(6 May 2017) The arrival of our 3rd princess

Before we update 2016 events, (Yes I know, I am THAT slow. I had been busy!) here’s some pix of our 3rd precious princess. She came as a pleasant surprise, and we are delighted to have her complete our family, now a family of FIVE. Syukur Alhamdulillah.

Pregnancy was tough. Juggling 2 toddlers, household chores, work, it was crazy but this is life.

At 37 weeks, went for the final appointment to see Dr JM Lee (Yes, I love her), I was already 5cm dilated. At midnight, I had already been having 5min apart contractions for hours. Checked in Kakak Daniya & Dahlia with Granny and Atok, (they transferred the kids to Mummy Yani) then checked in to the Delivery Suite. Bismillah. At 10am, after some intense pushing, our princess arrived.

Our dear baby Hifza Dalilah, may you grow up to be a Solehah Muslimah, who will be kind and gentle, who will be intelligent in both Dunyawi and Ukhrawi. And be protected from Djinn, Syaitan and the evil eye. InshaaAllah.

(Aug 2015) Haifa turns 2!

Haifa Daniya – 2yr

Hilya Dahlia – 4mth

Time past by too fast. Where did the 2yrs go? Now she can communicate so well, throw tantrums, make funny jokes, laugh heartily, expresses her love.. Haifa is a bundle of joy. Forever our baby.. We love you too much. Celebrated her birthday in school in conjunction with National Day celebration.

Also celebrated Rani’s birthday, we tried to recreate an old pic, and it wasn’t easy, trying to sync 3 babies to look at the camera!

Sent off Ayie at the airport, he will stay at Bekasi, Jakarta from now on, and inshaaAllah Duta will open up a branch office there.

(May 2015) Hilya Dahlia’s 1st month

It’s been such a hectic month. Having 2 kids was definitely a challenge. Confinement was at Granny’s. Sometimes I had to disappear into the room to nurse Hilya, and had to leave Haifa in the living room under a family member’s watch. I could not be there for Haifa 24/7 anymore and I felt guilty. I was so used to doing activities with her, be it colouring, cutting/pasting, playing toys.. But Haifa was being quite an understanding big sister. She did not demand attention from me when I needed to tend to the baby. She had matured faster on her own..

Hilya’s Cukur Jambul was done at Masjid Darul Aman. A small and simple affair. In just 1mth, her facial features had changed.. She gained weight quite fast, even though I was exclusively breastfeeding her.  In many  ways, she reminds us of her kakak Haifa, but of course, she is Unique.
