OMG!! You are moving. At seven months you are well and truly on the go. You’ve learned how to ‘crawl’ in a straight line. I can’t quite believe it! It’s a bit more of a commando crawl but it gets you to where you want to be and you are pretty quick too!
Last month you were beginning to sit up and then within a week your back was straight and you looked like a little boy sitting independently, all by yourself in the middle of a room. This month we see yet another accomplishment.
Your teeth have been giving you a really tough time. It’s been keeping us awake at nights and it’s meant that you are on the nappy mat for a change quite a lot. Throughout all of it, you’ve been a pretty good boy. You haven’t grumbled too much and you’ve played happily for most of the day.
You’re learning to show affection at the moment. You seem to want to kiss and cuddle the ladies in your every day life, Annabelle, my mum and me. This mainly involves slobbering on our face but hey, you’re only seven months old so I think you can be forgiven 😉
You’re still a determined little character. You know what you want and what you like and you are now learning the skills to get it. ‘Mmm’ definitely means you want to eat (as well as staring at anybody with food!), you raise your arms to be picked up and you turn your head to the side in your cot to signal that you are going to go to sleep.
At seven months:
- You still hate your face being wiped
- You sing a lot (well, we can only assume it is singing)
- Your hair is incredibly soft to stroke
- I love your big eyebrows!
- You’re wearing a mixture of 6-9 and 9-12 month clothes
- You also wear size 4 nappies
- I’ve forgotten how much you weigh but you are still on the 50th percentile
Big cuddles and kisses from your Mummy xxx
