6 Weeks Already

My little guy is 6 weeks already.  I had some heart breaking news about a week ago.  Evidentally I wasn’t giving my little one enough milk.   I was wondering why he looked so skinny, because all my other ones were chub – a- lubs by this time.  Well after crying and feeling so horrible.  Allah has given me hope. (Again need to work on trusting and relying on my lord)  I found a breastfeeding center here and they are helping us to get back to fully breastfeeding Insha Allah so please make dua(prayer) for us.


New Family Member

Allah has finally blessed us with the arrival of a son.  I went into labor the morning that they were going to schedule me for a c-section (I was so devistated).  Allah is definately the best of planners.  I really need to work on totally relying and trusting in my lord.  Allahu Akbar!

Todays My Due Date

According to the doctors today’s my due date.  Ofcourse after having 3 children, I know this doesn’t mean I’m going to have the baby today.  And after becoming Muslim I know that only Allah has decided when my baby will come. 

I’m however still feeling very anxious.  Starting to think about that labor pain.  I’m such a wimp when it comes to pain.  I’m also concerned because my doctor says if I don’t have the baby soon then they will either induce or do a c-section.  They say this because I have huge babies.  They say this one is measuring 42 weeks now. 

So please make dua for the safe, and insha Allah natural, delivery for me and the baby. And also that Allah gives me the strength to make it through that pain and hopefully earn some of his forgiveness.

Spring is Here

As salamu Alaikum

Well spring is finally here Alhamdulillah (praise Allah).  We are all getting outside and trying to soak up the sun after freezing for awhile.  The biggest news for us is insha Allah (If Allah wills) is we will be expecting a new member in our family come October.  Which means we haven’t done much schooling since I was feeling completely drained for awhile so we will be catching up over the Summer insha Allaah.  So that is pretty much all that has been going on here.

Enjoy your Spring

Snow Day

When I was a kid I lived in Germany so I had a chance to experience the snow.  It was so much fun.  Back then mom would dress me up in my snowgear and give me my sled and peek outside the window from time to time to make sure I was’nt a popsicle.  (now a days you have to glue yourself to your children before they can go anywhere).  Eventually my dad who was in the U.S. Army was transfered back to the States (U.S.) and we stayed in Washington state for about a year so we still had the snow but then we moved to Alabama then California and I never saw real snow again.  We moved to Pennsylvania about 4 years ago and now we have plenty of snow.  We were struggling for the first 3 years so we didn’t have the right snow gear my oldest was out back trying to build a snowman with 3 pairs of socks on each hand LOL!

The other day my Dear husband went and bought everyone the stuff they needed and couple of plastic green discs which I guess are the new sleds of the time.  Everyone got dressed and we went two doors over to a ramp and we were all sliding down it.  What a rush I felt like such a kid again.  After awhile we went up to the park about 2 blocks and they had this steep hill and all of us were sliding down that thing.  Subhana Allah!  I thought for sure my life was over a few times but it was soooo much fun.  Too bad I didn’t have a video camera because even my husband went down and it was so funny.  He actually screamed a couple of times, which coming from a 6ft 3 / 300 lbs man, doesn’t quite add up.  We were all laughing it was so much fun Al Hamdullillah.  I’m just glad my children and my husband finally got to experience what I did as a child.  My husband even built his first snowman ever with the girls.   Even one of the neighboors noticed our little family day.  We get very few because my husband works so much to take care of us may Allah grant him the best  place in Jana.  Amin.
