And speaking of purchases, I did make a high-chair purchase today. Reese is now eating her green beans and sweet potatoes in this lovely contraption. I was hesitant to buy a high chair for our small apartment...but after a week of trying to feed her in her bumbo chair, I gave up and bought a high chair. Like I've said before, I have a spirited baby, and food was flying everywhere.
While we're on the subject of baby products, I'd like to share my new favorite...an exercise ball!!!!
I wish I had thought of this when Reese was a newborn. I think it would have been a great way to calm her down. Reese has never really been a rocking-chair baby. As a newborn, sometimes the only way to calm my crying baby was sitting on the edge of the bed and bouncing up and down for (what seemed like) hours. This is also her favorite way to go to sleep...And now instead of trying to bounce her on the edge of the bed...while Matt tries to study in the corner, I have a portable bouncer which is great for any room in the house. It's also a workout at the same time. And as someone at church pointed out this week, I'll need to make sure I'm exercising my back muscles everyday to keep up with this baby...she's a growing girl, for sure!!
I'm sure you're ready to see pictures of Reese...instead of hearing about strollers, high chairs, and bouncy balls. I have a million pictures to post, but I'm still having issues with my computer. Every time I plug in my camera cord, it starts beeping and freezes up. I hope I can get it working this week...we'll see.
