7 months old??? How?

How is this possible? My tiny baby is now 7 months old. Crazy.


This month has been all about weaning really and I'm pleased to say she's got to grips with it nicely. She's still not convinced on meat but she's getting there. She would live off yogurt if I let her but I do make sure she eats various things each day to keep tickling her pallete and get her to used to different tastes and textures. Some favourites T the moment are bannana, yogurt, apricots and croissant! A girl after my own heart!!! 

I am now combination feeding her and it's going well. I feed her when I want to and mix in bottles here and there in the day alongside her food. I had to get her to this stage as I'm back at work on Monday- scary I know.  :( so her dad needs to be able to feed her too when I'm not here. I go back to work on Monday and am still feeling so sad about it, but am much more comfortable with the idea than last month. I think seeing how good she is with her dad has let me relax a little and knowing I'll still be around quite a bit makes me realise it won't be so bad. 


Her sleeping is a little all over the place at the moment, one night she will go through and then the next she will want feeding once and then other times she will wake up at 5/6 and won't go back to sleep! Or she will when I'm holding her but I put her down and she's wide awake! I think part of it is she's growing and becoming more aware of everything and also it's chilly! So when I put her into her cot it's colder than if I hold her, who can blame her. 

We still have no teeth.. The dribble is still coming thick and fast and her cheeks areso  rosy they burn sometimes, as well as everything going in her mouth all of the time but no toothie pegs! 

Daisy is now pretty much into her 6-9 months clothes with the exception of a few bits I can't let go of like her little rabbit dungarees! But I really do need to pack them away now as sad as it is. 

We have now finished rhythm time and sadly didn't make it to our last one because I had a nasty migraine but I think we will see her little buddies and their mummies again soon anyway. We will really miss our Monday mornings with them. I am going to have Wednesdays off as my four day week pattern and so I'm planning on taking her to swimming lessons then. It will get us out and about and means we can still do some mummy- baby socialising! As well as obviously getting her used to the water!!! 

Lots of love,

  1. Aww, she's so beautiful. I'm glad weaning is going well and she's enjoying her food. Jasmine got her first two literally a couple days after I posted her 7 month update saying she had no teeth!! Good luck going back to work and I can't wait to hear about how things go with your new job.

  2. Aww happy 7 months! I'm glad weaning is going well. Good luck returning to work, I've been back 4 months now and it's not too hard anymore. You will love having a bit of a break from being just 'mummy' and the cuddles after are the best :)
