Ada went from crawling around the room to taking excursions around the entire lower level. She's everywhere and into everything. She also hates being put in her Pack 'n Play. We weren't at all prepared for her mobility to take off so fast.
And then came the climbing. It started with the cable box (you know, her favorite spot in the family room). Then the dining room chairs. Our arms and legs. The kitchen baking bins. So, I brought down our aerobic step, tossed some toys atop it, and surrounded it with pillows. Thank goodness for pillows.
Because what goes up . . .
. . . must come down.
I know I can't protect her forever -- but this girl has already had some major drops and dings. Yikes! Guess we're going to need to baby-proof more than we thought. Also, I think at 7 months, babies decide that the only toys they are interested in playing with aren't toys at all. Cords, plugged-in computer chargers, plastic spoons that have fallen on the floor from Thai takeout meals, etc.
Alright. You caught me. Baby-proofing can come next. A good, basic cleaning is our first step. And we'll hopefully get it done before Ada takes hers.
