Tasha Is 1!!

Alhamdulillah..

Time really flies. Tasha is one year old today..

MasyaAllah, God gave us this cheerful, bubbly little girl to our family. I have no words to describe my feelings towards this little angel. When we first had Bella, I thought I have given my all to her. All my love that I have inside me, all for Bella. Before Tasha was born, I was worried I could not give Tasha as much love as I had for Bella.. simply because I have given all to B!! To my surprise, I was wrong.. the love just grow and grow and grow.. and I equally love these two girls so much, not even an ounce less between these two.

Subhanallah.

I guess that what mommies do, right?

To love..

Happy birthday Tasha!!

I love you more than you ever know..

The Laid-Back and The Clean-Obsessed!

Another outing day..

This time the girls get to enjoy the beach!!

We were in PD yesterday evening. It was just a day trip. We drove down to PD after lunch and already back in KL by 7pm. Both grandparents came and join us together with their cousins. We had real fun, we brought food from home, with tikar.. had our teatime under the tree. It’s just so nice to be together with the family enjoying the nature..

To our surprise, we gotta know Tasha is such a laid-back child. She loves running around (ok, not really running but walking..) with her barefoot enjoying the sand. She just sit on the sand and started to play with it (and that includes putting it in her mouth!! Haha..)

That one definitely she got it from her daddy!!

She doesn’t even bother the sand in between her toes. She loves it!!

And that’s her enjoying the waves and wet sand on her own. No drama at all!!

And Bella, on the other hand… is a clean-obsessed!! (Like mommy!! Hahah..)

She wanted to build a sand castle but doesn’t want her hands to get dirty. Haha.. I had to sit down with her and slowly make her touch the sand and explain to her it’s ok that her hand is dirty. It takes time but towards the end, she’s getting better at it!

And to get her into the water, is another episode of drama. Maybe the waves scares her. She’s only convinced to go into the water when I told her the sea is just a huge swimming pool.. Hahahha.. It’s true isn’t it??

And she believes me!!

Owh, and my sister (Dr Hamizah) is back in KL for her maternity leave. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last September, Rhea Aireen, now 3 months old. Here she is with her babatok..

Check out her thigh!! Yummehhh!!!

It was definitely a memorable day for all of us. Since we had too much fun.. and Bella needs more beach-training (hehe..) we definitely gonna do this more often!! ;)

Lazy Mommy Recipe!

Hi all!!

Gosh, my husband is not around this week. He’s currently attending a United Nation workshop in Beijing for a week. So, I’m left with my two girls running around like a circus. Haha.. Tiring but I’m having fun.. a mommy-kinda-fun. Yes, I miss having him around. It makes me feel more appreciative towards him.. Thank you, S for helping me with the kids.

Since I’m alone, well, not really because I have a stay-home-kakak who is helping me with the housework (no, I don’t call her my maid because she’s more like my family. Kak Yah has been with my family since I was 8 month old and now she’s staying with me!) She is definitely a great help but still it’s always me and my husband who does all the jobs with Bella and Tasha. Anyway, that’s not the point, I just wanna share with you a lazy-mommy recipe that I just discovered for Tasha.

I know it looks not so presentable.. Hahaha.. but it taste super yummy and packed with nutritions.. Guess what is that? Thats actually avocado and banana puree. Not need any cooking skill, just an avocado mixed with banana and smash it together. Avocado is very creamy, yummy and a little buttery with the sweetness of banana.. Memang sedap!

Avocado contains a lot of monounsaturated fat, omega-3 fatty acid, all the vitamins, potassium, folic acid and all the goodness thats needed for a growing child. I just don’t know why I didn’t serve this to Bella when she was younger..

Tasha loves it!!

Oh.. and guess what I discovered a few days ago…

Gigi!!

Tasha’s first gigi!! Yayy!!!

Hahahha.. Yup, I giggle like a small child when I noticed her gigi.. finally!!

Till then,

Our Newborn Daughter

We finally have a name for B’s little sister!!! It doesnt took us long to decided on her name this time..

We think the name suits her well :) insyaAllah..

Daddy went to Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara today to register her. To those who doesn’t know, you have to register newborns within 14 days after the baby is born. If you took more than 14 days, you’ll be fine!!!

Malu lar kan kalu kena denda.. Haha..

So, we have decided to name our daughter..

Sophea Natasha

(insert fireworks here)

Hahaha..

Almost like her sister..

Sophea Isabella.

We love the name ‘Sophea’ so much.. It means ‘wise and beautiful’

we decided to keep it..

and daddy chose ‘Natasha’ because it means ‘strong’. This baby is a strong baby.. after all ups and downs during pregnancy and delivery, she made it through!!

And ‘Natasha’ also means ‘gift of God’.. Which she truly is :)

Owh.. And btw, B and daddy is in Kosmo newspaper today!!!

Check them out!!

Where’s Tasha’s pic? Nanti ok ;) X

Truly Malaysian!!

Today we brought B to her first visit to.. mamak shop!!! Hehehe..

You’re not a truly Malaysian if..

1) You don’t eat nasi lemak!!

2) You don’t eat durian!!

3) You don’t eat mamak food!!

Yes!! That’s my definition of Malaysian citizens ;)

So.. #1.. checked!! (of course without the sambal!!)

#2.. checked!! (Yup, I’ve given Bella durian before!! Hahaha… and she loves it!!)

and today, time to proceed with #3!!

She finished 2 hard-boiled egg with an introduction to tose telur!! Her verdict.. she loves it!!

No worries, mommies.. no teh ais yet for Bella :D

B’s First Movie at the Cinema!!

 

Yesterday we brought B to her first movie ever :) We chose to brought her to watch Sammy2 because underwater creatures excites her..

Since now she can concentrate on the screen better, so we guess it’s a good time to let her experience something different..

 

 

Ok.. thats us in the dark without the flash! Hahah.. B is on my lap and daddy is next to me.. Can see or not? Hehe..

B managed to last for a good 30 minutes watching the cartoon before she started to scream (at the turtle maybe!!) and wanted to walk around.. Hahaha..

We malu and left the cinema after that :D

 

B’s First Haircut..

We just got back from B’s music class and her first haircut!! Yay!! Not easy… it’s almost impossible to get her to sit quietly.. Only in my dreams!!

We found this place, that has toy cars to attract babies and toddlers.. I thought B will be excited..!

But not for long.. within 10 seconds, she became restless and wanting something new to distract her..

One after another..

Not easy.. not easy..

Fuhh.. lucky she doesnt have lots of hair like Rapunzel..
