Why now Mummy? Why?

Mummy, I am not ready to have Maureen as my little sister. Or perhaps Edrus as my little brother. Why this soon Mummy why? Now I know what teamwork you always said to Bapak. Mummy, you are so selfish. I know you want 8 babies, but why this soon, Mummy?

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.

Really, Mummy?

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.

This is Iris when she sulks.

Why Mummy why?

From Day One to Year One

I am one year old. Call me a senior.

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.

Party! Party!

We had a pre-celebration of your first birthday on 30th August 2009 at Nek Ma's house. It was just a small party with a cake and a birthday girl who turned One on 31st August 2009. Oh, how fast the time flies, I felt like crying. A year ago, you were still kicking my tummy and a year later, we went out for shopping for your birthday party. You are growing too fast my little miss.. Allow Mummy to cry.

Went out shopping for the birthday stuff at Tesco Kota Bharu. See Auntie Yasmin at the back acting pink butterfly.

Mummy, get me this! It is only Rm19.90. No dear, it is for 3months', you are One tomorrow. Allow Mummy to weep.

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.

The party preparation by Anya and Pak Su Faiz. (Anya, you punya aroma wisel sangat harum!)

The cake

The singing.

Mummy, I'm on diet.

AJK Family

Nek Ma and Iris

The guests

Mummy, what's on my face? I can't see, I can't see!

The birthday girl
That's the small story of the small party of the big girl. We will have a real birthday party with a theme on this coming Hari Raya. Mummy is still thinking of the party theme. Idea anyone? Anyway, Selamat Ulangtahun yang Pertama bayi kecilku yang sudah satu tahun. Oh, izinkan Mummy tersedu.
Happy Birthday my dear.

Free Nursery

Susu time!

Iris managed the free nursery on Bapak's birthday.

Bapak, are you proud of me?

Free tuition everyone? Hi, I'm Cikgu Iris.

Eh, sedap-lah mee Mama Kakak Adrianna masak. Mummy I pandai masak bubur je. I dah boring actually makan bubur, dah 5 bulan asyik makan bubur je.

Lunch hour! Thanks Anyon for helping me out.
These are some of the photos I managed to snap on that free nursery day, ironically on my Firdausku Sorang's 28th birthday. I had a thought on the previous night to text Bapak 28 birthday wishes, but it turned out I can only texted him once! I am a good sitter, Iris is the best!

Selamat Hari Lahir, Bapak!

It is August 12th! Bapak, happy 28th birthday! We share the same birthday month. I wish you the happiest birthday! I'm sorry I cannot write much, because I am acting nursery manager today. I am helping Mummy with another two babies. Our babysitter takes a week leave. She's in Sarawak now. I'll ask Mummy to upload our activities' photos tomorrow!

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?

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

I miss you already.

My aunt had a plan. I had a conversation with her. This is the translated version.

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.

Thank you H1N1. (For selected reason only)

I'm hurt, Mummy.

Yesterday Anya and I went to pasar malam. And to our surprise, we saw this Chinese uncle sell lovely colorful Luna fish. But there were more than 36 Luna colors. And guess what, we chose Electric Blue for you! Yay! And double yay when it cost us just RM3! Let the pictures do the talking.

I'm a celebrity! Get me out of here!

Iris, Mummy bought you a fish. Now go play with him.
Mummy, can I call him Blooey?

Omigosh! I forgot, it's my dinner time!

Mummy, I want to eat Blooey. I'm hungry.

Mummy please. Open this bekas cendol for me.

This is art! I should put it in!

Okay Mummy, I behave. I will not eat this Blooey.

Good girl, if you behave, Mummy'll buy you Funky Fuschia fish next week.

Mummy, your problem is not my problem. You sick missing Bapak, but don't take this Blooey from me!

Mummy, you sick!

I'll get you, Blooey. Don't worry.

You cut me bleeding, Mummy.

Guilt leads to good.

Mummy, I feel bad after what we did to Bapak. See I'm crying, but I won't let people see my tears..

Iris, Mummy feel bad.

Why Mummy?

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?

Ye, sayang.

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!

Mummy, let us hurt Bapak!

Mummy, don't be sad. I heard you sang In My Place by Coldplay over and over again today. I heard it yesterday too, and the day before yesterday. You sang your heart out when it comes to this line 'Come back and hug me'. Mummy, let me hug you! I know you are very very sad because you miss Bapak a lot. Let us sing together, as for now I can remember every line of that sad clinical depressed lyrics.

Singing, ooh, ohh,
Please, please, please,
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,
Oh yeah!

You know that your sweet darling will not be In Your or My Place anywhere soon. Just admit it Mummy, you already made a pact with Bapak over 5 storey’s bungalow in the next 10 years, so be patient my dear Mummy. Now let us eat out, I don’t feel like eating alphabet pasta and rice porridge tonight, I feel like hanging out and drink strawberry milk shake! Let us paint Kuantan town red Mummy yeah! Let us pray that Bapak will have time to visit Mummy's blog and I'm definitely sure he will be very jealous seeing our happy moments together. Let forget Bapak and let our new hair down!

Mummy, don't snap when I am not smiling, remember, our mission is to get Bapak get really hurts!

Bapak, Mummy wish you were a painter and forget that 5 storey's bungalow.

It's yummy I swear!

Mummy, forget the mission, give me that shake!

Bapak, did you hurt?

Mummy brought me to the bookstore.

Mummy, I'm sure Bapak will sing In My Place too.

Bapak, I'm sorry to be rude to you. But Mummy said it is okay to hurt people we love. Did you hurt Bapak? If yes, please call Mummy. If no, please call Mummy.

For you are my Iris.

You are my painting.

You are my sweetheart.

You are my darling.

You are my strength.

You are my half.

You are my sun, my star.

You are my world.

You are my book.

You are my everything. Everything.

(Thank you When Mummy sad and miss Bapak a lot, Mummy will do only two things, browsing through and shop for stationeries. Mummy just fancied my eyes of Iris flowers in
