little boy blue

Two weeks in since i started working.

I still wish i can just be with my son rather than in the office, but hey, which mom doesn't?
but i am surviving the 7am - 6.30pm period being away from my baby boy.

I have a nice quiet time watching my son's video while i express my milk at work, so i am very happy about that.
Yes, i am fully breastfeeding AJ as of now, and determined to do so until he's 2 years old.

We were at AJ's pediatrician's last weekend to get his 3rd month vaccine jab which consisted of DTP,HIB and ORAL POLIO (1st dose). AJ's a big boy and very strong. He screamed only when the fluid was pushed in through the syringe, and not when the needle inserted his left thigh. And he didn't scream after that as well! Minutes later he fell asleep.

No fever, either!

At 2nd month, the 3rd week, AJ's development is as below:

weight : 5.7kg
length : 60cm
HC : 40cm

which are all above average, and Dr. Ling, AJ's pediatrician, said,"Growth, very satisfactory".

Other developments:

He talks. so much. it's as though there's something really important/interesting he wants us to know.
He smiles. He would smile back when i smile at him.
He turns when he hears his name being called.
He loves to watch TV. and anything moving. like his mobile.
He can stand on his feet.
He holds his neck firmly.
He cries less now, he's almost out of the Colic phase.

AJ turns 3 months next week. Soon, he'll turn 4 months old, the next will be 5 and so on.
i wish i don't miss it when AJ starts rolling. or crawling. and most importantly when he starts saying," MAMA "
(because no baby can say mommy properly at first, right?it's always MAMA and DADA)

meanwhile, here's AJ at 2months.

so do you think he looks like me? or my husband?

mad about the boy

Today is my third day of work after my confinement has ended.

IT IS HARD being away from my little boy. I miss him every minute we are apart. Quick calls I made to the babysitter's doesn't help either (well , it helped a bit, knowing my son is fine and in good hands) I wish my little boy can come to the phone and say, "Mommy come home quick, i miss you!"

little AJ is everything i imagined he would be. he's super adorable! ( well doesn't all mothers think of their babies that way! ) I would write everything about him but first, let me tell you all about his name selection.

My husband and i named him Muhammad Aaryan, because of its meaning.

Aaryan comes from the Indian word which means Illustrious, from the Persian word which means Strong, from the Sanskrit word which means Shu veer and Gentleman, and also the UTMOST STRENGTH.

From other source, (my Indian colleague, Moorthy) Aaryan means the best of the best, the people who came into India and changed the Indians.

Yes, Aaryan is more of an Indian name, at least, the word Aaryan came from that part of the world. It may not be a common Muslim name, but because Aaryan is our utmost strength, we chose to stick to this name selection. To us, if we teach Aaryan the right way to become a faithful Muslim, anak Soleh, InsyaAllah, that is who he will turn out to be.

Meanwhile, this is a picture of him, taken from my sister's IPAD. tengah sedap tido.
