6 Months Old.

Last Friday Hamza turned 6 months old. Its a milestone in the baby diary. My beautiful baby boy is half an year old….WOW!

Thank you my love. For being mine. For choosing me to guide you. Its an incredible responsibility, one that I have the utmost respect for. For letting me have the absolute privilege that it is to spend every day with you. Mama loves you lots!

The day that changed my life was the one when you were brought to me in that hospital room. You were a perfect snow ball. So peaceful and calm. So complete. You completed me too. Since that day, it has been an uphill. Uphill of happiness, of pure joy. Each day is filled with so much love, happiness, smiles, hugs and kisses.

You are becoming so naughty day by day, I watch you with so much awe and amazement in my eyes. You are becoming your own little person. I see a personality developing, so friendly, so social, so adorable, so naughty. You are loving to roll over all the time these days. Infact most of the time, you are on your stomach in your crib playing (read eating) with your toys, crib sheet, crib bars etc. I introduced you to solids at about 4 months and so far the progress is going quite good. You love your food (most of the times). You have such a sweet tooth! Recently I introduced you to half-boiled egg and you seem to love it, other than the fact that most of leaks out of your mouth as its so watery. Nevertheless, high-five for liking the egg! (you hated potato and I had begun questioning whether you really are my son or not, and you settled the question by going for the egg 😉 ). You are just not interested in sitting up till now. You started teething at 4 months old, and now you have 2 front teeth midway out. And I think they are the cutest spectacle in whole wide world.

And its time for the cute baby pictures i think, here you go!!!

I am a Cookie Monster!

I cannot declare my love for chocolate chip cookies strongly enough in words. Yesterday I tried my luck at baking them. Turns out they are the easiest thing to bake! Hello future home-made chocolate chip cookies! 😉

I starting looking for a recipe that would involve less and basic ingredients and simpler steps. I was in luck! I found a great recipe that was extremely easy to whip up and cookies came out great — taste wise as well presentation wise. The best thing about this recipe is that it only makes two large cookies. So I can divulge in this sinful pleasure every once in awhile without any tempting leftovers calling my name later.

Make two chocolate chip cookies. Eat them with your partner. And be happy. Unless you want some more. In that case, make some more 😉

Aaaahhhhh…. Gorgeous perfect chocolate chip cookies….. You were delicious!!!!

So long cookies…. We ll meet again. Soon.

Houses are built on Dreams.

Well I am a sucker for organizing stuff. There is nothing in this world that makes me more upset than MESSES!!!
I may go so far as to call myself suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder when it comes to cleanliness and putting things in order. When I wake up every morning, first thing I want to do is go through every room and put every thing in its rightly place, clear up any messes, do dishes (if leftover from previous night), put away any evening shopping or grocery that is sitting on the dining table, make up beds, fold laundry, put away any clutter etc. After doing these tasks, I feel like some kind of peace, harmony, order has been restored in the universe. The world is a happy place to be in again. Now I can go about planning the day, living my life. As if.
Yes I am that girl who dreams of someday building my own house. I love natural light in a house. Right now where I am living, the place is full of awesome yellow light. But thats about the only plus for this rental house. Let me not go into the faults and shortcomings of this place, or I will be up whole night.

Some beautiful rooms filled with gorgeous light.

I have nesting traits in me. I would prefer a warm, cozy, simple yet stylish, functional kitchen over a stylish bedroom. Kitchen pantry is a thing which I dont have right now and a thing I absolutely need and dream about.

How clever are these pantries….

After kitchen storage, comes bathroom storage. Here are some inspiring ones….

Last but definitely not the least on my list today is a closet (or preferably walk-in closet). I have lived my whole life using cupboards and drawers so the concept of open storage space for clothes n accessories is exactly what I need. Where you dont have to disassemble the whole stash of clothes just to find that long lost piece of clothing beneath the heap! Happens everytime. Happens to everyone.
How awesome it would be to combine the below ideas into one nice, stylish, elegant walk-in closet. Well…. A girl can dream right. RIGHT?

PROJECT DREAMHOUSE: Alot more to come. Over n out for now.

Some day I am having.

There are days when you just feel like banging your head against wall. On repeat. Today is one such day.
Why do babies dont eat even they are hungry? Why do babies dont sleep even when they are sleepy? why oh why?
Well for my little one, the cleaning boy holds more interest than any kind of food being directed at his mouth. And when I gave up on the solid food, and brought a bottle, he would start rolling the nipple from one side to the other in his mouth without drinking more than a few drops. HELLOOO!!! YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE HUNGRY!!!
Some major patience level is required on such times I tell you. Specially if you are a foolproof planner, a walking timetable, and a control freak like me. I wish babies came with a programmable chip where you could feed the code for the entire day, time to eat, time to poop, time to sleep, time play, time to laugh, time to kiss n hug mama….. well I for one, would definitely be including alot of hug n kiss mama commands in the daily code for sure. Yep, I am flustered and agitated at his not eating properly, but I would swap ANYTHING for baby cuddles. And baby’s sleeping time. Just saying.
I think I have blabbered enough without making any sense. Signing off.
