New Tricks & New Toys

[In Hampton's words. Typed by mommy :)]

I have been learning and doing lots of fun new things recently:

Mommy let me try some apple juice and apple-prune juice, and they are both so yummy! My little tummy has been hurting me a lot, but the juice helps. Here I am "holding" my own bottle of juice.

I am getting really good at rolling from my stomach to my back. Mommy and Daddy were very excited to see me do this trick. I can't figure out why. I don't like to put on a show, so I usually do it when I wake up in my crib. I hate being on my back, so I scream for someone to come get me as soon as I've rolled over! Mommy keeps saying she needs to get it on camera. I guess I'll have to do it for her soon during my tummy time.

Daddy put together a fun new toy for me-my jumparoo, and even though I really don't know what I'm supposed to do in it, I'm content to sit and bounce for a little while. My legs aren't long enough to reach the ground yet, so I have a shoebox that I use to bounce on. Pretty clever, guys!

I used to REALLY hate having my diaper changed, but now I don't mind so much. I like to take the time to smile and talk to whoever is changing me. It's not so bad. I try to help out by bringing my knees and feet up. Mommy thinks it's so funny, but daddy seems to get a little annoyed. I like to play with him by lifting my legs up and then straightening them out real fast, just to see how good he is at getting a diaper on me, and I have to admit--he's not bad!

I spend some time every morning on my activity mat, and it is such fun! I like to swat at all the fun animals, and when I get a good grip, I like to put them in my mouth! Yummy!

And mommy's favorite new thing is me laughing. A couple of times now I have just gotten so excited and given a real good belly laugh. Mommy said that she needs to get that on camera, too!


That's all I can remember right now. I'm sure mommy will think of even more stuff and will have videos to share soon!

Oh thank you for the shoebox idea! We have a jumperoo too (the same one) and my daughter is much too short for it. What a great ide!

Hmm... I have the coolest nephew ever! Can't wait to take him to the beach--he is sure to have a great story about that!

He's growing up too fast :-)

I was just thinking about a jumperoo/exersaucer thing for my DD, but wondered if she's too young.

I remember when Hudson was too short to reach the floor in his Jump a roo too. We used phone books, but it wasn't long at all and now it's about time to raise it up to the next level.
