Tadaa! I’m baaack!

Hello my darlings!

It’s been too long since I last updated on what’s been happening. Truth be told, I’ve been feeling a bit reserved lately. Lost the spark and will to pen down my thoughts and share my feelings. Today however, I’m feeling slightly better, and I do believe that things are slowly getting back to normal, well.. at least to a certain extent. Will elaborate more later.

I think I’ll have a little recap of the milestones of the past few months, even if only for my benefit 🙂

The last two weeks of March, the husband, Chemps and I, along with my husband’s entire family (parents, siblings, and kids) went to perform our umrah. I never imagined that I’d be have the chance to perform my Umrah this early and what more with my entire family together. It was indeed an eye-opening experience. It was an amazing trip and words can barely describe the overwhelming feeling I felt when I first saw the Kaabah, when I did my first tawaf, when I finished the last lap of my very first Saie, and when I completed my very first Umrah. I’ll hold the memories of my first Umrah close to heart for always and when I find the time, I will share my experience here.

April saw the husband and I celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary and this time, Chemps was there to celebrate along with us. We spent a cosy weekend at the JWW Mariott, KL and that night, strolled around Pavillion in the afternoon (where I got totally shocked at the scene of juvenile Goths hanging outside the mall) and watched as the lights were turned out around the city for Earth Hour.

Then… Allah gave us an anniversary gift too 🙂

On the 1st of April 2012, I found out I was expecting a baby.

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah.

All praises to Allah. The husband and I are absolutely over the moon. We were planning for another one but honestly didn’t expect it to happen this round. So it was still very much a surprise to the both of us.

As of today, I am currently 14 weeks pregnant and so begins the exciting journey of Expecting Dot 2 😀

In May, I celebrated my birthday and Mother’s day! The husband and Chemps gave me wonderful presents that I had earlier asked for (not hinted mind you, I demanded, hahahah) and we celebrated with my parents and sister at the revolving restaurant on KL Tower. It took quite an effort on my end not to barf as we sat through dinner. Morning sickness has not exactly been very kind to me (but that’s another story for another post).

And now it’s June 🙂 and I feel I have so so soooo much to tell all of you! I’m gonna take it slow though. One post at a time.

Till next time, my Doodlers!


Lots of hugs,

Twiggy the Mommy
