Who was that kid? And why don’t I remember that time?

I snapped this picture a couple of days ago. The girls were playing with the Graco SweetPeace that we’d brought out for Baby M.J. so she’d have a place to hang while her parents were ringing in the new year with us.
That is obviously not Baby M.J. who is all of 4 weeks old, but our very own Little L, always anxious to explore fun baby things.

I hadn’t let her climb in the SweetPeace while the whole thing was assembled, so as soon as I separated the seat from the base she climbed right in and got cozy. As a baby she didn’t spend a ton of time in the SweetPeace. Maybe because we got it when she was already almost 5 months old, and I was convinced that she was already too big for it, or maybe because she spent all her time attached to my boob and it was hard for me to fit in the SweetPeace with her. Or maybe she did spend a lot of time in the thing and I was just so sleep deprived that I just don’t remember it.
That’s probably the case, because she sure looked right at home in it the other day.
I did find proof that she did used to go in the SweetPeace. If that is in fact my baby. I have no recollection of this time in her life. None whatsoever. I wasn’t sleeping at night and working all day and probably crying through the parts in between. It’s a shame if you ask me; that baby looks pretty cute. I wouldn’t mind scooping her out of that thing and cuddling with her for a while.
Oh. Wait. Maybe that’s why she never spent much time in there…
