Seven months and it really feels like it’s only been seven days! Where has the time gone- look how big she suddenly is!
Maya is the most active little thing I have ever seen. She can’t stay still for a second! Even when she sleeps she moves around a lot. Now her crawling attempts are much more steady and confident and I can see she manages to coordinate her movements. Well, at least sometimes. She has also shown interest in feeding herself on her own, grabbing spoons and bowls only to end up in a big puree mess. I started introducing her solids a month ago but she still gets her portions of breast milk. And to show how stubborn she is from very early age she still refuses to drink water.
Seven months is the time for another important milestone in baby’s development- teething! Oh how I wish I could make teething less painful and a much faster process! Anything she gets her hands on she puts in her mouth to soothe her gums. As wonderful sleeper as she was, she now wakes up several times a night. And I can see she is in agony from tooth pain.
This month we also got her a walker and activity station. Maya loves it although her little feet are still a fraction off the ground.
The past seven months have flown by! Most days are wonderful! But every once in a while it gets tough and frustrating and then I try to remember that “the days are long but the years are short”! And I suddenly feel blessed again to have this little angel!
Happy seven months my little sweetheart!
