30 days after..

I know i've been 'gone' for about a month...sorry sangat but i'm still adjusting to motherhood and i have to admit that i barely have time to surf the net...kengkadang nak mandi pun kena postpone sampai lewat so, pepaham je la ya? *wink*

Dahlia is now a month old and boy, each day she's making us love her more and more...cair ok?

sungguhpun most of the time she sleeps, main and look around curiosly with her big round eyes, kena tukar diaper and of course, minum susu often; she really is a darling...

after a month, what we have seen of her :-

* she has gained about a kg since birth

* she would drink milk most of the time during the day and malam, about every 3 hours....

* feisty - gosh, you should see when she wants something i.e milk, dukung


*seorang yang amat pembersih. she would kick up a fuss so that diaper kena change as soon as the deed is done. takmo tunggu lama tu...and even kalau sikit jer pun, kena tukar juga...

* she loves to smile...eventho tgh melawan ngantuk tapi at the same time nak minum susu, Dahlia also loves to smile (i know its involuntary but cair tengok dia senyum or ketawa esp bila tgh tidur).

* she does have a tantrum (a trait my husband cakap macam i)

* gosh, she's so bijak and strong! u should try to hold her tangan or kaki, she would keraskan those limbs kalau tak suka...kena pujuk sikit baru boleh lembut... :-) beside that, tak sampai sebulan dia dah cuba mengangkat kepala bile kita try burp her after feeding...and if terlentngkan dia, she would try to push herself up..

* with her big eyes, she would tengok all over the place and stare, as if trying to absorb what is happening around her...she loves the colour blue and red.

*she loves the sound of cats and birds ouside.
(note : bee, thank you for the cot mobile! ada bunyi burung and we play it all the time to soothe her!)

* she tak takut dengan orang...almost everyone can pangku her easily.

* she doesn't like being swaddle but we still do it coz dia selalu terkejut bila tidur..but now i have to swaddle her after feeding and then pray for the best so that dia tak terjaga...

* if she sedar kena swaddle, she would cuba sedaya upaya sampai berjaya utk keluarkan the tngan...u should hear when she menguit-uit untk keluarkan tangan! (she would also menangis if tak berjaya or until somebody free her)..

* eventho she cries, but she's not really a baby yang kuat sangat nangis..kengkadang la menangis sampai takde suara, itupun sebab dia marah or trying to catch ppl attention or tak suka baring kat the changing table...

* she loves warm water masa mandi. if its the rght tempt, she would be very quiet and enjoying the bath....

* most ppl would cll her banyak akal. :-) she would open up her eyes masa time tidur utk tgk sama ada ada orang sebelah dia or tak...


* kalau tidur, kepala dia berat more on the right side. tangan sebelah kiri lebih aktif berbanding kanan.

* if tak swaddle (0r berjaya melepaskan tangan), she loves to letak her hand di telinga and hidung (just like her Abah) semasa tidur.



i can't believe that one mnth has passed (at tims i still can't believe that i am now a mom)...sekejap je rasa...

Great update. Love the first, second and last pix very much, she's soooo cute. God bless all of you.

p/s: Months ago, my mom would forbid me from taking pix of my new-born nephew when he was asleep, especially cannot simply use flash. Reason - he would have shocked and have bad dreams. I remember once I used bounced flash and took several pix of him when he was about three months old. He ended up not sleeping and cried the whole night... :Þ

i agree with sabb.. dahlia looks like her daddy! and sungguh comel when she open her eyes just to make sure her mommy and daddy are beside her.

fab said...

anyways bila baca entry u nie...i akan pejamkan mata i so that my baby will follow in order to put him to bed. (u have no idea kalau luqman takmau tido sometimes sampai 4 hrs straight nak org dodoi..cram mak tau.

skejapnyer dah a monthkan... 2 tell u the truth even rayyan dah 4 bulan me still xpercaye jadik mak budak dah...hehhee nway Dahlia is so adorable!!!

Sabb, she really is like tank..a lot! temper andsikap tak sabar je macam i...oh, and also manja..hehehehe..

Dani pun suka keluarkan tangan? boleh gang...her mittens selalu 'hilang' when that happens...u swaddle dani sampai umur berapa?

Allison, firstly, Gong Xi Fa Chai! thank you for liking the pxs..no i know why most parents suka ambil their kid's pixs..ahaha...

about the flash, my bro took a pix of dahlia and my dad using flash..luckily she was alright...*lega*

btw, she loves the camera..most of the time sure pandang punyala :-P

Tun, yup, dia tidur kengkadang suka buka mata..tp if baru tidur, dia akan make sure ada org dgn dia tak..sometimes i have to wait for a while before i swaddle or letak her in the cot..if not, sure menangis..

Fab, tulah, tak sabar nak Dahlia besar...boleh merangkak or jalan etc.tapi kengkadang rasa takut pula...sebab nnt tetiba je kita tgk dia dah teramat besar and ada life sendiri...

and u were right about thinking boleh handle things well...seriously sometimes its so overwhelming and buat kita sedih...but i bersyukur sangat ada my family to help...

trick yang sama i guna juga kat dahlia...dia tu wakeful baby, so susah nak tidurkan dia most f the time...kalau tertidur masa nyusu, tak lama lepas tu sure terjaga...either dia nak main or sambung isap susu..agak penat.

the thing is most of the time i buat cam tu, i pun tertidur terus..sambil pangku dia..isk. nasib baik ada that bursing pillow. nak pangku dia can take hours too...

iezma, serious tak percaya dah jadi mummy kan? gilalah..hahaha...

thank you, Dahlia sekarang makin menembam! (can tgk beza gambar masa lahir and yg terbaru kan?) *wink

Tahniah. Saya biasa melihat puan semasa puan kecil dan selalu datang ke BERNAMA. Sedar-sedar puan sendiri sudah menjadi ibu. Tatanglah anak ini sepuasnya, limpahi dia dengan kasih sayang sepenuhnya. Tapi pada masa yang sama jangan lupakan jasa ayah dan ibu (which I know you will not.)
