And He Speaks (and Speaks and Speaks)

I have finally compiled a list of Nuaym's most commonly-used words, in conjunction with his 2nd birthday, which was err... about 4.5 months ago on Jan 31, 2012. I know, I know, I am such a bad, bad, bad Ibu for not putting up an entry on time.

Awwah Ke-bar "Allahu Akbar" Normally used when he hears the azan, or when he wants to tell that someone is performing his/her solat or when he wants to take part in performing the solat (in which he would be seen grabbing his little sejadah and dragging it around before doing the takbir, rukuk, and sujud). So cute, I like! :)

nannak  "tak nak" (I don't want or don't want to). Usually followed by shaking of head indicating "No".

nasyik "nasi" (rice)

nee-ohh to sit on a chair or sofa or seat. This one is really weirrrrdd. It took me a while to figure this out. Seriously. But as it turned out, he would use the word "nee-ohh" and points to a chair/sofa/rocker/seat to indicate that he wants to sit on/in it. Now we all say, "Nuaym nee-ohh", whenever we wanted him to sit down, and he would oblige.

Sometimes I still find it hard to believe that it has been 2 years since I gave birth to the little darling. Maybe because I still carry my pregnancy weight even after all these years *sob sob*

I pray that Allah SWT will shower him with His bounties, bestow upon him His blessings and protect him from harm. May he grow up to be a righteous and successful Muslim, both in this world and the next. Happy Birthday My Petit Pwince Nuaym.
