Assalamu alaykum.

I was staring at iBaby tonight, while he was sleeping in his bassinet, and I cannot believe how big he is getting. Mashaallah he is SO cute and cuddly, and ROUND! His head is a perfect round melon with black peach fuzz. His nose is delicious, and his lips are sublime. His feet are irresistible, and his toes are like tic-tacs; tiny, edible and sweet. I cant stand the cute, chubbing-up cheeks and his sweet little chin. Oh and the thighs! He has totally filled out his stretchy feety pajamas (with little baseballs and bats on them), and he looks like a little sausage link. I can't believe this weekend he will be 4 weeks old inshaallah. Subhanaallah, he is just amazing. I think he is going to be a tall boy. May Allah bless him always, Ameen.

Am I biased?!?!?!?! *wink*

Maybe Ill do a photo-essay. That will take time, but maybe I can manage it when my husband is off. Don't know. I'm not sure how I/hubby feel about posting his photos on the internet. I'm so anxious to share his pic with you tempting. (I don't feel conflicted islamically about photography- its the whole internet thingy that causes me hesitation). What are your opinions on this? Please comment!

Until then- Ma Salaama,

iMuslimah & Co.

Salaams Sis:

You can move to WordPress where you can do protected posts.

Or, if you don't want to move your entire blog, just set up an iBaby blog at WordPress and invite us all over :)

tic-tac toes! I love it! There's only one thing sweeter than a new baby: a new mommy!

PS - it's a small world you know. People you know may just come across this blog and see the baby.

My husband actually saw people he knew at the Hajj!!! (not associated with his Hajj group!)

Then there's the whole evil eye thing :(

Miss Muslimah said...

Yeah,I gotta agree with Safiyyah.Dont know if you believe in the evil eye ...but there's also alot of sickos and weirdos out there that you DONT want, seeing your precious baby.Making a private blog @ wordpress for ibaby is a great idea.....

Assalam-alaikam Sis iMuslimah,
I know exactly what your dilemma is. I have put pic of my kids before on my blog, but I am very wary of it. I don't mind with little babies as they all look the same to me (gorgeous), but the older they get, the more consciousof this problem I am. Better half also asked me to maintain anonymity with my blog and alhtough there are lots of people who know about my blog they are people I know rather than the general public. Although having said that woul be great to see ibaby's pic's. Maybe the private blog is the best idea.

Hopefully a halal sausage link ;)

This is such a wonderful time. Enjoy it imuslimah because time flies so quickly. I was just looking at my little man. It seems like just yesterday we took him home from the hospital. In about 2 months he will be 5 years old and starting kindergarten. They sure do grow fast!

I'd love to see some baby pics. I like the idea of ibaby blog on wordpress. Don't forget to send me an invite.
