Eversince he was born, 12.1.2008, he made his conquest with great success!
All the time in this house was his to rule, bear and share
When he decides to wake up, chuckel, look around if all are present
Satisfied? Then he would decide to have his breakfast
Others should give way or rush to the meal table
Next? Mama's turn to have breakfast. Slow? Means, you would miss a turn

When all are done, Harith signals to have his great time in the bath...tub! He never enjoyed anything more that the dip and the lying in the bubbles Cleaning was rush, rush and rush. BUT he never complained, so no need to rush
All smiles and chuckles in the water, warm of course!
Wan was ever so tempted to shower him under the cold tap but...dare not

His cries would surely reach Mama's ears...or even Kak Sarah's house next door
He has this strong "fifth gear" voice when in anger or excitement or eager
That scares everyone...Aunty Diyanah would always try to calm him down
Sssshhh, sssshhhh, sssshhhh, she went...
I guess Harith would not like that sound so much because eventually his nappy
would be filled up
Hahahahaha, he conquers us all

The reading time with Wan (me) was all so calm and blissful
It usually started with early morning prayer...Al-Fatihah and surah lazim
If he shows lasting tolerable face...we both would lie down on Wan's bed
And continue with longer verses
Until Harith gives a sound to tell he is tired of lying down...

A book that Wan calls "Harith's friend" would change the view and colour
The picture of a boy standing with clear features attracted Harith so much
He would give adorable sounds like "communicating" with the "boy" and approves
He would enjoy looking at the "boy" up and down and up and down again

Then came a different "sound" that Mama would automatically understands
So, off they went into seclution and filling up his tummy with all the goodness
By then, either he falls asleep or Mama would fall asleep
Otherwise, Wan takes her turn to "burp" Harith
Then it all begin again...the reading with "Mat so and so"
Wan likes giving names to this little boy in the book...
Everyday he would have different names given without much complains

Evening time bathing time...rain or shine, Harith must be bathed
That's the order of the house!!
Sometimes I could see Mama "dry cleaning" Harith quickly
A real quick one would be sufficient...the order of the day came into practice...

Through the laptop came the nursery rhymes that Wan would surely sing
Wan still remembers the songs she learned
More than a decade ago in school, in her music class...
The music from the nursery rhymes were without any voices...
Only lyrics were written...

Hence Wan played the role of an "old lady singer"
Which Harith still enjoys listening to anyway....he has no other choice, has he?
Some songs are played on fast track, which Wan would gladly skip
Pitching would be out with some soprano notes...Wan lost her voice here
Anyway, the two great lads are enjoying their time together
Aalthough being conquered so to say!!!!
Harith knew too well what "Incy Winsy Spider" would do
Wan would crawl her fingers gently up Harith's legs
He gave a broad smile plus some approving laughters

Night time was no body's time, it's all Mama's time with Harith.....
Harith wakes up nights after feeding to watch his Mama going back to sleep...
While he plays alone or "talking" to himself
Imagine that happens in the wee hours of the morning too...
The whole household is being conquered by Harith the cute little baby...

But some people missed out on all the happenings....guess who? Mr.Who of course!

It is true whay they say: Grandma / grandpa loves (more accurately pampers) their granchildren more than mothers / fathers....

To love is fine, but to pamper is will spoil the child...

Loving is one thing Doc. Holding him in our arms is just too much to bear now. So, I particularly, would opt to lying down with him on cushions or in bed reading stories or flipping through colourful pages.

The other day, we (me, him and his mom) just came back from the chiropractor. On the way, we decided to get some groceries. The push chair (his stroller)was left behind. So, like it or not...he was in our arms. As we took turns to hold him, we felt our "newly mended arms" became painful again. Hahahahaha!

This evening he was so excited to see the cartoon programme that he was jumping when I held him up. Then after changing him, I put him at the edge of the cushion with me standing. Suddenly he gave a push and he fell onto the cushion straigh down...Both me and him were shocked but he was not hurt, so no cries came. He is getting stronger now.
