My Favourite Things

Assalaualaikum & hallo!

One of the things that I love doing with Iman is singing (Oh, she's 50 days old today. Much love for that Sweet Cheeks! ) From zikr, nasheed to nursery rhymes; all those keep her entertained & make her coo and make me want to sing more despite my syok sendiri voice. Lols!

But but, I was in my school's choir team for 2 years & for 2 years in a row in 2000 & 2001, we were the first runner up in the State Level Choir Competition. So, my voice isn't that bad at all huh?

Anyway, these 2 songs from The Sound of Music have been my all time favourite (in fact, I love all the songs!). And since it's been more than a decade since I left my secondary school, I kinda mess up the lyrics. Malu la please nak show off depan Iman that her Mama can sing but lyrics ke laut :')

The Sound Of Music
The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears
My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
That rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
From a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over Stones on its way
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once more

My Favourite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens 
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs 
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

44 Days of Utmost Happiness ♥

07/07/2017. Day 24
Mama & Iman Soraya
Assalamualaikum & hallo!

It's sad to see that I'm not that persistent in updating this space much to my dismay, especially anything related with our Daughter. Time flies so fast; our Iman Soraya is 44 days old today & I'll back to work on 06/08 when she will be 54 days old. Booo!

Tak cukup 2 bulan after delivery because I took maternity leave 3 weeks early sebab hari tu ingat deliver before EDD kan? Tengok-tengok deliver 11 days past EDD. Lols!

Nonetheless, thank to Instagram. At least I got to update her photos on her significant days, like when she reached certain days, her weekly updates etc. How I wish I can have everything about her recorded because baby grows up so fast! Rindunyaaa masa Iman kecik-kecik halus. Not that she's big already, she's not even 2 months old yet but beza la kecik dulu & kecik sekarang. Huhu! #hormonalmother #clingymother #masalahibubekerja

Going to do some outdated posts about her which beyond any reasonable doubt will make me cry when I read them in the future. Sigh! Rindu Iman already although ada ni ha tengah tidur kat sebelah

I love you very much, Iman Nanti kejap lagi Mama join Iman tidur. Tapi malam ni macam lambat sikit tidur sebab nak study Ikea website kejap

6 Weeks Of Utmost Happiness ♥

Iman Soraya. 6 Weeks Old. 25/07/2017

Dear my precious Daughter, Iman Soraya

You are just 6 weeks old but the love I have for you feels like it has been there for eternity. I never knew a mother's love can be this deep, selfless, fierce & strong. You are constantly in my mind, my priority & one of the utmost reasons I want to be a better person everyday

Grow up well & healthy, Love. Mama & Papa love you so much that we would do anything to see you grow up well, InsyaAllah. Mama juga berdoa semoga fasa cepat terjaga from nap ini serta diiringi tangisan bergelingan air mata bakal berakhir very very soon. Mama nak start kerja dah ni Iman & thinking about it makes me sad. I'm so going to miss youuuuu! :(

5 Weeks Of Utmost Happiness ♥

 Iman Soraya. 5 Weeks Old. 18/07/2017
Iman & Tok Ma; on our way home from her first month's check up at Klinik Desa Parit

Our Baby Girl is 35 days / 5 weeks old today. Alhamdulillah!

As much as I want to end this confinement & keluar jalan-jalan as a family of 3 with her, the fact that our Daughter is getting bigger day by day makes me sad! From 3.22kg & 51cm when she was born (13/06/2017) to 4.1kg & 56cm last Sunday (16/07/2017), she is definitely membesar bagaikan juara!

Tqvm Iman for making me feel like I'm a super important person to you whenever you only want me to lull you to sleep or whenever you find solace in the warmth comfort of my cuddle. Ok fine Tok Ma lagi power but that's another story. Lols!

Mama & Papa love you so much Iman Soraya! Grow up well, healthy, pious, smart & awesome alright? InsyaAllah!

4 Weeks of Happiness ♥

 Iman Soraya. 4 Weeks Old. 11/07/2017

Our precious Daughter, Iman Soraya turns 4 weeks / 1 month old today! Alhamdulillah!

4 weeks means 30 days of happiness, sleep-deprived Papa &  Mama (hehe!), many first try & error incidents, many first moments etc. Parenthood is full with ups & downs but Alhamdulillah for giving us the chance to experience all these. We are highly grateful to Allah swt

At this age, Iman really loves her milk 🍼 (4oz sekali minum sometimes), sleeping in people's arms (she's not choosy yet at this age. Hehe!), staring at people as if she's studying them & likes to sleep in our air conditioned room. She dislikes noise, waiting for her milk & wet diaper. Taking care of her isn't difficult, Alhamdulillah & hopefully this will continue until Iman besarlah. InsyaAllah

Oh, it also means I've another 4 weeks before I go back to work. Oh noooo! I'm not ready yet to leave this Little Girl at home! She needs me! And I need to love her more. We need each other la senang cerita! Why can't we have 2 years of maternity leave instead? #clingymother #dilemaseorangibubekerja
