Meet Adam!

This post has taken me awhile to get done, because as some of you may know, newborns are quite demanding! I've been working on it for quite some time and came to the conclusion that the best thing was to let pictures do the talking. Adam is 1 month old today alhumdulillah and, despite all the lack of sleep and nonstop feed/poop/sleep schedule I really am shocked at how fast this month went by. My mom was around for 2.5 weeks to help out which was SUCH a huge help that I've just been struggling to manage ever since she left back home. 

Someone wise once said about child rearing that the days are long but the years are short and I couldn't agree more. Almost daily I am beyond exhausted by the time 6:30 pm rolls around and often you can find me texting Wajih with a desperate 'please tell me you will be home soon' message. But every time I look at Ali and how overnight he has transformed into this big grown up person of his own, I am reminded to cherish every bit of each stage that Adam goes through. 

Happy one month my dear sweet Adam. We are over the moon to have you as a part of our family and cannot wait to celebrate many more of these milestones with you. May each of them be blessed with laughter, health and love always.

first of many kisses from big brother!





I have not met a big brother more loving than Ali, mashAllah. He is so gentle and so affectionate towards Adam that it breaks my heart sometimes when I have to ask him to please stop kissing his brother already! He's always ready to help put the binky back in baby's mouth or throw out diapers, and sometimes even hold the bottle! First night he jumped into bed with Adam ready for a sleepover!


First bath given by Nani!
