She did it by herself!

Two days ago, I fed Aisyah as usual in the afternoon. What surprised me was, she took the spoon from my hand and tried to feed herself with it. To encourage her, I let go of the spoon. She took the spoon, dug out her porridge from the bowl that i was holding and put it inside her mouth. Yeah!!! I let her do the new activity (as Aisyah believed it was) for a couple of minutes.

Nothing excites me more than seeing Aisyah feed herself and enjoying it!

Later, the following morning, as I was combing her curly hair after bath, again, she wanted to do the new activity by herself. I let go of the comb, she took it and then she brushed her hair with it. Glad to have seen her do it!

Aisyah is still breastfeeding by the way. Thank you Allah!

I have started working a month ago at SMK Taman Fajar as their English teacher. I am teaching the whole form 1 classes except form 1E. I am also in-charged in teaching the 3D &3E's English failure.

Work is ok since i am very passionate on the profession, but worries me a lota t teh time being is Aisyah. Though she is adapting so well when I am not around at home, but deep inside, I am quite sad to leave her at home when I had never actually left her in my months with her before I started working.

Aisyah is still breastfeeding. Only when I'm at school she will get her water and porridge to relieve her hunger. We had tried so many times in giving her the formulas but she refused it. Luckily, I am working in the afternoon session which means, I have 6 hours in the morning to be with her, to feed and to breastfeed. Even better, the school is just 5 minutes away from my mum's place. All in all, Aisyah is left without milk for 6 hours... hmmm...

That's all for now,..

Aisyah is 10 month now

Salam Ramdhan to all..

Aisyah is 10 month 1 week now. How time flies... hmmm

Aisyah has started walking a month ago. Now, she is learning how to run with her small beautiful steps.. Alhamdulillah..Some neighbours were impressed with Aisyah's development. They believe Aisyah is way too fast to be able to walk on her own at her age. When asked, I told them; "Bapa Aisyah dan saya, tidak belikan dia baby walker. Mungkin sebab tu dia cepat. Waktu dia sdh boleh buat small steps, kami galakkan dia naik tangga dengan pemerhatian orang dewasa, of course. Sekarang ni Aisyah tangah belajar berlari pulak. Caranya very simple. We run all over the house. Kadang2  malu jugak kalau jiran nampak bermain macam budak2, but as mother, it's the best way to teach our own child'..

As for her speech development, Aisyah memang quite a chatter box. If I scold her cousins, dia pun ikut2 juga marah. When I looked down at her, memang funny to see her that way. But I don't mind, mungkin she's trying to imitate me. Even when grown-ups at home conversed, she'll be joining in. She talks and talks and talks.

As for her reading development, her favorite books are Mimi The Mouse and What Time Is It Peter Rabbit? Every day I read it for her without fail. Glad that she is into books.

Apart from that, she is also very much into watching Baby Tv on channel 618. Her favorites are; Charlie & The Numbers, The Mice Builders, Hokey Pokey Dance, Where is Grandpa, The Birthday song, Lily & Pepper, Emma's Theatre, Kenny & Gorie and Popiz. Well, she loves the others as well but not as much as these. When her faves showed, she dances to the music.. hahahaha

Hmmmm... what else ah? Oh yeah, she is into spiritual fave as well. She can't sleep without we playing her the three MUST SURAH to play on; surah Al-Baqarah, Yaasin, Ar-Rahman. Hopefully she'll memorize it subcontiously, Amin..

As a mother I'm glad taht Aisyah has turned up to be a beautiful girl inside and out. May Allah always protect her and May all good, wonderful and happy things come to her everyday without fail. And may all that come and see her, will love her tenderly.
