We are definitely not an epitome of a perfect couple you've seen or read from any cheesy love story. We're not perfect but our imperfection perfects each other in so many ways & I'm so glad that our relationship as a Husband & Wife is so relax that we are like best friends & are so open to each other
I know A.H reads my blog, so here goes my Love Letter to him (walaupun dah publish kat IG dah pung. Lols! Ni edited & long version punya)
Dear A.H, my beloved Husband
Tqvm Love for everything you've done & sacrificed for the past 2 amazing & wonderful years. It feels like just yesterday when I had your first hallo on my Fb Messenger on 11/01/2014. Our marriage has been filled with some ups & downs but Alhamdulillah, we've made it through. I've to admit that you're definitely cooler than me in tackling many things & problems that we had faced together & I'm thankful for that. Can't imagine us being gelabah over the same thing because that would be uncool man!
However, my lawyer-ing skill does come handy in some situations *ahem*
I always told you (although not directly) of how proud I am for having you as my Husband. You're not only my spouse but also my Imam, best friend, joker, personal doctor, financial advisor, biggest critic, counselor but also kawan jalan-jalan & makan. Despite your busy work schedule & being zonked out, you're always there to cheer me up & make me feel loved & appreciated. Not a day passed by without me laugh at your jokes & antics. You can hear even my quietest cry & always know how to calm me down & make me feel so much better. I know I can be hard at times especially with these pregnancy hormones around but you never made me feel ignored or raised your voice at me
I shall thank Mak for raising up such a good son. She's done a good job! Hehe! Eh Ayah pun ada share jugak. I know you're forever Mak's favourite son & I know you've missed her so much since you moved to K.Bharu a year & a half ago. Sebab tu malam-malam tido guna selimut yang Mak jahit when you were in kindergarten tu kan? Sorry Baby! Don't worry, I won't sorok your purple selimut busuk walaupun rasa gerammmm je nak sorok. Lols!
As I'm entering my 3rd trimester tomorrow, we're almost there to become Parents. InsyaAllah. I''ve seen how you treat my nephew & niece; the love is genuine & the kids love you too so much. No doubt that you'll be a good parent to our child(ren), probably cooler than me. Please don't love me less when our child is born because Little I & I; each of us are special in our own ways T_T
I pray may Allah swt grant you your desired dreams & success in this world & jannah in the Hereafter for all your kindness & efforts in making me a happy Wife. May He ease our parenting affairs (OMG lagi 12 weeks nak deliver OMG!), give you the best of health & may our love last till jannah. Amin ya rabbal alamin.
Speaking of jannah, I want to be your wife in jannah too please? Nobody can share my A.H with me! Only me! T_T
Looking forward for more wedding anniversaries & other happy things to celebrate with you, Baby! InsyaAllah ♥
Oh btw, what did we do on our 2nd anniversary? Nothing much, just took flights KB - KL - KB within 33 hours as A.H had a job interview at one of the IPTAs as the medical officer. He did great on the 1st stage of the interview, was shortlisted for the 2nd one but unfortunately had to decline due to his JPA bond. Kesian A.H. Tak ape lah. InsyaAllah ada rezeki lain
A.H & I have an announcement to make! *clears throat*
Yes, our Little I's a baby girl not a baby boy as we had thought before. Kesian dia kecik-kecik dah confused
So, what had happened to the previous 2D scans that we had which made us
utterly confidence that we're expecting a baby boy? We also don't know. Lols!
Her gender was confirmed when we had a 4D scan on 04/03/2017 when I was 27w1d pregnant. Little I was sleeping at that time, slightly covering her face, but not her genital. Right when the Dr told us about Little I's gender while moving around that scan thingy on my belly, I had a little OMG! moment thinking about some blue & baby boy's stuff that we had bought
earlier. Blue milk bottles, blue rattle, blue rompers/baby suits etc,
A.H's reaction? He was sitting next to me at that time & unlike me, his coolness was intact & he clearly had no OMG! moment #coolparent #unlikethemother
Some of Little I's stuff. So, more reasons to shop more? For pink baby stuff I mean
About an hour & a half before we had an appointment at the clinic at 8 PM, A.H & I went to Aeon Mall KB. We went to H&M when he saw this Cookie Monster set; a baby romper, a pant & a beanie hanging on the highest rack which won't be noticed by orang yang berketinggian rendah macam sis. The moment when A.H showed me this cute set, my jaw literally dropped on the floor, my heart was beating faster & I was so excited! In my mind I already went "Auwww! My baby boy must be sooooo cute donning these! Auww! ♥"
H&M Aeon Mall KB
Only to be confirmed later that it's a baby girl. Lols!
