Mummy Away

Goshhh...i have so many postings in the draft, and in my head but i was freaking busy busy busy. I dont know la bila nak habis busy kerja ni *sigh*

Had lab test last week and stuck in putrajaya all day long. Drive back to kl then back to kd, with insane rain and traffic, my life never been busier.

Zaha turned 3 on the 10th and i was so excited because she is kinda big and understand what birthday is - the day you blow the candles and get to eat cakes and tonnes of sugar and not to forget the abundance presents. She's been watching lotsa videos on utube on girls opening their christmas present and everytime i am around she will say "mommyyy zahra nak merry christmas, nanti mommy beli hadiah banyak ok?". Haihhhh exposure..

So i wanted to splash some party for her on 26th..called caterer, bought party stuff etc etc only to cancel bcause i have oversea training, so the party is postponed to 2/2, a day after i reach malaysia.

Talking about this training..this is my first time away from my hubby, zahra and emir. I am worried about zahra..but i've been telling her days ahead that i'm going away for some time. And am worried the most about emir because he still on breastfeeding and he wakes up a few time during the night for milk session. And i haven't train him on bottle during the night, so this is kinda 'cold turkey' action for him. Poor my hubby as well..i hope he can manage.

My parents came down to lend a hand..but i don't know how it's going to be..hope all is good.

Anyway, i am going away for 5 days to cebu island, philippines. A place i haven't been and i'm kinda excited about it. But it feels incomplete without MrComot and the kids, and the timing is not perfect as well, i mean the rush, the hectic schedule and the workload at the office. I still need to coordinate some work from Cebu via emails. Hopefully the connection is from tripadvisors that the internet quite bad there.

And need to coordinate about the party as well. I have booked the caterer but havent paid the deposit. Dia ckp nak bagi bank account ptg ni..tapi x bagi2. Already gave my husband hp no..jgn dia tak contact til end sudahhh.

Will try to blog more!

Kids Are Fun

Kids are fun. They wear whatever they feel like to. We went to Giant after dinner last weekend, things that we rarely do because night time = at home time, unless we dine outside.

Anyway Zahra request to wear her hello kitty (that's her current fav dress, kalau boleh everyday nak pakai baju tu) + her stripey sleeping pant, because according to her, Giant is cold and it's night time, so she refused the normal legging + the hama bead necklace + furry turquoise headband + sport shoes.

I tried to take off the headband because it looks funny and her hair looks weird, but she refused, so, I was like, okayyy just wear whatever you want to.

She feels like a princess and so happy with her outfit that night. Yeah, kids are fun.

My 15-months Handsome Boy

My handsome young man is 15-months already!! Gosh...I remember writing about Zahra's progress EVERY month but not with this young lad, my hands are quite full nowadays. Anyway, my love for him is never less, take note handsome boy, in any case you read this in the future hehe..

Ok, let see what he's up to at 15th months.

1) Can walk and run steadily already and very anxious to JUMP! He will find any slightly elevated place, like a box, or the weighing scale and jump from there. Well, it's not that high, but definitely high for a boy like him to attempt that stunt. And do you know that the weighing scale broke already? I don't know la budak kecik ni buat macam mana isk isk isk..

2) Not a picky eater. He eats everything which is a blessing in disguise because we don't have to worry about his food when we are outside. On the downside, he eats everything, even that stuff is not food, like coins, marble, stone *sigh*. 

We never had this problem with Zahra before so I find it troublesome because I have to keep the floor spotless. Plus, I always thought the parents exaggerated when they said the kids like to put stuff in the mouth, but apparently they are not. Even though he knows that thing is not food, he likes to nibble it in the mouth forever! Well, until I saw and dig it out from his mouth of course haha. There was one time when we were at luncheon party and I saw some shining light from his mouth, and when I checked, it is a battery! Battery is not tasty right? But he refused to take it out. I had to force it out from his mouth. Eating random stuff seriously not funny really, it is dangerous. 

And on the other day, I found him quietly minding his own matter which is verrrry weird, so I checked him only to find that he's eating my acid folic! Right from the foil protector! Sabar je la.

Gigih nak makan ok, sampai jadi serbuk.

Eating toast with strawberry jam, his favourite. Zahra tak suka ok. And notice he's holding the sweeper? Which take me to the next point

3) Sweeper/broom is his BFF. I don't know what's up with the broom but he loves it soooooo much! Like, so so so so much! I bought the white static sweeper from Daiso as his toy. Anyway, he prefers the normal broom yg ada bulu2 tu and I keep it in the wet kitchen and always close the door. Everytime I open the door, he will run to the back and do whatever he can to get the broom. Most of the time when he managed to get it, I will carry him out or rampas (have to!) the broom from him and hid it and he will cry his lung out, like I'm snatching something significant, like a crown from a king. Sangat possessive. This reminds me that I have to buy another small broom from Daiso.

 Tengok, BFF sangat. Tengah makan and main ipad pun nak pegang penyapu.

4) Suka merajuk. Loves to throw himself on the floor bila merajuk. Ish ish ish..this one I don't know where he learnt it from. It's something natural and it's kinda funny to see that your kids have different character. I know everybody is unique, but I don't expect it to be, that different haha. After all they came from same mom and dad right? Pretty interesting.

If he merajuk with me, and I say something to him, he will turn his back to me, siap ada bunyi okkkk "emmpppphhh!" Amboi amboi amboi budak kecik ni. Boleh tahannnnn ok.

