Oh, Mercy!

Mercy's been in rare form lately... the other night she was found using an entire bottle of shampoo and the toilet brush to scrub the shower stall. Today she squeezed a tube of toothpaste into the toilet and flushed.

She is also a budding photographer. You'd think all she sees is someone taking her picture all day long or something. Ahem.

Here is a photos of her taking a picture of me taking a picture of her. Got it?

And here she is taking a picture of Oma and Sam. Like the princess dress in the photo above? And the "babing suit" in the one below? These were on the same night. Just try not to think about the fact that it's November, OK?

Here she is in her sister's sunglasses riding her pony.

I love that kid.

Bumbo Seat: Product Review

One thing I am an expert on is babies. I have had just a few of them. Trust me- there is a big difference between #1 and #10. With #1 you buy all sorts of things you think are just absolutely necessary. With #10 you realize that not only do you not need so much stuff, you no longer have room in the house because there are 12 people filling every spare nook and cranny.

That said, I have to give a recommendation for this chair... Sam even likes it so much his eyes went crossed. In every photo. But still... he loved it. He sat there quietly, and after a few minutes I saw him lean over and fall asleep. Sweet little thing.

It even keeps the older sister entertained.

Seriously- if you only get two things for your baby, get this seat and a good front pack (Ergo is the best). All else is fluff.
