Once upon a time, not so long ago, in a place not so far away, Evie didn't like to play. At least she wouldn't play anywhere but on someone's lap. Her playmat was okay for awhile, but she got over that once she decided to sit up. Then wonderfuly on his gallant steed ( ok, the back of my Mom's car), the Jumpy arrived.
Jason has been feeling a little anxious that the amount of baby stuff taking over! So when I found this contraption I jumped on it (pun intended). It is a jumper and an exersaucer in on. Seriously this thing over-multitasks: it lights up, plays music and speaks in three languages. But to be honest I couldn't careless if it played songs from the 70's backwards, because Evie likes it. We are now often able to begin and end dinner without someone holding the baby. Well, at least Jason gets to finish, because we all know he eats to fast, and is therefore finished way before me.
But of course we must be careful about when we use it. Evie is super particular, and has just a small sweet period in which it will work. Evie has to be full and just up from a nap, or she will not self-amuse. But I will take what I can get.
P.S. Sorry my picture is blurry, I wouldn't stop bouncing.
