While You’re Asleep

I stare at you.

I make duaa for you.

I wonder what you will be like after a couple of days, months and years.

I fall in love with you even more.

I can’t believe that I have a baby as cute as you.

I thank Allaah that I have you in my life and ask him to give me the strength and the wisdom to bring you up.


My Little Doll,

Please sleep at night, mommy loves her sleep! Please sleep as soundly as you sleep during the day. I don’t mind if you trouble me during the day but not at night. Please. Pretty Please. Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top.

Mommy will always love you. Muah!

First Outing

Today was your first outing, you are 15 days old. I can’t believe how quickly you are growing. Your original due date was yesterday and you were supposed to be a day old today, but Allaah planned it that you would be 15 days old today. My big girl!

I have a lot to say but I am either so sleepy or just tired. This is what being sandwiched between Fatimahs does to a sane person. Hahahahaha…

Ok, more on your outing, your Nani, you and I went down to Awdallaah Supermarket. We took a taxi to and from the supermarket, my little princess sat in broken, dirty Egyptian taxis! Anyway, you were very well-behaved at the supermarket. Nani carried you and you slept throughout. I am so proud of you. You woke up as soon as I set you on the bed. Inshallaah, there are going to be more outings, just be at your best behavior. πŸ˜€

Now, I am off to nap. I nap when you nap. Ah, the joys of motherhood…

And You are Here

This is going to be a very short post. You arrived on 2nd December 2010 (UAE National Day), finally!!!

More on the Labor and Delivery in the next post.

I love you… πŸ˜€
