I've been looking for this, but no one has started one.
Avalon is 7.5 months old now and her first two teeth seem to be coming up. She woke up a ton last night and wants to nurse a lot. I think we are a few weeks away from her first steps! She climbs stairs well and she can walk holding on to one of our hands (the vid is two hands that I took a few days ago.) I think she is almost 20lbs... She was 18ish lbs at her 6 month.
She's finally started babbling..."ba ba ba" and DH was trying to teach her the sign for milk last night when I was brushing my teeth before bed and she said "Mama" in response. Was that her first word? I really don't know. She throws mini tantrums sometimes and clearly yells "MAMA" if I won't pick her up, but her crying used to sound like mamama sometimes, so.....
This morning I asked her where's daddy, where's doggy and she look right at both of them. Then she put my lanisoh tube in her mouth and I said "No eat" and she stopped and handed it to me (we've been working on "please give that to me")!!! It is like she has finally gotten to the point where she can get around and doesn't need to focus as much on that and she just up and decided to finally listen to what I am saying. Last month, we taught her how to throw a ball back and forth. She has no interest in clapping, playing pat a cake, etc.
She barely eats food and bfing is painful because it is like her latched changed or something when the teeth started coming in. I hope it gets better. I've just been giving her big chunks of food to gnaw on, but I think I might do some purees with spoons because she wants to eat, she just can't figure out how to deal with soft food. She gets MAD when she can't figure it out. She was gnawing on a frozen banana yesterday day and it was easier for her to swallow it because it turned to wet mush.
Here is our vid for the month:
I wanna hear all the news and see cute pics of our November babes! ;)
