i have decided to not try and backtrack too much with pictures and yadda, yadda...but here are a few with samantha's "bumbo seat". bumbo is the name of the mr. man who invented them. they're wonderful little chairs for babies who can't sit yet. as far as samantha goes, i think it helps her feel like one of the other kids, and she can sit with them and try to play with them, etc, etc. (she is starting to get off her lazy, high-horse, i'm-premature excuse and is beginning to sit more on her own, though. --supposedly bumbo's are a big help in that arena as well.)
tell me something, those who will -- mothers in particular, would you want a bumbo seat for your baby? do you think they'd have a good market in the philippines? they're a totally different class than bouncers and strollers. anyway...they're handy little things.
interesting story: the guy who invented them, he saw them in a vision. he had just been renewed in the lord, had no money, and was desperate for the lord to speak to him. and the lord showed him a vision of the bumbo seat, and the stand that comes with it. pretty cool, huh? it has won more baby awards than any other baby product in its category. i think sm and rustan's would love it. :)
