We are 6!

Just another boring post (because I am in the middle of doing something interesting now! Which is much better than this post. Will reveal soon!)

Come to think, it's so mean of me to say that this is a boring post, because it's our 6th anniversary of marriage!

But to be honest, it is indeed a boring one! Not the marriage, I mean this year celebration. Huh, 6 years and already bored of it haha.

Well, we made a promise last year to take a leave from work and spend day time together doing fun stuff, or just go anywhere sans the kids.....but fast forward a year after that, this is how we celebrate it

.... at work.

No holiday, no day off, no nice dinner, not even a card! Gahh!

We were so busy on that day and and we just wish each other "Happy anniversary sayang. Me love you so much". Rushed readying the kids and ourselves for school and work, then off to work and then come back home, had simple even forget what we had for dinner, must be very plain every day food, and then doze off to Disneyland. Just like another routine.

And the next day, we said, dangggg we should do something for that special day. But the next day also went by, also in routine, and plain as ever.

Goshhhhh.. I should push myself and do something right? It won't be fun anymore to celebrate it backdated.

Anyway, some reflections of 6 years being married, with two kids - totally random rants:

1) We are doing well, I think so. Or at least that's how I feel. But things are harder sometimes with the kids. I still coping with the hectic more stress, but don't have the satisfaction

2) Talking about kids, I always have this thought of quitting. From work, for real. People are driven with different thing and at this stage, I am driven by being with my kids and time freedom. It's no fun to be stuck at office, in office hour. We've talked about this, but don't have the push to do it yet. Mostly because I am not ready to loose my earning.

3) My husband is such a wonderful companion and I thank God for all the blessing.

4) We still have disagreement over something..but mostly it's just petty thing that I often brush it I am too old to fight I guess. Drama is no more interesting.

5) Busyness - when will we ever run from it? Maybe this is just another stage in marriage. A part of us to strengthen the constitution that we are building.

That's all I guess?

Wow, it does sound boring haha.

I am thinking of doing something else in my life, not about marriage but more about my personal achievement. But I don't know where to start. And mostly I don't have the gut to do it.

Anyway, 6 years and going strong I hope! Will work for it of course. Just need to add dash of sprinkles, glitters and rainbow ;)

Little Bunny is 3!

My handsome boy turns 3 last Sunday! How fast time flies. I still miss him everyday and still see him as a baby. And the fact that he's growing up which leads to struggle when I tried to cuddle him (as he prefers watching iPad or playing with his trains), breaks my heart. Sigh.

We had simple celebration at @kedai.sebelah in Kelana Jaya during tea time. It's owned by MrComot's auntie and definitely one of my fav shop! Will blog about this later. I've few cool pics to share.

Anyway, since this is kinda ad-hoc celebration and we just inviting few close families, I didn't plan very well. All food and deco is readied by my aunty and we just bring our empty stomach.

I managed to order a customized cake though, made by my creative friends, Ana. Original plan will be the mommy make the cake (ahem!) and I just figured out that, that will be too ambitious given the time left. Thank God Ana able to bake it for me (thank you for taking my last minute order!).

Going gaga over helium balloons

The aunty bought him a big Thomas balloon,a nd of course frozen for the little sister. We have to be "fair" even though it's somebody else's birthday *roll eyes at Zahra*

Which he loves it to the max! He's been hogging the balloon here and there all the time.

I didn't buy anything fancy for him as I wanted to give a real present during his party later. Anyway, I gave him the Talking Troublesome Truck die-cast to add into his collection. The diecast is bought way earlier during Mattel Warehouse Sale (I bought a handful and hid it somewhere so I can take out time to time, given the appropriate time). The irony is, I have to give Zahra something too, so I gave her Ariel barbie going to party collection (also bought from the warehouse) and is more expensive than Emir's present *roll eyes at Zahra again*

Troublesome truck. Look at the cheeky face.

And the real present actually, I gave him a hair cut! His hair was so long that people always mistaken him as a girl. I don't mind really, as long as he looks cute. But the hair is too long and he keep on pushing it away using his hand, dah macam iklan shampoo pun ada haha. Obviously it's kinda irritates him. So chop chop chop it is!

A very crooked hair cut!
The shirt is given by my MIL and he loves it so much! Dah macam penjual Thomas pun ada haha. Well, throw him anything Thomas, he'll be over the moon ;)

Ok so lets talk what's up with him at 3yo.

1) Still baby talk *insert panic mode here*
I've been reading and making test to check if he is ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and although he might have the symptoms, it's very mild. I also understood that the spectrum range is very wide, it can be at risk, very mild, up to a very complex condition. Anyway, even though we can detect autism at young age, it's very hard to determine so, as he could be just another late bloomer. So I decided to wait for a while and see his growth progress before enrolling him to tests and classes. I'm giving him till 4yo insyaAllah, depending on the situation.

2) Still breastfeed
But not fully. Just when I'm at home and throughout the night.

3) Loves train very much
He has gotten over the broom phase and stuck with trains. Any trains will do but Thomas and Friends will be his most fav. He knows all his trains name (even though he couldn't speak yet, I tested by saying each name and he will point to the right one) and can play with them for hours.

I want this trainnnnnnnn

4) Love blueberry very very much
That he can finish a whole 125g at one go! Hence, I decided to call him my blueberry bunny, and reminds me the blue ribbon bunny, Clover! It's Sofia the first's BFF in case you wonder hehe.

Enjoying his blueberries
5) Very manja boy
I guess this is boy's trait. Both are very manja, but in different ways. Zahra more manja on emotion, Emir is physical. He will come meleseh-leseh to me and loves to kiss me with his sloppy mouth. Saliva all over!! Haha

Hmm what else?

Oh mann...I still remember during Zahra's time, I'm able to write out extravagant list of events related to her and now with Emir..doesn't matter really as long as he's a happy kid!

So, happy birthday Emir Qalef! Mommy loves you soo much much muchooo much! May u'll become a good caliph of Allah.