It's okay. Baby girl pun boleh pakai what? And Alhamdulillah, Little I's growth is according to the chart; she's healthy, alive & kicking! ♥ Her last week's weight at 27w1d was 941g
The beginning of more Cookie Monster/Sesame Street stuff in the future! ♥
A.H & I went to the Kid & Baby Fair held in KTC, Kota Bharu last Friday, 17/02/2017. Being the inexperienced parents we are, of course we are not an expert in that baby department & it felt like a dream being in a hall surrounded by married, expecting couples with crying, running & screaming kid(s) in tow!
Woww! Finally, we're among the crowd now. Hehe! Sebelum ni kalau jalan-jalan masuk baby or kid department, survey or beli barang for our nephew & niece je
The Mother has started pestering me to start buying the baby stuff since
I was 4 month pregnant & I thought "Meh! Awal lagi kot? Chill Ma chill!"
It was just a few weeks ago that we've started asking around seriously for opinions & views on what to buy, what's good, what's better, what's (more) important & other questions regarding the baby checklist. What we had read & heard were true. Memang banyak duit spent, tak padan barang kecik haluih size xxs kan? But InsyaAllah, every child has his/her own rizq
Buying the first batch of Little I's clothes (dengan disertai baju untuk Abam Umar & YamYam sekali)
Whilst I'm trying to give our future child an image of a cool & fun kid, A.H may have opinions different than mine at times. Like when I like cat print, he prefers zebra. Maka haruslah berkompromi oleh kerana masing-masing have a fair share of contribution during the child making process. Lolololol!
Anyway, we missed some items from the list & had seen that coming anyway. Hehe! Maka the next day, 18/02/2017 we visited the Fair again & made the booth owners a few RM richer
We still have a few items unticked from the list though which we hope to complete during our balik kampung trip to KL in the early March. I'll be 7 month plus pregnant at that time & don't think that I'll be able to make another balik kampung trip during my 3rd trimester or when it's getting nearer to my EDD on 02/06 (InsyaAllah)
Honestly, 7 hour journey from KB - KL - KB is no joke especially when you're carrying extra weight on your belly. The cramp & lenguh-lenguh can be very torturing campur dengan sakit badan all over the body. Huhu! But cannotla selfish juga kan? Little I is going to be the first grandchild in A.H's family & A.H of course wants to share his excitement with his Family, especially his Mother. Dah la lately tak selalu balik (unlike before, every 2 or 3 weeks balik), so kita bagi semua orang happy! ♥
And hopefully, during the next balik kampung trip, sempatlah mek makan kat Wong Solo. I've been craving for it since my early days of pregnancy. Even before pregnant pun memang craving sokmo Ayam Penyet Wong Solo. Haih! I miss you, you know spicy sambal, jus melon & emping?
Btw, can you guess the gender of our Little I from these sets? :)
Dear Little I, I would like to offer a sincere apology that there's a high possibility that your future nursery will be of boring pale colours. Uh oh!
Assalamualaikum & hallo!
I think my nesting-mode has begun & being a big fan of interior design I'm (hence the acah-acah deco tag in this blog), of course I want to do some makeover to our bedroom at home. Like right now! Can't we have the room ready as soon as possible because this excited mommy to be is so itchy to do some diy projects & decorate the room, pretty please?
Oh, we're go to co-sleep with our future child btw. Will train him/her to sleep in his own bassinet & coat as early as possible untuk keselamatan & kesejahteraan bersama
While some parents love to decorate the room with some bright colourful colours with some fun themes like jungle & zoo theme etc, I'll we'll stick to our all time favourite colours yakni black, white & grey. Tak lari banyak la from our current bedroom theme colours
Anyhow, we still have 2 major items unticked from the list:-
A simple cot will do but I prefer the one with wheels sebab senang nak move around kan? We saw the exact coat as IKEA Hensvik at Aeon Mall the other day. It's from Sweet Cherry brand; grey, sturdy, affordable & the most important thing, it has wheels! Not bad. Might consider it as well
Our wardrobes can no longer accept any additional batch(es) of clothes. So, a baby chest/drawer is a must. Plus nampak organize sikit kan? I also love IKEA Hemnes (like the one in the first photo from your left) but don't think spending RM1299 on the chest alone is one good idea. Baik beli proper wardrobe terus
Yang lain-lain macam bumper pad, quilt cover, bed canopy, stuffed toys, wall deco etc, boleh add on from time to time rasanya. InsyaAllah
