The one with... going random.

Hi ! I so want to update my blog but sayang sekali, masa selalu tidak mengizinkan.. Akan tatapi, memandangkan waktu lunch hampir tiba dan today's Friday which means mojo level is going down the drain, maka today is an exception sekarang juga saya updatekan.. *cewah!*

Anyway I'm pretty much getting the hang of it already -- life with the husband, baby and workload in it, I mean. And this week, I've started to include cooking back into the routine. But of course not everyday (yet) lah. Kerol and I have had enough with outside food already *bleurghhh*. A sardine-omelette-fried vege meal -- though very basic and simple -- can be very satisfying simply because it's home-cooked.. *nice!*

Butttttt, macam agak susah jugak ye nak make cooking become part of the daily life. Because it all depends on the baby. Kalau balik kerja tu dia macam meragam nak attention.. then nak menyusu and all.. Dengan penat nye lagi.. By the time nak start masak, dah lambat sangat pulak.. Nanti nak kena cuci pinggan2 and whatnot lepas masak + makan... Hmmm.. I mean, I'm not complaining here.. Seriously I want to be a good wife to hubby who cooks dinner for him, and at the same time be a good mother to Khayr who attends to his needs regardless. Because during weekdays, I only get to spend time with him only upon returning back home from office. tsk.

So out of curiousity I'm just wondering how the other working mothers deal with this ya? Korang sempat masak tak waktu balik kerja? Who knows, you can motivate me that I can do this too. huhu. Or otherwise, you can let me know that what I feel is actually normal.

Anyway.

Khayr is 3 months old already, going 4 soon. And my marriage is reaching it's 1 year milestone in 9 days time. Woo hoo! Talking about how fast time flies huh?

Khayr has shown so much progress since he was born, in fact there are just too many for me to even list them out one by one here. But among the obvious ones, he's learning to roll over his body now. So funny to see him putting his best effort with the "urghhhh" "arghhhh" sounds.. hehehe. Go baby go!

He also likes to 'yell' with a different kind of tones, testing his vocal I think. Baru sedar and rasa best ada suara agaknye.. Hehe.. Seronok sangat 'menyembang' dengan baby, sampai kadang2 boleh bring tears of joy to me sebab terlalu terharu.. :P I have recorded a video of him 'membebel2' in his own very cute way, but I don't know how to post it up here.. Hmmm.

And another thing, he has started to show interest on watching TV, especially cartoons and advertisements. In the middle of struggling to roll over his body or crying to ask for attention, he can immediately stop and remained quiet for some time with his eyes fixed on the screen.. :)

So wanting to make full use of my *ahem* new phone, I downloaded all those free baby-related applications -- flash cards, songs, and such. And Khayr seems to love it, especially the ABC song, twinkle2 lil star song, and flash cards on animals with sound..

- 1 page specially dedicated just for those applications :) -

- baby Khayr getting leka with the ABC song, giving ample time for his mama and abah to get ready to go to work in the morning ;) -

His sleeping pattern has become more routine already, especially at night. But he will still wake up 3 / 4 hourly for his feeding.

Oh and it got me worried initially when I found out that once entering his 3rd month of life, Khayr has no longer poopoo everyday.. not even once in 2-3 days. But once / twice in 5-6 days! Sekali datang, mak aiii.. explosive I tell you.. Hehe.. Anyway I learnt that for a fully bf baby, that's normal. As long as the baby is happy, gaining weight, and not cranky, then there's nothing to be worried. *phew* :)

Eh tiba2 terbuat list pulak about his progress.. Huhu.. (actually a mother can just go on and on and on when it comes to the baby kan? :P)

Alritey, I better stop now. Want to go for lunch, then focus on work with the hope time will pass by so quick it's the end of office hour already!

Happy friday people and enjoy your weekend! Till later~*

The one with.. the tag i've been meaning to respond to :)

This is just to kill the time while waiting to go out for lunch. I saw Farah did this tag sometime last year and now finally I'm fit to do the same :)

So here goes.

