Have a Holly, Jolly…Jumper!

10 Dec

Man, sometimes I even impress myself with the cheesy titles I come up with!

Last year for Christmas, we bought Jake a Jolly Jumper, and did he ever hate it!    I thought for sure it would be something he would enjoy, but he really never did.

Fortunately, Cole absolutely loves it…

So excited to be in the Jolly Jumper!

Tentative at first, but then he started jumping like crazy!

Then Jake came over, and the real fun began!

They are interacting so much more now...it is really cute!

And of course, this is how it ends!  Jake is happy, Cole is not:)

I am constantly reminded with Cole of how fleeting infant-hood really is.

Jake took so much longer to hit milestones (and will always take longer) that I did not realize how fast they actually creep up.  Cole is such a different experience.  He is not even 5 months old yet, and I feel like everyday he is exploring his world a little more, and is more interactive.  It is such a joy to watch my baby boy grow, and I celebrate the milestones for Cole just as much as I did for Jake, but with more of a tinge of melancholy, as I am keenly aware of how fast everything is happening.

But for today, I am content to watch my baby boy experience the sensation of jumping in his Jolly Jumper.
