HAFIY, FAHRY & DANNY

Back in Shape

ramai kawan2 Mami tanye "makan ape cepat turun berat?" "jamu ape ko makan?" "apsal body ko tak naik?"etc. - jawapannya tidak makan sebarang weight loss product - detail di bawah.

dan soalan2 berupa "semangatnya baby..mesti kuat minum ni" "baby kuat minum kan? tgk badan.. semangat" etc. -jawapannya tidak kuat langsung.

alhamdulillah. Mami sihat2 sepanjang pregantkan Hafiy. walaupun mabuk teruk tak bole makan nasik selama hampir 5 bulan tapi biasa la tu. nama pun pregnant. sapa suruh kan. sepanjang pregnant BP Mami maintain je, urine pun maintain je. sakit2 pinggang pun masa dah masuk 8 bulan. (sebab UTI?).

masa mula2 pregnant, Auntie Cherie rekemen Mami makan supplement. Shaklee nama dia. supplement from natural resources. mula2 Mami macam skeptikal. ye la, ape hal.. sebelum ni tak pernah2 makan supplement. sekali Auntie Cherie bagi explaination & dipromosikan babynya si Faiz yang tembam gedempol itu, Mami rasa teruja. Mami lalu amik b-complex (with high folic acid), Vita Lea (multivitamin) dan Soy Protein - berubah mengikut keperluan bulan2. di hospital cek up tu doktor xbagi segala mendalah acid folic ke obimin ke segala, kena beli sendiri sbb ING tak cover. so alang2 kena beli sendiri ni, beli la yang berkualiti tinggi kan.

mula2 Mami dieksplain oleh Auntie Ann. dia mmg sgt loyal dgn Shaklee sejak zaman U lagi. masa tu Auntie Ann pun tengah pregnantkan Nasa. semasa anak first beliau, dia kene c-sec. tp lepas je operation, terus larat bangun pegi tengok Abang Addin (anak sulung dia). pastu, masa pregnantkan Addin, Auntie Ann penah kene operate sebab cyst. pastu c-sec lagi. tapi alhamdulillah mmg cepat sembuh. kalo nak tau detail bole la baca blog beliau.

alhamdulillah, sampai sekarang Mami continuously telan benda2 alah tu. yang paling seksa ialah Soy Protin, rasanya mmg agak yuck, dan menjadikan milo & ribena feveret Mami sangat tidak sedap. masa pregnant, selama 9 bulan tu, satu tin pun tak habis. akhirnya lepas deliver, Mami termotivasi minum balik utk dapatkan susu yang berkualiti. Mami try macam2, akhirnya jumpa.. minum dengan Horlicks atau dengan air oren sunquick.. mmg sgt sedap!!! sekarang Mami makan satu tin sebulan!

masa awal2 pregnant dulu, Mami jumpa mak mentua Auntie Ann. dia galakkan Mami continue taking this supplement, nanti pregnant pun tak nampak macam pregnant. & bertenaga lagi. memang betul... kawan2 Mami cakap, dari belakang nampak biasa je. tengok depan ha.. besarnya perut.

oh Mami tak cerita lagi masa hari Mami lahirkan Hafiy. hari tu Mami puasa. petang tu turun tanda & sakit pinggang tapi Mami ingat biasa aje lah. masa buka puasa Mami makan sikit je, sebab sakit pinggang sampai xbole duduk. lepas tu Nye datang suh pegi hospital sebab pinggang Mami sakit sangat. tp perut tak sakit pun. before pegi tu Mami minum Milo & telur ayam. konon tambah energy la. sekali.. muntah habis smua keluar siap lendir2 lagi. Mami tepiki masa tu 'abisla.. kalo bersalin satgi ni takde energy dah'. yela, seharian berpuasa, buka2, muntah pulak.

tp alhamdulillah, sampai hospital jam 9.30mlm, pkl 12.01 Hafiy lahir. syukurlah Mami diberi tenaga yg cukup.

seminggu lepas Hafiy lahir, Mami timbang kat klinik doktor. Mami loss 7kg drp total 8kg yang naik sepanjang pregnant. wow. masa check follow up Hafiy sebulan Mami dah pakai jeans :D skg? sudah kurang 1kg dari asal. tanpa diet atau senaman extrem!

Hafiy pulak, memang sangat tidak kuat menyusu (kuat melalak je). 10minit tu paling lama la Hafiy menetek. tu pun sangatlah jarang. biasa 2-3 minit dah siap. nak bagi susu pun berperang. tambah2 lagi sekarang. malam2 Hafiy dah lena sampai pagi. nak kasik night feeding pun kena kejut, pastu parking je nenen dalam mulut. tuan empunya badan syok tido. huhu. tapi alhamdulillah. berat badan naik dengan nyaman :D macam baby yang kuat menyusu.

sekarang ni makcik2 Shaklee kat sini gelar Faiz & Hafiy baby Shaklee. Nasa tak bole geng sebab dah pindah Semenanjung :P


tdo banyak2 kasik gomok lagi.


saya tengah diet. tlg jgn paksa saya minum.


one little two little three little fingers...


