.doing this again.

my husband has always been a loyal reader here. last week he suddenly suggested that i start to write again especially now that many things have been happening in our lives. at first i thought it is going to be impossible as i am busy at work during the day and there are always things to do when i get back home and i always fall asleep with little Hayfa as i read to her or while putting her to bed. i usually lie down with her and we talk about the day or she'll listen to me 'berzikir' until she falls asleep. And i always ask Adi to wake me up in case i fall asleep so i can do some school or house work but he said i rarely wake up. i am always exhausted after a long day. we are now enjoying our lives doing lots of things together. as Hayfa is growing up and i am now in my 30th week of pregnancy, a lot has changed. apart from living our daily lives, we are now preparing for a new family member! and it is a boy! insyaAllah. well, we went for a 4D scan last two days to confirm the gender as well as doing the rest of other check ups. it was amazing to see him and my, he looks exactly like Hayfa when we had our 4D scan of her! the nose is a little bit different but the mouth and eyes and facial features are almost the same. Hayfa was thrilled to see her baby brother on the computer but still insisted that she is the 'adik' instead of 'kakak'. sometimes she is showing as if she is ready to have a sibling but most of the times she just says she doesn't want a brother or sister. i hope when the baby comes, she knows what is happening. syukur Alhamdullillah for this rezeki. i wish i could write more but i am suddenly feeling very sleepy. it is twenty past two in the morning and i really need to head for the bed. there are so many things to do before our balik kampung trip on Monday and i should get enough rest. cant really stay in the bed for so long in the morning because Hayfa is an early riser! she'll start making requests once she opens her eyes! good night. i promise i will write more tomorrow.

.packing.

re-read my previous post just now and i thought it ended really funny. but, who cares because i don't. i did said i might continue but i don't think so now. it just feels different now.

anyway, today has been a little bit productive. woke up early, made daughter banana-strawberry smoothie as requested by her as soon as we came downstairs. then prepared fried bee hoon for brunch and did the laundry too. husband came down not long after and we all hung out in front of the tv for a little while and then started sorting and packing things into the boxes and finally filling them up in the car.

I just cannot wait to move into the new place. the excitement is overwhelming. i think Hayfa is getting the idea too despite being a little bit confused of being here and there. there are heaps of things to do! blaming myself for being a hoarder now i have lots of things to organise. and moving to a way smaller house is definitely a challenge when you can't fit in most of the current furniture and other home stuffs. hence the garage sale this weekend, insyaAllah. i hope everything that i don't need will be gone. we were told by the landlord not to leave anything in the house.

it's almost 3am and i should force myself to sleep. there are still a lot more to pack and i really hope eveything will be fine tomorrow, insyaAllah.

.hey, wonderful you!.

it is the ninth of april today. won't be long until my thirty first birthday, my child's second birthday and my husband's thirty third birthday which is in early of May. Ya Allah, Alhamdullillah atas rezeki Mu, ya Allah.

as i am writing this tonight, i am missing my husband so much. we're only five minutes away (oh well, he's at my parents' old house while daughter and i are at the new house with my mum and sister. we're in the middle of moving into the new house).

okay, getting back to the story, i hate, totally hate being away from him. i know and i do agree with some people who say that being away from each other once in a while contributes to a healthy relationship. yes, in my case i couldn't agree more. In this kind of situation, it makes me look back at how we started, what we have gone through, the ups and downs, the fights, the arguments, the cuddles, the hugs and the kisses. and i will start to appreciate every single thing that we have gone through. It makes me love him more and cherish our marriage. he is truly a wonderful man, Alhamdullillah.

i may not be lavished with gold and diamonds, presents and money (not that i care) but i have all his love and time that nothing can be compared with (oh yes, sorry if it sounds cheesy to you) we spend most of our time together as a family and loving every second of it. we do things together, we make and build things together, we talk, we argue and we try our best not to go to bed angry. so far in this marriage, the longest time we're angry (or not talking) to each other is no longer than two hours. In my case, i just can't, no matter how angry i am at him sometimes, i cannot sulk for more than that. we will eventually work things out together, forgive and forget.

Oh dear, i am super sleepy now been dropping my phone on my face a couple of times, already! I might just continue tomorrow!

