Baru Dapat Kaki

This past one week is interesting coz after bertatih and cruising and jalan-10-tapak-pastu-berpaut for so long, Afif can now walk independently and confidently. He's 16 months now. Yayy Alhamdulillah!

It's just too cute seeing him terkedek-kedek ke sana ke mari walking and exploring excitedly. He likes to show off, this fella. On his second walking day, he started to walk while dancing and clapping his hands like he owns the world (-___-)

Punya lah dia happy dapat kaki smpai dah 2 malam bangon kol 3 pagi and demanded to walk. 3am! Tuhan je tau betapa kami laki bini kemengantukan layan pe'el budak ni. Bed time pon dah berubah. Selalunya dia kol 9pm dah lights out dan tido. Sekarang dah lights out pon dia takmo tido. Kene la layan dia berjalan dan naik turun tangga. Kol 11pm lebih baru tido.

Yesterday we went to the Curve with my brother and his fiancee (as usual, Mr. Chenta was working). At first Afif ok je dok dalam stroller. Makan kat Sakae Sushi biasa la lasak dia. His first time eating Japanese. Fed him chawanmushi and rice with salmon teriyaki. He likes them! Sushi tak berani aku bagi sebab mentah2 ni..


Anyways, lepas makan aku gi beli kopi jap kat Coffea Coffee. Pastu cari diorang. Dari jauh aku nampak ada sorang budak berjalan sambil joget gelak2 kat tengah orang ramai. I was like "wehhh tu anak aku!" Jerit dalam hati je la mampu. Jakun sebenarnya. Faizal tengah gelak2 tengok dia berjoget gitu. 

He saw me and terkedek walked to me. Kemain la budak ni. Dah takmo dok dalam stroller rupanya. So the whole time, terpaksa la kasi dia berjalan sambil kejar sambil cuba untuk pegang tangan dia. While wearing a pair of 5-inch wedges. Fuhhh.. Sumpah penat. I swear i feel my hips dislocating. I learnt my lesson. From this point onward, no heels for me on outings with Afif. Yup, mommy shoes on.


Afif & Uncle Aqil.
Tua 2 tahun je uncle awak ni. Pasni boleh la join uncle lari-lari. Mama tau awak dah lama teringin.

Random Babbling

- have NOT been blogging lately because i can hardly find time to blog. Got my hands full of Afif during the day and when he goes to bed, i'd rather catch up on tv, series and movies than typing words into my blog.

- newfound respect for SAHMs. i used to think "nahhh.. They can't be THAT busy". i take back those words. every. Single. One. Of. It. It's exhausting. If i ever be a full time SAHM, i'll try to do a better job. But the reward of spending time with your baby at home everyday is priceless.

- Afif grows in front of my eyes for the past 1.5 month and i'm so amazed at the rate of development. Tiba-tiba dah boleh jalan (walaupon tak sepenuhnya lagi). He now makes his own decision. If i want to put him on the baby chair, i have to ask "Nak duduk sini tak?". Or "nak makan yogurt tak?" *point at yogurt*. "Jom kita mandi!" *point at the toilet* He'll answer by nodding or shaking his head. i mean, when and how did he pick that up? If he shakes his head but i still put him on the chair, beriya dia peluk aku takmo duduk. 

-last two weeks Afif jatuh 2 kali in one day. First, jatuh katil masa afternoon nap. Thank God bantal jatuh dulu and dia jatuh atas bantal. Nanges terkejut je. Second time masa berjalan sebab karpet licin. Bibir dia berdarah atas bawah. Seriau tengok darah banyak. Nasib baik dia ok je pastu. i'm kinda glad he fell. Sebabnya kalo ada aku, aku kan overly worried mom.. Nak jatuh je aku sambut so dia tak pernah jatuh teruk. Ni dia jatuh while i wasnt there so i hope he learn something. True enough after that, dia more careful.

- Bibir dia yang berdarah tu jadi ulcer a few days lepas jatuh. Kesian gila menanges everytime makan. Last-last, 3 hari dia langsung tanak makan apa. Nampak je sudu dia trus geleng kepala. Aku boleh suap solid food je masukkan betul-betul dalam mulut supaya tak kena ulcer. Bayangkan sehari makan 5-6 cubit roti je. Tuhan je tau camne aku risau. Nasib baik boleh breastfeed. Banyak rely on susu je la. Alhamdulillah 2-3 hari ni dah ok ulcer dia. tengah kemaruk makan la ni.

- past week rajin plak aku masak memasak benda fancy sket. Ok la tak rajin mana. Pancakes and lasagna je. That's something compared to my daily lauk pauk je.

- This time around, ramai lak kekawan beranak. Aku tetiba takot nak beranak normal. My c-section and recovery were easy, Alhamdulillah. Aku tetiba terfikir mampu ke aku nak merasa sakit contraction dan meneran kalau branak normal? Haritu aku merasa air ketuban pecah and contraction sampai 2cm je. Camne nak tahan smpai 10cm? Seriau tetiba.

- No. i'm not pregnant yet. Hold off dulu lah any plans for Adik. Nak concentrate on Afif's hearing and speech development dulu. Nanti agak-agak dah ok baru try. Of course, we plan but Allah is the best planner :)

Taking Him Out


One of my goals while on leave is to take Afif out, enjoying the outdoors as much as possible. You know how most child experts suggests exposing children to the outdoor in early childhood, stuff like that.. Besides, i really think that staying at home all day will make me lose my mind. Tak kira lagi kesenangan untuk menambah berat badan.  By taking Afif out, i can get some sweat on. At least that's what i've been telling myself.

i am not too ambitious. Come on, even i wouldn't believe i'd have the energy to take him out everyday after running after him indoor (serious penat jaga budak baru nak dapat kaki). 3-4 times a week with half an hour each sessions will do for us. 

So far so good laa.. Some days we'll go to the playground by car. Some days, i put him in the stroller and jog to the playground. Kalau malas sangat, main sepak-sepak bola kat laman rumah je or take him for a walk around the block. As Mr. Chenta is working most days, slalunya gi playground bertemankan adik aku, Redha.






Favorite dia kat playground adalah slide and swing. Tapi takmo swing sendiri dlm baby swing tu. Nak swing ngan aku, mungkin sebab aku nyanyi sambil berbuai (fefeeling Bawang Putih Bawang Merah gittew). Haritu terhantuk kat slide skali. Benjol kepala. Sejak tu dia kureng sket naik slide. Kalo nampak budak2 besar dr dia main, sibok gak nak join. Tak sedar diri jalan pon berpimpin lagi.

Lepas terhantuk, tuam pakai frozen peas/mix vege. Benjol tak ketara pastu. 

Btw, last week dia dah start jalan sendiri. Wiwiwi. At last. Dah boleh la 10 tapak jalan sendiri. Tapi kitorang still kene berjaga-jaga sebabnya dia kalau jatuh bukan terduduk/tahan ngan lutut. Dia jatuh kaki tegak maka akan tersembam head first. Dah 2 kali jatuh benjol. Adoi laa anak aku. Itsokay, awak dah leh jalan is good enough for mama and daddy. In a few weeks you'll be a pro.