Mami, saya tak suka susu. saya suka jari. jari sedap tau.




Mommy as A SAHM



tinggal 2 minggu lagi.. masa2 yang paling indah dalam hidup Mami sebagai sorang ibu... being a SAHM! alhamdulillah, walaupun tak lama tapi Mami rasa bangga (?) sebab dapat bersama Hafiy dari lahir sampai skg 3 bulan lebih, dari baju saiz newborn sampai skg saiz paling cun 6-12month, dari diapers size S ke size L, dari berat 3.3kg ke sekarang lebih 7.4kg, agaknya dkt 8kg dah kot.

bila piki bab nak masuk keje balik, memang downzzz terus la Mami! tak bole piki macamana nanti tinggal Hafiy dengan orang. jauh pulak tu. kena pulak Hafiy nangis2 nak mintak makcik tu dokong, nak ke dia layan? isk isk isk. dengan Mami OKla, Mami dah faham tabiat Hafiy. pagi2 pas bangun tido, mandi, nak borak2 ngan Mami. lepas Abiy kerja, Hafiy tido kejap. pastu bangun nak main pe sumer, dlm tengahari masa Abiy balik lunch Hafiy tido lagi. petang dlm pukul 2 Hafiy tido pastu last sekali lepas Maghrib mesti nak tidur dulu. kalo nak keluar ke mana2, kene tunggu Hafiy tido time yg lepas Maghrib tu baru bole keluar. kalo tak, Hafiy xsedap badan la.. nak menangis2 je.

sekarnag Hafiy dah kenal Mami. mengada tau! kalau Mami ada, tak mau je dengan semua orang. kalo Mami tak ada, bole pulak Hafiy borak2, gelak2 dengan sesapa. menyampah tau! sekarang kalo Mami baring & Mami dah *****, Hafiy dah nganga mulut ready nak menyusu. hihihi.


yummy yummy~

Mami la, kalau boleh nak aje duk rumah hari2. seronok sangat jaga Hafiy, tengok perkembangan Hafiy. Mami dapat yang first-hand, Abiy biasa dapat tempias2 je. hehe. Abiy pun seronok Mamu duk rumah, hari2 dia bole balik makan nasik tengahari. kalo tak.. mengkayakan tokei kedai makan je la.


Hafiy, Mami (kaki je) & Abiy nak pegi keje pas lunch.

maybe sebab Hafiy kecik lagi, Mami tak dapat nikmati saat2 yg lebih indah. Hafiy belum turn lagi, Mami harap biarlah Mami orang first tengok Hafiy turn. boleh kan, yayang? xmola makcik pengasuh tu atau maid yang tengok dulu... tak aci tau!

tapi.. atas sebab tu Mami & Abiy decide nak amik maid. biarlah Hafiy diasuh di rumah kita sendiri walaupun bukan Mami yang jaga Hafiy masa siang2 hari berkerja. tp at least Mami bole balik tengahari, ataupun between tengahari & petang, Mami bole convertkan masa pumping kepada masa breastfeeding. hehe. itu lagi best kan? xpayah Mami strelize segala benda alah tu. xpayah duk hangkut beg peti susu ke sana ke mari. lagipun dengan maid tu senang sket Mami nak suruh2 "hari ni xpayah masak ke sapu ke, tengok Hafiy aje" hehe. kalo tinggal rumah orang, kang orang tu nak masak la, nak tido la, nak uk-uk la... taska plak, mahal sesangat!!!

skang ni Hafiy dah tido malam. so, malam2lah biasanya Mami siapkan sumer keje2 rumah. lipat kain, sapu lantai, mop lantai, kemas umah, etc. siang2 memang tak sempat la duk melayan Hafiy je. nanti Mami keje macamana lah... kena keluar awal2, maybe 6.30am kene keluar sudah sebab jem teruk dari Pujut ke Permyjaya, umah baby sitter tu. biasa pukul 7.15am bole lagi keluar (ofis start 7.30am), sal umah kita kan dekat je ngan ofis Mami kat Lutong tu. nampaknya satgi kene tuka strategi la. petang2 plak Mami bajet lambat sampai rumah. mcm biasa la, jem teruk ke arah Permyjaya dari Lutong. pastu 6.30pm dah Maghrib dah, ada beberapa jam je la Mami nak bersama Hafiy sebelum Hafiy tidur.

