Wow, how time flies! A moment ago Yna was just a month old. And now, she's already seven months! We'll just be waiting for 5 months and she'll be one! Wow (sigh). We celebrated her 7th month in a very simple way. Her dad just bought lasagna, pizza and spaghetti from a fast food because the day before that, her grandfather has celebrated his 6oth birthday. So we actually had a load of fun, enjoyment and food enough to keep us full the next day.
I have already packed her other stuff like the receiving blankets, her first two socks, her first three dresses which were already small for her, wash clothes and her first feeding bottles. I just can't afford to give them away, they are my baby's first stuff. Maybe in the next few years, yet, I still don't know. And I was surprised to see her bibs (there are 7 pieces in the laundry)!I am not aware how much bibs I have bought for her. It's just too many!
As much as possible, I don't force her to be held by anyone when she starts showing the sign nor do I want to be on the rescue always. But she's just a baby, what can I do. Well, I believe that gradually, she would learn how to deal with her fear and be familiar with those people. According to the study I have read on the net, "it has nothing to do with the absence of assurance, it is simply the amount of alarm hormone each person is born with."
And before I forget, these are some of the new things that Yna has developed aside form the continuous shouting of our baby soprano (",)
- she stand when leaning onto something steady like table, chair, on the crib
- she bites (taste) anything she holds - even those that are within reach!
- she's showing a greater sense of humor
- laughs and laughs and laughs
- she now say 'tata' 'dada' 'amama'
- she's sitting well without any support
