This Bright Starts activity station is definitely one of the best baby-toy investments that we've made so far. Belle got great use out of it, and now Corgan is too. And Belle STILL loves playing with it 2 years later! How many toys can you say are loved by your kid at both 4 months old and 2 years old?! This toy is the best babysitter too! Having 2 kids now, I seriously don't know what I would do without it (especially with all of the trips to the potty with Annabelle where I have to leave Corgan alone for short periods of time).
On a pseudo-related note... Corgan has been army crawling like crazy lately. He always uses his right arm/elbow to pull himself and he can get moving pretty darn fast. He's really good at climbing me when I'm sitting on the floor, but today he took it to a new level. I was in the kitchen while Corgan was playing on the floor in the living room. I had my back turned to Corgan and heard some banging that didn't sound like something hitting a carpet so I looked to see what was making the noise. Corgan had pulled himself up on the side table and was banging a small metal pail on the top of the table. He was happy as a clam too (what a strange saying!). Although he's been getting up on his hands and knees lots lately, he still hasn't propelled himself that way. I'm wondering if he's going to "cruise" before crawling? And no, this isn't an April Fool's joke. :)