oh ye, pasal idea maid ni, ada la beberapa kawan Mami bagi cadangan supaya Mami jangan bagi maid masak. Mami & Abiy plan, nanti maid masakkan breakfast & lunch, dinner kalau sempat Mami masak. sorang kawan Mami (maybe she cares for us too much) cakap, tak bole. Mami yg kena masak even breakfast & lunch pun. oh, itu sangat tidak logik. selama ni pun Mami tak pernah masak breakfast & lunch (masa keja+no Hafiy+no maid), takkan tiba2 ada maid, Mami kena masak pulak. lagipun, comparekan food kedai & food from dapur Mami, mana yg lebih terjamin kualiti + kebersihan? bab air tangan maid tu, no komenlah. air tangan chef kedai yg kita tak kenal tu cemana? hehe.

sebenarnya, Mami amik maid bukanlah nak suruh dia masak, basuh baju, kemas umah, etc. tp semata2 nak Hafiy diasuh di rumah. tp alang2 dah bayar banyak tu.. takkan nak suh dia lepak2 je kan. hehe... dan Mami takmolah masa2 yg Mami bole spend dgn Hafiy, kena buat kerja2 yg boleh Mami cut sebab dah ada maid. Mami lagi sayangkan masa yg dah limited tu ntuk spend sama Hafiy..& tak sanggup tengok Hafiy main2 ngan maid while Mami masak dinner!

hmmm Mami tak puas lagilah duk sama Hafiy... Mami tak puas lagi nyanyi lagu 'Itsy Bitsy Spider' & 'Bertepuk Tangan Lala' yg Hafiy suka tu. tak puas lagi bercerita kat Hafiy. tak puas lagi baca buku dgn Hafiy. tak puas lagi nap-kan Hafiy atas dada Mami. tak puas lagi buli2 Hafiy.

saaaaaaaaaaayang la anak Mami niiii!!!


Hafiy yg suka tengok kamera.



"Mami... saya budak baik!"

*jom kita doa semoga Allah kabulkan hasrat Mami & kuatkan semangat Mami berusaha ntuk jadi permanent SAHM dalam masa 7 tahun lagi. ameen~




My Bottle & I

i remember long ago, Mommy has introduced me to bottle. it was Avent one. i was very small and innocent that time [i was only a week, what would i know by then?], so i simply accept the Avent's teat. Mommy was very happy tht time, coz she could leave me, whenever she wanted to do other things in house, or went out.

and because of this, she felt relief, and sometimes gave 'free advice' to her friends who just about to intro bottles to their babies.

yeah, i was OK then, but without anybody knows, i'm still looking for a good time to reject it. hey, it's weird if i'm suddenly reject bottle huh. so i wait for suitable time or any incident that can give me a way! yesss, you know wut, it was a time when Mommy was in deep depression. someone sounds 'mad' at her & told her that it is TOTALLY UNFAIR to give me bottle while she was around. she should wait until 2-3 days before she gets to work, then give bottle to me. then she stopped giving me bottle for a whole week.

guess what, then my time to say bye-bye to silicon teat! my first winning was when Mommy wanted to take shower while i was sleeping. it was Mak Tok there, few second later i woke up and ask for food. Mak Tok gave me bottle, and i screamed "noooooooooooo!!! i don't want this! i want my Mommy!!!" then i heard Mak Tok called Mommy [just came out from bathroom] and asked her "what's wrong with this boy? i think you bottle-train him everyday". then i heard Mommy answered "i did, Mak. but i stopped it last week because **** told me...". "why do you like to listen to other people? look at your son, how if you're not around?" Mak Tok gave Mommy free lecture. then Mommy confidently said "no la, Mak. he knows i'm around. that's why he refuses. if i'm not home he'll be OK".

hehehe. Mommy thought she was smart, but i'm smarter than her.

later, i totally say no to silicon teat. but since my Mommy is a type of 'setenang air di tasik jgn disangka tiada buaya, and very optimistic, the told everyone that "Hafiy xmo sbb Mami dia ada dekat...". hehe.. i should teach her some lessons...

one wonderful morning, Mommy wanted to go out to town for some business. she left me with my Nyang, with 3 bottles-of-4oz-each EBM. she said to Paksu, "if the milk is not enough, please call me".

i knew she has a very great time out.

when she came back in the late afternoon, i celebrated her with loud cry.

