Sophie loves bouncing. Her favorite thing to do is lay in someone's arms as they bounce on the exercise ball. She also loves her bouncy chair as long as someone is bouncing it rhythmically for her. We took the toy bar off of it since we use it so much - for ease of getting her in and out of it.
On Sunday, we were invited to dinner with a couple in the ward who had a baby almost exactly one year before Sophie was born. This is convenient because they know almost exactly (calendarly, that is) when Sophie will begin new tricks. They asked us if she had started reaching for toys yet, and I said no, but thought, "maybe it's because we haven't given her the opportunity to try it".
So the next day we attached her toy bar back onto her bouncy chair, and it turns out she loves it. Yep, we've been stifling our baby's intellectual growth for our own convenience. Luckily she's pretty resilient, and I think she's caught up to her age level in the past 2 days.
