Aulia's big girl room reveal

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Ever since the last time we tried and failed to get Aulia' to sleep in a big girl bed, I've been chatting it up and periodically asking her if she wants to try it again. The answer was always no, or not yet, or "maybe later." But later finally came on last few weekends, when she actually agreed to sleep in her big girl bed which is in another room. In an effort to avoid jinxing the situation, I've avoided posting about it, but it's official. Aulia' is sleeping in a big girl bed, and she's happy about it!

She fell out on the first night and I realized I forgot to put pillow down (#momfail). She was totally fine despite the incredibly loud noise that sent me and hubby running from the next bedroom at vampire speed! And I assumed she'd figure it out after the first fall and learned to adjust the other night.

And the best part (here's where I'm going to jinx myself, I'm sure...) is that she doesn't get out of bed to roam at night or in the morning when she wakes up. She doesn't wake up any earlier because of her new-found freedom and doesn't come and wake us up. I worried those things would happen, which is why I was okay waiting for so long..

We're so proud. Our baby girl finally sleep on her own bed, in her own bedroom :) :)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

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…

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…

Preggy Diaries: 2nd Trimester

I am overwhelmed with the people who congratulated us ❤❤

Okay just a short story about our 5 months ultrasound check up. My first "legit" ultrasound was carried out by our gynae in KPJ Ipoh, Dr. Zamzida and nothing seeing our baby's heartbeat the first time felt surreal. It's something like I have been very blessed to have this munch. Dr. Zamzida was very happy we finally succeed to naturally conceived and she pray the best for our journey and the baby. Unfortunately we won't be able to do our monthly check up with her because it would be too far for us to go all the way to and fro Ipoh every month. My husband already decided on where to deliver the baby and whom will be my gynae throughout our 10 months journey. He seems very committed for baby no. 2 😊

We started our monthly maternity check up at 12 weeks with Dr. Zunita at Tunku Azizah Maternity Home, and this is our ultrasound results for 20 weeks check up. Alhamdulillah, the baby heart beat is perfectly nor…
