The Bumbo chair

The day that Aaron's doctor told us that Aaron needs to sit up more we pulled out Peter's old Bumbo chair.

The Bumbo is a baby chair that helps babies, whom can not yet sit up on their own, sit up straight without falling over. It is perfect for feeding time, and having baby practice holding their head up.

Now that Aaron's little head is pretty strong we have been putting him in it for 10-15 minutes at a time a few times a day, usually at meal times so he can be part of family meals and get in the habit of sitting at the table (he starts on solids in Dec!).

For the most part Aaron loves his chair, however sometimes he doesn't feel like sitting up and he will start to cry.

On One occasion I had the camera and told Brett that Aaron wasn't happy, so could he please pick him up.

Being the literal person that Brett is, he did pick him up.

And comforted Aaron WHILE Aaron was still seated in the Bumbo seat.

It was one of the cutest things I have ever seen Brett do with the kids.

But, not quite as cute as when Aaron falls asleep in the Bumbo and I am forced to take an obscene number of pictures...
