Alhumdulillah by the grace of Allah we were blessed with a fourth child, a sweet little baby boy, masha’Allah! The girls are just smitten with him, and they compete for his attention. My friend commented that he will now have 4 moms (my 3 daughters and I), which is so true! My youngest daughter is surprisingly not jealous of her baby brother, but is actually very protective of him, and she tells me immediately if he is crying, and only wants me to hold him, not anyone else including the midwife haha. Like all pregnancies we decided to keep the gender of the baby a surprise. My midwife came to know what the gender was from the ultrasound report, but she didn’t reveal it to me. Once I had the baby she told me that the ultrasound report had said it would be a girl and she was as surprised as we were when it was a baby boy. We are content whatever the gender, all children are a blessing from Allah! The month leading up to the delivery of the baby was very difficult with me getting sick and we met some challenges at the end of the pregnany, but Alhumdulillah, praise be to Allah, everything worked out. It has been a new experience for me with a boy. Changing the diapers for one! And normally people get so excited about baby girl clothes, and I get so excited about baby boy clothes, haha. We are really enjoying this time with baby, he is getting big so fast mashaAllah! I’ll leave you with some pictures of the desserts my Mom and sister made for baby’s aqeeqah.
