Sofya is ONE

Sofya turned one last Saturday. Nope! No party. Ordered a beautiful ( and delicious!) rainbow cake to be enjoyed with the family.

We spent the morning at my uncle's kenduri. Then went to the swimming pool in the afternoon. Sofya was on duty as the poolside girl, lol! And when we collected her cake at BakesNBites, she was fast asleep. When we all sang 'Happy Birthday' she slept through it and didn't move a bone. Haha! By the time she woke up and posed with her cake, it was half gone!

To our dearest princess, mami & ayah doakan Sofya menjadi anak yg solehah, di dalam keredhaan Allah sentiasa. Moga kebahagiaan sentiasa bersamamu. Amin.

This is a super sized elephant shaped cushion.
It can be a plushie or a cushion or even a pillow.
My in-house models a.k.a kids had fun 'playing' with Ellie.
Wanna see what I mean by fun?

Here are collages of pictures taken by KC from TheLittleBigShot Photography during our recent photo shoot session.

I'd take you everywhere..go anywhere with you!

I'm in love! Madly in love..with my new bag.. the lovely Go Anywhere bag, designed by the talented Anna of Noodlehead.

I have been carrying my 2 years old+ Chic Mama Tote everywhere I go ever since Akif was about a year old and still using it now, with Sofya as it has enough space to put all Sofya's and Akif's necessaries as well as mine in. The CMT is so convenient that I do not have to carry a separate handbag.

Anyways, Sofya is turning one in a week time. And akif is 3+ already. Lately I don't carry as much stuff as I do few months back. So I decided that it was time to make myself a new bag. And here it is...

Don't you just love it? Hehehe.'s ok if you don't. Cause I DO! and very much too! ;)

I'm happy that I can once again carry a 'normal handbag' though it still looks very much like a mama bag if you take a peek on the inside - Fits 2pcs of diapers, a travel size wet wipes, a change of clothes, a sippy cup, and even a small tupperware of my cik kak's snacks! On top of that, i have my purse, my phone, my vanity pouch thrown inside the bag as well. Not to mentioned I can even carry my 7" tablet inside the back pocket. You think I'm kidding? You gotta own one to believe. Macam poket Doraemon!

P/s - Want one? This superb bag is now open for custom orders. On special offer too for March 2013. Check it our here --->>>

7, eight, 9, ten,11...Hmm.. let's just fast forward everything to February 2013 shall we

Whooooaaaa..I'm wayyy behind!

My cik kak is now 11 and a half months old! Still hairless, toothless but can stand still without support for like half a minute and have started to take baby steps. She loves to eat (she will go to anyone she sees chewing haha!) and very good at imitating. But one thing I can say about her is that she's a very manja girl  (and a garang one too. Shhhh!).

Kimi is in standard four now (Wow! Time really flies!). Hafiy who turned 6 last January goes to a new kindy this year. Akif and Sofya stays with mommy and become mommy's little helper . Erkkk...yayy? Lol!

My sister got married early this month. Alhamdulillah, everything went well. I was the 'event manager' for that meaningful I'm sure you can imagine how hectic life was for me few weeks back.
Nevertheless, I still make time to sew for my cik kak. Her attire for the whole event was fully sponsored by Itsy Doodles hehe. (In return she has to agree to model for Itsy Doodles) *big grin*

So..these are what I sewn for her...

Everyday Play Dress for majlis akad nikah (solemnization)

May Dress (square neck) reception on our side (bride's)

Tinkerbell top (shirred sleeves & waist), Skirt and a new hat

For the time being..I think Sofya has more than enough dress to wear. So I guess I won't be sewing her anything anytime soon. *I hope I can refrain. LOL!*

Wedding, Birthday and Quarantined!

Wedding..... My cousin Adil got married to his sweetheart Nadiah end of August. The reception on our family side took place early in September. It was held at the Putrajaya Wetland. The whole thing was beautiful..the day itself, the place, the set up, espcially the bride and groom.

To the bride & groom. Though this entry came two months late, if by any chance any one of you is reading this, we wish you two a happy and blessed marriage here and till the hereafter, insyaAllah.

Birthday... Akif, my busuk masam turned 3 on 25th September. Here is a picture of me & him during last raya. From a very quiet boy, he has now become very chatty... ever since he become a big brother. A very loving and protective brother towards his baby sister. The same with my other children, in my heart, I know he is gong to be a great son, brother, person. Mami and Ayah prays only the best for you dear...

Quarantined... Two weeks after the wedding, Sofya was down with chicken pox. Kimi and Hafiy are already immune. Both had theirs in 2008. Alhamdulillah, Sofya had a mild one. Most came out either on her face or inside her diaper area. Still it took about two weeks for all to dried up. She (and me, of course!) were quarantined for two weeks. I had mentally prepared myself to take care of two chicken pox babies in case Akif got infected too. Made him drinks Air Kelapa but nothing came out.

And when all Sofya's spots have cleared, and I was about to celebrate my 'freedom', Hubs spotted one teenie tiny spot on Akif's foot. And we were all quarantined again, for another two weeks. Anyway, I'm glad it is all over now. Chicken pox is after all a childhood disease. Since they are very young, scars disappear fast. Today, about a month after..the spots you see in the pic below are now hardly visible.

Quick update on Sofya:-
Weighs 7.3 kg at 6 months. She was introduced to solid at 6 months 3 weeks. Her 1st solid food was plain rice porridge. Loves exploring and manage to get herself 'far' by slithering on her stomach. She's a very determine girl!

And last..( yes..I'm cramping all in one post hehehe)'s Itsy Doodles new label. Clean and simple. And I love it very much. Thank you to Aiya from Insang Pari, who was very patience with my 'cerewetness' on the design so that I get exactly what I want and how I want it with my label.

Birthday and Raya in August

Yess..I'm still a little behind with my posts. Still on one-week-one-post on what took place during the months my blog were left untouched hehe. This post covers August happenings. So one more post (on September), then I'll be on track (if I don't get side tracked ;).

Celebrated my thirty fourth birthday in August.  I'm thankful and blessed with everything I, family, everything! Wishing I'm given more & more blessed moments like the ones I had for many many more years to come. And that day by day I'll be a better person - daughter, wife,mother, friend but most importantly, a better 'abd, insyaAllah.

Raya Aidilfitri came about a week after my birthday. We had a very simple and fulfilling Ramadan this year,Alhamdulillah. Hafiy 'puasa' (fast) for the first time but only made it till noon. At 5 years old, he still doesn't understand the concept of fasting  . He fasted so that he can 'berbuka' .He thought, if he doesn't fast, he cannot eat 'dinner'. Cute eh? hehe

Sewed my kids' baju raya and this time it's 3+1! Three raya tunics for the boys and a simple dress for cik kak.

Set a countdown for the whole process so that I could finish them on time (before raya, that is). Recorded my progress of the whole baju raya making process on Itsy Doodles's page. Managed to complete all four in 7 days.

And lastly..a quick update on Sofya at 5 months..

Weighs 6.9 kg, chuckles and laughed a lot, can roll on her tummy and back. Bought her first crinkle cloth book. But instead of read, she binged on them! Still not over those itchy gums i guess :)
