I just uploaded the pics on the camera to include in this post and remembered another topic I wanted to blog up: my Dad and Sondra (his girlfriend) braved the snowstorm on Saturday and drove to Baltimore for a visit and brought with them a highchair for Hannah. Prior to Hannah being born, I had decided that we didn't need a highchair. I figured she could just sit in a booster seat at the table with us. After all, I'm not into accumulating stuff and I'm definitely not into having a cluttered house--although there's plenty of room, it is a city row home so it's not like there's a lot of free space. Anyway, when my mom was here for Thanksgiving she kept propping Hannah up in a seated position and lo and behold, Hannah liked it! Which freed up my arms to DO things with TWO hands. Amazing. But since she can't sit up on her own (only a matter of time I'm sure), she has to recline slightly so we were putting her in her stroller and just rolling her around, and honestly, that would have worked fine in spite of it being a bit low to the ground, but I gotta admit, this high chair is AWESOME! The seat adjusts from almost completely laying down to sitting up super straight. It also adjusts from a height that fits our pub style dining room table to so low that we could sit on the floor and feed her. The wheels are great because I just drag her around the house in it so she's always close to me. The other day I dragged her into the living room and let her watch Baby Einstein in her high chair. And it folds up so it can be stowed. She looks so cute sitting in her high chair that I had to snap a bunch of pics.
If you're wondering, that's a frozen wash cloth she is holding in the last two. I keep hearing people say it's great to numb the gums of teething babies and since it's free and since she loves eating her wash cloth while she's in the bath tub, I figured I'd give it a try. It's not as much of a hit as a bath tub wash cloth, but she likes it okay.
