Ah, Madeline is seven months old today, and the list of milestones and achievements continues to increase!
- she can now locomote both forwards and backwards, although she hasn’t yet figured out the cross-crawl. The forward mobility is the newest skill – she pulls herself forward with her elbows out, much like a WWI soldier in a battlefield
- Tooth #3 is making it’s way out (a top incisor)
- she has two meals of solid food a day. She’s tried rice cereal (particularly enjoyable with a bit of mashed banana), barley cereal (on hiatus due to suspected food sensitivity), oat cereal (a fave), sweet potatoes (s0-so), and avocado (a hit so far!)
- such a little gymnast that we’ve had to retire the DIKTAD changing table and convert it back to a chest of drawers
