Baby Journals – 7 Months Old – Minnie-Jean
Here we are at 7 months old already. I can’t quite get my head around where the time has gone but it’s honestly been the best 7 months of my life. I love that I have a little person to look after and run around for. She’s becoming so much more fun and life’s an absolute hoot and honestly, I can’t wait for her to be crawling around so we can run around and burn energy together.
7 Months Old
I shouldn’t be waiting too long for that as she is already trying to crawl and is getting to grips with the crawling position as we speak. She can army crawl on the bed to get to objects, but has not quite figured that out when it comes to being on the floor. She’s definitely a motivated little soul for sure. She’s also gained 2 teeth now and I’m almost certain there’s another one trying to break through as she’s chewing a lot of stuff on one side of her mouth.
Her sleeping routine has changed, but not by a lot, she’s now going to sleep at around 8:30 to 9:30 pm before the latest she’d go to bed was 10:30 pm. This also means a slightly earlier start sometimes. The usual wake up time is 7:30 am and the fun begins with a ton of smiles.
She’s so giggly now, and especially finds daddy acting like a complete idiot in front of her and to say she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie is an understatement, alongside this though she is quite clingy at the moment. If you leave the room she will cry and won’t stop until you come back in the room. I know this is normal and a phase she will grow out of.
Her eating routine is still pretty much on point to the every 4 hours mark, I’ve started to let her now tell me when she’s hungry before I’d make her food ready for dead on 4 hours whether or not she asked for it, sometimes she’d not eat because she simply wasn’t hungry and that would result in a wasted load of food, most of the time though dead on 4 hours she asks me for her dinner. She’s become slightly pickier with food now, spaghetti bolognaise being her least favourite food but she will almost eat absolutely anything.
