Now, that's what I call family!

Yesterday, we had my family over for dinner. As my sister will be going back to US next week, we wanted to let Ariez and Irfan spend some time together so that Irfan would remember that he has a cousin in the far far away land.

Best chums ;-)

So this time around, they didn't bicker so much but try to adapt to each other's way. Of course still they fight over toys and their grandpa, but I can see improvement with Ariez being a bit more protective of Irfan, and Irfan trying to communicate with Ariez in his own way. Paling cute was this one moment when I wanted to wash Irfan's poop and Ariez was standing in front of the bathroom. Then Irfan called him "Aiii..aiiii" and he made the smelly gestures with his hand and wrinkled his nose in amusement kat bau taik sendiri. Then he laughed at his own wit. Haha!

Ha dua2 kerjakan tok abah sampai tarik butang baju keluar hoho

Irfan still refused to swim in the pool with abang Ariez, but he warmed up to the idea of it by sitting near the edge and splashing the water at us. Jadi lah, hopefully he'll slowly begin to love the water again. If not, rugi lah bapak awak bayar maintenance tiap2 bulan tau!

Irfan ushar line dulu kay, hiks

Ariez and mommy

The last time he came, Ariez refused to swim but this time around he dipped himself for quite long. However, I didn't get to make him slide down into the pool, I guess he's still too small for it.

See mula2 semangat nak turun but halfway, terus lari turun tangga balik. Huhu

After the kids were done playing with water, we went up to feast on the food brought by my parents and siblings. We had mee rebus, Sup Hameed with roti benggali, campur2, popia basah, nasi lemak daging nyum nyum my fave!, potato salad, custard and kuih-muih. Yes, I told you it was a feast and Irfan ate like there's no tomorrow. Haha!

And mommy of the year award goes tooooo : Mommy Nai! Cayalah kakak! hiks

Over all we had fun. Irfan rarely meets his cousins as they're all scattered everywhere from Penang to KL to Houston, so I can sense that he really appreciate time spent with any of them. Be it baby Emye (Emran), abang Ariez or Al-Arees.

Wow! That sure makes me feel old! My time has long passed by, now it's time for our kids to enjoy the occasional meet ups with cousins and the joy it brings, just like we did when we were young.

All old times are good times huh?
