Where the hell has the time gone?! This is Erin’s 7 month update! It doesn’t seem like 2 minutes since her 6 month update.
In the last month or so, Erin has changed so much.
On the day that Erin turned 6 months old her first tooth popped through. She had been drooling and had teething pains for what seemed like forever. The tooth wasn’t there in the morning on that day but it was in the afternoon. Four days later another tooth popped through!
This month Erin has also started to get a lot more mobile. When John had the week off work she rolled from front to back for the first time. It didn’t seem like she had any interest in going from back to front though until last week. John and Erin were laid on our bed and she just did it after a fair bit of trying. She hasn’t done it much since but at least we know she can now! Unfortunately, rolling around means not being able to leave her anywhere, making life a lot harder!
This past month Erin has been doing so well with food, even after a stomach bug when she went off it for a while. 3 meals a day has meant another 2lb put on in 4 weeks and she now weighs nearly 17lb. She’s still under for her age but she’s getting there! We are starting to try Erin with a lot more finger foods and exciting puree combinations. Some she has liked and some she hasn’t but she gives everything a really good go! Her favourite thing at the minute is to share my giant crumpets, so much so that she tries to take the plate!
I honestly can’t believe how different Erin is to a month ago. I am so excited to see what changes have happened in another month. I’m sure she’ll be crawling by then, or very close it it, as she’s trying already.

Oh my goodness her first tooth! Goodness I remember those terrible teething pains. Hope she won’t suffer too badly with all of them.
I love update posts. It’s great Erin is becoming more mobile, it’s like once they start that’s them, they are off! I empathise with you on teething, I hated it, feel so sorry for the little ones.

It sounds like she doing wonderful. Love the photo of her with the crumpet, my two adore crumpets too xx
Oh lovely, they change day by day at this age!! I remember mine starting to crawl after his brother just before he was 7 months and ever since then I’ve not stopped moving! Hope she isn’t suffering with her teeth too much, we’ve found teething powders help!
Thanks! We tend to try a bit of everything for the teething. One of them has to work!
I loved the weaning stage but not so much the teething one! They do look oh so cute when they start getting little teeth, awww!!!
I love her two cute teeth at the minute. She will look rather strange when she gets more though x
It really does fly by and they change so much at this age. My younger crawled at 8 months and was fast too!! Such a lovely age x
Erin is desperate to be on the move. I thought it was quite early but I guess not x
It is amazing how far things progress in just a month and it is great that Erin is becoming mobile!
I’m sure she’ll be crawling properly by next month!
Time flies so quickly doesn’t it? Children grow so fast. She is a cutie.
Aww so cute. We have been doing the same approach to weaning too. I actually haven’t given my baby a crumpet so I’ll have to try that x
It wasn’t planned… she just sort of helped herself! I can’t have one now without her wanting to share. x
