Ariz Zuhayr Turns 4 Year Old

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Remember this ?

and this?

and this?

and of course, the infamous this? *shudder*

and this chubby baby who coaxed even the most grumpy person on the street to come and pinch his cheeks and would always always be shocked to know how an 8mo baby could weigh 11kg and worse, he's on full breastmilk, no solids whatsoever?

and who could forget this sunshine-y little benjol-ed 1 year old?

Well people, let me tell you this. I'll shout this in fact.


Cake is Moist Chocolate Genoise with Dark Bittersweet Chocolate Ganache, easily decorated with Spiderman cake toppers and a Spiderman candle. Mummy ada sedikit malas!

Look at him, my little man !!

He turned 4 on 14th February 2009 and it's such a great joy to see him today, all lean and muscular and happy and mischievous and pretty much a nuisance, as only 4 year old boys know how to be.

We celebrated his birthday at my parents. I baked his cake, a two-layered chocolate butterless genoise because I know he won't mind as long as it's chocolate and as long as it's covered in chocolate ganache that he could lick. The girls have specific requests! Grrr!

He's been off diapers completely and since he's still on the breast (that seriously needs a review), no formula milk is available in the house at all. Since he started kindy, he's used words like "huge elephant" to MrGart's suprise and he's talking less about his imaginary friends, though he's constantly fighting aliens with his animals and ben10 friends and transformers' peers.

He goes to school willingly these days, if you consider, showering and dressing him while eyes tightly closed is "willingly" la. At least he WANTED to go to school and goes EVERY MORNING without fail. He kisses girls in the van, which I think needs a man-to-man talk with MrGart.

Hes's crazy over ribena and requests for a "Ribena yang SEDAP" every now and then. Because I used to make him (and the family) diluted sirap or ribena, just to be less sugar, but he equated that with "tak sedap". Now he gets Daddy to make him Ribena yang sedap. Insulting eh?


Alhamdulillah that he is 4 now. Alhamdulillah that he has been healthy and happy and just being a 4-year old. Alhamdulillah that I get to breastfeed him as long as he wants to and I want to. Alhamdulillah that we are a much happier family since the day he was plopped on my chest, the day, I gave birth to him. Alhamdulillah.
