Not A Camera Shy Baby

My baby is on the last week of his seventh month and at this age he has shown a lot of development that amuses us. These are development that we expect to be evident on the eight month. One of them is his sense of belongingness. Babies has there own sense of belongings. Just like on this following pictures, my little boy knows that the toys they’re playing with is his. He also has the sense that he is on his own place or that he owns the place.

That's mine...

Another thing that we found out is that our baby at this age already knows how to respond to what we would like him to do. For instance, he cries and so for us to pacify him we call his name and tell him to smile for a photo shot, he then will cease crying and smiles to face the camera.  Not a camera shy baby huh… Just take a glance of the photographs.

Communicating With The Baby

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.

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.

Learning Independence in Their Little Ways

Mother knows best for their little ones. All mother wanted that their child will be refined person when they mature. We teach them to do some things that are manageable in their age. We keep them motivated to achieve something; to buildup their self-confidence and to be an independent person someday. 

As of the moment while my baby is still at his seventh month I am giving him some degree of freedom like allowing him to get or grab something that attracts him but of course with my supervision. I also play some games with him and bring him along when going out with our friends. At his age he already mumbles and crawls so I allow him to talk and crawl alone.

I had observed this many times to my friend who has a one year one baby.  She teaches her child to be independent. She gives instructions and she’s just right there to monitor her child’s activity. She allows her child to walk alone, to dress up with her little ways. When taking a bath, she’s just right there to watch her child. In the table, she sits by the side of her child just to assist in getting foods to the mouth. She teaches her child in choosing some things. In little way, she educates her child to make their own decision.

Well, as early as soon, mother should teach their child to be independent. So when they grow they already are amplified with their confidence.  In a way, they can make decisions on their own.

SEVEN MONTHS OLD BABY

My little boy has turned seven months old. At this age we started disciplining him. It seems hard because he seem not to understand a word we’re saying. At this age, the baby can do what they want to do. He can recognize voice. He laughs every time we tickle him and play pick-a-boo with him. He listens to music and every time he hears a somewhat unusual sound he looks around to find where the sound came from. He starts playing at some object that attracts him. Television catches his attention as well. When the TV is on, he stops from playing and focus at the television for a minute or two eyes wide open.

I know my baby grow day after day. He shows some thing different everyday. He loves to sing especially when its time to go to bed. We don’t sing him lullaby instead he sings for himself his lullaby until he gets to sleep. He is responsive with some finger works like waving goodbye and playing close-open on his fingers. We made counting 1 to 10 familiar to him. So when we hold his hands and count 1 to 10 he behaves and point out his pointer finger. He started to claps his hands not so perfect but he can do it and pull and grab anything. He can sit up for a moment without support. When given support to standing position he jumps and jumps or bounced up and down. He moves around our bed going in circle as much as he wants. And now, he crawls perfectly.

I and my husband are so glad that our little one is learning.  We perceive his development everyday and we’re just so amused at whatever we discover our little boy is doing.

Mothers should be very vigilant with their little ones at this age because babies are now very active and they pretty much swallow anything their hands grabs.
