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.”
