She's just about bigger than the bear now!!

Current Size: 0

(Use the online converter if you would like to work it out in pounds and inches.)

I can not believe how much Kayla has grown!! Not just in size, but in maturity too! A lot has happened in her 5th month actually! It is probably the most eventful so far but it sux because I haven't been able to capture any of it on camera coz my videos no longer work! booo! I'll have to see if I can borrow Dad's camera for a week so I can try and capture this list of things...

*Kayla Rolling over.
*Kayla going crazy in the Jolly Jumper.
*Kayla's Hilarious Giggle,
*Kayla's non stop Babbling.
*Kayla grabbing everything in sight.
*Kayla Singing.
*Kayla's clever thinking.
*Kayla blowing raspberries.
*Kayla lifting her arms out to be picked up.
*Kayla's cheeky personality! ... and I'm sure there will be many more to come.

I'll make that my mission for my next post.

First of all - she got her first TOOTH!!! Well it isn't all the way through yet but a little tooth has cut through on her right side on the bottom! She's been a little grizzly through the teething but it actually hasn't been that bad. She's a tough little thing and can handle just about anything! She's quite the brave little girl!

She's a real wriggler now too and has had a few bumps to the head this month because she just wont keep still! A couple of times I'll be carrying her into a room and she has got so excited and thrown her head back causing it to smack on the door frame!! I'll expect her to start cracking up in pain - but the little boof head thinks it's so funny and lets out a big giggle! So now I have to guard her head when ever I'm walking into a room!

Changing her is a lot harder now coz she wriggles around on the change table and just wants to grab everything! She can grab hold of the side of the change table, and pull herself from her back to her belly in an instant and somehow Mummy has managed to put her nappy on back to front!! lol! She's a cheeky monkey!

She kind of said her first word a few weeks ago and it wasn't Mama or Dada!! She was at Nanny and Poppys at the time so I missed it - but apparently she was watching the TellyTubbies when the character LaLa said "LaLa dance" and then Kayla repeated the word "LaLa". SO BUMMED that I missed it!! But it wont be long before she will be yapping away! (She does that now - just not in English yet lol.)

She likes to sing too, she's been doing this for months but I keep forgetting to mention it in every post! Every night when I put her to bed - I sing her a lullaby, and she joins in by moaning and humming away! It's so cute! Sometimes she'll wake up in the middle of the night and start singing herself back to sleep. Dan has sometimes mistaken it for a meowing cat! LOL!

Her giggles are hilarious now and very contagious!! She use to be a little sensitive and would get scared easily like when Dan would playfully blow a raspberry on her belly she would totally FREAK out! The bottom lip would start quiverring - followed with a big cry and we could just not calm her down quickly enough! But now she's even cheekier than we are and loves to play rough and giggles her little head off at everything! I can just imagine her laughing her head off anytime she gets in trouble when she is older! lol.

She's even learnt to blow her own raspberries now! I never thought I would be so proud of my baby for making a fart sound lol! But a few weeks ago one morning she kept screwing up her face like she was constipated and sticking out her tongue like she had a horrid taste in her mouth! I couldn't figure it out all day and didn't know what was going on with her.

But then by the end of the day she did it again but this time she managed to blow a raspberry as she poked her tongue out! You should have seen the look on her face - she was so thrilled that she had finaly mastered it and I realized that she had been trying this whole time to blow a raspberry (just like we do to her!) It was hilarious!!

Her clever thinking is really showing through now, you can just about tell what she is thinking just by watching her. Nanny gave her her first rusk biccy (for teething) and as soon as she grabbed it she went to put it straight in her mouth but it went straight into the eye! But instead of continuing to poke it at her face and hope for the best, she stopped, looked hard at the biccy, thought hard about where her mouth is and then ever so slowly moved it towards her mouth and then hit bullseye! She has been doing it ever since... such a clever little cookie!

She's certainly proving to be a very fast learner!

She's almost sitting up by herself, but her heavy head weighs her down a little and she topples over in no time! She's such a chubba though - so I'm not suprised!!

But my favourite thing so far has been her learning to reach out for cuddles. It has been only a recent thing that I have never noticed before - but a few days ago I had her in the play table and she was getting a bit cranky, so I walked over to her. As soon as she saw me, she propped up gave me a big grin and lifted her arms up straight at me like she wanted to be picked up! It was such a heart melter and I couldn't resist! But now she does it all the time and Mummys back is getting sore!!! lol! I still can't say no though - it really is very adorable!

OK well I think I've covered everything for this month! If not I'll bring it up in the next post.

Oh! By the way... I reached my first goal weight of 56KGs the DAY that Kayla turned 5months! I was 56Kgs on my wedding day... so that's a big goal for me! But I wanted to lose another 2Kgs just so I have a few extra kilos to play with. (But I haven't weighed myself since then coz the scales need new batteries lol!) So YAY me!!
