So proud of herself!

16 Dec

Hadley can pull herself up on furniture now. And, she then gets so proud of herself.

She is happy but it scares us a little. Considering she has no fear or concept of gravity- she will pull herself up and then all of a sudden let go. We both are following her around as she tries her new tricks on the furniture.

And, we have a lovely plastic fence that goes around our Christmas tree because the tree is not as stable of a pull-up tool as the ottoman or dining room chair but Hadley has no concept of that either.

Last year, when I was lamenting about the ugliness of baby gear, I did not realize that it only got worse. Well, now we are outfitting our house with plastic gates and baby fences and outlet covers and power strip covers and special cabinet hooks and special locks. Wahoo for more plastic! But it is all in the name of safety (and sanity).

We could have a walker amongst us very, very soon.