Nyang told her that i don't want to drink any drop. i looked at Mommy, she seemed wants to cry. ah, i don't care what she wanted to do. i just wanted my meal... yummy~~~

the following days are the most stressful moment in my Mommy's life. i even didn't want to 'look at' the bottle. and if she forced, i'll throw all the milk out. padan muke Mami bazir susu dia.... hihihi~

Mommy & Abiy tries everyting to make me fall in love back with expressed milk:,

1. leave me at her Aunty's house for several days.
FAIL. even the tok aunties became stress to see me yelled ;P

2. change bottles

from this



Mommy bought a set of Avent bottles. now become her pumping gear and to store her milk. hehe.













and this




bought by Mak Tok. she said Avent's teat is big and this one is better. but both i rejected, haha! [after the incident]









to this



Mommy thought i refused because of Avent's flow, so she bought this teat, Pigeon Peristaltic which will only flow when i suck. Mommy was so sure that i'd be OK cos my other friends, Faatih & Adam are OK with this teat.

me? ahaks.

and she changed to...




...this one...


... after consultation with Aunt Fid. abang Akif [his son] also declare war to silicon teat & still using this bottle. Auntie Fid said "agaknya all Hafiys don't like silicon teat :D"

but i don't like cos Mommy tersilap beli. should be ones that she has to press to get the milk to flow. this one, the milk flows continuously. [but this is the only unit left in the shop] usually it goes into my nose. bahaya wooOoOOoo!

so Mommy decided to wait until i can sit by myself to continue with this bottle.

so she bought..








...this

actually she wanted to buy Adiri bottle, cos the shape is like breast. but when she went to susuibu.com's shop, Puan Kamariah, the owner said, she doesn't recommend this bottle. cos it tips is hard.

then, Aunty Shasuya suggested a cheaper one. Breastflow The 1st Year. it soft, and i like to play with it. but not as my feeding gear :D

Mommy's ones is irreplaceable!











then she tried this




what is this? yuck!












and finally..


Abiy's office gave this set a gift to me.

but the result is still the same :P

Mommy's friend, Auntie Faizah suggestes to try cross-feeding teat. i guess, Mommy would call her to order one. hahaha.





actually, it is not about the flow, or whatever Mommy think is. it is because i don't want to drink from other source except hers. Mommy keeps on trying and i keep on rejecting. Mommy, a easy-to-melt-hearted one, she cannot tahan to hear my cry. when she gives me bottle and i cry, she stop giving me bottle. when it happen everyday, she gets tired, [tired of warming, washing, strelizing...] but she's a very positive mother. she convince herself that i'm gonna be OK. every single day she talk to me and say "Mommy's going to work soon.. you have to drink from bottle OK. Mommy's gonna be very busy and can't come back to feed you". me? how do i care...

since the time is very close for her, Abiy insist Mommy to bottle-train me, with different bottles, intensively. but there goes my Mommy... she's firm enough, but she can't help when i cry like 'nak pecah anak tekak'. and, at my side, i'm very firm too. even if i'm hungry but i just want my Mommy's, not the bottle.

but yesterday, was a history. Mommy let Abiy to bottle-train me, and she went to God knows where. i screamed, but Abiy kept on pushing the teat into my mouth. i didn't want to suck, but he pressed the teat so that the milk flowed. i cried, but he didn't stop. i coughed, but the teat was still in my mouth. and he also babap me. oh my... it was horrible, and i don't want to imagine if it's happen again. [lucky Mommy wasn't there, or else, she might took my picca!]

i got my lesson... don't cry/scream during bottle-training. if Abiy is there, i'm gonna die! yesterday evening, when Mommy offered me bottle, i grab and put the teat inside my mouth. and today also, i didn't scream anymore. but only 1/7 goes into my belly. the other portion goes onto my shirt. hehe. okla tu, at least Abiy won't give me a commando-like training.

hey, don't call me naughty, it's my preference OK... hey, if your favourite food id pizza, then someone comes and asks you to change your favourite food to capati, would you do it? i know i have to drink Mommy's milk from bottle, but since the time is not end yet, couldn't i utilize it? after all, Aunt Fid said, a baby who has bottle refusal is smart! yeah, that's ME!



belakon je ni...














...tobat dah saye xmo nangis time bottle-training.











*Mak Ngah saya tak minum botol. beliau menunggu sehinnga Mak Tok saya balik dari kerja pukul 5 baru dia mamam. tabah bukan?

Airmata Mommy

Mami tak terfikir pun nak update blog ni, sebab ada banyak benda yg kena Mami setelkan. tp td sambil2 cuba menghadam ^&%&%&*^ yg sedang Mami baca kat tenet ni, pening2 lalat plak, Mami bloghop ke blog2 ibu2 yg ada kat cyber ni. Mami tersinggah ke satu blog ni... Bergetar hati Mami baca kisah Aunty tu dgn anaknya. anaknya yang dilahirkan sihat... tiba2 sakit... semoga Allah memelihara seluruh keluarga Aunty Zaimah..

