Jack-Jack turned seven months towards the end of this week. He seems to have come on in leaps and bounds since he arrived with us, although we still have very little information about his previous care, so we're not sure which milestones are actually true "firsts" for him. Possible milestones today included using a pincer grip, pulling his own hat off, trying to feed us, and not crying during any clothing change (miracle!)
One thing we are sure of is that the first snow of his life fell today! Unfortunately it was during his morning nap so he didn't get to see it, but we appreciated it for him.
We celebrated his seven month birthday with a trip to the soft play centre with a friend and her two little ones, and Jack-Jack absolutely loved all the sounds and colours, and was watching everyone and taking everything in. He particularly liked the ball pit, even though at one point all three of them were squashed into the tiny pool!
We decided to start him on step 2 baby food this evening (we have no idea if/when he had been weaned, so we started cautiously on step 1 food), and he enjoyed it so much that we gave him a baby biscuit to suck on after his fruit, and he devoured it with gusto.
Our first trip out to the big city is planned for tomorrow, and one of the items on the itinerary is to buy a giant changing bag, as our rose tinted pre-baby view of "oh it'll be fine we don't need one, we'll just tuck a bottle, a nappy and some wipes into one of our normal bags and off we go" seems like a distant memory...
