From Monkey to Marshmallow Human

Lexa has grown. She no longer looks like a monkey and her face has really puffed out to a human marshmallow shape. She is pulling the scale at a whopping 4.9kg…

The best part about Lexa right now…she is finally smiling. Not the smile we used to get when she was farting or having a nice poo while sitting on you. This is the real deal I find you the funniest thing in the whole wide world and you are the best thing I’ve seen all day. I think she even smiles wider when I laugh at her toothless smile.


She has her daddy wrapped around her little finger already. Whatever she does, daddy is right there.

Feeding time still sounds like a feeding frenzy of a pack of hyenas. We also figured out that Tommee Tippee bottles work the best with her. It seals better and she has less wind. Plus she seems to be lactose intolerant – so formula switch happening this week.

The one thing she has really taken a liking to is the Tiny Love mobile. I think it only has 3 tunes and it is driving my husband nuts, but the minute the music starts or it starts to turn she looks at it. The mobile has a frog, bird and a bee, you can check it out here.

She has had another immunisation this week and first paediatrician visit. I don’t like hospitals or doctors so my dear old hubby had to accompany us.

When will she see the beach for the first time? Soon, very soon. I’m actually very disappointed that she hasn’t been in the sea yet.

I am a Johannesburg based freelance writer, social media manager - and of course share bits from my life with you on this blog. We have 2 kids through surrogacy and 3 black cats.