Mami terus pandang Hafiy yg lena dalam buai. Mami tak boleh bayangkan macamana kalo tiba2 ada apa2 terjadi kat Hafiy. sejak Hafiy dalam perut Mami lagi, Mami selalu minta doa "Ya Allah, berilah peluang utkku mengasuh anakku.. yada2..".

bila Mami baca lagi... menitik airmata Mami dkt part senyuman terakhir arwah tu. Ya Allah betapa besarnya nilai seorang anak.. sebelum Hafiy lahir , Mami xpernah menangis bila baca kisah2 ibu yg kehilangan anak. sedih mmg sedih, tp Mami tak nangis pon. sejak ada Hafiy, airmata Mami jadi murah betul.
[malam tadi Mami nangis sbb tension sgt Hafiy melalak sejam lebih non-stop - setelah sekian lama tahan akhirnya kuar juga.]

bila je Hafiy kuit2 buai, mata pun dah luas, Mami angkat & cium Hafiy puas2. mmg tak ada galang gantinya sayang Mami kat Hafiy.

tak tau Mami nk cakap apa... walaupun anak adalah amanah yg dipinjamkan oleh Allah utk Mami tp inilah anugerah teragung dalam idup Mami. sedangkan Rasulullah sendiri mengalir airmata tika mengebumikan putera baginda...

semoga kau sentiasa dilindungi ALLAH sayangku.... [& semoga cepatla berenti perangai melalak yg dah bermula balik tu...]

Why Don't We Buy A House...



the FAQ i get after getting my job, marriage, and a son - all about buying a house.

no. we don't.

at least for these-early-10-years, we may not have our own space called - house - of our own. i have many friends, who already own -at least one- houses of theirs. i don't know their objectives, but for us, not yet. if i could list down the WHY...

1. we stay in Sarawak - & we're not Sarawakians!
2. we don't have much $$$$$.
3. we have very limited knowledge real estate/properties.

reason no 1 is very easy. there's no reason for us to buy a house in Miri, coz we're not going to settle down here! -please let us go back to Peninsular after a maximum 6 years.. - and we're not comfortable with the idea of renting out... it's too far. even Tok Pa -has several houses in Johor-, gets many problems with the tenants. and he gets negative cashflow! uh-oh, we're not that rich to watch our money goes negative.

and, the idea about buying house in Peninsular also doesn't work for us. it's because of reason no. 2, we don't have much money. even combining both our salary never makes RM10,000 in our bank account. if we buy a house in KL, let say, we still have to pay for the house we stay in now! double expenses! and we have to commit to the mortgage for 20-30 years.. while have to pay for our current living. else, the RMs could be safely & lucratively invested. and about renting it out, we have reason#1 to say, no.

and, the idea of "buying is better than renting bcoz the amount of money a renter spends on rent can be about the same as or less than the amount a homeowner spends on a mortgage. by buying, you get the house. by renting, the house will always belong to the owner" doesn't work for us. the answer is reason #1.

for us, since we may not staying at certain place forever [we might be here for another 5 years?..], we probably won't break even on the closing expenses incurred while buying it. futhermore, since we're renting company's house, we don't have to pay for the maintenance. yeay! just call the office if our anything break down, and there's a fortnightly grass-cutter!

even if the financial expert, David Bach said, "if you rent, you'll always be poor", but it's not necessarily suit everyone. unless, we master the no 3, the real estate part. it's true that we can buy and rent it out. but it's not that easy, and it doesn't work to most of our family members, who own houses, even if in KL! so, how about a small part in Sarawak, where the development is keep on coming! will anyone attracts to buy a 'used house' for a high price? we're not gonna sell our house for lower price than we paid! ]and we're not donald trump, renovating a house to be sold for double price! - too good to be true]

when we go back to KL, we'll think about buying a house. for now, it is more interesting to watch the money grows somewhere rather than gambling our luck in a world we are not familiar with. yes, housing price will be increase year by year. but it's just like other market, it has ups and down. it's just the matter of- when?

as for now, just rent. save money, and wait for the right opportunity to come along. yeeha!

Happy 3 Month!



alhamdulillah, Hafiy is 3 month old now. you're getting better (dlm bab melalak2), that's Mommy not sure, was it because of you age or because of being in our very own rented-house. Hafiy dah tak melalak2 tanpa sebab lagi. skg ni cuma melalak bila kehendak tidak dipenuhi & bila kuar rumah aje.

dah masuk 3 bulan ni, Mami tgk Hafiy dah ada 'sense' la sikit. dah pandai respond. tengok TV pun pandai. siap pilih2 cenel lg. nak cenel2 yg ada kaler & talk show. mcm Tom2Bak tu feveret Hafiy la tu. so Mami diskas ngan Abiy, bole la kami start beli2 toys utk Hafiy. after all, mmg skg je sesuai utk belikan toys kat Hafiy, kalo beli kat Semenanjung, susah plak nak angkut. dahla barang banyak.

