The Exersaucer

I kind of hate exersaucers – they are garish and plastic and take up a lot of space and annoy me. 

But how could I say no to a face like this?

I was all set to buy an exersaucer off Craigslist and mentioned it to my mom. She said “Oh wait!”. A friend of hers, Michelle, was kind enough to pass on her exersaucer that her kids no longer needed. So we got it here on Saturday, and Kale was pretty excited about it right away. One of the toys was a bit scary for him, but three days later and he is playing with all the attachments and jumping up and down and thoroughly enjoying himself. Mooki hates to admit she is fascinated too:

He’s also discovered a fun new noise, that just started today – the raspberry.


This weekend also marked another milestone. Ross and I went out for the first time without Kale. His Gran came by and babysat for us, and we went to Horizons Restaurant at the top of Burnaby Mountain for lunch. It was foggy, but the restaurant was above the layer so it was really gorgeous and sunny up there and everywhere we looked there was a blanket of fog over the rest of the view. It was completely surreal to go anywhere as a couple without Kale – with his  constant noises and squeaks and groans and heavy breathing. I missed him, but I freely admit I really enjoyed a few hours of adult conversation. He was, apparently, rather well behaved and slept for quite a while and then enjoyed some banana with his Gran. 

Today Kale goes for his 6 month growth and shots appointment – this will be the last scheduled one between now and one year old. I hate these appointments but I am curious as to what Kale weighs and how much he’s grown.  Some friends came over last week with their 6 week old baby and I am still stunned at how much Kale has changed since he was born. For that matter, I am stunned at how much we have all changed.

  1. I hate ours too. But it’s so useful for showers! He just sits in it (and has since he was 4 months old) and can’t get out.
