We are quickly learning that baby J requires stations in order to be happy on a continual basis. During his awake time, the cycle usually consists of bouncy chair, bouncy chair WITH dangling animals, floor time, floor time WITH mirror, bumbo seat with toys, watching Charlie, flat mat with dangling toys, walking around, bouncing up and down, dancing, mirror time, singing, crib aquarium watching….etc. All of this is done at intervals throughout the course of approximately two hours of time. It is tiring! And at any moment, he can go ballistic and demand something new. He is SOOOOOO happy and smiley, but catch him in the wrong mood and he reminds me a LOT of the baby at the end of The Incredibles movie (also named Jack!) We added the exercise saucer – Around We Go – today and it was a HIT! (Thank goodness….) He thoroughly enjoyed checking out his new toy as did Charlie… (I looked back and we didn’t put Charlie in this until JULY – I’m guessing it’s because Charlie ADORED the swing and could be in there for hours if we let him. Jack, on the other hand, HATES it).
