T.I. Double Guh. er

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:

  1. I'm cheap thrifty. There's a whole back story as to why but that's a dark rabbit hole we don't want to go down.
  2. There is so much crap are 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?
  3. 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!
Today I decided that I didn't care. For about $30, she can kick and bounce to her hearts content! I'm glad I bought it now...she LOVES it!
They move when I hit them?

Here's a video of the action. This is probably only entertaining to me but I had to post it. Once she figured out how to make the bouncer, well...bounce...she got really into it and the looks on her face crack me up. She's concentrating soooo hard!

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 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's simply a photo opportunity but you get the idea!


  1. That is a nice highchair. I like the jumper you showed her in. She looks very comfortable. The bouncy chair is getting her in shape to race you Kim. Time passes fast so get ready to run. I got a thrill watching and hearing Tigger sing his song.

  2. Chloe looks like such a big girl in the high chair. She was really working hard in the bouncer. Looks like she will have it worn out in no time.
