She Said, "No!"

It wasn’t long ago that my little girl was once a helpless baby that I held in my arms despite the pain after the C-Section and would continuously visit her everyday in the NICU to breastfeed her. It was a sacrifice that I had to go through since she was born with infection and had to stay at NICU for the antibiotic treatment. She was so small and so angelic that made me want to see her everyday.

It was still vivid on my mind the first time she turned to her side exactly 15 months ago. It was like a funny moment when her cheeks was touching the bed and could hardly lie on her back again. I immediately knew that she would be a hyperactive baby.


I kept wondering what’s wrong with my lullaby and breastfeeding that won’t make her stop crying despite the music in the room. Oh she wanted the most vague position ever when she sleeps. That’s why.


When she turned one, it makes me pleased every time I see her twirling her lola like dance that seems like there is nobody observing her. When she eats and places every food on top of her head amuses me with delight. Every time a mobile trader would pass by and yells “baloooot”, she answers as if her screams can be heard.

Time seems to fly so fast that she is now able to walk but still wobbly and exactly knows now what she wants. She shakes her head every time she doesn’t like some thing. From the angelic little girl now she is a temper throwing tantrum baby girl who whines every time. She would stomp her feet and roll over and over like a log inside her playpen. She also feigns to be crying to get my attention.

It was just yesterday that I was trying to play with her by giving her milk and taking it away again and again that she finally said “NO” with conviction. J and I were both shocked that we both guffawed and she was perplexedly staring at us as to why we were both giggling.


After saying “no” she went back to play with her toys. Now my baby girl has grown. And yes, time flies so fast.
