Another special day for us all, Ayu turns 17 today. My first born... I have to say it, she was a tough one. Waited all night in pain for her to pop out. She was a big baby, weighed more than 3.5 kg, imagine that (... don't even try).
Ayu is very special, a very obedient daughter and a very good sibling to her sisters & brother. I've said it before, but I'm gonna say it again. I am a very proud mother to my Ayu.
Before she came to the world, I couldn't wait to name my first daughter Zulaika. But we were still looking for that first name that starts with the letter A. And I have a thing with old folks' names, they're unique & simple. I wanted to name her Anum Zulaika, but Nek Hajjah Siti (abang's late grandmother) didn't agree. There's one movie called 'Dang Anum', let's just say Dang Anum didn't live long enough to have a family that she longed for... yeah, that was one sad movie.
So, I was talking to my grandmother on the phone one day during my confinement (the baby still has no name yet). Nek Am said, "Why don't you just name her Ayu...?". I have a cousin named Ayu and she's about my age. I didn't have to think too long, because Nek Am suggested it, and Ayu sounded sweet and simple, so we decided to name her Ayu Zulaika (with no H). Teachers spell her name 'Ayu ZulaikHa' most of the time, she would have to correct them each time.
Happy 17th Birthday Ayu sayang, mama pray that you live happily and semoga diberi keberkatan serta kebahagian di dunia & di akhirat. *hugggssss&kissessss*
