baby talk #2

“Aping, aping !”, she says while pointing to my laptop.

Aping (sometimes Apin) in Khayla’s language is Upin & Ipin. Haha.

Other ‘words’ she’s forming are:

“Ayah”   – Ayah
“Tup”     – Tutup
“Kak”    –  Buka
“Toww” – Jatuh
“Mam”   – Makan
“Dom”   – Jom

She can point to her nose and tummy when asked to.
Knows how to put her hands when told to, “Baca doa !”. In fact, she would put her hands together as if to recite a doa whenever she hears the Adzan, Bismillah or Alhamdulillah. 🙂
Ask her a question starting with ‘Who’ or ‘Siapa’, and she’ll raise her arms. “Siapa tak sayang Mummy ?”, Mr Sunshine would playfully ask and Khayla would raise her arms. T_____T
Always seems fascinated with animals. We’re planning to take her to the zoo soon. 🙂
Shows her temper by throwing stuff. I’ve ran out of ideas of how to discourage her from doing so. Whatever she doesn’t want, she just flings ’em away !
Walks pretty steadily now, thinks she can already run, sometimes.

A future drama queen in the making, just like Mummy !

adjustments.

This morning I had to send Khayla to the nursery because Mr. Sunshine has some work to do outside of KL. She didn’t shed a single tear, as a matter of fact she was pretty calm when she was in the arms of her teacher, while we were both talking to each other. The teacher was telling me that Khayla loves to pinch the other babies (T___________T) and that she can be quite fierce (garang) with them. *slaps forehead*
Aiyoooo, how come lah like that ?! But apparently it’s just ‘cubit-cubit sayang‘ with her friends there.
She also told me that Khayla has a big appetite. No surprise there. Hehe.

Looking at how Khayla is with her teachers and friends at the nursery, it pains me to have to put her through another phase of adjusting to a new sitter. Yes, Alhamdulillah we have found someone who is willing to take care of Khayla once we move to Shah Alam. Khayla does not wail in strangers’ arms anymore (unless she’s in a crowded place, or is hungry/sleepy), but she does take quite some time to warm up to strangers. I can only pray the sitter would have the patience to handle Khayla and that it’ll be a smooth transition for Khayla. Ameen.

I’ve been having mixed feelings about moving out from Gombak.

The cons:

1. I won’t get to see Daddy (and Lene) on a daily basis anymore.
2. I won’t have anyone around to help me keep an eye on Khayla when Mr. Sunshine goes outstation, which is like, all the time. Boohoo !
3. Khayla will have to learn to adjust to the new house, surroundings and sitter.
4. Heck, all of us will have to adjust to the new surroundings and neighbours.

The pros:
1. I would (hopefully) save time and energy because the place we’ll be renting is pretty near to my workplace. I’m hoping to get to save on expenditure, in terms of fuel and toll, but then the rent is pretty high and there will be utilities to pay for too.
2. More ‘family time’ for me, Mr. Sunshine and Khayla. More privacy ?
3. It would be easier for my in-laws to come over.

So yeah, mixed feelings. Hmm.
