“Wait, I solat first eh.”

December 30, 2009

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Bunayya,

Alhamdulillah, with the blessings of Allah, you are seen willing to solat as and when you feel like. Of course, you will join us too for the congregational solats too!

Alhamdulillah, you are able to verbalize your thoughts and feelings(most of the time), including the above phrase. You will mention that when at times Ummi or Akhi or Abi call you to carry out certain task.

May Allah make Akhi and you and your other sibling/s Muslim ummah who will always remember and love to carry out your solat fardh until you return to HIM. Ameen!


You are 11 months

July 1, 2008

Assalamu’alaikum wr. wb.,

Ya Binti,

As Ummi was beginning to write this post, you just turned 11 months old (according to Gregorian calendar). Alhamdulillah, in another month’s time, you will be 1.

Following are what you have achieved for the past month –

Physical Development

1. Taking 1-2 steps hands-off to walk

2. Despite not able to have your legs reach while sitting on the toy aeroplane, you are able to cruise around with one leg. We will upload a movie taken to Youtube to proof this.

3. Teething on almost all surfaces and equipments.

4. Bouncing (in sitting position) on the trampoline.

5. Throwing things from the cot, high chair, and while playing. Basically “mengemas”.

6. Withstanding sleepiness, able to extend to 8 hours wake up duration.

Social-Emotional Development

1. Crying when Akhi cries. This is a sign of attachment towards Akhi.

2. Refusing Abi when you needed milk.

3. Enjoying playing along with Akhi. Laughs and responses between both.

4. Crying when left alone. Sense of fear is developing in you.

5. Responding to tune of music, body swaying.

Cognitive/Intellectual Development

1. Following a 1-step instruction. e.g. “Kiss Akhi Mukhtaar”, “Zainah come”, “No”.

2. Pressing a button from the toy aeroplane for certain effect. e.g. propeller spinning.

3. Crossing over the tables to get to the play area in the brown room.

4. Relating vocabulary to simple acts and familiar objects.
