When you've got new children, it is inevitable that you'll pull out your older children's toys and gear for them to play with and use. For those of you who have been following our blog for a while, you may remember an infamous video of Will showing us how to be a Kickie Monster back in 2009. He loved his bouncy chair so much, we were all very sad when he outgrew it!
Despite the intense workout that the chair got during its life with Will, we felt that it was still in good enough shape to be used by little bro Matt. Sure, it squeaks from time to time, but its still a pretty good baby chair. The funny thing is, the chair was given to us second hand by cousins Patch and Katie during a visit to their house in 2007. Their two children had used the chair too. So this thing was clearly the baby shower gift that kept on giving! The title of this blog might be incorrect... it is actually Bouncy Chair v4.0 (but that just didn't have the same ring to it).
The first couple of months, Matt usually just slept in the chair. He has recently decided to stay awake when he's lounging in the chair, and reminds us of a little baby pinball machine when he kicks his legs. It certainly appears as though big brother Will has been showing him the ropes when it comes to getting a workout and having some fun!