 Throwing himself on the floor @ coffee bean the curve. Kat luar rumah pun berani buat. Adoyaiii....anak lelaki sangat.

5) Suka memunggah - sorting through stuff and throwing them out, cause permanent damage. I don't know how many toys that are broken already, most of the toys are legacy from Zahra and in mint condition but when reach this little fella, dah jadi macam-macam.

His favourite corner, behind the door where we keep the strollers.

6) Still on breastfeeding and I love the moment so much. Budak ni suka minum freestyle. Zahra pun ada freestyle but tak seganas this Emir. Emir punya freestyle, macam-macam ok, kadang2 kaki kat dinding la, ohhh how I wish I can record it and share (but that will be obscene right?). It is toooo funny!

7) Babytalk a lot lot lot, but still no prominent word like mommy or daddy. Only a brief mama and kaaa (referring to the cat).

8) Strapping him on the car seat is really a challenge nowadays. He will arch his back, twist his body, refuse to sit in the car seat. Most of the time the job need to be done by both of us, I have to pin his body, MrComot will hold his legs, and we will buckle him in. Tough work, because I can't force him hard, else he might break some bone. We have to distract him with many thing, some works, some doesn't, just need to keep trying.

9) One healthy toddler, minus the normal cough and cold, which pass by briefly. Other than that, I feel that he's growing up too fast!

Overall, he is a very interesting kid. He loves to see me laugh, and sooo manja! Current obsession (instead of the sweeper and broom) is Zahra's pink scooter. The scooter has 4 different sounds - 2 types of mandarin songs, 1 honk, and 1 is signal sound or something and he loves to press the lagu cina tu. I am fine with the song, only that it's damn loud and annoying! Mesti jiran ingat rumah cina mana la pasang lagu kampung ni hahaha. Everytime he press that one, he will look at me with his cheeky face and clap his hand and let out small laugh, like trying to get my approval. So funny ok! Most of the time I feel like shutting it off but kesian tengok muka dia syok2 nak main dengan kita, so I just play it along - clap my hands too until the song finished! Gahhh..anything for you my little one.

A couple of random pics:
Harimau Malaya. The babysitter bought this jersey, on the eve of the match with Thailand. Gigih ok.

Enjoying Korean Strawberry with kakak Zahra.

Happy 15th months darling! Mommy love you sooooooo soooooo much! Grow up strong and clever and good ok? Mwah!

What I want for 2013

Ok, this is going to be stale. I always make a point what I want and need to do every year but none achieved in last year! And some of them already carried forward from 2011! Ahhhh benci benci benci! But yeah, it's a fun thing to do (I mean the wishlist, not the 'none-achieving' part ha ha ha), so I'm gonna make a new list this year! Some will be carried forward, some maybe not.. like the diamond ring. I think I've grown up wiser hahahaha... You can read my 2012 wishlist here by the way.

Anyway recap last year:

Wanted stuff:
1) A color printer - none. Actually almost to get one, as in A-L-M-O-S-T. I've been surveying around and decided to buy this one, already talked to the salesman, and we went there on 31st Dec 2012, and then dia cakap habis ok? HABIS! Ughhhh I almost cross this one from my list. Dang! Anyway it'll be restock soon, so we'll see if I getting it or not, macam dah tak semangat haha..
2) Silhoutte cameo - ilek
3) Timber flooring - ilek
4) Wooden swing - ilek

Needed stuff:
1) Finish my entries on Japan trip in 2008 - NO!
2) Finish album compilation on the honeymoon trip - NO!
3) Finish my entries on Langkawi trip in early 2011 - NO!
4) Finish making my pregnancy journal with Zahra Elena - NO!
5) Finish making my pregnancy journal with Emir Qalef - NO!
6) Edit all the honeymoon trip videos and upload them in youtube - NO!
7) Print the wedding pictures - NO!
8) Kemas my craft stuff - err.. a lil bit, since I already start sewing
9) Launch my online store - it's simple on blogspot je, but I have to take pictures, packing, etc etc. It's tedious to me :( - NO!
10) Start 365-project! - NO!

Oooooo kaaayyyyy. I'm so hopeless!!! I hate my 2012 wishlist! Gahhhhh!!!!

Nevermind that, let's roll to 2013 and see what I *think* I want to have and to do.

What I want for 2013

1) Printer for craft that can wifi and scan

2) A vacation - local / oversea doesn't matter

3) Bias tape maker - Already order this so can I put it in my wishlist? Hihihi

4) Rotary cutter set with mat and ruler 

5) New curtain and sofa cover for the house, current one has been stuck (and unwash) for 4 years! 

6) A proper built-in sewing table

Something like this. It's a built-in base, see that the sewing machine doesn't sit on top of the table? Nice righhhhhttttt? ;)

Ok, enough of the material stuff, let's see my need to do list, and I'm trying to be realistic here, so no more copy paste from last year (haha takut la tu last year punya list panjang).

1) 365-project
2) Open my blogshop, seriously, I bought too many! Need to let go some stuff.
3) Finish my pregnancy journal (Zahra and Emir).

Ok that's all! Honeymoon compilation can be wait I guess? 

Anyway we've been very very very busy. I hope I can achieve more this year. I mean, come on! I'm already in 3-series, I have to do something about my life. I am happy with what I achieving right now, but it's kinda comfortable and I'm afraid it will turn to laziness and that's not pretty right?

So the ultimate goal this year is to be great!

And hope God grant me His great guide in my life. Ameen...
