A letter to my daughter at 7 months old

Dear Autumn,

I say this every month, but time is going much too fast! It seems barely any time has passed since I was writing a letter to you at 6 months old! You’re so big now, it hurts my back to carry you. Nanny found my book from when I was a baby and you weigh around 3lbs more than I did when I was your age!

What a good girl. When you came out of hospital after being seriously ill, I kept telling you to drink your milk. I told you that it would make you grow big and strong! Here we are almost half a year later and you’re doing so well.

You’ve been on TV!

On the day you turned 6 months old, we were filmed by BBC Breakfast. You’re now officially a TV star! I know I’m biased, but I’ve never seen a cuter little baby on the telly!

You’ve rocked out with Mummy!

You’ve enjoyed Mummy singing some of her favourite music to you. You always seem to smile! Here we are in our amazing AC/DC t-shirts, rocking out in style!

We celebrated our first Mother’s Day together

I had a lovely first Mother’s Day with you! You and Daddy really treated me! My card from you was probably the biggest one I’ve ever seen. It had owls on it too, which are my favourite animal, as you know.

You’ve learned how to dance!

On Mother’s Day you danced for the first time. It’s so cute and funny! Now you often dance if you’re excited or hear music.

You’re getting closer to crawling

You’re very quick at turning around now! You’ve been doing a little bit of commando crawling to get where you want to. The last few days, you’ve starting rocking on your hands and knees. I think this is probably a precursor to you crawling properly!

 We’ve laughed a LOT together

One of my favourite moments this month was when I had the hiccups. I have really strange hiccups and you were unsure at first. Once I’d reassured you that they were okay, you found them hilarious!

You had your first visit to A&E

You somehow managed to fall onto the floor, onto your head! Mummy took you to Accident and Emergency at the local hospital to get you checked out. Fortunately, you were okay! The post she wrote about it and what to do helped a work friend when her baby fell on his head.

You celebrated your first Easter

You received some lovely gifts from friends and family! We also went on your first Easter bunny trail.

Your special Easter dress from Nanny was gorgeous! Your gorgeous smiles bring so much sunshine into our lives.

Wow, what an amazing month we’ve had! We’ve had some lovely walks in the sunshine and new adventures. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next month brings.

All my love always, Mummy xxx

  1. Phew, that was lucky! I have no idea how she managed it, as I’d deliberately positioned myself in front of her so that she couldn’t fall!

  4. Hehe, thank you! Another blogger got in touch with me to tell me that the BBC were looking for someone to talk about having to give up breastfeeding for a news story.
    Indeed, it is Bluewater! I didn’t know you were in this neck of the woods too?
