Irfan is so focused while watching tv, it becomes 2 pronged – we sometimes use it to sneak out in the morning while his attention is on the tv. On the other hand, when we call for his attention, he doesn’t respond. Sigh 😛
Dear son, You are so lucky to have such a caring father and companion. At times when I can’t bring you and show you delights of life, the world, your babah is always there. And I am thankful for that.
Irfan’s mess at any given day. He’s getting into more mischief, but getting smarter too – he’s learnt so many words this week.
Mentiri Sleepover for Day 2 as we have some errands – waiting for the new mattress, and do some cleaning 😀 I ticked off lots of to do things: like getting a hot water pot just for Mentiri – I have been lugging one along everytime we sleepover and sometimes it feels like moving houseRead more
Our first day of leave spent with this little boy, he’s so delighted we’re both home 😉 He’s learning many words nowadays. So much funtimes! He’s so dramatic too! I was wrong about this lens, it does swirly bokeh beautifully too! hee hee. My favourite of all due to the smooth focusing lens. Fujian 35mmRead more
Parenting for everyone is different and I am experimenting. Telling your toddler no doesn’t work and I wanted to see if punishment will deter him for hitting me. If it was just me – Its ok, but I am concerned if he’d hit his little brother or sister coming soon if he doesn’t start behavingRead more
My downtime on Saturday – most of it spent in the toilet (sorry TMI!) but managed to rest and in the late afternoon, took out my latest arrival in the mail – a silver 35mm f1.7 cmount lens which came with several silver rings (I’ll take a photo of them next time) – which turnRead more
His delight with bubbles! (This post is entirely done on the iPad mini, including photo import via a Camera Connection Kit, edit photo and writing the content. Awesome possum!)
Dear Son, I want to let you play to your hearts content but sometimes the relatives (or maid) stops you from enjoying. Sigh. The balance of life. To balance what I want for you and giving in to relatives. I don’t know what to do. I know one thing, I can’t wait to have ourRead more
Ok, I cheated. This is 4 photos. I couldn’t pick one today so I did 4 😉 This morning was spent lazing about and lots of playing. He was too funny 😉 Around 11+, We left to go to the first wedding function this year. It was hot but it was bearable. Irfan fell asleepRead more
Qadir loves to collect coins. He has dedicated tins for each coin size. We sometimes count (well, he counts and I take photos hehe) and this time there’s a little boy joining in. Oh, there wasn’t much counting after Irfan came in. Tee hee.
Belated New Year Dinner as Lilie was away during our New Year Lunch on 1/1 🙂 This was Pondok Seri Wangi, Gadong.
Irfan’s teething again and he’s grumpy and cranky and becomes so attached, he won’t let me out of his sight. Get well soon, achy baby!
Dear son, You’re growing up so fast. Please don’t. I want to cherish every moment slowly. You look so grown up here, my heartstrings just pulled tight. Soon you’ll be a teenager lounging watching TV just like this. I wish for time to slow..
Outside Anekarasa, Kiulap For 1/1 this time we had lunch with my family, as last year we had a pool bouncer at husband’s 🙂 When choosing the photo of the day, I went “awkward body pose” and “meh, should’ve taken more photos”. And then I figured, this is the reality of us, and I remindRead more

Dear Son, There is nothing sweeter than the feeling of tiny legs wrapping around your thigh or an arm around your elbow. I long to sleep next to your warmth for always. You love to tuck your hands inside the space between us. We have been cosleeping on and off since your birth. Sometimes you’reRead more

Dear Son, You are eating and sleeping a lot nowadays. Not to mention being very very naughty! We are trying our best to tire you out so you’ll sleep through the night and not wake up in the wee morning too. Your favourite thing to do is grab my hand and pull me to whateverRead more
Wishing all who celebrate a Merry Merry XMas .., a photo by lisadragon on Flickr.
Irfan’s favourite toys now are dinosaurs. It was horses a few short months ago!
My Dear Son, You like to parrot things at 1 year and 6 months old. But this was a genuine laugh as you’re watching a favourite cartoon. I’m so very glad I managed to catch it.
