Go Holland!

{Bouncy bouncy!}

Bouncy bouncy started innocent enough. One day during my final days of pregnancy when I was the size of beluga whale, I was feeling especially spent and came up with the brilliant game of bouncy bouncy to avoid too much physical exertion. Bouncy bouncy is simply bouncing Isabelle on the bosu ball, to which she giggles with delight. The idea was that I could bounce her on the ball while staying seated. However, what was meant to be an avoidance of physical exertion backfired into one of the most exhausting indoor activities yet. Not just because she wants to rocket as high as possible, nor because she is nearly a solid 30 lbs, but because she could do bouncy bouncy for-ever.



See, see right there? It doesn't look so bad does it? Oh but if you only knew...



...and bouncy bouncy is contagious...



...and the more bouncy bouncy spreads, the more it augments into worse varieties especially when slightly older kids catch it...



...and dads everywhere are at a loss of what to do or say when they discover their beloved daughter has now caught the worsened strain of bouncy bouncy...

Our weekly playdate with "Ewie" (Evie) and "'Fia" (Sofia) continued... It's not normally the case that dads are part of our playdates but this was the day that Holland played Demark in the World Cup so they were home early and decided to join us.

A reminder that an old toy can be a new toy when pulled out of storage - even if it's not age appropriate. Evie content as can be in the baby einstein - she is so good playing independently, she was happy as a clam sitting in here.



Lots of anti-bouncy bouncy negotiating going on...



It makes me so happy when our toys are actually played with...
