Our bouncing boy

It hit me the other day, now that Colin can almost sit up on his own, that he would LOVE the Johnny Jump Up.  We made it a big event so Ash would be excited for him to play with a new toy.  She loves it when he does new stuff so I try to make it a big deal so she has that much more to be excited about.

We put him in and as soon as his feet hit the floor he giggled, where was my video camera???  After he got a great leg workout and his legs were almost shaking from fatigue we decided to raise the jumper and turn it into a swing...GENIUS!  With this idea I've had the urge to send cookies and cards of gratitude to the Johnny Jump Up company.  Ashley barely pushes Colin so he goes back and forth which makes her feel like a "growed up mommy" and makes Colin so happy.  It's a great way to keep them happy while I make beds, fold laundry, it's just fantastic!  Yesterday, Ashley practiced counting while she pushed Colin and he fell asleep- Heaven!!

Here are some pics of the kids enjoying our forgotten toy...

That's adorable! We ended up with a floor model jumper and I hated it b/c it was so bulky. We'll definitely be doing the Johnny Jump Up this time around.
