One Awesome Chair

My friend Mindi was so kind as to lend us her "Bumbo Chair" for a while. I guess this squishy seat won the 2006 toy invention of the year, and I do say it is pretty cool. At first Daniel was a little weary of sitting upright, but now that he has gotten more use to his new sitting position, he really thinks he is just one of the big guys hanging out. I have a video of him sitting in this chair that I am going to post soon since it is so much cuter on the video camera.

Can I add that my 3-month-old child is mesmerized by the T.V. I have to turn it off during the day since he will want to do do nothing else if it is on- and I mean nothing. I cannot even feed him since he will turn his head away from me so that he can see the screen! I have never heard of a baby who prefers television over food. (Yes- he is fixed on the TV in this pic)

Krista's oldest (drew) was just like that! No matter what was on - he was glued to it! I am convinced that it's a guy thing and it starts from the beginning of their life. Daniel is getting so big! I need to come meet little DC soon!

Oh my gosh! Those pictures are adorable. Danny is definitely modeling material. Jordan has been using the Bumbo chair that the Jabs brought over and loves it. Last night we sat him up on the table with us while we were eating dinner. Love ya!

Bumbo's rock. They are an awesome invention! I think babies look so cute in them too - it's hilarious!
Luc was totally opposite with the TV. He couldn't care less. He will watch for a few minutes now, but he still is not a big TV dude.
Daniel is so so cute. Have I mentioned that?

Danny is so cute!!! I can't even tell who he looks like now, he's really coming into his own. He looks so funny sitting all upright in that chair. He is getting so big.. I swear he looks older than the last time I saw him which was not that long ago. Crazy!! That is so funny about the TV.. haha its cool to see how their little personalities are shaping and forming.

Okay, I can't believe how big Daniel has gotten! He is so so cute! Isobel loved the TV too...still does (it's really helpful at certain times)!

I'm so glad to know Jack wasn't the only 3-month old mesmerized by the TV! I got a little worried and turned it off completely, for a week.. then I got bored, and turned it back on.
