Tomoe is nearly 7 months old now. And she is very mobile! She’s crawling very well now, and that’s been a problem. We had to rearrange a few things in the living room to make it safer for her, but she still gets into everything! Her favourite things tend to be paper, bags, anything plastic, and cans. When I pick her up to move her away from things she shouldn’t have, she starts crying. She’s starting minor tantrums. She wanted them so much, but she was denied. If she doesn’t get what she wants, she lays on the floor on her stomach, puts her head down on the floor and cries. She also gets around quite a bit on the bed while we try to sleep. I’ve woken up with her at the foot of the bed instead of up where she normally sleeps.
She’s also starting to say some new things. Before, she often said “bababababa” and “mamamamama.” Then she moved on to “wawawawawa” and “yayayayaya.” Then it was “mehmehmehmehmeh.” Now it’s “dadadadadada.” The first time I heard her say “dadadada” was when she was looking at me and reaching for me to pick her up. Of course, I’m pretty sure it was a coincidence, as she hasn’t done that since then, but it was a very nice coincidence!
The rest of this post is just pictures, showing her growing mobility skills.
She can pull herself up on the sofa to stand up now. She loves doing this.
She likes showing off, but sometimes she gets into trouble when she tries to pull things off the sofa.
She’s pretty happy to stand a lot these days.
She likes to fight sleep, but when she does fall asleep, she loves to do it while being held.
She’s quite comfortable.
She’ll sleep in almost any position.
On the floor, she has many toys, but for some reason, she loves this blue baby wet wipes box.
Tomoe’s been sleeping a lot on the floor lately. The bouncer restricts her movement too much, as she now likes to sleep on her stomach. She even fell asleep with her head on my foot.
She’s getting really good at holding her own bottle now.
And now some silliness. She crawled into her bouncer by herself.
Then she turned around and tried crawling out.
Such a silly girl.
Well, that’s all for this time. The day before she turns 7 months old, on this Friday, she’s going to be getting her second DTP shot.
