We have been using our Bumbo to feed Otis, but his ability to arch his back and almost get out of it is becoming too great. So, a high chair was needed. But oh, how ugly those things are. Why, oh why, do they make such ugly things for baby? And why, oh why, if they aren't ugly, do they cost so much? I would have loved a Tripp Trapp or similar, and they do seem to be worth it since the child can use it for more than a few months. But my husband would never forgive me for spending so much on our double stroller and then turning around and buying a $250 high chair. So...that leaves us with a plastic monstrosity. Oh well.
Actually, the one we got isn't so bad. It's at least cuteish. Not all animal print or plaid or something navy blue, which all the ones on craigslist were. And it was cheap. And it was at Target so I could run to get it instead of ordering online and having to wait.
Otis enjoyed his first try. He sat and banged his toys on the tray. He looked so big. *sigh* They grow up fast.
