Just HAD to share.

DH convinced me to join him for some veggie burgers tonight,
and we ventured to put Olive in a high chair. First experience was positive! She had fun watching us and chewing on (and dropping) her toys. Was a fabulous thing to enjoy a meal with only one hand and both eyes distracted, rather than both hands and a lap. Yay!

I've just started my highchair research! They all say 6 months+ but if he's nearly 17 lbs which is 9 month size in clothes... that's OK right? ;) What one did you guys get?

So cute!!!
most high chairs are designed for steady sitters, where no spottingis required. I have one that reclines a bit and I put soft stuff around ds and it lasts moments at this point. He is usually fed up by the time the food is served. We just have a fischer price one. I don't love it, but don't hate it either.

Yeah, I threw tons of padding into this one. I still don't trust her to not hurt herself in there without constant supervision - we were just at a restaurant and there were two parents and it was too tempting to think of eating a burger without a baby in my lap!

We have a seat that clips onto the table at home. I have fond memories of mine growing up, and this fits in our apartment. We haven't busted it out yet.

Kinda excited for steady (straight up) sitting; my parents keep inviting us to brunch and each time they.request a high chair before I tell.the staff no, actually, not yet thanks. It's getting old! That and my mom INSISTING she's ready for.solids. ugh. Just because she's grabbing doesn't mean she's ready for food!!

Also, THIS (!):

This is one of her favorite games right now. How is this child STANDING BY HERSELF for long stretches of time (she was doing this for at least a solid 10 minutes when I took the picture)? She's only 4 months old! Slow down, child!

 

Oh and also she's now saying "dada!" ALL the time, much to my displeasure. Only got one Mama :(

Ridiculous(ly cute) on all accounts, Teles! Can't believe these kids.
post #208 of 292

Oh my Teles.... so so cute!   I can't believe she is standing like that.  DS can stand with help for a few seconds, then crumbles.... He is also not really sitting well at this point.  Folding in half after a few seconds of sitting.  He is really trying to crawl though (DD1 was like this early, then it took another month for her to actually start crawling).  

 

Here he is this morning on the bed when we woke up....  He is still completely bald... :)

CM-- so cute! He's starting to look like his sisters IMO.
post #210 of 292

 

 

He's tired of the bouncy chair (and crawls out of it) and shows no interest in sitting.  so we compromised on him lurching around in the walker.  and today he sampled grapes.  OY!

"Petting" our dog Aura. A very tolerant dog! She tends to grab and pull - I think just an attempt to chew on the dog. That's all she wants to do these days is chew on anything and everything.



Just over a week ago she started rolling from back to tummy.


She's quite flexible in the tub. Lol!

Our short-haired cat loves the baby but the long-haired one wants nothing to do with her. I figure that's related to how long it takes to untangle their fur from her tightly closed fists

OMG they are so cute HOP, teles and Jenny.  I can't believe how big they are all getting.

 

Here is Liam up on all fours.  He is rocking like crazy and can crawl with his knees and then launches himself forward, but can't figure out how to move his hands yet.....

OMG They are SO CUTE!!! 

 

Chloe'sMom - I can't believe how he is up on all 4s!! My little guy is trying to go the army crawling route, he has the motions and strength but needs to put them together..
 

here is my little guy a few days ago - he is 5 mo and 4 days old :)

post #216 of 292

HoP, he gets cuter every day!  And Naomi and Rissa and Mila and all the boys are too much.  Man, I never cooed over babies before!

 

Here's Miss L recently (ish)...

Buko-

do you just GNAW on that little face!  what a precious little lady!  aaaah!

 

So, today, my little guy started lurching forwards.  he gets up on his hands and toes, then knees, then throws himself forward.  if he's like his brother, he'll be crawling in less than 2 weeks, and sitting up much later.

Just what I was thinking!

 

Also, that picture of Naomi slays me. I love her crazy hair! I've gotten some flak on Facebook about posting her monthly pictures way earlier than the 18th of every month but I just take them the day of her monthly doctor visits so I actually remember.

he's obsessed with doing adult things.  we were looking at the computer late at night so he joined us. 
in that bottom picture he's doing a full plank.  he's on his toes!  i can't get him lurching yet and don't have a video camera, but he's moving forwards like a little frog.  aaaaaagh, crawling!

He's amaaazing, HOP! I love it!

He's always seemed like a super wise soul to me. Doesn't surprise me that he's into grown-up stuff!

I hadn't been able to post pictures. Was driving me crazy! You all know how I have to share a gazillion pics...

Still, the good ones are on the real camera, so I'll limit myself to three - no, five tonight.


Papa's rendition of Itsy Bitsy Spider. It also happened to be Father's Day.


Reeeaching for kitty.


Chewing on a kale "bone." I've also given her a carrot and an apple. I so don't want her to be ingesting anything yet, but she loves tasting and playing! And even with two teeth, anything she manages to scrape off comes right back out of her mouth.


Finally, I let one of the sweet boys I nanny hold her. They were mutually pleased. Glad I waited, since I didn't see it working out so well 'til then!


Aaand this is how she gets herself in and out of a sit. I didn't understand it for a solid 48 hours - I just kept coming back to her sitting, when she'd been on her tummy, or on her tummy when I'd last seen her sitting. Finally I caught the transition - ah-ha! She's fluent (yet still sneaky) now.
