the trouble with baby-proofing

is that you can't really do it well while the baby is around. 

ellie learned how to open her first cupboard. i tried putting the heaviest thing in arm's reach in front of the cupboard door, but as you can see, it didn't exactly work out the way i had planned. (cut me a break! we all got up at 4:45 this morning and my brain isn't exactly running smoothly right now.)

(don't worry, we recreated the event for the photographs and i held her hand most of the time.)

anyway, she's a climber. she must have gotten that from her daddy - his nana told me about the time he climbed on top of the fridge and couldn't even be conned into coming down.

ugh! why did the company make these safety latches practically impossible to install? ellie's five minute nap didn't exactly give me time to nail tiny starter holes to help me screw in the tiny screws.

and what do i do in the meantime with my kamikaze baby who isn't really interested in anything that isn't highly dangerous/destructive?

I yai yai, that Ellie! Let's hope she doesn't figure out how to climb out of her crib!

Good luck!! Those kids seem to be able to get into things that doesn't seem possible.
