Jumper...huh?

OK, so I pride myself in thinking I am in the know when it comes to baby toys, clothes, accessories, etc. Little secret: I might have kept a running list of items over the past few years of things that were a must-have for our baby. Of course they were all very practical items. Ok...maybe not. But, I digress. All this to say that I am apparently not in the know as much as I once thought.

My point: Max and I had a play date last week with Rachel and Eli (Max's cousin). Rachel had this odd looking contraption at her house that I had never seen called a Jumperoo. I decided to put Max in it so he could give it a whirl.

And give it a whirl he did! He loved this thing. Screams of excitement and big smiles filled the room!

So being the kind of mom that I am, I decided then and there that Max MUST have this odd thing called a Jumperoo. As soon as I got home I started the research. Apparently one of these things brand new is $90. Errrr...excuse me?

So being the frugal person that I am [ok, so maybe the word frugal is a bit of a stretch when I am describing myself], I started the hunt for a gently used, but still in mint-condition thing-a-ma-jumper. One week later, we [or should I say Max] is the proud owner of his very own Jumperoo.

Check it out.

This is so cute!! Love the new toy Max!

I didn't think anything could make him MORE talkative, but I guess I was wrong!

Aunt Jen,
The jumpee was really cute and I loved how he moved his legs and was jumping!
He sounded like he was having fun.
Love,
Maddie
