What does a Johnny Jump Up taste like?




For some reason Pudd loves to suck on the edge of his Johnny Jump Up. He peeks out like a little prairie dog and sucks away. Very cute. We went around yesterday and sought out a stroller and a pack n play for Will since soon he will out grow his infant seat, and then I won't be able to use the stroller frame thing. I need a pack n play, because at the end of July our dear friends Dave and Laura are coming up from Florida with their 3 kiddos. I will also need it if I do daycare again. Anyway long story short I ended up with a great stroller for 15 bucks and a pack n play for 20 that is in great shape. Plus the guy who sold me the pnp was moving and getting rid of tons of stuff and gave me a Perego stroller that retails for 369 bucks for free!!! I washed it up and I am planning on reselling it at the consignment shop, because I can't stand the Perego strollers. No cup holder for mom....What's that all about?! Plus, it has a basket, but it's hard to get in to. He also gave me a Ikea table and chair set(for kids) and a brand new infant toy set. I am like that when I move, I get rid of all kinds of junk. Today I worked on the house and scrapbooked. Jason was kind enough to let me have a few hours to spend scrapbooking. I got 4 pages done and a few more planned, plus I actually updated Pudd's baby book. All in all a good day. On a sadder note, Samantha, a wonderful girl from highschool, just lost her father to cancer. Jason and I can't imagine losing our parents anytime soon and I am sure she and her family can use our prayers. I will never forget when Grandma died and I went to the store to get some breakfast after coming back from the nursing home, and I felt like the whole world should have stopped and realized that she was gone. I felt like "How can you be making lattes? Don't you know Lenore Thorne just died!?" It was so awful, but slowly, life moves again. I am very sad though that I can't see her reaction to Pudd. She sees him from Heaven, but I can't enjoy it.

I figured out something to do with all the great cards and messages I got when Will was born. I cut out just the greeting and put it on this page. Some of the cards that were really long I just stuck in his baby book, but this worked well for the short ones.

Thanks for the mention. I don't think anyone is ready for the loss. I feel the same way when I am at stores. I just want to make the whole world stop revolving sometimes because it kinda feels like mine has. Good for Pudd sucking on his Johnny Jump up. I don't have one for my kids but the saucer sizer seems to work just fine for all bouncing/jumping needs.

We have an excersaucer too, but we got it for free and who can turn that down? Jason also discovered it can be used as an indoor swing, though it kind of scares me....
