Brayden’s doing hard time in cellblock Jewell. What was his crime? Being the fastest baby this side of the Mississippi and developing an interest in getting into everything and being everywhere in the blink of an eye. Yup, today was the day we installed a gate.
Achieving baby gate status is almost a rite of passage. Brayden is 10 mos and 10 days, and he can roll, crawl and pull up on ANYTHING. He is also slowly mastering the art of cruising, a.k.a. walking around things when holding onto them (like the coffee table). This means you can’t leave him alone for a second. He crawls away so quickly all you see is two flashes of two tiny white feet blazing a trail toward the cat/our laptops/cabinets/shelves/insert anything he shouldn’t be in here. So it was time for…
…a gate between the living room and the kitchen. So far, Brayden thinks the whole thing is amusing.
I promise to post a picture or video of the first time he gets really angry and starts screaming and shaking the gate like a crazed inmate. But in the meantime, after having all sorts of fun standing at the gate, he crawled away back to his toys.
