Baby on Board

Lately, I've been blogging about nothing but personal opinions on certain movies... Well, I sort of got nothing else interesting to blabber about... 

Just kidding... 

There's indeed something big going on in my life... It's as big as me getting married... It involves a lot of commitment and effort...

Yes folks... I'm gonna be a father... My wife's now about 6 months pregnant... 

First of all, I would like to express how thankful I am to be blessed with something this big... I'm thankful to the Almighty for my wife and baby's good health and condition... I'm thankful to have such loving parents and in laws and other family members... I'm thankful to have such caring friends... Thank you... Thank you... Alhamdulillah...

Initially, we planned to hold the baby project and take our time to develop our financials and assets first... We were rather indecisive on this baby thing... However, a short moment after our beautiful marriage, the presence of so many cute babies changed our minds... Like seriously, suddenly there were so many babies around... It gave my wife and I the chance to learn what a good idea it was to get a baby of our own...

I guess it's true what they say, "Yang selalu cakap taknak anak tu la yang senang nak dapat anak..."

At first, though I was very excited, this pregnancy matter didn't have much impact on me personally as I'm not the one carrying the child... It all changed when I first saw the ultrasound image of the baby on the screen of the ultrasound machine thingy... I saw its head, its body, its hands and legs... I felt like crying at that time... I was touched... "That's my baby...", I thought to myself... 

I thanked God a million times for those tiny hands and legs... I was so so so grateful to see the baby so perfectly shaped... It was a miracle for me... It was so magical...

So far, I have been trying my best to be supportive... I've been making myself available so I can take wifey to the clinic for regular checkups... I try to be helpful around the house so she won't do too much chores...

Apart from that, I also try to prepare myself to be a good father... When my younger brothers were born, I took care of them until they were able to put their own clothes... I changed their diapers, I cleaned them up, I entertained them... I did everything since mom and dad were always busy with chores and work... However, that was years and years ago... My brothers are now all grown up and because of that, my baby care skills are rather rusty...

A few weeks ago, I tried holding my brother in law's newborn, Iskandar, and I think I sucked at it... I wasn't sure which part of his small and fragile body was safe enough to hold... It made me feel more nervous... I should go buy Handling Babies for Dummies...

I've been reading tons of information on baby care... I found that Parenthood magazine very informational... Besides that magazine, I also search the Net for articles and news on baby care...

My wife is a big help when it comes to religious stuff... She has been telling me about verses of Al-Quran that are worth reading... She also teaches me how to recite the Al-Quran better... Her encouragement and support made me a better person... I'm now more confident to be her Imam...

Despite all of the preparations, I know that when the real deal hits, it'll be very challenging to handle... I must now strive to be a good father and also a good husband... I hope all of you fellow readers can pray for the best for me... Any tips and good information are welcomed as you can leave them in the comments section...

Thank You~
