Happy 5 months Rowena

taken 20 Sept

Rowena will be 5 months on Monday (25 Sept).Since I wont be around, I thought I will blog it now. It feels like I just blogged about her turning 4 months. Have been so busy with work the past month as we had a big event last weekend and everyone has been working day and night for it. Now that it is over, things are slowly getting back to normal.

Harvynna has been really naughty lately – her terrible 2s syndrome at her peak. She does things like running across the road in front of the babysitters house, lying down on the ground wherever she is, hitting people, hitting Rowena’s head and calling her ‘Ding dong’!!, throwing food on the floor (she pushed my bowl of cereal on the floor the other day), taking off Rowena’s clothes. When I scold her, she will say, I tell my daddy to beat you very hard’. If daddy scolds her, She will say, ‘ I tell my mummy to beat you’ or ‘ Go away, I don’t like you’. It must be a mix of terrible 2s and sibling rivalry.

Back to lil Rowena. She has not rolled over yet – she can turn to her side, though.

She is a smiling baby. She smiles all the time except when we take her photos. She will stare at the camera. By the time the camera goes, ‘Click’, the smile has disappeared.

She squeals a lot now (like a rat) and makes lots of noises. She tries to have ‘conversations’ with us and loves it when we talk to her.Rowena has not started solids as yet as we were told to start her at 6 months due to her allergies. Her allergies seem to be getting better and she does not get nappy rash anymore. Thank God for that. Her case of nappy rash used to be really really bad. It was very very red.

She is still quite bald as her hair fell off due to her cradle cap.

She loves to pull things especially Harvynna’s and mummy’s hair and drools a lot.

She stares at my mouth intently when I am eating and sticks her tongue out and moves her mouth trying to imitate me. Then she gets irritated and starts to fuss – probably because she was not offered anything!!

She seems to love sitting upright (with support, of course) and keeps looking everywhere. Looks like she will turn out to be a ‘kaki jalan’ just like her sister.

She knows her name now. When we call ‘Rowena’ she will turn to look at us.

She keeps pushing herself backwards, so we have to be very careful that she does not end up falling off the bed or from her rocking chair.

Harvynna can shake hand with my Mei Meilah, the Terrible Twos. Lol. I remember last time I too found it difficult to get a smiling pix from my girl at that age as everytime she sees the camera, she'll look dumbfounded :)
