Family vacation in Prague

A few weeks ago, we took a vacation as a family to Prague. I think it was the most beautiful city I have ever seen ( and i have done my share of travelling around the world). What with perfect fall colors, the rustic warm tones of trees complimented so well by pastel shades of the architecture there, Prague seemed nothing short of God’s best artwork! It was magical! It was so pretty, it hurt!
We took a gamble by taking our one year old with us, having debated many times whether or not. But i m so glad we did! And what a Pro Hamzu has been during the trip. The boy is an entertainer, attracting countless smiles and laughter and appreciative glances our way on the trains, buses, parks, city squares. Charming everyone on the go. (Gets being called a lady killer and womanizer :p). Ofcourse there were moments when we thought “Gosh we arent very smart, are we? We really dont know what we are doing!” But the joy of seeing everybody love him and experiencing the world through his eyes was worth all such hardships. Never a dull moment with this boy. So proud of him. And so grateful for him.
He wakes up in the morning the moment I am up. Sleeps at night after putting me down. Keeps me company all day long with his silly jokes and laughter. This is my favourite stage of him, so happy, so naughty, so witty (and so messy :p). I am loving every bit of it!
I am so glad we took the trip as a family. It definitely brought us closer, it was lovely seeing husband interact with my son and take care of him all day long which he doesnt get to do very often due to his work routine. My heart melted seeing those two together. Made me so proud of my little family. And ofcourse the best part, the most beautiful memories we made. After all, the purpose of life is the acuqisition of memories. And I think, down the road, the things that we will remember with utmost sweetness will be the momories made during travels. Nothing beats travelling and seeing the world and experiencing different cultures, languages, people, weather. World is a beautiful place! its a shame to miss on any chance to not experience more of it than our secluded vicinity.
Just a sneak peak of pictures, lots more to come later!

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.

You make me so so happy every day and with each passing day i love you more and more. You are really precious lil one. May God always protect you from any evil or bad luck.DSC_7309

 

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 😀
