winter kate by nicole richie


I've always a fan of Nicole. She's petite and cute as a button. Winter Kate is Nicole's clothing line that reflect her own personal style ; feminine, hippie, bohemian etc

After seeing Winter Kate's collection, gave me a courage to consider different hues to my wardrobe. - other than pink, and pink..pink lagi!..heee sayang pink. OK FINE.  These are some of her collection, and I like them!


somewhat lilac..love the fabric motif

oh yellow..


green! this one known as Nicole Kimono..cool =)




She's petite, I think we have the same height but I can't be confident to wear such =(  HELP!
Can you believe she's mother of two? She's absolutely an idol.



I (suddenly) want to try on tribal jewelry hihi

Ok last but not least..
My favorite picture of her and her son Harlow

oh la la.. 
 


NAK JUGAK GAMBAR MACAM NI

my confinement man

I have like 3 or 4 heavy meals (nasik!) a day, and milo-biscuit in between. I'm always hungry, and I'm always hungry. Pity me, there are list of foods I should avoid. Yes confinement period is a challenge for hungry monster like me.

I remember I wrote about the confinement service, the one with massage and food package. We didn't hire them. But I must say that I'm very lucky to have my own confinement man, during his one month (of working)  leave dedicated for taking care of me and our baby. 

I haven't told about my frustration with my milk production, have I? It was the very first week of my baby arrival and my milk supply wasn't keeping up with the feeds. I almost surrender to formula milk, what a fool! It was him who made me keep believing in milk demand-supply,  and that brought me out from constant worry. Alhamdulillah, several tries on breast pump helped stimulate my milk production. And I'm now a happy breastfeeding mother!

kemas plus marinated!

I must admit, he is good with chores ; washing, cleaning, mopping, do groceries.. but I seriously doubt he could handle the kitchen work. He cooked everyday without fail, and it turned out to be the most delish home cooking I ever taste. Must be the love in every spices =)




Previously done by him, yesterday was my first experience of bathing baby. I must learn more from him , hey bathing baby ..eh even changing diapers could be a challenge sometimes when baby gets cranky =)


 sayang daddy

He has started his work yesterday, and I miss him around. 
Of all those I thank you, hubby !

redemption of ramadhan



Sorry for my lack of update, hee it's just a sign of how much time I'm occupied with si kecik ni ..

I still haven't given a chance (just yet!) to perform puasa. It's the 13th Ramadhan and it wouldn't be nice to have like a calender to tell me how much days do I need to qada' puasa T_T .Unlike previous years, my period cycle was always on my side..selalu puasa Ramadhan penuh.

Hmm..13 days and counting.  

Selamat Berpuasa! And to all breastfeeding mothers, you're the greatest!

Seriously I don't have clothes to wear.

and now it's even sooner.

oh hari ini, jangan lah cepat berlalu.


runaway train never going back

I'm 28 years old

I turn 28 today. Thank you Allah.
My Aariz is the best birthday gift ever,
Alhamdulillah.

baby smells so delicious ( i wanna bite! )


One of the signs that your baby loves you is when he stares into your eyes. And yes he does! quite often too =) According to babycentre.com, a baby is working hard to memorise mummy face. He doesn't understand anything else about the world but he knows mummy's important. How sweet is that?



Mommy, when can I get my hair back? I don't wanna be Castello.


 Aariz likes to watch tv. I guess it must be object yang bergerak2, so dia konfius? Tapi sekejap ja la..and fall asleep minutes after.


Mommy, I think I saw a pink bunny


yes you did.

seriously??

dah nak puasa?
hmm..rasa macam baru ja tiba di KK airport untuk balik beraya (tahun lepas!)






hokey!
tak tahu lah berapa hari saja boleh puasa Ramadhan ini.

Aariz : the birth story

Apologies for my late post of Aariz birth story and thanks so much for all of your comments =) Hayoo it's the best challenge to calm and sooth cranky Aariz, but he knows how to tackle me with his smile =) Ok baby, now your demand is my command!

I've been thinking to post this entry ever since I was discharged but there's no way I could be glued again to this computer. Anyhow, before the memory starts sinking I better write down about it.


19 July 5pm

We went to clinic for my weekly check up. I told my doctor that there are bloody show with some mucus. It was 3 days away to my EDD, so the doctor performed the dilation check. I fear the dilation check, if only you know how the process is! - Index and middle fingers underneath ... TWO fingers fgs! and she twisted them to stimulate the dilation. And to my surprise I was 2 cm dilated!

