Little Updates

We have reached a 8th year anniversary a couple of weeks ago and no, no celebration and no gifts exchange among us. Ala, not like we really celebrate it every year pun..
This year after wishing each other, we had a chat. Every year, we talk about our plan and dreams and achievement as a parent, how the kids go along and how we wanted them to be. Kids are growing up and makin mencabar. I prefer them to be babies sebab senang nak menjaganya. Parenting ni memang susah kan? there is no right or correct method t and selalunye the best parenting = the best result. Regardless apa cara pun.
Anyway, hubs initiated a routine of solat and mengaji at home for Sarah. So far so good, except there are times when dia penat so kita tolerate lah baca iqra one page instead of two pages. For Sophia pulak, she is still in a playful phase. Bila pakai telekung and during the whole solat, sepuluh kali buka pakai telekung. Dia ni meticulous sikit. Tak boleh senget. And if baju basah kena air terus protes nak tukar baju lain. Memang buat naik darah. So it really depend on her, kalau nak solat ok sila follow. But if dia refuse we are okay. Takpe, she is just 4 and kami tak nak paksa.
Ali. Well, well. The only boy at home jadi we are so over him, asyik nak cuddle je and he has always being clingy with me as I am his source of energy. But I love it! I love the way he is being so attached, so wanting me and making me feels very important.
Hmm. Tahun ni we all tak pergi anywhere lagi. No vacation yet. thought of going to Langkawi again but Ali is so small for a speed boat ride and snorkeling. Sarah dah pester us for beaches but we haven't plan any yet. Ok gotta do some planning.
Nanti cerita lagi.

Beginning of 2014

January 2014! Pia has started school, same school with Sarah. But this little fella has so much drama I tell you. Hubs is being very very patience in attending all her antics. But overall she is okay. Trying to cope with all new things.
Me on the other hand, has so much in mind. Planning for the house, vacation and even budget. So much on my plate. Hoping for a good year ahead. Insyaallah.

My Breastfeeding Story

Ali is turning 6 months in 10 days. As cliche as it may sound tapi, cepat gile okay. and with that, I still breastfeed him until today. Though tak exclusively because he takes around 10% of FM masa kat babysitter house. I am okay with that as long as his major food source are coming from my boobies. In fact, I feel proud sebab the two elder tak BF this long.
I do not want to tell what happened with the previous two but lessons I learnt regarding breastfeeding with previous child and pregnencies were, always do your research, educate your spouse and family and yang paling terutama is doa pada Allah. You can gain as much info and educate yourself but if Allah tak grant a rezeki for you to BF then memang takde rezeki kita.
Bila I tau I was pregnant, I started berdoa supaya diberikan rezeki untuk succesfully BF my third child and Alhamdulillah, diberi rezeki dariNya.
I experienced severe ups and downs but thank goodness for friends and colleagues around me yg tak putus-putus bagi semangat dan tips.
Dan bersyukur sangat because hubs is supporting me all the way. Sebenarnya, rasa terharu bila dia beritau yang dia pun berdoa masa baby dalam perut. I jokingly said to him yang sebab nanti awak jimat duit susu kan.. hihi. But, seriously memang kena give him credits sebab all this while he took charge of cleaning and sterilizing the pumping tools and bottles everyday. ( I hate the cleaning job, I think it is tedious) Dia yang prepare the EBM to be sent to babysitter, making sure my nursing cream and nursing pads are sufficient and every other breastfeeding related thingy except for giving a boobies, he takes charge.
Breastfeeding also change our way of life particularly myself. I see myself lebih tenang, and bonding with Ali and hubs is becoming even more helpful.
Whatever the reason is, I love breastfeeding. Looking forward for one and a half year journey...

Some Story To Tell After Long Hiatus


Wow, after so long kan? I feel like nak continue menulis lagi, nak cerita yang rileks dan santai je. Cuba okay?

I am now mom of 3, all under 5 years old. How do I feel? Honestly ya, sangat penat. Lucky hubs is very helpful as he always is.

Alhamdulillah, the third one is a boy. We name him Muhammad Ali for that obvious reason, the meaning is good. You google yourself. I don't get it why some people questioned and some even laughed at us bila tahu nama baby is Ali. Like, hello didn't you already supposed to know why?

The elder two pulak always nak gaduh. They can be bestfriends and sometimes the worst enemy to each other. Kalau bergaduh memang suara I macam petir. Tak boleh tahan beb especially kalau Pia nak menangis tak tentu pasal. Pasal spender pun boleh gaduh. Like perlu ke nak nangis sebab spender tak same pattern? But bila fikir balik, yes IT IS important for them, itu memang isu besar WTH!

When you have many kids, banyak benda yang kita boleh belajar tau? Kalau dulu masa anak sorang, I always rasa I lah yang paling sibuk di dunia. Kalau nak keluar tu bersiap 2 jam awal sebab i always adhere to the time so takut nanti ada je benda nak jadi. Tapi sekarang anak tiga rasa dah boleh encounter semua tu. Tapi berpeluh jugak lah kan.

Well hari ni 11 Oct actually birthday darling hubs yang ke 31. My plan sebenarnya nak dining out malam ni anak beranak kat luar. Tapi all 3 kids are unwell and hubs dah remind tak mahu keluar. So balik kerja nanti tapau KFC je lah, and beli kek kat Secret Recipe. Maybe or tengok lah macam mana nanti.

Ok lah. Till here. Nanti sambung lagi.

Thank You.

Thank you Allah for the opportunity. For lending me a husband, for giving me a chance to raise my own children, and for giving me another rezeki...
