Amir's Assessment


Yesterday, both hubby and I were called to the nursery to discuss on Amir's assessment so far. ASSESSMENT?? I know. As small as yet to be 6 months old baby. Both of us are looking forward to the assessment.


On the very day, we we told that Amir is a little behind in his development. He is suppose to crawl or at least show the sign of crawling by now. The reason being is maybe due to he doesnt had enouth time on the floor to explore by himself. He definitly knows how to control his parents so that the parents picked him up.


Crawling is a big milestone for babies. It is extremely important step. And according the peads and the school teachers, it is not good if your baby skip crawling. Crawling is a step that involves focus, balancing, and fine motor skill development. I'll blog about what are the exercises that can help crawling later.


Meanwhile I leave you with a picture of Amir master crawling on 4 at the age of 8 months

Abu Ubaidah Al Jarrah: Pemegang Amanah Ummat

"..setiap ummat ada pemegang amanah, dan pemegang amanah ummat ini adalah abu ubaidah al-jarrah.."

Ketika saya mendengar hadis ini, ketika masih mengandungkan Amir. Saya terus jatuh cinta dengan Abu Ubaidah. Around that time, Ustazah sarankan untuk banyak membaca kisah pejuang-pejuang islam ketika mengandung. Agar anak yang dikandung itu mendapat semangat dan berakhlak seperti pejuang-pejuang islam. Dan saya terus dapatkan buku 60 kisah sahabat dari pustaka salam.
Dan ketika saya menbaca kisah Abu Ubaidah ibnul Jarrah. Cinta saya semakin mendalam. Kisah bagaimana Abu ubaidah membunuh ayahnya sendiri di Badar sehingga turun ayat mengenainya. Yang lebih meruntun jiwa, Abu Ubaidah yang mencabut mata perisai dari pipi Rasulullah dengan menggunakan gigi. Bukti cinta yang tulus dan tak berbelah baginya kepada Rasul Allah itu. Kisah-kisah beliau dengan umar.... its just makes my heart melt.
"Amir bin Abdullah atau lebih dikenali sebagai Abu Ubaidah Al Jarrah."
Dan selepas itu saya mencadangkan kepada suami untuk menamakan permata di dalam kandungan itu. AMIR. He actually did not give any positive indication. Until 2 days after he was born.
"Abang nak namakan dia AMIR"
