Highchair Antics

Today Lil’ Abner graduated from bumbo to high-chair. The consensus? So far, so good. It’s amazing really, how something so little can make such a huge change in our lives.

Now Abby can join me in the kitchen right next to the island while I prep food for meals. She can sit right next to me at the dining room table while I work.

As long as she’s uber close to me, she’s happy. Baby-wearing can only be done so much, before it gets painful. Especially if you are like me, with back issues. So, I have to mix things up a bit.

Between play-time on the floor, being worn and high-chair time, the jolly jumper, high chair, parenting challenges, baby milestones, baby gear and the exersaucer – we’ve got our bases covered and visit them often.

As of late Abby has gotten quite expressive, check out her reaction to being plopped down in her bro’s handed down highchair. After the jump!

    What's this contraption you've put me in mom? Sure, it's comfy, but somehow - I think you are trying to trick me into submission. Not gonna happen.

    Okay. I can't live without the cups. You got me. But I'm watching you. Don't think I won't whip this on the floor in an instant if I think you're going to step more than 2 feet away from me.

How old was your little one when they began using a high-chair. Did they love it or hate it?
