Educational and enlightening? Yes
Thrilling enough to warrant sharing? Not exactly.
So back to my project.
On Wed I was going through my list of all baby stuff we need and realizing that we are pretty much there except for some odds and ends and the fact that we only have about two toys for the poor kid. So I was looking online, and apparently the cool thing these days are the baby "activity gyms" (and we're all about building healthy habits for life over here).
After looking at about a zillion of them online, I decided as I usually do that I could totally make one myself. I did... and it's got some quarks, but I think for the most part it's infant safe and all that:
I assigned Cam the gym part, which he built with PVC pipe. It took me longer than it should have because I wanted it to be able to come apart and go through the wash, so the pole covers are attached to the mat with buttons underneath. I also made the little loops on top with snaps, so that if he doesn't like the toys I made, we can at least put up something that he is interested in... like socks or cardboard or whatever.
But really, how could he not like this guy?
He's so happy and cuddly you just want to die! I figure, at very least if our baby doesn't like it, then I have a new toy (and I could probably use the gym too at this point).
