dian khayla - 15 months progress report


Dian Khayla is now a healthy 15 month-old toddler, Alhamdulillah.
It amazes me how fast toddlers at this age absorb and imitate what they see around them. MashaAllah.

  • These days, she is starting to be a pro at throwing temper tantrums. Whenever things don't go her way, she would hit me, slap my face, bite me (!) and/or scream at the top of her lungs. Isk isk. I try my best not to lose my cool with her, while praying hard that this tantrum phase will fade away soon. She doesn't act like that with her Ayah, I guess she knows he can be strict. Hehe.
  • She says, "nak" or "tu" (while pointing to something) when she wants something.
  • She would take the house keys, go to the door and makes gestures as if she's trying to open it.
  • She insists on feeding herself, meal times are messy times.



  • She LOVES Upin & Ipin. I let her watch both the English and Malay version. Don't judge ! 
  • Her newly developed 'skill' - spinning around and around while standing AND walking backwards. Hehe.
  • She wants to eat EVERYTHING we eat.
  • She would wave her index finger and says, "Nooo" to us when she knows she's doing something wrong. Haha.
  • Would sometimes take any piece of cloth, (ie. blanket, her blouse) and wipes the floor or any hard surface with it. Rajinnya anak Mummy. Hehe.

  • She rearranges our dining table chairs for us. Heck, the whole house gets a makeover these days. T___________T
  • She would pick up the house phone and says, "Ohh?".I think she means 'hello'. Hehe. She even knows what to press on my phone so that it lights up, then she'll put it to her ear and says, "Ohh?". Hehe.
  • Sometimes if she's done doing her 'business', she would come over to us, lift up her blouse, and says, "Yakk." Hahahaha.
  • On good days, she would hold out her arms and legs to help me dress her. On not-so-good days, I would have to chase her all around the room just to get her diaper on.  
  • Finally calls me, 'Mi' or 'Aaami'. But I am also 'Ayah' and 'Eyyy !'. T_________T
  • Other words she's forming are 'Nenek', 'Bik' (Ambil), 'Ayoo' (Fuyoo), Bird, Cat. Those are the ones I can remember. She makes a roaring sound when I say 'lion', which is something I taught, hehehe.
Can you believe how big my little girl is now ? She's growing up too fast ! Isk.

a sign of aging ?

At Chatime, Empire Subang.

Cashier: Hi Miss, welcome to Chatime !
Me: Hi, can I have one Mango Smoothie, please ?
Cashier: Ok, *presses buttons on screen*
Me: Em, with no sugar and less ice, please, thank you.
Cashier: Err, Miss, this is ice blended Miss.
Me: Oh yeah lah ! Okayyyyyy. *blushes*

I swear I wanted to run INTO the wall and hide from the embarrassment. Isk.

Ok bye.

1434H resolutions

I am a bit of a failure when it comes to resolutions.

There will always be a few on my list which will be left unchecked and undone.
But since I'm 28 years young this year and already a wife and a mother, I'm thinking I should set a good example to my daughter. Ahem. Hehe.
I'm gonna list down a few resolutions and make sure I strike out each & every one of them this year, InshaAllah.


Ok here goes...
This year I shall:

1. Not miss my daily prayers, and try to pray on time.
2. Try to cover my aurah properly - make sure my chest, neck, butt and arms are fully covered, buy and wear more long skirts/dresses/loose pants instead of jeans or form-fitting pants.
3. Strive to be a better wife, Mummy, daughter, sister and friend - I feel that I am lacking so much in this area, sobs !
4. Work out every day like I used to, okayyy maybe at least three times a week. Hehe.
5. Try to cook delicious food like arwah Mummy did, for my family - Until this day, I haven't found anyone who cooks as good as Mummy does. Even the dishes that she made, totally different ! Rindunya. :(
6. Keep on sharing the goodness of Shaklee with family & friends. :)

Ok let's keep it at 6 for the time being, don't want to be over-ambitious now, do we ? Hehe.

Salam Maal Hijrah 1434H everyone !
Out with the bad, in with the good ! InshaAllah. :)

transitions.

And so it has been a week since we officially moved in to the not-so-new pad we're renting in Shah Alam.
House is still incomplete & messy. (read: not ready for visitors.)
Khayla isn't having such a easy time with the new sitter.
Traveling time to and fro work is around 30 minutes. As usual, the nearer you stay, the later you arrive at work. In my case, the sitter feels that 0730 hours is the best time to drop Khayla off, so I can only leave for work after that.

My in-laws are planning to come over during the Awal Muharam public holiday, InshaAllah. Mum in-law & Angah are planning to go to IKEA to hunt for stuff for Angah's wedding. I think it would be a great idea because I can look for stuff for my house too. Hehe. And have some IKEA meatballs while I'm at it !

Last Sunday before we moved in, we went to Serai in Empire to celebrate Daddy & Mr. Sunshine's belated birthdays. I can't remember whether I've wrote about this but they share the same birth date ! Awesome tak ? Hehe.


I have no idea why I posed bongkok like that.

Birthday Man No. 1 !

Birthday Man No. 1 with his granddaughter.

(Hot) Birthday Man No. 2 !

Soon to be parents, InshaAllah. Khayla is going to have a younger cousin she can bully play with !

LOVE !

A new year is around the corner, let's take this time to reflect on how we are and how we can change for the better. InshaAllah.
