abbey’s first ikea trip

A little late in posting, but I think you will forgive us when you see how sweet Abbey is in this video.

Recorded in May, this is the first documented video of Abbey’s growing ability to hold her noggin up:

Abbey was really well behaved at Ikea, just chilling with Mama and Papa K while Mom and Dad (Lee and Beth) did a little shopping.

The results of that shopping trip (a flipping awesome photo wall) will make their blog appearance in due time.

Special Note: Contrary to appearances, the camera operator did not deliberately follow the teenage girl as she walked from screen right to screen left . . . that was a weird coincidence.

Question: any recommendations on a good inexpensive high chair?

    We recommend foregoing the high chair and just getting a booster seat. We have one of each and really don’t need the high chair (plus the high chair tends to make Grace sweat). Plus the boosters are lots cheaper. If you get one that straps on to a chair it works just as well (if not better than) a high chair.

    Here’s an example: http://www.target.com/Summer-Infant-Folding-Booster-Seat/dp/B000JVXZF2/ref=pd_ecc_rvi_1?ie=UTF8&pf_rd_r=02E43F47SWSC88J6ZY7K&pf_rd_p=447415501&pf_rd_i=B001N44UT4&pf_rd_s=left-5&pf_rd_m=A1VC38T7YXB528&pf_rd_t=201

    Target.com calls them ‘feeding boosters’ if that helps.

    Love you guys!

    I agree with Sarah. I sold my high chair on craigslist and went with the “space saving high chair”… it is really just a fancy booster. And the fanci-ness is definitely unnecessary.

    I have also heard that ikea has great restaurant looking high chairs that are easy to clean and cheap.

    Look at that girl. She is all about holding that head up. I am very impressed. As far as the high chair question, my Mama and I have found that the so-called eating booster worked best with my younger siblings and also with the kiddos who visit us. It was also helpful because ours folded flat and would fit under car seats for trips. Plus, Abbey would feel like a big kid for eating at the table. :)

    Fisher-Price Space Saver High Chair. We have those for our twins and they strap onto pretty much any chair. We’ve taken them to restaurants that don’t have enough highchairs on stock and they’re easy to take along to friends’ houses when we need them. They also fit on my grandmother’s 60 year old dining chairs. Versatile, Easily-Cleaned (dishwasher safe!!), and Easy-To-Use. Oh, and they only cost about $50! Can’t beat that!!

    I love this SO much! I’m sitting in Central Park with coffee and a muffin after Redeemer, and seeing Abbey’s little face made me smile. I actually had a dream that I was talking with Abbey earlier this week. I miss you Wilsons!

    we got the fisher price healthy booster seat! not sure why it’s called “healthy” though! ;)
    it was 25 bucks and straps into any chair and folds down into an easy to carry with you type thingy!

    btw, what did you get to eat at ikea? cause i was surprised at the goodness of their veggie wraps!!!
