7 Months Milestones Adventures

Wow stick! From right...
Pass it to the left
Put it on the mouth. Yummy!!!

My 7-month-old Justine

After she masters the ability to grasp an object, an exciting step follows: transferring it from one hand to the other. For now, baby at 7 months will experiment so much with both hands that you won't have a clue which hand is preferred, the right or the left. In fact, handedness doesn't usually become obvious until much later. A preference might become apparent around 9 months, but even then, little ones tend to be ambidextrous, sometimes until they start school.

Baby at 7 months is learning to recognize emotions and moods, and finding new ways to demonstrate those feelings. One wonderful example: You might start getting kisses. They may be drooly and gummy at first, but they'll be just as sweet! When your baby's bored, you may hear a fretful squawk or an attention-getting squeal.

By now, you may have already told your baby that the telephone isn't a toy, or that rattles aren't for throwing, or that her sister's hair isn't for pulling. At this age, your baby may begin testing your authority by refusing to follow your simple directions. She's not really being disobedient or willful — just curious.

Keep in mind that she simply can't remember things you tell her for more than a couple of seconds at a time. The best tactic is to use a simple "no" and then distract her.

Across cultures — from Western to Latin American to African — babies show increasing separation anxiety between 6 and 15 months.


These are really true with my little jelly bean. She is becoming a handful, going under the table or chairs. She also put hersefl in trouble when she is under the table because she always bang her head because she is trapped. She also likes going to to the cable box and DVD and start playing with it by pounding them. She knows she is not allowed to be those place because as soon as we call her name she would turn around and smile. So, we move her away and the next thing we know she there again where the cable box or dvd again or pull the piano covers. She pulls any body's hair like my hair and Jake. Since she can't pull her Dads hair, she'd rather pull her Dad's beard. I'll post some of her activities next time.

Lumalaki na nga si Justine at marami na siyang nadi discover na mga bagong bagay. Kinakabahan lang ako sa hawak niyang stick sa kamay dahil baka ma aksidenteng matusok niya ang kanyang mata nito. Hindi siya dapat iwanang magisa dahil iyan ang pinaka vulnerable niyang age, yung very curious siya at nag aaral nang mga bagong bagay. Dapat alert din kayo palagi sa ginagawa niya. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
