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!

  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!!!
