What Stage are They in?

We just moved my little one up from the swing into an exersaucer, and she loves it!  What stages are your little ones in?  Are they swing babies, or have they moved on?  Do you use "baby gear" like a swing or exersaucer?

Oh my - we pretty much skipped the swing. We were given the Graco SweatPeace swing at a shower and used it for him. He never really liked it. He did love his bouncy seat though! We bought the jumperoo for his 4 month b-day and he loves, loves, loves it! I think it was the best thing we ever bought! He is 6 months now and I want to get this for him - 

The age guidelines say 12 months but I think Wesley would love this now (or at least in month or two) with supervision. I think I'll be getting it with the gift cards we received for Christmas.

My DD never enjoyed the swing.

Currently, she's in the stage where she always wants to stand. She no longer sits in her bath. Maybe while I wash her but after that, she pulls herself up and stands the whole time LOL.

My daughter is taking small steps on her own. Other than that she is at the walking toy stage.

My little one is no longer using any baby gear.  She is all over the place and does what she wants.  I just can't believe how quickly she has grown up and how quickly they grow out of all that expensive baby stuff we bought.

DD never had gear phases. We were given at least one of everything: swing, play mat, exersaucer, jumper, walker, bouncy seat, yaddda yadda yadda. DD used them all once or twice and never loved them. She spent most of her time in my arms or sling then became mobile on her own. She crawled at 7 months then walked at 10.
