7 Months

Time is flying by!  Munchkin is now seven months old (actually she’s 7 1/2 months if we’re being technical.  I’m a little behind.)  P2140447She is still incredible and amazing.  I look at her and marvel that The Man and I made her and that she is ours.  It still boggles my mind.

She’s become a shrieker.  At home, when we’re out, at church…it doesn’t matter where, she just likes you to know that she can use her voice.  She still babbles and sometimes it sounds like she is saying real words.  I think she’s just looking forward to talking!

She enjoying food more even though she’s still not eating a lot of it yet.  She has plenty of time and right now Joey is her best friend.  His new trick is to lick her hand when she puts it over the side of P2140440her chair.  We have to keep on top of him to make sure he’s not around till she’s done or he’ll snatch the food right out her hand.  Joey very much likes that Munchkin has started solids!

Munchkin wants to be a girl on the move.  She can push herself back on her belly and turn herself in circles.  She’s trying to get up on her hands and knees but isn’t quite there yet.  She can hold herself up on her hands no problem, it’s the getting her knees under her bum that’s the problem.  She’s working on it though and I think she’ll get it soon!  She has mastered pulling herself up from sitting when holding on to my fingers.  She does it straight legged.  I keep trying to get her to do it with her legs bent but that’s a no go at the moment.  It’s one of her favorite things to do.

She continues to be super cute.  Here’s my proof:



  1. She is so adorable! :)

  2. adorable. She'll be moving in no time and you'll think back fondly on these cute cuddle time.

  3. It sounds like she and Maddie are at the exact same point in regards to crawling. Madeline just does a push up and spins around. Or splays out on her belly and flails her limbs like a landlocked penguin. It's all rather adorable. I'm feeling a lot of pressure from other moms to get her moving, like what? 7 1/2 months and she can't crawl? But really I don't think any amount of puffs or toys I hold out are going to make a difference. I don't think her legs are ready yet to make it happen. She doesn't know how to fold them up and under.And she's on her belly at least 30% of her waking hours so it's not for lack of trying. Glad to know her same aged baby is on the same page!

  4. I know! I'm actually not in a rush for her to crawl/walk. I like that I can put her down and she stays on one spot!

  5. Yup! I'm totally ok that she's not on the move yet. I like that I can put her down and she stays in one spot! And the landlocked penguin description? Spot on! Love it:)
