Babyproofing

Babyproofing

Last weekend Steve finished the final touch for baby-proofing of our living room.  We have the two gates up in the two entry doorways, we’ve replaced all of the outlet covers with baby-proofed versions, and removed all of the cords and sharp edges.  What was the final touch?  Steve put a piece of wood inside the fireplace and painted it black.  That way the boys can’t go inside or hit their heads on the brick edges.  It turned out really good.  Steve is quite the carpenter!  We’ll probably paint it with some metallic paint so we can put some magnets on it once the babies get a little bigger.

Now that the kitchen is “almost” done we were able to move the tables out of the living room and have installed two baby gates.  It’s a good thing too because Nathan is on the move.  He can get anywhere he wants to be… and pretty quickly too.  He especially likes anything that is NOT a baby toy: watches, glasses, cameras, phones, cords, etc.

The way he moves it looks like he’s moving on ice because his little legs slip out from under him and he slides around.
