Night Wakes…

May 13, 2009

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Bint,
For the past month, it seemed that you were waking up few times in the middle of the night, despite giving you late dinner or milk. During this period marked the most Ummi had to consume coffee just to keep awake so that the normal routine was done smoothly.

So, Ummi took the initiative to visit Habib Abbas for his do’a, supplicated water and also getting an ‘azimah/t’ for you. Alhamdulillah, after the visit with Abi, Akhi, and you, with the barakah of Habib Abbas under Allah’s will, situation at night does improve. You will only wake up for milk the most twice or thrice.


When you were 6 months…

October 12, 2008

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Bunayya,

On 22 January, you turned 6 months, weighing about 7.2kg(as taken from the weiging scale of Tampines Polyclinic during your immunisation appointment). There are some areas in which you have grown.

Physical Development

-reaches out for things

-begin solid foods like yolk, watermelon and honeydew (just the juice). Able to take in little pieces of fish flesh

-drinks from sippy cup

-sits after crawling (by the practice of pushups and shakings of bums)

Social/Emotional Development

-stranger anxiety

In addition, 10 days before 7 month old, you encountered a new experience of fever, cough and runny nose. On one occasion, Ummi fed you banana and then you began crying. Ummi left you crying until you vomitted. Ummi forgotten that after food, there should not be any vigorous activity or crying event – most likely to lead to vomit. Bummer…

Before You Turned 7 months

February 22, 2008

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Dear Bint,

A day before you turned 7 months, was indeed a ‘heading’ experience/s for you. Ummi was around, but seemed that you moved faster than Ummi can react. However partly it was Ummi’s fault too! Aduh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh….

1st:Fell down from the bed

Early morning at about 7.00a+ after breastfeeding you, Ummi went to sleep unaccidentally. All I know you were crying from the side of the bed in a standing position. Alhamdulillah, you did not fall head down.

2nd: Tumble over from bath tub

Ummi had your cot in the living room too early. When Ummi left you in it to shower Akhi, you cried heartily (macam kena torture!) So I took the bath tub (not in used) and put at the toilet door with some toys in it, so you can have some playtime by yourself. Little did I notice, you tumbled over face down to the toilet when Ummi was washing ‘istinja” Akhi.

3rd: Head down to the kitchen

When Ummi was cooking in the kitchen, I saw you crawling towards the kitchen from the mattress that was placed in the living room. I was preparing Akhi’s dinner and you were so quick (barely 3 moniutes), you cried with face down at the kitchen doorway! If Ummi knew it earlier, I would have get you to crawl in the kitchen instead!

4th + 5th: Slip from standing at the table and knock the table

In the evening, when Ummi was feeding Akhi dinner (Abi was not home then), you were placed on the mattress just behind Ummi. Little did Ummi knew, you were already standing with the support of the table next to Ummi. Then heard a sound and you were crying – You slipped from your handle and your head hit upwards against the table.

They were indeed experiences that you faced that day that made Ummi’s day puzzled. They were also learning experiences for Ummi, as upon negligence, things can happen. Even when you were very near to Ummi, things can go wrong at times. Astaghfirullah!

Hello world!
