorn (without touching it) from one end and reach the other end. He had just turned 3 at that time and I was sure that he would not have understood the instructions that were given. When the game started all other children beside him started to blow the popcorn forward, but our little master was just sitting in this same position doing nothing! I tried explaining the rules of the game to him and by the time he started playing the others had already reached their destination and the game was over :)

At a friend's wedding reception

This snap was taken in one of my best friend's wedding reception. Adi likes her a lot and talks a lot about her. On the stage, at first sight, he couldn't recognise her with all make-up on. He refused to believe that this is his favourite 'Vidya Aunty' and told me 'Amma, this is not Vidya Aunty' and walked down.
Later we went to the stage again to greet the couple. He found this small stool from one corner, dragged it in the middle and sat on it next to Vidya. He refused to get up from the stool and posed for all our snaps sitting on it. But even now, am not sure if he eventually recognised that it was Vidya on the stage!

Sleeping time

I simply love this snap. He just enjoys being with his father. Look at the way he has nestled his head comfortably in his father's elbow.

At school

This is his school ground. While all other children rush back home after school, our little master heads straight to the ground. He runs, walks and plays in the ground until we drag him out.

Mummy am tired. Give me a hand!

Where do I go next?

The astonishing looks

We had been to Chennai sometime back. I was busy shopping. He didn't have much to do and so he was happily posing to Ruban's clicks.

An evolving prodigy

At times, I ask him casually ‘what do you want to be when you grow up?’ Almost every time he comes up with an answer saying that he wants to grow big and ride a helicopter or a rocket. It would be interesting to see how his preferences change over a period of time. I am sure he will come back with a variety of responses according to his varying interests.

His first mottai

He was 11 months old when we took him to Velankanni for his first mottai. Though it was on the first of October, the sun was scorching hot and poor Adi got tired by the end of the day.

This was clicked just a few minutes before the mottai. Happily dozing off in dad’s shoulders.

This was clicked immediately after the mottai.

And these snaps were clicked at home.
