Cranky baby girl

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Quick, someone say my name 3 times fast and maybe the sleep issues we've been having for the past few days will magically disappear.  Wait, that's not how it works?! Crap. 

See, I knew I shouldn't have said anything about sleep, because all of a sudden, Aulia' has started waking up at the butt crack of dawn in a bad mood. Normally, during the week when I get ready for work and to get her at 6.45 am and she's usually still laying down (though not always asleep). On the weekends, she's been known to sleep (or stay quiet in her bed) until as late as 8.30!

Not lately though. Since Saturday, the latest she's slept is 5am. On Monday she was crying at 4am so I tried to rock her back to sleep. She wasn't having any of that and restless, so hubby decided to put her in the cradle.

No such luck. He said she maybe dozed off and on for about 30 minutes, but was wide awake and restless the whole time. Same thing in the morning, starting at 5am. I'm thinking it must be a growth spurt, but of course I worry that she's having some sort of reaction to the whole milk we've started gradually adding to her breast milk (hopefully not, but it's just in my nature to worry about things like this).

Whatever it is, I'm ready for this phase to be over! Aside from me being tired, she's more tired and cranky, which is making her transition to the toddler room at daycare this week a bit rocky so far, and her evenings full of tears. I really do like to think of Aulia as a generally happy baby, but lately that image is becoming a little tarnished...


I want my sweet, smiley, good sleeper back..pretty please?

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

Aulia' tindik telinga:)

Assalammualaikum wbt..
Anak dara aku dah lama mintak dok nak pakai subang..alahaii..girly stuff gitu. Dia tengok aku pakai makeup dia pun nak makeup. Tengok pakai lipstick dia pun nak jugak. . . Bulan lepas ni dia tengok ada sorang girl dalam lingkungan umur 4-5 tahun kat mall pakai subang..Dia kata cantik..dia pun nak..

Memang selalu dia buat ayat macam tu kalau nak apa-apa..

"Ibu..cantiknye yang kat telinga dia tu ibu..tengok tu..apa tu? Aulia' rasa Aulia' pun nak la jugak"

Haa gitew..

Aku pun cakap..

"Tu subang. Nak pakai subang, kene tindik telinga dulu. Klau nak tindik, kene tembak dulu telinga sampai berdarah baru boleh pakai subang.."

Aku saja bagi cerita horror sikit kat dia so conversation tu boleh stop kat situ..

Dia pun tenung je aku bila aku sebut "berdarah-darah" tu...agaknya tak berani nak continue cerita lagi. Hahaha.Berjaya!


Ternyata aku salah. Anak aku boleh memorize cerita aku sampai la malam masa nak tidur memang kami akan baca…
