Because I Don't Rave About Them Enough..

Just grabbing a few minutes here to post an entry before I go for one of my many meetings of the day.

Mohammad Naqib. That’s my baby nephew. Sorry, no pictures yet, but I’ll describe him for you. Tiny, gangly like the father, with thin, blond hair. You read right, his hair is blond!! Or rather auburn. Light brown. Whatever, it’s not black. MIL said it’s normal for some babies to have brown hair at first then it falls out and the black, permanent hair grow in.
He’s tiny, weighing in at 2.2kg when he was born. Kind of surprising coz SIL was healthy when pregnant, not a bout of morning sickness. Hubby kept looking at Naqib asking “where’s the meat on this kid?”, both of his daughters came out round and chubby. Hahaha. But he’s healthy and has a fine set of lungs on him. Alhamdulillah.

I haven’t updates much on my girls lately. Dina has started talking in German so instead of just Bababababa, she has now added Googibiloba, ugabanana and sheeebinono to her vocabulary. She now knows when to nod to mean yes and when to shake her head and scream to mean NO! She’s learned to put her milk bottle on the table when she’s done and to take her shoes from the shoe rack when she wants to go outside. She can push herself forward on her bike, instead of just backwards. She likes sitting in my lap to read her books to me, with arms and intonation going up and down as she narrates the story. She adores her big sister, even when they’re fighting over the same toy.

Dania has grown so much, it’s alarming. I can’t believe she’s going to be four in 2 months time. She loves drawing, coloring and reading. She loves playing her computer games and has gotten into the habit of drawing up a second chair to the computer table so that Dina can join in too. I don’t know when it started but every night now before she goes to bed, she would give me a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. Goodnight Ibu, Assalamualaikum. Bless that child, for every gray hair she gives me with her antics, she makes up for it with her love and cuteness.

Ila: I'm sure you'll have many cute and cuddly kids of your own. Insya'allah...

Yes, my nephew is tiny. Memang underweight. He wasn't born prematurely, he's just small. But he's growing, my SIL says she has to breastfeed him every two hrs. Hehehe..

Along said...

Mummy-o: Hehe, isn't it cute? We like to pretend calling each other on the phone, she even pretends to go outside to get "better reception" on her "handphone". Hahaha..

Syikin: Hehehe..sib baik mata tak biru. Takpe, nanti bleh jimat duit takyah buat coloring.

Yes, Along, Rave rave rave! What a wonderful time in one's life to have the pleasure of seeing these little ones grow into young girls and someday young women.

It is a huge responsibity too --(I have 2 daughters also) because it is their mother who they will emulate, and who teaches them how to grow up to be successful and happy women.

I love my girls...
