Sad to leave the snuggles behind

So hard to believe, but this was the last leap of her infant months! She will be 1 year old shortly and becomes a toddler. The time is flying by; the baby times are dwindling quickly. It is amazing and emotional all at the same time. So glad to see her growing up, so sad to leave the snuggles behind.

Baby's 7 months update

I was going to do monthly baby update for the first 6 months (or at least I tried) and then wait till a year. I was thinking that her development might slow down a little bit after 6 months but this month, she's literally been doing so much stuffs that I would like to update about it.

World Breastfeeding Week

Looking at her face today while breastfeeding, seeing her so dependent on me to fulfil her physical and emotional needs even after carrying her for 40 weeks and going through the arduous experience of labour and childbirth, I was overwhelmed at how amazing and powerful the female body is with its ability to grow, to sustain and to nurture life.

Introduction to play - wooden ball

Last week I introduced 2 wooden balls to her. At first I placed the balls in front of her within her reach. She managed to grasp them well but since they are round in shape, they tend to roll away easily. She would scream for my help (she started learning how to scream at the highest pitch) and of course I helped to bring the balls back. After a few rounds, I started placing the balls at a further distance and as expected she screamed for my help but this time round I sat there quietly and gave her few minutes to figure out. She started by using 'eye power' but of course that did not work. She tried stretching her hands and wiggling her fingers but couldn't reach as well. She then started raising her butt and moved her legs forward.

Her trying beetroot for the first time

We have started Rainbow on solid when she turned 6 months. We are doing it the baby-led-weaning (BLW) way.
