Almost TWO ^_^

Assalamualaikum wbt..
Guess who's 20 month??

Aulia' is now 8.3kg and 79cm. She's 100% perfect and healthy as usual. Her appointment didn't go so well, though. It's official: she's absolutely terrified of the doctor. The minute she saw the nurse, she got all clingy and as soon as I set her on the table and started to undress her, she lost her mind. I had to stand on the scale with her to get her weight, and when the doctor tried to look in her ears, we had to physically restrain her while she turned bright red fighting us. It was just terrible. She's loosing her weight which is another terrible thing. Poor girl. Hubby was there though, and he was so sweet with her, trying to calm her down and cheer her up. It actually did help a bit to get her mind of all the torture at the end:)
Otherwise, she's a normal totally bipolar toddler. Happy, silly and funny one minute...a screaming mess the next. She's miss independent, too. She loves to try to do things…

Happy Papa day!

It stinks that it takes Father's Day for me to acknowledge how great my husband is on this blog. All my friends and family know what an amazing dad he is to our daughter because they see it day in and day out. He is my true partner. He gets his hands dirty and really enjoys doing it. We both are working full time and I never hear any complaints from my hubby when it's time to jump in and participate. 
I couldn't have asked for a better father to my children. 
We celebrated father's day over dinner and Aulia' was so excited once dessert is served.. In the end, it was a great day. Hubby enjoyed himself which is all that matters. It was HIS day after all :) 
Dear Papa, Thank you for being the pillar of our strength and thank you for everything you are. Life is more beautiful when you are around.  I love you!
Happy Papa's day to all fathers in the world!

Resolution Review,Year is almost half over!

Assalamualaikum wbt..



Well, June is already halfway, 6 months for 2013 is almost done! I can't believe it . So here is the list I created back in December last year for my 2013 goals. 
My 2013 Resolutions:
1) Lose Weight 2) Attempt New look 3)Embrace Change with Open Arms 4)Travel Smart and Travel More 5) Save Wisely 6) A New Job 7) Do more Sedekah 8) Cooking 9) Not to eat Pineapple
Number one, is no go. I was going to focus on my current weight and it was so hard to lose weight when you're already underweight. My husband think 48 kilos is just perfect for me. Whatever it is, I need to balance off my diet with more healthy food. I went for a diet consultation few months ago and it help me alot with my healthy food diet. 
Number two, for some reason I already start this goal since January. I got new hair cut and shaping up my waist. I started doing belly dance exercise like everyday once I get back from work. Hoping that my hard work paid off soon!
Number three, yeah I don'…

My breastfeeding adventure while working

Assalamualaikum wbt...
I have a baby girl. Aulia'. And everyday I returned to work full-time (meaning 60 hours away from her each week) when she was 8 weeks old. I was also blessed with a pair of boobs made for producing milk.

Oh wait! Maybe I should start this with a disclaimer?
If you have no interest in reading about breast milk, bottles, pumps, or sore boobs, feel free to leave and return another day. I swear this will be my last time talking about boob juice until my next kiddo comes along (who's not even twinkle in our eyes as of today).  For those of you who can relate to me, or want some advice, or maybe just really like reading about breastfeeding, please stick around. 
I always knew I wanted to breastfeed my child. I also knew I probably wasn't going to be one of those parents who breastfed their kid through age three like my sister did for example. I would have loved to make it until my kiddo turned one, but that didn't happen. However, given the circumstanc…

Dear Aulia'

Assalamualaikum wbt..
Dear Aulia'



You were up at 1.30 am last night..why? I have no idea. As we rocked the night away, I wondered if you were getting new teeth, had a bad dream or hungry (figured out later it was my stomach growling, not yours!)

By 3.00 am I thought you were asleep, your eyes we closed, the only thing moving was your hand playing with your hair. So I laid you down in your crib, only to found out you just weren't ready..I let you cry it out a little, but you really were not having any part of it.



So I went back in and we continued to rock,your eyes closed and you continued to play with your hair, I know you were comfortable laying in my arm as we rocked and I loved the cuddling, by 3.45 am I thought you were ready to head to crib again, but you let me know differently. I changed rocking positions so we were chest to chest and you feel right asleep within 3 minutes. I'll have to remember that position for the next time you wake up in the middle of the night…

My brave little girl swim underwater

Assalamualaikum wbt..
Yesterday marks the second month of Aulia' swimming lesson. She was 22 months old. It went pretty well. I wasn't so keen on all the chemicals in the water, but what do you do when you've got lots of kid's in a pool together! All those wees!



I was quite surprised. I wasn't expecting it to happen in her second month lesson- the instructors giving Aulia' her first underwater experience. Her instructor let Aulia' play for a while, practice jumping activities in the water until her eyes level while making an eye contact with her papa. Hubby just need to raise her a little bit and gently put her under the water. 
At home, we was watching movies of kids swimming and we talked about how much fun it is and how we love going under water. In that way, she can be mentally prepared and feel excited on what we are going to do today. 
All we need is her to be comfortable and playful. Hubby then counted to three, said Aulia's name for the signal,…

I needs a new pair of flats!

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I have been sporting the same pair of flats for over 1 year now. They are plain, brown and worn to the bone.

I need some color, style and comfort in a new pair of flats! Off to the web I search!












Okay, It's time to go for shoe shopping!!

Filling the weekend with Aulia'

Assalamualaikum wbt..
It's funny how the to-do list can be a mile long, but it all goes out the window when you're spending the day along with your children. Priorities shift from productivity too simply meeting (and hopefully exceeding) their needs. If you're lucky, maybe you can check off a couple things, but if it isn't in their best interest then chances are it isn't yours. And no matter how long the list of things you just MUST get done is, when it comes to entertaining lil girl all day long, there just isn't enough to do. 
I'm coming down off a lovely 3-days weekend spent at home. 1 day MC taken due to my Dysmenorrhoea and hub had to work on the weekend for his freelance design works. I got some more practice in the Mom vs The Kid game. I'm happy to report that I had the BEST weekend and learned a couple of things along the way..
1.  I am an awesome mom. And I say that with confidence (if you're a mom, you should say it too!). This weekend I n…

June first

Assalamualaikum wbt..
Happy June! Here are my goals for this month! I did pretty good last month, did 4 of my 5 goals! One of it that I did not post on my blog was I need at least bake a healthy food for Aulia' and I did it last week:) Hurrah!!And that 5th goal was kind of a filter, so nothing lost there! I know I will for sure do one of these goals, as for the others..we will see!
