Big boys and their toys.

The day has come. My precious baby boy is now an active, fast talking, Β very soon to be 4 year old!

Where did the time go?

I wanted to do something big for his birthday this year. Since we skipped his birthday last year and went for a holiday instead.

This year, I’m flexing all my creative muscles for a real toddlers birthday party! So exciting.

I’ve been toying around with a couple of themes, but I’ve narrowed down the theme to STAR WARS.9d24dfe80d5f8d971c7749a5018c6959.jpg

Weeeeeeee so excited! Check out my obsessive pinterest board for the ideas i’ve collected.

Sidenote: Who else is excited about β€ͺ#β€ŽTheForceAwakens? πŸ˜€



Letter to my Son #1.

My Dearest Mahdi,

It’s amazing to think that it’s only been a year since you came into our lives. Since you feel as apart of us as any of our limbs, we can hardly remember our lives before you came.

I remember last year, on this very day when i first heard you crying, i was so overwhelmed with emotions that i, myself started crying… then i finally laid my eyes on you. You were powdery white, perfect except for a tiny scar on your forehead.. others would have been freaked out by this scar, but to me you were still the most beautiful little man i had ever seen. Plus, Tok Mama reckoned the scar made you look like Harry Potter. πŸ™‚

Ayahanda was so happy to meet you, he was so speechless (which is rare for Ayahanda), and there was a funny incident with your poop, which happened that night while he took care of you because i was resting, it will be my most treasured memory forever.

In this ONE year, We’ve taught you about life, how to clap, about words, music, play, what love and happy means, and about important things such as how to walk and not eat strange objects from the floor.

In return, you have taught us how to be stronger, be more patient, laugh more than our stomach muscles can take, survive on minimal sleep, love deeper than we ever thought possible and pray harder everyday that tomorrow brings us closer together.

You’ve opened our eyes to what real beauty and real happiness means, and our hearts are bursting because you’re in our lives.

Soon you will be old enough to talk, walk and make friends. Remember to always share your toys, be kind to others, even if they are mean to you, keep being awesome like you are now, and never loose your spirit and zest. πŸ™‚

So, As you grow up, always remember that even though sometimes We are busy, know that we are ALWAYS thinking of you. We are both working hard to give you the best life possible because meΒ and Ayahanda love you so so very much.

Happy Birthday Sayang.

Love Always,
Mak and Ayahanda.

Arrrrgh, it twas a Pirate Party!!

Party day is finally over!!

Thank you everyone for coming, i hope you had a good time, despite the guest of honor being in a mood. huhu

Everything went great! I didn’t get as many pictures as i was hoping for cuz my photographer kept eating.

Somehow it turned into a potluck thing, and we got loads of food… no complaints cuz the food was so great and yummy!!

Anyway, enuf boring talk… here’s some pics!

My, how time has flown!

Can you believe that Mahdi is turning 1 in less than 2 months?

Has it really been almost a year? That is so CRAZY!

Anyway, i’ve been looking at some things to get Mahdi for his birthday, and i am so spoiled for choices! I simply can’t decide!

I’m currently leaning towards the Trike, but it might take up too much space to keep. So we’ll see how. πŸ™‚

November is here!

Let me just say how super excited I am about November…

I’m promising myself i would make a real effort starting from today, that i would;

– eat less carbs
– Go to the gym at least once a week.
– try to cook breakfast and dinner for Muuzi everyday, not just once in awhile.
Wish me luck! πŸ˜€
ps: My baby boy is 10 months old today. He’s is honestly growing up to be quite the young prince charming. He loves to kiss my cheeks and nibble on my chin with his 4 little teeth. I love him SO much. it’s unreal that we could love someone so much.
