10 Things My 7-Month-Old Is Doing

By EmilyBMalone |

Loving the swings!

Each time we pass a new monthly “birthday,” I think about how many new things Cullen is doing and enjoying that particular month.  It’s amazing how much can change in just 30ish short days.  There are some big things that seem to span multiple months, and other fleeting things that last only a week.

I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of Cullen’s favorite things at each month (and even more fun to look back on many months later!).  Just a few months ago this list would have looked like:  peeing, pooping, eating, staring, white noise, sleeping in the Moby, not sleeping at night, etc.  And I’m sure back at two or three months, this list of his favorite 7-month activities would have blown me away.

Here are ten things Cullen is doing and loving now at seven months old!

10 Things My 7-Month Old Is Doing

Baby Swings

Cullen just discovered these this month, and he absolutely loves them. He thinks it's so funny to rush up to mom or dad's face, and then swing all the way back and belly laugh. I can't get enough.

    Our baby has recently discovered his pacifier. Jack is not-quite-5 months, but is…ahem…a little ahead of the curve. (21 lbs. and 28 in. not to mention STRONG.) He has really good fine motor skills, which is great because he’s loving the hell out of his toys already. But we’re finding that he can’t be alone with his pacifier anymore. If he gets bored (like in his crib before falling asleep), he’ll play with the paci… take it out, put it back in. Which is fine, sure. But recently, he’s been putting the whole. damn. thing. in his mouth. He likes to chew on the hard plastic, I suppose, since his first tooth has just broken the surface. But it makes me super nervous and I won’t let him have it anymore unless he’s content to just suck. Luckily, he doesn’t need it to fall asleep… I’m astonished that he can fit the whole thing in there, and I have flashes of panic that it’s going to get stuck halfway down his throat.
    Has Cullen been doing this at all? Anyone else’s little ones?

    Emily, do you have any tips on the whole people food thing? Jake will turn six months in about a week and I’m still nervous about starting solids…

    Do you make your own food yet? How do you know how much, when, how often to use people food? Did you read any good books/blogs that helped you get ready? Thanks in advance. :)

      Hey Bethany! The food stuff is scary and stressful, but it’s really not that bad once you get started. I have started making food, as well as just mashing things up for him to feed himself. Right now we do solids twice a day because that just works best in our schedule. I can usually tell from his interest level when he’s had enough. I am always looking for new books and info too!

    Don’t sweat the rocking to sleep thing. I rocked/nursed all my kids to sleep when they were little and we never had problems as they got older. They would start to want to rock/nurse less and less. Now I have three great sleepers. I would love to rock and have chest nap anyday but youngest is 5 yrs old. Enjoy it when they are young! You are doing an awesome job and I love reading your posts.

    We rocked J till he was almost 2. One day he didn’t want to any more and that was that. Now we are lucky is we get a brief cuddle out of him. Go for it, it was awesome and I miss it.

    I have an 8 month old, and I love the book Super Baby Food – it’s helped so much with all phases of food for babies. Love your blog Emily!
