The Bhablet Who Walks
He's been able to step out on his own for over a month now, but was not interested in it. This afternoon I noticed him trying out steps on our bed but he stopped as soon as he saw me looking. Tonight we went to a mela (fair) near Giga's house. The Bhablet had been invited to dinner so we had gone to pick him up. Cousin J, V, The Bhablet and I wandered around the closing stalls and bought ourselves some snacks and a couple of toys.
After a chilly ride on a rickshaw, we finally got home at well past ten. V was busy writing out cheques and I was reading one of the newspapers when I saw The Bhablet had decided to walk. Up and down our living room floor. Over and over again. Shy and proud of his new skill.
If you've been there you'll know how it felt.
