It’s Baby Versus Rambutan And The Fruit Won

  Little baby Aisha isn’t very interested in solid food. Usually I give her toys to play with but this evening there were a few rambutan on the table so I placed some on her table top to distract her while I tried to feed her. After several unsuccessful mouthfuls I realized that something was off….

The Baby Rolls Over At 4 Months Old

Aisha has been trying to roll over since she was 3 months old. She was doing pretty ok. Getting to one side. Luckily for her, she’s much lighter than her two old brothers who were decidedly fat 🙂 At around 4 months (I can never keep track of weeks), she’s finally strong and coordinated enough…

Gina's Place Breastfeeding Centre KL

Gina’s Place Helped Me Breastfeed Successfully

Despite my efforts, I have struggled with breastfeeding since the beginning. Ayub was bottle fed formula, and I pumped exclusively with Sulaiman. This round I was adamant about breastfeeding Aisha. Luckily I stumbled upon Gina’s Place through a friend’s Facebook testimonial, and it was the best thing that could have happened. What is Gina’s Place? Gina’s Place…

Baby Photoshoot

Jules, Prem and Hafiz bought me a 1 year membership to the Picture Company. It’s a photo studio that specializes in children and family portraits. Brought the boys there a while back. Here’s their free pic. How cute are they? Lovely babies. I love my babies.

Star Wars Entertainment

Star Wars is beyond awesome. Well, episodes IV, V and VI anyway. A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi. Did you know that the original title for the Return of the Jedi was “The Revenge of the Jedi” but weeks before the movie’s release George Lucas decided to change…

Pulang bandar

Is the opposite of balik kampung pulang bandar? I don’t know. The hubby, babies and I returned from the kampung yesterday afternoon. The jam was intense. From the usual 2 hour journey, we were stuck on the road for over 4 hours. Halfway home Sulaiman woke up and no amount of milk would calm him…

Baby seats and road trips.

It’s Raya Haji tomorrow. I thought of only going back to the hubby’s kampung next week to avoid the jam but he wants to be with his family, so we’re leaving tomorrow morning bright and early. Hopefully everything will go well. Sulaiman is not a fan of being stuck in his car seat for long periods…

Babies and Fruits

Ayub loves bananas. That boy doesn’t eat fruits or vegetables. Bananas are the only exception. He can down two in one sitting. Ohmnomnom. Once when he was close to two years old, he was eating a small banana (pisang emas), completely peeled, holding it in his little hand. He was about to take a bite, his…

Ayub loves bananas. That boy doesn’t eat fruits and vegetables. Bananas are the only exception. He can down two in one sitting. Ohmnomnom.

My babies.

It’s become impossible to get the boys to BOTH sit still long enough and look up at the same time to take a decent picture. You have to take multiple and just post them all to combine into one good shot. Sulaiman not too happy. Sulaiman looks adorable but Ayub won’t look up. Sulaiman gets…

Baby be eating.

Sulaiman hates bananas. Loves carrots. And sweet potatoes. Got constipated. Bought him prune & apple juice. Haven’t tried that yet. Pears tomorrow. Disaster case. Other days are not so messy. Some days are worse. Occasionally he refuses a single mouthful. Baby still loves booby milk best.

6 month baby jab

 Sulaiman had his 6 month check up and jab last Saturday. He’s a big big baby now 🙂 Hitting quite a number of milestones early – sitting up on his own, crawling and pulling himself up to a standing position when next to something. Doc says he’s at a developmental age of a 9 month…

6 month old baby walking!

Not really. But I put him in his walker for the first time last night. He loved it. For about 10 minutes anyway, then he got bored. Doesn’t really move. Just sort of a backward circular movement. Ayub was really excited. Helped the hubby clean the walker and told Sulaiman to sit down. Held his…

The baby in the mirror

Sulaiman gets little attention from his idol, Ayub. The odd times that Ayub looks in his direction it’s usually to scold him for touching his toys, to push him out the way of his homemade bowling alley, or to tell him to go away and sleep. So, Sulaiman found a new best friend – the…

Baby’s first meal!

Sulaiman was 6 months and 1 week old last week. So he had his first semi-solid food. Carrots! He like it. He like it a lot. He fat. So fat. Tasting, thinking, hesitating. Quite nice. Boleh tahan. I like it Mama! Drinking water for the first time too. Not such a fan… The husband took…
