**UPDATE to the Update**: A few days after this post I turned my back for a second and when I turned around Gage was reaching for something so far that his head was nearly touching the table and the whole thing was about to topple over! I have never moved so fast in my life. Thus, the bouncy seat has permanently retired. :(
As I've written many times before, we LOVE our bouncy seat and the fact that Gage STILL loves it! There are times even now when he is discontent anywhere else but there. So it struck me funny this week when he has been sitting up in the bouncy seat. It is becoming more and more apparent that he is growing up!
