Ron has been looking on Craiglists for toys for Simon so we picked up a few on Sunday and also today. We got him this bouncer so that he can practice his leg muscles. It has a few different modes. One mode will play music whenever the bouncer goes up and down and the other mode plays continuous music. The person who sold it to us advised not to turn it on the continuous mode because it would annoy the heck out of us.
We also got these other toys, a xylophone, a shape sorter, a LeapFrog ABC drum, and a toy by Fisher Price called poppin’ pals.
Simon had his second solid food meal today of rice cereal. Once again he made a mess of himself but seemed to eat a bit more.
Oh and for those who are curious, Simon did finally poop on Wednesday morning, almost 2 1/2 days after his first meal. I was a little anxious about giving him solid food today since he hasn’t pooped since Saturday morning but apparently it is perfectly normal for babies to poop once a week. So we’ll see what happens.
I can’t believe he is 5 months old already!
