Activity Center Fun

We have one of those "activity center" toy things that converts into different uses as the baby grows older. It starts with the mat on the floor and the toys hanging over the baby's head. She would lie there an bat the toys and kick the ball until she was all worn out. We usually would switch between this and the "tummy time" mode where you could move the toys from overhead to down at eye level when the baby is on it's tummy.

Since we never use it in those modes anymore the other day I decided to convert it to it's final "tunnel" mode. The mat becomes a tunnel for baby to crawl through. Of course, Morgan is still working on the crawling, but I put in over her when she was sitting in the floor to see what she would do.

This is another instance where I swear I could see the wheels turning in her head. She was asking "What is this? It looks familiar, but it is different." And "What am I supposed to do now?" It made for quite an entertaining evening.

"Oh no! The walls are closing in on me!!"

I have no idea how she did this, but she is pulling on the toy and lifting up the tunnel. No one is helping her.
