Bouncy Trounsy Flouncy Pouncy. Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun. But the most wonderful thing about Tigger is I'm the only one!
I used to sing this song to Chloe in my tummy because she bounced around so much. Here's a video for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about. This will make sense in a few seconds...
I got Chloe a bouncer today. I've been putting it off for a few reasons:
cheapthrifty. There's a whole back story as to why but that's a dark rabbit hole we don't want to go down.
is so much crapare so many wonderful things to buy for kids these days. My philosophy on most if it? My parents didn't have stuff like that growing up and I didn't have a lot of it either. We turned out all right...I reckon Chloe will survive without most of it ;). It builds character to make your own 'toys.' Tupperware and wooden spoons, anyone?
- She's a few days away from 3 months old and I really don't know how long she'll enjoy a bouncer. 4 months? 6 months? I didn't want to buy it if she was only going to use it for a few weeks.
|Check out these toys!|
|They move when I hit them?|
We were trying to do a photo shoot to showcase the cute, new outfits that my mom made for Chloe. Chloe got one outfit into it before she crashed. We'll try again later but here is one of my favorite outfits!
|So sue me. I couldn't decide which picture to post so I posted them all.|
In other news, Chloe is loving the 'sitting up thing' so much that we decided it was time to put her at the table with us. Mark and I started out eating dinner at the table every night when we were first married. Around the time I got pregnant, we got lazy and started eating in the living room with t.v. trays. It's important to both of us to sit at the table with our family for dinner. That's how we both grew up and it encourages communication between the family members...so Chloe is now using her high chair and we are back at the dining room table EVERY night. This picture is not at the dinner table...it's simply a photo opportunity but you get the idea!