Abiy nak belikan Hafiy Fisher Price punya deluxe gim tu. Mami pulak berkenan kat kick & crawl. tp mahal sgt la reganya. Mami ckp Abiy, beli yg brand lain je. tp tgk kat sini, brand lain pun dalam 3-4 ratus, tak berbaloi rasanya utk mainan yg bole main dlm umur muda je. at least utk kami la, yg berpendapatan sederhana ni. langsung Abiy belikan Kick & Crawl made in Ch*na punya. far cheaper than Fisher Price punya. hehe. tp toys dia color dull & tak lawa. nanti la ada rezki Mami belikan toys lain gantung kat situ ek Hafiy.


isap tangan lagi sedap da....

untuk pegang2, Mami belikan Hafiy rattle. RM1 je. huhu. skg ni dah 2-3 bilah dia patah. huhu. bajet2. Mami takde gajilah bulan ni, sayang. nanti Mami belikan Hafiy rattle yang better sikit, bila Hafiy dah besar sikit ek. tu pon kalo Hafiy big boy teringin nak main rattle lagi la. haha.

yg kelakarnya, masa mula2 dapat tu, Hafiy xreti kontrol lagi. Hafiy nak lepas rattle tu, tp xreti nak bukak tangan. apa lagi, mengamuk2 la...


Hafiy & rattle. still takleh kontrol lagi.

Mami mintak Abiy belikan Hafiy storybook. actually, utk Mami bacakan kat Hafiy. kriterianya, mesti jgn banyak sgt tulisan mcm kitab2 bedtime stories tu. Mami nak banyak colorful pics, tp takmo pulak yang satu muka satu ayat tu. bukannya Mami nak ajar Hafiy baca, Mami yg nak bacakan.

Mami sebenarnya nak involvekan Hafiy dalam aktiviti membaca. Abiy memang kaki buku. Mami pun suka baca buku (sikit2la :P). so, Mami rasa lagi elok Mami bacakan buku kat Hafiy dari awal. dah besar sikit nanti, Hafiy dah biasa dengan reading environment kat rumah. takdelah pressure pulak bila Mami suruh baca buku nanti. harap2la...

so, Abiy belikan buku kartun disney-pixar utk Hafiy. actually tu katun2 favourite kitorang. hahaha. Mami bacakan buku tu time bfeeding, kadang2 time lepak2. Hafiy cam suka je dgr Mami baca. & sesekali Mami letak Hafiy meniarap sambil tgk gamba kaler2 dalam buku tu, Hafiy suka, tak mengamuk macam selalu kalo Mami letak Hafiy on tummy. asyik je, nasibla air liur tak meleleh...

nanti Hafiy dah bole duduk & pegang, Mami belikan buku kain or plastik utk Hafiy gigit2 yer... buku ni takleh gigit tau, nanti rosak.


Hafiy's first book.


ooo.. ini la Nemo ye

skrang ni, Hafiy dah ada habit baru pulak. menyusu sambil meniarap. Mami baring, pastu Hafiy duk meniarap, menyusu atas Mami. pelik betul. mana la Hafiy belajar ntah. mcm tu baru lama sikit Hafiy minum. tp cute je tau muka Hafiy!


syoknya.. sampai tertido anak Mami ni.

pulak tu skang, Hafiy ada 3 mode kalo nak tido. 1) atas dada Mami 2) atas lengan Abiy 3) dalam buai. kalo tak dapat ape yg Hafiy nak, melalak2 la jawabnya. Abiy cakap Hafiy makin manja... tido malam2 pun nak peluk Mami.

lain2, Hafiy still xde progress sgt lagi. turn, xbole lagi. separuh pun belum. cuma Abiy suka main turn2 dgn Hafiy. Abiy pegang tgn Hafiy sampai duk mengereng, pastu tgk apa reaction Hafiy. biasanya Hafiy tunjal balik kepala sampai melentang. Abiy suka tgk part Hafiy tengah kumpul momentum tu. hehe.

kalo duk baring tu, Hafiy bole gerak pusing2 mcm jarum jam. kadang2 kepala statik, kaki tah mana2. kadang2 kaki statik, kepala tah mana2.

