Kahlara weighs about 20lbs now! Yeah!!! She is starting to get up a wee bit earlier…although I know I am lucky with her getting up at 730am..would love to go back to 830am..but oh well!
She is starting to point to things that she wants and seems to understand more words we say. “No” being one of them. With the sun staying out, we get out of the house a lot so we don’t get too hot. If we need a real cool down we head to the mall…ahhhhh…air conditioning!
Her birthday party was great and thank you everyone who was able to make it and for the gifts she received! Mama went a bit crazy on how many people were invited but hey the 1st birthday only happens once, right? She is having a blast with all the toys she got and will soon be modeling the clothing.
Unfortunately, we had to go to the hospital recently with what we think was a viral infection. I guess it was the foot,mouth and hand viral infection that had been going around. Kahlara got her 1st blood test done..glad to have that done quickly. She was screaming and Gord and I were holding her down to keep her still. But she got through it! She had quite a high temperature for 4 days and then broke out in a rash all over. You could tell it took a toll on her..she was not the same person she usually is. But as the week went by, she started to feel much better and started laughing,dancing and running around the house again!
She is doing quite well now. She enjoys Mama reading books to her. That is her fave activity right now.