1.WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED?
Nope. Not at all… :P

2.WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME?
Like, what kind of question is this? Anyway to answer the question -- Yes of course. Just happily married and got back from honeymoon.. :)

3.WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION?
I cried at the first instance I saw the two lines. Huhu. Give me a break please, I wasn’t mentally and physically prepared.. So to me the discovery came as a total shock. Kerol rushed to me immediately after he heard me calling his name from the bathroom and gave me this comforting hug that says “it’s ok.. don’t be scared.. we can do this dear..”. and that somehow made my tears of fear changed to tears of joy… =)

4.HOW OLD WERE YOU?
26

5.HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT?
My period was WAY late than usual, and I did the pee-on-the-stick test for fun only to find out that yup, the period was late not for no reason.. huhu.

Of course my husband.

7.DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?
Yes.

10.HOW MUCH DID YOUR CHILD WEIGH?
2.75kg, wayyyy lighter than what the gynae predicted. If only I knew, I would have ignored her advice to steer clear from donuts and cupcakes and whatnot.. :P (ye lah tuuuuu.. 2.75kg pun macam nak mati jer push push.. kalau berat lagi tak tau ler… hehehe).

11.DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?
A very minor one. And it happened only during the 1st trimester.

12.WHAT DID YOU CRAVE FOR?
Nothing in particular, I basically used the excuses like “hey I’m pregnant, I need to eat for two” and “it’s not me, it’s the baby” to indulge in food without worrying about gaining weight.. :) Eh tapi ada satu hari tuh tiba2 tengah malam I wanted ice lemon tea so bad I felt like crying.. Craving kah itu?

13.WHO / WHAT IRRITATED YOU THE MOST?
Those who does not understand how it feels like to be pregnant.. How one’s experience can be different from another.. You know, the tendency of feeling tired easily, the need to rest more, the important of being stress-free, etc.

A cute baby boi!

Nope.. :)

A whopping 19kg! hehe.


17.DID YOU HAVE A BABY SHOWER?
Na’ah.

18.WAS IT A SURPRISE OR DID YOU KNOW?
Not applicable.

19.DID YOU HAVE ANY COMPLICATIONS DURING YOUR PREGNANCY?

24.WAS IT NATURAL OR C-SECTION?
Natural, alhamdulillah.

25.DID YOU TAKE MEDICINE TO EASE THE PAIN?
At the very last minute, yes, I decided to take epidural.. :(

26.WHAT DID YOU NAME HIM / HER?
Kh@yr Elymr@n Bin Khairul Fadzly. Can call Khayr.. Can call Imran.. Both carries good meanings.. Hope my baby will live up to his name..

27.HOW OLD IS YOUR FIRST BORN TODAY?
3 months and 6 days old...
Who now knows that we are talking to him..

The one with... my first mother's day celebration, as a mother myself :)

Here's how I celebrated mother's day in 2008 and 2009. And 2010 marks the first celebration with me being a mother myself :) So despite my busy-ness, the occassion deserves an entry on its own...

I must say that now I'm a mother, finally I know for real why the mother's loves can be so strong.. For I feel it myself now.. To Mama, happy mother's day.. I love you so much more that words I could ever say, more than actions I could ever display.. Sangat terharu with all the things you've done for me, especially during my confinement period the other day.. Huhu.. True enough, you've never stopped showering me with your love and care... even that I am married now.. *iSk* I love you mama, with all my life.

So, anyways.

This time around the dinner gets merrier with 3 mothers being celebrated altogether (myself included ;P).. Both my family + Kerol's went to San Fracisco Pizza in Wangsa Maju on Saturday night and had a really good time.. What's more with the little one, which I reckon the best present I could ever give to Mama...and Ibu.. hehe..

Anyway here goes the pics.

- The old timers -

- The newbie ;) -

- The present for everyone :) -

- The proud parents -

- The keenness to learn ;) -
