whats your baby "play" with

sam is really into his exersaucer, I prop him with a little blanket and he can turn it in a circle and kind of play with the toys

he also has a little kick and play chair thing that he loves to kick b/c then it plays music

his play mat is so so for him, not as interested.

he also loves to lay on his back on our ginormous ottoman and kick and giggle and watch tv and look out the window

it is nice that there are things to entertain him besides me

what is your little on liking?

Well Jordan is under her play mat just kicking, smiling, and cooing away! She especially enjoys that it plays music and has lights.

She also enjoys sitting in her bouncy but I usually leave the toy bar off so she can see around the room or see me.

I plan on getting an exersaucer at some point. I have never met a kid that didn't love theirs.

She still gets tired of playing pretty fast though. I think she will spend about an average of 10-15 min. in one place before she is fussing for something different. A lot of the time it's bc she is tired.

Me. Dad. Sissy.

He's been playing a little with some cloth blocks that DD had when she was a baby. They are really cool. I'm waiting to get out the exersaucer/jumper till he's a bit stronger. He like sitting in the bouncer, but he's darn near rolling himself over in it so that needs to go in the garage sale pile pretty soon here.

Iz really likes her playmat as long as she's not too tired. She likes the music to be on thuogh. She'll kick the toys and giggle away!

She also likes a butterfly that lights up and plays 'twinkle, twinkle'.

I got her a jumper, but she's too small for it roght now. She falls over after a few seconds. But, i think she's gonna like it when she's stronger.

Annabelle loves her playmat, especially the elephant windchime. She'll lie there for half an hour just batting away at it. She also like her inchworm, her dragonfly, and her wrist and ankle rattles.

I'll have to get Julia an exersaucer soon. She wants to pull up and "stand" a lot lately. Often that's the only way to calm her down. She threw a little fit today because she wanted to stand in her high chair. Silly girl!

Today I tried a post natal yoga DVD with her and she LOVED it! She was all smiley and giggly for 45 minutes until she had a meltdown during the guided meditation. The dvd was so funny because yoga is usually so peaceful. This one was 22 new moms and their 2-5 month old babies, so there were crying babies for lots of the video. I liked it though because I got a workout and so did Julia! I guess I have a yoga baby Smile

She also likes her tummy time mat, but not on her tummy, just lying on her back, staring at the light thingy and grooving to the music. I got it at Babies R Us for $30 and it's a rain forest theme by Baby Einstein, I think. I'm trying to get her to be more into her toys, but for now it's just Mommy and Daddy's faces.

Olwyn doesn't really play with any toys. I guess we, her family members, are her toys. She stands on us a lot - and she likes to talk to us. She also spends a lot of time watching DS play.

This is like Matt. He likes to play with us and watch Sara lots.

They're not REALLY playing yet. Sometimes when I put them in their bouncers they notice the hanging toys in front of them, but the most they do is stare at them. They're figuring it out though! Dirol Occasionally the toys get a coo or aah from them.

We have an elephant blankie thing, her rattles, her playmat, the hanging toys on the carseat (There is one a lady bug that she swats at and she gets mad when its not looking at her she yells at it - need to get video of it) and of course me her dad and her brother. Also brother plays with his action figures with her and explains to her the bad guys they are fighting etc...

Eloisa just discovered her hands today! That's my favorite...when they realize that their hands are attached to their bodies and they just stare at them. It'll be her "toy" for a while. I have also never met a baby who loves a mobile more. That's it. Hands and mobile. She is still asleep most of the day and night...bless her.

Maia likes her playmat sometimes. She LOVES her crib's mobile and the mobile that's with her swing. She will coo to those 'friends' for many long minutes. Otherwise she isn't really too interested in blocks or rattlers yet. She mostly just wants us to rock her and chat with her. She is a chatty-cathy. Biggrin And for some reason she loves her changing table. She can be so unhappy and we'll lay her there and she just smiles and coos. Not a toy, but she loves it!

In current times, there are many toys that can entertain your baby while you are attending some other work. These toys can keep your baby engaged for a very long time.

Yeah, I thought a thread this old would be deleted! LOL It's fun to look back in time like this, though.

Lil Miss loves everything that is not hers! She tries to play with remotes,clothes,you name it. The one thing that she really enjoys that is hers is her lawn mower, and lol Elmo (who I might add shakes and laughs like it is on drugs..I do not like that toy!). She cracks up even intimating Elmo by slapping her hand on the floor as it is to amusing for her. smh
