Puttachi turns five today. A big little girl by all accounts!

She jokes that now that she's no longer four, she will have to call that space between her eyebrows and her hairline "fivehead." :)

I cannot remember not having her around. For example, the other day I was remembering the time I rock-climbed at Darjeeling when I was 21, and the thought flitted past me, "where had I left Puttachi?". Like I said, can't remember life without her!

Happy birthday, my sweet Puttachi, and stay happy!

happy birthday, avani!
you'll get wishes today from so many
when your grandparents come
it'll be as sweet as honey
when elders talk to you
like a child, it sounds funny
may this day and everyday
be bright and sunny

Happy Birthday Puttachi! Its hard to imagine you are 5 as we still refer to you as Puttachi baby.
Shruthi...I have been smiling ear to ear imagining the Darjeeling trip with these kiddos around.

Thank you all for your wishes!

Madhu, LOL! That opens up a new train of thought and I can't stop laughing either :)

So very cute. Still remember those days when we had series of kids born on that year. So next turn is Karna, Abhinav and Siddhanth in that order.

So where is the letter to puttachi on the 5th birthday?

Shruthi said...

Thank you, Veena! No letter this time :)
