Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym Winner

The winner for the Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym has been chosen and notified.

As usual I really wish everyone could be winners and it does make me question doing competitions as I feel stressed out and guilty about not having everyone win. I do love giving away awesome products that I love though.

Anyway, congratulations to Preece who blogs at Bub & Moo for her answer; Laying under the lemon tree watching the wind blow the leaves. Whenever my little ones have been grumpy taking them outside works. I hope it does for the next one due in September too!! 

I loved the thought of doing this with children of all ages and actually found myself dreaming about doing it. I just couldn't get the thought of having a beautiful lemon tree to lay under, dream and connect with the family. Lovely!

Congratulations Preece. I hope your bub enjoys the gym as much as sesame does.

Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym Review and Giveaway

I've spent all morning reasoning with lufflump. Some may call it arguing but without a raised voice I'm inclined to continue with calling it reasoning.

'No, leave your sister alone.'
'Do not lie on your sister's head.'
'Please do not turn that off.'
'Let me move your sister before you lay down on the mat.'
Hello friend
It would appear that I have a three year old slightly obsessed with a 0-12month play gym.
Lufflump is a tad too big
The four month old is also a fan of the Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym. Us parents are also fans. Not that we get down and play like the children but any fun activity for them that lets us have a coffee in peace is a friend of ours.

Sesame can easily reach the toys with her hands and feet and the toys can easily be changed around. She's loving using her feet lately and gets such a shock when she kicks the sound and lights on.
Sesame using both her hands and feet to play
The Tracking Lights Musical Gym makes one of three animal noises (monkey, frog and elephant) before launching into music with the four lights 'dancing' to the music. Sesame loves to follow the lights with her eyes which is great for her development. The lights also help to keep her interested that little bit longer than other play gyms.

Lufflump loves to be the animal that makes the sounds; hopping around like a frog, laughing like a monkey or having a long nose like an elephant. I love that the music can either be adjusted, either loud or quiet. That definitely is brilliant if there are lots of other noises going around or if it's quiet time.

The mat is awesome too as it can be used for tummy time as well. Not that sesame stays on her tummy for long now she knows how to roll over. Hopefully she'll start rolling back onto her stomach so more tummy time occurs.

Lufflump loves playing with the lion and elephant that are on the sides of the arches. Well he likes turning their heads around many times until it irritates me. That boy knows how to push buttons and he loves it!

Watching sesame playing on the Tracking Lights Musical Gym right now brings a smile to my face, it's so wonderful to watch her discovering new things including her hands and feet. She's one happy camper which means the rest of the family are too.
Happy sesame

Speech Therapy

Lufflump has been going to speech therapy once a week for a few months now and has definitely benefited not only his life but everyone around him too.

He started only being able to say gobbly-goo that kind of sounded like proper words and is now talking in sentences with either proper words or very close to it. His personality really shines now and he is even more cheeky.
Making exaggerated sounds
Currently his favourite sentences are;
'your turn' and he gets extremely angry if you don't have a turn at whatever he wants you too.
'no, I don't like it' or 'no, I don't want to', he seems to say this more and more.

Our lovely speech therapist teaches lufflump to sign for certain words and also to say the word. He's on fire with them. 'More' is definitely his favourite, 'finish' is used appropriately and 'milk' is his newest one which we are all still trying to remember to use.

I've noticed his tantrums are less now that he can tell us what he wants, what is wrong or right. It's fantastic how quickly he's cottoned on. He still has a lot of work to do and I think he needs to slow down as when he does the sounds are correct but when he rushes they get mixed up or missed.

I wish we'd done this sooner but now is better than never and maybe earlier wasn't the best time for lufflump like now seems to be.
Check out those lips!
