My Little Princess

When i decided to conceive, i really hope that i will get a baby girl. I was so jelous with my friends who has a daughther, which means they can buy a lot of sweet, pinky and flowery clothes and accessorice for their little girl. So when my son, Muqri celebrated his 2nd birthday, i told my husband that i'm ready for the second child!

23rd Aug 2005, is the happiest day in my life. Finally, i got what i want...a chubby and sweet baby girl. I named her: Zara Damia, means the light of truthness and intelligent. Her hair was so thick, got a chubby face but look so soft and girly. I cannot wait to bring her home because the whole family was waiting, especially Muqri.

Zara loves to be held, caressed, kissed, stroked, massaged, and carried. He may even make an "ah" sound when she hears my voice or sees my face, and she'll be eager to find me once she hear my voice. Yes, she's dependent on me for love, care, and feeding and i will try to give my best to all her need, since the only way she knows to communicate is by crying. But I learnt that I can communicate with her through my voice and my touch.

Now, she is 5 month already. She is on the rolling stage..roll...roll...roll..and again. She start crying when i leave the room or the nuersery and she get excited when she saw me come back. She will laugh when me or her brother make a silly face or funny sound. She loves watching television with her brother, and now, likes to grab anything that Muqri have in his hand (a sign that whatever my brother have, i should get one!!)

One more, she now are more alert on sound. She realizes where sound come from and she will quickly turn to that direction. She loves wind chimes (come from my neighbour;s house) and seems like i have to get one. Oh...she also recognize her name and will response when i talk to her. I also notice that she will turns his head when i call her or talk about her with my hubby.

So the only way to entertain her at this stage is talk and sing to her. One her favorite song is 'the itsy-bitsy spider' (yeah...i master with it).Argh...she love books too and her brothers' toys (superman, spiderman, cars, trucks etc). Hopefully whe she grows up, whe will loves barbie doll more than cars and ultraman).
Yeah.. her hair is long and so thick. I even can tie it and use the hair clip, i am thinking to cut it, since she always scratch her hair. Maybe this is not the suitable time to keep her hair.
Well, there is a lots of things to share but the most important things that i learn as a mother is every babies and kids are unique and special. They have their own development and meet milestones at their own pace. You cannot compare your kids with other kids, since they are different, and they are an individual!

My Little Chatterbox

My son, Muhammad Muqri is 3-year-old now.No more games of charades to decipher what he wants. No more confusing in order to received and response on his 'never-understanding' language he use.
Thanks to his improved diction and amazing grasp of grammar, so that I should be able to understand more than three-fourths of what he's saying now.

He uses longer sentences (three or more words) and a growing vocabulary (300 to 1,000 words — too many for you to count) to make himself understood.His question became more complete, longer and non-stop. And his request also became more complicated and details, and that's means i have to hear and understand what he need, also have to explain more details if that request cannot be fulfill. The reason should be reasonable, and the way to response to his need must be polite and in a good manner.
My talkative budding conversationalist loves to talk and sing. Doctor said that lengthy verbal turn-taking is a hallmark of this age. He'll be able to answer simple questions and also ask questions of his own. Sometime he cares less about the answer than keeping the conversation going. He'll begin to describe what he's seeing or doing and is starting to use words to reason things out. I noticed that he is using more adjectives (the big red car) and correct verb tenses, adding "s" and "ing" when necessary. He may still have trouble producing some sounds, especially r, l, s, and th.

Argh...one more, he has a beloved pillow (handmade by my mother), and he will asked about it when his about to going to sleep, no matter where it is. I had to retrieve it from afar more than once. Sometimes it was left at Grandma's and I had to fetch it in the middle of the night.It always made me wondering when the jig will be up. But FINALLY I got a good advice-Whatever you do — don't do anything! Children let go of security objects at different ages. Some may be ready when they start preschool; some like to carry theirs to preschool in their backpack and leave it in their cubby by day. Others continue to sleep with a special pal well into elementary school and beyond. Most children wean themselves eventually.

To avoid losing a lovey, if you haven't already, establish some rules about where the blankie or bear can and can't go. For 3-year-olds who once had unrestricted limits on where to bring a lovey, make new "big kid" rules. If it never leaves the house, it's a lot easier to find. Obviously, doctor's appointments and vacations are reasonable exceptions. (By 3, a child's chosen object is usually so well-loved and tattered it may be too late to try the ol' buy-a-replacement). Well, i think this is a good advice because it worked!! (thanks to www.babycenter.com).

Whatever it is, he is a sweet and good son. yes, sometimes he is naughty but he is a kid, and it is up to me. I pray to Allah, may all the kindness will be in his heart forever.














The Miracle of Quran


An old American Muslim lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Qur'an. His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could. One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Qur'an just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Qur'an do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied,"Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water. "The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water.You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would Leak out before he got back to the house.The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty. Out of breath, he said, "See Grandpa, it's useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said,"Look at the basket."The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out."Son, that's what happens when you read the Qur'an. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Allah in our lives"
