Once again I am a little late in posting Daphne’s 7 month update!! Oops! I can’t believe she is 7 months – this year is going by MUCH too quickly!! We are trying to give/get lots of snuggles and squeezes, knowing that it won’t be long before she doesn’t want them anymore!! I even find it difficult to be frustrated when she is awake in the night (which is happening again – due to the fact that my milk is drying up), I am just trying to enjoy any extra time I get with her!!
Highlights for this month:
She is sitting up! She can get herself from the crawling positions to sitting and back again.
She still isn’t actually “crawling,” but can still get wherever she wants too. She is fast too!
She usually heads straight for the TV stand with the video game and dvd player!
Daphne shakes her head no – she doesn’t seem to know what it means. She just shakes it over and over and over.
She babbles constantly! If Norah or Lucy is trying to tell us something, if I’m on the phone, or if Kevin and I are talking, Daphne tries to be louder than whoever is talking. Funny! Poor Kevin – this is not going to be a quiet household!!
Daphne LOVES to be outside – we often take her outside if she is
getting fussy and that does the trick every time!!
She screams in the nursery at church. Nice, I know. We are usually there during her naptime, but she won’t sleep there. Sundays tend to be LONG days since she doesn’t get a very good nap!!
She knows her name for sure. If I am talking to someone else, Daphne will keep busy scooting and playing, but as soon as you say, “Daphne,” she stops and looks.
She is drinking mostly bottles, but doesn’t get overly excited about them. She does like her food, though!!
This last month has been crazy for us. Thankfully, Daphne is a pretty happy, go-lucky baby. She is learning to just go with the flow – although she probably doesn’t have much of a choice as the third!!
This is a new favorite position! Daphne gets on her hands and knees and then puts her forehead to the ground. We are still trying to figure out what she is trying to do!
