Salaam (Peace)! As a new mom, people always told me, “Enjoy them while they are little, it goes so fast”, but I never really understood that until recently. My daughter is why I decided to be a stay at home mom, and now she is 4 going on 5 in sha Allah (God willing). Tear, tear! Having a baby in the house just makes her seem so much bigger to me! Like she’s fourteen, okay not that much bigger (ha), but sometimes she can act like a teenager! So independent, determined and strong willed. Its definitely a challenge for mama when I can be the same way, ma Sha Allah (as God has willed) and “woo-sah” (term used to let off some steam, from the movie Bad Boys II). She makes her own plans, cleverly uses the phrases I say to her on me and negotiates her reasons pretty darn well. If she doesn’t agree with your reasoning, she will ask you for another reason (insert laugh). Here I thought I was the boss at home. Ha! Such a little grown up already Alhamdulillah (Praise and thanks to God) #bossgirl
This brings me back to my son. I slowly see how fast he is moving from one phase to another, if that makes any sense. It simply amazes me. Guess the first time around, the new mom phase had me preoccupied! Alhamdulillah for round two. I pray that Allah (God) protects all our babies, even the big ones! Ameen.
My little Reflection for my little boy.
Six months have gone and come so fast
Alhamdulillah for such a blast.
Sleepless nights and cuddles galore
Alhamdulillah for this and more.
Nursing sessions, spit up and drool
Alhamdulillah you make it cool.
Now you’re standing, eating and sitting.
Alhamdulillah you’re so befitting.
Baby rolls from head to toe
Alhamdulillah to watch you grow.
Grunts and Giggles, kisses and hugs
Alhamdulillah your sweetness, it tugs.
A mama of 2, a brother, a son.
Alhamdulillah we love you a ton!
