erk...how could i have missed this entry. my fourth baby turned four. well...he's now four years and eleven days old. his birthday fell on a weekend of a wedding, so it went by a wee bit unnoticed. plus the boys usually have their celebration in school, since it was only us at home there were no cakes to celebrate.
my brother's birthday is a few days before akmal's. usually we would go for dinner to celebrate his (my brother's) birthday and akmal would tumpang sekaki and blow out the candles, that would keep the limelight away from my brother. this year we celebrated at publika. akmal got his turn to blow the candles which made him very happy.
on his birthday, hubby and i thought about getting him a small cake. we were dead tired after the wedding and got home on sunday at about 3pm. the boys missed their nap time and we wanted them to be in bed early that night. but hubby said, lets get a small brownie for him. so we did and akmal got his song from his brothers and brownies from his parents. yeay!
akmal's growing up pretty good. i wish he would eat more, i know he's underweight. he used to eat anything we put in front of him but now he's getting to be choosy and picky about food, just like amir. its my aim to put some meat on him this year.
he loves school. he's getting to be so good at reading, drawing, colouring and even iqra', which we only planned to start him on next year. he can play by himself, have role plays with his toys, go straight to reading when he's done with his playing, move on to colouring, then when he's tired, he would crawl up on to the bed and nap. he is totally asyraf's brother.
akmal is such a happy boy. he would sing in the car and laugh while watching telly. he would be in his imaginary world and find small things to amuse himself. he doesnt disturb anyone and would be happy playing by himself, much like ariff.
he picks up different traits of his brothers and combine them to become...akmal izzat.
