The Nanny Named Who?

I have big problem now. Bigger than me. Bigger than Cik Iris. I have problem finding the nanny. Why everyone would love to work at KFC? Why do they love to be couch potatoes than learn new language-the baby language? Where are you lurking the good nanny? Oh, please come out and take care of Cik Iris. She is such a doll she wont bite you. She only screams like a boy when nursing. She only wants my milk. And that's why she screams. And when she sleeps, she sleeps like a baby. So you can do whatever you like, napping or wathing telly. Please come out oh dear nanny. Please, just please.

I have problem. I cherish myself. I sang The Nanny Named Fran. That is my favorite show.

She was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens,'

Til her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes.

What was she to do? Where was she to go? She was out on her fanny...

So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door.

She was there to sell make-up, but the father saw more.

She had style! She had flair! She was there.

That's how she became the Nanny!

Who would have guessed that the girl we've described,

Was just exactly what the doctor prescribed?

Now the father finds her beguiling (watch out C.C.!).

And the kids are actually smiling (such joie de vivre!).

She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan...

The flashy girl from Flushing, the Nanny named Fran!

I have problem. shsaddh9r82082jsadkedjd02ur2108347cmyhv0ugkjf03uf. Now my keyboard has problem.

I have problem. Please help me.

So History

Things that I miss:

  1. Burping
  2. Waking up every half an hour at night to pee pee
  3. Morning sickness
  4. Food craving
  5. Swollen belly
  6. Small kicks in my tummy
  7. Itchy tummy
  8. Phone conversation with Nek Ma telling her your weekly growth. (“Mama, minggu ni baby besar timun cino doh. Minggu ni aktiviti untuk baby kena menari. Baby suko bilo dio raso swaying gitu.”)

But the thing I miss the most is: Size S me.

...ssooo history...

Daddy's Precious

You are.

A daddy’s girl and you can’t even crawl yet. It’s so wonderful to watch your relationship develop. You’ve got Bapak wrapped around your tiny little finger; you both look upon each other with such adoration. He loves you so much. He would travel from Kuantan to Kelantan just to meet you and hug you. He didn’t fail to come back to Kelantan every free weekend and brought you toys. The first person he would kiss in the morning is you, me no more. Once he holds you, he would never let you go. You love your special times with him, you trust him completely, and the bond is evident even to complete strangers.

One Little Lock

People has asked me where did you get your black soft hair, and it is definitely from my gene, the only feature you copy from me. You were born with lots of hair. But then you were only having your newborn hair until day 16 of your life because then you were getting new hairstyle; bald.

Fresh hair-Day 1

Tok Ba suggested cutting your hair with his idol, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz. Reading July’s issue of Mastika, I don’t think that idea would come true because we have to queue for hours to get Tuan Guru to cut newborns’ hair. Since you are Tok Ba’s first granddaughter, we tried to make his dream comes true.

So we get up so early in Friday morning, 15th September 2008 rushing to Tuan Guru’s place in Kota Bharu. Everyone wanted to see you with your new hairstyle so one car wasn’t enough hence we went there with two cars. The persons who escorted you were Tok Ba (he was more excited to shake hands with Tuan Guru than seeing your new hairstyle), Tok Sue, Nek Sue, Nek Mie, Kak Farhah and Kak Yasmin. It seemed like we were kidnapping you because Tok Ba drove the car quite fast in the dark and there were no cars on the road. Phew, thank God we arrived there safely at roughly 5.30 in the morning.

You and I were left all alone in the car when everybody performed Subuh prayer. It was an unforgettable moment listening to Surah read by Tuan Guru while watching you sleep in my hands. You are such a wonderful divine given by Allah to me. I also felt sad at the same time looking to your newborn hair for the last time. At first I don’t agree to cut your purely soft hair, but everybody said you would get itchy head.

When they finished Subuh prayer, Bapak and Tok Sue brought you to the place where the mencukur event is held. Seeing other parents brought their newborns, I only hope for the best, yet still prepare for the worst. And to our surprise, it only took you 20 minutes to get to Tuan Guru and you were number three in queue. So here are the shots Tok Sue managed to take while Tuan Guru cut few of your hair.

Shot 3

After the event, we went back home and once again Tok Ba drove a car like nobody business because he was so shocked he can shake hands with his idol. And that evening, you have all your hair cut off by Bapak and Tok Ba and Mummy kept on screaming to have them careful with your tiny and soft head skin. And I was busy picking up your hair to keep it in my scrapbook.

Bapak, be careful with the scissors please.

What have you done with my hair, huh?

Mummy busy picking up the leftover...haha!

Final touch up from Tok Ba

So here you are with your new hairstyle. You still look adorable without hair-lah, sayang.

Mummy, please cover my head with the ribbon please.

This is your newborn hair. So be grateful once you grew up. Don't curl or straighten it. (Aha!)

One little lock


Whatever my sleeping style is...

I sleep the best when someone holds me...

I-ya-ya! I got new toy, Squid The Squeaker! Thank you Mummy!

Tiny Bracelet

Nek Ma bought you your first bracelet for Hari Raya. It is as beautiful and adorable as you are. At first she bought you another bracelet, but it was too big for your tiny little wrist. So she went to another store with Anya looking for a perfect bracelet for you. And here it is a perfect gorgeous bracelet on a gorgeous little girl. It has a loceng too, and it makes wonderful sound when you move your hand. The tiny bracelet fit your wrist perfectly. Thanks to Nek Ma she always wants her girls look beautiful as she is. Iris and bracelet. So small. So beautiful. So perfect.

Iris, be careful!!! Crockie and Ellie want to steal your bracelet!
