On 13th Nov which is Adik's 3rd birthday, Hubby & I won't be home to celebrate it with her. So, we'll celebrate her birthday when we got back home which we'll pick a later date. Cian princess mama ni...Since mama is away on her birthday, tak dapat le nak blogging..May be sibuk shopping kut at that time..haha..
Nearing her 3rd birthday, she's done a lot of stuff & learned new things. She doesn't wear diapers anymore..(well, except at nite coz takut terkucil :D), She can recite alfatihah which surprised me last week when I heard her recite the surah. But, according to Hubby, she knew the surah way be4 last week! I tak perasan le pulak coz Adik selalu ikut Cik Jun balik rumah.. She also loves to recite selawat syifa & zikir taubat which she learned from astro oasis. She's also very helpful. Kalau nak suruh ambik benda2 cepat je dia tolong. She likes to help me clean the dishes, standing on a chair. ( But, of course le i kena cuci pulak later..). But, she's also veeery manja. Kalau kat Cik Jun tu asyik nak suruh dukung je..
To Adik, my sweet princess, ' Happy 3rd Birthday' on 13th November 2009. May Allah bless u always. Stay sweet & lovable. We love you..
The soon-to- be Miss 3
