What did I hear?

“Give me!”

That’s what Aaku said when I took the lid of the box she was playing with. I cannot explain my reaction, my feelings in words!! It was so sweet like I just tasted my favorite food… really I felt it that way. I hugged her tightly and kissed her several times. I didn’t ask her to repeat, as I didn’t want to spoil my flavor. And she was so happy to see me like this. (she loves it when I hug her tightly and kiss her all over her face.)

This was the first set of words she said, that I never used for her or her sister. The school effect is showing up!!

And now some photos from the birthday celebration of my mother (last month)
