Hans Turns One!

If this white screen were a piece of paper, it would have wet wrinkly puddles of tears on it. I don't feel like there are any other words to describe how this past year has made me feel. 
Our baby boy turns one in January. My heart just keep exploding with firework everytime he smiles and his mischievous eyes twinkle. Even in the wee hours of the night, when I'm sleep deprived and cranky, I have nothing but love in my heart for this little human. I'll stop with the love-gushing for now, and go onto another fun topic. We celebrated Hans birthday yesterday (belated one month). Kakak Aulia' made pinata for her little brother and we got him balloons and a birthday cake. It was a simple birthday celebration just the four of us. I'm beyond happy!

Hans is such a happy little boy with an active little mind. He's determined and strong. He's been walking for 3 months now, and wants to get into everything. He loves to kiss his sister (and pulling hairs!) and loves to hug and now he can shake hands too.

 Here is a list of other fun Hans-isms:

When he gets excited he jumps! He's been doing this since couple of months ago. He imitate her sister while playing the 'teng-teng' game on the tiles at home. 

His favourite things to play with are: the remote, his Dad's cap and kakak Aulia's ponies. 

He gives kisses. For few months now, Hans has been very good at giving you "kisses". There're always french (open mouth style) and he particularly likes to kiss you when you point your cheek to him. 

He likes to stroke my mouth when he's nursing. It's pretty funny cause he will poke it until he can fit his little finger in. 

Whenever you give him a new object to explore, he likes to flip it over and see what's underneath. He's very inquisitive.

He's a squatter. His favorite position when he's playing on the floor, or taking a brief "rest" from running around the house is to squat really low to the ground. My little yogi.

He laughs. A lot. At pretty much anything. Especially when he's irritate kakak Aulia' while playing. His naughty laughs are the best.

Since he was a newborn, we've been reading him a lot of storybooks. Especially the animal books and I always make the book "fly" into him for a kiss. He always kisses the book. Always.

Okay, I could go on and on and on, but you probably don't really care 😂
I'd like to wrap up this first birthday post with a few words for my son.

Firstly, I want you to know how loved you are. Your Papa, kakak Aulia' and I love you with every inch of our heart. You are also surround by your  grandparents, aunts and uncles who love you like their own child. You are so fortunate to have this fortress of love around you.
Secondly, I want you to know that you Papa and I aren't perfect (hard to imagine, I'm sure) but we are trying to be the best parents we can be. We want to teach you to respect girls, especially your big sister, to love her and always protect her.
We want you to stand on you own feet, and make decision for yourself. We want you to feel supported while being independent. Be a leader, and follow your heart. Always. Ask questions. Explore. And always remember to laugh along the way.
We love you so very much Hans and we hope you have a blast first birthday party (even if you can't remember it-I'm documenting it here so that you'll know one fine day)

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. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  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

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
