An update while Aqil is distracted

I love being able to get on my laptop for 15-minute spurts throughout the day. But I introduced Aqil to the magical world that is YouTube and now he will request his favorite videos (baby signing videos about animals) whenever he spots me using the laptop. I'm sick to death of the videos, but he's learned SO MANY words and signs this way, it's just fascinating!

His vocabulary mostly consists of animal names right now. He's not that interested in much else *LOL* But he's starting to say things like "sit", "shishi", and the occasional "mama" and "dada". I'd prefer if he learned words that were more functional than animal names, buuuut I'll take what I can get ;) At least he understands a lot of words and simple instructions. That, in itself, helps out a lot.

I'm at that point in pregnancy where I just can't get comfortable enough to sleep. It is a cruel joke that I wake up several times a night when Aqil has finally started sleeping through the night!! I've been having strange dreams too. For the past week, I've been dreaming about giving birth. Every time its been at home, pain-free and I'd be running around afterwards like nothing came out of me. How I wish that would happen!

2009 is shaping up to be an amazing year. Aqil is going to gain a little brother and possibly TWO new aunts! That's right, my brother's engaged :D The date has not been set just yet but I am already super-excited and sooooo happy for them. Farhan's brother also just got engaged, and plans to wed by the end of the year. Its a very exciting time for our family :D PLUS, my new baby will be born in the year of the Ox, just like me.

Ok then, I had to leave my laptop at least five times while writing this...and now Aqil is requesting his "chicken" video on YouTube. LOL. Will update more soon!

get him an ipod touch and load it up with videos. It'll keep him entertained for hours. That's what I do. :)
