When Anne was a baby-about 10 months old ironically (as Jamie is nearly 10 months old), we went to a birthday party at Gymboree and had an amazing time. In fact, it was one of the first times Anne was able to play and interact completely with people and things around her for an extended period of time. We dubbed Gymboree "The Greastest Place on Earth". Well, now we have found a place to call that for Jamie. It is the DuPage Children's Museum in Naperville. I've been there a handful of times with Anne and my thoughts on it have been so-so. However, with Jamie, I loved it! He is a super active boy-he loves to crawl around and examine everything he can and he loves to actually play with toys. (This is so different from Anne at this age, who would either look at her toys or play with them for about 1 minute or less-Jamie will sit and play with a toy for several minutes, and even do his best to play with us.) Jamie loved, loved, loved the baby exhibits, where there were new, fun, interesting, and neat toys as far as (his) eye could see. Here's my little man-enjoying himself fully!
