This lady dah habis pantang. But, healthy-eating has to continue, topped up with lots of exercise now, let’s go!
Now, good morning. <3
While Orked naps.
A wandering mind. A resting pair of feet. Taking notes. Deciding on tomorrow’s meal to be cooked. I love this independence I feel of taking care of the baby and the house singlehandedly while the husband is at work. There is a lot of rushing when it comes to cooking and other chores considering how short a newborn’s nap is. But there is a feeling of achievement that always comes peering through. The days can be tiring. But they are also ultimately satisfying.
I cook these days in anticipation of well-balanced meals and of fresh, healthy ingredients. But this time not just for me. For my baby. For all the neatness I’m passing to her through exclusive breastfeeding. And there sure is a whole lot of satisfaction in that.
"…love is all you need."
Today, Orked sings to her parents’ wedding song. Which is pretty much what she does each day - teaching us love. :-)
Check out more of Orked’s adventures with mummy’s doodles under the hashtag #OrkedAsrif.
Here are some things mummy can’t get enough of - these daily art-and-photography sessions. And your sweet little scent.
Now here’s to a gorgeous Saturday, folks. Orked is spending hers in the garden. Good day!
"…And I am five days old today." :-)
I have been kept busy in such surrealism for the past week, hence my silence on Instagram. It sure was for a very beautiful reason.
We are pleased and beyond grateful to introduce our baby Orked who peeked her tiny little eyes (that never fail to captivate me) recently to the wonderment of this world we live in. The very millisecond in that 6.12pm of the 10th of March 2014 will forever remain magical to us.
SubhanAllah. Alhamdulillah. Allahu Akbar.
Spent a bit of yesterday at the labour ward having my contractions monitored while diligently following the news on MH370. After checking my progress, the hospital staff allowed us to go home, as I may still have some time until active labour.
Spent a huge bit of today capturing perhaps my final bump shoot and releasing more of my nesting instincts at home doing some final tidying-up, packing and organizing of things before welcoming the baby.
Spent each minute still saddened and shaken by the news of MH370. And constantly praying (for everything).
