Jolly Jumper

Joe is so curious and playful these days.  I read about 3 – 4 books to him everyday and we’re making frequent trips to the library.  I’m running out of stuff to do with him, though.  I keep thinking that I should get him a walker, but I hate to add yet another thing to our apartment, especially when we’ll be away for 6+ weeks visiting family.  By the time we get back, Joe may no longer need a walker!

I decided to try him out in the Jolly Jumper today:

He wasn’t quite sure what to make of it.  He kept turning around in circles and spit up about 5 times.  We need to get a drop-cloth for this boy!

He is such a goofy kid!  He makes the weirdest facial expressions, and sometimes I just look at him and laugh 🙂

Joe isn’t quite as content in his bouncy chair as he used to be.  He’ll still sit in it, but he often strains and grunts and tries with all of his might to sit up in it.  Then, he’ll look at me as if to say, “Get me outta this thing!”.  I have a feeling we aren’t going to be able to contain him much longer!

    He is soooo cute and funny too! I LOVE those Jolly Jumpers – hee, hee 🙂 Have a great trip and enjoy your hair cut (I totally know and appreciate how good that hair cut after baby feels x)!

    Oh Jenny how CUTE! It looks like Joe likes his johnny jumpup. We have a jumparoo which is more stationary, but I bet that Brynley will LOVE something like this in just a few more months! Isn’t it crazy how quick it goes? I was just telling my husband that I can’t believe Brynley will be 3 weeks on Tuesday. It seems like last week Joe was only 5 weeks old! (I think that’s about the time I started reading your blog). Hope you and your sweet family have a GREAT weekend! It’s supposed to finally cool off here this weekend which I am so.ready.for! Time to start feeling like Fall in North Carolina for once 🙂

    You can use them starting @ 3 mos, and Joe has been so curious lately that I needed to do something different. He’s happy to sort of flop his legs and scooch around the floor on his side, but he definitely doesn’t care for the bouncy seat all that much. The bumbo seat is OK, but again he gets bored in it. I’m contemplating getting a pre-loved walker and see how he does in that. There’s a toy library near where we live, and they might have one that I can test out… we’ll see!

    And yeah – what’s with the spit up? It’s like Mt. Vesuvius over here! He doesn’t seem to mind, though, so I’m not too worried.

    He’s precious! I never thought of trying one of those this early. But Ella’s doing the same I-want-to-sit up thing. (Plus the spit-up thing. Ick.)

    CUTE!!

    Check out TradeMe for exersaucers – I got one for Miss G for about $80 and it was in nearly new condition. She’s been in hers for 4 months now – definitely a good investment. Esp when you want to shower and they are crawling all over the place!! 🙂 Wish I lived closer or I’d let you use ours!!

    Love the leggings! I think he’ll really enjoy that jumper when he gets the hang of it (ha, ha, ‘hang of it’! I crack myself up!). 😀

    Oh my word – look at those legs! In those leg warmers – so cute! He’s standing so well in it though! He’s gonna be bouncing up to the ceiling in no time!
