Erin Eas­ton

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - PEOPLE -

BE­ING a mum is tak­ing it to the next level, she is a lit­tle mini-me and has a lit­tle per­son­al­ity like mine and there are a few things which are sim­i­lar to my hus­band James.

It was chal­leng­ing to start with but af­ter a month or two it gets eas­ier and es­tab­lish­ing a sleep­ing rou­tine - un­til you get that hap­pen­ing it is very hard, but I would not change it for any­thing.

Just watch­ing Kayla grow and de­velop, when they are new­born they cry, sleep and eat and when they get older they start to smile and in the morn­ing they are happy to see you and it is nice. They change at this stage, con­stantly grow­ing and chang­ing and to­day she rolled over for the first time and got stuck there, she was not happy about it, ev­ery day is some­thing new.

When I was due with Kayla, I was a lit­tle bit wor­ried about liv­ing up here in the Dain­tree es­pe­cially when James was at sea work­ing for the day, but I ended up go­ing over­due a cou­ple of weeks and was booked in, so we had a date.

I told my hus­band I ex­pect a present on Kayla’s be­half for Mother’s Day, it will be in­ter­est­ing to see what he comes back with.

I can­not wait un­til she gets older, I’m look­ing for­ward to the tod­dler years.”
