Baby Dig Loves Dragon Fruit


Ah, it's been weeks I didn't post anything. What can I say, I have busy days. Baby Dig is now 9 months old. He is able to crawl now and learn to stand up. I can't let him alone by himself for too long. I have to always look at him or else I will be worry about what he's doing. Well, you know the feeling if you happened to experience once.

At his age, Baby Dig has already eaten almost anything. Well, actually it is because he always asks for what I hold in my hands. Anything. So, everytime I have some meal, I offer him one. And he usually grab what I give him or simply opens with mouth. Sooo funny...

Baby Dig has eaten home cook meal. I prepare him food in the morning so he can have breakfast at around 9 a.m. He eats soft rice with veggies and chicken or tofu or fish or fried tempeh. He likes what I cook. Alhamdulillah.

I once bought him baby biscuits, but, he refused to eat them. My elder sons had them after all. He also doesn't like porridge or baby food I bought. I think he really loves my cooking. He eats 3 times a day, in the morning, around noon and in the afternoon. Each meal time has 4 hours in between.

What about fruit?


My eldest son, Big D, didn't really like fruits when he was younger. It was because I didn't introduce fruits to him as early as possible. Well, new mom makes mistakes, right? So, for Baby Dig, I don't wanna make the same mistake. I tried to introduce some fruits in any varieties, but Baby Dig seemed not too interested. I began to worry... Moms always worry, right?

One morning, I ate dragon fruit and was thinking to give Baby Dig a try. I was worried about the seeds. I was afraid the seeds would burden his stomach. So, I filtered the fruit and served him the liquid only. No fruit flesh, no seeds.

He loved it!

The next time I gave him a small amount of dragon fruit with the flesh and seeds. He chewed it happily and asked for another. I was thinking that I would wait for the allergic reaction or something before I gave him another try.

The next morning, baby Dig showed no bad reaction. His poo was reddish but in good consistency. So, I decided to continue the menu. Alhamdulillah.

After some time, I read about giving dragon fruit for baby. It is one of the recommended fruit for babies anyway. Served raw and the seeds aren't big deal for babies' digestive. That's what I see with Baby Dig. And what I like the most from dragon fruit is its fiber. It really really helps a lot in Baby Dig's poo. Dragon fruit itself is also rich in vitamin C. Tastes good and easy to chew even for 5 teethed baby like Baby Dig.

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports.

Alhamdulillaah *smile* The hijab is soft, smooth, looks expensive and non see-th…

Purity And Prayer: An Islamic Children Rhyming Picture Book

In my younger years I once loved listening to nasheed (Islamic songs). Many songs I listened and memorized from groups of male to female nasheed group. I even handled a group of nasheed during my college years about 20 years ago. The rise of Islamic living was about to blossom at the moment. Hijabis had been started to appear here and there in campus.
Nasheed changed the way I spent my time. The guilty feeling of listening to music became smaller. I don't listen to music anymore now (gonna tell you later about it insha Allah) but nasheed was one good choice for me.
What I liked the most from nasheed is the rhyme. I am quite an auditory learner so I found rhyming is so much fun. It is more fun when comes to learning something. Kindergartens learn things through songs and rhymes as well.
What about learning Islam through rhymes? I have a great news! Book publisher, Prolance, has released a book called Purity & Prayer: Rhyming Picture Book of Sacred Rulings by Ameena Bint Abdir …

Bringing My One-Year-Old Son to Masjid for the First Time

On that fajr time, my first and second son opened the door to go to masjid for fajr salah. Suddenly my one-year-old son cried. He wanted to go with his brothers. I refused his wish, worrying he might be bothering other people by his cries or screams. But, my husband suggested me to bring him. So I walked to masjid with my son in my arms.

I entered the masjid, standing behind some ladies doing their qabliyah fajr salah, waiting for the iqamah. I chose the second row which was the last row of the ladies' area. I still held my son in my arms and he seemed to enjoy the moment.

The salah began. I was lucky there was only a lady at the left meaning that I wasn't in the middle of the row. I was afraid that my son would cry or something because he often did that everytime I do salah at home. I don't know why he behaves like that. Is this mukena (salah cloth) frightenes him? Or is it my flat expression during salah makes him scary?


At masjid I did the takbiratul ihram with one han…
