Feeding table and 6 month b-day

bet you wish you had one of these

 Somebody woke up this morning to a delightful surprise – a brand new triplet feeding table! And somebody woke up to an awful surprise – no more eat-in kitchen. Well, that’s not exactly true. It’s still eat in, just not for grown-ups. Because the instruction manual states quite clearly that neither grown up food, nor grown up elbows are appropriate for this stunning hand-wrought piece. It also says, with equal clarity, that this table is only okay for kidlings six months and older, a thrilling coincidence since this just so happens to be the boys’ six month birthday! Can you imagine? Honestly, November 23 feels more like a lifetime ago than a mere half year. I mean really, what did we know of anything back then? I, if you recall, was even afraid of poop! Now it is veritably my life companion. 

The table – I can report after a single feeding – is quite as much fun as it looks like…even more. The boys adapted to it seamlessly, and are unconcerned at the obsolescence of yet another artifact of infancy: the bouncy seat. Well, I suppose we aren’t quite fully done with the bouncies just yet, but their days are numbered. Bouncies, you see, encourage slothfulness. When you sleep about 17 hours a day, your waking moments ought to be filled with serious endeavor. I’m talking about head control, toy manipulation, rolling over, all the usual touchstones on the path to world domination. 

Clearly the Grinch’s chair is not quite entirely the right color. But he’s an agreeable sort, for a grinch. The slight look of terror and surprise shared by him and the wee man to his left is not fear but hunger, since this photo preceded the actual gruel-fest. 

And now my friends, a scant hour and fifteen minutes into the first morning nap I hear the glorious sound of music: a well conceived piece that starts with a few blips and bleeps and crescendos to a gale force symphony of misery. Tiny and the boys are back in the limelight, and they haven’t lost a step.

    Love, love, love the photo! And the feeding table is fabulous. Happy 6 month birthday to my almost unbearably adorable grandsons – with hugs and kisses from Meema.

    Ok… whoa! Who designed this fab thing? Is there one for quads and quintuplets too? Gorgeous piece of design and the expressions are priceless. Can’t wait to squeeze those cheeks.
    Happy half-birthday boys! xo C & J

    I can’t handle the cuteness!! Is there a mini steering wheels add-on for this table?