So I was wondering 2 fingers for 2cm, and how many fingers can fit in there? 10 fingers for 10 cm? haha so lame!

I was advised to go home. But I asked hubby for new curtain, an idea that came out of nowhere =D Must be last minit punya mengidam! So off we went to Nilai 3..sabar je la kan?


20 July

5am

I wasn't sure if it was the real contration. The pain was very mild, like food poisoning. I began to examine the pain timer..it came regularly about 2 minutes and this time I knew it was the 'real alarm' omg.

6am

Hubby puts on the TENS machine. I lay down on my bed, practicing the breathing technique. I guess the machine helped me a lot that I could stand the pain until we reached the hospital.

9 am-11am

I was already in the labour room. The first thing I told the nurses was that I don't want any drip, because the needles and tubes would only distract my attention. cheh! I texted everyone; my sisters, parent, aunties, friends (sempat!) and ayah was so emotional he even cried hehe

The midwife performed the dilation check and it was very surprising that I was already 7cm dilated..fuyoo! 7cm dilation with mild contraction, it must be the TENS machine!

My doctor came and congratulated me for not taking any epidural or whatsoever..sempat pula tu rasa bangga =D Everyone (nurses and midwife) was like ' hey is this machine makes you very strong?'

But I regret that I made my own assumption that the TENS machine would disturb the baby heartbeat machine monitor. I put off the TENS machine and in just a few minutes I felt the pain was so unbearable.. I didn't scream, but engaging the pain with breathing technique, and hubby kept massaging my back...bagi minum air selusuh dan sapu kat ubun2.

The nurses came and emptied my bladder with a small tube and again performed the dilation check. I hate these two processes. How I wish someone could invent for ' mesin pengimbas bukaan' haha.

12 - 2 ish pm

ALL THE PAIN IN THIS WORLD ! I've gone crazy and yes I screamed a bit, I hold his hand tightly macam boleh je patah..pulling his cloths ..sakit gila, sabar je abang melayan. And yes I knew I looked like mad woman - long hair is definately not for labour room!

I secretly tried to push..sabar je la, because it was really hard not to push! My in law was there too, and I asked the nurse for any painkiller. And at last I got one jab and hubby put the TENS machine on my back again. But they didn't kill the pain!

About 230pm a midwife came to me and she was very surprised that my bladder should be emptied again but no one did so!" kalau tak pukul 12 pm tadi lagi kamu dah beranak"..haaaa?? sedih!

Immediately after my bladder was emptied, the nurses began to set up the 'real' labour room..they tied both my legs, the doctor came and instructed me to push harder. I saw a scissor!

The doctor must've done some cutting down there but I hardly felt it as I continued pushing, because only pushing could ease the pain! I took a long breath like I'll never breath again and push harder, and the second attempt Aariz came out!

"Alhamdulillah..alhamdulillah..terima kasih doctor" can't believe it was so dramatic. The doctor asked my husband if he wanted to take any picture.. haaa, tak kuasa nak tangkap2 gambar tengah sakit ni.

I was very exhausted that with one injection I fall asleep and only woke up at 6pm, so I escape the stitching pain hehe.

Aariz Afzal Muhammad was born at 2:43pm and weighs 3.45kg. Alhamdulillah. Thanks for coming into our life. We love you.

Aariz first outstation

The Daddy has to attend some work, and the Mummy wanted to tag along. I'm still in my confinement period (the 14th day btw) but, hey.. I need to go out.

So for a record, Melaka is Aariz very first outstation =)

my sleeping beauty

InsyAllah I'll fully BF him. I believe in its goodness .. Aariz was suspected for jaundice on his 2nd day, malam tu sumbat susu banyak gila and alhamdulillah the next day Aariz dah ok.


he got my smile..alolo

And as for me, walaupun 3 kali sehari makan nasi I've already lost 10 kgs! It must be BF kan? BF memang cepat lapar, I makan Oreo sebungkus one go je hehe



ouh yes! We went to Philea Resort Ayer Keroh yang sangat cool, believe me. Tak sempat snap banyak gambar but you can google it yourself.



Ok la nak join my boys tidur! I know I owe you Aariz birth story..drama! later..
