Ris, she's just a 6 weeks' zigot. Don't be cruel to the little smallest thing like what you always did to the ants. Love your sister, okay Ris? Now, let Mummy hug hug you.
Will you love me like you love me now?
I will always love you. But now you are my anak perak, your little sister took your place as anak emas now.
No sayang, all my babies are anak emas. Let Mummy hug hug you.
No Mummy, I have mixed feelings now. Let me sulk for awhile.

Watching you grow is the most amazing and exciting experience of my motherhood. I still remembered the first hour we were together, your tiny little eyes watching me while I nursed you. I still felt the surprise when Bapak said “She, baby girl-lah!” I still watched your development videos, how hard for you to lift up your head when you are three months, how funny when you smiled back when we smiled at you when you were two months, how silly I was to make you laugh when you first laughed, how you loved to bathe since day one, but now my little miss, you are One. Oh how the time flies! Time, please don’t fly, please just walk.
Now you are one. Whatever your age is, you are always my baby. So Iris, here are the milestones for your Year One.
You have 6 teeth-3 up front, 3 bottom front.
Shake your head when people say “No, no, no!”
Dance to music.
You love books! You can spend ‘reading’ books for hours!
You love to open and shut doors and drawers.
Feed self in a very messy way! I have to clean up the floor every day.
Climb stairs a lot! You can climb 15 steps in 3 minutes; I guess Hussain Bolt will lose over you!
You love shower time. You’ll throw a tantrum once I get you out from the bathtub.
You get really mad when other people hug Mummy, even Bapak! I quote Bapak “Iris nak bolot Mummy sorang je.”
You will cry your heart out when anybody hurt Mummy.
You’ll stop playing or reading if you see someone else hurt me and you’ll crawl to save me. I love this so very much! He he.
You sit a lot.
You stand a lot.
You can clap your hands.
You point to the right person when people ask you “Mana Bapak?”
You’ll point to your photo when someone asks you “Mana Iris?”
You can’t point when people ask you “Mana Mummy?” but you crawl to the right body part when Mummy asks you “Susu! Susu!”
If you want something especially food, you will say “Bak! Bak!”
You look up when I say “Where’s the lizard?”
You are an animal lover; you love cats, lizards, birds and fish.
You don’t like formula milk; but you drink oat and Ribena.
You scream if people just grab things in your hand, but you will give it nicely if they say “Saya nak.”
You share your toys, but not your Mummy.
That's all I can remember. I can’t wait to see what you can do in the next few months. Er, perhaps you’ll play with little brother.
The party began after the terawih. Anya, Pak Su Faiz acted the AJK Persediaan, Ayah Wan and Anyon acted the FOC photographers, Nek Ma acted the mak andam, Auntie Yasmin and Auntie Farhah acted the AJK Persembahan, and you? You are the real birthday girl! Oh, allow Mummy to cry.

Bapak, are you proud of me?
Thursday, August 13, 2009
Happy Birthday, Bapak! I love you berry berry much! Muach! I can make muach sound now. I'll show you in the next two weeks okay Bapak! Muach.
Bapak, Mummy said this "Abang, I miss the teamwork". What teamwork, Bapak?

Sue: Kakak, apa kata Sue jaga Iris malam ni?
Me: Oh cuba-lah! Tapi Kakak rasa Sue tak akan berjaya. (Har-har, awal-awal sudah rasa reluctant!)
S: Tak apa, kita cuba dulu.
M: Tapi sure Iris nangis. Malam nak tidur Iris mesti kena minum susu Kakak. Dia tak minum susu lain.
S: Tak apa. Sue try Ribena. Kalau tak boleh, Sue try Oat.
M: Tapi Kakak tak pernah tidur tanpa Iris.
S: Sebenarnya siapa yang tak boleh tidur ni?
M: Okay, tapi kalau Sue rasa tak boleh jaga Iris, call Kakak. Nanti Kakak ambil.
S: Okay beres.
M: Okay, (tak) beres.
My aunt took her 10 minutes ago; it was 6:00PM, August 4th, 2009. I bet Sue will call me at 9:00PM, same day, same year. I'm waiting.
Premise 2: IPTA X is infected with H1N1.
Conclusion: The teacher already went home and rest and take a week off!
Conclusion 2: I am the teacher.
Conclusion 3: I love math but not ‘Penaakulan Mantik’.

Iris, Mummy feel bad.
I just called Nek Ma and she said Bapak is sick. He slept all day long and did not eat well. He got running nose.
Like you Mummy?
Great lovers do get sick at the same time, eh Mummy?
So the black attendant man at the pump station is your lover, Mummy?
Er, no Ris.
Have you called Bapak, Mummy? Poor him, we have been so rude to Bapak lately.
I think so, Ris. Mungkin aku pernah merasakan rindu...
Yes Mummy, tapi tak pernah sedalam ini. Right Mummy?
Ye, sayang. Let's call Bapak and say how much we miss him.
Bapak, we miss you and get well soon!

Come back and sing to me, me, me,
Come on and sing it out now, now,
Come and sing it out to me, yeah
In my place, in my place,
Were lines that I couldn’t change?
I was lost oh yeah,

You are my darling.
You are my strength.
You are my half.