Hafiy suka dalam posisi duduk & berdiri. kalo letak baring lama2, rimas la. nak duduk, especially atas peha Mami bila Mami baring sambil bengkokkan lutut. kalo dalam kereta pun nak berdiri kat tengah2 antara seat driver & co-driver tu. kalo tak, tambah melalak2. Abiy cakap Hafiy tak sedar diri. belagak macam orang besar je. haha.

di pihak Mami pulak, mmg syok la balik rumah kita ni. Mami bole buat stok susu! alhamdulillah, walaupun susu Mami dah tak selebat dulu [dah tak dapat dah 8-9oz sekali pam, dlm 3-4 oz je..] tp at least Mami ada masa yg lama utk menyediakan stok2 tersebut.

Mami simpan dalam botol susu avent, avent via & liner playtex. Abiy yg belikan liner tu. Mami mula2 tu taktau langsung cemana nak pakai! mujurla Aunty Fid yg ajar Mami, ikat ngan rubber band. alhamdulillah, puas hati tengok stok susu yang bersusun. harap2 xde problem la bila Mami dah masuk keje nanti.


stok susu Mami...

sebagai seorang penggemar teh yg kronik, agak susah jugak Mami nak avoid tea intake. Mami mmg suka sgt minum teh. tp... takut pulak Hafiy yg kembung. so, Mami bertukar kepada MilkMaid Tea. sbrnrnya ia salah satu milk booster. rasa dia berherba, Mami memang suka! tak memudaratkan, & bole melawaskan pengeluaran susu. huhu. tp takdela Mami minum hari2, lagipun susu Mami takde memerlukan booster lagi. bila dah teringin sangat nak minum teh, Mami bancuh la segelas.


Mami's favourite tea!

dan, Mami & Abiy dapat pengajaran jugak. kalau kereta kecik, jangan beli stroller gabak2. kan dah xmuat nak masuk dalam boot. muahahaha. tepaksa masukkan bendalah ni kat seat belakang pulak.


stroller Hafiy yang gabak.

alhamdulillah... kita dah about to settle down. cuma rumah tak habis kemas lagi. maid pun akan sampai dalam 2-3 hari lagi. nanti bole la Mami spend time ngan Hafiy lama2. cut time basuh kain, lipat kain, kemas umah,etc... semua tu nanti outsource kat maid ye :)

so, happy 3 month old sayang... be a chubby-mubby baby ye muach muach!

Hafiy, Susu & Cucuk 3 bulan

Mami salu risau pasal Hafiy xkuat menyusu. mcm sekadar menghilangkan haus je. pastu dah taknak. kalo bagi lagi, jerit2. mmg mcm tu tau perangai Hafiy sejak lahir. pelik la Mami. naper xsuka nyusu? nak kata suka botol, langsung tidak! dulu Hafiy sgt OK dgn botol.. sampaila satu kejadian menyebabkan Mami stop bottlefeed Hafiy. stop seminggu je. pastu Hafiy terus taknak botol. kalo kasik gak, Hafiy siap ludah2 lagi ;(

Mami try macam2 nk bottlefeedkan Hafiy.. dari botol sudu sampai peristaltic nipple.. sumer taknak. mujurla lambat lg Mami masuk kejer... [Mami dpt unpaid leave 2 bulan sampai mid Februari].

Mami tengok Hafiy cam kurus je. isk3x. sedey tau. orang lain anak asik menetek.. je. Mami sampai rindu2 nak Hafiy menetek. ;( orang kata, baby boy kuat netek, tp anak Mami tak pun.. minum sikittttttt je. special case? pastu kalo Mami offer siap meraung2 lagi. pastu, Hafiy xde menangis nak susu, Mami yang kene pandai2 bajet timing nak offer susu. silap timing, melalak la jawabnya.

petang td kami bawak Hafiy cucuk 3 bulan. awal sket bln ni, takut terkedepan, tak berkesempatan plak. Abiy akan start bizi. gamble je tadi, nangis ke tak ke, bawak jugak. takkan nak panggil doktor datang umah kot. melalak2 Hafiy dalam keta. kat klinik pun.. tak sempat kene jab lagi dah melalak. dah kene jab lagi la... sampai dr & nurse asik duk cakap "sori..sori..." je. malu je kat orang2 kat klinik tu. sme duk tengok Hafiy. apedah... doktor kata Hafiy takkan demam sal da xpakai the whole virus. amik antigen tu je.

kat sini tak ikut jadual hospital gomen. so, xde jab hepatitis B utk kali ni. tunggu 6 bulan lak. Mami tak kisahla, asalkan doktor tu jamin xde efek apa2. dia kata pengubahan jadual tu sebab kadang2 orang malas nk bawak dah baby g klinik (org2 rural area especially) sal gap dia jauh2. tgk anak dia OK, malas dah gi cucuk, pdahel imunisasi tu penting. so gomen tuka wat dekat2 pulak, so xdela kes malas2. kat sarawak ni, Hafiy nanti kena cucuk JE.

before cucuk, Abiy suh dr timbang siap2. kot melalak [mmg pun!] takleh nak timbang2 dah. 7.4kg Hafiy kali ni,naik 1.1kg dari bulan lepas. tinggi kat ukur plak. tak kisahlah.



tolongla minum banyak2 Hafiy ooiii!!!

