Baby Girl is a genius. Obviously. No other babies are as smart as she is, I can just tell. She rolled over a few weeks ago, like all baby geniuses do, and thus starts our baby proofing. By baby proofing, I mean that we’ve spent a lot of time talking about what we need to do, and not a lot of time actually doing any of it.
Not a lot of time at all.
Not any time, actually.
Aren’t there baby fairies for things like that?
Anyway, the point is, it happened. Baby Girl rolled herself right over. And, as luck has it, she did this for Daddy while I was out of the house. Daddy, being a man and slightly clueless, rolled her right back over. When she did it again, he rolled her back over again. He was probably getting a little frustrated by the fact that I told him he needed to do tummy time, and she wasn’t exactly cooperating, right about the time he realized that this was a pretty big milestone that he completely forgot to notice. I think he told me he actually had to google it to make sure.Yep, he really did that!
Yesterday, she rolled from back to front! This time, I was home to witness it. When I started whooping and hollering in excitement, Daddy came inside to make sure I wasn’t dying. What a sweetheart :). So, I guess that means movement isn’t far away and, of course, it’s time to baby proof. I’ve been googling what to do about baby proofing and it turns out our house is a baby death trap. Long cords all over the place? Check. Outlets right at eye level for a toddler? Check. Backless fall-through-able death trap stairs? Double check. We’ve blocked all of the outlets, but the rest is going to have to wait for the baby fairies.
Or, for our Amazon shipment of cabinet and toilet locks to show up.
Whichever comes first.
Any advice for a baby proofing momma? What worked or didn’t work for you?
