Open Letter To My Girl

Dear baby,

This is the first time mummy wrote a letter to her children. Even your big brother has never gotten any letter from me. Shh.. don't tell him. Pinky promise?

First of all.. I would say you're hyperactive at this point of time. That is why I can no longer have my afternoon nap. All of us here.. mummy, daddy and your big bro Syahmie are so happy, excited and we can't wait to see you!

Although the EDD for you to arrived is on 26th May, which is one day before your big brother's birthday; daddy and your big brother kept asking.. when are you going to come out from mummy's tummy. They are very the tak sabar aren't they? I know you are taking your sweet time inside mummy's tummy. Enjoying every moment of it huh? Oh, and tickling my bladder during I'm walking is not cute OK?

You're 39 weeks old now. Last week the doc said most probably you will come out soon. Me and daddy were both anxious! Daddy had took a day off last Monday when we went for checkup. Let me tell you, your daddy doesn't have the mood to work anymore. He is so ever ready to hold you in his arm, to take care of you, to love you with all his heart. He always massage my tummy, which he said 'Baby's turn for a massage' every single night! He adores and loves you so much my love. He prepared everything and wants the best for you.

As for your big brother, he will be the most protective big brother you can imagine. He scolded me for buying clothes for your cousin the other day. He said, why must I bought the clothes for your cousin and not you? At that time, I think you're just 20 weeks old baby. It's still early. When the time comes, he was the one who eager choosing clothes and other stuff for you. Let me remind you, he may do things to drive you crazy, but it's only because he love you and won't be able to get enough of you. But, deep down inside my heart, I know he will be the best big brother and will take a very good care of his baby sister.

Hope to see you soon and everything will go smoothly when the time comes.

Lots of love,

Baby's Stroller, Car Seat and Crib

At first we decided to buy these two most expensive item on our list after two months the baby comes out. But, due to the fact that both father and son excitement, they bought it without me. Sob sob. Actually, they did told me when they were at the shop. It's just that I am not there.

It's the day when both of them had their father and son moment. Watched movie - The Avengers. Place: Festival City. Mr. Fruitheart called and told me there was a baby's shop near Modernmum which we had never been to. Didn't noticed it at all. It was kiddo who told his daddy. 'Eh daddy, got another baby's shop.'

I told Mr. Fruitheart to ask for free gifts since we bought a lot from that store. We should get some discounts or free stuff right? Hehe. Oh and still under our budget. That is the most important thing.

So, enjoy the few pictures of the strollers, car seat and crib.

We bought the convertible crib for long term use. It can be adjusted to three different heights depending on the age of the baby. It can also be a daybed or toddler bed I think up until baby is 5 or 6 years old. It can also be a playpen too.

Mr Fruitheart a bit stressed


Free gifts! Like!

I will upload later the cribs picture. Since it was already in my sister's in law room, I am not that rajin to walk down the stairs. Yes, during confinement I will be staying in my sister's in law bedroom. No TV. Boo hoo hoo. Till then, tata!

Baby's Stuff - Second Round

I meant to update my blog every now and then.. however, the current condition and the feeling to type is not there. Oh, I have no idea where it went. All the passion have gone. It's not like when I was so very happy updating and always have something to tell during my wedding preparation. Ahh.. the hormone changes! Don't you agree?

So here I am after watching TV my favorite Korean drama as usual, I decided to update. I don't remember when exactly we went to buy baby's stuff for the second round. I think end of April. We went to Mothercare at KLCC. We bought some more baby's clothes, plus it's on SALE! Yay!

First round and second round stuff
Basic stuff we bought - Baby booties and mittens, towel, blanket, napkins, set of pillows and bolster, newborn disposable pampers, baby wipes, toiletries, changing mat, feeding bottle and lots of bodysuits like below. Or some would called it romper.

Yes mummy and daddy love you

Cute little small clothes!

I think we bought like ten bodysuits for baby to wear during day and for sleeping we bought the jumper. Mr. Fruitheart said, 'beli banyak nanti tak pakai'. Err.. Oh already bought it pun kan. Hehe.

This for sleeping
I kept telling myself, don't buy a lot since I don't know how big my baby is. Now baby is almost 3KG or already 3KG. We had bought variety of sizes, 0-3 months, 3 - 6 months and newborn. But the most we bought is from 0-3 months. The important thing is, I enjoyed shopping for my baby. I don't have this feeling after eight years! You know how mothers-to-be sound when they see cute things? Awww.. this is so cute! Comelnye! Aww.. pink color! Ala-ala, comelnye. The next thing your partner know, all those aww.. cute, were already on the counter waiting to be paid.

Kiddo Talks: My Mother The Senior Citizen

Sometimes we, especially women feels a bit sensitive when being told we're getting old or how we're being reminded.. "Eh, you're going to be 31 this year!" Some would replied.. "Yeah, so?".. "It's just a number." And the lists goes on.
Here's my story about how I got called "SENIOR CITIZEN" by my son. He's very naughty and loves to tease his mother.
We just came back from our groceries shopping one day. Since I can't and were not allowed to carry those heavy bags.. I just walked straight to the front door holding only two small plastic bags. When I turned back, I saw kiddo came out from the car limping while carrying few small bags.

Kiddo: Aduh, beratnya. Sakit pinggang Syamie. (Sambil tangan ke belakang badan, macam orang tua berjalan).
Me: Haa.. tu perli mama la tu.
Kiddo: Mama kan senior citizen, tak larat nak bawa barang berat.
Me: Bertuah punya anak.
The other day, he teased me when I forgot things. I was preparing his school stuff early morning as usual. I had everything put into places and suddenly I noticed that he's missing another pair of his socks. I am very sure I put in on the table just few minutes ago. I got angry out of a sudden and asked kiddo to find it. Sambil tangan mencari, mulut pun sama membebel. Mr. Fruitheart came and asked what the fuss is all about. I told him and on the spot I noticed kiddo already wore 'the missing' sock!

Senior Citizens

Me: Syamie ni kan, yang dekat kaki tu apa? Bukan stokin ke?
Kiddo: Memang la mama. Syamie dah pakai dari tadi lagi.
Me: Habis tu kenapa tak cakap dah pakai?

Hubby and I looked at each other. He smiled.

Mr. Fruitheart: Tak pe sayang, kite orang faham. You forgot things.
Kiddo: Tu la, mama ni memang senior citizen. Mama lupa.

P/S: Pasrah aku dengan keadaan masa tu!
