The baby’s range of sounds and facial expressions continues to grow, with lots of babbling, squealing, smiling, and laughing — which may mean less time for crying. This is also an age of imitating sounds, which are first attempts at speaking.
Trying to imitate sounds
At the age of seven months, my baby at this age began to experiment with the sounds he could make with his mouth, using saliva as an important tool. My baby also makes more effort to emulate sounds and fritter more time babbling. Make no mistake, this is baby’s early endeavor at talking and should be convinced as much as possible. If we pay attention closely, we’ll hear my baby’s voice heave and slump as if asking a question or making a statement. Our baby is just now starting to comprehend the basics of communication through words. Now, our baby’s beginning to pick out the words of your saying and can hear and know the different sounds that we formulate and the way words form sentences.
Babies may also try coughing to get parental attention at this age just like our baby does. Rather than punishing our baby for this, we give extra attention once the coughing or fussing has stopped. This is the age when our babies are able to reflect our emotional state, which is the beginning of true communication.

Before I got pregnant I have so many questions come up in my mind. Soon I will become a mother. What kind of a mother am I? How could I raise my children? Would I be a good mother to my children? In gaining a triumph of life I have fear, what if I could not make my best to be a good mother. What will be the life or the future for my coming children?
Now, I have my one and only son, he is now seven months old. He grows strong and sensible. He does what he wants. Today, I started to study his attitude, observing him every movement. The way he take his action and how he interact to people we met. I always analyze his behavior and compare it to other babies of his age and the way he smile to the people around him when trying to play.
As to the matter of fact, I totally surrender everything to God. Discipline would be nothing without the guidance of our Heavenly Father. I always pray to God that my son will grow in accordance to His will. Maybe by surrendering to Him everything will be fine.