.some things are worth writing for.

i have left my blog for quite some time and i figured i should get back to it. i am not really into writing, but some things are worth writing for especially when i could read back and reminisce in the future. well, who knows.

Today i came back from work greeted happily by my loved ones- my husband & my child. we spent some time together chatting while i nursed my child and later watch her play with her toys and a big box i brought back for packing (yes, we're about to move into our own nest soon). As i watched her, i realised that she has grown a lot more than i remembered. she is taller & she's getting better at sentence construction! Obviously her vocabulary list has increased which most of the times amazed me and her dad. She is also getting better at playing. I love to see her talking to her stuffed friends with gestures and using variety of intonations. the best part is when she pretends one of it is her baby and nurse it happily. never knew breastfeeding could give such an impact to a litttld child.

and as i was getting ready for prayers, my heart melted to see my husband and my daughter talking to each other. such a beautiful relationship. I then told my husband that he is one lucky dad because not many daddies have the opportunity to stay at home looking after the children and spending time with them; to watch them grow to be exact. honestly, i envy every minute of it.

.that special friend i once had.

i miss the good and bad times we used to have,
and how we fill in those rough times with laughter,
i miss the day we went to the fish shop instead of to a friend's engagement ceremony because the traffic was really bad,

i miss night rides in your car listening to songs of our favourite bands,
i miss hanging out with you just to chat about the things we do on that day, and laughing at your jokes,
i miss our cheese nan moments,
i miss our sotong bakar moments and nasi goreng moments,

i miss the random bowling fun we once had,
and following you whenever you're meeting your friends,
i miss our late night conversations on the phone rambling about stupid stuffs,
i miss the days i got to hang out at your work place,

i miss the times that you were always there for me when i needed you the most - always.. anytime, anywhere,

i miss you, old friend.
i really really do.
if i could turn back time, repeating those days would be in my list.

.the past week.

Oh well, a week passed, i have approximately 5 weeks to go til the beginning of school year. The past week had been great though i could do more things. I guess it's alright since it's the beginning of the holiday, should relax more so i can sort of think of what to do in the coming weeks.

We had a long weekend, Adi was a happy man, of course- late mornings, more late night shows on the tv, more time with the family and such. Got some things sorted out especially the new house and my car. Well, the people from the kitchen cabinet shop came to do some measurements and to look at the kitchen and we got to see the house too. Alhamdullillah, it's all done i think they're waiting for the CF now. Cant wait cant wait!

Saturday was a really long day for us. We were out from morning and only came back at 10pm. Checking the new house in the morning, went to the garage in the afternoon, off to the mall to kill time while waiting for the car to be fixed, coincidently met Jet & Shef with their son, Adam, decided to have iftar together, of to TC Beach for Chatime after then home. Hayfa slept through that night. No fuss at all! She must be exhausted!

And today we just relaxed at home. Did a little bit of cleaning and i made bread pudding. No cooking today, hubs wanted to eat nasi kukus. It was a good day.

Right, im stopping with the ramblings now. Havent really planned for tomorrow yet except bringing H to the beach in the morning. It has been a while. Wanted to bring her to the pool but it's currently closed for renovation and only opening right before Hari Raya. Bummer -_-'
Got to plan more for the little kid. And yes, been cleaning my wardrobe and found some old clothes to be made into something! Feeling excited with the new project.

.quarter to 3am random writing.

as of now, i am already on my six-weeks holiday. last Friday was the last day of school for this year and we had to do lots of cleaning up and moving things around. i am working on a new role next year as an EAL teacher which means i will have my own room, will be working with other teachers and helping the EAL children in their learning process. the job description is a long list but yes, i am very excited, i wanted a new challenge.
celebrating the end of the school year, we went to KL for the weekend to do an early Hari Raya shopping as well as visiting my brother and his wife. Aly came with us to do some shopping too. we had a good but exhausting weekend. Saturday was spent at Pavillion & Lot 10 and Sunday was spent at One Utama. never in our lives we spent such long hours at the malls in a day. Alhamdullillah little daughter has been great, she enjoyed being at the malls looking at people and decorations and playing at the children's areas. there were some cranky moments but we figured they happened when she was hungry. good thing for the bento i bought last month. her lunch, snacks & dinner were all packed up! and a couple of times to the nursing rooms made her one happy baby!
