Birthday Boy!

Ollie is 7 months old today - wow! Time is flying by, I can't believe it! This is such a fun age, I feel like his personality is really starting to show. My uncle once told me that with each child's birthday comes a new "favorite age" . . . until the 13th birthday, haha. Even though we are still celebrating monthly birthdays, so far I have to agree. Each new month seems to be my favorite baby age!

Ollie is mastering new skills everyday, some of the highlights from his 6th month include: 
  • solid foods
  • sitting up
  • developing fine motor skills
  • babbling (bababa)
  • screeching 
  • hair pulling (yikes)
What's in store of us this month?? I'm excited to find out!


  1. Happy Birthday Ollie!!! That pic is great. What a model!

  2. Happy Birthday Ollie!! Can't believe how fast the time is flying by!

  3. Yay happy birthday Ollie!!! Here's what you can look forward to (I was just making notes from 0-12months ha) from 7-9 months:
    • Looks at some common objects when the objects’ names are spoken
    • Comprehends “no”
    • Begins to use some gestural language: plays patycake, peek a boo, shakes head for no
    • Uses a variety of sound combinations
    • Uses inflected vocal play, intonation patterns
    • Imitates intonation and speech sounds by others (9 mo.)
    • Uses variegated babbling (e.g. mabamaba) (9 mo.)
    • Uncovers hidden toy (beginning of object permanence)

    So many fun things ahead!!!

    1. Thanks Jody!! I love that Ollie is developing at the same pace as your class, ha ha. Looks like we have a lot of fun skills ahead!
