Sara's First Solid Food

I have not been updating for quite a long time. My writing skill has been lacking since then. I am running out of ideas of what I am going to write; especially when it comes to the part of choosing the beautiful yet meaningful words. Hurmmm...

Okay done with that.

Anyway, my little daughter has reached to 6 month old last 15th May. I am extremely excited to start cooking her food, especially her very first food. As a first time mother, I am determined to cook for my daughter as long as I could. Apart from my hectic daily life at work (yes, work has been piling up right now), the house chores and etc,  I tried to find some quality time to be spend with my little girl. It's a wonderful experience to see your child growing up. And it would be even more wonderful to pamper our child with the homemade food, our own 'air tangan'. =)

So for Sara, I started out with plain porridge serve with breast milk I prefer to use breast milk for thinning the texture of the porridge instead of using plain water. She loves it from the first bite. And oh, looking at her, spoon feed her is the super precious moment.

p/s: buah betik tu tok wan sara yang makan.

plain porridge yang dilenyek di dalam penapis dan sedikit jus betik yang ditapis juga.

I gave her plain porridge with breast milk for 3 days. And then the fourth day I made pureed avocado served with breast milk. She loves it though.

I used this recipe I've got from http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com


Baby's Mashed Avocado for babies 4-6 months
Peel and de-pit a ripe avocado
Cut “meat” out and mash with a fork

There should be no need to use a machine as just like bananas, avocados have a very soft consistency and texture. Avocados do not need to be cooked.


I'm still try n error, trying to mix and match the recipe for Sara's meal so that she does not bore with the food. In a meantime I have to monitor what's the YES and NO for Sara because I do not want to feed her with the food that will lead to allergenic.

This week, I cook porridge+vegetable for her. And today, I tried to add some ikan bilis to her meal.

Porridge with carrot, sawi and ikan bilis
- uncooked rice ( 2-3 spoon )
- steamed carrot
- sawi
- ikan bilis yang telah dikisar halus

Cook all ingredients together ( except for ikan bilis) for 30 minutes. Add ikan bilis yang dikisar halus and stir.  Leave the porridge to cool a bit. Then mash it on the sieve. Add breast milk to thinned the texture and to make the porridge tasty. ;)


And for dinner I just make simple mashed potato and  carrot, also serve with breast milk.

Had her ear pierced! And more..

I have to blog about this. So that when Sara read this (i hope she eventually will when she's grow up) she knows that she had her ear pierced when she is only 5! Yes. Very young at age. Even yours truly had her ear piercing at 20yrs old, i guess. Couldnt really recall but I am pretty sure I had it during my uni time at Sg. Wang Plaza to be exact. Dah besar baru ada the guts untuk pierce kat telinga. Haha. Talking about me being chickened out, lol. So Sara, there you are. Yes u had a little sob right after the process but they only lastrrr for few minutes and then you were okay and all smiled. Proud of you my brave little girl. 
So Adib had his follow up check up with his Paeds, Dr Afifah of KPMC yesterday and alhamdulillah the result was good, except he had lost around 200gram. He is now 6.7kg, compared to 6.9kg last week (before admitted on 5/10/15). Aim for next check up is 7kg. InshaAllah. Adib, mama doa Allah will grant to the best of health. Same goes to Sara. And everyone of …

Sara & Adib @Cyberview Resort & Spa

And yes we are here! For 2 nights. Pre-book on hotel's website for Superior Chalet but been told during the check-in that Superior chalet is not available at the moment so guess what, our room has been upgraded to Executive Deluxe for no extra charge. How cool was that! Yeah I know I know. Hehe. The room is huge and super nice and it has a four-poster bed. Super like. And our chalet is only few steps away from the pool. Rezeki Adib n Sara. Its Adib's first outing and first hotel stays.
Anyway I am so gonna enjoy our stay here in Cyberview. Had bfast earlier at Verandah Restaurant and strolling around the resort and surveying the pool area. Sara had her 1st round of swimming with MM while I bathed Adib in our room. Later will go to IOI putrajaya for lunch. 
For now, lets cherish the moment and enjoy the photos while i'm joining the kids and hubsy for a nap. Later.
Hope you guys have a splendid school break too.

Alhamdulillah 'alaa kulli haal.I have safely delivered a baby boy on 28th April 2015 in Kpmc Kajang. Baby weights is 3.2 kg, 51 cm length. A normal delivery with vacuum execution.
So,
Now we are a parent of two!! Subhanallah. A beautiful daughter and a wonderful son. It was an amazing feeling. These whole 2nd pregnancy and labor process was totally different from the first. I'll blog about it later anyhoot. I am a mom of two now, so I am pretty occupied! Hehe, just kidding. 
But honestly, despites dealing with the pain of being induced and labor, I still love being pregnant, again, yes I do and childbirth is a bless Ya Allah. Thank you Allah. 


To cope with two kids in early days seems to be the hardest things ever.  EVER! But i believe we manage. Yes we will. Slowly we managed. And things are suprisingly working pretty well atm. 

Alhamdulillah. All praises are to Allah swt.
