Dinner time with Ryan has always been a juggling act. I am not talking about the food. It is Ryan that we are juggling because he wanted to be carried and would not want to sit still. So, we will take turn to carry and `entertain' him while the rest eat. Since my younger sister is staying with us till her own apartment is ready by year-end, we will take turns to be his jester. Needless to say, dinner is almost always a hurried affair.
We did the same thing last night but to keep him entertained, I gave him his bolster. And surprise, surprise. We had our 25 uninterrupted minutes of a decent dinner (amidst giving him some occasional attention and encouragement). He was busy playing with his bolster, cooing and talking to himself. And he certainly looks good sitting on that cool Chicco highback.
We would not have bought it because our check with the stores showed a hefty price tag of close to RM700! Unlike a car seat where safety is a great deciding factor, a dining chair is a dining chair to us. Like I said earlier, this little fella is lucky to have many uncles and aunties who are more than willing to shower him with gifts. (And the parents aren't going to complain..hehe)
