Felix has this magical ability to spit up whenever I put him in the Bumbo… It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since his last meal, the Bumbo just triggers some sort of barf reflex in him. Luckily, it’s easily cleanable (the chair, not Felix).
I went and got a jumperoo to hang in the doorway, because Felix is STILL not into tummy time and I’m trying to get him off his back. (Seriously, the poor thing is sporting the most severe mullet ever – he’s rubbed off almost all the hair everywhere except his little duck tail in the back…)
Anyway – the jumperoo is for babies 4 months and over, so he’s just about there, but it’s comically large for him. I shoved a blanket in there to keep him from going completely sideways, and he seemed to enjoy himself! Although, he’s not so much jumping in it as just twirling. It’s still cute.
Recently Felix discovered his hands – or more specifically, he’s discovered that his hands are DELICIOUS. He can’t seem to grasp yet that he can’t fit his whole fist in his mouth, so he just keeps trying and trying. He’s also been reaching for and grabbing toys you hold in front of his face, which he then also shoves in his mouth, often getting angry because either the toys don’t fit in his mouth, or he can’t fit the toys and his hands in his mouth simultaneously.
One of the portrait places was offering a special for babies under three months old, so I brought Felix in just before he hit the three-month mark. The photographer was great at getting him to smile – pretty impressive since at that point he was really just getting into smiling on demand (and not just for farts).
The shoot took a fantastic turn when Felix spit up all over the black backdrop. Sweeeet.