Mami xjumpa kabel kamera nk uplod gamba...

Hafiy, Aeroplane, Miri & New Year

we flew again!


mikirkan pasal terbang bersama Hafiy selama 2 jam lebih cukup buat Mami & Abiy kecut perut. bukan susah fly ngan baby.. tp bila fly ngan sorang baby yang asik nak melalak je... mmg haru (bertuahla sapa2 yg babynya suka duk dendiam).

sebenarnya sepanjang minggu kita kat KL & balik Johor, first 2 days of arrival tu mmg melalak je la keje Hafiy. penat agaknya. melalak macam xmo berenti. tp disebabkan tu, Mami & Abiy dpt expect apa yg akan berlalu & prepare metal & fizikal utk menghadapi keadaan yg sama di Miri karang.


Hafiy kt umah Mbah Buyut Rengit.

di KLIA, as expected mmg duk melalak je. abis satu KFC tu Mami duk ronda2 nak suh diam. adeh.

actually Mami igt nak bawak Hafiy jumpa cousin Mami, Uncle Saiful. dia keje polis bantuan kat KLIA. tp tuhari dia ada duty kat luar pulak.. hmm.. & Ayah Chik pun nak datang jumpe Hafiy, tp pukul 8 lebih xsampai lagi, kita dah nak bording dah. tak sempat la jumpa...

masa mula2 masuk pesawat, Hafiy tido. elok2 je Mami duduk, betulkan position, terus tunjuk kekuatan vokal. ada pulak geng kat belakang. mujurla ada soother yang palign berkesan. ABIY! dengan Mami nangis xberenti, Abiy amik je terus diam, siap gelak2 lagi. tp Abiy payahla nak pegang.. dia dah ada byk barang. sepanjang perjalanan 2jam 5minit tu (ahead schedule.. hebat wooo!), Hafiy menjalani macam2 fasa : tidur, bangun, melalak, borak, gelak, berak, diri, duduk, lompat, diam...

kita sampai rumah dalam half and hour before midnite. satu PERKARA AJAIB berlaku! Hafiy langsung tak melalak. siap duk gelak2 & borak sorang2 lg. hoh?! suka yek balik umah Hafiy sendiri? hehe. [lega...]


terbongkang keletihan masa baru sampai.

besoknya pun Hafiy steady je. tak melalak, cuma jerit2 je kalo kene tinggal sorang2 lama2 sal nak borak2. ajaib sungguh budak ini. Mami & Abiy pulak, tepaksa bertunggingtebalik kemas umah sal maid (maid harian) yg dicall tak datang2. siot betul la. rumah pulak macam kapal pecah... dengan habuknya, dapur plak berkulat2 sampai Mami tak selera nak masak. huhuhu. tepaksa tahan tekak makan luar.


L: Hafiy & Abiy titon kat umah Tok Ma. R: Hafiy & Abiy tido kat umah kita. hehe.

malamnya, Mami ajak Abiy kuar nk beli barang keperluan rumah. pegila ke Servay... sambil2 nak rasmi stroller Hafiy. dalam keta, Abiy letak Hafiy dalam carseat. mmg behave habis la! diam je sepanjang jalan. kat Servay pun baik je... sampaila time Mami nak pilih bawang. mula2 jebek2.. pastu terus melalak satu Servay tu. adu... terus tamatkan kerja2 mengkayakan tokey Servay & balik umah. sepanjang jalan tu Abiy duk berleter je. alamatnya dah xde outing la utk Hafiy.. huhu. kene kuarantin sampai umur 6 bulan. huhu.

sampai kat Najwa (kedai makan), Mami bagi Hafiy kat Abiy, terus diam. tido. huhu. pelik la. ada toksid kot badan Abiy tu. bole menidurkan Hafiy.

balik umah pun diam je.


L: Lepak lam buai R: "Mana Abiy ni kata nak balik lunch tak sampai2 lagi.."

kat sini memang behave betul la. Mami boleh letak Hafiy depan TV, pasang Channel kartun or any talkshow. suka pulak Hafiy tgk tgk talkshow. agaknya rasa orang tu borak ngan Hafiy ek? tahun baru agaknya, azam Hafiy xmo melalak2 dah kot? :D


Hafiy tengah borak ngan Abiy

neway, pada hari ni, setahun yg lalu, Mami tengah single body lagi. ahaks.
