[My 8-month old]

My little boy is 8 months old! Sounds...old! Haha. 4 more months will zoom by and soon he'll be 1. Wow!

Some of his milestones include:

1.  Being able to stand up on his own with support.
2.  Drinking from a sippy cup.
3.  Saying IBU!! (My fave one kekeke)
4.  Going da-da
5.  GOing from commando crawl to a full crawl.

He keeps standing in his cot now so we had to lower it. At least now onnly his head pops up. Though it's scary sometimes when we turn around in the middle of the night and see a head popping up and crying. Lol.

I'm so proud of my boy. Soon he won't need me anymore! Sigh... (haha)

[Eid Mubarak!]

And so we celebrate the boy's first Eid with us.  It's been a long while since I've blogged - due to busy schedule and lack of inspiration. Or well, keep forgetting to get down to it even though I've had ideas.  Anyway, this Ramadan was a great one, 3 of us as a family.  I have many things to be grateful for. Firstly the hubby was very supportive. He not only bought food when I was too zonked out looking after the lil monkey to cook, he even volunteered to ease my chores even on days where I thought I could have managed. Alhamdulillah. Secondly, even though I was initially worried, my milk supply did not dwindle, at least not noticeably. In fact, the lil one seems to be even more energised instead of going to sleep after I fed him. Alhamdulillah. Thirdly, our Eid itself was an enjoyable one. I got an Arabic gorgeous long dress and lil H got a local costume to suit the theme. Next year we'll make Baba fit into the theme too heh. Alhamdulillah.

We had a simple celebration today which started out with the usual baths and wearing new clothes. Then the "Maaf Zahir Batin" part and of course receiving ang pao from Baba. Keke.  Lazed the day away - I didn't even cook! (Thank you Baba again for giving me an "off day") It was partly because one, we woke up pretty late after morning prayers and two, we had a dinner invite anyway so we would've "wasted" the effort to cook just for one meal.

All in all, this has been one of the best Eids since I've come here (as if I've had so many lol). Thank Allah for His wonderful mercies.

My lil cutie pie wishes all readers Eid Mubarak / Selamat Hari Raya!
