Everything is going by so quickly!
My son has passed the 7 month mark.
He now has five teeth which he loves to grind together and run his tongue on.
Crawling is not far away, it seems, as he has become rather mobile. Today marks the first day he was able to get on his hands and knees. Only yesterday, he wasn’t able to make the transition from one knee to two.
He keeps on impressing me with regards to food. He is now able to manage slippery foods like cucumber and soft foods like banana and he is eating more and more. In fact, BLW has worked so well that now, when I have to give him some benadryl for an allergic reaction or advil to help him through teething, he keeps his mouth resolutely shut if I do not let him hold onto the medication syringe by himself *sigh*.
He almost always falls asleep on his own and very seldom accepts to be rocked anymore.
And now…he is starting to pull up from a seated position.
It seems that the helpless newborn that came into this world at the end of November is definitely gone. And, while I’m excited about the emergence of his new skills and his gained autonomy, I can’t help but feel a little sad.
