Holly Smokes. 7 months? really?
let’s see here…
7 has brought us lots of things-
solids: bananas, avocado, pears, prunes, apples, squash, peas, carrots, potatoes, and sweet potatoes. We had to trick you at first to get you to open your mouth, so independent needing to use the spoon yourself. Those smart gals at the daycare figured out if they gave you cheerios or kixs that you would open up as well. it is hysterical watching you chase the Os around the table. you love it.
tooth: your first tooth has sprouted. bottom right hand side. its a sharp little bugger. you haven’t bitten me yet so that’s a plus! We realized that this was probably why we had several restless nights in a row two weeks ago nothing a little Tylenol before bedtime didn’t help.
sitting: for the most part you are sitting up all on your own. You are even starting to launch forward a little bit to get toys that are out of your reach. you are changed kid with this new found independence. Watch out if you flop onto your back though, you can’t get up and it really ticks you off! Being on your tummy still isn’t your gig, but you can roll over if you really want to- sitting is where it’s at these days though.
talking (babbling): you have always been a noisy one, but your babbling is great these days. For about a week all you would say was, “da, da, da” then it switched and you would only say, “ma, ma, ma” and then the next week we had moved on to, “ba-ba, baba”. Now you just mix it up and jibber jabber all the time. The funniest is in the early morning when you practice in your crib – I love waking up to that sound.
ears: unfortunately you got an ear infection this month too. we had to put you on the dreaded pink stuff. wow did that bring childhood right back to me when I opened that bottle of antibiotics. Let’s hope your ears are better then mine were!
travel: we took our first weekend out of town this month. Over the hill for a wedding. You were beyond amazing thru the whole thing. At dinner you sat and played, entertaining yourself while we ate and visited for just over an hour. Beyond any of our expectations.
as always it is amazing to watch you change and grow. we are so glad you are here!
