pacify me.

Last night was the forth night Khayla slept throughout the night without her soother. Syukur Alhamdulillah.
We stopped giving her the pacifier during the day since December last year but she still needed to suck on it in order to go to bed at night.
I have been thinking of ways to wean her off (her pacifier), because she is the type who would wake up in the middle of the night and cry for her pacifier.

This was the time Khayla was busy scrunching up a wedding card, but immediately dozed off once her pacifier was in her mouth. :p

On Friday night, Khayla had trouble going to bed and staying asleep as she was in pain from her two molars cutting through her gums. Poor baby couldn't even drink water without screaming. All three of us had very little sleep that night.

Mr Sunshine and I had already planned to go to Port Dickson that following Saturday so we thought hard on whether we should carry on with the plan since all three of us are exhausted and Khayla was in pain. We decided to go.
Mr. Sunshine bought a tube of teething gel from a nearby pharmacy just in case.
We brought along a thick comforter just in case the hotel didn't provide a baby cot in which they did but I thought the mattress was too hard and was a tad too small for the cot, so we decided to let Khayla sleep on the comforter.
The funny thing is, as soon as I laid the comforter on the hotel room carpet, Khayla started rolling around on it as if she knew it was her 'bed', hehe. Syukur Alhamdulillah, after a few minutes of rolling around on the comforter, she dozed off on her own, without her pacifier !
She stayed asleep throughout the night too ! I guess she loved the air conditioned room. :)

I hid her pacifier again the following night. And Alhamdulillah she slept on her own throughout the night again. :D
Khayla was cranky throughout the whole trip but she was manageable. :)
I am glad I didn't have to use the teething gel.

I did the same when we got back to Shah Alam. Khayla did wake up crying but it was because she was feeling hot (she was all sweaty). Amboi baru tidur two nights in a hotel room dah tak boleh tidur bawah kipas ! Hehe. Fortunately she didn't need her pacifier to go back to sleep. :)

Syukur Alhamdulillah.
I really hope this continues and that I can throw out her soother soon !

Next mission is to pierce her ears ! InshaAllah.

two babies and a wedding.

Hellloouuuu all !

HAVE YOU MISSED MEEE ?

If you have, here is a looong pictorial post of the recent important happenings in my life plus a little update on my darling Khayla. :)

January

Mr. Sunshine and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary by going out for a simple movie and lunch date at One Utama. :)

Alhamdulillah. I love you so much, sayang. Meh saya nyanyi sikit, "No one, no one, no onneeee, can get in the way of what I feel for youuuu !" :D
Happy Anniversary, thank you for the oven ! I promise to bake and roast more often. ;)

My best friend, Akhir, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on her birthday ! Awesome kan ? Syukur Alhamdulillah.


Qaireen Alisha is the given name. :)

February

One of my sisters in-law got married on the second day of Chinese New Year. Alhamdulillah.
2 down, 2 more to go ! Hehe. Saja nak bagi Syahieda stressed sikit, muahahaha.

The newlyweds just after their solemnization ceremony. :)


We had cute badges on the day of the reception ! I'm the KAKAK PENGANTIN okayyy. Walaupun kakak, tapi maintain muda ok. Haha.




♥ ♥ ♥

The other sister in-law and I goofing around. :D



The siblings in grey. Oh FYI, I sewed the lace on my baju kurung on my own ! *pats own back*

Mum in-law sayang !

Pengantin baru with 'pengantin sentiasa baru'. Hehe.



Mr. Sunshine drove Khayla and I to Johor Bahru where we stayed for a night. We went to Puteri Harbour Family Theme Park and Khayla absolutely enjoyed herself at the Little Big Club where she played to her heart's content and got to meet Barney, Angelina the Ballerina and Bob the Builder. She was particularly ecstatic to get to met 'Ani' (Barney !). Hehe.
I would totally recommend bringing your child(ren) there.

Hellouuu Barneyy !!

March

Mr. Sunshine and I attended a Shaklee Product Workshop last Saturday at Ayer Keroh. After listening to nutritionist, Celine Lim talk about all of the Shaklee products benefits and safety, I feel like consuming every single one. Falling more and more in love with Shaklee !

With Master Iffah Anuar. :)
With Master Shareeza. :)

My sisters in Shaklee. :) (It's so obvious that I've gained a couple of kilos in this photo, sob sob sob)

We're CERTIFIED Shaklee Independent Distributors yo ! 

And yesterday, Linn finally delivered a healthy baby boy ! I am a proud aunt and I can't believe my little brother is a father now !*happy tears*
Alhamdulillah both mother and baby are well. :)

Assalamu'alaikum world !

Awwwhh !


Khayla is 18 months now, Alhamdulillah. 
She's experimenting with a lot of new poses when we ask her to smile for the camera. Hehe.

Looks to the side and smiles.

Presses her cheeks against others and smiles.

Squashes people's cheeks with hers.
I shall call this Khayla's sexy pose, hahaha.


She is expanding her vocabulary pretty well I would say, Alhamdulillah.
She know's how to ask for water, "Nak air (pronounced as air = angin), nak nak, jom !".
Says "nanak" when she doesn't want something.
Says "akut" when she's afraid of something, will want to "wosh" her hands when they're dirty.
She's very generous with hugs and kisses. "Ag, Ag !" (hug)
Loves to "des" (dance) ! Looks for her "owel" when she needs to bathe, says, "nak uwa" when she wants to go out, says "oat" (kasut) when she wants to put own her shoes. Points to my handbag and says, 'bag, bag" before we go out or get out of the car.

Says "awuwu" when we say I love you to her. :)

A = apul (apple), awwoh (Allah)
B = ball
C = tat (cat) - she's afraid of cats.
D = dog

Can count from 1 to 3 then stops and continues with 8, stops and then, tennn ! Hehe. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera ! In a nutshell, she's quite a talker !
Alhamdulillah, it's such a blessing to see her develop and grow up so beautifully. *happy tears*
Time for a sibling ? Haha, InshaAllah, if there's rezeki. :)

Okay people, time to finish packing up parcels for my dear customers and then I must get some shut-eye.
Goodnight.
Assalamu'alaikum. :)
