On the move

My goodness, she is really on the move these days. Now that she is crawling she moves around the house faster than the speed of light it seems. Here, she is checking out the dust bunnies under the stove.
Now it's time to program the PVR and then check out this shiny disc on the floor. (Grandma's note to self - move that lamp!)
OK, enough of that, let's go over here and check out that china cabinet full of pretty teacups. Can you see how she is looking right past the stuffed animal we put in front of her and has her sights set on the china cabinet.
After this visit I ordered a six paneled movable gate/corral type barrier that can be used in any number of configurations to make certain areas of the room out-of-bounds. We put up a pressure gate between the kitchen and hall, got a bag of cupboard locks and plug sealer thingys, and made a list of things to move up and out of the way.

Yes she is on the move, and that makes all of us move a bit faster just to try to be one step ahead of her. I had better tighten up my running shoes, it is going to be one challenging race.

She is looking very grown up in her blue jeans! My how time flies!

But think of all the exercise you are getting chasing after her!

Heather - she is isn't she? I can't believe how much she looks like a little girl and not a baby when she is wearing blue jeans.

Chrisb - you're right. Focus on the positive!

Oh Cuppa. It's been so many year since I tended a wee one. I remember how exhausting it is.

But, oh my - the compensations are so great. Not the least that you'll be in wonderful shape for Spring.

She truly is a dolly. Those blue jeans!
