As Charlotte is getting a bit older, there isn't much that can distract her for too long before she needs to be walked around, played with or otherwise entertained. In the past, she could lay on her play may for hours! But now that she can roll over like a rock star, those days are long gone. Currently, she is love with this baby activity seat that my sister gave us from her kids.
Edushape Sensory Balls during a recent trip to Costco and Charlotte LOVES them. She loves to eat them, roll them, see them bounce - it's definitely a keeper. It's also nice to see an immediate reaction from her with them...unlike Raffi the Giraffe. I got this as an impulse buy on my birthday (and in my defense, on sale) but Charlotte is clearly too young for the rocking giraffe. But it's still super adorable and matches her nursery. :)
Afterward, we headed to Coronado to visit Grand Pappy and Uncle Adam (and since Justin had a regatta out of the Coronado Yacht Club, he just met us at his dad's house). Dad made some especially tasty spaghetti and meatballs and then just played with Charlotte.

|I imagine that she'll look at us like that again when she's a teenager. :)|
