Joy's first Balloon

All these days Joy hasn't been fascinated by balloons being sold at traffic signals and other lil toys that they keep trying to shove inside the car.....all specially made to lure kids....
After Joy's birth whenever we have passed such a vendor... the husband and I would get excited and look towards Joy pointing them out to him.... hoping he would respond.... but he didn't.... he liked our faces more... he would keep looking at us and grin....
Day before yesterday.. while I was driving to the market with Joy and the maid in tow... we stopped at a signal... and there was this balloon wala... he had yellow and blue and red balloons...he came up to the car and waved them at us.... for the first time I saw Joy look excited at the balloons.. and he tried to reach out for them...
I was so thrilled that I promptly went ahead and parked the car and took Joy out to select his Balloon... he chose a bright red one ..a heart shaped one... I actually thought he would like the squiggly one... but he chose the heart shaped one... by grabbing it with both his arms...
We were so thrilled with our purchase that we drove around to my mum's place to show off our balloon.... My mum gave one look and said..." Ok!!! all the best.... the I want phase has started...."....laughed loudly at me and then went off to play with her grandson and his balloon....

Joy's red balloon
The balloon burst today while Joy was playing with it ... I think his lil nails did the damage.... when I heard the loud pop... I ran to see if Joy wasn't startled..and crying.... but no... Not my Joy... he was sitting with shreds of the balloon in his hands and a devilish grin on his face... looking around for more things to go and burst!!!

So sweet! Love the red heart-shaped balloon and the way he is clinging on to it!

Totally out of context, but it reminded me of the DCH scene - Subodh roz usse ek laal dil-shaped balloon laa kar deta hai - roz :)
