Right around the time Hannah could hold her head up for longer than 1-2 seconds at a time, we started putting her in her jumperoo for short periods of time. We alternated between the jumperoo and the bouncer as a safe place to put her when we had to walk away for a few minutes to do something that needed both of our adult hands, like laundry or dishes. At first she tolerated the jumperoo for short periods of time. Being small, she still wanted to be close to us and spend time with her mommy and daddy, and her little legs weren't quite long enough to touch the floor, even at the lowest setting.
Once she hit her 6 month growth spurt, wow--WOW! She bounces off the floor with both feet (she was doing the one-legged hop for about a month) and she can turn herself around to play with all the gadgets and doo-dads on the jumperoo. She's also started reaching for the dangly fish at the tip top of the jumperoo, probably because she wants to shove them in her mouth along with everything else.
A few weeks ago, on a Saturday when they let Mom sleep in, Graham got some sweet photos & video of her having the time of her life. Enjoy!
