Nathan hit 7 months yesterday. I’m not in a I cant believe my baby is 7 months already oh dear me state, not at all. I feel like he is 7 months, I feel like I’m 7 months into the “gig” still on the new side but hitting my grove. I LOVE this age, we have a blast, he is eating well, sleeping well and as healthy as I could ever hope for. Time is flying by but I am lucky enough to have the time to really savor several moments a day. Nearly every feeding is in his room in the rocker, just us, no outside anything, just us. I love the time to relax and rub his fuzzy little head ( his latest name is Fuzz Light year) I sing and talk to him and its wonderful. We read everyday, go outside most days, go for walks, swing at the park, run errands, sit in the yard, pet the dog, everything is amazing and fun. But he seems to be wanting more, and new and I dont know what else to do.
Because he is getting older, completely aware of everything around him, more mobile on the floor creeping and rolling (no crawling yet- that’s fine with me) he’s a little less interested in his Jumperoo and excercauser for the in between times with Mom where I have to run the swiffer around or cook dinner. The baby papasan is done, as is his swing. His alternative holding place is his feeding chair. I’m at a place where I’m not sure what to do with him, or what he needs from me. Yesterday we bought some bubbles, which I didn’t really think he would notice but he loved them. We are working on clapping and waving (man my life is RIVETING!) but that doesn’t take too long. I don’t feel ready for this age, what else can I be teaching him? Hes a little ahead of what my book is telling us but not ready for crayons,, i feel sort of lost.
