Oscar is seven months


Little boy is seven months old now and quickly shedding his baby chub! There have been a number of exciting developments this month, from gaining extra strength, enabling him
to start sitting up, from having more meals now, to making new sounds with his mouth. I feel like he's done so much growing recently, maybe it's the festive food, he's developing so quickly!

Right now we have our Christmas tree up and it was really interesting seeing how he reacted to the flashing lights and glittery baubles. We are getting ready to celebrate the season in all different ways that will appeal to his senses; that way he can feel there's something different and special going on this time of year! The subtle scent of pine needles is everywhere, there are glittery lights to see, jazz and festive music to hear, wrapping paper to scrumple up and special meals with potato, turkey and parsnips. Not to mention festive pyjamas and pug sheets!

There is also the ritual of wrapping up extra warm whenever we go outside, with mittens, bobble hats and blankets. We had our first ever go on the swings on a sunny morning, after choosing some wrapping paper at the supermarket. I was so happy to have four or five days of finally feeling normal and energised and I did not feel unwell! It felt like such a breakthrough.

Thanks so much for your supportive comments on my last mind post! Exciting developments for this month include grasping and holding things with two hands now - his grip is definitely getting firmer! - little tooth buds appearing at the front on his top gums, sitting quite happily on his own, rolling everywhere and twisting himself round and upside down on his mat. When lying down he has started to use his elbows to prop himself up in to a sitting position. He hasn't managed to hold it for long yet but it's so exciting to see him try!

More food preferences have since emerged now he is on three meals a day; I'm not sure whether this is a good or bad thing! Ever since we have experimented with organic baby yoghurts, Oscar definitely looks a little confused whenever I wiggle a spoon full of mix vegetable medley in to his mouth. Recently we tried Fisherman's Bake and Cauliflower with Cheese, although his favourites are Rice Pudding or Banana Custard: definitely a sweet tooth!

 Speaking of mouths, new sounds have started to emerge that sound an awful lot like real words. He has branched out in to 'um-breh-eye-koo-nyeh' rather than just his 'ah-goo', and a special 'oh-gah' sound that follows meal times when he is expecting to have a yoghurt. Not sure if that's going to be his first word but it's fun to guess about it! Personality-wise, he's a cheeky monkey as much as ever and loves playing tricks and games with you stealing your socks just so you'll confront and tickle him. He's a real sweetheart and very patient while I'm taking photos of him! How are you spending the holidays this year? Come over and say 'hi' if you see us!

  6. Oscar is adorable! I usually don't like babies - and they don't seem to like me either - but I can't help but think what a sweetheart he is!

    1. Hi Becky! I was the same until I had Oscar, I was always running away from my (much) younger siblings, they were nothing but annoying to me xD I'm happy that I have gained a different perspective on it since I became a mother! Thanks so much - I'm sure he would love to give you his hugest smile! :D ♡

  11. Oscar is so cute! It must be quite impressive to see your baby growing up so fast, they change so quickly in their first years. A first Christmas is always really exciting for the parents and a discovery for the baby - although I won't remember it! :P
    Also, it's nice to see you're feeling better :)

    1. Hi Julia! It's so strange really because it doesn't seem like he changes in front of my eyes as I see him all the time. When I look back on his progress and earlier pictures it amazes me! When he has a brand new development or something to show me, that's an amazing feeling too! :D That's so true, I can't what to see what he makes of presents though xD awww thank you! :D ♡
