7 Month Milestones

Now that he is into his seventh month, I’ve seen quite a few new milestones:-

  1. He has started on meat protein. Together with his greens, food that he has tried includes potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, butternut squash, zucchini, spinach, carrot, french beans, celery, brussel sprouts, lentils, fish, chicken, tofu, yogurt, plain rice, oats, multi grains, brown rice, apples, pears, peach, plum, mango, avocado and banana!
  2. He can wriggle and crawl slightly.
  3. As of 15 Oct 2007, he could sit up on his own from the tummy position. To date, he has done it less than 10 times. Always taking us by surprise, which explains the lack of video!
  4. He has managed to successfully place his Gerber puffs into his mouth all by himself! How many know that self-feeding is a mean feat for babies!? thou it puzzles me why he can put everything inedible into his mouth, yet can’t place food! :S
  5. He can drink from his Nuby sippy cup now. Though not alot yet, and mostly with my help in tilting the cup, still he’s drinking and I am glad!!
  6. And while I was in the middle of writing this post, and running around entertaining him, he has managed to figure out how to stand up by himself in his cot by pulling on the cot bars. Yup! And thus also managed to earn his very first trophy on his forehead by falling sideways and hitting his head! :S (Ok, there was once he hit his head on my teeth and suffered a tiny bruise.. but that’s not counted as a trophy.. it’s too embarrassing to be on the records!)

Ok, video of him standing up soon…

The following picture is naturally blurred without editing. Please do not adjust your monitor. :p

He fell as I was taking this shot… bad mummy! 🙁
