I have two wonderful boys, the older one is Ilyas. He is MashaAllah 3 years old now and is a very curious boy. It is as if his questions never end! He loves cars and has a whole collection in his little car box. Even his room is decorated accordingly. He has a car bed, a side table made of 2 tires stacked on top of each other with a flat round table top placed on top. He loves to watch Zaky and Baba Ali. Some of his other favorite activities are going to the park and eating bananas. These days he is working on putting his own socks and clothes on all by himself. Although, sometimes he feels like he could use some help. He is practising going to the washroom all by himself too, he calls me when he is done. His best friend is his brother Idrees but sometimes Idrees is his not- so- best friend. He can't wait until Idrees grows up so they can play and run together. Another good friend of Ilyas is his cousin Zayna. She lives in Windsor but "pretend Zayna' sometimes plays with him and Idrees. Zayna is 2 and a half years old.
Idrees is 10 months old MashaAllah. He is much more vibrant and full of energy. He cannot seem to sit still for more than 2 minutes and needs someone to play with. When he wants something he throws tantrums untill he gets what he wants! We are working on the discipline. Idrees recently learned what the purpose of lids are. He takes them off of boxes and puts them on again, the whole process is repeated 20 some times until he moves on to the next activity. Among the words he recognizes and says are Allah. mama, papa and some other sounds. He has also figured out what "no" means. When he is told not to do anything with "NO" he gets very upset and will start crying. He loves to throw his sippy cup and all sorts of things from his high chair just because he feels like he is full and naturally to him they don't belong on the table but on the floor. He learned how to crawl last month and is constantly on the move. Mashallah he really cant sit still!
Jazakallah khair for sharing these adorable pictures! I cannot get over how cute both boys look matching Mashallah. I loved reading about Ilyas and his new found independence. He definitely seems to understand that the big brother role does not come easy but is adjusting so well. It was really entertaining reading about Idrees. Especially his full of energy and spunky personality, Mashallah. May Allah bless them both and put love, friendship and mercy in their hearts for one another and may He make them amongst the righteous, Ameen.
