7 Months Old

I love playful morning faces <3
Rowan is seven months old today.

It's been one heck of a busy month for him, learning to crawl and in the last couple of days, sit up on his own (I always thought sitting happened before crawling, but I've been proven wrong!).

Food is becoming less of a plaything and more about gimmee-gimmee-gimmee!! (current favourites are strawberries - still! - lamb, bananas, Vegemite on toast, shepherd's pie, chicken rissoles, Weetbix and couscous) Rowan eats two solid meals a day (lunch and dinner) and has 5-6 milk feeds also.

His sleep is going really consistantly again at the moment, napping twice a day for 1.5-2hrs apiece, and sleeping through the night. I'm incredibly thankful for this and don't know whether it's tied to food intake throughout the day or just the developmental stage he's at currently. Either way, I'm not complaining. ;)

Rowan is discovering more about picking things up with his fingers rather than the whole hand (think like a 'claw' arcade machine; no way near a pincer grip of course but definitely more fingers are involved than palm these days).

What else? Miss Polly Had a Dolly is a current favourite song (taking over from 5 Little Ducks), household objects are WAY more fun to play with than toys - especially washing on the clothes rack! - and hubby and I are thinking that Rowan's beginning to reach out with his arms a little in preparation for being picked up. He's a real Mummy's boy at the moment, Mummy makes everything better apparently (but Daddy is the one who gets the belly laughs :D).

  1. Such a beautiful boy! Love his little morning face!

    Chloe learned to stand before she could sit (and she commando crawled before she sat too)but given her condition this was a really good thing. :)

    Still loving the dirt noms!
