Our Daily Dose of Happiness

Yup! He's the one! The one who fully responsible bringing the happiness to a higher level in our family! Hello little Mr Crawler!! He challenges me and abang to become a better person everyday ... To become a better parents for him, to make this world a better place for him to live .. He is a God sent angel in in our little family ... We thank God everytime we remeber you, Gideon!!

Bah bah bah bah bah in Gide's dictionary means "Hi Daddy! You're home!!!" It also can be mean "Mommy come and play with me!!" .. Our house is full with bah bah bah bah bah lately .. and it's like music to our ear! Best song ever!! Ngalahin punyanya One Direction! Teteup ya harus bawa berondong - berondong tersebut HAHAHAHA ...

It has been nearly 9 months since this little champs joining our KFC troop and yes he had his first fries today and can see that he likes it! That's only the introduction, my son .. wait 'till you get the real deal! The chicken skin!! Beuh!! And when that moment come, I'll be happily say "Welcome to the real food journey!" HOHOHO .. Basically he always give us the look of can-you-share-your-food-with-me while we're enjoying our meal but again most of the times we have to turn that look down by saying, "Sabar ya de, .. Sekarang belom boleh! Ntar kalo udah boleh pasti mami bagi deh" .. Few seconds later he'll be happily munching his biscuit that we offer to him .. He must be forget about the bakut teh! HAHAHA ..

It's more than pleasure to see him grow healthy and happy all this while .. Yes he can be cranky when he's sleepy or hungry but rather than that you'll see him smiling all the time! Giggling too sometimes! And stoning most of the times! HAHAHA ..

We're not the best parents in the world obviously, .. We do mistakes, we feel clueless sometimes,... and I guess there's no such thing as a perfection in the parenthood either but we know that we're doing our best for Gide! God has entrusted Gide to us and we feel honored to guide him to become one kindhearted gentleman in the future .. Ladies, you better watch out!

"Rai, sekarang aku ngerti rasanya kalo ada orang tua yang concern banget in this case mungkin ibu ya soal pasangan anaknya .. I mean aku yang hamil, nyusuin, bangun tengah malem, .. nyuapinin dia, .. terus ntar ada cewe yang mau jadi istrinya! Oh yeah! I'll teach him how to choose the right woman. Bisa gw jutekin kali ya kalo cewenya ga jelas!"

"Wow! It's going to be tough for Gide's future girlfriend! Emaknya sih bisa bitchy abis! HAHAHA .. I can imagine that!"

"Bisa ntar aku jadi cewe - cewe SCTV terus yang bilang situ oke?! HAHAHA"

Sorry that I'm not sorry but yeah I'll do whatever I need to do to make sure he's married to the right woman! Yaelah si Gillian!!! Ini aja anaknya lagi baru belajar buat berdiri udah mikirin menantu! Kejauhan woi!!! Pikirin dulu toilet training anaknya baru mikir yang laen! Ya maap ya, namanya juga sayang anak! But now I know the "worry" feeling in every parents heart when they decide to "let go" their children to somebody else' hands ... 

Gide, we pray that you may grow with a fear of God .. become a person who loves God and others. Let His mercy and goodness follow you wherever you go and as He has showered you with his mercy, you will be the extension of His hands to show mercy and kindness to others, just like your middle name Eleos which means mercy. We're telling you that this world is not going to be easy for you to deal with but we always got your back, son! Know that you are loved by many ... 

Be brave! Explore the world! Travel far! Dream big! Make mistakes! Accept challenges! Be real! Share love! Smile widely! Work hard! Play hard! Pray hard! Belive! Obey! Endure! Live your life!

Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?
    the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior’s fistful of arrow are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children!
Your enemies don’t stand a chance against you;
    you’ll sweep them right off your doorstep
Psalm 127 :3-5 MSG
