proofing…and we’re not talking yeast.

***Obligatory “please vote for Kellan by clicking here” header***

The time has come.

We’ve been avoiding it.

And now?

Oh, hayyyyyyyy…..

…did you happen to notice these cool string thingies hanging from the underside of your antique chair?…….

And you know we are just one step (ha) away from full on crawling.

It may not happen tomorrow but he has already figured out how to GET. EVERYWHERE. FAST.

Before he really started getting around, in my brain I was like, “He won’t be the kid who uses rolling as his mode of transportation. Pshhh…”

In reality?

That’s my boy.

He rolls everywhere.

He starts in the middle of the family room floor and ends up in the hallway. In the kitchen. On the other side of the family room next to the coffee table.

And he rolls because he has yet to figure out and/or develop the strength needed to get this amount of girth, um, off the floor.

So, mama’s – Help? Tips? Best things you baby proofed that you didn’t think you needed to “proof?”

I’m pretty sure I know I need to cover up dangerous things and cords and heavy objects within arms reach and such but…what about the more, um, non-obvious things?

    I’m not a mom but… chords on heavy things, tape them tight to their surface or move them where little fists can’t pull. like lamps on tables, dvd players, etc. also, pool noodles cut in half make great bumpers for tables and furniture.

    Just keep in mind that you’ll need to do another round of kid-proofing when he learns to read. There’s nothing like the moment your first grader asks (after sneaking into your room and digging in to the drawer beside the bed), “Mommy, what does KY spell?”

    I honestly never thought I’d have to get a 10 lb bag of flour put away as soon as I got home from the grocery store. Um, well, when Riley had been walking for about 2 weeks, he carried it in to my living room, approximately 30 feet. So, lesson here, put ALL the groceries away right away. Btw, Riley only weighed 18 lbs when he did that.
