Darcy | Seven Month Update

That's another month gone in a minute, it really is true what they say 'time flys when you have a child.' I have a seven month old! I've been looking back recently a lot at photos of my Darcy when she was a new born and I just can't believe how big they get in such a short space of time.

So what has happened this month.. 

  • She babbles a lot at the moment and a lot of her sounds sound like words, such as mama and dada. I wonder if she really does know what she is saying sometimes.
  • She is sat up properly now and I can leave her with a few toys while i run around doing quick housework.
  • She is loving her food and will pretty much eat anything we give her, she does prefer to feed herself so we're trying a combination of baby led & purees. We give her three meals a day.
  • This month we've been really trying to get in a more fixed routine which has also meant sleep training, something I've been a bit hesitant to try, I'd like to do a post on this completely though.
  • She really wants to crawl, how ever she kind of just rocks on her stomach but pushes her arms up, so shes nearly there. She just needs to work on those legs!
  • She is a lot more interactive now, and can pass her toys from hand to hand.

She is at one of those stages where if you watch her you can see she is discovering something new all the time.

I think that might be pretty much it..
Thanks for reading

Darcys First Christmas

I'm a bit late in posting this, but it was definitely something I wanted to write about to look back on more than anything.
Darcy has just had her first Christmas and with her only being 6 months old at the time, it was safe to say she didn't have a clue what was going on. However I think she really enjoyed herself and got lots of new toys. When we began our day I did her a small stocking and she opened all of those she loved her new rattles and bits and bobs, after all of the excitement of that though she was a little bit overwhelmed and got really tired really quickly so she went off for her nap. Once she had woken up we all opened our presents together, I didn't realise this would have to be done so slowly with a baby! They get so confused as to what is going on don't they, bless, we then all chilled out for a bit before going over to my mums for Christmas dinner, yum yum. (And of course Darcy got some too!)
We spent the rest of the day there and shared lots of laughter, fun and drank lots and ate lots, just what Christmas is about, oh and not forgetting a game of monopoly.
Darcy's routine was pretty out of the window understandably, so by the end of it all she was super tired!
The following day we spent the day with Paul's family so we got two Christmas', again another day Darcy thoroughly enjoyed.
I just thought I'd post some pictures as really they say everything.
