This month you started doing a rather unfortunate thing with your tongue which was less than attractive – you stuck it behind your bottom lip! The above photo was the nicest one I could find of you doing it without making you look really awful and thankfully for the readers, no food is on display!
Luckily, this was just one of your many phases (like your love of raspberries which comes back periodically!).

We finally got your nursery looking spiffy with the bunting up and (almost) everything in its place. The final addition will be your foot and hand print which has now arrived.
We tried you in your door bouncer for the 2nd or 3rd time and you really seemed to get the hang of it (‘scuse the pun!). You actually managed a couple of bounces (although this does not compare the manic jumping we get now, at Month 8!).
All in all, your seventh month saw a lot of changes – somewhere towards the end of it – and I am not really sure exactly when, I realised that you could sit unaided. That is not to say that we didn’t need to still use plenty of cushions around you as you were still prone to a sudden faceplant when we least expected it which makes us realise what a lethal deathtrap (redundant, I know) the house is. One poorly padded marble hearth and.. well, I don’t want to think about it.
But some things stay the same. My love for you. And your eyes of blue. And your quizzical brow.
