Dear Hamza.

My dear Hamza,

You are such a special little person. i believe you are the perfect one. i love your sparkling eyes, that bright up at any sign of mischief, your full giggling laughter, your little teeth showing when you smile or make those adorable new faces that i have no idea from where you learn. You really are a beautiful baby and I cant believe how i got to be so lucky as to have you as my own.

But the best thing about you is your beautiful, kind heart. You have such a fun and loving personality that amazes me every second of the day. Your awesome sense of humour, the way you laugh at yourself when you know you have done something stupid. Your ability to understand jokes as I make them to you and you always respond by laughing. Your mind…. its genius i can tell.

You are just so much fun to be around. Always making me happy with you little ways. You are crawling all over the house. But most of all, you love to stand with anything that you can find as a support and then you walk while holding it. You are learning so many new things by the day!

You love me and your dad so so much! We are the luckiest. it melts my heart the way you are always running after your dad, when he is around, you even fail to notice me, you have eyes only for him. But i wont complain, cause these days your favourite thing also happens to be kissing your mama 😉

You just love any pictures of us hanging on the walls or any artwork for that matter. It excites you much to see those things, the spark in your eyes and the happiness on your face is unmatchable then.

A walk by the beach

I love the water! well really just watching it from a distance. i m not a swimmer and neither do i get much fun out of splashing in water. But i love walking by the beach, or just sitting and watching the waves go by.

The other night it struck me that Hamza has never been to the beach in his life! WHAAAT! Even when we are at 10-min-drive from the beach? well the main reason for that would be that I never visit that beach often cause of its extremely unhygienic conditions. So i guess we never took him there too. But few days ago, we went for just a quick walk there.

Hamza was amazed by the water. At first he was a little surprised and but looked up his surroundings, found a camel and fell in love instantly. I cant believe how he wasnt even one bit frightened by it and kept stroking its hair! haha 😀

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin or line with baking cups.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, powdered sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the egg, vanilla, vegetable oil, and milk, mixing until the batter is evenly incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Divide batter evenly between baking cups, filling each 3/4 full. Sprinkle the tops with chocolate chips and granulated sugar, if desired. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
