well, here's a checklist:
- menu for the day - checked (mama and wan)
- guests invitiation - checked (mama and wan)
- Jihan's presents - checked (mama, papa, wan and atok)
- birthday cake - checked (mama)
- Jihan's birthday gown - checked (mama and papa)
- venue preparations - checked (awaiting cleaning and polishing by all of us)
basically, that's all i think...her 1st birthday last year, we had the similar things as well....so nothing extra special...it's time to meet friends and relatives and chit chat and eat and eat and have fun together....and the most important thing is to make everybody who comes happy and satisfied...
since Jihan is still small, this special event is to help her to socialize and make friends....i just hope that she'll be in her good mood on that day...

my Jihan is now almost 2 years old...she has shown her interest to learn new things everyday...she loves going into the kitchen and takes some spoon, small frying pan, plastic cups and plates and pretends to cook...we bought her a tea set but she loves playing with the real stuffs...
when we are cleaning the house (sweeping, mopping, vacuuming), she loves making herself presence and join the "fun" as well...so we bought a cleaning set for her...whenever she sees us cleaning the house, she will take her cleaning set and help us with the housechores...she also loves watering the plant (as she can get herself wet!)...
besides doing what adults used to do, she now loves looking at picture books and able to utter simple words and make simple sentences out of them...but most of the time she prefers to play with her toys...
i dont really force her to read books all the times and have to know simple mathematics by the age of 2....at this time, kids tend to play a lot and they learn through playing with their toys...as parents, we need to be creative on how to instill the interest on learning new things....outings can broaden their perspectives in life as they can learn through seeing new things and experience new adventures....

when my Jihan was small, we tend to feed her during meal times...everybody helped to feed Jihan...by she was about 9 months, we bought her a highchair so that she can have her meals together with us...and we started to train her how to feed herself...

then she took a piece of her diaper and said the her adik, "Adik belak. basuh, basuh. Pakai pampers!" (You just pass your motion. Wash and wear pampers). HAHAHA! that was more hillarious!
on a second thought, is she ready for a little brother or sister? ; )
