Sisterhood of the traveling bumbo

Carter’s new thing is sitting up. Which sounds like no big deal to you and I … but when your head is 3 times the size of the rest of your body and you don’t really have ab or neck muscles….sitting up is quite the chore.

But it’s all he wants to do. If we lay him down, he fusses. If we stand him up, he fuses. He wants to sit sit sit (and well, chew on his feet). So Regina and Geoff loaned us a little seat that supports him (so he doesn’t roll over) and he can sit all he wants – it’s called the Bumbo seat. Regina’s sister in-law gave it to her after her son used it, and once Regina and Geoff’s daughter is born – Carter will give it back to them. So, I guess the traveling bumbo is quite the hit.

He spends a lot of time in the bumbo still trying to eat his feet.
