Counting days for our upcoming trip. :) :)
Love u both to the moon and back.
It’s been so long since my last post here. I’ve been attempting to write on several occasions…but life has been super duper hectic. Since January, both my babies have been unwell due to virus infections.
First, aimi had the measles and afterwards in February, they were both infected with rotavirus and had to be warded due to dehydration. We stayed in a small hospital room for 3 nights and a couple of weeks later, discovered airaa had the chickenpox and then aimi had it too (a total of 3 weeks nursing chickenpox). Masyaallah, I’ve been in and out of the office sampai dah segan with my boss, even though he is super nice and so understanding. But, deep down I kept feeling… guilty. I think all working moms out there are familiar with this feeling…when there’s a ton of work at the office but you have a sick child to look after who is your main priority…ah. I have been so disconnected with the outside world too, haven’t been active on social media, thank god whatsapp was invented so I was still kept in the loop among my close circle of friends.
Now that april is coming to an end…everything is slowly falling into place. Alhamdulillah. I’m slowly coping with my work and slowly accepting certain things in life thrown my way with perasaan redha... -_-“
My girls are growing up so fast and I sometimes have a hard time trying to keep up with their milestones but despite everything that has happened, I still feel truly special and blessed to have them. ♥♥♥
2013 according to our phone
For me 2013 has been a year of change. A year of learning, and a year of improvements.
From the wonderful moment of giving birth to another beautiful girl and experiencing motherhood again for the second time to watching my eldest learn and grow in front of me. She never stops surprising me with her endless curiosity each and every day.
This has also been a year of travels, and finally changing workplace, also a year of putting my baking skills to test (ack!), and to sneak in a little time making plans for next year.
Finally, this has definitely been a year where I learn a lot about give and take and what it means to love unconditionally.
So here’s to a wonderful 2014. Looking forward to see what’s in store.
little girl’s weekend
One of airaa’s favorite bedtime story is the rabbit and tortoise’s race tale. Her favorite part is when I tell her how the rabbit runs very fast and the tortoise runs oh so slowly… (complete with hand gestures). But truthfully, she has no idea how a tortoise looks like (have yet to find books on that).
So anyway, before this I’ve read about Farm in the City which is a small petting zoo perfect for little kids and also happens to be located quite close to our house. So we decided to bring her there and maybe introduce her to a real life tortoise! :)
It has been raining quite a lot in putrajaya lately, but on that fine Sunday morning, the sun seems to shine brighter than ever so I packed some extra snacks and water and got us ready for our little girl’s small adventure!
Wonderful place for the little people.
Airaa finally meeting mr. tortoise for the first time. We were allowed to hold and feed most of the animals here so it’s a wonderful fun learning experience for my little airaa.
She’s encouraging the big fella to move faster.
Getting up close and personal with a baby chicken.
She definitely took her own sweet time there…
Playing with the parrot. But she’s a little scared to hold the bird..
Feeding the rabbit.
Watching mr. otter feed.
and even this little person seems to enjoy herself too.
I’m really happy my girls had a great time there. it was pretty hot that day but there were plenty of shades there. you guys should definitely check the place out as well.
our two little angels.
can’t wait for daddy to come home <3
airaa is down with measles. we found out over the weekend and i guess this week it means i’ll be taking turns with ammar to take care of her at home. meanwhile, little aimi has also caught the ever dreaded selsema+batuk package from airaa. *sigh*
for now, i still have my hubby to help around but starting next week until the first week of october, ammar will be in penang for a course. which means i’m left to take care of my babies for three whole weeks all by my lonesome. ack!
mama will come for a week maybe to help me and i feel so bad having to ask mama to help out. i don’t know. in times like these, i pray for strength and patience. i know i should stop worrying and adopt my husband’s calm take on everything. it’ll be ok in the end, insha allah.
