Goodbye Mom's milk...!

Source- google

...yes, a lot of things are happening in life. Like Liya mentioned in her previous post, I SUCCESSFULLY stopped breastfeeding her. It wasn't as tougher as I anticipated, though a few new things have popped up as a consequence.

[Toddler Talk] That's a Monkey!

It happened a few months ago. J and Liya were in the park for their evening playtime. There was a boy playing on the monkey bars. He was abruptly moving across the bars and he did somersaults and some naughty moves, as well. Little Liya was watching him very closely.

Wordless Wednesday :: Reaching for the heights

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead...

2 year- What am I upto?

Hi There,

As you already know, I am a big girl- 2 years old. So, what am I up to these days?

Schooling- I enjoy my school time. I love going there. My momma found out the secret behind my (pseudo) whining. She found that only if pappa drops me at school I behave weird, but if she drops me, I stay all calm and  cool. I even give her bye bye, kiss and walk into the class room. So these days, mamma drops me to school and things are going well. Mommas find out every bit of our tricks... huh?

Wordless Wednesday - Beach Photography

Can't you hear the footsteps of snowy days...?
I dread that it's very closer... 
As fall will be ending soon,
Let me share some moments from our 'fall days'... 
Have a look at our day at Toronto Island Beach!

Finally The Terrible Two!

Sweet little Liya,

Sounds like it was just yesterday I went for my first ultrasound scan and curiously looked at the screen as doctor showed me the budding organs of a flesh piece growing inside me. I innocently gazed at the continuous movements happening inside and it was such an unforgettable day for me.

Wordless Wednesday ~ Scribbles on the wall!

Finally, that too happened. Liya has officially inaugurated her scribbling exhibition on the 'wall'.

We live in a rented house, as we are here on a temporary visit. When we vacate the house, it must be closer to how we were given. But now I see the chances of getting a huge penalty with all messed up flooring carpet and a decorated wall.

Another Award..

Thank You Karima for sending me your love as Extreme Muslima award. I am a regular reader of Karima's craft blog and I love it - very informative and 'crafty' too.

As far as I understand this award doesn't come with a huge list of rules..*sigh*.. Well, an award need not be attached to rules always, it is just a way to show your love to a fellow blogger, isn't it?
This award encourages to pass onto few amazing Muslima bloggers and I take this opportunity to introduce few of them, to you (in no specific order).
