Meet my baby Su’aad Benjamin, (meaning good fortune)

My rainbow baby after almost 9 years. I never thought I would ever have another baby after my son, I even gave EVERYTHING away.  Boy was I wrong.  I had to buy everything all over again from pram to car seat.  Luckily my inlaws have a Family Cot that everyone has used, even my husband.

I still can’t believe I have 3 children. So unreal.  I’m still trying to get used to it.

Photography Class

Oh My Word! It has been a while since I blogged. It has been hectic for a while, but I’m back. I have decided to give my baking and catering more of my attention, and have resigned my job and focussed more on my family and the things I love.

I have been doing a few short courses but the class that I loved the most was the Photography class at RLabs . It was so enjoyable to learn something new as I loved taking photos, but didnt realise everything that went into taking the perfect picture.

The class was presented by Ricky Judah Johson, a very inspiring man who loves to help people in his community. He gave me so much inspiration and made me want to purchase a camera of my own and just start taking photos to capture all my and maybe even someone elses memories.

He owns his own photography business called RJPhotography and I guarantee you wont be disappointed as he takes the most beautiful pics.

I love making cakes and seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they receive it.

When I found out I was pregnant with Mugamad Saadiq, it was very unexpected and unplanned. Sakeenah was still a baby and I wasn’t sure how I would cope. When I went for a scan at the Gynaecologist, they actually said that he was a twin, there were two separate sacs but the one was empty, meaning that I had lost that baby.  Saadiq has so much energy, sometimes I cant even keep up with him, but I would totally worry if he was too quiet.

I love my lil minions and wouldn’t trade them for anything, even though they drive me insane at times, but like a friend of mine always tells me, ITS THEIR JOB

This is my little ray of sunshine. Always smiling and very enthusiastic. Behind this beautiful face lies the diagnosis of Lichen Sclerosis. She has been having problems with repeated bladder infection for years and has had E coli probably 5 times in her almost 7 years, and now we finally got the diagnosis that it all stems from the Lichen Sclerosis. She is doing much better due to the treatment that she has been on. May Allah grant her to grow up to be a good Muslim girls and always follow the straight path.
